The flashing red light and the hum are not happening at the same time. The flashing red light has not done that for several days. Today the humming started. The humming NEVER stops. If I reset (hold the start/stop for several seconds) the GREEN light goes solid as it should, indicating it is ready to start, however there should be no humming at that point because the cycle has not started. However, there is humming. The humming only goes away if I remove power (turn off the breaker).
You mean, where does it come from? No idea. It sounds to me something like a motor that is not turning.
I did do that, but everything seems covered when I stick my hand in there. No way to feel anything or hear the source of the hum.
Miele's are tough to work on and often have to be pulled out to get at anything to see what is wrong.You may have to pull remove the bottom and see what is humming.
Hi. Well, I think we have exhausted the possibilities so I will call in a local service company. Thanks for trying.
Sorry to give the low rating. It's only because the problem did not get resolved.
