    Any answers?

    have same problem element measures 35 ohms checked voltage to earth 220v at element but no voltage between terminals got 220v at the controller any idea of what is between that could be stopping it found a thermostat in the base of the main tub that is working fine anything else that could be stopping current flow

    Ok guys, I have the same problem. I am an electronics engineer by trade so I'd consider myself more than competent to fix this. I checked the PD across the element when it was *supposed* to be heating and registered 0v. The first thing that could be stopping anything getting to the element is the safety thermostat (connected by purple wire underneath). This was closed circuit (i.e. not broken), so would obviously pass through any current supplied to it. The other end of the element is connected to a relay on the timer board behind the front panel. This was not closing at any point, therefore something to do with this is the fault. The relay works fine when I apply 12v across its coils, so whatever triggers it is not working. I have not had time to investigate further, but suspect either a transistor on the board has gone or its the thermistor which sits on the inside of the door panel (connected by black wires to a little white plastic bit which is thermally pasted to the inside of the door panel). Two options: either replace the timer board (at about 35 - 60 quid) or find the fault with this one. I will investigate further and report back. If anyone knows where to find the service manual online it would help immensely!
    PLEASE be careful! The Timer board has 240v connections on it!!

First, open the door and look into the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location where they go through.
To access the heating element's wiring, remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.
Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal; they are connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced

Test the resistance of the heating element using a multimeter. Set the multitester to the ohms setting X1 and touch one probe to each of the terminals. A normal reading will be somewhere between infinity and zero. The exact reading differs by manufacturer and model. If the indicator does not move (infinite resistance) or moves to the other extreme of the scale (zero resistance) then the element is damaged and should be changed

Hope this may help you

Bosch dishwasher SHX46A -cycle runs too long (4 hours)- items still wet. The economy cycle also runs too long - should be about 80 minutes and it ran for 200 minutes.


It sounds like there's a problem with the dishwasher's heating element. The dishwasher uses the heating element to heat the water to certain temperatures, and it will wait (run for extra time) for the water to reach this temperature, and may eventually give up. When it's time to dry, the dishwasher uses the heating element to steam dry the dishes. If you're not technically savvy, you will probably need to have a pro work on the machine, but first check to make sure there's not hard water scale buildup on the heating element. If you're brave enough to work on the machine, you should check to see if the element's plugged in, check its resistance to make sure it conducts electricity, check the element's switching components, and finally the dw's computer board. There's a chance that the machine is just stuck in a loop or something. You should try turning off the circuit for a few minutes. There's a chance it may reset and start working.

F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine WT761? The original fault on the machine was that it was tripping out and taking out a resetable fuse in my fuse box a few seconds after turning the machine...


If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

On the normal cycle of my Duet front load washer at 37 minutes the machine stops and flashes F5. I push the reset button then the start button and the machine works fine after that.


HI. This is a Water temperature sensor error.

If during the water heating step in the wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the F05 error code will be displayed.

Potential Causes

• Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay
• Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay

Replace failed component.(Most common issue will be a failed water temp sensor)

Machine runs for about 5 minutes on normal cycle than stops and flashes f 05. It works on other cycles


F-05 is the error problem for :Water Temperature Sensor Error
If during the water heating step in wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the "F/05" error code will be displayed in between the running machine.
-------------------------
Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay and Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay
--------------------
in this case mostly the sensor needs replacement some times its only the case of sensor getting loose.

you can get new sensor from

I have no heat from my hotpoint aquariur ctd20 tumble dryer


The element and stats are located behind removable panel at rear of m/c.
To test , you will need a multi meter set on the ohms range for continuity check., and you need to pull the wires of the components to get a proper reading.
THE M/C MUST BE UNPLUGGED prior to this check.
Check and clean all filters, remove the front bottom left filter, and clean by running under cold water.
Hope this helps.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

I think that what you're seeing is a faulty water heating element. The element is kept switched off until the pressure switch (the thing on the end of the clear tube) detects that there's enough water in the machine for it to be safe to start heating without burning the element out. If the element is faulty, it will take out your earth leakage trip as soon as the pressure switch applies power(the usual failure mode is pinhole leaks in the element sheath, allowing water in to compromise the powdered mineral insulation inside). Confirm by running few cold wash cycles. If the machine works fine with these, but fails when you have a warm cycle selected, then element it is. The element lives in the bottom of the drum. You should be able to get a new one on the net for under £23. A.
