Miele w2203 wont stop spinning

Hi all

my w2203 (3 yrs old) has gone mental... It wont stop spinning at max speed. have turned off at the mains, let it have a little rest, tried pessing all of the buttons at the same time (to see if there was some secret reset code...), .Emptied filter, some minor debris and the equiv of a large cup of water came out, but when you turn it back on it still jumps straight back into max spin.

Any ideas???

thanks in advance

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Your filter of the water inlet valve is accessible outside the machine; it is at the water entry point. Close your faucet & check this out; this gets clogged often.

Hope i am helpful...... Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

As a temporary measure you might consider identifying the wires and jury rigging two valves to run together to increase the flow (of course you will lose pre-wash by doing this)

SOURCE: Washing Machine on the blink mainly due to no spin/drain cycle wo

check your drain filter, get a wet vac and vacuum the water out, then open the drain plug at bottom and try to vacuum the drain to clear out debris......then turn on and test washer if it fills and drains if it fills with water and doesn't drain then your drain pump is defective........get your model number and source for a pump motor.................................

if it doesn't fill with water then your water fill switch is defective...............source for parts..............

if this helps out anyone a feed back would be good..........

SOURCE: Miele Novotronic W 833 won't drain

Had exactly the same problem on our 12 year old Miele - thought it was a bit disappointing that the machine had only lasted 12 years! Took the filter out and cleaned it, did a 95 degree wash, ran a descale wash - still had the red light flashing. Then I removed the drain hose and found that it was completely blocked at the U-bend. Flushed it out and now it's perfect again.

Excessively noisy when it spins. The faster the spin the noisier it gets.

Sounds like the Drum Bearings are gone they are **** on Hotpoint..Could be quite expensive depending on age...3 years old you will need a half drum complete with Bearings approx cost £80 plus labour....if more than 4 yrs old then perhaps bearing kit plus 3 hrs labour....Hotpoint give a FREE 5 yrs parts warranty however CALL CHARGE....£105 approx parts are free.....You need to ecide if you should fix or just buy a new one........

Miele premier novo, the main wash light flashing

Main wash is a fault indicator. The is a problem within the heater circuit, NTC, element, relay or loose wire. You will have to open front and check.
Remove 3 screw around dispenser and 3 10mm bolt around door. disconnect hose by drain pump and front of machine will open like a door.

My miele touchtronic w 3039 will not start. the waterproof system activated keeps blinking in the display window with the start button blinking as well and beeping


Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.

You may just have over sudded the unit by using the wrong detergent or too much. After you have the unit running again test the unit with no detergent and see if you activate the waterproof system again. if you do then you will probably have a split hose inside the unit.

Need to know where to put washing liquid in my Miele G646 SC

Hi most washing liquids go direct inside the machine with your washing, if your using liquid there should be a small liquid device with the bottle that you also use to measure the amount of liquid and place direct into the machine drum.

Hi my washing machine wont stop running when the cycle ends - I have to pull the plub at the mains

Reason for taking a long time spinning is that it might have an uneven load. The wrong number of bath towels, for instance will mean it takes 3 or 4 tries at getting the spin right before it can spin them at the correct speed. An unbalanced load doesn't do the machine any good either.
After this wash has finished try it on something a lot lighter- say a duvet cover only with a couple of pillowcases. If that takes a long time too then the trouble is with the machine.

Looks like your "programmer" has stopped on the "spin cycle".
Could be a sensor has gone.
But everything points to the "little drive" in the programmer.
You could try "Manually Rotating The Selector Round a Few Times"
(This could free something off)
If a new "programmer" is needed, This could be more expensive than a new machine.

If the machine is under a year old it will still be under guarantee. If it is slightly over the year, but under 18 months old you still have a good case to go back to the manufacturer and get them to fix it.

Whirlpool frontload duet washer F 6 problem

hello cjkcp
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your washer (now 4 yrs old) occasionally stops mid cycle flashing F 6 code. Is this something we can fix or do I have to call a repair man?

F/06 Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Wire Harness

I believe this needs a hands on tech to daignose this. Unless you feel you undrstand the problem your self?

Thank you for using our service for advice.

My maytag neptune front-load washer starts the spin cycle in one direction for several revolutions, stops, then does the same thing in the opposite direction, never getting to full spin speed. It does...

does the door lock indicator come on if not you probably have a bad main board and door lock assembly which MT lost a class action lawsuit over about 3 yrs ago
