I have a Bosch washing machine model WFF1201 purchased in 1998.

This answer was rated:

I have a Bosch washing machine model WFF1201 purchased in 1998. although the machine goes through the wash/spin cycle normally, the water heater does not ignite to heat the water. The water heater works normally otherwise apart from the washing machine.. I would be grateful for your advice as to the likely source of the problem and if spare parts are required, are they still available for this model?
Many thanks

Hi, welcome to Just answer


As the heating element works intermittently so the problem is the element itself that needs replacement


a new one will cost around £45 and you can buy it here
