Question about Dishwashers
Check if it is plumbed into a hot water line or cold water line, and is the water heater for the hot water line working? There is also a heating element for the water used also to dry the dishes. Check if that element is heating up at the proper times. The element could be bad, or I have seen them just become disconnected. You will have to take the bottom panel out to access it to check it for continuity. If it checks good and was connected, you may want to check the switch in the timer. It could have burned contacts not allowing the heating element to heat up at the proper times. There may be a timer cam chart taped to the inside of the door panel to check it. You will have to check the various terminals for continuity per the chart. An Ohm meter works good. Make sure power is disconnected from dishwasher and label the wires prior to removing them from the timer for testing.

Your heating element has probably burnt out, but it's possibly just a break in the wiring or a bad connection to the element.
You need to gain access to the element to do some resistance/continuity testing to find out which of the above is the problem.
Hope this helps.
