Hot water tap does not have any water flow. But cold part does. What is wrong

first, check all other taps in the house to see if water is flowing out of them properly. if not, check that your main stopcock is open. If it is, check if your neighbours have the same problem. If they have the same problem and your stopcock is open, check your cold water cistern. There's something called a ball valve in it that could be stuck causing the water to empty from the cistern. If this is what happened, sharply move the float arm to dislodge the valve and clean it.

Also check that any of your pipes aren't frozen, if you live in a particularly cold country.

Why is my Miele dishwasher displaying "Open stopcock", even though water is flowing and I've cleaned the inlet filter?

There are 2 possible main causes for lack of water, given that you have checked water availability at the dishwasher.
1. The water solenoid valve in the machine is faulty or failed.
2. The motherboard in the control panel has a fault and needs replacing.
Unless you are a DIY'er I suggest you call a serviceman

How do I clean the filter on the Novotronic W 310 Miele washing machine

Cleaning the fluff filter and pump
Check the fluff filter initially after 3 - 4 washes to ascertain how often it is likely to require cleaning. With normal cleaning approx. 2 litres of water run out.

If the drain outlet is clogged, more water will be retained in the machine (up to 25 litres).

Caution: if laundry has been washed at a high temperature,
water draining out of the machine will still be hot!

Take the (yellow) filter flap opener from behind the detergent drawer facia panel. Open the flap.

Place a dish under the drain fixture. Turn the fluff filter lid round 2 - 3
times. Do not take it right out.

With large volumes of water when the dish is full, screw the fluff filter back into position and empty the dish before repeating the procedure.

Once the flow of water ceases, remove the fluff filter completely and
clean it.
Remove any foreign bodies (e.g. buttons, coins, etc.) and fluff.
Turn the impeller by hand to check that it is free to rotate. Any foreign objects causing an obstruction should be removed.

Clean the inside of the fluff filter housing. Remove any deposits of lime scale and detergent or foreign bodies from the thread of the filter housing and filter unit (as these objects can cause a leakage
of water). Put the fluff filter back and screw it in firmly.
Cleaning and care

To clean the water inlet filters
The washing machine has two filters to protect the inlet valves. These filters should be checked every 6 months or so, or more often if there are frequent interruptions to the water supply.

To clean the filter in the union in the open end of the inlet hose:
First turn off the stopcock.
Unscrew the threaded union connecting the free end of the inlet hose to the stopcock.
Remove the rubber seal from the recess. Using pointed pliers, take hold of the plastic filter bar, remove the filter and clean.

Put the filter and seal back in the reverse order and reconnect the
hose. Turn on the stopcock and check the connection is watertight.
Inspect the inlet hose which is subjected to high pressure while the machine is in operation. The hose should be replaced if there are small cracks in the surface, or if it has been otherwise damaged.

If replacing the inlet hose only use a hose able to withstand pressure up to 70 bar. Miele's own hoses meet this requirement.

To clean the filter in the water inlet valve:
Using pliers, carefully loosen the ribbed plastic nut on the inlet valve,
and unscrew.
Use water pump pliers to withdraw the plastic filter by the bar.
Clean, put back and secure.
The two filters must be put back in place after cleaning.

My simpson ezi sensor will not fill on wash cycle, the water enters very slowly

Check the pressure on the incoming water pipe (make sure stopcock/isolation valve) fully open then check that valve opening fully (this may be able to be removed) will be one or the other :)

Dishwasher is not working. The red 'Inlet/Outlet' light is flashing. Any advice please Thank you

There are a few things you can check. First set the washer cycle to Stop and turn off the unit. Next make sure that the stopcock on the inlet valve is fully open. Then close the stopcock/valve and disconnect the inlet hose. Remove the seal and then the filter (use pliers). Clean this inlet filter with running water. Replace the filter and seal and reconnect the hose to your inlet valve. Reopen the valve (check for leaks from threading problems). Make sure the valve is fully open when you try to restart the dishwasher. Check your incoming water pressure at this valve as well - low water pressure will also trigger the inlet error. Make sure the hose is not kinked.

If the washer did any parts of the wash cycle, then try cleaning the outlet side of the system.
Next clean the combination filter, drain pump and non-return valve. For the filter (near the lower spray arm), turn the handle counter-clockwise. Lift the filter out and remove all debris. Rinse under running water and use a nylon bristle brush to get stubborn stuff out. Pull back the yellow clip and open the filter flap. Clean the underside of the filter with running water again.

Remove the water from the cabinet with any container that works. Raise the locking clamp for the non-return valve. Lift up the valve and clean it under running water. Carefully check the drain pump (now visible with the non-return valve out) and remove any debris. Sharp objects may be present. Move the impellers and completely check the pump for foreign objects and remove them. Replace the non-return valve and secure it with the locking clamp. Replace the combination filter so that it lays flat and secure it with the handle. Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked.

If neither of these solve the problem, you need to call for service. The Waterproof safety system has been triggered and water got into the electrical system of the unit.

Many Miele appliance manuals are here: . The manual for the Miele G641 is here: . See this manual for pictures of the filters and drain pump area.

I hope this helps.

Ihave stopcocks in various places about 5or 6 in all they are all stuck and i am unable to shift them.I need an urgent solution as I want shut the 1. mains supply,2.change the boiler 3.change taps etc.Pls....

If the stopcocks are gate type valves there may be a nut holding on the knob/hand wheel on to the spindle on the stopcock, you could try using a socket wrench to get more torque on the shaft. Don't put excessive force on the wrench or you may wring the shaft as sometimes this is actually narrower inside the stopcock than the section you can see externally.
If you can get your hands on a heat gun you could also try heating the section of the stopcock which surrounds the shaft for about a minute. This may expand it enough to free it. You just have to be extremely careful if you are using it in a confined space close to timber, plastic, gas or other combustible material or you could end up starting a fire. You could shield the wall behind the valve with a piece of floor tile.

I have a bad tick/knock in my 05 dodge3500 changed lots of sensors and pump but no change. just put engine in this summer bought used off junk yard. engine also lacks power. can anyone please help me out....

Hopefully all you are hearing are poor valve lifters. As the lifters wear they will not hold oil pressure as they should and create a ticking noise as the valves open and close. With luck you can just change out the lifters and bee in good shape with the engine power too. I have seen situation where as the lifters have collapsed so the valves would not open fully causing the engine to run poorly. Being a used engine I'd run a compression test. This will give you a good feel for the condition of the engine. If the compression readings are low it will surely effect the engine's runability.
I hope this may have helped,

''poor pressure hot water only on new 531 series''

If you remove the supply line from the faucet and open the valve into a bucket, do you have adequate pressure? If you do, you will need to remove the hot water stem to see if something washed up into the faucet when you first turned the water on.
