Question about Bosch Washing Machines
Element intact (35Ohms). Checked the voltage on it's pins: 230 V on both pins andnothing between! The connection to ground seems to be missing.
Even when the washer is washing, the voltage is there. It means
there is some kind of switch between the element and ground and
there must be the problem.
I really need a service manual or diagram to investigate more...does anyone have one?

I had this same problem. There are two possible solutions. First, you need to look underneath (use 2 people) and see if any hoses are kinked. If that is not the case then the machine is pulling in too much water during the dry cycle. I'm hooked up to a sink so I just turn the faucet down until the water is just a trickle. This works for me. If yours is attached to the wall you need to turn down the cold water tap. Its a pain in the ****, but I discovered no one can fix this machine, not even Haier's recommended service A&E. I always know more than the repairmen, very sad. Hope this helped you.

Hi. Mike here. I repair Malbers in the Washington D.C. area. The most likely problem is not the heating element, but the hi-temp (or "brown") thermostat. They cost about $25 and are very simple to install. A "Torx 1.5" screwdriver (asterisk tip) removes two screws, in back, holding top on. Lift off top, and (from the front) see silver-foil-wrapped heating assy. At lower right will be a small philips screw holding a thin wire "hasp" which holds the thermostat in place. Remove screw and hasp (without dropping in machine!), unplug two "quiik-connect" lugs (orange & red wires) and pull out thermostat to the right. New one slips right back in. Replace wires, hasp, phillips screw and top -and you're done! This is 90% sure to fix. The heating element is only about 5% likely.
One last thing ... when re-inserting new thermostat, you'll have to "wrestle" with it a bit, as the tip needs to slip into a tiny (hard to "find") hole. Keep trying, and eventually it'll fit ALL the way in, so the hasp can hold it. To purchase part, call Joel (at Malber): 800-600-8913
Oh yeah, one MORE last thing... That red wire may be burnt a little, or completely burnt in two. Radio Shack and Home Depot sell "crimp-on" lugs (1/4") like these (female). Trim back the wire, crimp a new lug on the end, and push it back onto lower terminal on thermostat. If wire is too short, of course, add a few inches of 16 guage "stranded" (lamp cord). The same stores also sell tubular "crimp-on" wire-connectors (little blue tubes) to join the old and new wires. May God bless.

you should never have to remove drum to replace element. not familiar with this machine take back off and have a look or it will be at the front of machine
