How to clean a WMF 800 coffee machine with tablets and sponge

Normaly to clean a coffee machine like WMF 800 you have to use a tablet together with a small sponge to prevent that the brewing tool stick together. Solitabs are very recommended for this, but they are expensive. 100 pieces with sponge 25€.
Now i find out to use simple cleaning tablets based on peroxide and detergents .100 pieces about 10€ and the use of spontex sponge cloths which i cut to pieces of 1cmx1cm. They work perfect and I save a lot of money. You are able after use, to pick them up out of the waste, wash the sponge,dry and you can use them again.

it says drop the cleaning tablet in the funel What


When you purchased your machine it came with a small cardboard box full of maintenance items and the instruction manuals. the cleaning tablets are the small white tablets,(about the size of an advil). The descaling tablets are much bigger,( the diameter of a soda can). You drop one of the cleaning tablets into the funnel where you put pre ground coffee. If you dont have any cleaning tablets you can get them from mieleusa.com, or by calling 800 843 7231

I have a cva coffee machine it seems like the brew unit is jamed it makes a buzzing noise like it is descaling itself , I have cleaned it and checked the shoot for alignment it makwes the noise and then fault 73 shows on the screen


F73 is a bad brew unit. The cva 4070,4075,4060, and 4066 are designed to use espresso beans.
If you use an oily bean such as Starbuck's french roast, it will clog the filter in the top of the brew unit. If you catch it in time, you can just replace the brew unit. If you run the machine with a clogged filter long enough, you have to replace the brew unit and gearbox together.
Sometimes if you work with the tech support department, they will send you a brew unit to install yourself. If you live in an area that has Miele factory support, you may just want to get a service call. It is very important to rinse the brew unit every 24 hours, and to use the cleaning tablets in the trap door( not the descaling tablets) if not, the coffee oils build up and turn into a tar that will clog the brew unit. They run about 300 dollars so they are worth doing the maintenence on.

i have two types of descalling tablets in my package, 2 large and 10 small, where do I add them to my Miele coffee system CVA4070, and how many


The large ones are your descaling tablets. they go in your water container when the machine tells you to put them in there. Your small tablets are brew unit cleaning tablets. they go in to the flap door under the ground coffee storage container in the top left of the machine. One cleaning tablet at a time when it tells to to start cleaning. Two descaling tablets at a time during descaling.
