If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

Poor quality wash from miele w2240 and washing smells stagnant. We use a good washing powder and softener. The machine is 7 years old. Should we buy a new one?


The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hello. I think this is the looks

Well Bridie no there is no lint filter inside your washer the only possible explanation, is either old lint and particles are coming from previous washes. or you have just washed something recently that may have come apart such as a pillow, a mat with a rubber backing, or even a blanket with any sort of fiber material in it. It is more than likely that much of the lint that goes through your machine is unseen and can cause pump issues. hope this helps.

Can you hear the drain pump running??....If so the WPS system has been activated and there is water in the base.
If not, please post back if any water is going into the main wash compartment once it's started. No water, then faulty inlet valve.

Miele washing machine

All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
