The most common cause for this problem, is the Electro Magnetic Door lock, itself. The part may cost about $170, new. However, you can open the door manually, from the bottom side of the washer. Other causes may be a defective "push button switch," or drainage problem. In a drainage problem, water sitting inside washer, won't allow the user to open washer door, until the water is manually drained out. Good Luck.

Miele W701 drum stopped working


Hi, I have the same problem as you, same washing machine model, I suspect the problem lies with the electronic control box, the electrolytic capacitors probably dried up from old age and need replacing. The control box is behind the front large door / panel of the machine (not the drum door); in order to open the large door / panel you have to remove the two screws near the detergent drawer, three screws near the entrance of the drum (the three that are covered when the door is closed, and with a screwdriver underneath the machine, right under the wash filter door, there is a release mechanism, push it down to open the door (there are hinges on the other side, so it won't fall off). The control box is the white box held with two screws you can see at 2:23 in the following video I found on YouTube (it's the first video that comes up on Google when you search for Miele W701, in this case it's an Italian model machine, but internally it's the same thing everywhere). Electrolytic capacitors have acid inside and it's perfectly normal for them to dry up over time, lasting twenty years is very good, but all of them dry up sooner or later. The pcb is fairly large and the circuits well spaced and thus it should be fairly doable for anyone with a soldering iron and proper solder (and soldering skills) to replace the electrolytic capacitors with new ones of the same rating (the rating is written on each capacitor). Or you can try to see if you can find a replacement control box from Miele. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3nnSUxQWJI Cheers.

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...

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.

We have a Miele W701. We just finished a load of laundry and the door won't click open. The electricity is on and I cannot see any other problem with the machine.

Miele W 765 automatic washing machine Will not spin dry. All else is good.


Hi,

Either your motor brushes are worn,the connection to the motor maybe defective or the tachogenerator is defective.

you would need to remove the front panel and investigate the issue if you are confident to do this. without knowing the tricks to remove the front panel and access the motor brushes and tachogenerator you might be better off having a service call. Miele have their own service team and service agents depending on where you live.

Hope this helps.

How do I take my Miele S251i apart to be able to chenge the powercord?


HOW TO OPEN MIELE 251 VACCUUM: 1-Unplug from wall and disconnect power cord 2-Remove black switch panel at back of top panel: A-Use Phillips screwdriver, remove two silver screws visible between back of hinged top door and front of black switch panel
B-Push back of the panel down while pushing it forward (towards front of machine). There are two plastic notches and clips which are tightly fit together that you need to separate.
Once it releases, push it a bit more towards the front of the machine and lift off panel. It has wires connecting it to the main body so it will not remove completely.
C-Be careful not to lose the springs that simply sit inside of two plastic channels, one under each of the two switches. These are required for your witches to operate properly.
3-Locate screw at bottom of deep rectangular hole now revealed (under former location of black switch panels). Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 4-Open hinged top panel. Locate two silver screws, one on each side of main housing. Unscrew using Phillips screwdriver. 5-This will let you lift off the whole top assembly, door and main housing, revealing the plastic chassis and the motor unit within.
You now have access to the motor, wiring connector harnesses, circuit board and the cord reel.
