Installing a Miele WS5425 Washing Machine with cold water fill only?

Hi have just inherited a WS5425 which i want to install in the garage - in the user manual which i found on the net it says that although it it set up with hot and cold fill hoses it can be changed to cold only but a service engineer needs to reprogram the machine - does anyone know if this is a simple procedure and how to do it ? and also would both hoses need to be used for cold fill ? thanks in advance for any advice Chihuahua

Hi Sandy,
I had the same problem and some time later it stopped completely. The probmlem is in the Prorammer.
UNfortunately it is very hard to find because the appliance is very old. If you find one, I can tell you in detail what is the sequence to change it.
Good luck!

i am pretty sure its the main board, the easiest way to solve the problem is replace a the main board with a secondhand board, as well as obtaining a bag of spare parts, out a good working machine with faulty seals. You may have faulty seals if the machine is dormant for 3 years. I advise people never use washing powder in their washing machines, just use liquid detergent like Cold Power. the washing powder cakes up in the machine and when harden can be very abrasive and destroy the seals.

Have a Miele 1612 washer whose heater element comes on during any cold only program. As we are off-grid, any unnescesary power useage is unacceptable. Is there something I can reset, or do I just remo


Hi Ed ..
The following is from the Miele handbook and would indicate that the machine can have the water temperature adjusted...... However I suggest that by merely disconnecting/removing the element
the machine's temperature sensors would not allow the machine to work..
A compromise may be to select the lowest wash temperature (ie 30c) This is better than cold water for detergent economy and effectiveness, and machine life.. I understand your situation.
Good luck

Tap water line (cold water) The tap water connection is established using the inlet hose with the blue marking. If the washer is connected to this line only, the appliance will need to be reprogrammed to cold water fill only. Please contact your Miele dealer or Miele Customer Service for reprogramming instructions.

Water won't stop flowing thru detergent drawer


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of a malfunctioning water control valve- the hot water one, if the washer is hot and cold fill, and the cold one if it is just cold fill!
If it is doing it with ALL power removed it needs replacing. If it is doing it with power on it needs a service call to confirm that it is not something else- like the control board not feeding the correct voltage to the valve ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Which is hot & cold inlet connection


If you want to connect up a washing machine that uses hot and cold water but you only have a cold water supply (such as in a basement or garage) you can use a Y Piece connector to connect the hot and cold fill hoses to a single cold water supply (external link to 4Washerhelp spares).
The washing machine will then work OK. Simply screw the Y-Piece onto the tap, and then screw the hot and cold fill hoses to the Y-piece and connect the other end of the fill hoses to the washing machine. (You may also be able to buy this part from a DIY store like B&Q)
If you don't connect a water supply to the hot valve (and simply connect the cold water hose to the cold valve leaving the hot valve with nothing connected to it) then some wash programs may not work as some programmes only fill with hot water. However, some washing machines will work OK with only the cold fill hose connected. You can always try it and see. The worse that will happen is the washer could either stick on the odd wash programme or may abort on some. If you do this though it's possible for water to drip out of the hot valve on some machines during fill. It's best to use a y-piece if possible.
The fact that you have connected cold water to the hot valve is irrelevant, the washing machine will not know any different and will just heat the water up to the correct temperature. The washing machine may use slightly more electricity but if it's less than 10 years old it shouldn't be significant unless you use a lot of 60 or 90 degree washes. On 40 degree washes, manufacturers argue it's more efficient to fill with cold water only and slowly heat up the water to 40 degrees.

Is the indecit wm12x washng amchne a hot or cold water fill?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France @ 13:45 Tues afternoon.

You can easily check by looking at the back where the water pipe or pipes need to be connected. If there is only one inlet then it is a cold fill and the machine will heat the water up itself.
If there are two inlets the hot is normally marked RED and the cold BLUE.
When the hot water is not hot enough for the particular wash, the machine will heat it in the same way as it would heat just cold water. If, however, the hot water is too hot, it will mix in some cold!

Cheers,

Miele W1926 water light flashes


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.
