Doesn't heat up the water, no matter what program chosen

Hi, i've got WT945 and was working happiliy for about 2 years. But all of a sudden, it's not heating up the water at all. whatever programme i chose! realised this problem when i put very few load in, and chose 90deg wash. after 50min or so, the washing was "finished" (or so the beep told me), but the cloths were still dirty, AND cold. wondered why, and tried it once again. this time checked the water temperature after 20min by opening the door, and it was veeeery cold! i've unplugged the machine to reset (hopefully...) everything, cleaned the drainage and the water pipe. there is no error signal. if you know anything that could be done, please help me!! thanks,

Re: doesn't heat up the water, no matter what program...

Problem is usually the Set of relays in bottom of machine supplying power to the heater element, these are accsessible from the front of the machine once the hinged front panel is opened. I speak from personal experience , have had a few of these go on my Machines

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but you have not mentioned whether you were able to check the function of the drain motor itself- it could be blocked/jammed which would account for the machine not stopping (still trying to drain but being unsuccessful). Soaked clothes take ages to dry in a dryer!

Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Miele WT945 leaks water from internal drain

If it is the bottom hose on the condenser box leaking.
This is a vent.
It is most likely the condenser box is blocked with fluff and will require cleaning or replacement. I imagine the appliance is not drying very well if at all

Miele wt945 fills with water when switched off

this sounds like a faulty inlet valve as they should only allow water to enter the unit when an electrical signal is sent to the valve. you would need to replace the inlet valve. As it is a washer/dryer make sure you replace the correct valve which is the one on the left

A faulty heater in both a washing machine and dishwasher will trip swithes because they both cause an earth........the chances are you heater needs replacing......the reason its tripping after a short period is probably beacause the cycle doesnt start heating the water until after approx 15-20 mins depending on the cycle chosen
