I am not in the UK, but close by in Ireland, can you help me?

This answer was rated:

I am not in the UK, but close by in Ireland, can you help me? I have an Aquasave ZT-485 dishwasher, the back right-hand white roller came off and lodged on the heating element. It melted on to the element, I got most of it off but some plastic is still stuck on the element. Is this dangerous? Can I still use the machine?
Thank you

You can use this- the plastic will continue to get burned up a bit every time you use this and there is not enough material there to cause any issue by its slow burn anyway. You can take pliers and try cracking off the plastic from time to time as it will get brittle enough to break off the element.
