SOURCE: Hello, our miele w5040 is about 6 years old and we

if you mostly use lower temperature washes a bacterial mould builds up inside the machine. it can be seen as a black residue in the soap dispenser drawer and in the folds of the rubber door seal. a grey sludge also builds up on the inside of the wash drum and the drain filter. doing at least one hot wash ( above 60 C ) a week can stop this happening.

SOURCE: Miele Dishwasher does not start


F51 fault is more than likely the heater relay is faulty but it could be your circulation pump is jammed up. if you are confident you can easily replace the replace the relay if it is faulty. you would need to put a meter across the terminals. if it is ok then the pump is blocked. if you are not confident you would require a service call. Miele have there own deadicated service team if you live in a metro area

hope this helps.

Hello. The problem you are having can be rectified with the new Miele FJM bags.

Also, if you have never taken your machine into a vacuum repair shop for an internal cleaning, please do so. J.

SOURCE: Miele CVA 4075 brew unit locked

Turn your machine off. Close the door. Depress <clear>, holding it down, press <on/off> then let go of both. Then press <clear> 3 times. On 3rd time, hold it until Service menu appears. Select <brew unit> then press left arrow to turn from <off> to <on>. Then press right arrow by <select> This will turn your brew unit drive to the correct position and you should be able to get your brew unit in/out and your waste container back in. Make sure to turn your machine off/on again to get out of Service Menu. I have a picture of how the wire needs to be inserted to get that back on. It's definitely not intuitive, but send another note with your email address and I can send the pics.

SOURCE: Miele Novotronic W 833 won't drain


if your washing machine drains into a spigot in the u bend under your sink you will probably find a blockage here. you need to remove the drain hose and have a look in the hole.

if not when you remove the fluff filter have a look in the hole and make sure the drain pump turns freely. you can also run a drain spin cycle with the fluff filter removed and make sure the drain pump is working.

Cannot unlock miele h399b oven

The temperature is too high in the oven , you need to wait till it cools down. If still not opens then either the PTC is bad or the lock itself is damaged.

My Miele 500 stovetop is locked, how do I unlock it?

just under the lock light you should be able to press and hold with your thumb for about 5-10 seconds and it will reset. You may need to place your thumb directly on the lock light or just below it and hold it to unlock it.
Hope this will help you. Good Luck.

Hi my door on the Miele W487 is not closing, the latch wont hold. Any suggestions?

Hi there - mmm the door locking mechanism may be crook - the only other possbity is the mechanical latch could be faulty - give this a quick try close & hold the door in and initiate a cyle to see if it locks - if it locks then the latching device is busted which may or not be field serviceable.

Miele item #4747471 is the latch unit & #4842085 is a 220/240V door lock not sure about a 110/120V part number.

Can't seem to get heat My Miele dryer is 3 years old


if your condenser is blocked the airflow is restricted and can cause the thermostat at the rear of the unit behind the cover to create an open circuit. you would need to remove the rear cover and check with an electrical meter to see if the thermostat has resistance. it looks like a small round disc with a wire going to each side of it. you can order a replacement thermostat from Miele but remember to also clen your condenser before running it again.

Hope this helps.

Miele s314 red star-motor stopped working-on/off switch broken?

Most likely the problem is with the cord winder. This is the most common problem with Mieles. It is actually the most common problem with any vacuum with a cord winder. A Miele repair center should not change you to look at the vacuum and tell you what is wrong with it. The Red Star was a great model and if the powerhead is still in goood condition I would get the vacuum repaired. If it is the cordwinder they can usually be repaired and it should cost about $75.00. If you need a new cord winder this will cost about $150.00. The top piece can be pryed off, however if it feels like it is switching than it is not jammed.
