  • Modern appliances wash at lower temperatures,if the machine has replaced an older model it may not heat to as high a temperature as the previous one.
  • The electronics in the appliance should be able to register whether the heating element is defective, and will usually display an error message.

  • Make sure that the appliance is not overloaded.
  • Determine whether the selected cycle involves heating.
  • Ensure a heating temperature has been selected for the program.
