  1. Hi all I have a Miele W5780 which is only about 6 years old. Yesterday the machine started to make a quite loud clanking sound when spinning. Can someone please tell me, is this a bearing or shock absorber issue? I've attached a video to show the issue. Will add a picture in a subsequent post. washingmachine.mov
  2. Apologies for too many words but some background is relevant: Two years ago we made a huge mistake of replacing our Bosch washer/dryer with a Miele. For months we have been plagued by foreign matter/bits of debris in the machine after a cycle. We recently had to get a Miele engineer our as the dryer fan had seized. The removed part looked like it was 20 years old and seized solid. It beggars belief that Miele could design a machine that would run with a fan seized and not display an error message, that's what they have done. Miele customer service and website is an embarrassment to them. Tod
  3. Hi, I have Miele W2444 Washing machine that has started showing the Check Drain warning. I have tried to remove the drain filter with no success! I opened up the little door on the bottom left of the machine, turned the screw cap which let out about a pint or so of water. I continued to turn the screw cap until it came off and was left with just the screw cap. Most of the demonstrations show the drain filter attached to the screw cap. What is left behind the screw cap cannot be pulled out easily and I dont want to pull too hard and break something. I have attached pictures of th
  4. I have a brand new WDD 030 washing machine. The only issue is that when the water drains, there is an unpleasant "knocking" or "gurgling" sound that seems to come from behind the dispenser drawer. The Miele agent stripped down the machine and has taken a video of the issue to discuss with Miele. Could this be a problem with the pump? If so, would a new pump be any better?
  5. Hello, I’m looking for some advice regarding a 10 year old Miele w524 which has a flashing drain light, I have been through all the posts on here and tried all the things mentioned, the machine has been taken apart by hubby and all pipes and hoses and the white box at the back cleared of a lot of gunk everything is now clear , taken off pump, all clear, still have flashing drain light at the rinse cycle , it worked on the wool cycle but this morning on a easy iron cycle same problem , it’s possible it works only with a light load , we also live in a very hard water area, I have it draining in
  6. I've got a Miele W970, I think from 2001, which until a few months ago, never gave me a moment's trouble. Then the door latch failed (got Miele out to fix it, which was't cheap). Now it has developed a leak. I've knackered my rotator cuff, so I can't pull it out to get at the back of it, and it seems to be enclosed underneath, so it's hard tell where the leak is coming from. It doesn't help that the user manual is sparse and I can't find a service manual. It's not a huge leak (maybe half a litre?) and it only leaks on pumping out, though it seems to leak faster when spinning. Just from t
  7. have a miele novotronic w310 front loader from the 2004 era. Been a great machine and hasn't done a lot of work (~250 cycles). Slight leak from front door seal. Noticed that there was a crinkle in the bottom of the front door/ drum seal. Not sure what this was from so took off the seal, expecting to have to replace it. After its removal I could see why the seal was distorted. The drum/ outer hub opening was not centred in the door opening but had sagged and thus causing the crinkle in the seal. With the seal out it resumed a more normal shape and was in fair order except for a minor
  8. I have a Miele novotronic W807 (20 years without problem) yesterday started to make me this: Starts washing, draws water, it starts the main wash which takes too long (almost double time than ago) and when it's to go to the next step (rinse) crashes and then begins flashing the light of main wash(hauptwasche). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWdLHmf ... e=youtu.be1. If i leave it so, the light blinks and then after half an hour, the machine proceeds to the next step (rinse) lamp lights for rinsing, but the light of the main wash keeps flashing and the machine completes normally all subsequent
  9. HiFolks I have a Miele W820 Washing Machine that's approximately 17 years old and is now not starting it's cycle (ie does not commence filling) on some Program Settings, but is ok on others. The machine starts correctly in the following positions: - In the 'Cottons' programs the 70,80&90 deg C positions work (not 30,40,50&60) - In the 'Minimum Iron' programs the 40,50&60 work (not 30) - In the 'Delicates' programs only the Cold works (not 30,40,50&60) - In the 'Woolens' programs only 40 works (not Cold & 30) - None of Starch, Spin, Drain & Quick Wash progr
  10. Hi, We have a Miele Edition 111 W5877 washing machine, that for the most part has been very good. Spin is almost silent. It is nearly 3 years old and is just out of their 2 year warranty, typically. They want £170 to just come out and have a look! Recently it has started causing our white sheets to have some grey marks on when they come out of the machine. They are like thin grey lines in creases, almost like something has left a residue. Maybe oil from the machine somewhere? Can the sheets get behind any seals anywhere perhaps? It only happens with our sheets, we've never noti
  11. After 9 years my Indesit washing machine is close to death (though the dryer bit died about 6 years ago) and I need to replace it. This had a 5kg drum which I found a bit small. I have decided to go with a freestanding model as the integrated ones are so expensive and to just get a washing machine as I haven't missed the dryer (nor the excessive electric bills) at all. I've read so many reviews my head is spinning at 1600rpm! I think I've got it down to a few models now, but am unsure which to go for. Miele WDA101 7kg drum - cheapest price I can find is £539, is it worth this type of money
  12. My washing machine W 418 Softronic is leaking underneath near the front as the floor is continually wet I have no idea why I've emptied the filter but it still leaks. HELP!!
  13. I have a Miele W906 that has behaved faultlessly for nearly 16 years. It has been plumbed in its current location for 10 years, connected to low pressure (loft tank fed) cold supply - there is no mains supply where it is located. It has just developed two problems, and one would think they are related but I can't work out how. Problem 1: With machine switched off but stop cock on, the drum fills with some fresh, clean water overnight. Stop cock off, this stops and if you take the detergent drawer out there is a drip, drip of water, hours after the machine has been used. Diagnosis = inlet val
