The element was going to ground but now that you have disconnected it, the blinking light is the pcb reading an open circuit on the heater and giving an error. Replace the heating element. (Make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting any such work!)

How hard is to replace a heater element on a BEKO wm5140s washing machine! cheers Brian

Fairly easy.disconnect mains drain any surplus water via drain bottom front of machine.access to the heating element is from below so tip machine from one side against wall at45degrees.... I normally use a towel on bottom edge to stop it sliding whilst I unscrew any bottom will see the heating element housed at the base of drum unit.disconnect wires and unbolt or unscrew element housing .youtube has tutorials on this but many machines are similar in thus respect.good luck

I have a whirlpool washing machine with a fault code F23. Can anyone advise me what it means?

If the temperature increase during the first 40 minutes is less than 86°F (30°C).

1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Check connection to water heater.
3. Check resistance of heating element, if present on this model. (abnormal = infinity)
4. Check the water temperature sensor and connection to it.

The main circuit breaker in the house jumps

From the symptons you describe, I would say that the heater element has failed.
Disconnect the heater, and try it again on a high temp wash, if it does not trip, then it is the element that is faulty.

F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine WT761? The original fault on the machine was that it was tripping out and taking out a resetable fuse in my fuse box a few seconds after turning the machine...

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

Washing machine fault

This is usually down to the water heater element needing replacing (when the machine has filled up enough, it turns on the heater - and that's when the fault on the element takes the power out). To check, unplug the machine from the electricity supply and take the back cover off. In the middle of all the clutter, you'll see the large stainless tank that encloses the drum. Somewhere near the bottom of this, you'll find an oval plate with three terminals (a live, a neutral and an earth). Double check that the machine is unplugged, then remove the live and the neutral (these are the two that go onto slightly insulated posts). Leave the earth (the one that goes straight onto the metalwork) on. If there's any risk that the wires you've taken off are going to touch anything, tape them back with insulating tape. Now plug the machine back in and see if it will run. If it goes further into the cycle without blowing the house electrics, you've proved you have a heater element problem. Replacements are available off the net or from any local washing machine spares shop - expect to pay a little under £20. A.
