    The biggest difficulty was getting the bottom off the dishwasher without cracking anything. Getting the hose clips off the heater is not easy, but not fiendish. It is probably wise to use jubilee clips when refitting - I replaced one of mine, as the fit with the original clip did not seem tight. It is holding together and apparently not leaking now. The hoses seem to be of high quality. I quickly found that the original heater was still working, and that the relay had failed in the controller panel. I found a compatible replacement at Maplin - it is JM67X. This is much cheaper than a new panel, but you have to be quite handy with a soldering iron and solder wicks to do the job. The alternative, a new control panel, is very expensive. However, the heater itself is OK, being an accurate match for the original. The eSpares phone support was excellent. If they would stock the relay, that would be ideal. It is entirely possible for the heater to fail, too - last time I had this problem it WAS the heater, and eSpares supplied that too. I am keeping mine as a spare as we have another of these dishwashers in the family.

    PROBLEM The heater element blew in our AEG Favorit 80860 after about 7 years - was fairly easy to diagnose as it took out the circuit breaker after which there was no hot water. Called 3 repair companies locally, none of whom wanted to come out to us (as we are rural and they had sufficient work). The third told me to have a go myself as they were relatively easy to fit, and he recommended eSpares to source the part. PURCHASING Quick and easy to locate the right part, and eSpares price-matched a competitor's price for the equivalent. Very fast shipping. Watched the online eSpares video showing how to fit this part to another make of dishwasher. Looked quite simple but fiddly to reach. FITTING Turned off mains and pulled out plug; isolated water supply at valve. Managed to pull out the machine far enough that I didn't need to disconnect water supply or drain. Discovered that there is a metal strip towards the bottom of the rear panel that is secured by two screws. Removing these and the strip exposes the heater element, which is positioned for easy replacement. Removed the two retaining circlips at each end, disconnected the two electrical contacts, and out came the old heater. Tested with multimeter to check it was indeed faulty (it registered open-circuit whereas the new one had a resistance of a few ohms). Replacement was a bit more fiddly and I needed to take off the side panel to get my fat fingers in to reconnect the cables. Replaced circlips, side panel, and metal cover strip. Ran machine empty at 65 degree wash with a dishwasher cleaner solution as recommended, and was pleased to see that it heated up nicely. Total time for job: 35 minutes. Would have been around 15 mins if I had slightly smaller fingers like a normal person! I did take the opportunity to clean up the accumulated muck around the door hinges too, and the machine now looks as good as new too and I saved around £50 on callout charges!

      Rory [at eSPARES]- I think you are mistaking this unit for the loop type of element which sit inside the washing chamber. This one for the JLDWW1201 is an inline unit, totally hidden from normal view. The heater element is located right at the back of the machine (lower right when viewed from the front) and you can't gain good enough access through the front panel of the dishwasher because the water filter/sump and main pump are in the way. The best access is when the right side panel is removed. Even then, access is not very good because the heater element is horizontally installed with the far hose clip hard to get at. Poor design from a replacement point of view.

      Hi Paul Mc. Unfortunately we don't have video advice for fitting a dishwasher element, however it's not too difficult. You'll need to remove the panel below the door of the dishwasher and remove the connections to the element from that side. Then, remove the lower basket, and you'll be able to access the element and remove it.

      On my AEG 50860, the element is at the back of the dishwasher. If you remove the bottom back panel you will see it, attached to its input/output pipes by two steel circlips. You'll need a pair of molegrips or strong pliers to undo the circlips.

    Received flow through heater from you for the above appliance. Prompt delivery thanks. Fitted it this morning but still not getting hot water. What is this PNC that is required? Have I purchased the wrong heater?

      The PNC code is the production number and is required for some parts, However it would not stop a heater that fitted from working. The fault is likely to be either the control board or thermostat if fitted.
