Question about Miele W310 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Washing machine stops mid-cycle with Rinses light flashing.

Hi, I have a problem with my washer where it stops mid-cycle with the 'Rinses' light flashing. I had a Miele technician come out to look at the problem. When he performed a diagnostic on the machine with his laptop he couldn't reproduce the problem. Admittedly he ran a quick-wash cycle without any clothes in the machine, and this is why it did not re-occur, I'll explain more on that in a bit. His laptop did however manage to find in the washing machines error log that it had encountered a W50 "motor fault", but because it ran through the cycle OK he said that it couldn't be a fault with the motor, more likely a problem with the main circuit/logic board that controls the machine. The only problem I have with this is that a replacement board will cost me $460 plus labour costs. I have subsequently re-run some washing cycles since, and through experimentation have found that the problem seems to only occur when there is certain amount of clothing/material in the machine (nothing over and above what it should, and has been able to wash over the last 7 - 8 years). It seems to me that is "senses" too much load on the motor and this leads to it ending up in this state. I found a suggested fix to a similar reported fault on this forum. They suggested worn motor brushes, but this seems unlikely as the guy from Miele said that they don't wear out through normal use for at least 15 years. Any ideas?.....

SOURCE: miele washing machine

All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.

SOURCE: W830 washing machine stops before end of cycle.

could be something to do with the drain pump, the machine gives itself 3 mins to get bellow a water level before it spins, if it cant make the water level in 3 mins it stops because the weight of the water and clothes would be too much for the machine that would start to dance the tango, check the pump and sump for minor blockages first.

    > Home / Repairs DIY washing machine advice (part 8) Washing machine sticks or stops mid-cycle repairs-sm.gif A very common fault on washing machines is when the program timer fails to complete the cycle and stops part way through. Many people blame the program timer for this but although it is a possible cause, there are many more likely causes for this fault. The program will stick if the heater isn't working, if the thermostat fails, if it can't fill up with cold water for the rinses, if it can't empty the water etc. There are too many possible causes of this fault to be able to give anything other than rudimentary advice. However, the common causes of a washing machine sticking that can easily be fixed are filling and emptying problems.
    Check that the cold water supply is available to the washing machine, which is a common cause for sticking on rinses. If the washing machine appears to stop mid-cycle and isn't filling with water on rinses then see Washing machine won't fill with water (or no water goes into washing machine) before calling an engineer. If the washing machine can't drain the water out then it will stick on the rinses, or it will abort with an error code.

    Washer is starting in mid cycle and not filling with water


    Check to see if the cold water selenoid works on washer. You can do this by turning the switch to cold/cold. It sounds the cold water side has gone out which will cause the washer to stop because it rinses on cold
