Hi, welcome to Just answer
any flashing lights ?
No flashing lights!
what about the drain pump ?
Does it run all the time ?
If the drain pump works fine, and the water is cold the problem seems to be with the "heating element" of the unit which is bad and will need replacement
a new one will cost you around £90
+ cost of replacement
How do I check that? No water clogging up and not in manual.
if the water is not clogging up then it means it is draining fine
water is cold indicates that the element has failed
Yes. But how do I check the heating element? And why do the program's keep sticking in cycle?
Usually when the element goes bad it wont even start or if it starts control detects a failure and so wont complete the cycle
to check this you will have to pull the unit out
then take a multimeter and test the element for continuity
no continuity means element is bad and will need replacement
If I pull unit out, where exactly would one find the element? And what exactly is a multimeter? Can I get it at local store?
this is a multimeter
yes can be bought at a local store however, you should know how to use it
after you pull the unit out
you will have to take the back off the unit to check the element
I wont recommend doing it yourself unless you know how to use a multimeter
Ok, will read up on before using! Is the element obvious to find? Do you think it is still easier or cheaper to replace or get someone in?
You can contact www.repaircare.co.uk if you want to get a replacement done
the part is available here in £89

Still not answered all my questions but will look further into subject.
Don't mean rating to seem harsh but problem not solved! Also not sure about guiding people towards the 100% of the satisfaction scale! (i.e. rate me as excellent or good) Useful information giving but need to investigate further as to whether that is the source of the problem! May come back and give you a big smiley face!
