I have a Bosch Exxcel 1200 Express , which stops after 6 minutes , tripping the Consumer unit , in the house.
It runs fine , on the cold wash , so is it the heater element ??
Welcome, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

It certainly sounds like the element has failed.

Please open the door and tell me the exact model number from the data plate there

Hi Phil


I think its actually


Please go here (Just click on the word in blue)

This is the heating element.


Turn off the power, remove back panel, down low on the backplate is the oval fixing plate with the central nut. (Look at the 3rd picture in the link I sent you, this is what you will see).


Ideally, if you have a meter, test the element first, but from your description this is the issue
