If you have changed the motor brushes, check that the pump is operating properly and that the tacho on the motor is working

How do I check the pump is working properly? And the tacho on the motor?

Hello Pip, I have managed to now check the service manual for the appliance which is showing that the fault lies in the heater circuit.. The heater is either open circuit, has low resistance to earth, or is not being powered by the module
