Overfoaming is nothing to do with the washer - something to do with the detergent you are using like not a detergent for automatic washers or one of the eco types which tend to overfoam

Miele washing machine w5872 what is fault 16?

Fault 16 means "Overdose". You get this error when you use too much soap. The electronic registers excessive foam building up.
Run a program without laundry, 95°C, extra water and about 200 ml of Acetic acid 16% solution (household vinegar) to neutralize the (alkaline) soap.

JVC TD-W718 double tape deck capstan belt

Probably the wrong belt. It is also possible that your old belt had stretched and the machine was playing slow. Check with a recording of instrumental (not vocal) music.

If you have a little screwdriver you can adjust the motor's speed via the little hole on the back of the motor.

I suggest a plastic screwdriver so you don't short something out.

Using a tuning fork or electronic tuner or musical instrument will help you get the speed right.

Despite having thoroughly cleaned the cappucinator and descaling the system recently, we just don't seem to get real steamed foam. It appears to be just hot milk with a few bubbles on the top.

when you remove the cappucinotore, there is a little clear plastic tube sticking up from the top of it. this is an air entrance oriface. this is where the air is brought into the steamed milk in order to froth it. the hole is very small, like the size of a hair. You need to clean this, or if you cant get it clean, your machine came with a spare one. It was in the cardboard box with the cleaning tablets, o rings, and descale tabs. Once this is clean, air bubbles can get into the milk and you should have nice foam. let me know if that doesnt work.

Have miele dishwasher g641 inlet/outlet light flashing the water is going in and is draining starts flashing about 5/10 mins after starting do you know what else to try many thanks janet

Just encountered exact same problem - happened after attempting to clean very greasy pans so grease/oil created foam/more or less solid material in filter area, but as well in pressure switch (pn 4859640)
This seems to be the cause (not sure yet)

Thanks for your posting in FixYa.

Reset the error message as follows:
To cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to Stop/End or press the Start/Stop switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again.

Cause may be due to A sensor detected too much foam in the wash cabinet. The cleaning program has been interrupted.

If detergent tabs are used, which already include the rinse aid, the function "2 in 1" should be selected. Please do not use detergent tabs in the program "Quick wash 40°C".

If the fault message reappears, please contact our Customer Service.
