How to test heating element on a sb915sj*06 dishwasher water not getting hot is this the common cause or something else


Answers :

You test any element with a Multimeter set to OHMS, you should get a reading below 6 - 14 OHMS if it is MORE it is shot, if it is Less, by say half it is shot. If it is "Open Circuit" it is shot.\015\012
\015\012To know exactly what the, any, Element should be resistance wise, there is a simple formula. Watts = Amps x Volts. Say, 1000 Watt element. divided by 112 Volts = 9 amps. Now to get resistance we divide the Volts by the Amps = 112 Volts divided by 9 Amps = 12.5 OHMS easy huh? it doesn't have to be 100% accurate as there is a lot of losses etc, so a close figure is fine. + or - 10% is OK.
