since yesterday my tumbledryer ( Miele) is leaking water ( under the machine.

ii cleaned the inside filters ( 2 small ones and the door filter) and i cleaned the big filter at the bottom of the machine , so i cleaned every piece i can without dismanteling the machine.

when the machine is on , the waterreservoir does not get filled with water. al the water is coming out from underneath the machine.

can someone help me out?

i heard it is possible a dirty pump of cable to the reservoir?

thanks in advance.

kind regards,
