Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15953 Built-in Dishwasher
The heating element in our Kenmore Elite 15953 dishwasher broke tonight. We noticed b/c water started leaking from the kitchen thru the basement ceiling. The heating element looks like it's snapped through in an area not attached to anything. It had been looking rusty. Is the heating element easy to repair ourselves? Is there more to the problem than just the heating element?
You have to pull out dishwasher to replace the element.The element is easy to replace once you have pulled dishwasher out.This enables you to reach the area that you need to reach.It is common for a element to brake.On a newer dishwasher ,I would say it must have been defective if it just broke in half.Nothing electrical in a dishwasher can cause it to brake.

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
