Just had the same problem, after Much patience and persistence I found the blockage at the y piece that joins the pump to the outlet hose air trap towards the top of the machine LHS with the top and cover off.

It was clogged solid therefore no back pressure on the top little ball valve (between the air trap and the outlet) therefore no seal therefore norain therefore a drain-fault that persists regardless of a cleaned pump filter.

I have a w3840 miele washer fault code comes on drain fault check drain we remove filter clean put back together for a few more washes- light comes back on same fault take apart etc what more can i do

I had the same fault, and I fixed it in a rather strange way. There was a blockage in the drain tube cause by the stalk off an apple and lots of lint backed up against it.

Remove the drain hose from the back. Put a hosepipe down it, wrap a cloth around it and hold it together tightly as someone turns the hose on for 20 seconds. The machine will start to fill, so keep the door closed. Do it over a bucket. Turn the hose off, and then lower the hose into the bucket. Lots of lint will come out! Check the filter. Do the same thing with the hose again, check the filter again, this is when we found the apple stalk. Run the machine.

Miele Touchtronic w1203 , the intake and drain fault indicator lights are both flashing at the same time

Seems that the inlet valve or water flow is low , check the inlet flow or check for clogged filter.
Also check the lint filter and the cache filter. remove and clean drain pump. This must solve the issue.

Miele Novotronic W 833 won't drain


if your washing machine drains into a spigot in the u bend under your sink you will probably find a blockage here. you need to remove the drain hose and have a look in the hole.

if not when you remove the fluff filter have a look in the hole and make sure the drain pump turns freely. you can also run a drain spin cycle with the fluff filter removed and make sure the drain pump is working.

Check drain keeps flashing and machine wont drain even though drain is not blocked. I have removed and cleaned out debris in the drain filter but the problem persists.

You need to check fault is not upstream from the filter/ is it the pump? thats jammed due to sock or coin also check hoses leading to the filter are clear..

There is a float switch in a pan under the machine. This pan is probably full and the float switch is causing the Intake & Drain fault signal. You can lean the machine over to towards the front to partially drain the pan. Put a towel down to catch the water. When you put the machine level again the fault lights should be out. The real question is where did the water come from. You can easily remove the top (4 screws, 1 on each side behind the little plastic caps and 1 on each side of the back. Torx heads) and look down inside while you start the cycle. Look for leaks.
Good Luck,

Miele novotronic w930i washing machine

The machine thinks its flooded. Simply remove the drain cover filter and tilt the machine forward until water stops running out. Turn on machine and problem solved
