Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The part you find broken is the nut that fastens the heating element to the bottom of the tub and seals the opening from leaking.

To install the heater nuts:

Disconnect the power supply from the dishwasher and then disconnect the wire(s) from the heating element. I recommend replacing both sides with new heater mounting nuts. The nuts thread on and off. Turn them counter clockwise to remove and clockwise to install. They need to be tight enough to seal water and to keep the heating element stable.

You can order the heater nuts #154106202 for Kenmore model 587.16188401 dishwasher at Sears Parts Direct.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
