Miele 1203 washer failed during a cycle and buzzer on no fault lights

During cycle buzzer came on and no fault lights but pump running. had repair guy in and he played with sump switch and then machine worked for 2 weeks ok. Now failed again same way when poered on the buzzer is on and pump runs and no other indiactor on but power. press the buzzer button and buzzer off but pump keeps running no other indcators. I have checked sump switch and it is working normally float not stuck and switch measures ok but still fails. I suspect open wire or something else on panel wrong.

Washer is not spinning the clothes

What is the make and model? It is most likely a balance switch or lid switch fault causing the issue.

Miele W1213 intake, drain and 3 - - - faults

Have had this since 2007 or 2008. Pain in the backside.
Fixed it by:
Cleaning drain.
Unplugging from power.
Tilting forward to drain water for 1-2 mins.
Made sure that the clear plastic light ***** in the rubber opening which located at the top was tight as it tends to get loose if you have an off-balance load.
Plugged power back in.
Boom, she started up.

This is a great washer/dryer, but it's expensive to fix if you need a repairman and it's a bit of voodoo if you need to do the above.

Hey there, i got a miele w4800 front load washer that stopped working all of the sudden. The buzzer is going crazy and the drain and intake fault lights are flashing. Any ideas of how i could fix this...

You have water in the bottom pan of the machine. grab it at the back and tilt it forward. the water will run out and it will start working again, but you will probably need a concertina hose. This is the hose that connects the detergent compartment to the wash drum.

Used too much soap...miele flooded the floor....drain fault buzzer blinking what do I do?


by using too much detergent the float for water leaks inside the unit would have lifted and triggered the light to light. to clear the fault have some towels around the front of the unit on the floor and gently tip the unit forward and allow the water to escape. the float will drop down and you will be able to use the machine again.
any remaining water in the unit will just dry up. no damage would be done it happens all the time.

There is a float switch in a pan under the machine. This pan is probably full and the float switch is causing the Intake & Drain fault signal. You can lean the machine over to towards the front to partially drain the pan. Put a towel down to catch the water. When you put the machine level again the fault lights should be out. The real question is where did the water come from. You can easily remove the top (4 screws, 1 on each side behind the little plastic caps and 1 on each side of the back. Torx heads) and look down inside while you start the cycle. Look for leaks.
Good Luck,
