Product Description

This heating element mounting nut is used in dishwashers and is used to hold the nut to prevent leaking. If your nut is damaged or you notice leaking from the dishwasher, then replacing this nut will solve this problem. The tools needed for this repair are a 1/2 inch wrench, 1/4 inch nut driver, and needle nose pliers. To repair, locate the two element heating nuts. Next, disconnect connecter wire and remove nut with wrench. Tip: when installing new nut, remember to add insulator sleeve back on. As a safety precaution, remember to disconnect the water supply line before beginning this installation. Also, unplug your dishwasher from the power source.

    Heating element connection leaking
    There was a serious leak coming from under the dishwasher. I backed out the mounting screws and pulled it out onto the kitchen floor. Emptied out the water and turned it on its side. The brass nut holding one end of the heating element was cracked and loose. I ordered the replacement part, installed it and the leak was fix. Really simple
