Question about Miele WT945 Front Load Washer / Dryer
I wonder if anyone out there can help!
I have a Miele WT945 washer dryer which does not spin. After the clothes have been washed and just before the spin cycle should start, the 'Water Inlet/Drain' light starts flashing and nothing happens. The machine still tumble drys - although not ideal if the clothes are too wet in the first place!
I have checked the manual and cleaned the various filters, inc. the fluff filter & pump (at the front of the machine) and the small filter in the inlet hose (the one at the stopcock end).
However, I cannot locate the 2nd filter in the 'water inlet valve' - I have pulled the machine out and looked behind and cannot see where it is.
The manual says:
"using pliers, carefully loosen the ribbed plastic nut on the inlet valve and unscrew.
Then, use water pump pliers to withdraw the plastic filter by the bar. Clean, put back and secure"
I cannot find this for the life of me !
I would really appreciate any help !
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.
