Re: indesit wil 103 heater element
No need to take drum out. heater is held by one 10mm nut in the middle of the heater. when tightened, this nut compresses the rubber seal and holds heater in place. loosen the nut. the heater will probably be too tight to remove by hand so carefully use a screwdriver to lever it out

I had thi problem.I removed the heater element but there was nothing wrong with it when tested .Do not do this as it is hard to get element back in What I done was remove the top of machine and pulled connector of temperature knob It was corroded.I sprayed the connection with WD40and shoved it on and off a couple of times and hey presto it worked .Themachine is heating again
Unplug the machine and remove the back plate (5 or 6 screws). At the bottom of the drum you will see the element. Best thing to do is take a photo of the wires before removing them. Undo the screw in the centre of the heater element (not all the way off) Tap the nut and thread gently till it goes in a little and you should be able to pull the element straight out. Place the new element in (with nut in similar place) until it sits nicely in the hole. Then do it up nice and tight and replace the wires making sure they are in the right place and jobs done :) Replace the back and try it. Should be fine.
you will have to open the machine lid to see if its a plastic drum or metal.
the metal drum is easier as it has a 'spider asssembly'. remove this after taking off the pulley by taking out the bolts that hold it and bang it off being carefull of the heater element. remove the bearings and seal and refit in reverse order you took it off.
i would not advise replacing plastic drum bearings as they are a pain, removal of the rear of a plastic drum easy but not putting it back !
Remove the rear panel of the washer.
You will see the heater element at the rear of the drum,it has 2 wires going to it.
The thermistor as it is called is located at the end of the element,, unplug the connector on the thermistor. and pull the old one out, refit new thermistor, and connector.
Plz rate my solution.
With the door open, try spinning the drum, there should be some resistance along with a slight wherring sound. If it spins freely without much sound at all - you probably need a new belt.
If you can feel it driving the motor, you may need new contact brushes for the motor.
If the machine buzzes when it should rotate on program, you need a new motor Run capacitor also.
If no sound - nothing, the motor may need replacing or at least checking.
if you mean the wires that go to the back of the drum from left to right= green circle=brown wire pushon tellow/green(earth) square =2 lite blues yellow circle=dark blue if this isnt what you needed please respecify and ill do my best to answer ,ian if you add to this post it will inform me for a faster reply
