The original heater element for this dishwasher is no longer manufactured. However, I read that the Whirlpool W100822892 heater will work with the Kitchen Aid washer if I also replace the control board. IS this true?
ANSWER Hello David. For plastic tub models use part number W10518394 and for steel tub models use part number W10082892. There is no need to replace the control board for the heater unless the board is bad.
