Dishwasher is working find other than the heat dry .
Is this a heating element problem or something else?
Answer Hello Brenda. You can test the element and the thermostat. Both should read closed for continuity. If they are good, you will need to order and replace the control board on the unit. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html

The material on the outside of the heating element is breaking off, should I replace the heating element?
Answer Hello Kevin,
If the Calrod material is flaking off, it not only makes an unsafe situation, but the element 154665201 is near to burning out any way. I would definitely replace this element.
Heating element burned up. Does the new one simply plug in?
Answer Hello Carl. Disconnect the power and pull the wires off the terminals under the unit. Then unscrew the heater nuts and replace the heater on the unit.
