Question about Washing Machines

Miele Front loader washing machine w 980 wps

The machine stops completely, no lights as if it had been switched off at the socket. Sometimes it restarts after a while and completes the cycle, sometimes it alarms and the timer shows a series of three dashes and the red "check inlet" light comes on. We cannot find the instruction booklet. The machine was bought in 2000.

My miele w3725 front loader washing machine appears to be leaking drops of oil into the wash and staining the clothes. What could be the cause?


Hi dear,
Seems like your washer has bearing seal damage. It will be expensive repair. You may contact Miele to get a quote. Thanks.

I have a Miele W404SB WPS washing machine. Water leaks out of the door during the washing cycle. Do you have any suggestions how I can stop this. Regards, Teresa Rooney


1. Make sure the washer is level first, with a small torpedo level at the top center edge of the washer ,check at the front and one side. If its not, adjust the 2 front level foot adjusters (at the front of the unit where they touch the floor) to level the washer.
2. If level is ok, check the door seal and replace if cracked or torn or old and hardened.
3. If ok, look at the latch on the door and the washer. Some have an adjustment for how far the door closes to latch. There will be 2 screws or small bolts you will loosen to slide the lever or the latch plate to adjust so the door closes tighter.
4. If ok, then the water level sensor will have to be replaced by a qualified tech.

Hi I have a miele W460 WPS Washing machine which has today stopped working it has 2 flashing red lights next to check inlet outlet warning. I have done this and both are fine. How do I get it to start...


my advice open the pump filter at the bottom of the machine (on left side) ensure all is empy.
the other option is turn off the machine at the maions using a vax water hoover (or any wet and dry vacume cleaner) remove the wast pipe from sink put the hover pipe to the washing machine and **** out all the water.
sould this also fail you would need to open the machine and check the bottom on the floor (inside the machine where all the workings are) there is a cut off trigger make sure this is completely clear of any thing there would be a polystireene base with a button trigger if this is activeted it will stop the machine and cause it to continuesly run the pump this should resolve the issue please let me know how you get on i can come out into certain areas to see to this machine but i charge £50 labour charge 9 out of every 10 of theese i manage to get going again let me know my email is carlwallis20@hotmail.com

there is still water in the waterproof tray at the bottom of the machine and the float switch has activated. pull the machine out (if pipes allow) and tip the machine backwards to drain the water from the tray.

Miele washer-dryer


you have activated the float switch in the base of the unit due to a water leak. this could be just excess detergent or an actual leak. if you tip the unit forward with some towels in front this will drain out the water. try running again with no detergent. if it doesn't show WPS after a couple of washes then you are ok. then change your detergent.

Miele novo w526


Can you hear the drain pump running??....If so the WPS system has been activated and there is water in the base.
If not, please post back if any water is going into the main wash compartment once it's started. No water, then faulty inlet valve.
