Re: diplomat apm8703 heater element gone
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

take the back off the heater has 1 10m nut in the middle and 2 wires on it take off wires undo 10m nut prize off the heater it is compressed in a rubber it might take a bit of force the best thing to do before this is to test the heater with a multi meter 1st if there is no reading across the two terminals the heater has gone get a new heater and have a look at it you will see what holds it in
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.
Google "Hoover washing machine heating element" to find yourself one on line, or ho to your local Hoover parts stockist
Remove lower rear cover of washer, you will see the heater with 2 wires attached to it, and a thing that is called the thermistot, remove 2 heater wires, and loosen center securing nut, prize old heater out with a screwdriver or similar, fit new element and thermistor, reconnect and make sure it is tightened up securely.

Sounds like it's scraping against your heater element.Remove back panel then remove heater element(two prongs with nut in centre)you will be able to see signs of damage if so that will have to be replaced. £20 - £30.00p. Your either overloading your machine or your bearings are have gone, to check bearings pull inner drum while holding outer drum if get movement and knocking they will also need replacing.
I am assuming you have accessed the element, in the centre of the element is a fixing nut, remove this altogether, and lever element out with a broad blade screwdriver or similar.
Pull the thermistor out of the element, and transfer to new element.
Also transfer stainless steel fixing bracket to new element if there is one fitted. Refit new element

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.

If I were u, I wud check the hose or chamber where the water level switch hose is terminated for any blockage or obstruction there as this is often the cause of the prob, u were certainly on the right track.

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
