Having problem with my heating element in my dishwasher. Where it seems to not turn off, just started acting like this yesterday. Unit is 3 yrs old. So last night left the door open to cool off, but today I closed it and minutes later I noticed that it was hot. So I turned off power. Is this a thermostat problem or a control board problem? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks

ANSWER Hello JTodd. Based on the information you provided, it sounds like the electronic control W10218831 is bad and will need to be replaced on the unit. It sounds like the relay in the control board is stuck in the on position.
