SOURCE: Washing machine problem
my w830 is doing exactly the same thing.
I am usually pretty good at fixing these sort of things so if/when I solve it I will post back here.
I think it is a motor fault - most likely the motor brushes are worn out.

Give the door a firm push shut (even if it appears shut already). There is a safety mechanism that stops the door opening when drum is turning and it gets its knickers in a twist sometimes. Happened to me twice in the last 5 years and can never remember how to fix so end up ringing Miele support who are always helpful. Next time I'll look here first!

Try turning the machine on its side, undo the bottom and check that the polystyrene float (attached to a switch) is not somehow jammed. This float cuts off the water if the machine leaks internally, and produces the symptoms you describe. It's a really good machine so don't throw it away!!
If that still doesn't help then it might also be the motor brushes, which produce similar symptoms - if your machine starts to fill but then flashes and just drains again, it's almost certainly the brushes. This might be the case after you check the float problem.

The I is the pre-wash and the III is the main wash where you put the soap powder. the # star looking symbol is the fabric conditioner.
If you don't have a manual you can download this from the miele website.

Testimonial: "Thanx for the help. I managed to get my first wash very successfully. "
The machine thinks its flooded. Simply remove the drain cover filter and tilt the machine forward until water stops running out. Turn on machine and problem solved
