Miele g1140sci not filling with water and amber lights all flashing

Posted by on

  • tom rodger Jan 01, 2013

    More details..... The machine had a piece of plastic in the pump impeller, which stopped it working properly. I have removed this and the pump now works. I also (perhaps unwisely), cleaned out the large plastic side panel, which had a lot of dirt in the bottom of it. Now the machine will start normally, but after about 10secs, all three amber lights flash together and the machine stops. The water cutoff valve is not opening, although it does work correctly when tested off the machine. I suspect that I need some reset method?. I've cleaned out all the pipes etc.Hope somebody can help? Thanks,tom

SOURCE: Water inlet flashing ,not filling,

Hi Paul,

We currently have a similar problem with our W939. I took the front panel off and found that the Miele service folks had incorrectly routed the ribbon cable linking the fill level sensor with the control panel and severed one of the wires. The machine was reporting a series of errors, one of which was an outlet blockage and the discharge pump was not working.

The relevance to you is that your problem may be a loose or broken wire or corroded terminal.

SA.

SOURCE: Washing machine problem

my w830 is doing exactly the same thing.

I am usually pretty good at fixing these sort of things so if/when I solve it I will post back here.

I think it is a motor fault - most likely the motor brushes are worn out.

That happened to me too. If the machine is a few years old and the hoses are not kinked it's possible the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. On this machine there is a triple cold water valve and a single hot water valve. Mine needed the triple valve and it is about $300 if I remember. Check to see if it's the cold or hot water valve by looking at the water filling through the soap drawer for cold or hot water cycles. When the valves go bad they run but the output is very low which causes the light to flash because it can't fill to the correct level.

You can get to the valves by taking off the top. If you don't feel comfortable working on your own machine have a professional do it.

Water keeps filling up the drum and inlet light flashes


either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

Miele W1926 check inlet light flashes at he end of rinse fill


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.

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light


Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

Hi, I have the same problem. Did you find a solution?

Miele washing machine


All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
