Question about Washing Machines
Hello Paul, I am not sure what a circuit tester is showing you. I use a volt meter to check the incoming voltage to the element. If the voltage is within factory specs, then I use my Amp meter to check if the element is pulling any amperage. The fact that you fill the washer with hot water then it works tells me that the unit isn't heating. If you don't have a volt meter to measure the voltage, then see if you have a friend to borrow one from. Hope this helps.

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.
