  1. A little more information ..... I have cleaned out the inlet filter and the first issue has gone - check inlet flashing at beginning of cycle. When I run a quick wash - usually +-22 min the cycle runs on for close to hour. It finally drains and does not spin. The end result is the check drain and checks inlet lights both flashing. Peter
  2. Hi, After solving my drain filter removal problem (https://www.washerhelp.co.uk/forums/topic/2607-miele-w2444-removing-the-drain-filter/ I now have a new set of faults 1. When I start a cycle, about 15 seconds or so into the main wash the check inlet light starts flashing. After about 10 seconds or so the light stops flashing. The cycle continues.... 2. At the end of the wash, it stops with the check drain and checks inlet lights both flashing. I think it stops before the spin cycle but could be earlier as I was not watching at this stage. The spin cycle has not happened as items are still very wet. Its possible that there was no rinse either but the water has drained. I have cleaned the inlet filter to the Miele inlet safety hose and no change. Any suggestions? Peter
  3. Hi, I'm not sure whether to start a new thread or not but since replacing the filter I now have several warnings, 1. When I start a cycle, about 15 seconds or so into the main wash the check inlet light starts flashing. After about 10 seconds or so the light stops flashing. The cycle continues.... 2. At the end of the wash it stops with the check drain and check inlet lights both flashing. I think it stops before the spin cycle but could be earlier as I was not watching at this stage. The spin cycle has not happened as clothes are still very wet. Its possible that there was no rinse either but the water has drained. I have cleaned the inlet filter to the Miele inlet safety hose and no change. Any suggestions? Peter
  4. Thanks, Andy. The filter was frozen solid hence my question as I was afraid to just pull on it hard. Using some pliers and twisting finally freed up the filter. It was basically frozen in there with limescale. Its out now I have cleaned up as much limescale as I can and dug out lumps that were caked onto the inlet pipe probably narrowing the pipe by half. New filter ordered for good measure and hopefully, the machine should be up and working when it arrived. Fingers crossed.
  5. Hi, I have Miele W2444 Washing machine that has started showing the Check Drain warning. I have tried to remove the drain filter with no success! I opened up the little door on the bottom left of the machine, turned the screw cap which let out about a pint or so of water. I continued to turn the screw cap until it came off and was left with just the screw cap. Most of the demonstrations show the drain filter attached to the screw cap. What is left behind the screw cap cannot be pulled out easily and I dont want to pull too hard and break something. I have attached pictures of the screwcap on and off. I guess my question is how do I remove the filter? and should the filter be connected to the cap? Thanks Peter
