In all my years on Fixya and 32,700 answers, I have never heard of a 'waterproof error', however it does exist!
There normally a numerical error code on the display. unfortunately, it is a terminal error, you need a service call.
Error Code: Waterproof Fault
Error Message - The message "Waterproof Fault" will be displayed on the control panel along with an exclamation point.
This error is again one that I would recommend calling a professional to assist you with, accidentally triggering the waterproof system on your Miele washing machine can also cause this error to appear as well so do keep that in mind.
To find out how you turn on this setting on your model of washing machine refer to your instructions manual. You can attempt to fix this error yourself, but you will need to first disconnect your washing machine and turn off the water supply.
From there you will need to open the drum and remove any wet washing and then reset the error code. It sounds simple enough, but I would strongly advise calling in a professional to do this for you. The procedure is much more complicated than it sounds, and you really need expert help to do it without risking further harm to your washing machine.
If so, the water protection system indicates that there is a leak somewhere. With this message, immediately turn off the water tap and unplug the power cord. Next, contact the point of sale of your washing machine or Miele itself.
