Heater core went bad

I took off the bottom 2 plates covering the bottom of the dishwasher. I shut off the power to the unit.There are 2 insulated sleeves with a clamped wire attached to each side of the heater core. I removed the 2 wires and unscrewed the sleeves and lifted out the old heater coil, to install I reversed the process. I found this repair to be a piece of cake, and of course my dishwasher worked like a new one saving me at least $400.00 for a new dishwasher, plus the pain of taking out the old unit and installing the new dishwasher. Thanks for your wide selection of repair parts.
