Look for a level sensor tube low on the machine, it may go to a small container or such. Then a signal tube will go to a switch that controls the pump. Check all this stuff for debris, loose connections, etc.

    Each machine is different, but the components are similar. I'm not familiar with your unit, just giving general advice.

SOURCE: miele novotronic w/m fault light flashing

We had the same problem on a Premier 500 and solved it by tilting the machine forward. Some more water ran out and the lights went off.

SOURCE: how do you open front panel on miele w864 to clean

Hi - in most cases there are three screws behind the door, 2 screws for the door lock, some models will require the removal of soap dish and screws.

Should not be the case here, 2 screws on the lower part of the front panel, open the small trap door bottom RH corner unscrew cap to remove the rubbish from the drain pump as this shuts off the machine too.

Be careful to have a contaner to catch H2O as the cap unscrews.

F-05 flashing on my Hotpoint W860 but it's full of water, how do i fix


The F-05 error indicates that the drain is clogged or the pressure switch is stuck. Get a bucket to minimize flooding your washer area. Turn off the washer. Then pull the drain hose from the waste pipe and check for blockages. Check the waste pipe as well. Some find boiling water will clear the blockage. See if the machine will drain when you turn it back on.

Next check the filter is clogged This is near the pump and accessed from the back of the unit. Again you will a bucket to collect the water when you look at this. Next check the hoses at the dispenser for solidified detergent and such (take off the top cover and disconnect the flexible hoses). Finally check the rubber pipe connected to the pressure switch for a blockage.

If none of the above solve the problem, the pressure switch is probably faulty and should be replaced.

I hope this helps.

Whirlpool dihwasher adp 4552. Water comes into dishwasher, appears to start cycle then water is drained out again and light flashes to show a problem!


This is a typical anti flood activation due to the anti flood device (polystireen float and micro switch) at the base of the washer detecting a water leak / spill. This device puts the washer in pump out mode. Check to see if water at the base is causing the polystireene float to activate the switch. Dry the water and rectify the fault (normally a leaky pipe or pipe clamp) and this should solve the problem.

No water fill


This is a typical Anti Flood system activation. This system activates when water leaks onto the floor of the machiene due to a leak fault (pipe/hose clamp/ partly blocked pipe). The machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and stops water inlet. The anti flood system is a polystireen float / micro switch at the base of the machiene floor. Dry the floor and drectify the leak and it should work.

Anti flood device has activated on my zanussi ZDF231,also there is quite aloud whirring sound ,like a motor struggling to work


The anti flood activates when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water.

Favorit 43070 vi leak


I assume that this leak is from the flat tank on the side of the machiene. Any water leak to the bottom of the machiene puts the washer in ANTI FLOOD mode with the pump out motor activated. You can remove the flat tank by disconnecting the hoses to it and pulling it upwards. If you find a small leak just run it over with a hot soldering iron to melt closed the small leak. Also note that this tank has a small outlet pipe that deliberatly discharges water to the anti flood device (polystireen float / micro switch at the base of washer) in case of a fault (blocked pipe / leak etc).

Need to know how to re-set the anti-flood device


I managed to clean the filter inside the dishwasher and drain a little residual water. I then re-plugged in the appliance and the anti-flood device seemed to reset and I have n't had any problems since.
