Same - there's a company in Denmark which does brushes - you have to hunt them down on the web. The brushes come in a brass slider and spring, and sit in a rubber cage. Make sure you don't throw away any bits of the old brushes as you might need to reuse the old rubber cage.

Another solution (if you have the rubber cage) is to move the brushes along a bit and bend the metal tabs on the brass slider. That will give you a contact again - the machine will work for a few weeks or so, which gives you time to order the new brushes.

It means what it says! i.e. water is not getting into the machine, the inlet hose or path is blocked or the inlet valve has failed. You need to turn off power and water and check it is getting water through inlet hose and that the inlet filter is clear, the filter can be seen on the valve when you remove the hose. You will need to open the machine to check the inlet valve and tubing. Hope that helps please vote

You'll have to check the drain pump assembly located inside the bottom front panel of the unit. Take it out and clean it completely to solve the issue. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

How to check a miele novotronic anti syphon unit

During rinse, water usually flows through the softener dispenser. The cup fills up and a small siphon tube triggers a siphon action
which pulls the softener and water into the washer. This siphon tube is probably blocked with crud. See if you can pull a small cap like part out of the softener dispenser area. Clean both the inside of the cap and the hole under it. This will allow the water to flow into washer instead of flooding.

When starting the machine its starts washing without filling

This could be because the water level fill switch assembly is bad and it is telling the washer that it is already full of water.

When cold water is selected the washer does not start or if cold rinse is selected it does not fill or go any further in the cycles

Cold water valve is faulty. on hotter washes it will fill with hot but all rinses are cold fill so will stop waiting for water at first rinse.

I have a Miele W1918 washer which has worked perfectly for a decade. Now there is not enough water to fill the tub during the first 'rinse' phase of normal cycles or the 'separate rinse' cycle. The machine...

I have exactly the same problem. I am currently getting around the issue by letting the machine do the washing then at the end of that cycle do a manual rinse cycle.

Water only fills the machine in certain parts of cycle

a 90* wash will fill mainly with hot water / a 40* wash will fill mainly with cold water, this is normal action, rinses fill up with cold water only

is this what you are describing, if so thats normal, especially if its doing the job correctly

Miele Washer problem Novotronic Premier

Main wash light flashing is a heating fault. You either have a faulty temp sensor (NTC) or the pressure chamber has blocked and the heater element has popped.
