help! Miele 4840 alarm!!
This has now happened for a third time...... After a cycle has almost finished - spin cycle not complete the screen says "end". Upon opening door the alarm sounds and the message reads "waterproof system activated". The first time, a few days had passed before we got tech support on the line. They suggested checking the soap. A week had passed and my husband emptied the front drain and we were back in business. It happened a second time and I had switched to a hypo allergenic soap due to skin irritation. I painstakingly did not buy the HE type and I got the error. Again we waited about a week -dried it out,drained it and continued with the correct soap - the delicate Miele brand I got as a gift. Now I am thinking I shouldn't bother with domestic brands and just invest in persil soap. 3 loads in and we have an alarm again! I give up..... But I love my miele FL! Help- has anyone else gone through this?
