Question about Miele Washing Machines
Have you tried opening the little door at the front of the machine, that leads to the drain filter? You'll see a stopper that needs to be turned anti-clockwise to open it. Make sure you have a container placed to catch the water that will flow out!!! You might find some small articles, coins, buttons, fluff in the filter. Remove them and your machine should work properly again. If that didn't work for me I would call in the professionals.

Have you checked the filter, it may need emptying/cleaning out. If you take bottom front panel off you should be able to see it -- I think it's toward the right.

The display should say 5E, this means that it's not draining. unlucky for you as this means you have to replace the drain pump, wich aperently cost about $137NZ. this seemes to be a common fault. i'm not a teck, but I just had the same thing happen, lucky for me i had a warranty.
Other simptoms are the loud racking noise coming fromn the washing machine. home this helps.

If your front loader is leaking, the most common cause is a worn door bellow (rubber seal). As the washer spins, the centrifugal force of the tub can spin the water into the door area. If the seal is torn, it will leak out of the bottom of the washer. You will need to inspect the perimeter around the door to ensure the seal does not have any rips or tears. To be sure where your leak is coming from, however, you need to remove the lower toe panel under the door and inspect the washer thoroughly. The following link explains how to access the interior of the washer cabinet and how to inspect for leaks:
The door bellow DOES wear out with age, but if you have a tendancy to overload the washer it can contribute to premature wear. If you determine that the bellow requires replacement, the following link explains how to replace one:
Replacement parts (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope I've given you enough information to help you find the source of your leak.
