SOURCE: waterproof system activated. close stopcock. The

Hi, it's caused by a leak of water into the tray at the bottom, which activates a sensor to shut the water in flow off and thus prevent a flood. The fix is as for a posting by halldor to a question about the w4146 - ie. Turn off and unplug, drain by the filter plug, lean the machine forward - the water flows out the bottom, plug in and it should work. You do need to establish the cause of the leak first. Mine was a draw cord on some trousers dangling out of the door, thus preventing a proper seal, the water dribbled down the front and into the tray. Miele stated it could only be fixed by their service mechanics

Why do need a waterproof spotting scope?

Many activities that include the use of scopes such as binoculars, spotting scopes and riflescopes take place outdoors, often in damp, humid or foggy conditions. Having waterproof binoculars, spotting scopes or rifle scopes will eliminate your concerns about moisture damage, including fogged over inner optics that are sure to ruin your day out! Some waterproof binoculars can even withstand short submersion's in shallow water so even accidentally dropping them in a puddle on a hike won't matter.

I have a Miele W 2389. Message saying waterproof system has activated. Turn off stop ****. What does it mean?

Hi Dear. Seems like your machine had internal leak. Float switch has been activated. That triggers error message on the display. What you can do is: Tilt the machine 45 degree (Back or forward which ever easy for you) wait for leaked water come out underneath the machine. If water comes out of machine, it's a indication of one of the plastic component failed(it could be drain hose- tub to pin trap hose- may be inlet valve etc....) If there is no water coming out of machine, float switch may be malfunctioning. In that cases you need to contact Miele center to get help.Thanks.

My miele wt 2679 wpm has appeared waterproof system to deactivate it.

Make sure the door is closed, then pull the plug out of the wall or turn off the 15 A breaker at the panel for 30 secondsd, then plug back in, or turn the breaker back on.

This is like a hard boot for a computer or to clear a problem which is locked like this.

That is the first easier fix to try first.

I hope this may help!

My miele dishwasher shows intake/drain light flashes, it seems to me that drain works but no water goes into the dishwasher

hi, firstly check the filter in the waterproof system where the tap is to make sure it is not blocked. turn off the water and remove the connection with the white box attached this is the waterproof system. remove the black seal and you will see the filter. pull it out with a pair of pliers and clean it.

if this is ok check to see if you have a restrictor on the tap or inside the tap and also make sure water is flowing from the tap prior to reconnecting the waterproof system.
run the unit again and when it is time for the machine to call for water you can manually fill it and see if it works using a saucepan or bucket. if this works ok you may have a stuck waterproof system and probably need to replace this.
Hope this helps

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.

No, the camera is not waterproof.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area until the flash icon appears on the left side of the display. This will activate the flash.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the flash symbol appears on the LCD screen. This forces the flash function.

Touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the eyeball icon appears on the left. This activates the red-eye reduction mode.

To turn off the flash, touch the lightning bolt icon area again until the no-flash icon (lightning bolt inside a circle) appears on the left.

This is covered on pages 13-14 of the manual. If you've misplaced your manual, you can download one from the manufacturer's web site at

MIele waterproof system reacted

That means that there is a leak that passed throught the waterproof system, and the water protection system had reacted putting the machine on error mode, as the water can damage electric parts, and cause serious hazard.

Sometimes you can reset the error by unplugging power cord, however you should call immediately a technician, as using the appliance when there is a problem with the waterproof system, you can be seriously injured by electric shock.
