I read all the helpful previous posts (thanks everyone for sharing), and thought I had our never ending cycle issue targeted when I pulled the control board and found a slightly burned solder joint somewhat like is often mentioned and kind of in the area often cited. I quickly resoldered it, but still no luck on the endless cycle, water not getting hot, etc. etc. I can't find any front panel light diagnostics for the SHE, but all the symptoms I can observe lead me to think it is a heater fault of some sort.
My question is twofold: If I drag the machine out and dig out the heater element will I be able to easily tell if the heater element is bad? And secondly, all I can find for a replacement part is an expensive pump-looking assembly, not a heating element looking part. Where would I find one for an SHE43C02UC 43? Thanks!!!

Wanna make damn sure before you try go expose that element...a real bitch to get at.
do you have an amp clamp? If so here is my method to test this ...
remove the door panel outer..
clamp amp clamp around red wire in the harness..
start a cycle, follow the red wire up to the controller and then take a small jumper wire and jump between the red and black wire in the back of that plug.
does the amp meter show a current of 8-10 amps? If so, the heater and high limit are good and prolly just a bad controller.

No amp clamp. I had heard they were the devil to remove. I have several multimeters, though! :ermm:
