Re: i am trying to change the element on a candy cna 166
Yes, you do have to lever it out, if you have removed the center nut completely, try and pull the metal plate as far forward as you can, this should expose the rubber seal, this is what is holding the heater in.
Lever round the edge of the seal, and try to force it out, be careful,as you can break the plastic moulding (expensive)
If this does not work, then try cutting through the seal with a stanley knife, and remove it piece by piece.
You will have no trouble getting the new one back in.

I have an older dishwasher also and recently my wife also complained about it not cleaning right… so me being the man I am tried in vain to clean the things…
Bought new spray arms online and installed them in minutes…now the thing works like new…
However I have also found that if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad…
So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to make sure it is working…
Here is a tip that will help you with the online buying...
You have to gain access to the element by removing the outer rear panel of oven, if it is built in, then this means removing it from the housing.
Once you have removed the cover, and possibly the top panel, you will see how the element is fitted.
It is a fairly straight forward repair to do.

its either the motor or element gone, remove the back of the machine and remove the wires from each component mentioned. try the element first , MAKE SURE U TAPE UP THE REMOVED WIRES BEFORE TURNING THE MACHINE BACK ON , U WILL GET A SHOCK IF U DONT!!!. if it does not trip , then the element is gone. like wise do the same to the motor. just one more item to check is where the mains cable enters the inside of the machine. good luck
