Question about Miele W864 Front Load Washer

Open Question

Not heating - main wash light flashing

Machine still works - I just add hot water with the pwder. Local repair engineer says the heating element is okay. He suspects the problem is heater relay and suggests I go to Miele. Miele will only give me costs for temperature sensor and heating element and that is what they would bring out to the job. They won't give me a cost for heating relay / control board. If it is the heating relay it sounds as if it would mean a further visit with costs escalating - any suggestions welcomed!

SOURCE: Washing machine problem

Same - there's a company in Denmark which does brushes - you have to hunt them down on the web. The brushes come in a brass slider and spring, and sit in a rubber cage. Make sure you don't throw away any bits of the old brushes as you might need to reuse the old rubber cage.

Another solution (if you have the rubber cage) is to move the brushes along a bit and bend the metal tabs on the brass slider. That will give you a contact again - the machine will work for a few weeks or so, which gives you time to order the new brushes.

SOURCE: miele premier novo, the main wash light flashing

Hi
Main wash is a fault indicator. The is a problem within the heater circuit, NTC, element, relay or loose wire. You will have to open front and check.
Remove 3 screw around dispenser and 3 10mm bolt around door. disconnect hose by drain pump and front of machine will open like a door.

SOURCE: Miele wt945 won't heat when washing

Possible that the heating element is faulty. It is best to confirm using a multimeter to test the continuity of the element. If so then check the voltage on the element at the time of the cycle and if there is no voltage then the controller unit is faulty. check for fault in the connectors , wires or links.

Whirlpool Quiet Partner II clean light blinks 7 times


The clean light flashing 7 times is an error code indicating an issue with the wash temperature. If the control does not detect a 4*F temperature rise in the main wash cycle, it will display the fault as the clean light flashing 7 times. There are several things that could cause the water not to heat, including the water being too hot coming in, an open door switch, or a faulty component in the heater circuit. The most common cause is the door switch not closing properly. This can be due to a loading issue or a latch issue. If upon visual inspection of the heating element no obvious defects are found, I would recommend resetting the control and running another cycle, paying close attention to door closure. If the light begins flashing again, you likely have a component failure. The heat circuit consists of several components including the element, control, door switch and tub thermostat(s). Reset the control by pressing teh following buttons within 5 seconds.

DWH B10 F3 - no heat. Stops at rinse and beeps + flashes 3 times


Hello

The majority of dishwashers are not connected to hot water from the mains but heat up the water internally using the heating element, located in the tub of the dishwasher, controlled by a thermostat. When the dishwasher has a fault with heating, the program will run but not complete and will show an error code on the display panel. Dishes won't be cleaned properly and the detergent won't dissolve.

If your dishwasher does bring in hot water externally from the mains to check the water is warm and there are no problems with the inlet. If the dishwasher heats internally then it is most likely a faulty heating element or thermostat. A fault like this will usually require a replacement part and a repair, but you can check the heating element with a voltmeter to ensure that it is the cause of the problem before calling out for a service engineer.

How much for the repair manual and trouble shooting guide for my W6021 asko asea front loader, it will not heat, but the heater is good!


Hi.

The thermistor is located near to the heating element(pt.40) and motor(pt.6). The thermistor/holder assembly is part 31/31in picture below:

d0233ee.gif

To get the full part manual click here. The assembly is at pages 4/5.

Here the part.

To test the thermistor remove it from circuit and read Ohms at its terminals. If the thermistor is good it must read zero or very low impedance. If it reads open, then it is broken.

If this solution was helpful, then please do not forget to accept the solution. Your feedback is important to us.

Regards.

Keurig coffee maker is on, lights lit, machine said it is brewing but no water is coming out


Even though the light is on, this does not mean the element that heats the water is working. After you fill the machine with COLD water, and the light has been on for a few minutes, unplug the machine and dump the water out into a bowl. Carefully, feel the water. Is it hot? OR just warm? Or still cold? If it is warm, the element is not heating properly. If it is cold, the element is NOT working. If the water is HOT, then perhaps the tube from the water storage reservoir to the brewing basket is clogged. If that tube is clogged, it needs to be removed from the machine and cleaned out. If the element is not working, or heating the eater hot enough, that element needs replacement. Chances are, the replacement cost/cost of repair would be more then a new coffee maker.

Error light flashing - wash & drying lights flashing.


My machine would not always set properly and various lights went on and off without reason or stayed flickering. I phoned Hotpoint as like you my warranty was finished. They told me to switch off the machine and unplug at the mains. Leave for 10 minutes then plug back in and switch on. It re-booted the control panel and last night I was able to set it properly. If it doesnt work for you I suggest you phone Hotpoint customer service (number of website) and ask if there is anything else you can do to solve the problem yourself before you pay for another service call. Failing that buy a new one!!

Washing machine doesnt heat the water


Most washing machines do not heat water, they merely let the hot water into the wash tub that comes from your house hot water heater.... when selecting warm, hot and cold water will be mixed together to get warm or when selecting cold.. only the cold water is allowed into the wash tub.. Please provide brand and model number of machine so I can tailor a reply toward your specific washer...

Miele Washer problem Novotronic Premier


Main wash light flashing is a heating fault. You either have a faulty temp sensor (NTC) or the pressure chamber has blocked and the heater element has popped.
