Hi Paul,

We currently have a similar problem with our W939. I took the front panel off and found that the Miele service folks had incorrectly routed the ribbon cable linking the fill level sensor with the control panel and severed one of the wires. The machine was reporting a series of errors, one of which was an outlet blockage and the discharge pump was not working.

The relevance to you is that your problem may be a loose or broken wire or corroded terminal.

Miele novotronic w145 s spullen light flashes


Possible that this error can be due to the INLET or the DRAIN being clogged or is not functioning. Remove and clean the filter to both the inlet and drain.

Miele W1926 check inlet light flashes at the end of rinse fill. When the fill ends, the light goes off. I cleaned all 4 filters at the intake hoses. The problem still exists. What does it mean?

I haven't used the miele novotronic washing machine in our other house for a year and noticed when i tried today the water was only dribbling into soap tray-thereis enough pressure in water feed so feel...


hi,

More than likely the problem is actually the inlet valve which only partly allows water to flow into the unit. you would need to remove the lid and replace the inlet valve which is on the left hand back corner of the unit. Valves are available from Miele

Inlet blockage red light flashing


Try turning the machine on its side, undo the bottom and check that the polystyrene float (attached to a switch) is not somehow jammed. This float cuts off the water if the machine leaks internally, and produces the symptoms you describe. It's a really good machine so don't throw it away!!

If that still doesn't help then it might also be the motor brushes, which produce similar symptoms - if your machine starts to fill but then flashes and just drains again, it's almost certainly the brushes. This might be the case after you check the float problem.

Miele W1926 water light flashes


That happened to me too. If the machine is a few years old and the hoses are not kinked it's possible the water inlet valve needs to be replaced. On this machine there is a triple cold water valve and a single hot water valve. Mine needed the triple valve and it is about $300 if I remember. Check to see if it's the cold or hot water valve by looking at the water filling through the soap drawer for cold or hot water cycles. When the valves go bad they run but the output is very low which causes the light to flash because it can't fill to the correct level.

You can get to the valves by taking off the top. If you don't feel comfortable working on your own machine have a professional do it.

Miele washing machine


All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
