The most common failures of Miele washing machines

If your Miele washing machine has a malfunction, an error message usually appears in the display. When no water enters the drum, for example. Or if there is too much foam in it. Of course, you prefer a solution for this Miele failure as soon as possible. In this article, you can read what you have to do for each error message.

F63 malfunction: too much foam

Staat er F63 op het display? Dan zit er te veel schuim in de trommel en heb je mogelijk te veel wasmiddel gebruikt. Maak de trommel helemaal leeg en draai een katoenprogramma op 90 °C. Gebruik hierbij geen wasmiddel. Op deze manier verwijder je overtollige zeepresten. Om deze storing in de toekomst te voorkomen, doseer jij je wasmiddel en wasverzachter altijd volgens het etiket op de fles. Zo gebruik je niet te veel.

Fault F220, or 'water supply fault' notification

When you see this error code or message on the display, something is wrong with the water supply. Too little water enters the drum or possibly no water at all. A solution can be to open the tap completely. Check whether there is a blockage or kink in the supply hose. If the hose is broken, replace it. Switch the washing program on again and check whether the fault has disappeared.

'Drainage fault' notification

Washing machine drain filter

The washing machine doesn't drain the water so the drum is full of water. The drain filter may be clogged. Check this via the front cover, which is located at the bottom left. To prevent your floor from getting dirty, you should put a towel, just to be sure. If there is a hairpin or coin in the filter, remove it. In the article below, you can read what you have to do to unclog the rest of the drain.

'Waterproof fault' notification

Water tap

Do you get the message 'waterproof' or a symbol with a tap? 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.
