Dishwasher heating element

I have a brand new Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher model #665.13012K113 when I opened it yesterday to get out a plastic pitcher approx. 5-10 minutes after starting it the heating element was bright read for only about 2 inches on the right side. Is this normal or is there something to be worried about? Also does it hurt for water to come into contact with the heating element?
