I have a Whirlpool Gold WDT780SAEM1 (about 4-5 years old) dishwasher that is having issues cleaning and drying. I ran the diagnostic cycle and it produced error F7-E1 (heating element). I ran a continuity test on the heating element and it was closed, and on the high limit thermostat and it was closed until I put it near heat and it opened as expected. After the last cycle on the diagnostic mode, I poured some hot water on the heating element and it steamed up quickly showing that it was on at least during the diagnostic cycle. What else could I check?
