I have the same model with the same problem. I think you will find that there are two temperature sensors which are located under the heater. (one at the bend and the other further along the heater. The one at the heater bend ie at the back right hand corner of the washer will be the problem. It is a non-resetting switch which trips out at 90c. To change it you need to remove the small metal panel at the back. You may need to remove screws holding the casing together to achieve this. ( Dont forget to switch the power off & remove lower tray)
Remove the wires from the two spade terminals. Put a multimeter across the terminals. If it is duff there will be no change in the meter reading.(If good the meter will read 0 - short cct.)
The thermostat unscrews from the housing - be careful because the housing might loosen instead and then you will have to put that back in . Pop in the replacement and refit the wires. Reassemble & test.
