Zanussi FS1255W not heating

Recommended Posts

This old Zanussi Aquacycle 1200 is running through the complete cycles perfectly, except it is not heating the water at all.

I have changed ( unecessarily ) the element with combined temperature sensor. There is no voltage on the element when it should be heating.

The wires to the element appear to come from the pressure switch. The pressure switch has two connectors, a two pin and a three pin.

Water levels and everything else are working fine.

Any help greatly appreciated,

Hello Dave. When you say completes the cycle perfectly, do you mean it takes the normal amount of time and the laundry is clean when it comes out? What precisely is causing you to think the heater isn't working? Normally if the heating element isn't working washing machine should bring up an error code. There are anomalies where certain washing machines do not bring up an error code. But they usually exhibit some other unusual behaviour such as finishing the wash cycle much quicker, or taking much longer than normal.
