The flashing lights

My miele w504 washing machine decided to flood the utility room this morning. there are two flashing warning lights, saying, check the supply and check the filter, both supply and filter seem fine, I've blown down the waste tube (yuk)- no blockage there. any thing else to try? before I wait for two weeks before an engineer arrives?

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. Check your pump too after refering to your manual.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

Hi Kieron

Open door then turn off power. Undo 3 bolts around door seal. Remove soap draw. Undo the screws. Peel off door seal at front of machine and fold in towards drum. Metal spring catch located at bottom behind pump filter door. Now open up front of machine (its hinged on the right). Good luck

Spin light flashhes spin does not work


The Miele W864 model will flash a warning light and will refuse to spin when it considers its load to be unstable....What I mean is... if you put a blanket in it and the blanket is on one side of the drum, the computer decides that if the machine spins, the centre fugal force or whatever they call it, the weight of the thing inside, will make the machine move about dangerously and will therefore not spin... its a safety feature. My spelling is shocking... I will look at the manual. Which says the load is unstable... more or less... waterlogged garments, like blankets can do this.... I normally just fill it with towels, and wash twice or three times because I wont get a good wash when overloaded.xx

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.
