Would not think so Mark as it is 240volt and solar is 12volt
There is such a thing as an INVERTER, which will convert your 12 volts to 240. However, to operate successfully, you would need to take into consideration the current draw of the heating device to ensure your invert was of sufficient size. It needs also to be taken into account how long you'd be operating it and whether your 12 volt battery capacity is large enough to deal with it.
At the end of the day, get out your gennie, I'm sure if it's 2 Kilowatts or more, it'd have more then enough grunt to do the job.
Personaly, I'd let the sun do the job, however am VERY interested in the washing machine, would love more detail on that.
