Just the heating element itself melted in two, but did not damage anything else (I think) No China Syndrome thankfully!

Well, compadre, you're gonna need to replace that heating element AND the control board-- it's sold as kit 'cuz this has been a common problem with these otherwise commendable dishwashers. Come git you one:

If you are handy , take the motor/pump assy. out and then you can get at heater wires and nuts. Or , take the d/w out so you can get you hand in through the side to get at heater connections. Only remove what you need to so you can sneak a hand in.
