OK, inside the unit there are three items, the heating element, thermostat, and thermal fuse.What has happened is the element got too hot and the thermal fuse opened.There is no reset button.In some cases you may run across a defective heating element or thermostat but its not common.The fix would probably be replacement of the thermostat and thermal fuse.For this, you would have to contact a small appliance repair center in your area.

Check the spring under the grounds basket on the pump tube. This is supposed to hold the end of the tube down in the heater well. It should compress when the lid is pushed down on the basket and twisted to lock in under the handles. I have found a good source of parts for Faberware urns and percolators at goodmans.net. The thermostats and heating elements can be easily replaced and the urn returned to original condition. Rich of Colorado

Make sure that you have not got the energy save button in operation, as this by-passes the heater, and will wash at the incoming water temp. It should not be showing green
If this is not the case, then the heater has probably failed.
To access the heater, you need to remove the top cover, remove the soap dispenser drawer, and undo the 4 screws securing the console panel to the top of the washer.
Pull off the timer knob, noting the position of it, and slide the console panel to the right, support it with something.
Remove wire cllip holding door seal to front of panel, and pull off the seal at the front.
Undo the screws securing the front panel at the top.
Undo 3 screws at bottom of front panel.
Lift front panel clear,and stand it at the right of washer, be careful of the wires still attached to the door lock.
At the bottom, in the center, you should find a black cover, remove that, and you will see the heater element.
You eally need a meter to test it for continuity, and or an earth fault.
Replace if faulty.
Please leave a fixya rating for my suggeted solution.

Mine had the same problem ... all the lights are on, but no heating on the plate, and no dripping of water.
After a weekend on the workbench, I've mastered this machine. The KM7005 has 2 x MicroTemp G4 thermal cutoff (TCO) fuses which interrupt the Live line, for overheat protection. Mine didn't overheat per se, but the TCO blew anyway. Not reset-able ... need to be replaced with a soldering iron. I'll be happy to advise you to fix this, or fix it for you. Write me at KM7005@flightsystems.biz.

check to see that the flow switch is working properly, it may not have enough flow on low speed to allow the heater to turn on. Make sure your filter/s is/are clean. If you have a pressure switch instead of a flow switch, it may need to be adjusted or replaced.
