There is only 1 heater element, and normally one thermostat.
they are located at the rear of the m/c, behind a removable panel.
If you are not sure whether it is the element or stat, join the two
wires togeher that go to the stat, if the heater then works, replace stat. if no heat, replace heater.
plz leave feed back for this solution.

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.

Try running it with the element disconnected, if it does not trip, then element is causing prob.
If it still trips, then look elsewere for prob,.
Please rate my solution.
