How do I fix a F53 fault on a Miele W3740 Washing Machine

First, unplug the washer for minutes then plug in and see if it solve the problem, if not then check the carbon brushes on the motor. These are a part which is expected to wear and when they do the motor cannot rotate the drum, which means the speed sensor thinks something is wrong and throws the error.good luck. Fixing an F53 on Miele washing machine

How do you open the front panel to check the brushes

  • Open the door
  • Pull out the mains plug
  • Remove the metal ring around the door opening seal (apply pointed pliers to stretch the spring beneath the door opening)
  • Push back the seal from the front panel
  • Loosen the two door opener screws
  • Remove the plinth
  • Remove the two outer upper screws behind the plinth
  • Remove the bolt right underneath the door opening while supporting the front panel
  • Gently lower the front panel and take it away
If the brushes are all right, then probably the electronic is defective.

Cannot open door

The door interlock may not have engaged properly! This has happened to me and I use my knee and bang it against the door near the catch and once the lock is engaged the door open button will work. If not you'll need to remove the rectangular access panel above the plinth and get a flat head screwdriver in the slots to open the door.

Thought it was maybe time to check the filter and now find I cannot open the plinth at bottom of W123 machine. I assume there is a knack to this that I have just not mastered. Any tips welcome!

Just get a screwdriver or similar, and prize the plinth off from the front of panel, do it from the top of the plinth, you should see the filter at the bottom front left of washer.
Turn anti-clockwise to remove and clean.

How do I reconnect hose?

1. Bend or put on back side the appliance and remove the three screws which secure the plinth to the lower part.
2. Remove the filter door
3. Remove two screws
4. Release the plinth
5. Turn it
6. Remove the plinth

I just got a ntc Temperature Sensor for a W1213 Washer and was wondering how easy it is to change??


Make sure there's no water in the drum.

Important! Switch off and remove plug from electricity supply!

Remove front base plinth (pulls off use a plastic lever if necessary - one inside soap dispenser drawer). Remove front panel of machine (torx screws at bottom, torx screw under drum. Slacken wire around door seal and remove (hook it with a smallish screwdriver. Do not damage seal. they are ridiculously expensive).

Unclip seal from front panel. Pull front panel out from the bottom, then down. Reach around the now detached front panel and unclip door lock wiring). Put panel somewhere it won't fall over.

Locate element underneath drum at the front - oval rubber with connections to it.

Temperature sensor is in the middle of the element. Unclip the plug from the back of the sensor. Gently but firmly pull the sensor out toward you. It's just a friction fit in the rubber. you can use narrow pliers but don't crush the socket of the sensor. If you want to test it, put a multimeter set to ohms on it. Resistance will vary under say a hot or cold tap/faucet.

New temperature sensor will push fit into old hole - moisten case first to make it easier with a tiny bit of washing up liquid (or spit!). You might want to test it first as above.

Reconnect wires, lock harness, front panel, attach door seal, attach door seal retaining wire, screws, base plinth.

you need to adjust the door tension springs which is by a screw each side of the hinges on the plinth of the unit at the front. There is a symbol of a spring to show you which screws to release. do them evenly and the door will not spring up,
