Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.If you remove the right side of the appliance, you can use a multimeter on continuity to test the heater... If there is no reading then the heater is open circuit..Likewise, you can test the sensor on an ohms setting
You could also look at the PCB Mark, to see if there is a dry or missing joint at the heater relay
thanks George, i will check the heater as you suggest, I assume it is an inline type heater as there is no element around the bottom of the dishwasher. Regarding the sensor, can you please advise where it would be located and what it looks like as I don't have any diagrams for tthe machine. Again please advise where the PCB is - is it in the door.. thanks
Post me the ENr from the top metal part of the door and I'll check for you
Different machines have different types... So the ENr number is ***** must
thanks, ***** ***** way when i pressed the reset it showed E-09 on the display which maybe is an error code?
ENr number is: SN26M253GB/44
Thanks for that... E09 is generally caused by the heat pump failure
One moment whilst I look at the diagrams
SN26M253GB/44 Exploded diagrams
That should help you... The parts lists are included too

thank you George, seems you have probably identified the problem - one last question for now, is the heat pump a combined pump and heater and could it be pumpng water without heating - I guess so..
Yes...Here is something I just found that will help
George FYI, it was the heat pump and I fitted a new one from 'spares 4 appliances', at £107. All working and back to normal now. Was a bit of an initiative test to work out that I had to get the base of the dishwasher off, and how to do that. Clever design, only 4 screws in total to remove and a lot of unclicking of plastic.
Many thanks for your advice, couldn't have done it without your help, Mark
