Miele Washing Machines - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support
I just received this error message on my Miele WPS 4146 (Waterproof Fault) Prior to this I had an error message regarding the Drain outlet, so I opened the drain outlet and cleaned it. I think I might have opened it too quickly and therefore creating the (Waterproof Fault). The problem is that when you open the drain outlet too quickly the water runs into the bottom of the washing machine where some sensor lies and you get the (Waterproof Fault) error message on the display and not even turning off the machine will do anything to get rid of this annoying message.
So here is the fix that worked for me.
1. Turn off the machine
2. Unplug it
3. Open the drain outlet and take out the plug.
4. Dry all the visible water with a cotton cloth.
5. Tilt the machine FORWARD and hold it until you see water gushing from underneath the machine.
6. Repeat this until you see no more water.
7. Plug the machine back inn.
8 VOILA no error message! I hope in your case :)

Can't opeM Miele washer, says program not cancelled
Miele washers have a small panel on front toward bottom of machine. Flip this panel open with the key provided inside the soap dispenser drawer. There should be a small orange coloured ring which you pull to release the door.
To cancel program press and hold the start button for about 5 or so seconds. this should give you the option of cancelling the program.
Hope this may help
cheers from down under

Miele Novatronic W360
there is still water in the waterproof tray at the bottom of the machine and the float switch has activated. pull the machine out (if pipes allow) and tip the machine backwards to drain the water from the tray.
