How to change the Heater Element in Hotpoint WF210G

Hi there,

Had a problem with the fuse tripping whenever the washing machine was on (particularly when power went to heater element). On investigation I saw the external connector to the heater element was broken resulting in the inside of the element touching the element casing. I got a new element however I am unsure how to replace. Is it a case of using a little force to pull it out (slip a screw driver behind it and force it out), and slip in the new one, or do I have to open up the main drum. Any help greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Hi there, this heater can be a bit fiddly but can be fitted from the back first remove the 10 or possible 8mm nut from the heater and all wires then with a pair of pliars grip one of the terminals and pull the heater 2-3" out then with a small flat head screwdriver start to prise the rubber seal out all the way round until the heater drops out don't be scared to use a bit of force on the seal as your new heater comes compleate with new seal

hope this is of some help murdozzz

Hotpoint aquarius will not heat water


Although I do not know your particular machine I strongly suspect that the heater element is malfunctioning/broken. Even if it is a hot and cold fill it still requires the element to heat the water up to the correct temperature for the selected wash. If it is cold fill only it certainly needs the element all of the time- apart from rinses!
Sorry but it depends now on who you have at hand to repair as to your next step.

Hi, i have owned my Hotpoint Ultima WT960 washer for 3 years now with no problems, however recently the washer keeps tripping my consumer box. it only trips on the main wash cycles and is fine on rinse and...

I would concur that is probably the element and or thermistor attached to the element that is causing the problem.
Before commiting to replace, try disconnecting the supply to the element and trying it again, if it does not trip, then this proves element and or thermistor faulty.

Hotpoint WDM 73 keeps tripping ringmain when powered on

I suspect that the problem is probably being caused by a fault on the dryer element or thermostat.
Remove the top cover and disconnect the heater, and see what happens..
If it does not trip, then prob is the dryer element or stat.
Hope this helps.

Hot point washing machine trips fuse 2 minutes after its turned on

Problem could be linked to the motor or the heater.
Try unplugging the motor first. and then try washer again if still tripping, then disconnect the heater element, and try again. if still tripping, then it could be anything
Sorry can't be any more help.
Good luck.

Hi i have a Hotpoint WD640 1400 spin Aquarius + and on the control panel it keeps flashing F-13 can anyone help

The dryer fan or dryer thermistor (thermostat) is faulty.
If the fan is working, then replace the thermistor, or check for broken wire.

My hotpoint ultima keeps triping the trip switch. it had f08 on the screen but now that has gone, but still trips electrics every time i press start.


f08 means heater relay cannot be actived so try unplugging heater element and see if it stops tripping the electrics.
