What is needed to fix

    Is all of your water gone from the water resevoir? If so, it has drained into the bottom of the housing unit. As a precautionary measure Miele has put a "Watersystem Default" which deactivates the unit to protect from electrical damage. We called an authorized Miele repair service and they came out, took the unit apart, drained and dried out unit, I also opted to replace the seal underneath water resevoir unit as an added service, and 557.00 later.....it was working fine. At least until 6 months later, which was last week....it did it AGAIN!!!! I am opting to save my money and upgrade to a plumbed in unit to avoid this again. Apparently, after discussing this for about an hour with a Miele rep, it is one of the biggest reasons they discontinued this model so quickly. Go figure!

    Hope this helps.

How do I fix a Miele W 2653 Wasker.


Hi dear. You did not mention what fault code but regards rest of your information, I would say 3 factors play up with it.
1- Tacho generator or it's plug faulty on motor
2- Motor Carbon brushes worn out or
3- Power/control unit ELP151-KD faulty.
I can advised to contact your local Miele center to diagnose your machine.Thanks.

Brake fault and tyre pressure fault comes on dashboard and beeps intermittently very annoying as no problems with either


The car management system is reading it as a fault. Could be faulty sensors giving incorrect readings. Have it scanned and see what fault codes come up. Sometimes resetting the faults fixes it, but usually if nothing mechanically wrong then the sensor wiring may be faulty (water ingress, bad soldered joint or connection etc.)

Fault F63


Roger
Depending on the model number - (guessing its a W48XX series) F63 is a water path fault - This is the control unit that directs the water flow to the proper path (pre-wash, detergent, fabric softener ect..... ) Sometimes and audible clicking can be heard when this unit fails as it trying to switch to the proper path as per the program being ran.

No hot water. Display reads ER3.


Hi, If you have the book for this system, then go to the problem solving to the rear of manual. This will tell you what code ER3 means, and what you need to do to correct it.
If you dont have the manufacturer's book then try to down load it!.
All boilers and water heaters have different fault finding codes, so can-not give any more info, unless you can tell me the exact problem.
Thanks Paul.

Where can I buy Miele coffee system instruction book?


You have to buy descaling tablets from miele.  You turn the knob to program mode and keep pushing the enter button until you get to descaling.  You put two descaling tablets into your water reservoir and replace into unit.  Put containers under the steam valve and the hot water wand. Press enter.  Turn steam valve al the way on.  Keep an eye on the containers.  The process takes about 30 to 40 minutes.  The message will appear 'Descaling finished." Turn steam selector to O and press enter.  Display will read "rinse machine, fill watertank.  Fill tank and return to machine.  Place empty containers beneath hot water dispenser and steam nozzle again and turn steam selector fully on. Allow water to run through system completely.  When process is finished, display will read "Rinsing Finished."  Turn steam selector to O and press enter  Program selector is on Program Mode and display will read Descaling, Timrt, unit is no descaled and ready to use.  Turn program selector to on.
