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.

SOURCE: Miele W1926 water light flashes

That happened to me too. If the machine is a few years old and the hoses are not kinked it's possible the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. On this machine there is a triple cold water valve and a single hot water valve. Mine needed the triple valve and it is about $300 if I remember. Check to see if it's the cold or hot water valve by looking at the water filling through the soap drawer for cold or hot water cycles. When the valves go bad they run but the output is very low which causes the light to flash because it can't fill to the correct level.

You can get to the valves by taking off the top. If you don't feel comfortable working on your own machine have a professional do it.

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........

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.

On my two stage snow blower--main auger stops turning .

Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn

Deck speed up to uncredible speed and wont stop

You both have issues with your drive circuits. There is no easy fix for this. You will have to take it to a repair center to have them serviced.

There are 4 main Integrated Circuits that control the speed/drive and any one or all may have gone bad. We are seeing this alot with these units now.

Wish I could be of more help.
