Question about Washing Machines
Washing machine (miele novotronic w830) as of yesterday will not work.
The water does not seem to be getting into the machine. It is only dribbling through.
Tap works, pipe clear at both ends.
I lifted the top cover of the washing machine and disconected the black pipes leading into the area we place our detergent. But only at that end. The other ends are still conected. I then turned on the machine and the only pipe to have a little water come through it was the K 5 inlet pipe. If that makes sense.
Thank you for advice! My Miele Novotronic W830 is 17y old, been working well, until yesterday. When taking water, much started spilling on floor under the left lower corner of the machine.
I opened the cover, found a loose hose under the detergent tray, did set it back in place and tightened the band.
First you better loosen the band, it slips more easily on the funnel.
In my photos you can see the screw is pointing to wrong direction to be able to use a screwdriver, but I did manage it with bare hands.
Be sure there is no power connected when opening the cover!
And don't drop anything inside, when opened the cover, it is a nasty place to get it back...

Change your inlet valve, it would solve your problem.

K5? which pipe is that..let's assume you have pressure to the back of the unit, yes? then you have a valve sticking or something obstructing the channels inside that unit..
does this work regardless of temperature setting.
