Is there a video showing how to replace the heating element for this machine? How difficult is the job? I have a suspicion that it is not working
For model number WDF760SADB2
Hi Ronald, Thank you for your question. There is a video on our website that you can reference on how to install the heating element. The dishwasher in the video may not show exactly like the one you have, but it will give you a general idea on how to install the part. You will find the video under part number PS2355742. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

I noticed rust on the heating element and on the tub walls. I wiped down the heating element and tub walls and ran several cycles alternating between lemon juice and dishwasher cleaner. I am still seeing rust building up on the heating element. Should this be replaced?Also does this part come with new mounting nuts or do they need to be purchased separately. thank you!
For model number 665.13299K116

The element nuts, PartSelect Number PS11755402, Rubber Washer PartSelect Number PS11743934, Shield PartSelect Number PS11753266 and retainer PartSelect Number PS11741626. These parts are not included with the new element PartSelect Number PS9494999. Hope this helps!

My dishwasher doesn't always dissolve the detergent pod and when that happens it doesn't do the heated dry either. Do you think it would be the heating element?
For model number 66513269K110
Hi Kim , Thank you for your question. That would be the first part that I would suggest checking. You should test this part with a multi meter to see if it is working correctly. You may also want to test your thermal fuse as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

How to install the heating element for the dishwasher model wdt790saym2.I want instructions specifically for this model to pull the dishwasher from under the countertop and replacing the heating element before ordering the parts.
For model number WDT790SAYM2
Hello Sri, Thank you for your inquiry. To pull the dishwasher out from under the countertop. Shut off the electricity at the breaker. Tip: place a piece of tape over the breaker switch to ensure no one turns it on while you're working. Turn off the water under the sink. Take off the front cover at the bottom of the dishwasher to expose the wiring. Use a voltage meter to test the wires at the dishwasher to ensure the power is still off. Remove the electrical box from the unit. Unscrew the wire nuts and pull apart the wires. Start with the green wires, white and then black. Disconnect the drain line from the dishwasher and the water supply line from the dedicated dishwasher stop. Open the door to the dishwasher, then remove the screws secured to the underside of the countertop. Raise the legs using a wrench. Slowly pull out the dishwasher ensuring the wires are out of the way. Also, the drain line should come out with the dishwasher from under the sink. Tip: Place a drop cloth or piece of cardboard in front of the dishwasher to prevent scratches on the floor. Also, before turning electricity back on, make sure to tape or cap off the ends of the three exposed wires. Although we do not have a repair video for this exact model for the heating element, I have included a video link for a similar Whirlpool heating element. Hope this helps! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Co8dQ7rzTMQ&index=25&list=PLD984081941E1E8CD

Hello, the element in my dishwasher is 0 in all scales and does not work. Thanks a lot. Michel
For model number KDTE334DSS
Hi Michel, Thank you for your question. If your multimeter is showing a reading of zero, then you will need to replace the heating element in your dishwasher. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

The dishes and silverware on bottom are not coming clean. Water is warm but not hot some dishes clean but damp. Is there any test to ensure it is the heating element?
For model number 665.13269k113
Hello Joanne and thanks for writing. You can test the heating element with an ohm meter it should have continuity. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime.

The dishwasher was not cleaning or drying dishes, so we purchased the heating coil and thermostat and replaced. The dishes are now getting clean, but it is not drying them completely, there is water on especially the silverware(the tray is in the door).I'd appreciate any help you can give as we already spent $102 hoping these items would fix it as its out of warranty. not sure how much money we should spend on it, its only been used for 2 years.
For model number wdf770safz serial #F62804266
Hello Roberta. Thanks for your question. I do know that rinse aid is very important to your appliance being able to dry your dishes properly. If you are using rinse aid then the problem might lie in your control board. The electronic control board is PartSelect Number: PS11737960- this is rarely the issue, but it could be worth cutting off power to the dishwasher for one minute and then restarting it to see if that fixes the issue before replacing the board. I hope this helps.

Kdte704dss0 unit runs for 20 min than stops and the door screen flashes on and off
Hello James, thank you for writing. This may be due to either a faulty Door Balance Link Kit, part number PS972325, or Door Latch, part number PS11756967 for your model dishwasher. Good luck with your repair!

My dishwasher went off (there is still a little water left in the bottom that has not drained) and it will not turn back on. The panel is off completely. It did this once before, several months ago, but a few days later, the dishwasher just magically went back on and worked fine until this second time. What do you think the problem is?
For model number KUDE40FXSS5
Hi Emily. I looked up your dishwasher (Model #:KUDE40FXSS5), and when it does not run, it is most commonly the result of a door latch failure. However, there are other parts that can cause this symptom, so I would recommend taking a look at our repair help page to determine what may be causing your dishwasher to not run. Thank you for your question, and I hope this helps.
