Doesn't heat up the water, no matter what program chosen
Hi, i've got WT945 and was working happiliy for about 2 years.
But all of a sudden, it's not heating up the water at all. whatever programme i chose!
realised this problem when i put very few load in, and chose 90deg wash. after 50min or so, the washing was "finished" (or so the beep told me), but the cloths were still dirty, AND cold.
wondered why, and tried it once again. this time checked the water temperature after 20min by opening the door, and it was veeeery cold!
i've unplugged the machine to reset (hopefully...) everything, cleaned the drainage and the water pipe. there is no error signal.
if you know anything that could be done, please help me!!
Re: doesn't heat up the water, no matter what program...
Problem is usually the Set of relays in bottom of machine supplying power to the heater element, these are accsessible from the front of the machine once the hinged front panel is opened. I speak from personal experience , have had a few of these go on my Machines

take the back off the heater has 1 10m nut in the middle and 2 wires on it take off wires undo 10m nut prize off the heater it is compressed in a rubber it might take a bit of force the best thing to do before this is to test the heater with a multi meter 1st if there is no reading across the two terminals the heater has gone get a new heater and have a look at it you will see what holds it in
You already said it, so check the carbon brushes. Once it is no longer able to push the rotor or stator it need to be replace. Carbon brushes are customized at the machine shop, so you should bring it so that you have a sample of the brushes itself. Just be observant when disassembling the motor so that you put it back to exact place. Thanks for asking.
you will need to try the vinegar/water cleaning... 1/2 cup white vinegar to full tank water..run until empty..then redo, with clean tank of water....taste water when done, no bad taste this has to be done on these machines at least once a year.....
If it is the bottom hose on the condenser box leaking.
This is a vent.
It is most likely the condenser box is blocked with fluff and will require cleaning or replacement. I imagine the appliance is not drying very well if at all
