Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

HELLO, I a 6mth old Miele washer dryer and i the last two weeks on two occasions the water protection system has activated which shuts the system down and a small amount of water has been left on the floor.The first occasion a tumble dry sheet was found in the drain plug,since that time i have not used these sheets.I used two lots of drain cleaner to ensure the outlet pipe to the drain is free fo any blockage and it is.At the present time it takes Miele 7 days to get to a customer.I wonder of the water protection system float could have developed a fault.

It sounds more like a pump problem than the float. They normally do not faulter but hey wonders do still excist. Unfortunately the machine is still under warranty and that makes it hard as you can not open the machine yourself.

The inlet soloid is the first thing to check, if that is operating correctly then unfortunately its a relay or such on the control board. The control boards can be very expensive though there is a man on ebay that will fix/replace at reasonable cost.

Miele Touchtronic W1213 Front Load Washer: The washer keeps adding and then draining water continuously. One time, the cycle ended and the machine continued to add water and drain endlessly....until I...


hi - If I remember correctly this particular series had a time related sequence built into the programme, whats happening is the timer has picked up the false readings when the pressure activates the switch.

Suggestions to look into - leave power off & turn water back on - does water run into the machine (faulty valve); turn power on initiate a cycle water runs, then turn power off - is water still running? (faulty valve)

From experiences on the field, theres a slim chance that the pressure tube has a hole in it from the vibrations over time. This effect will not create enough pressure in the tube to activate the pressure switch, the only other problem would be the pressure switch itself.

The red light for the drain came on durring a load. What could be the problem?


Hi, it means 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.

Wps code


Simply disconnect it. Water completes the circuit - so you want to make sure it is open.

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.
