Dishwasher Heating element not working

\015 Heating element is not getting hot. Element is reading 16 ohms, limiting thermostat is reading 0 ohms and all wiring back to the control panel is good.\015\012Does the voltage to the heating element need to be 120VAC and how do I check it. Is there anything else in this circuit that it can be besides the control panel? I ask because the cost of the control panel is 1/3 the cost of the entire dishwasher when purchased.\015\012When I run the heating cycle the element is cold to the touch.\015

Answers :

My wife shut the water off to the dishwasher and forgot to turn it back on and then used the dishwasher.
\015\012the heating element went on but there was nop water.
\015\012when we turned the water back on,the drying cycle does not work.i would think that the element needs to be changed or is there a relay on the computer board?
\015\012this is a two year old Jennair unit.
\015\012any suggestions?

It appears that water is not running through the dishwasher or that the sprayers are not working correctly. There doesn't appear to be a clog. However, I did find a round rubber "washer" (I think that is what they are called) laying in the bottom of the dishwasher - where does this part go. It was working fine until this wash. The heating element works fine but like I said it appears that something may be wrong with the spray tower. Please advise Model number of Hotpoint: HDA3420Z01BB T

I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?

Yes I have a whirlpool DU1345XTVB1 dishwasher. Just got in July. After each wash cycle the dishes are not dry. I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working?
