How do I replace the heating element for a Bosch SHU53 dishwasher

\015 My Bosch dishwasher SHU5316UC/U12, installed 3/4/03, had the heating water element go out. I ordered another one from Bosch, but it did not come with installation instructions. The only installation instructions the company sent me were how to install the dishwasher under the counter. I took the dishwasher out, turned it over, looked for an obvious kick plate removal or something. But not wanting to break anything, do you have any hints on how to remove and install a heater in this unit?\015

My dishwasher does not do a hot wash. Why is this? If I need to replace the heating element, how do i gain access to heating element on my Bosch classixx dishwasher?

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. A couple of forums state that it may be the pcb behind the timer/selector switch. 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
