I checked continuity on the heating element above on the tops of the heating element(Note tops were rusty and I felt that I was not getting a good reading) So I tested the two leads at the bottom connections w/o removing the leads and the element tested good continuity. Assuming the heating element is fine I tested the temp on the water and the element during a wash cycle and got the temp of hot tap water. On the options panel I have Hi Heat set on all(e.g. Wash, rinse & Dry). Are the red indicators on the options panel LED lights? If so they are not lit-up in any of the 3 cycles mentioned above. I see the red indicator(led) lit up on the wash cycle to the right of the panel where you have Delay, Wash and Clean LED lights. I just checked the Heating element element in the drying cycle and it is heating up. It is apparent that the heating element is not working in the Wash and probably the Rinse cycle? What is the problem? Do I need a new options control switch or what? Thanks. Tom
ANSWER Hello Tom. If the heater is working, but not during the wash cycle, you will need to replace the timer 154412901 in the unit.
