Question about Miele Touchtronic W1213 Front Load Washer

3 Answers

Miele My W1215 Miele washer machine is oversudded and will not open. The drain and intake faults light up when I turn on the machine and I can't open the door. Although the oversud fault is not on, the m,achine is very oversudded and I don't know what to do. I have opened the lint emptying tray yet it does not help.

Clean the drain by opening the door on the bottum left.
Use the yellow plastic thingy in the front of the soap drawer to do it.

You can open the machine door by pulling the yellow tag in the bottom door.
Drain the water through the filter, clean the filter and close.

Then unplug the machine and tilt it forward by about 1 foot until you see water coming out of the bottom (put towel on floor).

Plug back in and voila!

I do think that this machine is a major pain. No spin cycle and this kind of stuff to go through. Anyone want to buy mine?

The water inlet and drain light are flashing along with the buzzer going on my W1213 front loader.I have cleared some stuff out of the outlet at the front of the machine, bottom left. It is still buzzing. Do I need to call a technician or is there something else I can do first

Hope the machine is off for some time. Power off the wall. Take out the rear drain hose of the machine from the wall standpipe and drain out the water, there should be much. The door will then open, dont force it.

You should use front loading powder, for front loaders, the ordinary saop would sud, problems. Be sure to fit the rear hose at the same height, not too deep into the standpipe.

I have a Miele W1215 washer that died during mid cycle with no power and it looks like it is getting power to the machine, but control board doesn't lite up and will not open door.


YouFixit in Europe does a complete overhaul on this board for less than 100 Euros. See Miele Repair ELP150 / ELP152 / ELP153 / EL154. This also prevents some other issues with this board from happening in the future.

Miele W1213 intake, drain and 3 - - - faults


Have had this since 2007 or 2008. Pain in the backside.
Fixed it by:
Cleaning drain.
Unplugging from power.
Tilting forward to drain water for 1-2 mins.
Made sure that the clear plastic light ***** in the rubber opening which located at the top was tight as it tends to get loose if you have an off-balance load.
Plugged power back in.
Boom, she started up.

This is a great washer/dryer, but it's expensive to fix if you need a repairman and it's a bit of voodoo if you need to do the above.

No Power lights, anything, on a Miele W1213 washer.


make sure the door is closed properly and push it hard as this completes the light circuit on the display and then allows the unit to work.

Miele W1215 stopped working


It means the electronics board that controls the machine has shorted out and must be replaced. Expensive if not under warranty--at least $500 for the board, plus labor. Same thing happened to mine, after 14 months of use. Am arguing with Miele to get them to pay for it, shouldn't have to completely replace the controls of the machine after such a short time.

Miele touchtronic 1113 washer


There is a float switch in a pan under the machine. This pan is probably full and the float switch is causing the Intake & Drain fault signal. You can lean the machine over to towards the front to partially drain the pan. Put a towel down to catch the water. When you put the machine level again the fault lights should be out. The real question is where did the water come from. You can easily remove the top (4 screws, 1 on each side behind the little plastic caps and 1 on each side of the back. Torx heads) and look down inside while you start the cycle. Look for leaks.
Good Luck,
Dan

Front lower left corner has an access door.  Pry the access door open.  Inside you will find a yellow tab that will open the machine glass bubble door. Below the yellow tab is a cca. 2.5 inch screw-in plug.  Place a pan in front of the machine and unscrew to plug.  Water will drain out of the machine.  With the plug removed, tilt the machine forward past 45 degrees until all water has drained out.  This will reset the washer.  Insert the screw-in plug.

Both the intake and drain lights are flashing


There are several simple solutions, one is reading the instruction manual. Check Intake: is any water entering? is it slow? This machine filters debris from the supply water so check the water intake filter. It is inside the end of the intake hose end against the home. Rinse it clean.
Drain: The same fault appears if the drain is clogged. Check if the lint trap is perfectly clean. Check the impeller (a set of fan blades) behind it spins freely. If buttons or coins get in there they can break off the fan blades and you can't drain water. Check the end of the drain hose if it drains. put it into a bucket or tub basin to observe how strong it pumps. Call Miele if these tips don't work. Be at the machine with Model and Serial number ready.
