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?

Re: washing machine doesnt heat the water
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...

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 plate.you 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
see this causes and fix it. God bless you F05
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.
• Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay
• Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay
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.
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
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
