Replacing solonoid valve on a W916 miele washing machine

I have purchased a replacement valve (genuine miele part) but the electrical connections are a bit different. The failed one is the original and is 16 years old. The replacement has 5 electrical connections on the white plastic frame on which the valves are mounted. ( there are 6 on the original) However, a short cable with connectors that could fit on the pins on the valves has been supplied, could this be used to adapt to the original configuration? I may not be using the correct terms to describe these connections, I could supply photos if it would help. Was the design changed and does this cable make the necessary adaption and if so what connects to where or have I got an incorrect part. Thank you Jackie

Hi
There are two variant of this model one with normal fill hose and triple valve and one with waterproof system and triple valve. If you have change water proof hose (one with grey box on end) then it only leaves the triple valve.if waterproof hose is fitted be sure to order 110volt triple valve

The part is the water valve. Before replacing it you may want to try to apply some teflon tape on the threads, also be sure you have the rubber washers installed in the hoses.
You can replace this part yourself if needed part number is 21001932 and should run around 35$.

Be sure to unplug the washer before proceeding, and slide the washer away from the wall about 2 feet.

You will need to first pop up the top of the washer. The entire top is designed to open like the hood on a car. Between the front panel and the top about 3 inches in from the left and the right sides you will see the face of a spring clip. You need to use a putty knife to depress the clips and lift the front edge of the top. swing the top all the way up and allow it to lean against the wall behind the washer. Be sure it is tipped back enough that it is not gonna swing forward and hit you.
You will now be able to access the valve located in the back of the machine. There is usually one screw that holds the valve to the back of the machine. There will be two wire connections on the valve that need to be removed, and the hose that connects to the top of the valve.
Good luck with this!

My washing machine takes forever to fill with just cold water. the hot water runs into the machine good, but when i use just cold water it rickles in.


Hello,

The solonoid coil that opens the cold water part of the inlet valve is weak and the water valve could be replaced to fix that trickle of the cold water. The hot and cold both fill trough the same water inlet valve, with two solonoids on it ..one for the hot and one for the cold.

Only Upper basket and cutlery basket wash


got a bargain here ,a miele ?? the rolls royce of machines ,cant say i have repaired one of these myself but if no water from bottom spinner then i am sure it could be the programmer like you suspect and a solonoid operated valve ,most likely fault is the programmer so by pass the valve and just use the ,main wash and never mind about the top only cycle .If it is the programmer then no doubt it would cost more than a new cheap machine so the previous owner sold it ,like a second hand car if it plays up put it in auction

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

Water not going into dishwasher


HELLO THERE:
First you are going to want to check the water connections to make s ure that the screen is not clogged and if they are not clogged then there is a solonoid valve that may have failed when these solonoid valves fail they fail in the closed position thus not allowing any water to enter the unit
You also may have a problem with your power switch but if it seems like everything is working ok but no water than i would deffinatly look at the solonoid valve being the problem
the cost to replace this is about 50 dollars if you do it your self and about 150 if a service man has to do it ok?
so i would contact a local appliance parts center that deals with your kind of machine and find out if they have the part on hand before starting any majior repair ok?
I hope that has been very helpfull for you
best regards michael
