The heating element expired on our dishwasher.
I followed an internet video on how to change a dishwasher heating element. The installation involved completely removing the dishwasher from the cabinetry, needing sufficient space in which to turn the dishwasher on its side, and disconnecting the electric wire from the appliance junction box. The actual timing of the part replacement was about 15 minutes. The difficulty I had was familiarizing myself with where the hoses and lines connect and reconnect. Our kitchen is also small, so moving the machine around was tricky. If I were to replace the part again, I could do it much faster, now that I know how to do it. Also, the element seals were a bit different on the replacement part; however, they work just fine.

Heating element failed
1)Turned power off to dishwasher 2) removed toekick cover 3) shut off water 4) disconnected water line to dishwasher 5) removed top screws holding DW in place 6) slid DW out of cavity to access the read bottom 7) removed terminal clips from bottom side of heating element under DW 8) remover special "nuts" that held the heat element in place under DW 9) removed old heat element from inside DW 10) installed rubber wagers on. New heat element 11) installed new heat element from inside DW through holes in back of DW 12) screwed "nuts" back onto the new heat element under DW .... Note .... The new element used different "nuts" than the original .... So I was glad I had ordered new "nuts" just in case and would suggest you do the same 13) attach the electrical connections back on the new heating element 14) slide the DW back under the counter and attach to counter top nosing 15) hooked the water back up and turned it on 16) turned the breaker back on

D3 error code - heating element failure
Thanks to your excellent video, I just took my time, followed the instructions and I was done. Took longer to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet then to replace the element. Thanks for everything. Did it myself and saved a lot of money!
