How do I fix Miele W2104 as check drain light keeps coming on?

I am trying to wash and when I turn the machine on it starts off by trying to pump out water. Then shortly after machine hums and check drain light comes on. I have tried turning it off at wall hoping it would reset but nothing. Please help.

SOURCE: miele washing machine wont drain

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
hoses
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.


* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.

SOURCE: Cant remove drain pump cap of bosch washing macine

I just replaced my drain pump on my BOSCH washing machine WFL2060-so almost identical to yours. When I posted my question, I was told that it was a pain to do, that many repairmen refuse to do it etc.... even that the front panel does not come off. Well, I am a fairly petite (by athletic) woman, and very far from being an expert at repairing anything....
I just did it in less than 45 minutes with a screw driver and a pair of pliers (and a bit of common sense). Here is the protocol:
1- UNPLUG your machine
2- drain any water that could be left inside (at the bottom front right, you will find a small door: open it, the filter and the small black hose are there)
3- . put an old blanket on the floor behind your machine and a piece of wood long enough to go across the width of your machine- place it half way to what will be the height of your machine once it lies down on the floor- this will save your fingers in case you loose grip of the machine while tilting it down on its back...
4- tilt your machine back and down on its back: use your thigh muscles as the machine si a bit heavy (if you have a friend help you that will be easier-but I did it alone...
5- remove the bottom front panel (2 screws)
6- above the filter access you will see 1 to 3 screws: take them off
7- from the bottom of your machine, take out the electric plug at the back of the pump's motor
8- using your pliers (and a good grip) loosen the metallic braces that hold the 2 hoses and slide them down along each of the hoses
9- the unit will come off into your hand.
10- replace the unit with the new one
11- screw the unit back
12 plug the wires back
13 reposition the hoses (you cannot go wrong, they are on wither side of the pump)
14- slide the braces back onto the hose+pump outlet
15- tilt your machine back
16- plug your machine
17- you are ready for your load!
AND... you have saved about $200 without the part (I ordered it, paid $49 and was delivered to me within 2 business days!)

I have a w3840 miele washer fault code comes on drain fault check drain we remove filter clean put back together for a few more washes- light comes back on same fault take apart etc what more can i do


I had the same fault, and I fixed it in a rather strange way. There was a blockage in the drain tube cause by the stalk off an apple and lots of lint backed up against it.

Remove the drain hose from the back. Put a hosepipe down it, wrap a cloth around it and hold it together tightly as someone turns the hose on for 20 seconds. The machine will start to fill, so keep the door closed. Do it over a bucket. Turn the hose off, and then lower the hose into the bucket. Lots of lint will come out! Check the filter. Do the same thing with the hose again, check the filter again, this is when we found the apple stalk. Run the machine.

    Miele novitronic w830. Drain wont work. I've cleaned the outlet of dirt and the wheel inside the outlet is spinning freely. Reggadles, red light comes up.


    Hi,

    Have you tried checking the drain spigot under the sink where the waste hose connects as it can be blocked at this end?
    Try draining the unit into a bucket instead of the sink this will eliminate the washing machine as being the problem if it works ok.

    is the drain pump actually turning? select drain or drain spin and have the fluff filter (outlet) removed so you can see if it is turning. if it isn't turning there maybe a broken wire to the drain pump causing it not to turn or the drain pump is jammed with something although you mentioned you could spin it freely.

    hope this helps
