My heater burned out on the dishwasher due to a faulty heating element nut. I'm replacing the heater (AP5628696), the heating element nut (AP3965251) and the heater terminal shield (AP2109194) because they've all been damaged. I also need to replace the terminal end of the wire that connects to the heater underneath the tub. After reading through the other questions posted I saw that you recommended using part AP5642027 as a replacement terminal. These are non-insulated terminals but it appears that the part I am replacing is insulated (it has a white plastic cover). Will this part work or do I need to buy either a different part or an additional insulating piece to go over the terminal? The white terminal insulator was badly burned due to the leak we had and is not useable.
ANSWER Hello Erin. The only other option you have is to order and replace the complete wiring harness 154547101.
