SOURCE: washer leaks water

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

See the section for the basket and tub assembly's

I'd pull the cabinet in order to get to the hoses going to and from the pump first.

See the following:

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=131

If the hoses are fine, check the shaft from the motor to the pump and check inside the pump to make sure the inlet and outlet aren't blocked.

I'd also check the gaskets at the bottom of the tub.

If you're reasonably mechanically inclined, these are easy fixes.

If you have to get to the gaskets at the bottom of the tub, see the following for how to remove the agitators, pump, motor, transmission, spin tube and basket.

(It sounds a bit complicated but it's not really that difficult.)

http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=137

You don't have to buy a special spanner wrench to remove the spanner nut. I've used a short 10" pipe wrench hooked over one of the tabs on the spanner nut, tap the handle with a hammer and it should loosen.

Also, don't directly hit the drive block with a hammer. Use a short piece of wood under the drive block and tap up on the wood.

As an aside, see the following Whirlpool Service Manual for top load direct drive washers.


https://secured.whirlpool.com/Service/SrvTechAdm.nsf/2cd44500d572193285256a45004fd9d6/f7e2147fa98b28cf85257122007475cb/$FILE/L-55.pdf

Depending on the problem (hoses or gasket) it's certainly less expensive than calling in a repair person.

How do I remove front panel from Miele T440c? On the bottom left hand side there is a spring clip but no visible means of releasing the right hand side at the bottom?


There probably is another spring clip hidden from view (and preventing easy release) on the right side. I have encountered this on the bottom grille of refrigerators.

Miele G646 SC plus I wish to remove the right hand side panel of my dishwasher. I have managed to do this with the exception of the top of this panel. Does the top surface have to be removed to release...


Hi - if i rember correctly on the sides front top panel is a plastic bung, pop this off and you would see the screws inside - oly problem is most of the later Mieles have torqx screws - anyway if you succeed the gently lift front & push backwards - the top will come off.

But the best ways is to empty the washer of water pull it away from the cabinets disconnect everything.

Lie the silly thing on its back on the bottom will be 4 screws normally this will drop the bottom panels & makes it easier for you to work on the machine.

According to the parts manual this would have a waterproof inlet valve system - typical design for Mieles.

JUST BE CAREFUL - Mieles are excellent machines, try not to damage other components - perhaps the leaks is coming from some other - Miele parts are as costly as the purchase prices.

Hope to see how you get on...

I am adding some pictures to help with the resetting of the thermostat. It is actually much easier if you pop open the top and remove three screws on the top side of the left panel in addition to the three in the back. That way you get more room to work with.

Hope it helps.

The check drain and check inlet lights are flashing constantly on my miele w 2240 washing machine


I have a Miele W502.
Both lights flashing usually is caused by a water leak into the case of the machine which trips the float switch in the base. You can reset this by tipping the machine forwards at 45 degrees and allowing the water to drain out on to the floor. It will reset everything but if you still have a leak it will trip ou again due to the float switch.

I had the same problem with the 2 red lights flashing, which was fixed by emptying the float tray as above.
On further investigation I found that the door seal had rubbed on itself at the 6 o'clock position and had worn a small hole which was causing the water leak.

To replace or repair the Door Seal you will need to remove the front panel.

1. Turn power off and unplug machine after opening door.

2. Remove the front panel lower kick plate by inserting a thin ruler between the kick plate and front panel about 4 inches from each end and lever down until it releases.

3. Remove the 2 screws at the door lock switch on the front panel.

4. With the kick plate removed you will see 2 screws at each lower edge of the front panel, remove these 4 screws.

5. Remove the spring loaded band from around the edge of the door seal facing you and after that release the seal from the front panel and push in.

6. Remove the hex bolt from the 6 o'clock position just below the door seal on the front panel.

7. You should now be able to lower the front panel out of the locating pins and remove it.

8. With front panel removed you will be able to remove the tensioning band which holds the door seal in place around the drum by undoing the screw at the right hand side of the band at the 3 o'clock position. It is accessible from above with a long bladed screwdriver. Take note of how far it is tensioned on the thread of the screw and try not to undo it all the way or you may lose the nut on the band.

9. Once you have removed the band, slip the seal off the drum and slide the water outlet to the seal from the dispenser.

10. When you replace the seal do not do the tensioning band up too tightly or you will hear it squeak when you spin the drum in either direction.

11.Reassembly is the reverse of removal, taking care to put the door manual release strap through the inner slot in the front panel.

I repaired my door seal with Silicone Sealant and loose weave fabric tape after rubbing it clean with alcohol as i didn't want to pay $100 for a new seal from Miele.

I want to change the door seal on a w970 how do i open the front to access the seal, and any other problem that i may come across ?


