The heater is the most likely cause, (put it on a 60 degr cycle and see if it heats up) you can also test the heater with a multi-meter (to get to it remove the back panel and near the base of the drum you will see five wires pull off the two outer spade terminals and use the multi-meter to measure the current throw the heater if you are not getting a reading then the element is faulty, good luck and let me no how you get on.

You may have overloaded your washer. Some washers have a safety trip feature that activates when the motor is overloaded. Try unplugging the washer and removing the clothes. Once you have done this, go ahead and start the washer again. If you that doesn't work, you made need to check if you have blown an internal fuse or call a qualified technician. I hope this helps. Good luck.
Jumping washing machines are often caused by the simple things such as incorrect loading, when you purchased your machine it would have given you a load capacaty, for this machine i think it is quit large but it does have the options of extra settings 1 of which is a half load setting i would surgest you try a half load setting on 1 wash & see if this helps the idea behind this is that if your machine jumps even more than normal then you may be over filling it & if it reduces the amount of jumping then maybe you was under filling it, if the jumping remians the same then we can start to rule out reasons for the jumping.. that would be your starting point to resolve this problem.
If your machine is a FAV6800A to FAV9800A here is the Service Manual. If it one of those machines I suspect a possible clutch malfunction. See this postfor what is involved to do clutch maintenance or replacement.
Do you have any error codes to the display if it's a FAV6800A such as dC or uC unbalance codes.Is the wash tub banging around on Spin Cycle of the Wash Cycle? ……Rich
your lid switch is bad. can take a pen and push it up and down to hear if it clicks. may want to take it off and see if it has split. very easy to do. if you need help i can walk you thru it. you can take a jumper wire and try putting it in both ends of the plug coming down off the machine. you can strip both ends of a wire and that will be your jumper. all that is doing is by passing the lid switch. do not put either end in center of plug. plug machine in and make sure the wire is not going to hit against frame and turn machine to spin and on.
any further question let me know,
did not stop the vibriation but movment stoped by installing three quarter in plywood under it glued ply wood to exsisting floor and screwed it down then put fences wood around legs works so far anyway
Im sorry to say, it sounds like the transmission in the washer may have gone out, the unit it self sits at the bottem of the main agitator shaft under the the tub, you may be able to have this replaced, but shop around for the right price.
