I HAVE A KENMORE 65513593K600 WHICH I RECENTLY REPLACED THE TOUCHPAD. WHEN I STARTED IT UP AND RAN THROUGH THE CYCLE IT GOT VERY HOT (TOO HOT). I AM NOW THINKING THAT IS WHAT CAUSED THE FAILURE. WHAT WOULD CAUSE THE HEATING ELEMENT TO GO ABOVE TEMP?
KENMORE DISHWASHER GETS TOO HOT

Could be a shorted operating thermostat located under the tub on the motor sump P/N 8193776. That thermostat is responsible for regulating the water temperature around 145 degrees. There is also a high limit thermostat on the bottom right of the tub that serves as a safety P/N 661566. Make sure the heating element is not shorted to ground and check for any damaged wires. That's a good dishwasher manufactured by Whirlpool for Sears and well worth the repair.
