How to fix Miele WT2670. No issue in doing the wash, but when it comes to drying, it seems to be stuck in the last 12 minutes . Then eventually the machine stops, but the clothes are still not dry


perhaps the timer has gone bad many times the washer does not spin out as fast as they should thereby making the dryer work even harder to dry the clothe completely .

Novotronic washer w1918 jumps violently when transitioning from main wash to rinse 1-2 with 21 minutes to go to end of wash cycle


If the problem is consistent, FIRST check to make your machine is level. Also try cleaning the machine out with no clothes in it using white vinegar on a hot wash. If you're having a problem with high speed spin with NO load in it, it could be shaft/bearing related which would probably be too expensive to fix. Otherwise you could simply just be adding loads incorrectly or overloading it.

My Maytag Neptune FAV6800 washing machine overfills on the rinse cycle. Pulling the electric power does not stop the water flow. I have to turn off the water at the faucet feeding the hose. It seems to...


If you pull the power to the machine and water continues to flow then the water inlet valve is stuck open. You will need to replace the water inlet valve. The Service manual will step you thru the process.


FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service Manual for reference. Sears Parts Direct for reference.


The water inlet valve is p/n 25001046 Substitution: 12002242 Water valve shop around for best price.


Is this Cold water inlet valve issue? If so and you only do Cold water wash/rinse like me you could switch the fill hose connections from hot to cold to hot at the faucet. Turn the hot water faucet valve off and select Warm/Warm temp selection and you will be filling with cold water wash/rinse. Maybe that would hold you over until you replace the Water Inlet Valve assembly.


You can check out your pressure switch transitions as I had this poster do for his issue at this link http://www.fixya.com/support/t5471295-washer_fills_water_begins_agitate_but


His issue seems to be a definite stuck pressure switch not water inlet valve such as yours. Check to make sure your pressure switch is OK by watching the fill point transitions as I mention in the post.


If you machine is a series 12 or above the Low and Mid fill pressure switch transitions will toggle at the same time. Series 12 and above us a 2 level pressure switch. Series 10 and 1 use a 3 level pressure switch.


Good Luck………….. D*ick

The motor on my Miele washing machine is running constantly even when not set on a programme. The water seems to empty out as soon as it comes in. I Have to release the Stop /Start button to stop motor.


what motor do you mean the motor that spins the drum or the pump motor if its the pump motor i would check the programmer as it tells the pump when to run, on a rinse water evacuate cycle it would seem that you are stuck in that mode call a loacl engineer

There's no delay start on our new Miele W3740 washing machine. Can we use an electronic timer in the plug socket to delay the program start (cheap night-time use of electricity)? Thank you. Gerald


yes you could use a delay plug if it dont over rate the plug,,,check how many watts your washer pulls and how many watts the delay plug can handel first,,,if its more than the delay plug can take dont try it or you may just have a fire on your hands,,
even with cheap electricity is it worth that?

My front load washing machine shakes violently in the final spin cycle. It is brand new and sits level.


Check the Vibration damper rods to be sure that...
1. They are there and mount is solid.
2. If they are broken in 1/2.
3. The plastic knuckle mounts are not missing/broken.
4. There is oil in the shock absorber/spring section of the rods.

Also - there are suspension springs on the bottom of the tub that could be broken and/or missing.

Replace/repair as necessary.

Also - be sure the drum locking (transit) pins were removed by the installer.

Transit struts need taking off a miele w3748


The struts are just turned about 90 degrees and pulled from the rear - make sure you keep these in case the machine is to be moved - they need to be reinstalled
