Hi


The water is not heating as the heating element has gone bad or a fuse has blown which is preventing heating element to turn on. To check the heating element you'll need to turn off the dishwasher, unplug it. After unplugging it check the heating element formineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution(Don't scrub the elemnt hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wirin connections to the heating element. Now, use a multimeter and check for the resistance reading(ohms, Rx1) for the heating element. The multimeter should display between 1200-1600 ohms or 1.2K ohms. If it is less than 1200 then you'll need to get the heating element replaced. Also, check for any blown fuse around the element. This should resolve your issue.

Thanks

Daniel

Heating problems Jenn-air microwave - jmv8000bds - it heats while unused for a while but to warm more than the first item is not working - what is broke? jeffrey40@yahoo.com


First, check to make sure that the air vents are clear. Secondly, is the cooling fan running? If these are OK, (how old is this unit?) it's probably the magnetron is old and weak....... Put in a container with 2 quarts of cold water and run it for 10 minutes. It should boil water after about 4 or 5 minutes and keep boiling it for the remainder of the timer preset. If not, the magnetron is losing power.

Pull the dishwasher out of the slot. There is a motor underneath that runs the pump to drain it. The usual cause is the it has a bad connection.

Does the dishwasher model GDB742RJS0 have a heating element or does it require a cold and hot water hook up thanks


Yes, your dishwasher has a heating element. You only need a hot water hook up. attached is a picture of some of the parts in your dishwasher. The heating element is #1. It is located at the bottom.

Hope this clear things up.

Samsung SMH 8165 ST E13 Error message. Oven


I own the same Microwave and it just gave me the same error code E-13. I was heating a large plastic coffee mug of cold water using the "beverage" control. The only thing out of the ordinary was I used very cold water from the Fridge. Maybe this had something to do with the Max time error. Hopefully this was a one off error.
