Question about Miele Novotronic Premier 500 Front Load Washer

2 Answers

Spin Cycle Drum deceased.

We have a Miele Novotronic W830 washing machine and while doing a wash last Thursday( 21/08/08) both loads I put in came out very wet when finished the cycle.
I tried putting a further load through to see if the same problem occurred again and the same thing happened - the load came out wet again.
I also noticed on some of the clothes white spots appeared at random when the wash was completed - does this possibly indicate the 'Drum' is deceased now?
What would be the cost of replacing the Drum for this model or would it be more economical to purchase a new machine?

What Miele( great machines) model would you reccommend if we do have to replace it and what would the cost be?

Also I tend to over-load the machine at times( very silly of me) - would this shorten the life of the machine and its mechanics/parts?

If you can help me what can I do to remove these 'white spots' off some of our clothes - I hope these aren't permanent fixtures on them.

Thanks for your help.

Rick Watson.

Yes your diagnosis is correct. We had the same on a machine that had done 12,400 washes on a life expectancy of 8,000 washes. Great machines. Airport lounge washing dozens and dozens of towels every day, 7 days a week.

Our machine had a sensor that doesn't let the machine spin at full speed if the drum is out of balance. It was something like a WS3120. We swapped it out for a much larger Miele.

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)

How do I use the washing machine, a miele novotronic w 969

The I is the pre-wash and the III is the main wash where you put the soap powder. the # star looking symbol is the fabric conditioner.

If you don't have a manual you can download this from the miele website.

W830 washing machine stops before end of cycle.

could be something to do with the drain pump, the machine gives itself 3 mins to get bellow a water level before it spins, if it cant make the water level in 3 mins it stops because the weight of the water and clothes would be too much for the machine that would start to dance the tango, check the pump and sump for minor blockages first.
