Miele Washer Troubleshooting Tips

Miele Washer Troubleshooting Tips

The most common customers complaint is that over the period of time, the Miele washing machine wash results begin to decline. Listed are few  tips for you to improve your washer machine performance.

Overuse of detergent. Excessive use of detergent can cause over sudsing in the unit. Same applies for over use of the fabric softener. Continued over sudsing will cause detergent build-up within washing machine. To eliminate detergent build-up use more often cycles at the temperature 170F or more.

Washing at lower temperatureThe water temperature is very important for the effectiveness of the washing machine. Because Miele does not recommend the use of a liquid chlorine bleach, it is important to wash whites at a high temperature. If whites are washed at temperatures below 140°, the whites will start to gray. This can be corrected by washing the items at a higher temperature. Of course, it is imperative to always follow the manufacture’s instructions for washing the garments. 

  • If a customer is going to use temperatures at 120° or above it is recommended that they use a prewash cycle first. At temperatures of 120° and above, the incoming water is hot and will set any organic stains on the fabric. A prewash cycle is a short 13-minute cycle that uses cold water only, thus removing any organic stains on the clothing. 
  • If a customer has white garments that can not be washed at a higher temperature, they can always use a detergent with bleach or the can add a non-chlorine powdered bleach, such as Clorox II, to the main wash detergent compartment. If this is the case, remind the customer that these non-chlorine bleaches do have some sudsing properties and they should use ½ the normal amount of detergent and fill the other ½ with the non-chlorine bleach.

Grease and rust stains on clothing. It is impossible for the washing machine, itself, to cause grease or rust spots on the clothing. There are no mechanical parts within the machine that will cause this problem. 

  • Typically, these grease spots are caused by washing unlike colors at the same time at to high of a temperature. Because of the wash action it is possible for clothes to get a spotted from another article of clothing that has bled within the wash cycle. 
  • As far as the rust spots are concerned, it is possible that an underwire from a bra or any other metal add-on to the garment can come out and lodge itself between the inner and outer tubs. After a period of time this underwire will begin to rust and can stain the garments being washed. Another indication of this will be a very loud grinding sound when the unit is in operation, although this is not always the case. Unfortunately, it probably will not be possible for the customers to remove the underwire themselves. If this appears to be happening, the customer will need to have a service call with an service company.

Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting

This article explains simple Bosch Dishwasher Troubleshooting procedures you can do in your home before you call for professional service. Bosch is number one manufacturer of the high-end dishwashers that give you the choice of flexibility, cycle options, and quiet operation. But even the best dishwashers are not perfect. When your Bosch dishwasher stops working, there are few steps you can do to troubleshoot and possible solve the problems.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not cleaning dishes:

    Make sure that the dishwasher is filling up with water. Also, check for clogged spray arms, drain filter and the circulation pump operations. One of the most common problems is the white residue on the dishes after the dishes being washed. This is due to the lack of phosphates in dishwasher detergents, and simply changing the detergent might solve this problem.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not draining:

    If your Bosch dishwasher experience the drain issue it will display E24 or E25 error. First thing to do is to check for the clogged air gap. The air gap provides back-flow prevention for an installed dishwasher. To clean it, simply remove the top of the air gap and clean the accumulated debris. If the problem persist, you might have an issue with the clogged drain hose or failed  drain pump. In that case you should look for Bosch Dishwasher Service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is making noise:

    The most common cause will be the accumulated water in the dishwasher base that activates the safety switch. The drain pump will run all the time and the program can not be switched off. The display will usually show errors such as E15 or E17.  If you don't see the obvious reason for the water leak in to the base, call for service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is not dispensing soap:

    If your Bosch dishwasher is not spraying water the soap will not dissolve. Check for the clogged spray arms, drain filter and for the circulation pump operation. If your detergent dispenser will not open it's either due to faulty dispenser or the faulty heather circuit. In any case you should call for service.
  • Bosch dishwasher is overflowing:

    Your dishwasher might overfill with water even if it is not in use.  This is due to the faulty water inlet valve. The solenoid part of the valve fails to shut off and  the water keeps entering the dishwasher. The only way to stop the water filling up your dishwasher is to find the water supply shut off valve and to turn the water supply off. The shut off valve is usually under the kitchen main sink. To replace the valve you will need to call Bosch dishwasher professional service.
If you're not certain that you can safely perform these simple troubleshooting steps our advice is to call for Bosch Dishwasher Service.
