  Yes, just jump blue to purple and select cold/cold temp and see if you get cold wash. If it works, you can  then jump pink to orange and the washer should function normally except you won't have automatic temperature control. Hot wash will be straight hot, cold will be straight cold and warm will open both hot and cold valves.

  Your topic title says that it heats in the OFF position. If that is true, you have more problems than just a grounded element. There should be no power at all at the heat coils with timer in the OFF position.

  The part of the motor that the wiring harness plugs into contains two switches operated by the centrifugal mechanism in the motor. Check the connections at the motor. Particularly the orange wire and the white wire that plugs separately into the motor thermal overload switch. You can take the cover off the motor switch to examine the contacts of the two switches.

  That is the motor repeatedly cutting on/off and could be due to a faulty motor centrifugal switch, timer, speed select switch, faulty connection at motor connector or an open motor winding. Going to need a bit more information to narrow it down. When does the problem occur? What part of the cycle? Agitation, drain, spin? What speed selections? I assume it does not do this during drain right after agitation stops? During that 2 minute drain, the centrifugal switch and speed select switch are bypassed.

  Ok, so it looks like it's a faulty temp control board or a problem with the blue wire that runs from the board to the temp switch. Check that wire out at the terminals where it connects to the board and to the temp switch. If the wire looks good and there is no corrosion at the terminals, I would go ahead and replace the board. The board is expensive, $125,  but can be returned if it doesn't fix the problem. We could actually eliminate the temp control altogether if you want. I can explain how to do that, but first, to confirm for sure that the board is bad, unplug the wiring connector from the board. You will need to make a jumper wire and jump the blue and purple wires together. Make sure you return the pink and purple wires at the temp switch back to where they were. With the board unplugged and the wiring harness connector jumped (blue to purple), try wash fill with temp set to cold/cold.
