Hi.

The machine not filling and carrying on with the cycle is quite unusual.

If the machine advances through the cycle without filling, and without manually advancing the cycle, then it is either a defective water level sensing (pressure switch), or a faulty timer board.

In this case the job is done testing or replacing water level switch (part is not expensive), then if that does not work, replacing the timer board.
The inlet valve may also be tested.

If instead you have to advance manually the cycle, check inlet valve and pressure switch.

The inlet valve may be tested reading Ohms ats terminal (must have continuity). A definitive test is done energizing the valve.

The pressure switch is more difficult to test. This has three contacts and two circuits. The pressure switch opens one circuit and closes the other when water level has been reached (tub full). It is usually replaced rather than testing it.

How do I fix a Miele W 2653 Wasker.


Hi dear. You did not mention what fault code but regards rest of your information, I would say 3 factors play up with it.
1- Tacho generator or it's plug faulty on motor
2- Motor Carbon brushes worn out or
3- Power/control unit ELP151-KD faulty.
I can advised to contact your local Miele center to diagnose your machine.Thanks.

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?


Hi dear.It sounds like you'll need to change water inlet valve very soon.Because,machine waiting water level to be reach,in specific time frame in chosen program parameters to be get completed.If that does not happen,then it starts giving fault indication.Indication stops after fill,because task been competed & computer disregards the fault.If that won't happen then machine going to get stop completely & indication will carry on.Chage the water inlet valve if you can.I hope that helps. Thanks.

Hi If appliance fills then starts to wash then stops and starts. Then most likely cause is debris in circulation motor. This will require appliance and motor to be removed

There's no delay start on our new Miele W3740 washing machine. Can we use an electronic timer in the plug socket to delay the program start (cheap night-time use of electricity)? Thank you. Gerald


yes you could use a delay plug if it dont over rate the plug,,,check how many watts your washer pulls and how many watts the delay plug can handel first,,,if its more than the delay plug can take dont try it or you may just have a fire on your hands,,
even with cheap electricity is it worth that?

Miele g841sc dishwasher leaks


Typically the machine only uses 5-6 quarts of water, If you're floor is getting 1 or 2 quarts check for a loosly connected intake or drain hose. I've never seen any overflow drain on a Miele. It only fills the bottom of the tub. The machine uses a logic program that continuously checks the level of fill and drain by water pressure weight so it always runs with proper amount, even if your intake pressure is weak. Now, If you add too much soap then the bubbles can carry a few ounces over a worn door seal. If the seal is damaged then more spray arm water can run down the front of the machine into the float pan. But after it gets less than a pint of water the drain float will start thr drain pump and shut-off the machine controls and alert you. It won't let you run the machine until the water ( and the problem) is gone. Call Miele for help.
