The most common cause for this problem, is the Electro Magnetic Door lock, itself. The part may cost about $170, new. However, you can open the door manually, from the bottom side of the washer. Other causes may be a defective "push button switch," or drainage problem. In a drainage problem, water sitting inside washer, won't allow the user to open washer door, until the water is manually drained out. Good Luck.

SOURCE: require operating instructions in english

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry, this forum is not able to supply any type of manual, installation instructions, electrical or schematic diagrams direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home and from all over the world, with experience of addressing problems and giving guidance for free on the web ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Miele W701 drum stopped working

Hi, I have the same problem as you, same washing machine model, I suspect the problem lies with the electronic control box, the electrolytic capacitors probably dried up from old age and need replacing. The control box is behind the front large door / panel of the machine (not the drum door); in order to open the large door / panel you have to remove the two screws near the detergent drawer, three screws near the entrance of the drum (the three that are covered when the door is closed, and with a screwdriver underneath the machine, right under the wash filter door, there is a release mechanism, push it down to open the door (there are hinges on the other side, so it won't fall off). The control box is the white box held with two screws you can see at 2:23 in the following video I found on YouTube (it's the first video that comes up on Google when you search for Miele W701, in this case it's an Italian model machine, but internally it's the same thing everywhere). Electrolytic capacitors have acid inside and it's perfectly normal for them to dry up over time, lasting twenty years is very good, but all of them dry up sooner or later. The pcb is fairly large and the circuits well spaced and thus it should be fairly doable for anyone with a soldering iron and proper solder (and soldering skills) to replace the electrolytic capacitors with new ones of the same rating (the rating is written on each capacitor). Or you can try to see if you can find a replacement control box from Miele. Cheers.

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.
