Question about Miele W1215

1 Answer

Miele W1215 stopped working

My washer does not show anything on the time screen. It reads _ ._ _ and none of the other controls will light up. I have drained the machine but I can get nothing to start. I have tried restarting and only the pump turn on and nothing else happens. Is there a reset button. The cloths inside are wet.

    I have the same problem. My Miele W1215 quit mid-cycle, nothing would light up on the control panel, and the door wouldn't open. I had to go through the manual door-opening sequence. Have checked the electrical plug, and for any circuit break. No problems with either of those.

It means the electronics board that controls the machine has shorted out and must be replaced. Expensive if not under warranty--at least $500 for the board, plus labor. Same thing happened to mine, after 14 months of use. Am arguing with Miele to get them to pay for it, shouldn't have to completely replace the controls of the machine after such a short time.

I have a Miele W1215 washer that died during mid cycle with no power and it looks like it is getting power to the machine, but control board doesn't lite up and will not open door.

YouFixit in Europe does a complete overhaul on this board for less than 100 Euros. See Miele Repair ELP150 / ELP152 / ELP153 / EL154. This also prevents some other issues with this board from happening in the future.

My Miele w1215 has mold growing on the rubber seal around the door. Water seems to pool in there. I have been wiping after each use, but the mold smell seems to get into every load of laundry that I do. ...

Yes it can be replaced - a bit tech savvy to do, the reasons for these awful odour is that you have not/ did not know a need to run a hot wash (60 - 75 deg) cycles on a regular basis, although these monkeys that sell the machines should inform/advice you the customer that a once/twice a week cycle to eliminate the molds be recommended.

Unfortunately when it gets to the beyond stage the odour has embedded into the rubber & vitually impossible to remove.

What's the model # ? If it's a CVA615 or CVA610, did you complete the descaling process properly, by performing the final rinse, (re-filling water tank and turning the steam selector on?)

No Power lights, anything, on a Miele W1213 washer.

make sure the door is closed properly and push it hard as this completes the light circuit on the display and then allows the unit to work.

I have a Miele G841 SC Plus Novotronic Dishwasher. The Intake/Drain light is blinking and it won't work. What do I do?

I had a problem where my G842Plus dishwasher would run through the prewash and then the intake/drain light would start blinking and it wouldn't work. There would be water in the bottom of the dishwasher. After cleaning out various items to no avail, we called Miele technical support and they told us to reset the codes and then keep trying it over and over until it worked.
Here is how we reset the codes:
  • Turn dial to stop/off
  • Turn dial to Normal Plus
  • Press Start
  • Press power
  • Then press the start button for one second and let go
