Question about Miele Novotronic Premier 500 Front Load Washer
On a cotton programme, in main wash, does the water level get very high? Like as in past half way up the door??
Does then the drain pump kick in?
Of so the pressure chamber in the machine is blocked.
Turn off the mains to the appliance.
You will need to remove the front of the machine to get to this.
The presssure chamber is connected to a small diameter black rubber tube which either goes to a electronic switch on the front board or to a mechanical pressure switch in the machine.
The chamber is located next to the heating element, middle bottom part of the front plate of the outer drum. It's an odd shaped white plastic container held in via a 8mm bolt and a seal.
Remove the bolt, grab hold of the chamber and give it a gentle pull.
Once you have the chamber in your hand, you should be able to run water from the larger hole which was pushed into the seal in the drum so it runs out of the smaller hole which was attached to the small black rubber tube.
If not it's blocked.
Replace it or clean it out.
Spray a small amount of WD40 onto the seal before pushing it back home, it will help it pop back in.
You may be unlucky and it's taken out the heater element and messed up the setting for the electronic pressure switch.
You will know this by a very, low water level (like hardly none) and after about 90 mins the main wash light will flash.
Post back if you have any more info.
