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.

Can i replace the heater element to my candy washing machine myself? if so how?

Yes but can be very awkward. Remove wires from heater, loosen the nut situated in the centre of the heater, then using screwdriver pull the plate away from the rubber seal. the plate can be pulled all the way back. You should now be able to pull the complete heater away from machine. When you replace with new heater use some washing up liquid to get the rubber back into place more easy.

My candy cna 145 will not let water into drum. all just floods out of soap dispenser

It sounds as though there is a soap powder blockage in the dispenser or the dispenser hose in to the drum.
Try pushing into the hose with something to clear the blockage.

Change heater element on a Hotpoint Ultima WMA66P

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

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
