Waterproof fault Miele washing machine W5740

Recommended Posts

Hi. My Miele washing machine is beeping and flashing 'waterproof fault'. I had just cleaned out the filter but had not replaced it, I suspect my daughter ( would like to say she is only a toddler, but is 18!) came home with her washing and attempted to use the machine without the filter put back properly.  Is that anything to do with it or is it a coincidence? Either way does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it please?

if I could do this before my husband came home that would be amazing!

many thanks

Waterproof fault on a Miele washing machine means it's detected a leak in the base of the machine. If you've just cleaned out the filter, remove it again and make sure it is clean and fitted back properly as it could have leaked from there. Otherwise call an engineer or check my help article washing machine leaking
