Does anyone know what the heating elements in dishwashers and in stoves are made of? I just took a dishwasher apart two days ago and I can't decide what it is made of. Also, does anyone know anything about thermo couple wiring? I asked my friend what this would be used in since he is a journeyman electrician and he said stoves and ovens were the only thing he could think of.... obviously he has never seen the stuff. Is this type in ovens?
