Question about Washing Machines
My Miele on/off buttons, or any lights / switches work. Power supply is okay, as all other appliances work fine. Is there such a fuse somewhere which could have blown. If yes, where is it and how easy is it to change it?
If the power box is bad, The computer will not come on. if you only get a green light, you would need to start with replaceing the power box, if you get a new one and the same thing happens, then the mother board is bad too.

I had the same problem. The screws around the perimeter of the back plate must be unscrewed and the plate must be pried off as it is glued to the box. When replacing my fuse, 2A 5x20 GMA, it blew the fuse again. Disconnecting the second circuit board prevented the next fuse from blowing, but now the question is what is wrong with the circuit board? I cannot see any damage or shorts.

If you measure across the varistor leads with it still in the circuit, you should measure around 100-300 ohms, which is the DC resistance of the primary of the low voltage transformer.
If you read infinity / open the primary of the low voltage transformer is bad.
If the varistor is bad, it will be shorted and usually it will be cracked or split. This is a much simpler way to test the varistor.
Have you checked the magnetron thermal cutout (TCO) (or thermostat if so equipped) and the oven TCO? These are the leading causes of a dead GE when the fuse is okay.
You didn't mention the model number. What is it?

Give the door a firm push shut (even if it appears shut already). There is a safety mechanism that stops the door opening when drum is turning and it gets its knickers in a twist sometimes. Happened to me twice in the last 5 years and can never remember how to fix so end up ringing Miele support who are always helpful. Next time I'll look here first!
