Re: Not draining or spinning
If it stops when the machine is trying to balance before a spin and get a F 21 or similiar error you will need to do a radical pump cleanout and flush it. After access is gained get a large paint tray or better yet if the machine is on a pedestal use a mop bucket. for the bucket or tray I will either slide the pump out or on some loosen a torx screw at the front base and pull it forward enough to position over a bucket along with some towels and dont worry about the wire harness it will bend down. When drained look in the hole that leads to the impeller on the pump and check for blockage and try to turn it with a finger because if it is loose you need a new pump.Try tapping and squeezing the bellows behind the trap and finally examine all with a flashlight then run the machine on a rinse spin to and check for leaks. NOTE: If water doesn't pump after this and the pump just hums,.. replace it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Basically you can check fluff filter otherwise you may need to have a technical assist. Fluff filter located on front LHS bottom corner of your machine.. Open plastic cover. Place small bowl under fluff filter area to collect about 2 Lt of water. Slowly turn fluff filter anticlockwise to let it drain remaining water in there.. Then remove it and check for blockage. ( Step by step You can get full instruction from your machine's user manual on cleaning and care section.) If that does not solve the issue you may call Miele to assist you or local repairer. I hope that helps.Thanks.
Cleaning the fluff filter and pump
Check the fluff filter initially after 3 - 4 washes to ascertain how often it is likely to require cleaning. With normal cleaning approx. 2 litres of water run out.
If the drain outlet is clogged, more water will be retained in the machine (up to 25 litres).
Caution: if laundry has been washed at a high temperature,
water draining out of the machine will still be hot!
Take the (yellow) filter flap opener from behind the detergent drawer facia panel. Open the flap.
Place a dish under the drain fixture. Turn the fluff filter lid round 2 - 3
times. Do not take it right out.
With large volumes of water when the dish is full, screw the fluff filter back into position and empty the dish before repeating the procedure.
Once the flow of water ceases, remove the fluff filter completely and
Remove any foreign bodies (e.g. buttons, coins, etc.) and fluff.
Turn the impeller by hand to check that it is free to rotate. Any foreign objects causing an obstruction should be removed.
Clean the inside of the fluff filter housing. Remove any deposits of lime scale and detergent or foreign bodies from the thread of the filter housing and filter unit (as these objects can cause a leakage
of water). Put the fluff filter back and screw it in firmly.
Cleaning and care
To clean the water inlet filters
The washing machine has two filters to protect the inlet valves. These filters should be checked every 6 months or so, or more often if there are frequent interruptions to the water supply.
To clean the filter in the union in the open end of the inlet hose:
First turn off the stopcock.
Unscrew the threaded union connecting the free end of the inlet hose to the stopcock.
Remove the rubber seal from the recess. Using pointed pliers, take hold of the plastic filter bar, remove the filter and clean.
Put the filter and seal back in the reverse order and reconnect the
hose. Turn on the stopcock and check the connection is watertight.
Inspect the inlet hose which is subjected to high pressure while the machine is in operation. The hose should be replaced if there are small cracks in the surface, or if it has been otherwise damaged.
If replacing the inlet hose only use a hose able to withstand pressure up to 70 bar. Miele's own hoses meet this requirement.
To clean the filter in the water inlet valve:
Using pliers, carefully loosen the ribbed plastic nut on the inlet valve,
Use water pump pliers to withdraw the plastic filter by the bar.
Clean, put back and secure.
The two filters must be put back in place after cleaning.
Good Day, Your
washing machine is fully automatic?
washing cycle is normal?
do the same maybe it will help you.
the fully automatic washing machine mostly have drain pump, please check the
filter of your drain pump, how? remove the cup of your drain pump like a
ordinary cup, screw it clock wise or counter clock wise.
drain pump filter and clean it, some hair pins, cotton buds or coins or any
small item that coz of clog up.
your washing machine dont have drain pump ,but fully automatic check the drain
motor if running or not? how? open the back cover for top loader washing
machine only, select spin cycle and press start to see the drain motor running?
the drain motor is like a small box with small wire to pull the lever of the
drain to remove water inside, if the motor running or pull the lever of the
water pipe but water still inside the washing machine, remove the drain cup or
cover and clean it or check if have coin or cloth inside that coz of clog or
drain pump or drain motor is weak this is will cause and long time draining or
totally not running the drain pump or drain motor and its cause of totally stop
the cycle of washing machine in rinse time or spin time, because all fully
automatic washing machine, after washing cycle the drain pump or drain motor
must be on, to remove water before start the next cycle. rinse or spin cycle.
if your washing machine drains into a spigot in the u bend under your sink you will probably find a blockage here. you need to remove the drain hose and have a look in the hole.
if not when you remove the fluff filter have a look in the hole and make sure the drain pump turns freely. you can also run a drain spin cycle with the fluff filter removed and make sure the drain pump is working.
Power off the mains.The
filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at
bottom.Four screws hold it on.Drain
out all the water. The filter is inside
the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum.
the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip
holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big
which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To
put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball
into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir
Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic
clip.Check out the pump too before reconnecting.
you only need to check the filter once a month or so depending on what you wash - blankets for example give off a lot of fluff. to help prevent water spilling out when you check, put machine on drain and check filter while draining.
Your filter &/or pump could be blocked. Remove bottom panel three screws, unscrew filter cap (have lots of towels cause it will drain), remove filter & clean out. Refit. If you have manual refer to it.
Pl rate me if helped.
If there is a filter on this model, make sure it is clean, a lot of fluff and other stuff can accumulate in the filter preventing the water from draining fast enough. Sometimes the pump can get blocked with the same effect. Tom.
