Question about Whirlpool 24 in. ADG7540 Built-in Dishwasher
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 for mineral deposit on it, clean the deposits using a soft brush and a cleaning solution (Don't scrub the element hard). If this doesn't resolves the issue then remove the panel and examine all the wiring 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.

The first thing you must know is that your refrigerator should be
set at 37-38 degrees. Anything at 40 or higher and you are risking
food born illness (food poisoning) or spoiling your food. Place your
magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator.
Set your dial on your refrigerator to the second lowest setting. (If
your refrigerator is already equipped with a digital thermostat,
simply set it for 37 or 38 degrees and do not move on to the next
After 2 hours, check your thermometer reading. If your reading is 38
degrees, there is no need to go higher and you are ready to put your
groceries in. Be sure not to open and close your refrigerator during
these two hours or your temperature reading will be incorrect.
4. If your reading is higher than 38 degrees, move your dial up to the next coldest setting and repeat the steps every two hours until you reach the correct temperature for your refrigerator.
Once you have reached the correct refrigeration temperature for your
refrigerator, place the magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator
permanently and watch for changes.
Typically, your refrigerator temperature will need to be adjusted with the seasons, a higher setting in the summer and a lower setting in the winter.
