You can check the heating element with an ohmmeter and it should read a few hundred ohms. Don't know about the thermostat but it should be inline electrically with the heating element and should ohm as a short when cold.

I have a Zanussi ZSF 6160 dishwasher which is not heating the water. I've checked the PCB and visually it appears ok. How do I change the heating element?

measure the heating element resistance it should be around 25 ohm.
otherwise it is the problem.

You can replace the relay, sometimes it stop working with no external damage signs

Either it's not getting enough water to flip over to the next part of it's cycle (unlikely) or the water float gauge is not working properly.

When the dishwasher is cool, look for the float inside the dishwasher --usually a small plastic dome or cylinder mounted inside at the tub's base, near the front. When you move most types of floats up and down, you can hear them click because they trip a lever (they are spring loaded). Lift out the float mechanism and clean around the float tube; many floats must be disconnected from below--to do this you'll have to remove the lower access panel. Rinse off the float, then replace it in the tube and be sure it moves up and down freely.

If you're experienced with minor repair work shut off the hot water valve to the appliance. Locate the water intake valve, behind the dishwasher's bottom front panel, disassemble the valve to reveal the screen, clean debris from the screen, and reassemble. If the screen doesn't appear to be blocked, call a repairperson (they will probably need to replace the water intake valve).

If none of this helps, call a repair person. Any of several parts, including water inlet valve, pressure switch, and the timer or selector switch, may be faulty.

it is possible but if you use a hot fill you will find that the rinse aid will produce a large amount of foam and the dishes wont dry properly

Dishwasher doesn't run
If you turn on the dishwasher and nothing happens:

1) Be sure the power is on, the door is latched, and the control is turned on. Also make sure the appliance cord is plugged into the electrical receptacle under the sink (some are hardwired and don't come unplugged).

2) If that doesn't solve the problem, the door switch, the timer, or the selector switch may be defective. To solve the problem, you may be able to adjust the door latch's strike slightly, using a screwdriver (turn off the power to the dishwasher at the electrical panel when working on it).

3) If that doesn't work, call an appliance repairperson.

No heat

You should check for 115/220v on heater tags, In case you don't have it, your problem is a malfunction thermostat that should be replaced. Good luck!
