Miele Novotronic 1613 seems stuck in 'drain mode' at 'finish'

Recommended Posts

Hello - I have looked through the 'common problems' index and I can't find this problem.

My machine -- maybe five years old? -- keeps making a sound like it's draining even when the program display shows 'finish'. This has been going on intermittently for a couple of years but now seems to happen with every cycle. It didn't happen at first.

We have a sceptic tank here and the 'fall' is very shallow. I'm wondering if that might be the root cause. Then again, this was not a problem initially.

I'd be grateful for any advice.

Hi. It's hard to think of a fault that would cause this. If the pump was just running all the time it couldn't wash or rinse so it must be behaving normally on a cycle. There can be an anti crease action after a wash cycle that intermittently turns the drum to stop the laundry left inside getting badly creased, but it shouldn't really need to activate the pump.
