One, two, three: Miele W8440 Programming
Want more options? More water for rinsing? Reduce maximum spin? Special washing cycle for the people with allergies?
You've got it!
Now, letÂs start our "Teach Yourself Miele 8440 Programming in 24 second"!
1. Open the drum door.
2. Press and hold the "Pause" button until the washer shuts down.
3. Press and hold the "Start" button, close the drum door while holding the "Start" button.
4. After the "Start" button indicator flashes one time release the "Start" button.
5. Press the "Start" button five times (very important, you should start pressing button immediately after step 4) and hold on fifth until the display shows "programming mode" .
Display will show the very first programming option, "Reset", so you can always roll back all your programming & tweaking wrongdoings.
Now, as an equivalent of the first "Hello World" code, let's program Miele to add extra water in the rinsing cycle.
Press left menu button to scroll through the programming options until the "Water+" entry shows up.
Press the right menu button ( under "OK" on the display). You are now in the "Water+" submenu. Press the left button to scroll through the submenu. The following option will be available:
Stop on the "Water+" and press the right button ("OK").
"Water+" will change to "Water+^"
Press the left button and scroll to the "Back", then press the right "OK" button, you will return to the Main Menu.
Scroll through the menu pressing the left button till the very last entry - "Exit", then press the right "OK" button.
Congratulations, you washer has been successfully reprogrammed, more water on the rinsing cycle, bigger numbers in your water bill.
P.S. Don't tweak with the options you don't understand, consult knowledgeable Miele support representative first. I also would not recommend to play with the country version, low water pressure option etc, use your common sense!
