Unplug the power cable, remove the service panel and follow the next steps : - Remove one of the wires connected to the heating element and check with a multi-meter the element's resistance. In case you can't read any result,you should replace the element. - Check the water level switch- The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub.Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react, you should replace it. - Control panel - look for loose wires. If you think that your main control PCB timer have failed, you may be able to get it tested, and if faulty, get a re-worked (repaired one) much cheaper than a new one. Good luck !

I just replaced mine. I ordered the part from Kitchenaid and just got it today. I turned the power off at the breaker, turned the water valve off under the sink. Two screws hold the machine in place under the counter top. I slid the machine out about 8-10 inches and disconnected the water supply tubing on the bottom left side of the machine and then was able to pull the whole dishwasher out from under the counter top. on the bottom in the back are two white plastic hex nuts with a wire connection going to each. I pulled the wire connections off each and loosened the white plastic wire nuts. Then I went into the washing tub where the heating elements is. I shook the two contact ends loose and pulled the element out. I put everything back in the reverse of this. You will then need to reset your panel by pressing the sani wash and the heat dry buttons back and forth a couple of times. All the lights will then go on and the machine will reset itself. Give it a go. Best to ya!

youll have to run a whole cycle again and pay attention to when the heating element comes on again. Once its hot the plastic will be soft enough to remove it with a tight cotton rag. Use you oven mitts for protection. Hope this helps

Loosen element-retaining bolt plus clips in dishwash chamber. Upend machine and take base off (held by four crosshead screws). Disconnect spade connectors from end of element and gently tap/push old rubber block through. Element will drop out with retaining rubber.
