Smelled a burnt plastic smell and now my dishes aren't drying. Cleaned out vent and heating element still good. What could be the problem.

So you ohmed out the heating element?

 

Any blinking lights on the display?

 

Remove the user interface (display) console and visually inspect the main control board for burns. Look Closely at the relays and where the wiring harness connects next to them. The smell could be coming from a melted down control. 

 

If you find the main control is the culprit, Here is the link to order it.

I guess i'm little confused about the testing procedure you did on the heating element. In your original post it states "Heating Element still good". 

 

Can you please clarify what you have done to test machine?

My husband is out of town and my brother tested it and said it was still good. But I'm rethinking that it must be bad. I checked the temp of the water during the wash cycle and it was lukewarm. During the heat dry cycle I touched the heat element and it was cold. So I'm thinking the heat element needs to be replaced. I checked the control panel and it looked good.

You must check the heater for continuity using a multimeter.

The Clean light blinking 7 times should indicate a heating issue. Using the strip diagram on the tech sheet, measure resistance from the control through the heating circuit , this would include the heater and thermostat. If resistance is good, would then suspect control heater relay, which could be verified taking an amp reading during the diagnostic cycle, also found on the tech sheet...
