Hi, welcome to Just answer
How old is it ?
It is a Novotronic
It is a Novotronic, S/N 48144010, More than 10years old
OK, thanks for that
Rinse light flashing in Miele w844 usually indicates a problem with carbon brushes that will need replacement
when was these carbon brushes replaced ?
or it has never been replaced ?
They have never been replaced
ok as you have already cleaned the drain pipes etc so it is time to replace the brushes
The drain works but the Spin does not, are there two motors?
are you willing to replace it yourself ?
I am confused, how can the drain pump work but not the Spin if there is only one motor?
Rinse light flashing is a fault for no motor action, the drain is controlled by the drain pump....as the carbon brushes have not been replaced so I believe the problem is with brushes...if the brushes are fine then it is the control
I will look at the brushes. Thank you. If the brushes are OK then I will change the Control Module. The layout of the unit says that the Drain Pump runs off the opposite end of the Motor to the Drum drive. Is the Motor constructed so that the two are separate shafts within the same housing, or a composite shaft that can separate?
this is the motor for your washer
i have had a look under the Washer. There is a separate small Motor for the Drain Pump.
I mean it is nothing to do with drain working
that is the drain pump
the rinse light indicates problem with motor
Hopefully Brushes will cure the problem. Thank you.
