Facia panel keeps breaking/bleach ruins clother/water level too low and doesn't clean well

My facia panel keeps breaking. When I put bleach in the bleach container it gets bleach spots on my clothes, ruining them. There isn't enough water to get the clothes clean. The washer vibrates way to much.

Re: Facia panel keeps breaking/bleach ruins clother/water...

Do not use bleach, if you do you will get a bleaching effect,the new machines use less water, do not volume overload machine. mix the load to prevent uneven out of balance spin and check feet are level. Ragrds Advisor

Disassemble Miele fascia panel and control

There' s three reasons I can think of for removing a facia plate.
1- replacing a damaged original
2- accessing the control module
3-changing the language

On older models you may have to unplug the unit and remove the top to access screws that hold the facia housing. Then remove the housing to access the facia.

On newer models the screws were placed under the facia so the techs' don't have to remove the top.
Use a plastic paint scraper thin enough to get in between the facia and the housing. Pick a spot along the top or bottom and push straight into the gap. You can only go in about 1 mm until you stop. While still holding pressure inward pry the tool's back end away from the facia - up if your in the top edge or down if your in the bottom edge, until you access the inner step of the housing. Once your tool slips past the step, slide the tool left or right to find the locking tabs and pop them open. The facia will bend a bit. Watch that you don't drop it or it may scratch. The first is the hardest so be vigilant.

If you bought a new Miele Facia panel you should call their customer service support team. That's what they are for. They will be glad to guide you by telephone.
If your just curious to see what's underneath don't bother, unless you like looking at mounting screws for the plastic housing.

How do i remove front panel on meile washing machine w404 plus to rnew door seal

Hi, It would appear that there is alot of miss leading information written here.
Anyway here goes:
Firstly isolate power, It will be easier to view internal workings if the top panel is removed first (remove the cover clips on the side of the top panel to gain access to retaining torx screws) then slide panel backwards to then lift off.
Next..There is a torx fixing screw just just behind the suds draw which needs removing, remove suds drawer completely (press release mechanism) undo screw and keep safe.
The next job is slightly more tricky, pull of control knob carefully, you will then need to remove the facia panel to access the screws behind (facia panel with machine washing details) for this you'll need to use 2 x small stiff pointed implements a couple of stiff sharp pointed kitchen knives will do.
Now this is the tricky bit, locate the points of the knives on the very top edge of the facia panel, gently and firmly push the panel downwards being very careful that you don't slip as you may damage the panel or cut yourself. The panel will slightly move down as it rests on 2 x wire spring clips, your need to prise the panel towards you as you depress this will then allow the facia panel to be removed. Be careful not to loose the spring clips taking note of there position.
Now that bits out of the way the rest is plain sailing.
Remove the 2 x torx screws behind the facia panel located at each end undo and keep safe, carefully remove this electronic panel it will not completely drop out due to the wire connections that's not a problem as you don't need to remove it completely you just need to access a further 2 x torx screws behind this by moving it to either side carefully.
Once you've removed the plastic housing torx screws you can prise out the plastic surround housing casing carefully.
You will now see 2 x torx screws sitting on top of the main front panel these will need removing with the right hand one being a little awkward to access due to the plastic housing dangling in the way.
Next open the front chrome loading door (use the pull cord located behind the filter access door) remove the 2 x torx screws which hold the door locking mechanism (don't worry the mechanism won't fall down behind the front panel when the screws are removed) keep safe.
Next is to remove the lower kick strip at the bottom if the front panel to access fixings screws. You'll need to gently but firmly tug the plastic panel towards you gripping at each end. Once removed undo the 2 x torx screws on the very outer edge the others will not need to be removed.
Lastly going back to the door opening to remove the bolt underneath the rubber seal using a 10mm spanner undo remove and keep safe. Care at this point will be needed as the front panel will only be held on by the door opening grey rubber seal.
obviously if you wish to remove the rubber seal this will then totally disengage the front panel from the machine.
refitting is the reversal of dismantling.
i hope this helps others as I had nothing to work to as there was no information on the net of youtube.
if I've missed any parts out appologies as I'm doing this from memory.

Does the hotpoint model 9534 have a heating element in it to heat up the water if the temperature of the incoming hot water is not high enough for the set wash? Because when it only has cold water going...

yes it has an element. first thing is to make sure you dont have the "econmy" button selected as if you do this causes the machine to skip the heating stage.

if not its an element you need part number 1601318.

remove the front facia and panel and you will find the element in the front of the drum

Top load washer Inglis mod.im45000,ser.cp4304291 smelly, cleaned lint trap,inside of tub,put baking soda in,

Spray a stream of bleach-type cleaning solution (Clorox Clean-up, or bleach and water mix) between the inner and outer tub at the top rim. Run a soak cycle with water and bleach (full load water level setting). I haven't looked at the manual for your washer, so if it doesn't have a soak cycle, start a normal cycle, stop it after a minute of agitation, then let the washer sit for at least an hour before starting it again.

Sometimes the particle traps at the water inlets get a bacterial film growing on them. Turn off the water to the machine, remove the hoses and clean off the trap screens. If there is a film, put the hoses in a bucket and turn the water on to flush them out. This will help prevent the return of the odor.

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Your E20 code

This particular code is used when the machine detects a pump problem or water draining problem (failure to properly pump all the water off in the designated time). In this case, the fault would occur
just before attempting to spin.

Check your filter which is accessible from the bottom of the machine.

Sometimes intermittent FALSE errors like this can come up if there are high resistance (oxidised) contacts between the ribbon cable that goes from the POWER CARD to the facia panel electronics. To fix that sort of problem, remove any retaining clips from the end that plugs into the facia panel, remove and replug the cable end a few times. This gives the contacts a "wipe-clean" action and can remove the oxide. Obviously if the cable or contacts are badly corroded or burnt, then replace it.

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response, thanks and good luck

The part that controls the water level is broke

You didnt give a model number, but I will assume it is a top loader with a level selector knob. Is the stem still visible, or did everything break off? You can remove the facia panel with the phillips head screws on each end, and by removing the program selector knobs by pulling straight out. The level selector is fairly simple to replace. there should be two wires and a clear rubber tube. get your new part from an appliance part store ( less than 30 dollars). unplug the machine, and transfer the wires to the new part one at a time keeping them in exactly the same place. undo the hose clamp ( if present, sometimes just held on by pressure fit) and connect the pressure tube to the new level switch. re assemble the facia panel, plug the machine back in, and give it a test.

Hot water will not cut of

Hi, If the washer is unplugged, does the hot water shut off? If not, then you need to change the water inlet valve.
If I can help you further, please let me know.
