Is this the Matsui?
If so, this should be a submersible element that sits in the water in the bottom of the dishwasher, is that correct?

Hi Mia

If you look inside the dishwasher, you will see the element
Look at the front where it passes through the floor of the dishwasher.

Turn off the power
Remove the kick plate at the front of the machine
Look in there and you will see the terminals to the element.
Note the wiring and remove the wiring.
Undo the retaining bolt and pull the heater out.
Refit the heater, do up the bolt.
Refit wiring and kick panel
Job done
