Question about Miele W864 Front Load Washer
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!

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.

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.

Testimonial: "thanks, you confirmed what we sort of expected"
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.

take the back off the heater has 1 10m nut in the middle and 2 wires on it take off wires undo 10m nut prize off the heater it is compressed in a rubber it might take a bit of force the best thing to do before this is to test the heater with a multi meter 1st if there is no reading across the two terminals the heater has gone get a new heater and have a look at it you will see what holds it in
