Question about Miele Novotronic W1918A Front Load Washer

Miele Novotronic W 844 Washing Machine

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

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.

Good luck,
Adam

Novotronic washer w1918 jumps violently when transitioning from main wash to rinse 1-2 with 21 minutes to go to end of wash cycle


If the problem is consistent, FIRST check to make your machine is level. Also try cleaning the machine out with no clothes in it using white vinegar on a hot wash. If you're having a problem with high speed spin with NO load in it, it could be shaft/bearing related which would probably be too expensive to fix. Otherwise you could simply just be adding loads incorrectly or overloading it.

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.

My Miele Novotronic W 844 Washing Machine will not completely spin dry my clothes. They are soggy at the end of the wash cycle. Help please! (My machine's settings are in German.)


Hi there are 3 possible causes.
1. Out of balance load (drum is divide into 3 sections if weight i one section is greater then 1.25kg than another section will not spin)
2.Carbon brushes ( Normally good for at least 10 years)
3. Vent from drain pump blocked.(Vent left front side of soap drawer. Visible when drawer removed)

Flashing rinse light is a drive fault. No motor action. If it's an earlier model it would be the motor brushes. Later model will be the electronic which controls the motor.
