When the temperature control knob is turn up and down, you can hear a soft clicking sound at the room temperature mark. Yet water will not heat up. What is the chance that the heating element is faulty?

Re: machine is cold on a hot wash
I think there's a good chance it's the heater at fault. if you know how to use a multimeter i would test across the pins and check to see if they go to earth, if they do its ne heater time if not there is a problem elsewhere

where the hoses go into the machines you will notice those valves are controled by solnoid switch thats what starts and stops water flow as you turn selector knob you should hear them click if that turn off water supply remove hoses from back of machine check if filter screen is in place and that there is no trash keeping valve open p.s switch from hot and cold to see which one needs to be replaced or repaired
Make sure the hoses are connected correctly to the water valve on the machine. The connections will be marked with an "H" and a "C".
Given they are correct, most current washing machines have and auto temp feature on the water fill. It allows even cold water settings to bring in some hot water to make sure the water temp is hot enough to efficiently disolve your laundry detergant. The preset temps are usually around 75* for cold, and 105* for warm. Hot water comes in at whatever temp your household water temp is.
Some washing machines allow hot water to enter only during certain cycles. Others intermittently allow hot and cold to enter, to temper the temperature of the water. Consult your owner's manual if you are unsure about whether the machine is acting abnormally.
If you're sure the machine isn't working the way it used to--or should--try these tests:
* Is the hot water turned on? If not, turn it on.
* Is the washer getting cold water but no hot water? If so, check to see if the control panel settings are correct.
It sounds like you have the hot and cold water lines to the washer reversed.
Try turning off the tap for the hot water then setting the washer to just cold wash and then hot washif you get nothing on the cold and cold water when set to hot they are probably reversed. Typically if the auto-temp control is broken you will only get hot or cold coming out on any setting.
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...
Make sure the hot water is hot.....coming to the machine..See if you hear the control valve click in when you turn on the machine in a totally hot water setting..If no click or no water runs in the solinoid for hot water may be bad. It could also be the timer control unit. If you are savy with a multimeter you can check to see if the hot water solinoid is getting 120vac applied to it when it should be running hot water. If so the solinoid is bad if not the timer control unit is out...
