Question about Miele W2203 Front Load Washer
my w2203 (3 yrs old) has gone mental... It wont stop spinning at max speed. have turned off at the mains, let it have a little rest, tried pessing all of the buttons at the same time (to see if there was some secret reset code...), .Emptied filter, some minor debris and the equiv of a large cup of water came out, but when you turn it back on it still jumps straight back into max spin.
thanks in advance
Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.
Your filter of the water inlet valve is accessible outside the machine; it is at the water entry point. Close your faucet & check this out; this gets clogged often.
Hope i am helpful...... Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

SOURCE: Miele W1926 water light flashes
As a temporary measure you might consider identifying the wires and jury rigging two valves to run together to increase the flow (of course you will lose pre-wash by doing this)

check your drain filter, get a wet vac and vacuum the water out, then open the drain plug at bottom and try to vacuum the drain to clear out debris......then turn on and test washer if it fills and drains if it fills with water and doesn't drain then your drain pump is defective........get your model number and source for a pump motor.................................
if it doesn't fill with water then your water fill switch is defective...............source for parts..............
if this helps out anyone a feed back would be good..........

Had exactly the same problem on our 12 year old Miele - thought it was a bit disappointing that the machine had only lasted 12 years! Took the filter out and cleaned it, did a 95 degree wash, ran a descale wash - still had the red light flashing. Then I removed the drain hose and found that it was completely blocked at the U-bend. Flushed it out and now it's perfect again.
