I used a Kewtech KEW1700 Voltage Tester to check voltage at the terminals of the element, and to check continuity when not energised.
I got a reading of 230 volts, and I agree it should be getting hot as the element was energised, but no hot water.
A strange one I know which I why I suspected the thermostat but as this is part of the new heating unit and was also showing voltage it has me stumped.
So there is nothing else which could stop the element from working then on this machine?
I have turned the machine on again now and will run a wash cycle and see if it works, perhaps I shut it down too early yesterday before it got to the heating part of the program. I'll repeort back soon.
So have just got home and the machine went through it's quick wash low temp cycle, the plates etc were clean, but wet, this could be the low temp setting, so not drying fully.
Have now set it on it's high temp setting cycle, which will take an hour or so, will get back to you with the results, if any
Well it all seems to be fine, hot cycle took a while, but it does I'm told, and it did get hot and the cutlery etc was dry when it came out so I think I have sussed it. Thanks for your help anyway, but me changing the heating unit seems to have done the trick
