Whirlpool dishwasher heating element overheating

The heating element in our Whirlpool dishwasher is getting extremely hot. The model number is GU1100XTLB1. We noticed it because it smelled like burning wax or plastic. When we opened the dishwasher, we found the culprit. What is wrong?

There's only one pipe for water is it a cold water dishwasher or hot model number adp755


If there is only a single water inlet then it has to be connected to the cold water connection. Generally dishwashers use internal heater elements to heat the water during relevant wash and rinse cycles.
Hope this helps.

Have a whirlpool dishwasher model number 854241615810 The problem is that it doesn't complete a cycle and the start button flashes 3 times then a pause then 3 times . The water doesn't get hot eithe


The three flashes is the error code for a defective heating system. Usually this is a bad heating element that needs to be replaced, though it can also be a faulty control circuit or thermistor.

On model du81qdwgq1 is hot or cold connection


You are supposed to connect the dishwasher to the HOT water side. Although most dishwashers have a heating element to heat the water, they are normally installed this way to reduce the amount of time the heating element is on. This not only extends the life of the heating element, but also reduces the amount of electricity required to heat the water.

Another helpful hint: Before you run the dishwasher, run the hot water tap until the water runs hot. This will fill the dishwasher with water that is already hot instead of the cold water that normally sits in the line after the hot water has been shut off for a while. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Glasses in top rack not getting clean anymore.


-Have you changed the dishwasher soap recently? What are you using? Is the powder remaining behind in the soap dispenser?
-Have you removed the filter in the sump area, cleaned it and removed any debris under the filter. (watch out for broken glass that is almost always found in 5 year old dishwashers.)

-You are running water at the sink until it gets hot, but you may still have problems if the heating element has failed. Recommend you check that element. If you can get to the element, check resistence of the heater to see if is has any at all.
If heating element checks out good, the next common problem is a failing wash pump motor.
