Water not heating


Heater

This is the most common reason why your dishwasher is not drying. To check this remove the toe kick, remove one wire from heating element and check ohm reading. Compare the reading to the tech sheet or service manual. If it has no continuity at all replace the element. Make sure the element is getting power. To do this connect voltmeter to each lead of the heating element then select a dry cycle you should have 120 volts if not the problem is in the control. If it does have power and does not heat up replace the element. The heating elements is easy to replace9f39612d-286d-4ab9-9ae7-61bc229b8105.gif.

Timer/ Control

This is not as common as the heater but can fail. To check this select a dry cycle and check to see if the heating element has power if it does not replace the control . If the element does have power and does not heat up replace heating elements

Dryer will not heat up


You have to check and see if the Circuit breaker is not kicked. One throw of the Breaker makes the Motor run and the other gives it the heat. If that is not kicked then it is more than likely the Heating Element or one of the sensors attached to the Heating Element.

Dryer does not heat and continues to run/will not shut itself off


This is probably due to a faulty heating element, something the average do-it-yourselfer can replace. Disconnect the power supply, then refer to the owner's manual for procedures to remove the front panel from your specific model. If your dryer has a toe-kick plate in front, that's all that needs to be removed.

1)Locate the heating element heat shield, a box on the lower right side of the dryer.
2)Using a screwdriver, pull the two screws at the front of the heat shield. Remove the front of the heat shield or, if it is on a hinge, flip it down.
3)Remove the wire leads from the heating element terminals by pulling on the leads. To avoid damaging the wires, do not grab them when you pull off the leads.
4)Remove the holding screw on the side of the heat shield that connects to the heating element.
5)Remove the heating element by sliding it out of the heat-shield box. Install a new heating element and secure it to the heat shield with the holding screw on the side.
6)Reconnect the wire leads to the new heating element by pushing them onto the terminals. Place the heat shield front cover back into position and secure it with the mounting screws.
7)Replace the front panel or toe-kick plate and reconnect the power supply to the dryer.

Heat kick on then off


these are heat cycles,
the click you are hearing is the thermostat turning the element on or off, most dryers try to acheive a temp of 160 - 180 degrees, when reached the element shuts off for a bit to cool down and not scorch your clothes
you do not have to worry about this

Heating elements will not heat


If you dryer is running but not heating then you may have one of the following problems.
Make sure you have 220-240 volts to the machine. If one leg of you breaker has kicked you will only be getting 110 volts this will cause the dryer to run and not heat. Simply kick the breaker off and back on to fix.
If you have enough voltage then you may have a bad thermostat, thermostats or heating element. I recommend you take your heating element off and look for broken lines.check continuity if possible. If the heater is good then go to the thermostats. Check continuity. Replace if you find a bad one. Good luck and I hope this helped. mca0824@aol.com

MDB7600AW water level


I'm not sure if it is suppose to fill above the heating element. The heating element may just be there to dry the dishes instead of heating the water. Try using a pitcher to fill the unit manually to above the heating element. If water drips out from below the kick plate then you know the water is not suppose to go that high.

Let’s say the unit is indeed under filling.

Check for a deformed shaft on the water level float. Remove the kick plate and look for where the shaft of the float touches a micro switch. Often the shaft is bent sideways and only engaging the micro switch indirectly. Straighten by hand for a temporary fix or reinforce the shaft with aluminum tape and sewing needle. Keep the retrofit light weight to avoid problems with water overflow.
