In the bottom of your machine the is a tray in the tray the is a float, if the machine leaks the float lifts and hits a switch activating the two light on the facia. The is a leak either in the machine (sump hose) or around the machine drain etc. By tipping the machine you are emptying the tray thus allow it to work. You will need to find the cause of the leak. My best guess is the sump hose has been damaged by hair clip or pin. You may need to remove front panel to check hose etc.

Miele washing machine w 487 check drain and check inlet


Clean out the pump trap. If you are on well water or just have very hard water, your inlet valve may be becoming constricted as well, remove the fill hoses from the back of the machine and shine a bright light into the valve to see if the screens are getting clogged with debris: In this case, follow the instructions the computer is giving you.

Washer leaking


fix it. God bless you
Water Inlet Valve
If the hose connections are good to the water inlet valve check that water is not leaking from the valve itself it is replace the water inlet valve.

Drain Pump
Check the drain pump housing and all hose connections. The drain pump is down under neath. To disassemble your washer follow the appropiate tutorial. Hoses can be tightened. If hoses or pump housing is leaking replace the pump assembly.

Tub Seal
This is in the center of the tub. The seal is inexpensive but will require some labor to install. Check the tutorials on disassembling the cabinet then remove the agitater and inner tub. Enter your model # above for a diagram or illustration.

Hi Yugin.That indicates your machines water inlet valve is faulty.(Means it's taking less water then normal)Please check this steps & do it fast before water inlet is finishes:1-Turn your machine on & run empty with pre-wash cycle first.2-Please ajar the detergent drawer & check runing water on compartment one 3-Please press pre-wash button & compare the running water volume on compartment two.If the running water volume 1 is less then 2 or vs.water valve needs to be replace.That's causing problem.I hope that helps.Thanks.

What do you do if the Miele washing machine's check drain and inlet light is on?


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.

The check inlet light flashes. I have cleaned the


If your sure the water way is clear, unplug the unit, plug it back in,
and see if the error is gone, if not, place the water lines into the tub and turn on the water to make sure water is coming into unit, if so the problem lies somewhere else.

Re-post if this didn't help, and say you did this but still have the error.
Good luck, hope it helps.

Inlet blockage red light flashing


Try turning the machine on its side, undo the bottom and check that the polystyrene float (attached to a switch) is not somehow jammed. This float cuts off the water if the machine leaks internally, and produces the symptoms you describe. It's a really good machine so don't throw it away!!

If that still doesn't help then it might also be the motor brushes, which produce similar symptoms - if your machine starts to fill but then flashes and just drains again, it's almost certainly the brushes. This might be the case after you check the float problem.

Can you hear the drain pump running??....If so the WPS system has been activated and there is water in the base.
If not, please post back if any water is going into the main wash compartment once it's started. No water, then faulty inlet valve.
