Question about Washing Machines

Washing machine doesnt heat the water

Washing machine works fine in all respects except it doesnt heat the water. Element is ok. Other parts are controller module, temperature sensor, temperature control knob.
Does anyone know what kind of components are used and how I can test further as I dont want to replace the main module if it aint broken!
I have tried the temp control in different positions but it makes no difference. People have said if it doesnt heat up the cycle will stop, but it doesnt, so perhaps the controller believes the water is already up to temperature?

    Thanks Rick. I used to have a dual fill w/mc, was a bit cross to discover this is cold fill only. However w/mcs in uk at least seem to be all going this way, p'raps its to do with establishing an energy star rating.
    Its a Hoover Nextra 7 HNF 7147 about 16 months old (just out of warranty!)

Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

How hard is to replace a heater element on a BEKO wm5140s washing machine! cheers Brian

Fairly easy.disconnect mains drain any surplus water via drain bottom front of machine.access to the heating element is from below so tip machine from one side against wall at45degrees.... I normally use a towel on bottom edge to stop it sliding whilst I unscrew any bottom will see the heating element housed at the base of drum unit.disconnect wires and unbolt or unscrew element housing .youtube has tutorials on this but many machines are similar in thus respect.good luck

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius WD420 washer/dryer that is not heating the washing water, yet does heat when in drying mode. Does the machine use the same heating element for washing and drying, or are there...

There is a seperate element for the water heater. so likely to be a faulty heater or thermistor which is fastened toi the element
You really need a test meter to determine which part is faulty.

Indecit W123 washing machine water doesnt heat. The water doesnt heat up in my machine.

More than likely that the heater element has failed,
This is usually located at the rear of the washer, remove rear panel, and test with a meter, this is the only sure way of testing it to see if it is o/k.

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

right you have 2 parts for heating the water you have the heater element you can test this simply by undoing the wires making sure to wright down order they go in get an old wire with a plug on the end attach each colour in the order you took the proper wires of plug it in if the element is working then you will feel the heat and see it glow if it doesnt then its a faulty element if it does then it will be your thermostats both element and thermostats are located at the front behind the front panel this needs taking off

Won't heat water anymore - only washes in cold water

u need to take the back half panel off once off u will see the two thermostats and the heater element you can test the element by undoing the wires and getting an old wire with plug on 1 end and bear wires on the other place corrisponding wires to were that wire had come of turn plug on and if it is working it will heat up straight away which means the thermostats need replacing if it doesnt then the element needs replacing
