In most front loaders the element it accessable from the back with the back cover removed there will be a nut between two connectors with wires plugged on them.Remove the nut & oval shape washer & with a bit of force pull & riggle the element out.You will see that when the nut is tightend it sqeezes a rubber block sealing & holding the element in position.Hope this helps.Cheers.

Get this problem with our very mature 9 yr old machine quite regularly.
The answer is relatively simple: You will need a narrow thin bladed straight-head screw driver, your partners toothbrush a
bowl of warm water and a dry absorbant rag.

Ok! have you got all that ready? Great!

First remove the soap/softner dispenser drawer from the machine, by pulling forward to the stop, press firmly down on the thumb indentation at the rear of the liquid softner compartment, whilst continuing to pull the drawer to the front. The draw should now slide completely away from the machine and end up in your hand, no you have not done some irrepairable damage so stop panicking.

Place the drawer in the kitchen sink along with last nights dishes for cleaning later.

Now return to the machine and bend down so you can see the water dispenser plate on the roof of the drawer housing.

At this time you may want to bring your dry rag into play, and wipe away any grime (yuk) that you see.

Done that? Great! Now if you look again, closely at the roof of the draw compartment you may notice a groove, and that there are several plastic lips or knotches holding a section of the roof compartment in place.

Now this is the interesting part, because you have to use the thin bladed straight screw driver to wedge inbetween the groove and unclip the roof compartment from the holding knotches. You can be quite firm as the plastic is quite pliable and is not prone to break, however, if you are built like Geoff Capes I take no responsibility.

You should be able to detach the complete upper housing, bearing in mind the roof housing covers not only the softner compartment but all compartments.

Ok that should be done about now and the roof compartment complete with blocked holes should be detached from the machine and in your hand. I know you are thinking "Oh my gosh, what have done, call the engineer, why did I follow that guys instructions'. But once again don't panic, just take the section you have now broken oops sorry detached masterfully to the sink and give it a good clean with your partners toothbrush and some detergent.

Finally, clean the water jet spouts in the machine that you have uncovered with your warm water, toothbrush and dry with your rag.

re-assembly is the reverse of dis-assembly (said in true Haynes Manual tradition)

However, ensure you clip/snap the now very clean roof section back into place securely, and you are done.

Oh! I almost forgot wash the dishes and the drawer and replace.

How do I test the heating elements on Bosch Powerstar AE125 with multimeter

Product manual shows electro-mechanical thermal cutout page 9 but offers no troubleshoot steps except to say that overheating is cause.

Test elements:
Remove both wires off element.
Set multimeter to read ohms.
Watt and volt rating appear on side of each element.
Ohm = Volts squared divided by wattage.
For example:
Assume 240Volt circuit (240 Volts squared = 57600)
Assume 9000 watt element > check side of element for rating.
So 57600 divided by 9000 watt element = 6.4 ohms

Have you de-limed this unit?
Is there a check valve causing closed system in the plumbing, that might also cause decreased water flow?
Are there reduced-flow faucets or clogged aerators?
What happens when suspect cut-out element is no longer connected? The unit should continue heating.

Hi eileenhanks,

It is always better to have an expert check it for you. Might only be the drain pump not working, or even a loose wire on it. Replacing the Display Panel is a no-no (Waaay to expensive).

Most likely (my expert opinion), drain pump faulty, or loose wire between the PC Board & pump.

Good Luck :-)

You do not need to remove the end cap.Pull off the brush leads, and ease out the terminal ends of brushes with a pair of taper nose pliers..pull the old brushes out, take note of which way the shamfored end of the brushes are facing in the holder.
Push new brushes into holder and compress the springs as you are pushing them down, locate terminal ends into slots of brush holder.
This should help you with your problem.
Good luck.

Removing the heater core is quite a project, and I suggest you spend a little money and get step by step instructions at

I have a subscription for my Honda, and it helped alot.

When you are dissassembling your Element, have a sharpie and some sandwitch bags handy, and as you remove hardware for a certain part, bag it and label it, for installation ease.
