Question about Miele Washing Machines
The drain light keeps coming on and I have had to empty it manually 3 times and it is full of water. I have checked the troubleshooting manual and the drain filter was empty, the impeller is rotating freely. It did chew up a fluffy bath mat last week and I wondered if the fluff was now locking the outlet hose....but it was fine for a week. I don't know how to check this hose or what else to do. I don't really understand the difference between the fluff filter the drain filter and the drain pump as mentions in the manual. I have simply drained it and check that there are no objects and that the impeller is moving. Any help will be gratefully received....kids coming home from uni very soon!!! Best regards, Sylvia
You probably have a blocked sump. Empty the machine by hand and remove as much water as possible because you will need to remove the sump hose which is under the machine, place a shallow bowl or dish under it before taking it off or you could flood the floor. I've no idea what machine or model you have but you will probably need to tilt the machine away from the sump (if it is at the rear of the machine then tilt it forward ) undo the clamp holding it on and carefully pull it free from the tub, clean it out and replace it

what I have found is that the washer thinks it is not pumping out .. if your drain pump is clearly removing the all the water in a good time... then the problem is your pressure switch...it is telling the computer that it still has water in the machine...
replace the pressure switch and it will solve your f21 error.
It is a round unit on the right hand side on top...with a tube and wires going to it...let me know if it helps

It was suggested that the pump had failed and taken out the programmer with it - expensive! Wife wouldn't wait, and bought new machine. Problem almost solved - anyone want an out of order washing machine?

SOURCE: W640 - Water Outlet Fault
I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.
Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.
Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.

The REGULAR CYCLE button turns the drain pump on or off. The REGULAR LED will turn
on when the pump is on. This feature can be used to drain the tub. You could get a bucket and lay the hose on the fllor. Gravity will drain it down.
