So my Whirlpool dishwasher stopped heating the water and doing the heat dry cycle. I checked and sure enough the heating element was bad. Replaced that and still no heat. We ran part of a cycle with a multimeter attached to the leads and it never received any current. I'm wondering if when the heating element blew it blew something else as well. Is that possible or likely? The dishwasher runs fine other than the heat portion. It was a fairly inexpensive dishwasher, $400 or so. Wondering if its worth trying to fix or get a new one. I am really strapped for money and having to replace a dishwasher would hurt right now financially (planning a wedding).
I should also say I am not the most handy and repair inclined person. I had help with the element replacement. So anything complicated I would most likely have to call a repairman to help with. So i'm trying to factor the cost of that into the equation when considering fix or replace.
Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated!
