Question about Miele Novotronic W1918A Front Load Washer
Currently our washing machine during the rinse cycle on hot washes and at all times dduring normal washes flashes the red check inlet light. Now i have removed the inlet hoses and cleaned both filters. I have also removed the lower filter and cleaned that. I also pulled the fabric softener tray out and demoulded the whole compartment (hmm that was a thankless task). The problem is still there, when i do a dummy load with just hotwater as per the instruction booklet it works fine right uptil the rinse cycle whereby it craaps out yet aagain with a red flashing light. Even when i individually select rinse it doesnt allow water in. Can anyone out there offer me some sort of solution as we use it three times a day, have a child with a serious incontinance problem. Cheers Pete
When I had this problem I went along the entire water inlet route and verified flow. Water flow entering the soap dispenser tray should be very robust & audible; if not, you have a flow restriction or low pressure, flashing red light or not.
I'm stating the obvious because I actually missed some filter elements the first time I tried. Disconnect inlet hose at plastic fitting on chassis and verify your flow there. Then look inside the inlet barb and use a small pair of channel lock or lineman's pliers to grasp the tab on the inverted "basket" and pull it straight out. These filters can be packed full of sand and small gravel inside--they were in my case.
