You can search for a manual online. I can not remember which website but they are out there. In a nut shell here is the process. first remove the top by taking out 3 screws on back. Slide top panel back and lift up. Then remove 2 screws from the top corners of the control panel. Pull up and forward on the control panel. Disconnect all the cables. They are color coded so no worrys. remove 4 screws from top of front panel and 2 screws right under the drum behind the door. Lift off front panel. From there you will see the heater on the bottom right. It is easier to get to if you remove the venting and such but you should beable to get it done from here.

    Get the service manual here. It might not be the heater either but the service manual has step by step troubleshooting. I thought mine was the heater and bought one but when I got it opened up and replaced did not correct the problem. More troubleshooting tomorrow.

The "clean light" is flashing


Indicates control hasn't sensed a rise in water temp during heat cycle. Make sure you hear the water being circulated during wash cycle. If so the heater, control board, thermostats or wiring are most likely bad. If heater, therms, and wiring check good its usually the control. When fixed press Heat dry- Normal-heat dry-Normal or High temp- air dry-high temp- air dry to reset control.

Dishwasher not heating water already replaced in line heater element no change


Hello

Possible causes;

Incoming Water; Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat;The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.

Heating Element/Drying Fan; The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon

Heated dry cycle won't heat during drying cycle. New Maytag MDB6795aws just installed.


If it won't heat then you have a possible wiring issue, a blown thermostat, or a open heater. If it's brand new you should have a 1 year warranty from Whirlpool/Maytag. Call them and have them dispatch a service person.

Flashing programme lights


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. That means the control sensed that the heater in the D/W did not operate 3 times in a row. So the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. Use a meter to see if it reads open; if so orders a heater assay it will come with a new control replace it too. If heater checks good then press in sequence normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry, normal wash, heat dry three times within 6 sec and all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that D/W does not heat its own water and incoming water temp should be 120. The D/W will maintain that temp. When starting your D/W first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your D/W this ensures your unit fills with hot water and not cold


Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

LG Dishwasher LDF6810ST


Hi,
As I had the same problem, I worked on my machine and found out the heater unit was not working (it is a brand new machine ! - remark : as I moved overseas, LG did not cover it with their warranty).
But back to what I did : I ran the check program (instructions can be found in the Service Manual) and verified it was sending voltage to the heater on step 36. So I checked the heater unit (in the bottom of the machine) and found it was burned or open. So I ordered a new heater assembly ($40 on eBay), replaced it myself and am completely happy with the results.
Remarks : the heater is powerful enough to heat cold water to the temperatures required (I don't have hot water in the faucet); it seems that the heater also produces heat for the drying cycle (my dishes were completely wet at the end of the cycle before, now they get completely dry). My only disappointment, mentioned by some in the forum, is that the outlet during the drying cycle is in the bottom of the door, so steam condensates into droplets on the kitchen floor. But now I get clean dishes, and this machine is amazingly silent and efficient. Good luck to you !
