Frigidare Dishwasher Model # FBD2400KB3A 

 

 I have had two service calls for the same Dishwasher and Model where the lower spray arm was melted by the heater element.  Does anyone know why this is happening?

Were the 2 aluminum heat shields (one on each side on the bottom of the spray arm) still on the spray arm or were they missing?

Yes the heat shields are still on the spray arm. Its weird because the burn marks are not on the spray arm that moves over the heater element but about a inch or two closer to the center.
