HOW TO REPLACE HEATING ELEMENT - Whirlpool 24 in. GU980SCG Built-in Dishwasher


Answers :

Turn off the electric panel breaker that powers the unit! Check to make certain it is off before proceeding.
\015\012
\015\012You will need to disconnect the Dishwasher (DW) from the electric, water and drain lines and remove it from under the counter in order to be able to access the underside of the DW. There you will find two (2) wires connected to the heating element along with a couple of fasteners that hold it in place. Also check inside the DW for any hold down clamps, etc. on the heating element there.
\015\012
\015\012Once you have removed the connectors and mounting screws, you can then remove the element from the inside of the DW. You will need to "pop" out the grommets that the element passes through from the inside to the underside of the DW, as these keep water from leaking past the elements. Just remove and save those grommets and reinstall them onto the new element and slip it back inside the DW and through the holes in the floor of the unit. Reconnect the wires and re-fasten the screws or clamps that hold the element in place and reinstall the DW back under the counter, reconnecting the water and drain lines and the electric power.
\015\012
\015\012This is a fairly simple and money saving repair for the DIY'er and well worth the time it will take you to perform the replacement. Good luck and hope this helps. Here's a link to the versions of your DW that will show you what it looks like for the parts and placement for your specific unit as I couldn't locate an exact match without the rest of the model number series. Just select yours and look at the diagrams to find the heating element on the inside of the wash tub.
