Check to see if your Miele washer is not responding. Is the circuit tripping? To test whether the outlet’s electrical circuit is the problem then plug in a hair dryer or any other electrical device into it. If the device doesn’t work, then the wiring in the outlet could be the cause. Find an electrician to fix the outlet’s electrical wiring. If the hair dryer works then there is an electrical issue in the washer.
Here are the steps to check the wiring of your Miele washer:
- Unplug the Miele washer and inspect the power cord for damages. If the power cord is damaged, repair it.
- Verify the wiring connections to the control board’s main circuit or timer. Connect any loose wires.
- If your Miele washer is equipped with a digital display, check the wire connections between the main control board and the user interface board. Connect any wires that are loose from the user interface. If the wiring connections are working, you might have to replace the main control board or the user interface board.
We recommend that you have a service technician test the Miele washing machine’s control board and user interface board as well as the Miele washer timer prior to replacing control components. The testing of the controls generally requires live voltage checks. Because these tests are risky, we recommend that you conduct live voltage tests on your Miele washer.
Replace the Miele washer main controller board: The main electronic control board (also known as the mother board) controls the timing and execution of washer components. It controls the drain valves and fill valves pumps, and also the drive motor.
Change the Miele washer timer: The timer often referred to as a cycle selector — is the dial used to select the cycle on the Miele washing machine that has mechanical controls. The washer is able to move through its cycles starting with the filling to the final spin by using the timer. Replace the timer if it fails to allow the washer to progress through its cycles.
Replace the Miele washer’s user interface board: The user interface board contains the buttons you use to set up the washing cycle. If any of the buttons are not working, replace the user interface board. In the end it is clear that a Miele washing machine that isn’t working in any way can be a frustrating and overwhelming problem to address. However, the many reasons for a Miele washing machine not working can be solved by the home owner.
