You need to check the thermostats in the heater circuit as well. The element is held in place my 2 nust from the bottom where the wires attach.

Trying to find the heater circuit


You can, first, meter the hi-limit thermostat for continuity. Then, meter the heater element for Ohm's resistance. If either test bad, replace them, if neither test bad, replace the main control board.

Fast and delicate lights flashing on Hotpoint fdw60


Them 2 lights flashing indecates a heating fault.

For this you will bee to pull machine out and remove the side panels. From there locate the heater and with a multimeter check to see if the heaters open circuit. If so you will need to replace the heater element. If the heaters fine then on some models theres a thermostat next to the heater. Check this aswell if fitted

2 green flashes. hot water is blazing hot set at 120 degrees.have the energy smart unit model#ee2h50rd045v . what is wrong?


2 green flashes is 'High Water Temp.'
http://waterheatertimer.org/Whirlpool-Energy-Smart-electric.html

Typical energy smart manual:
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Whirlpool-energy-smart-electric-manual.pdf

3 flashes is Temperature Sensor failure.
4 flashes is Upper element
5 flashes is Lower element

Troubleshoot section says:
1) Make sure access doors and insulation are installed.
2) Check elements for resistance of 5-25 ohms (if element has a short in center of element, it might not trip breaker)
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-test-water-heater-element.html
3) replace element and reset control system.
Buy ordinary 4500 Watt element from hardware store.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-replace-water-heater-element.html

4) I also suspect the self-diagnostic control box.
Manual says: Repair parts may be ordered through your plumber,
local distributor, home improvement center, or by calling
1-877-817-6750.
You need serial number, product number and model number from label on side of tank.

Clean LED is blinking, manual says check heater


Heater element shorted, a resistor on the control board is visibly fried which makes it inoperable. Estimate to replace both is at least $300. This is terrible design, should be a protection fuse on the control panel. Chances are this will happen again after the repair, design has not been modified. We invested our money in a replacement w/a one year warranty. Rather than 90 days for parts and service.

My clean light is flashing....call service to check heater?


f the clean light flashes 7 times, pauses, then repeats...

When the dishwasher doesn't sense a water temperature increase, it will stop working and lock the functions (clean light flashes 7 times, all buttons are non responsive). It does this as a safety in case the element is broken and feeding electrical current into the water. Check the element for damage (burnt/shorted).

To clear the flashing light you will have to reset the console. Do this by closing the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cycle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

If the issue returns, you could have a problem with the heating circuit (ie. element, thermostat or wiring). It rarely happens but it could also be the door switch not engaging properly when the door is closed (slightly bend the door latch down making sure it doesn't hit the door when you close it).
