CustomerJ from San Antonio TX

Replaced drying heater element due to lime scale build up.

1) Turn off water
2) Place receptacle to catch water before removing water fitting.
3) Disconnect water tube from valve.
4) Remove screws from mounting skirt connecting washer to counter/woodwork.
5) Slide washer out of slot paying attention to water tubing and electrical wiring. Ours was installed in such a manner to allow removal of water tube with a little flexing. Wiring as a simple 110 plug so simply unplugged.
6) Tilt washer onto back.
7) Connections for element will be close to floor one washer on back.
8) Gently pull electrical connections from heater element to remove.
9) Remove nuts holding element in place.
10) Tilt washer upright. (May require second person here to help balance washer)
11) Open door and remove heater element. There are two clips holding to bottom that require a little dexterity to navigate.
12) At this point simply reverse the above instructions to reinstall. The insulation around the housing was a little tricky to navigate while sliding the washer back into place. It has a tendency to hang up on the woodwork.

CustomerGary from Indianapolis IN

Dishwasher heating element bad

I could not reach the heater element nuts from under the dishwasher so had to pull out the dishwasher. I removed the screws around the front of the dishwasher and pulled it about half way out before the water inlet pipe and the electrical wires stopped me. I shut off the water, unhooked the copper pipe, and unhooked the electrical wires (shut off circuit breaker first). Pulled the dishwaser out so I could remove the element nuts and wires to the element. Removed the old element and installed the new one - the old nuts would not fit. I went to a local appliance parts store and found that my element is no longer made. I had the correct replacement element but you need to order the nuts also. Luckily, the local store had a small brass nut that worked. Reattached the electrical wires to the element, pushed the dishwasher half way in, reattached the water inlet and electrical wires, pushed the dishwasher all the way in and scewed back into the cabinets. All is well now and the dishwasher is working much better.

Dishwasher wasn't heating the water and dishes were not getting clean.

This isn't a how to fix it....it's what part was bad. I had originally contacted the local Maytag repair center and the owner swore up and down that our problem had to be the thermostat and not the heater. He said he had only replaced maybe 5 heaters in 15 years. But our heater looked like heck, with hard water deposits and all, and it wasn't that old, but we went ahead and ordered the thermostat from PartSelect, which came in a day. The problem wasn't the thermostat, so we ordered the heater from PartSelect (again, only one day delivery) and our dishwasher is working again. The heater coil actually had a hole in it from some sort of corrosion. My 18-year-old son did the repair job in a jiffy.
