Access to flow thru heater

I need to locate and check the flow thru heater element on a AEG F40640 PNC 911232601. Is it accessed via the front kick plate / side panel or via the lid next to the waste filter on the bottom of the washing cabinet?

On the 40660 washer this element is in line with the top sprayer arm pipe and is at the back bottom of the washer. Easly reachable by removing the back bottom plate. Has a clamp on each end and a electrical push on connector.

HE error code on samsung dishwasher?

This is usually a failed HEATING ELEMENT or HEATER RELAY. Disconnect power & remove the dishwasher from under the counter.
The HEATER RELAY is located on the right side of the D/W. A metal panel/shield (on the right side) must be removed to gain access for testing.
Testing the HEATING ELEMENT *can* be done from the bottom/front---but is easier if the D/W is placed on it's back---and removing the bottom cover/panel.
In many cases I have seen failed HEATING ELEMENTS or RELAYS on Samsung D/Ws---in homes which had an INSTANT WATER HEATER (AKA: Tankless Water Heater).
This type of Water Heater requires a minimum GALLON-PER-MINUTE of water flow---before it will *heat* the water.
Many dishwashers have a lower GPM flow rate than required---this results in NO HOT WATER at all during water fill.
The D/W heating sytem remains "on" for long periods of time---each time the D/W is used.
Eventually the HEATING ELEMENT or HEATER RELAY fails

Dishwasher isn't drying probably coming up with error three. Can't locate a solution to this. Can anyone help?

I would say a 3 fault is a heater element fault so you water is not getting hot atall. The heater is located in the base which you can gain access to from the front bottom of the appliance but be very careful the base plate is very sharp and will cut you, cover it with a towel for safety. The element is a little tricky to change but not impossible if you have some diy skills. Make sure you tighten the clamps that hold the element to the spray motor as it will leak and then give you an f2 fault. I think the elements are about £40 quid if you do it yourelf.

Hope this helps

Water not heating up

Hi. I would test the element first. This will be the likely issue.

First, open the door and look into the tub and locate the heating element (if it is covered, remove the lower dish rack and cover). The heating element has two terminals which extend through the bottom of the tub, note the general location where they go through.

To access the heating element's wiring, remove the lower panel located beneath the door. The panel is usually held in place with two screws either above or below the panel. It may be necessary to first open the door to the dishwasher to reach the screws over the panel, then close the door to remove the panel.

Look into the lower access area and locate where the terminals come through the tub. Each terminal has a wire connected to it. Label the wires and the terminals so that they can be properly reconnected. Pull the wire off of each terminal; they are connected with a slip on connector. Firmly pull the connector, do not pull on the wire. You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers. Inspect the connector and terminal for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced. Test the resistance of the heating element using a multimeter. Set the multimeter to the ohms setting X1 and touch one probe to each of the terminals. A normal reading will be somewhere between infinity and zero. The exact reading differs by manufacturer and model. If the indicator does not move (infinite resistance) or moves to the other extreme of the scale (zero resistance) then the element is damaged and should be replaced.

  • NOTE_ If the element passes its respective test; Replace the main control device.

AEG Favorit 40650 water heater not working. How do I check if it is the heater element failure or the printed circuit board control unit

Check the element by using an Ohm meter. You should get an ohm reading if the element is OK. If the element is open circuit you would get an infinity reading. Just note that "newer" machines do not use the traditional heating elements but do have a (Inductive heater) coupled in line with the hose feeding the top spray arm of the washer. This unit must be cheched by a dealer as a DIY will have dificullty checking it.

AEG 50740

Some machiens front bottom plastic is a "bump" off type (push sideways clip) Some machiens have electrical elements but some (later models) have inductive heater that fit in line with thewater pipe feeding to the main top washer arm. The electrical connection to this inductive heater could be loose or the inductive heater itself could be faulty

Water not heating. Element replaced with new but still no joy.

The water is heated via a "inductive heater" and not the usual heating elements. This heating device is at the bottom back of the dishwasher and is a cyliderical +/- 15 cm long metal tube. It can easly be removed by the wire clamps at each end. It does have electrical push on connector that just plugs out. If the electrical connections are good I suggest you replace it with a new one (if you can get one).

I had this same problem on our AEG dishwasher. The reason was on the controller board. There is one relay switch which drives the heater element.One of the legs of that relay box was disconnecteds from the circuitboard. Check this out.

The thermistor is located in the sump assembly next to the heater element.  The only way to get to it is to remove the dishwasher, turn it on it's side, remove the bottom panel to gain access to it.  Before you do that, remove the front door panel to gain access to the wiring harness.  About 1/3rd the way up from the bottom of the door, check to make sure that the wiring is not cut or damaged.  If you do find a broken wire, repair it and it should run fine.  Rarely does the thermistor go bad.  Good luck.
