Below is how error codes are deciphered by the cycle lights and water level light. This should help diagnose the failure. I recommend to have service technician diagnose and repair your washer.
LONG DRAIN error code will cause the NORMAL, PERM PRESS, and HANDWASH cycle led lights to come on and the WATER LEVEL light to blink.
If the drain time exceeds 6 minutes, the wash cycle will stop. Push the START/OFF button to reset the mode, a drain task is executed and the previously selected cycle resumes.
POTENTIAL CAUSES:

  • Drain pump failure.
  • Drain hose: check for proper connection, kinks or clogs.
  • Pressure switch contact failure.
INCORRECT FILL WATER LEVEL error code will cause the HEAVY DUTY, PERM PRESS, and HANDWASH cycle led lights to come on and the WATER LEVEL light to blink.
Wash cycle stops. Press START/OFF button to enter Standby mode. Execute a Diagnostic Test to drain the water.
POTENTIAL CAUSES:
  • Incorrect electrical connection to pressure switch.
  • Pressure switch contact failure.
  • Pressure switch is defective.
  • Pressure switch hose is damaged or loose.
  • Air dome is clogged.
  • Drain hose: check for proper height, kinks or clogs.
UNEXPECTED FILL DURING AGITATION OR SOAK error code will cause the HEAVY DUTY, NORMAL, and the HANDWASH cycle lights to to come on and the WATER LEVEL light to blink.
The pressure switch contact selected has opened during agitation task. The wash cycle stops and a Drain task is executed. Once the Drain is complete, the cycle stops.
Push the START/OFF button to reset the operation mode, a Fill task is executed and the previously selected cycle resumes.
POTENTIAL CAUSES:
  • Water or clothes were removed from basket after Fill task was complete.
  • Pressure switch hose is damaged or loose.
  • Drain hose is improperly connected.
  • Water leaking from washer tub.
SLOW FILL error code will cause the HEAVY DUTY,NORMAL, and PERM PRESS cycle lights to come on and the WATER LEVEL light to blink.
If the Fill task exceeds 20 minutes, the wash cycle stops. Push the START/OFF button to reset the operation mode, a Fill task is executed according to previous Wash Temp selection and the previously selected cycle resumes.
POTENTIAL CAUSES:
  • Water inlet valve is clogged or damaged.
  • Water pressure is too low.
  • Water hose is closed/clogged.
  • Water supply faucet(s) turned off.
Hope that helps..........

Miele W1213 intake, drain and 3 - - - faults


Have had this since 2007 or 2008. Pain in the backside.
Fixed it by:
Cleaning drain.
Unplugging from power.
Tilting forward to drain water for 1-2 mins.
Made sure that the clear plastic light ***** in the rubber opening which located at the top was tight as it tends to get loose if you have an off-balance load.
Plugged power back in.
Boom, she started up.

This is a great washer/dryer, but it's expensive to fix if you need a repairman and it's a bit of voodoo if you need to do the above.

Intake and drain light is on after using too much detergent. checked for clogged drains...


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is if its draining properly as it could be that the drain hose is clogged and needs to be cleaned. If you have not checked already then also check that the drain pump also should not be clogged. Also the stopcock should be opened fully and the water inlet valve should be checked for any clogs. After checking this you can reset the error as follows: turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. then switch the appliance off and then back on again. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Used too much soap...miele flooded the floor....drain fault buzzer blinking what do I do?


Hi,

by using too much detergent the float for water leaks inside the unit would have lifted and triggered the light to light. to clear the fault have some towels around the front of the unit on the floor and gently tip the unit forward and allow the water to escape. the float will drop down and you will be able to use the machine again.
any remaining water in the unit will just dry up. no damage would be done it happens all the time.

No Power lights, anything, on a Miele W1213 washer.


make sure the door is closed properly and push it hard as this completes the light circuit on the display and then allows the unit to work.

How to fix a Miele W1213 Touchtronics washer when the intake and drain light is blinking? power for drain motor is only 20V drain motor not working,but I am tested with 220V end is o.k.


Unfortunately you need a Service Rep out there to check the electronics - how old is the machine? - Warranty? the drain pump should be 220 or 120 depending on the model.

Clean the drain by opening the door on the bottum left.
Use the yellow plastic thingy in the front of the soap drawer to do it.

You can open the machine door by pulling the yellow tag in the bottom door.
Drain the water through the filter, clean the filter and close.

Then unplug the machine and tilt it forward by about 1 foot until you see water coming out of the bottom (put towel on floor).

Plug back in and voila!

I do think that this machine is a major pain. No spin cycle and this kind of stuff to go through. Anyone want to buy mine?
