Pots and pans requires HOT water. If your heater is not working it will not run the cycle. Possibly the heating element is bad or has become disconnected. Only has two wires coming in from the bottom of the dishwasher (underneath behind the kick panel). Do not touch them unless you know power to the DW is off. Heating element is nothing but a high resistance wire in a tube so you can check it with an ohm meter. Continuity means it is good. AS LONG AS that continuity is not with the outside tube.
Not hard to replace it but up to you to decide if it is more trouble than you want to do.
It could be a malfunction heating element, thermostat or both. In most cases it's the heating element. Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heater tags. In case you get this voltage there, you should replace the heating element. In case you can't read the 115/220V on the heater tags, check thermostat's for continuity (you should read a low resistance). In case you can't get any measurement. You should replace the thermostat.

Hi, the flashing green light indicates a fault in the heating circuit of the appliance.
You would require to have, and be able to use, a multimeter to fully test the components. Check the circuit of the heating element (26 ohms). Check for an open circuit heater cut-out. Check pressure switch open circuit (connections 11-14). Check wiring and connections between module card, pressure switch and heater.
If all above is OK, replace module card. The heater and the module card are the most common causes of the fault. The heater is on the underside of the appliance and is attached to the top spray arm feed tube. The module card is in the facia of the appliance.
Welcome to FixYa.
The hi-limit thermostat and NTC (all in one) are actually directly on top of the heater body, aka instantanious water heater. You'll also see a micro-switch which turns the element on once water begins to circulate, that is the flo-switch.
Having said that, the issue is likely the heater relay on the main control board, specifically a burnt solder joint for the heater relay. If you visually inspect the control you'll likely see it right away.
Let me know how you make out or if you need any help, good luck.
This means you have an open heat circuit. It could be either a bad heating element, a bad hi limit thermostat, or a bad control board. The heater and hi limit therm can be tested for continuity with an ohm meter. Most of these units the heater will come with the control board in a kit. Hope this helps.
Does sound like the element is bad, confirm with a multimeter, should see 120v across the element terminals, if voltage is present check for continuity of the heating element with the power off, no continuity equals bad element.
I f you have warranty on this please call them, you have a defective
D/W.Unless there is no charge for repairs ,don't spend a dollar on what
is going to be a on going problem ahead.To explain how to fix this is
what the manufacturer should have done in the factory and not made 1
dollar off of this defective D/W until it proved this to be ready .What
has happened to Quality Control ? Does it no longer matter ? Very sorry
,you should seek a refund ASAP.
Remove the screws on the back of the unit and take off the back two panels.
Facing the back, there is a thermostat toward the back-middle-right... it has a brass nut that holds it in place and two wires attached to it. (my wires were pink). Check this first: check the wiring here, and if you have a multimeter, check the continuity between the two terminals. It should be closed (conducting) when cold.
You should see the wires for the heating coil on the left side. If you have a multimeter, check the resistance across the left and right terminals (the middle terminal with green wires is ground). If there is no continuity, the heater is dead.
Finally, the only other cause would be the relay (hidden off in the right-rear corner of the unit) or the control panel.
It could be a malfunction heating element, thermostat or both.
In most cases it's the heating element.
Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heater tags.
In case you get this voltage there, you should replace the heating element.
In case you can't read the 115/220V on the heater tags, check thermostat's for continuity (you should read a low resistance). In case you can't get any measurement. You should replace the thermostat.
