Hi all!

I pulled out my dishwasher yesterday and removed some gunk from the chopper fan underneath because the machine was running very loud when working. That fixed the noise, but now the heating element seems to not be turning off once the cycle is complete. When I opened the machine a few hours after I ran it, water splashing on the heating coil sizzled, which I do not remember ever happening before. Could this be a problem with the high-limit thermostat? I didnít fiddle with any electrical connections (except unhooking the main one), but maybe it came loose? I turned off the breaker just in case as Iím guessing it was still heating for some reason?

If that may be there case, I'm considering buying. a new part before pulling the unit out again. But I'm wondering if it might be something else, too.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!
