Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a 7 yr old Miele Novotronic W827 washing machine. When water enters the machine for a new wash it immediately comes out of the drain fixture in the bottom left hand side of the machine next to the fluff(drain) fillter. I have examined and cleaned the drain filter and screwed it in as far as it will go but still the water comes out of nthe drain fixture tube. Can you suggest the reason and a possible solution? Thanks Geoff

    If you have a compressor blow inside the drain pipe and check if it is obstructed inside. If is not the above you need to pen the machine and discover from where you get leak. It must be one of the water pipes not well in place or in need of replacement. Check also that is not the detergent drawer holes obstructed and the drawer leaking water from behind.

    The machine fixture should comprise a valve body mounted in a housing. The valve
    includes two inlets for connection to hot and cold water supplies and
    two outlets for connection to washing machine water supply hoses. You need to check all them and find where the leak is. If the leak is very small you can use clothes placed in strategic points, then run a cycle. In this way you do not endanger yourself inspecting the inside of machine with power on and cycling.

    Check also that is not the drain pump that is leaking. If it is the pump you will need to buy a kit (pump, pump seal, impeller) and replace it. If the problem is the pump do the following:
    Remove the old pump.

    Cut off the impeller with side cutters, the kit comes with a new impeller

    Pull off the old seal.

    Clean the pump shaft.

    Fit the new seal.

    Fit the new impeller.Push on as far as possible
    by hand.Turn the pump with impeller up.Place on a hard surface.Tap the new
    impeller with a hammer gentlyuntil it is fully on. if you have a rubber hammer use the rubber one.

Miele novotronic w1512 - the wash wash accidently started by my daughter 'cottons @60 degrees'. The machine is fully loaded with darks and they will be ruined if the wash continues. I have tried to stop...

in the user manual there should be a section on advancing the programs on and or in the section of trouble shooting I would take the water outlet pipe and lay it near the ground to drain the water out into a bucket and then as the machine is not plugged in you should be able to open the door in a not on position eric

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.

You have a bad water inlet valve. There is probably silt in it and it is stuck partially open. Replace the valve and you'll be back in business. Hope this helps!

Miele Washing Machine - Novotronic W827

Give the door a firm push shut (even if it appears shut already). There is a safety mechanism that stops the door opening when drum is turning and it gets its knickers in a twist sometimes. Happened to me twice in the last 5 years and can never remember how to fix so end up ringing Miele support who are always helpful. Next time I'll look here first!
