If you are sure that you made no mistake in mounting the brush cap back on the motor (check the four pins), most probably the electronic EL200 is defective.
This happens often in this type of machine when the shock absorbers are worn (after 10 years).
You can check this by measuring the continuity in the little 6.3A fuse that is on the EL200. If it is blown, you may get the PCB repaired for 55 Euros + shipping (see link below). You also have to replace the shock absorbers (32 Euros) to get a full year guarantee. Miele Reparatie EL200
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
Hi - I will tell you whats wrong with the machine, but you will need to get someone familiar with Miele equipment to fix it for you.
On this particular series - Rinse LED flashing means 3 - 4 things could be wrong with the washer.
Tacho - generator is faulty
Drive fault - electrical problem
Motor - has issues with starting
Blockage - drains - drive unit
Restrictions - of the drum turning.
Electronics - may be a component with an intermittent failure/decay.
It would be either one of the above or a combination of 1 or the other...
