Good morning. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your dishwasher today. First, this is not a heater problem. The heater has a switch which stops it from heating if the water isn't pumping. The dishwasher fills but it's not pumping which is actually what is affecting the water from not heating. Either way, the issue has to deal with your circulation pump itself. You would need to uninstall your dishwasher and remove the circulation pump to see if anything is jammed inside the pump impeller stopping it from moving. If you didn't find anything, then the circulation pump would just need to be replaced. Below is a video on how to take the circulation pump out so you can check for a blockage or replace the pump if needed.
