W640 - Water Outlet Fault

Intermittently, we are receiving a "water outlet fault" indication. There ISstill water in the machine. I open the drain pump cover and empty the bowl via the drain hose - the end of which is secured to the inside of the cover. Once empty, the pump is opened and there are no foreign objects to be found. Also, the pump blade tiurns quite freely.

The machine, is restarted - typically we use a rinse cycle - and it runs fine for the next few weeks.

I'm about to try and find the workshop manual for this machine, but would appreciate any tips in the interim.
Thanks

    Exactly the same - I have to manually drain after every load. There are not coins or anything in there. It sounds like it is draining fine through hose in back of machine. Just stops cycle with "Fault indication - Water Outlet Fault.

    I eventually resolved this by replacing the water pump. Even though there appeared to be no binds in the mechanism and the problem was quite intermittent, I replaced the water (drain) pump and the m/c has worked without problem for several weeks.

I solved this problem this morning, after several months with intermittent "water outlet fault" error messages.

Our pin trap was cleared many times over the months. The propellor turned freely. However, the problem persisted.
So I unplugged the machine, removed the back panel (8 or so hex screws) and located the point where the drainage hose meets the water draining pump. I then separated the hose from the pump and found 2 United States 10-cent pieces lodged together with gunk that effectively blocked the drainage hose. 10-cent pieces ("dimes") are the perfect diameter to get stuck there and not appear in the pin trap where you could easily see and remove them.

Three loads later, the machine is working according to spec. Hope this helps.

I too removed the back panel, but could not figure out how to remove the hose without damaging the clamp. Fortunately the washer has an extended warranty. The tech, removed the FRONT panel below the pin trap (attached by two torq screws.) The hose is just pulled off the pump with clamp attached. Found by poking a allen wrench into the opening of hose, 2 US 10-cent pieces with some lint! Re-attach hose with clamp remaining in place.

First of all remove the hose and drain off water then open the door . Once the drain pump outlet filters and the inlet filters are checked, check for free flow. If the cycle does not start check for power output from the controller on pump and motor. If not the board is a suspect.

I have Beco WM616 7W washing machine...when I start washing...water should filled in washing machine but it comes out from somewere..all programms working...just water comes from bottom..


Check all your hose connections. Sounds as if the drain hose has come loose or burst. (common fault in all machines).
Open soap drawer, and check that water is flowing into it.
If no water is flowing into it, looks like the water connection hose at rear is not secure.
If water is flowing into the drawer, but not staying in the drum, then check the drainage outlet hose is secure and undamaged.

Washer runs its corse but water will not strain


It is a common fault that the drain fails to work in most machines in a period of time and is the most problematic fault in a washing machine. In all occasions it is important that your observation is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve can be clogged. Now remove the drain hose clamps and remove the drain pump/valve, clean the drain pump/valve, use back flushing to clear off all dirt. Now test using power to see if this works and can be simulated. When refitting, the hose must be tightened properly. If the pump/valve does not work even with power then it must be replaced. If there is intermittent power to the drain valve/pump then the program controller unit is a suspect.

Finally the washer must be placed with a tilt- use a spirit level- so that all water will drain to the outlet port and thereby there is no residual water remaining.

Miele W 1712 is giving a waterproof fault. I tried to switch the machine of and on but the alarm is still going - I am also not able to open the door. Regards Peter


I just received this error message on my Miele W 1712 (Waterproof Fault). Prior to this I had an error message regarding the Drain outlet, so I opened the drain outlet and cleaned it. I think I might have opened it too quickly and therefore creating the (Waterproof Fault). The problem is that when you open the drain outlet too quickly the water runs into the bottom of the washing machine where some sensor lies and you get the (Waterproof Fault) error message on the display and not even turning off the machine will do anything to get rid of this annoying message.
1. Turn off the machine
2. Unplug it
3. Open the drain outlet and take out the plug.
4. Dry all the visible water with a cotton cloth.
5. Tilt the machine FORWARD and hold it until you see water gushing from underneath the machine.
6. Repeat this until you see no more water.
7. Plug the machine back inn.
8 VOILA no error message! I hope in your case :)

Asko w640 has a water inlet fault


Check the drain line to make sure the water does not siphon out as it enters the machine.

Asko W640 water outlet fault


If you get the water fault after checking the lower drain, you may need to remove the drain hose in the back. Usually there is a dime in the hose or the hard part right before the hose.

2. Unplug it
3. Open the drain outlet and take out the plug.
4. Dry all the visible water with a cotton cloth.
5. Tilt the machine FORWARD and hold it until you see water gushing from underneath the machine.

see if there is a blockage in the level switch. the switch operates on air pressure within the dip tube and the diaphragm in the switch. there may be a spider's nest in the tube or a wasp's nest in the tube.

Aeg 72630 update will not rinse during rinse cycle


If the drain lines were plugged, there may have been enough pressure on the pump to fault out. Make sure the sewer line is completely open, as well as the lines at the pump.
