There is a chemical you can buy that is a dishwasher cleaner that should do it. Wal-Mart or an appliance store should have it. If it is bad, you may have to do it several times. Ultimately you may need a new element if it is real bad.

Dishwasher is not heating water and wont dry dishes.


Hi

The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element for mineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution (Don't scrub the element hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wiring connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading (ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
