You'll need to pull the dishwasher out from under the countertop. You can lay it partially on its back.
Check across the two ends for continuity. If it shows open it'll need to be replaced. There is a nut on the bottom of the element that comes off.

There is also a thermal cutoff held against the bottom of the tub. It should be 0 ohms.

I could not find info on the given model number but did find the following which may be useful to you.

Using that model number and the Sears parts sit the cutoff/thermostat is Item 15 in the Tub and frame parts section.

OK, I was hoping to avoid pulling it out, I just found the tech sheet and there is a process for troubleshooting using the keypad, so I will give that a try, I am hoping to find those conductors coming from the heat element underneath somewhere so I can test from there.
won’t get to for a week or so now.
