Miele Komfort W1713 type HW13
8 years old
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for that information.

What happens when you do turn power off at the mains or unplug it for 30 full minutes as I recommend you try so I can narrow the fault condition to a specific component?

Please let me know, if after you do that, if you need to turn it on for the error to appear, or if its only after you turn it on that you get the error?

Thank you

The fault only appears a couple of minutes into the cycle
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for that as well.

When you start the washer, can you tell what cycle its in when you get this fault?

Also does the motor run at all, to move the clothes?

Thank you

The water comes in but the buzzer starts before the clothes move
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Thank you for all that info.

Usually on this one when that happens the motor is the fault. I know this because I fix so many.

To repair this one you will need a new motor.

Its easy to fit with juts a few basic hand tools if you are a little handy.

I will help as best I can.

The best place to get a replacement motor is: http://www.espares.co.uk/

I would call them to order this motor. Please call espares: 0844 9777 888

I will stick with you until this is complete.
