A couple of things to check.look inside the unit,remove the screens and on the right side you should see a float make sure there are no holes in it or water.next look in the box where the heating element is,you should see a round black disk that is above the element (this is the high limit).there is a little button in the middle press it in and see if you hear a click.The way the heat cycle works on this unit is when you first turn the unit on it fills, the water level brings the float up and hits that little metal probe which is a switch, the power goes through that then through the high limit, the power then continues to energize the contactor which then pulls in sending the voltage to the heater.

I replaced the heating element on my Fridigdaire dishwasher, but it still does not heat up. What else can cause this problem?


You have somewhere a thermostat. Most likely that is not working or it is bypassed.

How to Replace the Dishwasher Heating Element


If you have determined that the heating element has gone bad in your dishwasher then you may be wondering if you can easily replace it. Actually for many dishwashers the replacement is not that hard. The most important part is that you turn off all power before attempting to do any work!

The heating element is located in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. It will be submersed in the water when the dishwasher is running. To find it, look for a thin circular tube in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Some dishwasher will have a cover over it. To get to the heating element the racks will need to be removed from the dishwasher and the cover, if there is one will have to be removed.

To replace the element you will have to remove the front kick plate of the dishwasher. A few screws will hold it in place and they are easily removed. Once you are underneath the tub you can locate the terminal ends of the heating element. Make the wires do you know which one goes where to put them back properly. Then pull the wires from the ends of the heating element. Make sure that you are pulling on the terminal connector and not just the wire to remove them.

Once you have the wires removed from the ends of the element, then look for the lock nuts up against the bottom of the tub that holds the element in place.
With a small adjustable wrench or a pliers you can loosen the locknuts. When the nuts are off of the ends of the dishwasher heating element you can then reach into the tub of the dishwasher and gently work the element loose and pull it up and out.

Place the new element into the holes and then securely fasten the new heating element in place with the lock nuts. Use a wrench or pliers to snuggly tighten the nuts. Replace the wires and the kick plate. Replace the element cover if there is one, the racks, and you are ready to roll. Turn the power back on and try it out!

Heating problem on dishwasher


Your dishwasher has an electrical heating element that helps to dry the dishes. If the element is burned out, the dishes won't dry properly, and you need to replace the element. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page.

I have a Westinghouse SB915SJ*00 dishwasher. It runs right through a cycle but does not heat. Any suggestions? Thanks.


Hello

The majority of dishwashers are not connected to hot water from the mains but heat up the water internally using the heating element, located in the tub of the dishwasher, controlled by a thermostat. When the dishwasher has a fault with heating, the program will run but not complete and will show an error code on the display panel. Dishes won't be cleaned properly and the detergent won't dissolve.

If your dishwasher does bring in hot water externally from the mains to check the water is warm and there are no problems with the inlet. If the dishwasher heats internally then it is most likely a faulty heating element or thermostat. A fault like this will usually require a replacement part and a repair, but you can check the heating element with a voltmeter to ensure that it is the cause of the problem before calling out for a service engineer.
