The machine only heats when it takes the detergent, all three rinses are cold only and this time of year the load will be very cold when it comes out. If the machine is not taking extra time (like a hour or two) longer to run a cycle, then there is no problem. If you want to check the heater is functioning, try this 1 Put the dial to off 2 press and hole the start button whilst turning the dial one click to left (easycare 30) 3 release start and either two of the progression lights are lit or if it has a diplay should show 8.88 or 0.00 4 turn dial to 90 cotton, take the the long way round ie not thro the off or you will have to start again 5 press start 6 drum will fill and the heater will come on, wait a few minutes and if the heater is working ok you will hear a noise like a kettle boiling. The drum does not turn during the test to allow you to hear this without the movement of the drum obscuring the sound. If it sounds ok, cool. put dial to off, wait a second then select drain to get rid of the water in the drum All the best
Are you sure it's not heating the water? The only time it heats is when it takes the detergent, all rinses are in cold water only. To test the heater, put the dial to the OFF position, press and hold the start button whilst turning the dial one click to left (30 easycare) when the two middle lights come on or 888 in display (if there's a display), take your finger off the start, turn the dial to 90 cotton (the long way, counterclockwise, not thro the OFF) press start, the tub will fill and it will do a stationary heat, you should hear the element/water making a noise like a kettle boiling. Leave the machine like this for a few minutes. Put dial to off until the door lock disengages and touch the water to see if it's warm. Put the machine on drain to clear water. If there is defo no heat repost and I will give you step by step of changing element. Cheers Roni
your auto air vent is in the top right corner inside the burner compartment.
you may need a new one or auto air vent.
clicking like this is usually on the divertor head or divertor valve.
very strange pump clicking. firstname.lastname@example.org
