Question about Miele Novotronic W1918A Front Load Washer
Over the past several months, I have noticed the "check water inflow" light flashing and the washer door locked at the apparent end of a cycle. Initial testing proves up that it only happens at the end of a hot water cycle; cold or warm seem to work fine. Manual only suggests to clean both hose filters. Have done so twice now; they're fine. Ordered & replaced the hot water valve; no change. Went through all the diagnostics w/ Miele tech on the phone, and it passed everything OK -- all valves opened and closed as requested. Observing the machine through a whole wash cycle this morning, it appears that sometimes the valve does not even receive a command to open at the start of a rinse cycle (or both old and new valves intermittently fail to open? -- seems unlikely to me), after which the machine times out trying to fill up, the "check water inlet" light starts flashing, and the cycle jumps to the end w/ the door locked. (That can be fixed by choosing "fine rinse", after which everything is OK.Anyone have any ideas about what to check next? Thanks in advance!
We're having the same problem. Did you have any luck replacing the right electronic valve on the cold water input connection?

Cold Water Pressure is not an issue. I took the top metal piece off and can see the whole washer - I put my hands on the internal hoses and I can feel there is absolutely no cold water flow in the machine. My guess is the electronic valve right on the cold water input connection.

Problem may be low water pressure. try putting in a y-piece so cold water is supplied to both valves. only effect will be that wash cycle will be a bit longer
