dishwasher trips breaker

Our house breaker tripped near mid cycle. Turned it back on long enough to pump the water out, but now the breaker keeps tripping.

KitchenAid Model Number kudr01tjbl0
How would I check the heating element to see if it's bad?
Thanks

You can check with a meter, you may see a crack or hot spot on element. You can check @ heater or @ board.
