    Hi hope someone can help me. My washers a relic but still like new. After a violent wash cycle (Machine bouncing due to one of the legs not being flat to the floor) in which it worked fine. I then went to do some washing the next day and it tripped the electrics. I tested a few things as recommended on youtube etc and came across two black wires just laid inside. They look like they have snapped off a connection or maybe the board. The ends are bent exactly the same like they were connected to the same place and both are black. I followed the wires and they seem to have come from the bottom at the front which i assume is the heating element.

    Does anyone know where they attach too?

    Thanks for any help.

    Hi thanks for the reply. Do you know where the other ends of the wires go. I've followed the wires to the thermistor at the front as they are laid on the floor. They are very long. Both together and I believe they may of been snapped off the pcb. but where?
