I bought an older 842 washing machine. It has been sitting for awhile so I cleaned out the filter. At first I did not get the plug back in and water ran out and the inlet fault light came on.


Sounds like either the small filter at the inlet solenoid valve or the solenoid valve itself. Either way you are going to have to get inside the machine to get to the inlet valve.If no water is coming through the soap draw then it can really only be at the valve OR the inlet to the soapdraw is blocked (again - need to take off the top to look) Make sure power is disconnected before you do. The flashing red light after 30 seconds or so is just letting you know that the drum has not reached certain water level in the appropriate amount of time.
Good luck

Check drain flashing and check inlet on my meile w864 washing machine


How old is the washing machine? You have likely water inlet valve solenoids that are inoperative.

Flashing rinse light on meile 864 and anti crease/ finish light comes on.


If you are sure that you made no mistake in mounting the brush cap back on the motor (check the four pins), most probably the electronic EL200 is defective.
This happens often in this type of machine when the shock absorbers are worn (after 10 years).
You can check this by measuring the continuity in the little 6.3A fuse that is on the EL200. If it is blown, you may get the PCB repaired for 55 Euros + shipping (see link below). You also have to replace the shock absorbers (32 Euros) to get a full year guarantee.

Rinse Light flashes on Miele W829 novotronic


Remove all the load and try to move the drum manually clockwise and anti clockwise. If you notice any friction check the motor separately and the agitator assembly separately.
It could be due to alignment shift causing a wobbly motion or a failure of the bearings.

Machine fills with water, then the drum wont turn at all - just lots of little clicks - eventually all the lights that are on flash - just got a red flashing light on the start/pause button when we tried...


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Try and check the inlet valve or replace , check this link:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

HOTPOINT WASHER DRYER WD440G


That means that the machine detected a problem at a certain point of the cycle and stopped.

If the machine stops when filling check the inlet valve and the water supply.

If it stops because ofervilling check the water level switch.

If it stops when the cycle is hot water only , then check the heating element.

If it stops when draining, then inspect drain filter, drain pump , and drain hose. You access the drain hose removing a panel at the front side of the machine.

If it stops when motor is supposed to spin faster (rinse) then it is motor control unit or motor coupler.

If it is none of the above, then it is a defective control board.

Miele Novotronic W 844 Washing Machine


Pete,
When I had this problem I went along the entire water inlet route and verified flow. Water flow entering the soap dispenser tray should be very robust & audible; if not, you have a flow restriction or low pressure, flashing red light or not.

I'm stating the obvious because I actually missed some filter elements the first time I tried. Disconnect inlet hose at plastic fitting on chassis and verify your flow there. Then look inside the inlet barb and use a small pair of channel lock or lineman's pliers to grasp the tab on the inverted "basket" and pull it straight out. These filters can be packed full of sand and small gravel inside--they were in my case.

Good luck,
Adam
