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!

Bottom oven bottom element doesn't heat

Phil. If you do not have voltage at the element, then the Electronic Oven Control ( EOC ) has failed. Part number # 5701M403-60

In order to check for the correct voltage at the element you will need to remove power and pull the range out of its installed location and remove the back panel of the range to gain access to the wiring and element. CAUTION ! I cannot stress this enough ! There are dangerous voltages in this area!! After the panel has been removed, return power to the range,set the lower oven to bake, and check the voltage at the element. You should find 220-240 volts between the element terminals with them connected to the element. If you do not have the proper voltage then you will need to replaced the EOC.

Will not start

It's very likely that your heating element is shorted and will need to be replaced. Unplug the dryer and remove the lower front panel. There are 2 spring clips between the upper front panel and the lower front panel. Use a flat screwdriver and slide it over these clips and then pry these clips down to unclip them so that you can hinge the bottom panel down and then off. The heating element is in the bottom right corner inside the silver heating canister. There is one screw coming in from the left holding the element inside the canister. Remove the screw and remove the front panel of the heating canister. Disconnect the wires to the element and then the element will pull straight out. Here is a link to the part.

How do you replace the bottom heating element

Turn off power to oven, remove two screws on heating element mount, pull heating element from wall of oven, remove two screws connecting electric leads to heating element.

To install new element, reverse steps. Make sure screws connecting heating element to wires are very tight -- otherwise they will arc.

How do i change the heating element.

The heating element is accessible through the lower front access panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Remove the two screws attaching the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet then slide the panel down then off the cabinet. The heating element can now be accessed and repalced.

Remove the screws securing the heating element to the heater box then pull down the heating element to remove it from the heater box.

Disconnect and label the wires for the heating element and the components. Remove the components from the old heating element then transfer it to the new heating element.

Slide the new heating element up into the heater box and secure it in place. Align the slots on the top of the lower front access panel with the locating tabs on the front access panel then slide it into position and secure the bottom of the lower front access panel to the cabinet.

Kenmore electrical oven

Trying to better define the problem....

Do you have any cuts, holes or "shorting" or tin-foil/aluminum around your bottom bake heat-element? If so, you may need to replace the baking Heat Element. (Ensure you do not use aluminum foil around your heat element to prevent your oven from getting dirty)

To replace your baking heat element, with power off; remove 2 screws securing the bake element. Slightly tug and pull towards you for about 3 inches or so and disconnect the connecting wires at each end. Then completely remove the heat element and install new in reverse manner. Whats' you're model number?

HEating element

The heating element is located in the bottom left corner. You will need to remove the drum for access. Once you have the drum out of the way, look for a square box with wires attached. There are 10mm fasteners that hold the heating element to the vent. Rome the screws, mark the wires and positions then remove the heating element. Before replacing the element make sure the thermal fuse and the high limit switches are not faulty.
