I sold the Mieles i recently bought and the new owner is getting flashing lights for drain and water inlet.
The new owner insisted i run a water test before buying, a reasonable request. I did and the machine ran a load no problem. But i transported it on itís side, and delivered without draining the washer fully. My bad.
Any experience with this issue out there?

Itís just a float switch in the bottom of the washer pan. If there is any water in the pan the float switch will trip. Either wait for it to evaporate or tip on side to drain the water and then wait a day. There usually isnít enough water in the washer for this to happen.

What is the exact error code?

This machine, w1203, predates codes. It gave the signal by simultaneously flashing the inlet fault light and drain fault light.
The new owner tilted the machine forward and drained the excess water, following instructions he found on the internet.
Apparently all is good now....phew!
Really nice machines. The matching dryer is a bit small for my needs, but a great pair for limited space.

Cleaning the trap can cause that as well

My mother managed that several times while cleaning out the drain filters.

Maybe warn the new owner of that as well.

First (and only time) Flood Protection System Activated

On our AEG Lavamat almost had kittens! Having never seen a washer throw such a fit wasn't prepared for the drama.

Swapping out water solenoid and not tightening things up properly caused a leak which in turn triggered flood protection system.

After drying out base of machine with several towels (and tightening up the connections), had to contact AEG up north to obtain programming sequence that clears fault/resets machine.
