KevinWhiteJA :

Hi, welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

How old is it ?

Customer:

about 5 years old now

KevinWhiteJA :

OK

KevinWhiteJA :

E-14 in this washer is heat temperature failure

KevinWhiteJA :

it means the heating element inside the washer is bad and will need replacement

KevinWhiteJA :

a new element will cost you around £75

KevinWhiteJA :

+ replacement cost

KevinWhiteJA :

there is thermostat as well with this heater assembly which should be checked for continuity

KevinWhiteJA :

if you replace complete heater assembly the part itself will cost you £115

Customer:

ok i see. Good info. still cheaper than new machine

KevinWhiteJA :

:) yes true

KevinWhiteJA :

the part is available here

KevinWhiteJA :

you can contact the manufacturer or www.repaircare.co.uk to get it done by repair engineer

KevinWhiteJA :

if you want to do it yourself then I would recommend to test both element and thermostat with a multi meter

Customer:

ok very good info. I am impressed
