Some dryers have a "fluff" or "no heat" setting that spins the dryer with the heaters turned off. Check to make sure your cat didn't step on this button : ).

The most common failure modes include the main temperature regulating thermostat, overheat thermostat or thermal fuse, and heater elements. If you have a blown thermal fuse, check to make sure you don't have a lint buildup in the vent ductwork, especially right at the blower outlet. I've also seen problems with broken heater wiring and burned-out contacts in the heater control selector switch. The bottom line is that if gets to this point, you'll need to find the wiring diagram hidden inside the control panel, get an ohmmeter or continuity tester and start tracing the heater wiring.

SOURCE: w1512 Miele washing machine I get

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I will start by saying your post indicates it is a Miele W1512 washer,(if not please amend info provided) based on the info you provided it sounds like a bad hall sensor or also referred to as "rps sensor" (located under the unit to the right of the stator motor)

The F50 on these machines actually is meant to identify the motor stalled error, but as you may or may not have learned yet, it is most often associated with the sensor failure a very common problem with this model.

This error can manifest due to something jamming the basket from spinning such as an item of clothing stuck between the outer tub and basket, or a very worn tub bearing but if you can spin the basket freely by hand, that isn't likely.

Miele has since designed with a kit for the f-50 f-51 error code which includes a new control board,wire harness,and sensor. I would recommend contacting your local authorized Miele service provider, they should be very well versed in this issue.

Let me know anything further you can add and I'll try to help in any manner I can. Good luck.

Bad smell from front load Miele washing machine

If you have a smelly front loading clothes washing machine, toss in a Finish Geltabs (the ones that are all liquid) and run the machine on a hot wash cycle, medium to heavy load (to get more water in the tub) with no clothes in the machine. You don't need to use much of a spin cycle so set it on low. The washing machine will come clean and even the moldy spots on the rubber gaskets will disappear. A second treatment may be needed if the smell is not completely gone. We tried everything from vineger to bleach to baking soda to borax to commercially available odor removers from Whirlpool and Tide. Nothing worked until I hit on this idea. It's cheap, easy and can be done anytime your machine needs a refreshing. I used the orange Geltabs but any fragrance would be fine. Keep the door on your washer open a bit when possible to air out to help preclude those nasty smells.

I've bought a Miele W310 front loader, which is secondhand, so i don't have a manual. i would just like to know how to do a short wash. There are buttons: 'Short' 'Prewash'...

The short cycle is only an option for Cottons. Make sure that you have set the desired program temp for a cotton cycle (95-30 degrees C). You should be able to select the Short cycle by pressing the button below the Soak light several times. (Note: this cycle is for small amounts of clothing which are lightly soiled - use less detergent (1/2 the amount for a full load).)

If it doesn't work when on the Cotton cycle, then the switch inside the control panel may be faulty.

The manual is available from Miele, . Enter the type of appliance and then scroll down the list. The direct link to the manual for the W310 is .

I hope this helps.

Need to know where to put washing liquid in my Miele G646 SC

Hi most washing liquids go direct inside the machine with your washing, if your using liquid there should be a small liquid device with the bottle that you also use to measure the amount of liquid and place direct into the machine drum.
