Default Whirlpool Heating Element Not Working
Model Number: DU810SWPU3   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: 1 - 5 years

My dishwasher heating element is not heating at all. I have tested the continuity of the heating element on my analog multimeter and get a reading of 0 ohm. Does this mean I should replace the heating element? Thanks in advance.

Here are your parts
Parts for Whirlpool DU810SWPU3 Dishwasher - AppliancePartsPros.com

See the attachment for the tech sheet.

Sounds like you may have a problem reading the meter.
If the reading is 0 ohms you may be on to high of a meter scale.
The heater should be 30 ohms or so.
Zero ohms is a dead short so the heater would blow your circuit breaker.

From the tech shet you will see that there is a thermal fuse (item 26 in the Tub Parts section) in line with the heater.
It should be o ohms.

Our dishwasher apears to have hot water for washing, but no dry heat.


Does the heating element heat the wash/rince water, or does it only come into play during the drying cycle?

I guess the first things I'll check is the fuse and the resistance of the heating element?

This is a Whirlpool DP6000XRPO (in a portable cabinet)

Depends on the cycle type, see page 4 in the manual.

That would be a good place to start.
