Washing machine over heating to extent of steaming and melting the soap tray and taking colour out of clothes. what do you think the prob is? fixable or scrap?

This is in a student let so prob has been hammered

The fault may only be the heater thermostat, depends on age of machine as to whether it worthwhile fixing.
Should cost approx £100.0 to fix.

The fault probably is only the thermostat but if it has got so hot that it has melted soap tray it has probably got other heat damage which may rear its head later if not sooner.
