You need a test meter and a deal of patience. Power off and get the machine flat on its' back. Base plate off to reveal the underside. The heater should give a reading of 25-30ohms when tested with the meter - burnt-out wiring at the heater is common. Also have a look round the base for a safety thermostat. This usually a white rectangular block with a red button - push it, if it goes "snick" you've re-set it. Some machines have it, some don't. If you get a repetition, you're looking at a water level issue - don't worry about it yet.
