    What is the ohm reading for the lower heating element
    For model number mdb7709awq2
    Hello Dean, Thank you for the question. The element should read between 10-20 ohms. Hope this helps!

    My heating element has some sections that have a white coating on it. Some areas it wiped off, but in the back corners, closest to the terminals, it is almost baked on. Also, on one back corner near the terminal, it appears to have a rough surface, as if it has rust on it. Any ideas what would cause this, and is it an issue that i need to replace the heating element?
    For model number MDB8959AWB0
    Hi Kurt, Thank you for your question. Usually when something like this happens with your bake element it means that something has dripped on the element. Which may be the reason that the part has stopped working. It sounds like you will have to replace your bake element, but you can test it with a multi meter to double check if it is working or not. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

    This heating element does fit my KitchenAid dishwasher. I ask cause the one picture don't look like it. I am guessing that it is because it is bent. One more thing. Does all hardware come with this part.

    Hi. Dishwasher was working then stopped with normal cycle flashing. Tried pressing all other buttons...nothing. opened door and closed. no buttons responded, no flashing. dishwasher wouldn't start or respond. if i hit circuit breaker, each time, normal cycle button flashes...nothing else and keeps flashing. please help! what part would you recommend. thank you, eileen
    For model number MDBH979AWS3
    Hello Eileen, thank you for your question. There are a few parts that could be the issue. The Heating Element Assembly is one. If lights are flashing on the control panel, the heating element assembly might have burned out. The heating element assembly heats the water up to operating temperature. After a set amount of time if the temperature isn't reached a light on the control panel might start flashing. The heating element assembly can be checked for continuity with an Ohm meter. Drain Pump - If lights are flashing on the control panel, the drain pump might not be working properly. For two-wire drain pump motors check them for continuity using an Ohm meter. If it's defective You'll need to replace it. Drain pumps are not repairable. Touchpad and Control Panel - If the lights are flashing on the display the entire touchpad and control panel assembly might be defective. If the display works but the dishwasher functions are all out of synch, or some of the buttons don't respond properly the entire touchpad and control panel might need to be replaced.I Hope this helps!

    The dishes are not getting properly clean. During a cycle, we opened and the water was only Luke warm. I am thinking the heating element could be the culprit, but how can i be sure that will address the problem.
    For model number 66513189K802
    Hello Alan, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the High Limit Thermostat,PartSelect Number PS11743423. You can also test the element, PartSelect Number PS11748194. When at room temperature, should measure about 6 to 15 ohms. Hope this helps!

    My KitchenAid dishwasher stop working. The normal light started flashing and wont stop. I started to hit the other buttons and now the cancel light came on and is flashing with the normal light and both will not stop flashing. Someone told me it was the heating element so i replaced it and it did not fix the problem. So could someone please tell me what is going on with it.
    For model number KUDP02FRSS0
    Hello Jason, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the control panel with touchpad, the ribbon cable and the control board. Also try unplugging or disconnecting the power to the dishwasher for 5-10 minutes and see if any error codes come up. Hope this helps!

    The dishwasher goes through the normal washing cycle than stops and all the lights go off. I replaced the 2 limit switches, 1 in the control panel and the other under the tube with no results. In addition, all three wash cycle lights are always on or blinking.
    For model number KUDK03ITWH2
    Hi Randall, Thank you for your question. There are some parts that you will need to check to see which ones are causing the issue. You will need to check the bi-metal fuse, the door switch, the circulation pump and motor, the high limit thermostat, the door handle, the electronic control board and the heating element. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

        Burning smell from dishwasher
        So one day passing the dishwasher while it was running, I noticed a rather pungent burning smell. Yikes, I shut it off!
        I took apart the pump housing at the bottom inside the dishwasher, expecting to find some kids toy plastic bit had got caught and had jammed the motor or something. But nothing there, and my dishwasher has a little screen to keep just such things from getting to the pump anyway. Hmmm.
        So, ran the dishwasher again, seemed ok now.
        A week later, same thing, burning smell. Pull it apart again, but no sign of trouble. But I know something is up, so I pull the kickplate and have a look underneath... Way at the back I see a red wire that looks a little melted, but it's hard to tell, so I pull the whole dishwasher out. Sure enough, one of the heater wires is melted and burned, and the plastic locknut holding that side of the heater is badly scorched. Looks like a little electrical fire, I'm lucky it didn't get out of hand!
        The heater still tests ok with an ohmeter, but I don't trust it now - order the heater and replacement locknut and washers. Didn't need to order washers, they come with the heater, oh well.
        Heater removal and replacement is very straight forward, but I added some high-temp gasket silicone sealant (Ultra Blue) around the seals as I think the original problem may have ben a bit of water leakage causing a short.
        Took about an hour to pull the dishwasher out, remove the heater and install the new one, put a new terminal on the heater wire, and put the whole thing back under the counter.
        Working great now. But not a problem I expected to have with a 2-year-old dishwasher!

        Dishwasher heater broken
        I ordered this part after the sanitized light on my dishwasher was flashing. The dishes were no longer drying. To replace the part, my husband pulled out the dishwasher and unscrewed some nuts (accessing under the heater through the side openings). The entire repair took under 15 minutes, and works perfectly. I have to mention that the heater was shaped differently than the one it replaced, but was a perfect fit in the clips.

        Stopped washing in cycle, LED code flashed 6 times
        Since I had manual from initial installation I knew code meant heater was malfunctioning. Went to Sears, Lowes..no parts to repair. Instructed to go to appliance repair shop, closed of course...ordered online instead here and received in 2 days. Repair took 20 minutes. Super easy! Do not attempt to use adjustable wrench to tighten, use socket set as plastic electrode casings will be compromised. Takes some tork. Probably saved $100-$150 repair call. Wife was pleased. I was suprised how easy.
