I have a Siemens XL1600 washing machine that doesn't heat

Customer Question

Hi, I have a Siemens XL1600 washing machine that doesn't heat the water any more. So it washes indefinitely in cold until someone empties it.I've had the element out, tested continuity at ca. 30 ohms so seems OK. Have replaced NTC but no change. Should I be looking at the pressure switch or something else? Thanks.

Hi, my name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect the relay on the PCB is not working to activate the heater. Do you hear any odd clicking sounds? Does it run through a cycle, even though the water does not heat?
