Question about Dishwashers
Firstly, if you haven't done so already, you need to disconnect your dryer from the electrical supply immediately as failure to do so will result in a large electricity bill and cause further damage to the dishwasher.
Unfortunately, this is most likely a failure in the control module - most likely the relay for the heating circuit has failed in the closed/on position. Unfortunately, the control module is one of the most expensive parts to replace so if the dishwasher is old, you might want to consider replacing it.
It's possible to get a replacement relay (dead cheap) and solder it onto the PCB, but I don't recommend this as a DIY fix.
Hope this helps.
