First of all, make sure you unplug the washer before making any measures, and make sure you unplug any connectors from the CCU, so you aren't reading parallel paths. Isolate the components you wish to test from the CCU or you may get inaccurate readings.
The reading across the heating element terminal should read 15 ohms. Make sure you aren't grounding your probe against the case, or you will get improper readings.
The NTC will read approximately what you have at room temperature. Was the connector plugged in before you began troubleshooting? A common problem is the connector falling off and generating the error code.
As far as the connector plug on the CCU is concerned, plug layouts can differ between models. Make sure you have the correct connector plug to the NTC. You may have to hand over hand it to find it. Unplug the connector at the CCU and leave it plugged in to the NTC. Perform a resistance check across the PLUG terminals. You should get the same readings as you mentioned before if the plug and wires are good. This not checks the resistance of the NTC, but also proves continuity of the wires.
Doublecheck your readings and let me know what you have. I would like to rule out a CCU problem. It is not common for this error code. I hope this helps you.

Ohm out the thermal fuse, if it is ok, then you can ohm out the heating element, be sure to visually check the element as well becqause it could just be shorted out internally giving you a reading, but first and foremost check your voltages be sure you are getting 240 across the outer plug spades and 120 volts from left to common and right to common, unplug this thing before you get into the element area or you could end up with a smokin fro !
