if its no heat there only 2 items it can be heater element or the thermostats u could test the element by replacing the plugged in wires with wires that hasve a plug on place the wires into right places turn the plug on and if the element works it will start to glow turn it off as soon as u see it glowing from the inside of the washer also u can check the thermostats by dropping them into hot water and u should hear them pop

First unplug your washer. Check the ground on the washer and make sure it isn't loose; this would be a good time to inspect the wiring harness for any problems. Next check the outlet (turn off the electric to that breaker first) make sure all the wires are tight and are making good contact; pay special attention to the neutral (white) wire. If that seems fine, and you are comfortable with going into you breaker panel, turn off that breaker and check the hot (the wire on the breaker) to make sure it isn't loose and then check the neutral wire. If either of these wires seem loose tighten them down....a loose wire will move when a load is put on it and cause the breaker to trip. If all seems normal and washer is still tripping the breaker you might want to replace the breaker.....they can go bad. Good luck!

take off the back and reset the overheat protection, it should be a little red button , maybe the unit was not reset when installed

Someone with a wattmeter needs to read the wattage load by the machine when washing. If the running load is greater than the rated load of the machine, then the problem is likely the motor itself or the drum bearings are going bad. If the electrical load is normal, then the breaker in the house electrical panel is either under-rated, or the breaker is defective. If the breaker is a 'ground fault' type, the washer may have current leakage to ground causing the breaker to trip. Another possibility is that there is another outlet that is on the same circuit and the combined load trips the breaker. Shut the breaker off and try any other sockets in the area to see if they went dead too. Hope this helps!
