How can I open detergent drawer, opens about 20mm & won't come out any further


Pull the drawer out as far as it goes then lift it up and pull it out completely. It may be stacked due to detergent remainings.
So, you should clean the drawer with a soft brush under warm running water. Do not put the drawer into a dishwasher!
Replace the drawer by tilting it into position.
Hope it helps.

Tip

My Miele washing machine is locked.


Recently I received many requests from users in troubles because they could not unlock their washing machine.

I decided to publish a tip illustrating the unlock procedure.

These instructions apply to most Miele front loading washing machines. They will work on all the W4800 series washers.
Instructions on how to set on and off your Miele’s child lock function are also contained in the user manual.

If you attempt to open the door while the Child Lock function is activated you will get the message "Machine locked" and the picture below on display:

If the door lock is locked during the wash cycle, press the pause button, and the door will open.

In order to deactivate the Child Lock:

  • Press and hold the "Heavy Soil" button until the display shows an unlocked pad lock picture and says Ready to Use (hold up to ten seconds, it should be less).

If you want to re-activate the Child Lock:

  • Press and hold the "Heavy Soil" again, until the display shows a locked pad lock picture and says Ready to Use .



The drum door cannot be opened, and the machine may stay locked if one of conditions below is occurring:

  1. The water temperature is more than 55°C (130°F).
  2. The water level is too high.
  3. The Child Lock function is activated.
  4. There is a fault.

If the washer is in one of the above conditions, you will get the machine locking even if child lock is off.

If the door is locked because of a fault, and there is water in the drum, the machine will also lock up.

In that case the door will open only after accessing the drain pump.
The pump service door is opened using a tool stored behind the dispenser drawer.

The tool must be used only after disconnecting power.

I think I will post a detailed procedure on how to fix a blocked drain pump on the next tip.

I hope this tip has helped you to fix your problem.

Goodbye.

How do i open the filter door for a miele novotronic w526 washing machine?


There should be a plastic tool on the inside of the detergent drawer. It's a flat spatular type tool (mine is bright yellow). Then there is a spot on the little door where the tool fits in and you can use it to gently lever the door open.

Washer detergent drawer will not open...drawer lock or detergent cup?


Something has jammed the drawer closed. You will need to access the top of the dispenser.
Remove the 2 screws holding the top lid in back. Slide the top lid rearward and remove.
Pry open the top of the dispenser top and using a small screwdriver, unsnap the lid snaps.
This will release the drawer and you can clean out any debris that caused it to jam up.
Good luck.

Mold in the rubber gasket. How do I get rid of it?


Ckean it with a solution of detergent followed by a solution of bicarbinate of soda in water.

Leave the door of your machine open when it is not in use and you should not get this problem again.

Have a Miele W320, during the rinse part of wash cycle, water pours from underneath the detergent drawer. What can I do to stop this happening?


Is the drawer gunged up? Are you using too much detergent?

Remove the drawer, and clean it with hot water and a brush.

Look into the empty drawer slot for any blockages and remove.

Replace drawer, try pouring hot water into the open drawer to try to dissolve and clear any blockages.

Consider using a dosing ball and adding detergent to the drum.

Open the door, and in the gasket is the light, tighten it. All should be good.

Clean the drain by opening the door on the bottum left.
Use the yellow plastic thingy in the front of the soap drawer to do it.

You can open the machine door by pulling the yellow tag in the bottom door.
Drain the water through the filter, clean the filter and close.

Then unplug the machine and tilt it forward by about 1 foot until you see water coming out of the bottom (put towel on floor).

Plug back in and voila!

I do think that this machine is a major pain. No spin cycle and this kind of stuff to go through. Anyone want to buy mine?
