Customer Question

My Miele Novotronic W135 (top loader) just seems to have blown a fuse or something. It started, then I heard a loud bang, it now smells a little like electric burn and then it stopped all together. The door won't open unless there's electricity, but the electric is not working anymore (tried turning the whole thing off and on again, unplugged/re-plugged). I tried the lower hatch and managed to drain out the water- but there is no orange tab to pull on as many sites suggest... where can I find the release tab for the door?
Thanks in advance,

Hi Rob,
I managed to open the machine and get my laundry out- but the electrics seem to be completely blown out. I think I'll just have to get a new machine. Thanks for your help!

All the best
