My GE Profile Performance dishwasher (GSD 4910) doesn't drain. I hear the pump working, and water draining into the sink (not a disposal) as it should, but water is left standing in the tub about as high as the heating element. I have taken it apart and removed a few small items stuck in the system in various places, but that didn't affect anything.

I have an Indesit IDL500 dishwasher. It had stopped heating the water up, it looked as if it had short circuited and so i replaced it, i have power going to the element.

Does this pcb control the program selection and heating of the element? or is there a thermostat that controls the stop and start of the heating element? Any help would be greatly appreciated

I have a Beko DE3542FS dishwasher which has stopped heating the water. I know the heater element is ok because I have had it tested.
