Miele W1512 Washing Machine

First I got the "Waterproof Fault" thought I solved it by turning off, tipping washer forward to release excess water, then turn back on, worked for quite some time. Now however the machine just doesnt work,the display is normal showing time, program & progress etc. but drum just does not move, makes a noise as if it is. If I turn off completely inc. at the mains and turn back on the display just shows where it was at before unplugging.

Hello Ellen, welcome to fixya. I would begin by removing the rear panel and checking the belt and insure the basket pulley isn't loose as well. If the belt is in tack ( not broke ) but has come off that sometimes is caused by a loose or bent pulley, hence the suggestion to check the pulley. If the belt is broke, it may simply be a matter of normal "wear & tear" and just time to replace it. Hope that helps point you in the right direction. Please take a moment and rate this info according to it's helpfulness or let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for visiting "fixya" today and good luck. Macmarkus :)

SOURCE: Hello, I have a meile 1714

Hi Aaron from retired Englishman in SW France (nothing on TV!).

Although I do not know your particular machine most good manufacturers' machines have a water sensor sensing water on the bottom panel. We have the same with our dishwasher.
Unfortunately it does indicate that there is a leak- either a split in a hose or a hose has come off, although both of those one would not expect so soon- 4 years?
If you are confident and reasonably competent -
REMOVE POWER
then remove the back- presuming that the back does come off as I would expect it to!!
You might be able to see what is wrong.
If you are really competent, and only if you are, you could put the power back on and see/hear where the water is coming from. That's what I would do before calling out a service guy/gal in case I could fix the problem myself. It's up to you Ash 1979!

Good luck,

John C

Display shows 'fault waterproof'. what is wrong?


I have been trouble shooting my own Miele issue and may have found your answer, which seems to be easily fixed. Apparently one can reset the water fault sensor by tipping the machine forward at 45 degrees. If water comes out the bottom pan, then you will have reset the sensor. You should check for leaks especially in the door gasket. However if it comes on again, you probably have a leak that you need to address.

Miele W 1712 is giving a waterproof fault. I tried to switch the machine of and on but the alarm is still going - I am also not able to open the door. Regards Peter


I just received this error message on my Miele W 1712 (Waterproof Fault). Prior to this I had an error message regarding the Drain outlet, so I opened the drain outlet and cleaned it. I think I might have opened it too quickly and therefore creating the (Waterproof Fault). The problem is that when you open the drain outlet too quickly the water runs into the bottom of the washing machine where some sensor lies and you get the (Waterproof Fault) error message on the display and not even turning off the machine will do anything to get rid of this annoying message.
1. Turn off the machine
2. Unplug it
3. Open the drain outlet and take out the plug.
4. Dry all the visible water with a cotton cloth.
5. Tilt the machine FORWARD and hold it until you see water gushing from underneath the machine.
6. Repeat this until you see no more water.
7. Plug the machine back inn.
8 VOILA no error message! I hope in your case :)

Hi
There are two variant of this model one with normal fill hose and triple valve and one with waterproof system and triple valve. If you have change water proof hose (one with grey box on end) then it only leaves the triple valve.if waterproof hose is fitted be sure to order 110volt triple valve

Waterproof fault


I just received this error message on my Miele WPS 4146 (Waterproof Fault) Prior to this I had an error message regarding the Drain outlet, so I opened the drain outlet and cleaned it. I think I might have opened it too quickly and therefore creating the (Waterproof Fault). The problem is that when you open the drain outlet too quickly the water runs into the bottom of the washing machine where some sensor lies and you get the (Waterproof Fault) error message on the display and not even turning off the machine will do anything to get rid of this annoying message.

So here is the fix that worked for me.

1. Turn off the machine
2. Unplug it
3. Open the drain outlet and take out the plug.
4. Dry all the visible water with a cotton cloth.
5. Tilt the machine FORWARD and hold it until you see water gushing from underneath the machine.
6. Repeat this until you see no more water.
7. Plug the machine back inn.
8 VOILA no error message! I hope in your case :)
