Ok since I know how to open the servicemode on my Miele (2000 Gold), I've decided, before I buy any other miele I have to know how to get in the service mode. I know that all series with a button start and short, you have to press both of them and switch the power on to get into the mode... but what about the washer form the new series W3000? Haven't tried it yet on other machines, except my aunt's miele (W3245) where i tried serveral touch combinations, without succes... Has someone found the key to this mystery?

Hi askomiele,

What does this service mode do exactly? I tried it on mine and as i turned the programmes selector it displayed a flashing 'P' followed by either a 0,1,or 2. What relevance is this?

The servicemode...

allows you to test al the components of your washer. You can let the machine fill through the prewash, mainwash conditioner compartment, untill on of the preset levels is reached. You can test the motor by either selecting the wash rythm or the spinspeeds (from the lowest, to the highest). And you can test the heater by selecting it's serviceprogram, and turning it on untill the preset test temperature is reached.

Brilliant, a very handy feature to have, although when i turned the selector, although the display showed the 'P' followed by the number, nothing happened, the machine didnt fill, the motor didnt do i get the machine to carry out these functions?

"P" stands for programming mode. This allows you to alter machine settings. For example, you can alter the Water Plus button to either give you more water for the rinses, the wash and the rinses, an extra rinse or more water for both washing and rinsing and an extra rinse. In the display, this corresponds to P1 to P4. You can also turn suds-cooling on and off, extends soaking times etc.

The service mode allows you to temporarily test all the parts of the machine (motor, heater, pressure switch etc.) but it doesnt change the machines programming.

Id be interested in knowing, how to access more programming options than those indicated in the manual like the hidden options on the American W4080, which are displayed once you access the hidden service menu:

You probably have figured it out by now, but it may help someone else.

You could try the same way as for W5000 series:
Close the door (important), turn off the washer if it's on, then:
Press the start button and then turn on the washer while keeping both buttons pressed until the start button stops blinking, then:
- for the custom settings mode: just wait
- for the service mode: press the start button 3 times and keep it pressed
- for the service settings mode: press the start button 5 times and keep it pressed
