I am New to this forum and need a place to gather information about my washing machine to understand it better and to be able to maintain it properly.

What i have is a Miele W149 "Novotronic" from around 2001 so it`s basically 20 year old now. It is still alive and well and pulling its weight. That being said i did replace the two bearings oh maybe two years ago due to a terrible ruckus from the old bearings. It was quite the job for someone who has never touched a washing machine before but i got er done. Ok, cutting to the chase. What are the most typical issues when dealing with 20 y.o. old washers. The motor seems to be working just fine so hoping this will last a few more years. As for the thermostat, i suspect it is no longer working properly but i have no real way of knowing this other than a suspicion that the clothes seem less than 100% after the washing programme is over. What about the control panel, is this something that is prone to shortcomings when of age? Any circuits that typically need replacing?

Hello there. There's nothing much to do other than if you really wanted to check on the carbon brushes in the motor. If they have not been replaced before they may well be quiet worn. Control panel should be fine, it's not something that is subject to any wear so as long as they are well made they don't tend to fail.

They can, especially on a Miele.
