Hoover SE220 washing machine.
its more likely to be the heater element the temp sensor is fitted to this, remove the rear of the unit and at the bottom of the back of the drum there is a nut and either side there are 2 wires remove them and undo the nuts first nut holds the earth second nut remove but not all the way, un clip the connector for the thermostat, with all wires out of the way now push on the nut as to push into the washer and then pull on the 2 parts were the wires were it will be stiff to move. when it comes out wipe around the hole and clean it before fitting new element. fitting the element in side there is a metal plate the element has to fit into this, best way to fit it right is to make the element end at an angel when fitting. when its fitted it should be flush, tighten the nut until its a nice snug fit with no movement. then refit all wires and earth wire and nut. check everything is done and looks the same as it was when you started. you are now done. put back on and washer ready to use.
