Tyler, I'll put a generic basic brand dishwasher for the purposes of this question, but I want to know it in general for most basic dishwashers. If you have a case where this unit has a thermostat in the bottom and you know it's good, and you ohm out the Heating Element, and it's good, the third possibility would seem to be that the Main Board is not sending current to the Heating Element. Where do you put the probes? Right at the terminals to the heating element, or coming off the board in the door? I want to do what's easiest, but you'd have to be running the unit either in place or out (if the hoses permit).

1994 Kenmore Ref/Freezer side-by-side Model(###) ###-####with NO cooling. Defrost timer checks okay, there is continuity between all three terminals of the compressor. The compressor fan runs about 10 seconds on and three minutes off - the compressor is very warm but not hot. The freezer fan runs continuously. Could the problem be the starting relay, an overheat switch or thermostat? Please advise? Charles Pope

The voltage has been checked and in normal.I suspect the circuit board but don't know which one.

What type of grease is specified for lubricating the tub

What type of grease is specified for lubricating the tub bearing and radial bearing on a Maytag LAT9804AAE?JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?Customer: Maytag Dependable Plus model # LAT 9804AAE purchased in 1995 so it is now old enough to vote and drink :)JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: Yes. I am an ASE certified Automotive Technician and am quite handy with these type of things. The machine is already apart and spread out across my basement floor. The bushing type bearing is in good shape but is dry.JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: The machine was making an intermittent squeal on spin cycle only. have ruled out motor bearings since noise is only associated with said spin cycle. Sound has a "metallic resonance to it that suggests to me it is emanating from the tub/drum area.
