My Miele W980 WPS washing machine is about 20 years old & was working perfectly until last weekend . I had it on timer and when I came down there were three red bars on the display and the red check inlet light was flashing. We disconnected the WPS box from the tap and connected it all up again...plus we found & fixed a leak on the isolation valve leading to the tap & had to turn the main stopcock on & off a few times The next wash worked perfectly, but yesterday there was only a dribble of water coming into the dispenser, the WPS box was humming slightly and the red inlet light was flashing again. I'd be very grateful for any suggestions. Thanks
The dryer leaves clothes steaming. Looking at the forum I saw it may be the inlet valve. I checked and the solenoid to the condenser has no reading whilst the other 2 where around 30 ohms. I checked online for a spare triple inlet valve but the parts conpanies say it is obsolete. Can you replace lust the solenoid or buy an alternative make? The machine is Siemens WI54430GB/02 Thanks for any help.
Hi My Hoover Nextra washer dryer has been working fine for 4 years but now after the trip switch went off, it won't fill with water (the trip switch is back on). All filters are clean as per instruction manual. Water supply and hose are fine - no kinks or blocks and the tap is on. Power supply is fine. Spin and drying cycles work fine but not wash or rinse cycles. No water enters machine at all - not the drawer or the drum. I've followed all troubleshooting tips in the manual and online. I even bought a new triple solenoid valve and replaced it but to no avail. On selecting a wash program and pressing start the "door lock light" lights up, the appropriate "time remaining light" lights up - then it just sits there for 3 or 4 minutes doing nothing then the "start" light and the "delay start" button light flash intermittently. There is nothing in the manual for this combination of lights. Also if a delay start was selected it should light up the delay time which it isn't doing. Pressing any button at this time doesn't change anything on the control panel. It's basically frozen. I'm guessing there must be an electrical fault but not at the solenoid valve - somewhere further back down the line - but how do I find out where or what is at fault? Is it worth repairing? Hoover will charge £120 for callout + extra for parts. Machine cost about £400 4 years ago. Apart from the solenoid valve is there anything else that is DIYable? Hope someone can advise... Kind Regards Andy
pauley987 posted a topic in UK Washing Machine Repair QuestionsHi guys Simple question from a complete novice at these things. My washing machine inlet hose is leaking at the tap. It's not a standard hose, it's It's got a waterstop on the end to make it compatible with the AEG anti flood feature. The washer dryer is an AEG L14850 I had a plumber in and he changed the tap which was very old anyway. The washer inside the valve is fitted with some sort of filter and he didn't think it was standard. Anyway, a few hours later and Now it's leaking again, though not anywhere near as much. So I guess I'm looking for a new inlet hose. When looking on the AEG site there are two extremely similar looking devices, the only difference appears to be the colour plus the price. The one that I have already is listed at £43 and the similar looking one is £23. Same as what I have now - http://shop.aeg.co.uk/product/3792785028/Washing+Machine+Inlet+Hose+Assembly Similar one - http://shop.aeg.co.uk/product/50284341000/SAFETY+SYSTEM+1.5m+Inlet+Hose Your advice would be appreciated.
