Miele WS5427 MC13 (drain valve version - i.e. no drain pump)

Customer Question

Miele WS5427 MC13 (drain valve version - i.e. no drain pump) drain light flashing, machine won't spin dry even without a load in the machine. This fault occurred intermittently and I had to manually select the separate spin cycle which worked for a bit. Now the machine won't spin even on the separate spin cycle, after approx 1 min the drain light flashes.

Hello, my name is George..

This flashing drain light could be caused by no power to, or failure of, the motor on the drain valve.
The fact that the drum wont spin could be brushes in the main motor of the appliance.

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
