Load indicator not working

My Miele W2662 WPS has a Load % / Detergent % indicator - this does not currently work - I tried to zero the system as described in the manual by leaving the door open, turning the machine off and back on again, setting the dial to Cottons 95deg and pressing the load / detergent button until the system zeroed itself - this seemed to turn this function off! Does anybody know how to turn this function back on again.

I ended up having to call Samsung support for this same question. Left to right two vertical bars = detergent (liquid or Powder) flower = softner, single vertical bar = bleach.

Maybe you need to use a water softener? sometimes the water is very "hard" some people even have to use a water conditioning filter on the water in..

SOURCE: Miele 435-plus washing machine Problem: water

There's a hose or tube that goes from the dispenser cavity to the tub that is likely clogged. Small clothing can be siphoned into the hose or tube and block the water path causing it to leak out to the dispenser drawer. Locate the hose/tube port in the tub where the blockage may be located, if not, you have to remove the front panel fully access and take the hose/tube out for inspection.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the machine and slide it rearward and off. Remove the dispenser drawer then the screws securing the console to the machine cabinet. Lift the console off then remove the screws securing the front panel to the cabinet. Slightly lean the front panel forward and disconnect the door lock and switch assembly wire harness. Remove the front panel and set it it aside. The hose/tube can now be fully accessed for inspection. Reassemble the machine in reverse order of the disassembly steps.

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.

W4840 water proof system activated how to reset

1. Unplug the washer
2. Tilt the machine forward about 45 degrees
3. Water will start pouring out from the base pan. Have some towels handy to clean up.
4. Put the machine back in its position
5. Plug it
7. You should be ready to go


- You may be using too much detergent. Try lesser amount next time.
- There is a leak. If using less detergent does not solve it and this message keeps coming back, then the leak needs to be investigated.

Have a Miele W320, during the rinse part of wash cycle, water pours from underneath the detergent drawer. What can I do to stop this happening?

Is the drawer gunged up? Are you using too much detergent?

Remove the drawer, and clean it with hot water and a brush.

Look into the empty drawer slot for any blockages and remove.

Replace drawer, try pouring hot water into the open drawer to try to dissolve and clear any blockages.

Consider using a dosing ball and adding detergent to the drum.

My miele touchtronic w 3039 will not start. the waterproof system activated keeps blinking in the display window with the start button blinking as well and beeping


Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.

You may just have over sudded the unit by using the wrong detergent or too much. After you have the unit running again test the unit with no detergent and see if you activate the waterproof system again. if you do then you will probably have a split hose inside the unit.

My miele machine tends to bleach my clothes.

I would run a few cycles with just water added to the bleach dispenser, clean it out, and see if that helps.

Soap suds on the door at the end of a wash cycle. Miele E526

With all modern front loading washers, you might find that the amount of detergent you need is much less than what is recommended by the detergent makers!

First, be sure you're using the He (High Efficiency) detergent and try using only 2 or 3 tablespoons of detergent. If you've heavily stained clothes, be sure to pre-treat them rather than adding more detergent. That should also help with the extra soap left in the clothes after a complete wash cycle.

Give this a try and adjust the detergent as needed to get the best results for your situation.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regard!

there is still water in the waterproof tray at the bottom of the machine and the float switch has activated. pull the machine out (if pipes allow) and tip the machine backwards to drain the water from the tray.

you have activated the float switch in the base of the unit due to a water leak. this could be just excess detergent or an actual leak. if you tip the unit forward with some towels in front this will drain out the water. try running again with no detergent. if it doesn't show WPS after a couple of washes then you are ok. then change your detergent.

Miele novo w526

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.
