Is there a good product for removing hard water/soap scale from this element? I am trying to avoid it flaking off and plugging other parts. Also, will this scale negatively affect the function of the element? Thank you. Awesome site. You've saved me time, hassle, and money. I'm loyal unto the end.
Answer Hello Steve. The build up will not effect the function of the heater. However, here is the part number for dishwasher magic TJ104. Use Dishwasher Magic Once A Month To Remove Stains, Odors. Kills Germs. Also Helps To Remove Calcium & Rust Build Up. Safe For All Plumbing And Septic Systems. Hope this helps.
I located the diode (had to buy 10 of them) on eBay for $.45 ea. What are you trying to sell for $38? Also, the solenoid ohms out correctly, so I'm not replacing it unless it blows one of my diodes!

Answer Hi John. I apologize as my breakdown does not supply me with specific Zener diode information. With the previous spec's you provided, this was the best I could do. I was just trying to help because sometimes you get what you pay for and I was hoping in all honesty that this kit would help. Keep in mind that newer dishwashers do not come with diodes. My opinion is that you might have a pinched wire at the lower part of the door where it opens and closes with the door. Access the inner door area (remove the inner door panel), and investigate the wire harness as it passes under the door and to the frame. There might be a pinched or shorted wire in that area. Thank -you.
The diode says (Reading from it) 1.5KE220CAMFG code 0144THANKS! Needless to say, G E wants to sell me a new dishwasher!!
Answer Hi John. We have a zener diode kit part # 102-003. G.E. has the same part number for your water valve part # WD15X10003. You need to replace both parts as mentioned before. I hope this helps. Thank you.
