DRYER WONT STOP RUNNING


IT may be ,The heating element has broken. This element is contained within a "drum" at the lower right of the machine (front view, front panel removed). Test to confirm problem - remove both wires (one white, one black) from the "drum" (porcelain standoff, 3/8" wrench brass nut). Attach a multi-meter to one exposed brass screw and to a ground with multimeter set on ohm test (conductivity test - touch meter tips and meter jumps). Test both brass screws this way. If the meter jumps on either test, the element is "grounded" (broken and touching ground). This confirms the problem. Further confirmation - Remove the two screws at the base of the circular "cover" at the front end of the heating drum. Lift the cover and with flashlight, examine the heating coils.

How to Replace the Dishwasher Heating Element


If you have determined that the heating element has gone bad in your dishwasher then you may be wondering if you can easily replace it. Actually for many dishwashers the replacement is not that hard. The most important part is that you turn off all power before attempting to do any work!

The heating element is located in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. It will be submersed in the water when the dishwasher is running. To find it, look for a thin circular tube in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Some dishwasher will have a cover over it. To get to the heating element the racks will need to be removed from the dishwasher and the cover, if there is one will have to be removed.

To replace the element you will have to remove the front kick plate of the dishwasher. A few screws will hold it in place and they are easily removed. Once you are underneath the tub you can locate the terminal ends of the heating element. Make the wires do you know which one goes where to put them back properly. Then pull the wires from the ends of the heating element. Make sure that you are pulling on the terminal connector and not just the wire to remove them.

Once you have the wires removed from the ends of the element, then look for the lock nuts up against the bottom of the tub that holds the element in place.
With a small adjustable wrench or a pliers you can loosen the locknuts. When the nuts are off of the ends of the dishwasher heating element you can then reach into the tub of the dishwasher and gently work the element loose and pull it up and out.

Place the new element into the holes and then securely fasten the new heating element in place with the lock nuts. Use a wrench or pliers to snuggly tighten the nuts. Replace the wires and the kick plate. Replace the element cover if there is one, the racks, and you are ready to roll. Turn the power back on and try it out!

How do you replace the heater coil on this unit


First of all you did not even begin to mention a model number. They are not all the same. Having said that the concept of changing a heating element is pretty much the same for those with through the lower tub mounts.

1. Turn off all power to the unit
2. Open the lower kick panel
(It is usually in 2 pieces) The top piece being fixed and the lower piece being adjustable to the floor. Remove BOTH panels.
3. Locate the 2 heating element terminals that pass through the bottom of the tub and disconnect the wires.
4. Losen the retaining nuts on the heating element. Push up on the elment to make sure it is free before totally removing the nuts.
5. Remove the nuts and then lift out the old element by opening the door and lifting out the element.
6. Note the position of seals and washers on the OLD element
7, Assemble the new element with the tub side seals and washers. Leave the under side washers off until after you place the new element in the dishwasher.
8. Install the underside seal and washer then install the nuts loosely.
9. Check the position of the element inside the tub. (Align as necessary)
10. Tighten the heating element retaining nuts on the under side of the tub. (DO NOT over tighten as you can damage the element.)
11. Install the 2 heating element terminals makeing very sure the connections are TIGHT. A loose connection will cause the new element to fail prematurely.
12. Connect power and test for leaks.
13 Leak test complete install both lower kick panels.

Task Complete!

The nut that attaches to the heating element keeps cracking in half allowing water to leak on the floor. Does anyone know what might cause this problem. Thank you in Advance for your Help.


That usually happens when the material the "Nut" is made from is iron, steel, usually it should be brass or some other non ferrous metal, the constant heat/cool cycle fractures a ferrous one, try to get a brass or even maybe a copper "Nut".

Leaking from heater coil


I just had the same problem (surprise!)
The solution is located under the machine, where the heater elements go through the tub and have an electrical connection underneath. First, turn off your breaker, then check the brass "nuts" that secure the heater element. You might find that it or they are loose or even split. A very simple fix is to replace them with the right part. However, this is an indication of the cheap engineering of the machine, and probably you will encounter other such bad engineering in this machine. Replace and tighten the nuts and all should be good again.

Need service manual and wiring diagram


ther are not many places for wires to be hanging from , it should be obvious where it should go, as far a leak the most common place is from the heater connecter(s) small brass lock nut on right side of unit, 2 of them holding the heater in. the brass is quite soft andusually cracks straight down the entire nut and needsto be replaced.

I've got an Indesit WIDL126S and it is leaking. The water escapes from behind a brass plate with wires on. The brass plate is held on by a 10mm nut. Do I need to buy a bearing and seal kit?


this sounds like the heater you are looking at. try tightening the 10mm nut a bit. if that doesn't work. loosen the nut, pull heater out and use some sealant. why do you think you need to replace bearings and seals?

How to fasten heating element to pot


Had a little problem loosening the nut from the heating element, but once I got it off, cleaned all parts , went to an auto supply store and was lucky to find the right size gasket ( it was a part for a Nissan auto ) , used Permatex silicone gasket sealer, put all parts together, tightened the nut real tight, made all electrical connections, tested the pot with water, heated up real fine , no leaks , Problem solved.
