The nut should taken off completely, and then lever the heater out with a broad blade screwdriver or similar, u need to get behind the metal plate that holds the heater in, or get a good pair of grips and grip the metal plate of the heater, and pull it towards u,it can take some doing as the rubber seal will have expanded, and that is what is holding it in
Plz rate my solution and feel free to leave a comment.
Thanks.

    The new element will come with seal, certainly remove center nut altogether, as this is the one that usually compresses the seal.

    Only remove the other one if it seems to be holding the heater to the washer..

    Many thanks for your rating.

    It depends on the way the washer timer is programmed, some will wash in cold water, others will sit and wait for the water to heat up, if this is the case, then just advance the timer onto the next stage of the wash, or if it has a seperate heater control, set it to min, and it should wash ,but only in cold water.;;

    If it is hot and cold fill ,select a hot fill prog and it will utilise your hot water.

Hoover washing machine Mod OPH 714D Error E16 in most programmes what dose it mean!


After far more research than I usually have to do, It seems that E16 means "O/C Heater"

Which means that the heating element is open curcuit. Which menas......

Either the heater element has a wire off at the back, or more likely the heater element is burned out.

They are easy to replace. Pull the machine out and remove the rear inspection plate at the bottom of the body (I think this machine has one!, sorry if it doesn't).

At the bottom of the drum, you will see a atainless steel cover, about 4 inches limg and a third of an inch wide, with rounded ends. There will be 2 spade connectors with wires in them (1 either end of the plate) and a 10mm nut in the centre. The nut tightens up a squeeze plate inside that crushes up a rubber seal to hold it in place. Undo the nut fully (you may have to push the little stud bolt that is now exposed in a little to free it off) The element should now withdraw if you grab hold of the spade connectors and tug a little to break the seal before you withdraw it.

Replacement should be the reverse of removal.

How to Replace the Dishwasher Heating Element


If you have determined that the heating element has gone bad in your dishwasher then you may be wondering if you can easily replace it. Actually for many dishwashers the replacement is not that hard. The most important part is that you turn off all power before attempting to do any work!

The heating element is located in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. It will be submersed in the water when the dishwasher is running. To find it, look for a thin circular tube in the bottom of the dishwasher tub. Some dishwasher will have a cover over it. To get to the heating element the racks will need to be removed from the dishwasher and the cover, if there is one will have to be removed.

To replace the element you will have to remove the front kick plate of the dishwasher. A few screws will hold it in place and they are easily removed. Once you are underneath the tub you can locate the terminal ends of the heating element. Make the wires do you know which one goes where to put them back properly. Then pull the wires from the ends of the heating element. Make sure that you are pulling on the terminal connector and not just the wire to remove them.

Once you have the wires removed from the ends of the element, then look for the lock nuts up against the bottom of the tub that holds the element in place.
With a small adjustable wrench or a pliers you can loosen the locknuts. When the nuts are off of the ends of the dishwasher heating element you can then reach into the tub of the dishwasher and gently work the element loose and pull it up and out.

Place the new element into the holes and then securely fasten the new heating element in place with the lock nuts. Use a wrench or pliers to snuggly tighten the nuts. Replace the wires and the kick plate. Replace the element cover if there is one, the racks, and you are ready to roll. Turn the power back on and try it out!

How do I remove the oven element on our Belling Synergie XOU252? I have located it no problem but cant work out how to remove? Is it held in place with 2 very very small bolts?


It all depends on whether the scew heads are flat, or have slots for a screwdriver.
If no slots , then you are going to have to access the heater from the rear of the outer rear cover of the oven.
If the screws can be undone from inside, then simply unscrew them, and pull the element out towards you.
Hope this helps.

Instructions to replace faulty heat element on a whirlpol electric dryer


If the model number is correct, the heating element is replaced by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltage still exists inside the unit even when it is shut off.

2. Turn dryer around so you can access the rear panel. Disconnect the dryer exhaust vent hose.

3. Loosen and remove all the screws around the perimeter of the rear panel. Remove panel and set aside.

4. The heating circuits will be located on the right hand side (as viewed from the rear) with the heating element located inside the heater box.

5. Remove the mounting screws that hold the heater box in place and disconnect the electrical connections (make sure you annotate where the wires go).

6. The entire heater box comes off with the element inside. Loosen the screws on the outside of the heater box that hold the element in place. With the screws removed, the element will slide out the bottom of the heater box.

Now...if the dryer is running but not heating, have you confirmed the heating element is bad? There are several factors that can cause these symptoms. Please review the following link before you assume the element is the cause:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3576548-dryer_runs_but_does_not_heat

If you haven't done so already, it may be a good idea to double check the source voltage, followed by a check of the Hi-Limit Thermostat and Thermal Cut-Out (TCO). All these components can factor into the same symptoms you may be experiencing.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

Zanussi FJD1666W heater removal.


There is no easy way to access the heater without stripping it down.
Remove top cover.
Remove 2 scews at rear bottom of cabinet.
Remove 2 plastic covers at front bottom sides of cabinet, and remove 2 screws located in holes, you will need a nut socket to remove them.
Remove inlet hoses, and undo screw at top where the hoses connect to, prize up the plastic retainer that holds the valves in place.
Remove screws at top of cabinet that hold the 2 halves together.
Then lift rear half of cabinet clear of the front.
At the bottom rear you will see the heater element located.
Undo center nut and remove element..
Fit back all parts in reverse order.
Not an easy job. Good luck.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Indesit wil 103 heater element


no need to take drum out. heater is held by one 10mm nut in the middle of the heater. when tightened, this nut compresses the rubber seal and holds heater in place. loosen the nut. the heater will probably be too tight to remove by hand so carefully use a screwdriver to lever it out

Hotpoint FDW60 heater replacement


The heater is the black element at the bottom of the tub. you can see it when you open the door, there are 2 wires attached to it under the dishwasher along with 2 nuts and some rubber washers to keep it from leaking, It is a simple job to replace. Remove the wires undo the the nuts that hold it to the tub, and there may be some brackets inside the dishwasher that secure it in place. remove the element and replace it. Install in the reverse order you took it apart.
