Hi, welcome to Just answer .... it is usually the heater when it wont heat ... can you test the element with a multimeter ? If yes please let me know its complete model number

Hi kevin, took ages to get to it the heater [ flow through, underneath behind the pump] but it seems fine 26 ohms across the terminals. So how do I trouble shoot the sensor/ controller?
It is a built in model Electrolux model; ESL66910 [###-##-####]

If the element is fine then it is most likely the sensor that need replacement ... you can test it with a meter before replacing

sensor has 4 wires all the same color sounds tricky I can't track down a wiring diagrame, any thoughts

that is the guy it is mounted in the sump. I assume it will open circuit ie infinite resistance if it is working? but it must be two sensors in one.
Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
it will show open circuit if it is not working ... if it working it will show continuity across those two terminals
