Hello. This machine does not heat. I've already checked reset without solving the problem. I've repeatedly examined the back and underside to see if I can locate the heater element. For the life of me, I can't see any access. I guess there has to be some means of getting to it - otherwise a faulty element could never be replpaced! I don't mind how much I have to dismantle to get to it. Any help will be very much apprciated.

Hello. Manufactured by Whirlpool, Kenmore dishwashers have an electronic control panel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your dishwashing cycle. If an error light is blinking on your dishwasher's control panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinking lights on your dishwasher control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needs to be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the control panel, contact Sears to service your Kenmore dishwasher or consider troubleshooting the appliance yourself. 1Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button on your Kenmore dishwasher for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher control panel. 2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash," "Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after the other, in fairly quick succession. 3 Wait for the dishwasher to run a short diagnostic test. 4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the end of the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your Kenmore dishwasher.
Wait for five minutes if the motor stopped itself and has been stopped for less than 10 minutes. This occurs in the event of an overload. If this is the case, the dishwasher will reset itself in approximately 5 minutes.
Turn off the dishwasher and unplug it from the power supply. Wait 10 minutes and restore power.
Select a "Hi Temp" wash cycle, followed by a heated dry setting on the dishwasher. Repeat step 3. This will reset the dishwasher.
If you have hard water, glasses can look spotted and cloudy even after cleaning. Sometimes changing the dishwasher detergent can help. The easiest solution to clearing up glasses that start to look cloudy is to add some vinegar to the bottom of the dishwasher before you start a cycle. Simply add 1/4 of white vinegar and it will clear up your glasses very well. You should see marked improvement after the first time you do this. If they are not crystal clear then simply repeat the process until all of the cloudiness is gone. In fact I recommend to using a little vinegar in each cycle to maintain the clarity of the glass. Note: you can pre-test this by rubbing some vinegar on an individual glass with a cloth. If you cannot remove the cloudiness by soaking it and rubbing vinegar on it then it is possible that the glass is etched due to harsh or cheap dishwasher detergent and vinegar will not solve the problem.
have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained
about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I am tried in vain
to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installed
them in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also
found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess
things up bad... So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out
the heating element to make sure it is working... Here is a tip that
will help you with the online buying...
light that comes on indicates that the control is locked and you reset the
control to solve this problem. To unlock/reset the control press and hold the
NO HEAT DRY/AIR DRY/RINSE ONLY button for 15seconds. Please get back to me if
you have any other questions.
