Miele WS5426 Heater Element Replacement

Hi Guys - How do I replace the 2 heater elements in a Miele WS5426 Commercial washing machine. They appear to be held with spring (star) clips as opposed to with a single nut as most washer elements are? - Terry

On the WS 5426 the elements are mounted at the bottom of the drum of the accessed by opening the front of the machine.

Removal of the elements will involve destroying the rubber seal and can be done by cutting two vertical slots with a sharp knife in the seal and then pulling hard on the seal with a pair of pliers. It is not necessary to remove the spring clamps or drip shield but it will aid access to the seal.

SOURCE: Hi, i have owned my Hotpoint Ultima WT960 washer

I would concur that is probably the element and or thermistor attached to the element that is causing the problem.
Before commiting to replace, try disconnecting the supply to the element and trying it again, if it does not trip, then this proves element and or thermistor faulty.

Only way to be sure if it is the heater, is to test it with a meter.
They are a fairly straightforward job to replace
Please rate my solution.

If it works fine with the heater off then i would say that fault appears to be element..the readings you get seem okay, put you meter onto megs and check, with wires off if you get electrical leakage between live and earth...Body....of element, it could be element is heating with no water in machine causing it to burn out..this is a problem with this machine...Wish you well

remove the back, the element is at the bottom of the drum tis maybe a split cabinet, where the lid comes off the it splits down the middle like cracking an egg, loads of screws, hard to describe, also 2 at bottom at the side in the middle, behind 2 plastic lugs, when removed the back half of the cabinet comes away, not an easy job until you have seen it done if you really are stuck try and send me an e mail address and i will send you a drawing, then you will see its easy, i am an engineer of 20 years and done loads, its easy job to do once you know how to split the cabinet

Have a Miele 1612 washer whose heater element comes on during any cold only program. As we are off-grid, any unnescesary power useage is unacceptable. Is there something I can reset, or do I just remo


Hi Ed ..
The following is from the Miele handbook and would indicate that the machine can have the water temperature adjusted...... However I suggest that by merely disconnecting/removing the element
the machine's temperature sensors would not allow the machine to work..
A compromise may be to select the lowest wash temperature (ie 30c) This is better than cold water for detergent economy and effectiveness, and machine life.. I understand your situation.
Good luck

Tap water line (cold water) The tap water connection is established using the inlet hose with the blue marking. If the washer is connected to this line only, the appliance will need to be reprogrammed to cold water fill only. Please contact your Miele dealer or Miele Customer Service for reprogramming instructions.

Novotronic w844 when washing large load sticks at rinse program and has to be restarted often several times


It sounds like your heater element is not working. If the washer doesn't reach the desired temperature it will not advance to the next level. Try to do a cold wash and see if it completes the cycle if it does you need to replace the heater element.

Miele Washer problem Novotronic Premier


Main wash light flashing is a heating fault. You either have a faulty temp sensor (NTC) or the pressure chamber has blocked and the heater element has popped.
