Hi, it's caused by a leak of water into the tray at the bottom, which activates a sensor to shut the water in flow off and thus prevent a flood. The fix is as for a posting by halldor to a question about the w4146 - ie. Turn off and unplug, drain by the filter plug, lean the machine forward - the water flows out the bottom, plug in and it should work. You do need to establish the cause of the leak first. Mine was a draw cord on some trousers dangling out of the door, thus preventing a proper seal, the water dribbled down the front and into the tray. Miele stated it could only be fixed by their service mechanics

My miele wt 2679 wpm has appeared waterproof system activated.how to deactivate it.


Make sure the door is closed, then pull the plug out of the wall or turn off the 15 A breaker at the panel for 30 secondsd, then plug back in, or turn the breaker back on.

This is like a hard boot for a computer or to clear a problem which is locked like this.

That is the first easier fix to try first.

I hope this may help!

What does 3 flashes pause than 3 flashes over and over on a Viper 3105V one way alarm system mean?


The three-flash, wait, three-flash sequence indicates that either the nuisance prevention circuitry or another fault has been registered by Zone 3 or the door sensor. Nuisance prevention circuity is automatically activated when there are several faulty activation codes sent to a sensor. In turn, the door sensor is bypassed by the alarm which keeps the system quiet. This only happens when a specific threshold is reached in specific activation codes that are sent from the door sensor to the alarm cpu.

It would seem inadvisable to disable the door sensor when it is receiving faults. It might indicate someone is trying to boost your car. However, it is not as inadvisable as you might think.

The faults that activate the nuisance circuity tend to be lower-level faults and not the major ones that might trip the door sensor such as someone trying to slip the door lock or someone who might smash a window. In those instances, even though the nuisance circuity was tripped, the alarm will still work and sound, if it receives major faults such as the attempted to slip the door lock or the windows is broken.

The nuisance circuitry is meant to prevent the alarm from activating for multiple impacts to the door such as those that might be called during a high wind or if pieces of wood were blown against the car during a high wind.

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 :)

My miele dishwasher shows intake/drain light flashes, it seems to me that drain works but no water goes into the dishwasher


hi, firstly check the filter in the waterproof system where the tap is to make sure it is not blocked. turn off the water and remove the connection with the white box attached this is the waterproof system. remove the black seal and you will see the filter. pull it out with a pair of pliers and clean it.

if this is ok check to see if you have a restrictor on the tap or inside the tap and also make sure water is flowing from the tap prior to reconnecting the waterproof system.
run the unit again and when it is time for the machine to call for water you can manually fill it and see if it works using a saucepan or bucket. if this works ok you may have a stuck waterproof system and probably need to replace this.
Hope this helps

My miele touchtronic w 3039 will not start. the waterproof system activated keeps blinking in the display window with the start button blinking as well and beeping


Hi,

Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.

You may just have over sudded the unit by using the wrong detergent or too much. After you have the unit running again test the unit with no detergent and see if you activate the waterproof system again. if you do then you will probably have a split hose inside the unit.

No water fill


This is a typical Anti Flood system activation. This system activates when water leaks onto the floor of the machiene due to a leak fault (pipe/hose clamp/ partly blocked pipe). The machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and stops water inlet. The anti flood system is a polystireen float / micro switch at the base of the machiene floor. Dry the floor and drectify the leak and it should work.

MIele waterproof system reacted


That means that there is a leak that passed throught the waterproof system, and the water protection system had reacted putting the machine on error mode, as the water can damage electric parts, and cause serious hazard.

Sometimes you can reset the error by unplugging power cord, however you should call immediately a technician, as using the appliance when there is a problem with the waterproof system, you can be seriously injured by electric shock.
