It is leaking internally. When the drip tray is full, it tells you to empty the drip tray. when the machine has a problem and develops a leak, it locks up and displays watersystem fault. contact miele at 800 843 7231 and they can put you in contact with a service center in your area.

Cva 4070 drip tray issue


Miele CVA 4066 -Empty drip tray warning would not go off even after draining the drip tray, cleaning contacts, and resetting power. Water was coming out from under the empty tray.
I pulled unit out and removed sheet metal in rear around water inlet. when I attached water line and power cord & turned on power, I could see water dripping out of one of the 2 solonoids on the water inlet valve. $168.00 from Miele and no expensive service call.

The conditioner is still in the compartment at the end of the washing cycle


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is a common problem with many machines.
I suspect that it is the conditioner/softener tray which needs a thorough clean, paying particular attention to the sentences in BOLD OR the water feed into the softener tray is not working properly. If the latter, follow these instructions and then clean the jets where the softener water is supposed to enter before calling for service;-0)
-------------------------------------
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
  • Top catch- push down the lip/catch at the middle rear and pull the drawer out (that's how our Bosch one is removed)
  • release the catches underneath (our daughter's Indesit) or
  • lift upwards on the tray as it is coming out to clear the lip underneath.
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube
but on others the cover is part of the tray's plastic top. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.

If this does not work, pull out the dispenser drawer far enough to be able to just see the softener tray, select the (final?) rinse and check that water is entering the tray. If it isn't there is a fault with the water distribution and an engineer call is required ;-0(

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

One of these should enable you remove it

The machine never takes in the fabric conditioner. When the wash has finished the tray is always still full

Miele coffee machine shows"watersystem fault"


Hello Wiesiek1,
The water system fault means that there is too much water on the bottom drip pan and it has tripped the sensor at the bottom of the machine. Usually removing the bottom grate where the cups sit and taking some paper towels and soaking up the water/spillage will fix this problem

Watersystem fault. Anchorage, Alaska


I've just had my machine fixed by a miele technician. Turns out the rubber beneath the water reservoir had worn out after 5 years. Because it was leaking, the machine was filling up with water. It protects itself by giving you the message. You can remove the reservoir, take a flexible tube/hose and drain the machine. It will probably fix the problem for a while. The Miele part number for the rubberseal is 05046331. Pretty cheap.

Watersystem fault


This is a design flaw of the Miele CVA610 and CVA615. If the water reservoir is not properly installed, it will leak into the sump. The only solution is to have a turkey baster on hand for this invevitable situation. This has been confirmed to me by both a Miele technician and their technical support people.

Watersystem fault


Thanks for the solution . I fixed my "Watersystem fault" . The wet switch in the unit is activated when water gets into the base of the machine to prevent water damage to the cabinetry .
