The heating element is used to help dry the dishes. In most dishwashers, the heating element fits around the screen in the bottom of the tub housing; it looks like an electric oven element. The heating element doesn't malfunction often, but it can burn out. If you suspect a faulty element:
Step 1: Test it with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. Remove the dishwasher's bottom access panel and disconnect one of the power leads to the element. Clip one probe of the VOM to each element terminal. If the meter reads between 15 and 30 ohms, the element is working. If the reading is higher than 30 ohms, the element is faulty and should be replaced.
Step 2: As needed, replace the heating element with a new one made for the dishwasher. Disconnect the electrical leads to the element's terminal screws and remove the nuts or other fasteners that hold the element to the terminals. From inside the tub, lift the element out. It may be held by clips and ceramic blocks in the tub, but you can easily thread it past these spacers. Set the new heating element in position, reconnect the power leads, and replace the fasteners that hold the element in place.,,,,,,,,,,,,please rate it

SOURCE: water doesn't heat up
The most common reason for no heating is the failure of the heating element which is located beneath the lower spray arm. Inspecting it for breaks and damage would be the first step. If you do not see obvious damage, after triple checking that poser is off to the DW, pull the kick panel from your DW and check where the heavy gauge wires connect to the two terminals of the heating element.
Please post back here with further questions or what you found, OK?
