Here the part.
To test the thermistor remove it from circuit and read Ohms at its terminals. If the thermistor is good it must read zero or very low impedance. If it reads open, then it is broken.

The thermostat measures the temperature of the incoming water. If it's too cold, the programmer switches on the heating element.When the water is hot enough, the programmer makes the drum rotate back and forth, sloshing the clothes through the soapy water.If the heater/heating element is the washing machine is good.Then also check it with meter.If you have already replaced the heating element then the element is god,But this element is controlled by the thermostat.Check the thermostat with meter to confirm the fault.
A washing machine fills with water, heats it up to the right temperature, and then when the thremostat tells the programme timer that the right temperature is reached the programme timer moves on to start rinsing and spinning. To test if a element is working or not connect a ohmmeters live and neutral wires to the corresponding connectors on the element and check for a positive reading, no reading would mean a faulty element, also use the ohmmeter to read across both terminals again and the earth terminal on the element but in this case a positive reading would mean a faulty element and a negative reading would mean no fault on the earth to live and earth to neutral connectors. if the heater is faulty, or the thermostat, or the programme timer is faulty, then the washing machine will stick on wash. It will either boil the water and heat for ever, or it will wash for ever, waiting for a signal from the thermostat that never comes.If it takes much longer than normal, the main suspect is that it's taking a long time to heat the water but it is still heating it. This could be caused if the machine is taking too much water in on wash (check the water level on wash looks normal).
If you suspect the heating element could be causing the slow wash times, try pouring some hot water into the soap dispenser drawer while it is initially filling up. If this significantly reduces the wash time it could indicate that it is slow due to taking a long time to heat the water. This will help to confirm the fault.
