Remove the back, the element is at the bottom of the drum tis maybe a split cabinet, where the lid comes off the it splits down the middle like cracking an egg, loads of screws, hard to describe, also 2 at bottom at the side in the middle, behind 2 plastic lugs, when removed the back half of the cabinet comes away, not an easy job until you have seen it done if you really are stuck try and send me an e mail address and i will send you a drawing, then you will see its easy, i am an engineer of 20 years and done loads, its easy job to do once you know how to split the cabinet

How do i replace heating element in a zanussi washing machine

It depends on the model of washer.
If it has no removeable rear panel, then you have to remove the complete rear half of the cabinet to access the heater, not an easy job.
If it is an early model, then it will have a removeable rear cover, and the heater can be changed from the rear of the washer.

My dishwasher does not do a hot wash. Why is this? If I need to replace the heating element, how do i gain access to heating element on my Bosch classixx dishwasher?

Hi, a common problem with these machines is the solder coming away from the heater relay. A simple repair if your lucky. Run a continuity test on the element with a multimeter before replacing it, as it is a massive job to change it. I just changed mine yesterday, the machine had to be totally stripped down. Although its not an impossible task, it does take some time. A kindly man on this site sent me a manual for Bosch dishwashers, which helped me enormously on stripping the machine down. I don't know if it is any good for your machine, but if you give me your email I will send it on to you. Mike :)

Zanussi jetsystem turbodry 1600 wjs1665 w is not heating the water

More than likely the heater element has failed.
This is located at the rear of the washer drum.
It means removing the rear half of the cabinet to access it.

Zanussi FJD1666W heater removal.

There is no easy way to access the heater without stripping it down.
Remove top cover.
Remove 2 scews at rear bottom of cabinet.
Remove 2 plastic covers at front bottom sides of cabinet, and remove 2 screws located in holes, you will need a nut socket to remove them.
Remove inlet hoses, and undo screw at top where the hoses connect to, prize up the plastic retainer that holds the valves in place.
Remove screws at top of cabinet that hold the 2 halves together.
Then lift rear half of cabinet clear of the front.
At the bottom rear you will see the heater element located.
Undo center nut and remove element..
Fit back all parts in reverse order.
Not an easy job. Good luck.
Plz rate my solution.

It could be a malfunction heating element, thermostat or both. In most of the cases it's the heating element. Check with a multi-meter for 115/220V on the heater element tags. In case you get this voltage there, you should replace the heating element. In case you can't read the 115/220V on the heater tags: - Check thermostat's for continuity (you should read a low resistance). In case you can't get any measurement. You should replace the thermostat. Good luck!
