ARISTARCO Passport 1040

DISHWASHER MACHINE, ARISTARCO, am looking for a solution to the water heating, which stopped. Could it be the heating element that needs replacement, or maybe an electronic controller is responsible for this.

SOURCE: Water fill control

it overflows from the tub then:
This can either be a fault in the fill sense tube( small tube connected to the bottom on the outer tub from the sensor at or near the top of the washer housing ) becoming blocked or broken or a fault with the sensor itself. There is a mechanical adjustment for the level but it is a little fiddly to get the adjustment just right.

If it overfills from the drain hose:
then either the drain hose is too low and the water siphons out before it reaches the maximum or there is a tight seal at the drain hose to house drain port which will cause all the water to siphon out, this can also be caused by a drain hose being pushed too far down the house drain port.

SOURCE: LG WM2688.. water heater not working

I would also check that the unit is grounded. A non grounded unit can cause problems with the electronics

SOURCE: washing machine doesnt heat the water

Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

I have a problem with a fisher and paykel MW512AU washing machine. I turned the machine on as normal, start the load, and everything was fine. After roughly 10 minutes the machine stops doing...

the heating element has an issue
if you say after 10 mins it fails and stops
this indicates two things
the door lock is aok
and the machine fills

next comes heating up the water
some 10 mins into a warm wash

so perhaps the heating element has an issue
or the hardware cant detect it correctly
modern machine detect as they go
however usually but not always a bad element
causes your home electrics tip out...

but as the motor seems to run slow
it could be a sensor or the motor has bad brushes...

Zanussi zwh 6120 p is not filling up with water or spinning half way through a cycle. It just stops

looking at the diagram for the machine
i see the line door this is used to turn on and off the motor
i think if the heating element fails or one of its fuses {prob a bad element} then the machine will stop half into a cycle because it cant heat up
so it will just stop dead

its not a very intellegent machine so i expect no error codes etc
hope im right and its the heater etc... as it makes sense if you look over the diagram at the link above

Hello My Dishwasher, whne finished a cycle...the dishes are coming out with a white crusty film all over them and looking worse than they do before they go in and I don't know why this is happening?

There are many probable causes of failure .

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Water temperature is a key element in achieving clean dishes. A dishwasher's heating element is not designed to heat the water that enters it. Rather, the heating element is designed to maintain the heat of the water that enters the dishwasher. Its a good idea to run the hot water in your sink for a couple of minutes before you run the dishwasher. Just to make sure the water is nice and hot before it enters the dishwasher. If the water is unable to stay hot, it can adversely affect your dishwasher's cleaning ability.

There is a filter in your dishwasher. Its function is to keep large particles of food and foreign objects away from the pump. Many of the newly-manufactured dishwashers have self-cleaning filters, and routine cleaning isn't a concern. However, some other dishw ashers need to have the filter removed and cleaned regularly. If the filter or grate is clogged or blocked with debris, it may interfere with the normal functioning of your dishwasher

F-08 error message on Hotpoint Washing machine WT761? The original fault on the machine was that it was tripping out and taking out a resetable fuse in my fuse box a few seconds after turning the machine...

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

On the normal cycle of my Duet front load washer at 37 minutes the machine stops and flashes F5. I push the reset button then the start button and the machine works fine after that.

Machine runs for about 5 minutes on normal cycle than stops and flashes f 05. It works on other cycles

F-05 is the error problem for :Water Temperature Sensor Error
If during the water heating step in wash cycle, the water temperature sensor (NTC) value is out of range, or the heating element circuit has failed, the "F/05" error code will be displayed in between the running machine.
Check the Water Temperature Sensor, Heating Element and Element Relay and Check connections to the Sensor, Heating Element and Relay
in this case mostly the sensor needs replacement some times its only the case of sensor getting loose.
you can get new sensor from

Zanussi FLE1416W Front Loader

Most possible reasons that the door switch or timer unit is defective. The dishwasher should heat the water to about 55 C as the heating cycle starts. In these cycle, the dishwasher pauses after has filled with water and wait for the water to reach the temperature. If the water isn't being heated (because of a problem with the heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it never continues. if you think that a user manual may help you more, it can be downloaded ($8.95) at url:

Indesit w113 washing machine

check heating element (rear of drum at the bottom) for open circuit, replace if needed, occasionally the timer will start to click round continuously, indicating the machine has a fault, the machine shuts down waiting for the water to heat up, elements available at most appliance shops but you may need to order specially?
