We just purchased a used Kenmore 18" Portable Dishwasher (Model
587.17252200). At the normal wash setting and water heat option
selected, the heating element turns on only at the water miser cycle.
It will not turn on at the initial normal wash cycle.
Is this the way the water heat suppose to work. If not, any
suggestions as to the problem and repair? Thanks.

I found a diagram for your d/w ( surprized me! ) and found.....
The heating element will heat up the water ( if needed ) during the
4th fill of the pots and pans cycle, during the 3rd fill of the heavy
cycle, 2nd fill of the normal cycle and the first fill of the water
miser cycle. Comes on again in the middle of the main wash area....and
comes on again during the dry cycle ( if selected ).
Looks that way.
Is there a heating problem?
