I am a DIY, but pretty handy, and have a fluke multimeter. Here is the problem.
Dishwasher all of the sudden wont go through a complete cycle, it starts, runs and then keeps on running
from what i can tell, the drain system works fine, and my best guess at this point, is that the heater system is not working correctly, it ran for an hour or more and i opened the door and checked the temperature of the water in the basic and it was about 90 degress, thinking it should be around 150 from what i have read,
I have found similar technician repair manuals online but i cant find one for this specific model, one would be a great help.
I ready that you can test the heater, some high limit device and whatever, and that maybe the heater should read about 11 ohms, and you can check the amperage that the dishwasher is pulling at the start of a cycle to see if the heater is pulling the right amount of amps, i took the thing apart, as far as the front cover, and even loosened the base to where it would pull away from the dishwasher a few inches and can see the heater, and access a set of wires that plug in on the side of it, but i dont know how specifically to check the heater ohms, i did have the fuse off, and tried all of the combinations i could think of with the multimeter leads but didnt get anything except when i thing i was touching possibly two different ground wires, and readings were between like 2 and 4 ohm.
I need to know very specifically how to check each part of the heater circut, like what wire or whatever to put the probes on,
Also, i kinda figured out how to run the test program and it does the same thing, just runs forever, but supposedly there is a way to tell it to skip "one" of its tests, which i would like it to skip the heater test to see if all else goes well, even though that wont narrow down specifically what part is bad, it would be helpful.
Can someone somehow let me know which excact parts to test, and where to put the leads specifically to do the test, also a service manual for this exact model would be great.
