SOURCE: Water not heating up
DSBELL, see if your model has a serial number in the range of FR3701001 to FR5008380. If so they had a quality issue with the heater. The element itself should be round and not angular. Call for service, it will be covered. If this is not the case you will have to ohm out the heater, should read between 10 and 30 ohms. If that's ok, make sure the door switches are operating ok, this heater runs through the nuetral side of that door switch. There is also a high limit thermostat on the right side of the motor that should read closed. Catriver...post back.

Welcome to FixYa.
Based on your description it is likely a faulty control board, unfortunately. Here's what you can do to check...
**Turn off any power to the unit...safety first**
You'll need to access the control, this is best done by way of removing the front panel, i.e.
Once to this point, identify the wires on contact PF2 and inspect the closest relay to it, which will be K1.
If you are capable, measure amperage from PF2 when the unit is idle there shouldn't be power present, you'll require an ammeter.
Having said all that, it may be obvious when you visually inspect the control, if it's burnt up or if the relay looks burnt inside.
This is an example of a damaged control but it may not be as extreme with a heater relay defective...
Let me know what you find and I'll try to help you further if necessary. For the control should be available at "repairclinic.com"...but if not let me know I may have one left.
Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Disconnect the power source to your dishwasher before you conduct this or any other test. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.
Locate your dishwasher's heating element. Open the dishwasher door and look into the tub. It is the thin, circular tube at the base of your dishwasher. It may or may not be covered. If it is covered, remove the lower dishrack, and then remove the cover.
Your heating element is going to have two metal terminals. One at each end. Each terminal reaches downwards, into the base of the dishwasher. Mentally mark the area where each terminal enters the base of the tub.
Now you need to gain access to the heating element's wiring. You can do this by first removing the lower kickplate panel of the dishwasher. There will be at least two screws (but maybe four) holding the kickplate panel in place. They are located either on the top or the bottom of the panel. If the screws are located on the top, you may need to open the dishwasher door in order to gain access to them. Close the door to remove the panel, though.
Now look into the lower access area that you have just uncovered. Pinpoint the area where the heating element terminals extend through the base of the dishwasher. They will each have a wire connected to it. Label each of the wires so that you will be able to properly reconnect them later. Now you can pull the wires off the terminals.
Each wire is connected to a terminal using a slip-on connector. Grasp the connector and pull on it firmly.
DO NOT pull on the wire itself. Pull only from the connector. You may decide you need to use a pair of needle nosed pliers to help you.
Both terminals are secured in place with a lock nut. You can use a crescent wrench or a pair of pliers to losen, and then remove each lock nut. Reach into the dishwasher and lift the element out. Discard it. Situate your new heating element in place of the old one. Slip the terminals through the holes in the base of the dishwasher. Replace each of the lock nuts. Use a crescent wrench or a pair of pliers to tighten them in place. Now reattach each of the wires - remember, you labeled them earlier so you'd know which one leads to which terminal. Put the lower kickplate panel back in place. If you removed a heating element cover, replace it now. Replace the lower dishrack, and close the dishwasher door. Restore power to your dishwasher.

F2 is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