Hi,

There is a very useful video here that demonstrates the process for changing the seal on a front loading machine. Additional instructions for Miele are also included.

Click here to view and then click play to see video tutorial

As to the process for replacement door seals - this is generally the same for all Miele frontloaders and the instructions I have included below are generic for Miele and should also apply to your model;

1. Open the machine door.
2. Turn the main power off and unplug the machine from the wall.
3. Completely remove the powder dispenser drawer. There is a small button at the rear of the dispenser which you need to depress to remove it fully. Once you have withdrawn the drawer to its stop position you should see it.
4. Undo and remove the 3 x hexagonal head bolts surrounding the door seal. Note these bolts actually secure the front panel to the machine chassis. They do not retain the door seal.

5. Now look inside the powder dispenser drawer where you removed the actual drawer earlier. In the lower left hand corner you should see a recessed philips head screw. Undo and remove that screw.
6. Locate the underside of the front panel right at the bottom. About an inch or so in from the left hand edge you should see a spring loaded clip which located within a slot on the underside of the front panel. Using a flat bladed screwdriver, you need to carefully lever the spring clip open whilst gently pulling the whole front panel from the left side. It should pop out for you.

7. Open the pump access door lower on the left hand side of the front panel and unclip the drain tube from its plastic retaining clip.
8. Now carefully swing open the whole front panel. It is hinged on the right hand side.

9. Unseat the rubber door seal from around the door opening area so that the seal falls inside the machine.
10. There is a thin steel band holding the door seal in place around the drum. On the right hand side there is a tensioning screw for the band. With a flat bladed screwdriver undo this completely and remove the screw Retain this as you will need it later.

11. Extend the steel band and remove it.

12. Remove the old seal completely.
13. Reassembly is the reverse of removal. Ensure you have fitted the new seal correctly back. There is a lip on the seal and this has to go over the lip on the drum. Remember, the seal goes on the outside of the drum. Ensure the 'tag' is at the 12 o'clock position.

How to clean the power brush on the miele vacuum. Is the brush removable? If so how do you remove it?


Greetings from GoVacuum.com,

Miele canisters have 2 different types of power brushes. The first, and most popular is the Miele SEB 217, and 213 Power heads. To remove the brush, follow these instructions.

On the bottom of the power head there are 2 yellow (older models it is black) plastic screws. You can remove these screws with a phillips head, or flat head screw driver. Simply unscrew these two screws. You do NOT have to remove these screws, just unscrew them to where they are loose enough to remove the bottom plate.
607475c.jpg
38be2d9.jpg
Once you have unscrewed the plastic screws, simply pull the bottom plate up and off of the power brush. You will notice the belt on the left hand side of the brush. Simply pull the brush up, and un hook the belt from the brush;
6ad212c.jpg

Now that you have unhooked the brush from the belt, you may thoroughly clean the brush, and un wrap any hair or thread that is wrapped around the brush. You will notice on the roller brush itself there are two indentions on both sides of the brush that run the entire length of the brush. You can take a knife or scissors and run them down the brush on both indentions, which will help you remove the stubborn debris wrapped around them.

Also you'll notice on both sides of the brush that there is a yellow bearing cap on both sides of the brush. You may pull these bearing caps off, and remove any debris that is around these caps. You may also lubricate these bearings with grease or WD-40, to ensure the brushes spin fluently.
3ab4cc7.jpg

After you have cleaned the brushes and bearings, insert the brush roller back through the belt, and into the power brush. You'll notice that the bearing cap will have two sides. One side of the bearing cap has 1 groove in it, the other side has 2 grooves.
25b4424.jpg

When you reinsert the brush back into the power brush, you may lower the roller brushes if the machine has been used a lot. If the roller brush is older, you will want to re insert the brush with the side that has 2 grooves facing upwards, and the side with 1 groove in it, facing down. In the first picture above, you will see that the side with 1 groove is facing upwards and is visible to the camera. The side with 2 grooves is facing down. This is because this brush is new. If your brush is older, you will want to reverse that, and have the side with 2 grooves facing upwards. When the brush is back into the power head, simply put the bottom plate back on, (IMPORTANT! Make sure that in the front of the machine the bottom plate is completely hooked onto the front of the power brush, there should NOT be any space in the front) Once you have screwed the plastic screws back into the power brush, in the front of the power head, push the bottom plate upwards to make sure there it is fastened tightly in the front.

I hope this helps you. If you have the larger, less popular SEB236 power brush, just send me an email, I'd be happy to walk you through cleaning the brush on this one also. If you have any questions about this repair, please feel free to email with any questions, I really enjoy sharing my knowledge, and passion fixing vacuum cleaners.
