How do I know if my heating element is bad in my dishwasher?

How do you test a dishwasher heating element without removing it?
Use your multitester (aka multimeter) to test the heating element for continuity. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Touch each meter probe to a terminal. You should receive a reading somewhere in between infinity and zero.
How can you tell if a heating element is bad?
Touch a probe on the multitester to each screw on the element. If you get no reading, or a maximum reading, the element is bad. Elements do have some resistance, so a reading of 10-16 ohms is normal, with higher ohm readings for 3,500 watt elements and lower readings for 5,500 watt elements.
Can I use my dishwasher with a broken heating element?
Although a broken heating element is not the worst thing that could happen to a dishwasher, it certainly is an inconvenience and means you’ll waste time hand drying your dishes when they could just be automatically dried in the dishwasher. Only then will your dishwasher run its normal cycle.
Press the “Start/Reset” pad on a front-control GE dishwasher to cancel the dishwashing cycle. The “Start/Reset” light will flash as the water pumps out, a process that takes about two minutes. When the light stops flashing, the dishwasher is reset and it can be restarted later.
