Question about Dishwashers
If you know how to use a multimeter you can get to the heater connections and check the resistance of the element. it chould be about 26 ohme. Also the over heat protector thermostat should measure zero ohms. Make sure all wires connected to the heater and thermostat are solid. There might be a broken wire in the door loom from the lom flexing or the controller may not be sending power to the heat circuit.These are the pissibilities. if you measure the wire coming to the heat circuit and no power comes then the controller is the problem. if the controller is electronic check thatb there arent any burn marks on the controller. If you fimd a poor soldered joimt on he controller you can solder it. good luck
