Its jammed.
Something that is not supposed to be there is blocking you from screwing it out.

You have to take of the front with the door to access the hose from the drum to the pump house. There you will find your problem.

Usually when something leaks after you worked on it, you just didn't get the connection hooked up tight. Undo it, put some teflon tape on the threads (going the same way you will be screwing the two pieces together) and make sure you align the threads right, then tighten it back up.

Error code F53 on Miele is a speed sensor fault.
It has detected the drum speed to be wrong at some point and has indicated the problem to you.
Have you tried unplugging it. That will reset the computer.
If it's not coming up again after unplugging it, I'd not worry about it.
If it is coming up every time you use it, then you have either a faulty sensor, motor or pcb.
Miele are extremely secretive with information on their appliances and this makes it hard to diagnose accurately faults on them.

not on the machine. All shut off valves are on the pipe at the other end of the hose at the machine itself.

This is the installation and operating manual.

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 :)
