Try turning the machine on its side, undo the bottom and check that the polystyrene float (attached to a switch) is not somehow jammed. This float cuts off the water if the machine leaks internally, and produces the symptoms you describe. It's a really good machine so don't throw it away!!

If that still doesn't help then it might also be the motor brushes, which produce similar symptoms - if your machine starts to fill but then flashes and just drains again, it's almost certainly the brushes. This might be the case after you check the float problem.

    Inlet light can also flash if insufficient water comes in -- can mean a failed solenoid valve or lack of power to the main solenoid. Try half- filling using a hose (into the powder dispenser) immediately the red light starts flashing. If machine proceeds with the programme then clearly the main wash solenoid is either not working properly or isn't getting a signal from the circuit board.

Possible that this error can be due to the INLET or the DRAIN being clogged or is not functioning. Remove and clean the filter to both the inlet and drain.

Clogged by something.
Could be a coin.
Use to have large coin when i was young and forgot remove from my jeans. So mum made me repair that every time. In that case filter clean, but coin bloking filter inlet.
Not necesarily coin in your case.
never buy these deals over Ebay my advice.
If you have the machine already then this is first to look for.

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

Water inlet flashing ,not filling, Miele Novotronic W939 Super


Hi Paul,

We currently have a similar problem with our W939. I took the front panel off and found that the Miele service folks had incorrectly routed the ribbon cable linking the fill level sensor with the control panel and severed one of the wires. The machine was reporting a series of errors, one of which was an outlet blockage and the discharge pump was not working.

The relevance to you is that your problem may be a loose or broken wire or corroded terminal.

Miele washing machine


All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
