First unplug your washer. Check the ground on the washer and make sure it isn't loose; this would be a good time to inspect the wiring harness for any problems. Next check the outlet (turn off the electric to that breaker first) make sure all the wires are tight and are making good contact; pay special attention to the neutral (white) wire. If that seems fine, and you are comfortable with going into you breaker panel, turn off that breaker and check the hot (the wire on the breaker) to make sure it isn't loose and then check the neutral wire. If either of these wires seem loose tighten them down....a loose wire will move when a load is put on it and cause the breaker to trip. If all seems normal and washer is still tripping the breaker you might want to replace the breaker.....they can go bad. Good luck!

take off the back and reset the overheat protection, it should be a little red button , maybe the unit was not reset when installed

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

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
Most likely it is the element. You can prove that the element is bad by disconnecting one wire and reading the terminal to the outside of the element. If you read a short (ZERO Ohms) the element is bad. It is possible for only one terminal to read to the outside case of the element.
You can find replacement elements in the UK on line here:
Your replacement oven element (if it is the bad element) will be listed on the label inside the oven door and will look like this: 5320R488 IRCA 240V 2000W RL6 02476
Since you did not metion if it was a cook top or oven element I listed both.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
