I have a GE...

I have a GE dishwasher model GDT580SSF7SS that seems like the heating element is not working correctly because the dishes used to burn your hands when trying to unload right after cleaning had completed. Now they are just barely warm. I have checked for continuity on the heating element and it checked out fine so I am wondering what else there is to check?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your GE is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It was purchased on September 15, 2015 and delivered on September 26, 2015. I already put the model number but here it is again model GDT580SSF7SS

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Nope I believe that is all.

I would still like a response as to what else could possibly be wrong with my dishwasher and what to test next. Was thinking that there could be a thermostat that could be the culprit but haven’t been able to find if my model has one and where that would be located in order to test it.

Perfect I will try that tonight when I get home from work and let you know if that solves the problem.

I think I am fine with just the pointer you gave. I'm pretty handy and should have no problem finding out if the TCO needs to be reset.

Sorry for the auto call offer, I have no control over those.
