Question about Miele Washing Machines
I have a miele W1113 washing machine. That I bought it used 4 years ago. Last year we loaded the machine with extra weight and got an error. (Don't remember which one). Since that day, we get a F53 error code at some point during the wash cycle. I go into service mode, erase the error code, take out a bit of clothes and restart the washing cycle and it works. This routine lasted for one year. Last week, even with 1/3 of capacity the machine now throws the F53 error. And now I think either I will buy a new one or try to repair it. The symptoms are F53 at some point during the wash cycle (more often right at the beginning refusing to start moving but only letting water enter) I can go in service mode and test successfully the spin up until maximum speed with no problem and the normal rotating drive) (even with exactly the same clothes that caused the error in the first place [This is the most puzzling thing to me]) During the previous year and right before throwing the F53 error I would notice the drum having difficulty rotating and hearing some clicks and instantaneous fast revolving (almost like trying to catch up for not rots paying in the first place) I read on the Web that sometimes it is simple sometimes it is not. What is your guess? This miele model is USA and Mexico but I love in Europe and this model is rare around here! Thanks

SOURCE: washer make a clicking noise
Zoobs, you could have something stuck under the agitator. The agitator will pull straight off. Grip it on each side and pull up hard, but don't hit yourself in the face. If that don't work, try slipping a belt under it and pull. Check for something caught under it. Another possibility could be the nylon suspension rod socket supports in the back. They will make a noise during agitation if they are dry. Put a little 3 in 1 oil to quite them down. Take the front panel off and check the pulley and belt, see if anything is out of whack. I also often find the motor support hitting the bottom panel during agitation making noise. Take the front panel off and observe during agitation. See if the support is striking the bottom. If so, just bend the bottom panel down. Catriver..post back.

this is not 100% diagnosis as can't listen to noise but fault may be bearing lip seal disintegrating which is a serious fault and if im right then bearing will shortly go as well. reason it is noisy during start is that seal is dry and gets wet when full of water

SOURCE: Shows "LE" in display.
Machine has a bad motor or "stator" on this machine. It is a direct drive winding on the back of the machine. Remove the back panel, the one bolt removes the rotor then you will see the stator winding, replace it and your good to go.

if when in the wash cycle the tub spins then the brake in the cluch assembly is worn and to be replaced. this holds the tub from moving when in the wash cycle. thanks tallpaul

pvatki, I am a licensed electrician and the NEC (national electrical code) does not require a clothes washer to be on a ground fault circuit interrupter. Replacing your gfci with a standard duplex receptacle will fix the problem you are having.
