AEG dishwasher not heating

I have a favorit 86070, which is running but does not heat up. Is this likely to be a heater element failure or PCB? What is the easiest diagnostic sequence?

The easiest way to find it out, is to open dishwasher's rear panel and follow the next steps: -Check whether you have 115/220V on the heating element tags. -If you can read 115/220V on its tags, you should replace the element. -In case you can't read any voltage on its tags, check with a multi-meter for the thermostat's resistance. -If you can't read any resistance, you should replace the thermostat. - In case the thermostat is OK, your problem is with the PCB. Good luck !

Heater, 230V./2000W.-d.32mm.
The heating element, which is encased inside a tube, is used to heat the washing water. The heating element is not activated during the drying phase. Inserted into the delivery side of the washing pump and coupled with the duct which directs water to the upper spray arm.
Built-in safety devices: Two thermostats
First thermostat: auto-reset bi-metal thermostat calibrated to 98°C and connected in series to one branch of the heating element.
Second thermostat: manual-reset fuse calibrated to 206°C and connected in series to the second branch of the heating element. If this fuse intervenes, the heating element is disconnected definitively.

The problem when the dishwasher does not heat is failure which requires to remove the qualified personnel and therefore error code is not shown on the display but it is visible in the service mode.

wiring between heating element and PCB
PCB (printed circuit board)

The unit dosn't heat

Check heater element has power. And also setting temp must be minimum 3 degree + than room temp, with heat mode. If RV system, check power to RV. If not PCB problem. If power to heating element, still no heat, replace heating element. Thanks.

The dryer spins but does not get hot and the clothes are not drying

It would appear if there is no heat at all that the heat element is open. The easiest way to check this is to pull off the back. Then pull off the element which is on the right and examine it for a break in the coils. You can also ohm it out with a cheap VOM meter. It is about $40.00 part so worthy of repair. You'll want to make sure to check the air flow as this is what usually causes this failure. Don't allow the exhaust to get too kinked when putting it into its spot.

AEG Favorit 40650 water heater not working. How do I check if it is the heater element failure or the printed circuit board control unit

Check the element by using an Ohm meter. You should get an ohm reading if the element is OK. If the element is open circuit you would get an infinity reading. Just note that "newer" machines do not use the traditional heating elements but do have a (Inductive heater) coupled in line with the hose feeding the top spray arm of the washer. This unit must be cheched by a dealer as a DIY will have dificullty checking it.

Heater not working in cycle. No Error Code present

The LG 5811 dishwasher would display the error "tE" if the thermistor has failed. Not seeing an error could mean that the controller card (PCB) has failed. Hard to tell if the heating element has failed or wiring has shorted.
To look a little further, you can see (but not remove) the heating element by removing the filter in the sump area beneath the bottom rack. Disconnect dishwasher from power first and inspect for obvious failure of element.
Gaining access to the heating element is very complicated on the LG units. You have to drop the entire sump unit after turning the dishwasher over on its top.
Recommend a service call.

Beko washing machine

hi there.......this problem could be caused by a failed heater element ...if the element is not heating the machine will just wash wash etc...the front panel will have to be removed to check the heater element....if the element is ok...check the heater NTC ( little white plug in the heater element)...if all ok here....then you have a main PCB board failure....

it may be more economic to have beko send an engineer to you...
