Question about Miele W310 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Leak from Novatronic W310

After 5 years of trouble free service my Miele Novatronic W310 has developed a leak. The water is grey with evidence of detergent so I am presuming it is discharge water. The drum filter is clear and there is no evidence of leakage from either the door or the discharge pipework.
The unit was recently in transport due to a house move and I am not sure that the transport rods were fitted correctly.
Any ideas?

Bit the bullet and stripped out the covers from the unit so as to observe where the leak was coming from. Ran m/c on a basic quick wash (be careful, exposed live electrical terminals!!!) and noticed that water came from the detergent drawer for a second or two.
Stripped out detergent drawer housing and found that the large discharge pipe underneath was very blocked with black/white residue. Presume that this had been dislodged from the walls of the pipework during the house move.Removed residue and reassembled unit & ran, OK.
Saved myself £100 call out. Give Miele their due though, the documentation suggests that if you habitually wash at a low temperature, which we do, you should occasionally run a 95degree wash. My wife was very surprised when I asked her if she did this.

Miele w310..drum fills with water slowly after a wash.put my head in...cant hear water leaking into it..


Did you open the water tap complete? When it is open all the way already, please close the tap complete and remove the hose and check the filter closest to the tap. Eventually clean it and put the hose back. Don't forget to open the tap again and check you did tighten the hose. (No leakage)

I've bought a Miele W310 front loader, which is secondhand, so i don't have a manual. i would just like to know how to do a short wash. There are buttons: 'Short' 'Prewash'...


The short cycle is only an option for Cottons. Make sure that you have set the desired program temp for a cotton cycle (95-30 degrees C). You should be able to select the Short cycle by pressing the button below the Soak light several times. (Note: this cycle is for small amounts of clothing which are lightly soiled - use less detergent (1/2 the amount for a full load).)

If it doesn't work when on the Cotton cycle, then the switch inside the control panel may be faulty.

The manual is available from Miele, http://www.miele.co.uk/customer/OperatingInstructions.aspx . Enter the type of appliance and then scroll down the list. The direct link to the manual for the W310 is http://www.miele.co.uk/Resources/OperatingInstructions/W%20310.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Following the wash cycle with my Miele G464SC


sounds like you mean when the unit is running you are getting water dripping from the bottom of the door panel. if you remove the door panel at the bottom where the door hinges you will find an overflow tray which runs the width of the door. This is probably blocked with food deposits.

If not you may be using too much detergent. try running with no detergent and see if there are any leaks.if you open the door mid cycle the water level shouldn't be any higher than the bottom spray arm. hope this helps

there is still water in the waterproof tray at the bottom of the machine and the float switch has activated. pull the machine out (if pipes allow) and tip the machine backwards to drain the water from the tray.
