Hot water heatermatsui mf160 dishwasher not heating the water - mag-glass_10x10.gif elements will need to be replaced when there is no hot water, apparently less hot water or the hot water is taking longer to recover after showers, laundry, dishwashing or other demands on hot water. It is not difficult to replace a hot water heater element. Consult the documentation so you can purchase the right element for your hot water heater. If you do not have the documentation, write down the make and model information and take that information with you to a supply store. The store clerk will help you find the right element for your hot water heater.

  1. Step 1 Turn off all power supply to the hot water heater. Turn off the cold water supply to the water heater. Attach a garden hose to the bottom spigot of the hot water heater and open the valve to drain the unit.
  2. Step 2 Hot water heatersmag-glass_10x10.gif typically have an upper and lower element. Open both control panels with a screwdriver. There will be insulation behind each panel. Fold the insulation out of the way; the elements and thermostats will be visible.
    Disconnect the wires from the element and remove the element. If the element is installed with a mounting plate, remove the bolts with a socket wrench. If the element is not installed with a mounting plate, remove with an element wrench.
  3. Step 3 Clean the gaskets and the gasket area on the hot water heater tank. Install the new elements by inserting them into the hole. Be sure the gaskets are tightly in place. If the element is installed with a mounting plate, tighten opposite diagonal bolts so the element stays straight in the tank. If the element is installed with an element wrench, use the element wrench to install the new elements.
  4. Step 4 Reconnect the wires for each element. Close the drain valve. Open the cold water supply. Do not turn the power supply back on yet. The tank must be filled completely before turning the power supply back on to the hot water heater. Open a hot water valve; the hot water faucet on a tub is a good option. When all trapped air has escaped and the water is flowing freely from the spigot without air bubbles, the power supply can be turned back on to the hot water heater. After filling, inspect the area around the elements for any signs of leaking. If everything looks good, reposition the insulation and replace the control panel access covers

Matsui dishwasher mf2w/a not heating


If your Matsui MF2W/A timer stops earlier in its cycle, turn off the water and unplug the machine.

Pull it out and put it on its back. Remove the base panel. Remove the anti-flooding interlock. Unplug the two cables feeding the heater element and check its resistance. Should be 30 ohm or thereabouts. If not the heater's defective and you should replace it.

Pull the cables off each of the two thermostats and check resistance. It should be in the order of .5 ohm or less. If the reading is high then replace.

Remember there are two thermostats fixed to the dishwasher pan. One at the right back lower, and one at the left back lower. For the left hand one you may find it easier to access by removing the lefthand dishwasher panel.

And that's about it. Job done.

Matsui MF160 door tension is still strong after adjustment. Program cycle takes 150mins


Time consumption depends on the cycle chosen. For a full complete wash 150 mts is ok.

Also check whether water flow to your machine is free from clogging! Check the strainer attched to the water whose connecting junction.

We have a matsui mf160 dishwashwasher and it is struggling to get items clean - esp greasy items - i have also noticed it is not hot at the end of the cycle so i think the problem is there is no hot water....


The dishwasher's heater is likely shot. Get a new heating element. The same heater drys and the end but also heats the hot water during the wash cycle. No hot water = dirty dishes.

Matsui mf160 starts its wash cycle and timer stops


on most machines, the timer will not run if the water is not up to temp. if the inside is plenty hot mid-cycle, then your heating element is probably good. it is the thermometer that needs located and checked. if the inside is not steamy, then your heating element is the most likely culprit.
don't hate your dishwasher. it just wants to make sure that you get a full wash cycle at a hot enough temp. to get the dishes clean. good luck

Matsui mf160 dishwasher salt indicator will no go out


I think I have the answer.

On Yahoo Answers Blue Rizla Girl put up the idea that the sensor is some form of hydrometer. (i.e. floats in salty water sinks if not salty enough)

Based on this thought I postulated that the sensor is some form of hydrometer float in a tube with perhaps an optical sensor.

If this is correct why is it not working?

Is it because the float is stuck at the bottom of the tube, perhaps by some food debris? If so how can we fix it?

This is what I did on my Hotpoint FWD60:-

I took the salt filler cap off. There was no salt in the reservoir as it has been a problem for months, and I was only refilling it when dishes were not coming clean.

I poured 2 litres of hot water into the salt reservoir.

I then put the empty machine on the intensive 65 degree wash, half load and with the reservoir cap still OFF.

When finished I filled up with salt and HEY PRESTO the salt light is OFF!!!!

Just hope it stays that way until the reservoir really needs refilling.

While I was down on my hands and knees I took the opportunity to clean the filters in the sump. They do get full of bits!

I also flushed the sump by dashing a couple of cups of hot water into it and then bailing it out with a small yoghurt pot. I repeated this until the water in the yoghurt pot and the sump no longer had any signs of bits in them. (Dashing = vigorously pour)

I was amazed at how many bits I got out, especially considering I had given the machine a good clean in the past 6 weeks.

I even got part of a paper label!

So there we have it, try it out and report back.

My matsui mf2w/a dishwasher sticks during cycle. normally about 10 minutes into the wash. i can move it on manually but the wash is poor. the water does not appear to be heating


check the safety thermostat which is located at the bottom of the dishwasher. you have to remove the bottom plate,and then you will find easily the thermostat-KSD201/PF 90. you have to reset this probably.there is a red wax dot in the middle this thermostat, so remove it and use a needle to press a very small button inside. the heating element is working well probably.you can measure resistance on it to be sure.

Matsui dishwasher mf160


I used the solution I found for a slightly different fault, ( this was the same fault but without the bleebs)
switch off mains and turn off water. Then disconnect water pipe and lay machine on it's back. Switch on electrics, and allow water to run out. Switch off electrics and stand machine up .Reconnect everything and hey presto I can hear two good things, the machine gently humming, and my wife telling me what a genius I am !!
