Hi,

Either your motor brushes are worn,the connection to the motor maybe defective or the tachogenerator is defective.

you would need to remove the front panel and investigate the issue if you are confident to do this. without knowing the tricks to remove the front panel and access the motor brushes and tachogenerator you might be better off having a service call. Miele have their own service team and service agents depending on where you live.

Hope this helps.

Just purchased 2nd hand Miele novotronic w310. Does machine automatically stop? Cycle ends, anti crease light on and machine just tumbles clothes makes odd noise, then tumbles again. Is the normal?


NORMALLY WHEN A DRYER COMPLETES IT'S DRYING TIME IT WILL GO THROUGH A COOLING DOWN CYCLE,
DRYER WILL START TURNING WITH FAN ON ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN STOP, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD IT WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL UNIT HAS COOLED DOWN, HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING
GOOD LUCK

My miele wt945s takes in some water after final spin so clothes at bottom of the drum end up wet. Can I stop this happening


There is a problem with the programming of the control board if this is occurring.

All you can do is turn off the water to the machine at the end of the full cycle and then run the spin cycle again to dry out the clothes. Then no water can enter the wash drum.

Otherwise you would need to turn off the water each time before the spin cycle concluded and thus before the machine began adding water again.

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 .

Hi We have a miele condensor dryer. It is working fine except that you have to put clothes through twice to dry. It seems to cut short the drying process and then you need to put the machine back on...


The first thing you need to check is your vent system. If your dryer vent is clogged with lint, the dryer has a hard time expelling the moisture.
Then, if the vent is clean, try using a timed drying cycle instead of a sensor cycle. If your clothes get dry using the timed cycle, then you might have a sensor problem.
Also, make sure your wash machine is properly spinning out the clothes. I saw that once before where the customer thought the problem was with the dryer, but it ended up being their wash machine's ATC switch adding water at the end of the spin cycle.

Good luck!

No heat when drying


I have a Miele WT2780 where the fan motor stops spinning. This will stop the dryer from working even though the element heats up. The failure of the fan will not blow the air across the heating element and thus into the drum. New motors fitted are around £400 min. I am never going to buy another Miele - mine failed after 6yrs.

Another problem is the thermostat can trip. This is a small button inside the machine (TURN OFF MAINS ELECTRIC AND UNPLUG FROM WALL then remove the lid) on the right hand side of the alloy centre channel at the top. It has two wires connected to the switch and in the centre there is a small black button. Press it firmly and it will heat up again. If this keeps tripping then the air duct could be blocked with fluff. This is my next task as mine now trips more frequently so will post back here with instructions.
Update 12/10/16 - problem returned so dismantled top of air duct having removed the lid - tight torx screws - inside chamber was full of fluff. Removed and cleaned - all good now!.

Spin light flashhes spin does not work


The Miele W864 model will flash a warning light and will refuse to spin when it considers its load to be unstable....What I mean is... if you put a blanket in it and the blanket is on one side of the drum, the computer decides that if the machine spins, the centre fugal force or whatever they call it, the weight of the thing inside, will make the machine move about dangerously and will therefore not spin... its a safety feature. My spelling is shocking... I will look at the manual. Which says the load is unstable... more or less... waterlogged garments, like blankets can do this.... I normally just fill it with towels, and wash twice or three times because I wont get a good wash when overloaded.xx

My Miele Novotronic W 844 Washing Machine will not completely spin dry my clothes. They are soggy at the end of the wash cycle. Help please! (My machine's settings are in German.)


Hi there are 3 possible causes.
1. Out of balance load (drum is divide into 3 sections if weight i one section is greater then 1.25kg than another section will not spin)
2.Carbon brushes ( Normally good for at least 10 years)
3. Vent from drain pump blocked.(Vent left front side of soap drawer. Visible when drawer removed)

Clothes not drying - fan ok, heat ok


I just had a Miele tech fix this. There are several causes for this. One cause is a motor fault with the fan motor or a bad belt. Second issue is a blocked up condenser. Finally the issue is electronic and the electronic panel needs to be replaced. The electronic panel consists of small relays that can burn out.

My issue was the electronic panel.

To test a blocked up condenser, is to take the top panel off, and spin the fan motor (by hand). If you feel resistance, you have a clogged condenser which must be replaced (Always run 'Remove Fluff' cycle so this never happens after every dryer use).

To test the fan, take the connector off and 'carefully' connect to 220v to the fan motor (checking polarity). Only do this, after you reset the switch (found in the rectangle box in the middle of the Miele metalwork on top) and made sure the fan does not work automatically when a drying cycle is selected.

The most expensive repair is the eectronic module which costs £175 plus £99 Miele callout.
