Question about Washing Machines

Water inlet/drain light flashing

My Miele washer/dryer WT945 S will not fill with water i.e. no washing functions working though everything else ok. I have checked the filter at the bottom - fine but the impeller is not turning smoothly, some slight resistance when I turn it round. Have also checked the filter in the water inlet - fine.

It appears your timer/controller has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.

Open the door manually.
Open the drain flap on front left bottom
The door release can be seen hanging, pull the cord, the door will open.
Close and open the door 2 or 3 times and your machine will work ok.

Hi Yugin.That indicates your machines water inlet valve is faulty.(Means it's taking less water then normal)Please check this steps & do it fast before water inlet is finishes:1-Turn your machine on & run empty with pre-wash cycle first.2-Please ajar the detergent drawer & check runing water on compartment one 3-Please press pre-wash button & compare the running water volume on compartment two.If the running water volume 1 is less then 2 or vs.water valve needs to be replace.That's causing problem.I hope that helps.Thanks.

Miele WT945 leaks water from internal drain


Hi
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

Miele WT 945 Washer Dryer - Spin not working + Water Inlet/Drain Light Flashes


Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Your filter of the water inlet valve is accessible outside the machine; it is at the water entry point. Close your faucet & check this out; this gets clogged often.

Hope i am helpful...... Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.
