My Bosch SHI4306UC dishwasher will not stop running in the rinse mode. I was wondering if it will not advance because the heater is not working well enough to increase the water temp to complete the cycle. Is this most likely the heating element and something that can be fixed by a homeowner? Thank you for your help, Steve

Bosch Dishwasher I currently own a Bosch dishwasher. One of the selling points, if I'm remembering right, of the dishwasher was it was supposed to super heat the hot water that is coming in from the tap. I have 3 problems. We have to rinse the dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher, Otherwise they won't come out clean. The dishwasher will run for four hours sometimes longer. It doesn't seem like it is heating the water any hotter than what comes out of the tap.

I have a GE Profile Dishwasher, Model# PDW7880J03SS that doesnt dry the dishes. I pulled out the dishwasher and checked the heating element for continuity with my ohm meter and got a closed circuit reading.

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.
