Just wanted to mention mine was retaining the fabric softener and skiping steps in the cycle and intake red light was flashing too. Once
I cleaned the draw and used a toothbrush to unblock the holes in the ceiling its working again perfectly. Miele Novatronic W 828.
Hi there are 3 possible causes. 1. Out of balance load (drum is divide into 3 sections if weight i one section is greater then 1.25kg than another section appliance will not spin) 2.Carbon brushes ( Normally good for at least 10 years) 3. Vent ( Y - Piece) from drain pump blocked.This requires front panel to be removed.
If the machine detects a fault then an indicator light will flash,(rinse light for motor circuit).
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.
All Miele washing machines and dishwashers need to fill in a required time. Flashing inlet (Tap icon) indicates that the machine can not fill in time. There are filters in the end of the hoses which connect to your water supply from the machine and filters in the inlet valves which you can get at by removing the hose from where it fixes onto the machine it'self. You will need some long nose pliers to grab the little tab on the small filter to get it out. Clean all filters and hoses. Still same problem then check the pressure of the water coming into the machine. There should be a good pressure coming out of the hose and will be difficult to stop the flow of water with your finger.
