Miele washing machine keep draining after completing all cycles

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I've a problem with my Miele premier 520 washing machine - it goes through all cycles as it should and when it gets to draining and remaining time show 0 on the display it won't stop draining despite water was drained away pump is still running and machine won't stop. I cleaned pressure chamber already because it was full of stuff and was causing "check drain" issue, tried to reset by switching off for 1min and open - shut door 6 times in 12 sec sequence.

Couldn't find such topic with similar issue, therefore ask.

Thanks in advance.

Hello Dave. A blockage in the pressure system should also cause the washing machine to refuse to spin. If it does the proper fast spin ok then I can't see how a blockage in the pressure system would cause this problem. Once it's done a full cycle including the spin it shouldn't be waiting for any signals from other parts or sections, it should just turn off after a set time period. So the fault is strange.

Hello Andy, Thank you for you quick answer. Yes as I mentioned all seems to work ok apart from last cycle that supposed to stop the drain pump. Could it be result of fautly pressure switch or something else ?  Normally during cycles it drains and fills ok, spins fast as normal.

Could it be related to the overfill we had because of blocked pressure chamber which caused it and water started coming through the washing machine sealed door ?

What about the white plastic box connected between the drain pump and outlet hose - is there something to look at and check ?

 

Need to also mention that the machine doesn't display any error - faults.

Hello Dave. No, it can't be related to the pressure system because a fault on the pressure system would cause functional errors, overfilling, not taking in water, or not spinning. Any fault you can think of should cause functional errors or error codes. If the washing machine washes, rinses and spins OK then all parts must be working. If it sticks right at the end with the pump running when all water has drained away and won't turn off, I can only suspect a fault on the control pcb. At this point the washing machine is not waiting for anything to happen, everything has completed and it's just a matter of turning off. However, I would definitely not consider trying to replace the pcb. It would be horrendously expensive and having not experienced the fault I couldn't 100% guarantee that would fix it.
