Could possibly be a broken drive belt to the motor or motor brushes may need replacing.

SOURCE: My Hotpoint WMA58 washing machine is not heating

We had this problem & called our repair man in. We had accidentally knocked the 'Variable Temperature' dial down too low. It should ALWAYS be set to max (95). The programmer will still sort out the correct temperatures for the different programmes, such as cold wash, but setting that to whatever temperature means that that is the max it will ever reach, Since then, we have not had that problem again.

Water may stay hot for 5 minutes then gets cold. water heater often blows breaker or pop out switch.


I suggest taking 30 minutes and testing water heater parts.
Right away we know 2 things:
-Electricity to heater is good.
-Upper element is receiving power because you have some hot water. If upper element was burned out, you would have no hot water.

That leaves 5 suspects:
Upper thermostat.
Lower thermostat.
Loose or shorted wire.
Upper element shorted to ground near center of element.
Lower element shorted or damaged in some manner.

Buy $10 milti-meter from Home Center or hardware
When test calls for testing voltage, rotate multimeter dial to 240-250-277 VAC.
When test calls for testing elements or continuity, rotate multimeter dial to Ohms.
Take 30 minutes and go down page.
Test will identify problem(s) and show how to fix it yourself.

Water is cold


It's probably the heater element that has gone, but it could be a simpler fault like the pressure switch not activating. See this video it should give you the general idea

Water too hot and goes cold within minutes (electric)


The heating element must be shot. There is an adj there, but it is a tiny dial, and I'm not sure about the 30 gal, but most heaters have 2 elements. If yours starts out too hot then runs out, Blame the element, or check the breaker with a meter to make sure you have voltage to both legs of the 220 volt line. Sometimes one will quit there, and leave you half power. Check it out.

Is the feed pipe a hot or cold feed?


Connect the dishwasher to the HOT water side. Although most dishwashers have a heating element to heat the water, they are normally installed this way to reduce the amount of time the heating element is on. This not only extends the life of the heating element, but also reduces the amount of electricity required to heat the water. Another helpful hint: Before you run the dishwasher, run the hot water tap until the water runs hot. This will fill the dishwasher with water that is already hot instead of the cold water that normally sits in the line after the hot water has not been run for a while. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My Hotpoint WMA58 washing machine is not heating the water so the cloths are only getting washed in cold water. Will this be the heater element that has gone? If so how do you change it.

The programmer will still sort out the correct temperatures for the different programmes, such as cold wash, but setting that to whatever temperature means that that is the max it will ever reach, Since then, we have not had that problem again.

I have a Bosch SHV55M03GB dishwasher which does not heat the water. The programme cycle also sticks at the last minute. Any ideas, heater element or control panel? Thanks.


If cycle proceed normally after waiting for a while, then the control is probably OK. It stands by a while because it does not read correct temperature before proceeding.

If the appliance is connected to both hot and cold water, open more the hot water faucet.

If the water is not heating at all, check heating element for continuity, using a tester.

If water is heating regularly, but cycle is still slow, check thermic sensor.

Here are more suggestions from Repairclinic:

The cycles times are too long If your dishwasher's cycle times are too long, check these:

Water pre-heating
Cycle not completing
Water pre-heating Your dishwasher may pre-heat the water. If so, and if the water entering the dishwasher is cool, the heater may take up to half an hour to heat the water.

To avoid the wait, increase the incoming water temperature before turning on the dishwasher. Do that by running the kitchen sink faucet until the water runs hot. Or increase the temperature of the hot water to the entire house at the hot water heater.

Warning! To lessen the risk of scalding, don't set the hot water heater temperature higher than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
