Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Miele w340 coming up error check drain ..there is no problem with the pump or the pipes as have given the pump a direct feed the pump is good and the water drains out as it should within 60 seconds


Hi dear.
Try out followings see if it helps.(if you know what you are doing.).
1-Unplug machine from power.Remove the fluff filter. Pour some water in to drum and monitor how quickly comes out amount of water poured in to drum. If it's slow there is a blockage between tub to fluff filter hose.
2- There is a non return valve on the machine. When you remove top cover, it's located back LHS. Remove the part but careful not the drop tiny ball inside of it. Check for blockage. Another hose comes from front to middle of LHS panel and joins Y shape attachment. Check that hose also for blockage. Try to blow air in it while keeping fluff filter open. If its blocked, needs properly cleaning.
I hope that helps. Thanks.

Tip

How to maintain your Front loader washing machine.


To maintain your front loader washing machine in good working order and to avoid having a service call there are a few simple maintenance tasks to carry out.

1. Every time you carry out a wash before you switch on the unit you should check the door seal for any foreign particles like coins or hair clips and remove them. If they stay there they can then get past the seal and clog up the fluff filter and drain pump which stops the unit from draining.

2. It is also a good idea to wipe the door seal occasionally

3. There is a fluff filter on the front of the unit in the bottom left or right hand corner behind the service flap. Have a small tray, like a baking tray underneath it and open the flap with some sort of flat lever,coin or screw driver. Turn the tap about 1/4 of a turn and collect about a litre of water from the unit. When it has stopped draining unscrew the tap all the way out and clean the fluff filter which is the tap in your hand.

Also have a look in the hole and you will see the drain pump at the back. Make sure this is free of any foreign particles and can turn. Then re-screw the tap back making sure it is tight.

This should be done regularly every 2-3 months to avoid the unit from not draining.

4. Running a cottons 95c wash every 2-3 months kills off any bacteria build up, and cleans out any excess detergent build up. It also stops the unit from smelling.
You can also use a special washing machine cleaner or just white vinegar as a cleaning agent in the detergent tray to help.

5. After every wash keep the door open for about 30 mins to let it dry out as shutting the door is then a perfect environment for bacteria to develop and the door seal to go mouldy and also causing the unit to smell.

6. Lastly take care when removing clothes as zips can catch on the rubber door seal and tear it. This will then leak water at the bottom of the door.

Hope this helps.

After washes it displays check detergent. some washes are also not spinning properly and cloths are still quite wet. Can you help I have a miele gala grande w 3000


Hi dear.
Basically you can check fluff filter otherwise you may need to have a technical assist. Fluff filter located on front LHS bottom corner of your machine.. Open plastic cover. Place small bowl under fluff filter area to collect about 2 Lt of water. Slowly turn fluff filter anticlockwise to let it drain remaining water in there.. Then remove it and check for blockage. ( Step by step You can get full instruction from your machine's user manual on cleaning and care section.) If that does not solve the issue you may call Miele to assist you or local repairer. I hope that helps.Thanks.

Water keeps filling up the drum and inlet light flashes


either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

Not emptying properly during spin> will


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

A comment about 'SUD' follows my notes on filters ;-0)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is normally behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'SUD' stands for suds or sudding meaning that the machine cannot empty properly because there is too much 'air'/bubbles for it to do so. It maybe that you are using too much powder, fluid or too many tablets for you wash. When SUD appears the machines usually go through extra rinses to try and get rid of the suds before continuing.
Hope all of this helps and good luck!

Our whirlpool sport will not drain, 5d code has appeared. what can we do


SUDS LOCK (OVERDOSE OF DETERGENT DETECTED DURING THE WASH CYCLE)

If suds are detected continuously by the pressure switch during the drain or spin phases, the washer will fill 4 liters of water and during 5 minutes the unit will rest without tumbling, the water will be drained and it will try to spin or drain again.
Possible Causes/Procedure
• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a RINSE/SPIN cycle.
- Run a NORMAL cycle without adding any detergent,
• This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.
1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic Test or any cycle.

"OE" message


OE is actually DE - Drain Error. Pop open the little door on the bottom left of your washer, and unscrew the cap on the little tube on the left. ***Water will drain out!***
Once the water is out, unscrew the bigger tube on the right. This holds your drain filter. It is likely clogged, so clean it out and reinstall the filter and cap from the small hose.
Hopefully this fixes it!

The washing machine keeps blinking sud what does this mean? It won't finish the cycle.. it is a kenmore front loader HE 5t


Either you have too much of the correct detergent in there or the wrong detergent in there. Here are a few of the errors:
1)Water fill problem: water took more than 10 minutes to fill to desired level sometimes indicated as a LF/IE or long fill/inlet error. Water valve screens clogged, hoses kinked, low water pressure, unpaid water bill. Check hose, clean screens.
2)Excessive vibration: noisey,roar, knocking noises. Bad damper,bearing or broken trunion. no error code
3)Dispenser drawer open/detergent in wrong compartment: washer will not operate with drawer open or cleaning products in wrong compartment.
4)Washer won't drain: clogged pump/filter, slow or clogged drain usually indicated as a LD/DE, if a code is given (long drain/drain error) Clear pump of objects
5)Drum overfilled: usually caused by sediment in the water level pressure sensing tube going up to the main control.Find it and blow out the sediment, re-secure pump out water and retry.
6)Door open, Door not latched, clothes/objects keeping door from completly closing. Tighten door latch, add washers if nessesary to make good contact and close door tighter in case of leaks.
7)Cold water does not enter washer: hoses connected backwards. Oops.
8)Oversudsing: Wrong Detergent, turbidity monitors pick up particles in the water and judge soil content then the washer allows for extra time to wash the clothes, if the wrong detergent is in there the machine thinks that is too much and declares a suds error. Remove detergent, retry
9)Locked motor: error LE,loose connection,broken wire/hallsensor, motor overheated/failed.
10)Water heating error, hE, the thermister/heater is out.

Get error SUD and will not finish cycle


The Motor Control Unit senses a suds lock condition by analyzing the current draw on the drive motor. If "Sud" is displayed a potential Suds Lock is detected. This may signify a bad pump, an extra heavy load, excessive detergent, or excessive suds.

Possible Causes / Procedure

• If too much detergent was used:
- Run the unit through a Rinse/Spin cycle.
- Run a Normal cycle without adding any detergent.

This should clear the unit of the excess detergent.

1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
3. Check wire harness connections to the drain pump, pressure switch, and Central Control Unit (CCU).
4. Check/clean drain pump filter of foreign objects.
5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
6. Check drain pump.
7. Check the pressure switch.
8. Verify CCU operation by running a Diagnostic test or any cycle.

pull out the part you have been turning and it unscrews and the filter pulls out. it should not be smelly.if you are using liquid detergent, this will cause the smell. some water will come out when you remove filter but not huge amounts assuming the machune has drained properly
