Question about Miele Washing Machines
Hi My Miele w460 starts normally, fills with water and then the check inlet light flashes, three dashes appear in the timer display and the machine stops. At this point the machine is full of water - too much really. It appears to fill correctly and then is not able to tell itself to stop. I have checked the incoming hoses / cleaned the inlet valve / checked the water pressure / the machine fills with water at the normal rate / the machine drains at the normal rate / I have cleaned the front drain / I have tipped the machine forward to empty all the water out / I have checked the water is spraying into the detergent drawer and it is OK too. To get rid of the full drum of water I put it on spin and drain but as there is a lot of water it seeps out of the detergent drawer. Does anyone have any ideas please ? Many thanks !
Either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

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.

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

Most likely to be the brushes in the motor that need to be replaced, check them for wear, and if less than 4 or 5 mm long, replace them.
