Miele Touchtronic w1203 , the intake and drain fault indicator lights are both flashing at the same time

Seems that the inlet valve or water flow is low , check the inlet flow or check for clogged filter.
Also check the lint filter and the cache filter. remove and clean drain pump. This must solve the issue.

Miele W1203 washing maching manual

There are a few things that will prevent your machine from spinning properly. Excess suds do to too much detergent or too strong of a detergent is being used. If you live in the U.S. you need to be using HE detergent. The other factor is your drain trap is clogged inside the machine. You can try doing a sanitize cycle with half a liter of white vinegar. If this doesn't help then the front panel will have to come off, the drain trap will have to be removed and cleaned manually.

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.

Miele W1203 washer drain and intake lights flashed together and now will not change modes. Can I reset it so that it will work again?

The flood protection device has activated. This is caused by a leak in the machine. It can also be caused if you are not careful when checking the drain pump,water may have gone back into appliance and activated flood protection device. If this is the case Tip machine forward,water in base of appliance will run out, and appliance will work. If Fault reoccurs then you have a leak.

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,

Front lower left corner has an access door.  Pry the access door open.  Inside you will find a yellow tab that will open the machine glass bubble door. Below the yellow tab is a cca. 2.5 inch screw-in plug.  Place a pan in front of the machine and unscrew to plug.  Water will drain out of the machine.  With the plug removed, tilt the machine forward past 45 degrees until all water has drained out.  This will reset the washer.  Insert the screw-in plug.
