This answer was rated:

older miele novotronic washer w906.....cleaned and replaced filter at bottom left....replaced and tightened 3 turns as recommended.......water gushes out the pipe to the side of the filter instead of entering the machine...why???
Welcome, my name is ***** ***** I will be helping you with your problem today. If anything isn't clear, please just ask me.

Is this the the thin black hose that sits right next to the filter?

Have you owned this machine for a long time?

Customer: replied 2 years ago.

the machine is 15 years old.....the .5cm black hose leads to a white plastic fitting attached to the door opening to access the filter

Hi Tony

This sounds like the water release hose that you use to drain the water from the filter housing, when you want to pull the filter out.

There should be a plug type bung that fits into the end of that hose. You pull the bung out to allow the water out, then put it back in to allow the machine to fill

Let me know if you dont remember this .

In the meantime,
