My dishwasher has stopped drying. The heating element is not getting hot in the Dry cycle. I haven't checked the heating element yet because of a recent knee replacement that prevents me from pulling the unit out. I have heard that there is a reset procedure for the control board, and wanted to try that before calling for service. Thanks!

Running the service test cycle resets everything but if the element is not heating it wont reset the element. The tech sheet is behind the lower panel and has the steps to enter the test cycle. Check the element and high-limit t-stat for continuity When the machine is in a dry cycle check for 120 VAC at the element No voltage replace the control board.

Hi,

Here's your tech data sheet: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RyEKdEdize4HdZqOnzSWqpPCH1-3RngA

Press these option keys in sequence to enter the reset:

HIGH TEMP(Power Scour) ---> AIR DRY(No Heat Dry)(Energy Saver Dry) ---> HIGH TEMP(Power Scour) ---> AIR DRY(No Heat Dry)(Energy Saver Dry)

Let it run all the way through till it stops and all the lights go out on their own, it may take up to 30 minutes.

Let us know the results.

Rick is correct, if the heating element is bad the reset won't fix it, it will need to be ohm tested for continuity, make sure the breaker is OFF to the dishwasher before accessing and ohm testing it.:)

Here's the heating element for your model you can order if yours is bad(Video Included):
Heating Element W10518394


Watch this video to ohm test the heating element:

Watch this video to replace the heating element or to access the element terminals which are all the way in the back.

If your not able to do it with your recent knee replacement, maybe a friend or family member can do it for you.

Hi Jake! I did the reset procedure but it did not solve the problem. We decided to buy a new dishwasher. We found a Frigidaire that we like. What's your opinion on them? Thanks@

Ok Joe, Maytag Dishwashers are much more reliable than Frigidaire.

I'd cancel the Frigidaire and get a Maytag Dishwasher. You will get a special discount too because May is Maytag Month: https://www.maytag.com/
