Check the impeller on the pump to make SURE it's turning freely. There could be a piece of debris wedged in there - like glass or a screw from a pot handle. If this is redundant, I apologize.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
The problem is with clogged drain filter pump assembly, you can take it apart from the bottom to clean the drain filter pump assembly. After you have cleaned it completely then turn the selector switch to STOP/END or press the START/STOP for 20 seconds. After you have done all this unplug the appliance for 5-10 minutes and plug it back to solve this problem. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

If you have already cleaned the drain filter pump assembly located inside the bottom access panel completely and you are sure that it is not overflowing due to a bad float switch assembly located inside the bottom panel next to the pump then yes the recommended repair will be replacing the drain pump assembly. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Sounds like the timer is sticking. If you had a manual timer I would tell you to advance manually, but you don't. One I can tell you, try turning off the power to it.

make sure you are not using too much detergent. no more than 2 teaspoons. try running the unit with no detergent a few times. if problem still persists then check the door seal or remove the door panel and make sure the overflow tray running along the base of the door where the hinges are is not blocked with food. also check the door is closing enough to seal,the door latch may have moved. check the tightness of the screws

Hi Dadcar, Your main wash pump has seized (or stuck). Disconnect machine from power & water, Tip machine on its back. Remove screws that hold the bottom tray on. Remove hoses to main motor, remove electrical connections & remove motor (one screw that holds motor is actually on the outside back of the machine(you will see what I mean). Try to rotate (unstick) the motor (this can sometimes be done by spraying a bit of WD40 and trying to rotate the impellor with a pencil (careful not to break any of the fins on the impellor. If you cannot rotate it, then a new motor will be required. Replace back in machine in reverse to removal. Good luck...I hope the motor turns for you. PS Whilst you haven't used the machine very much, this in itself is a problem and can cause motors & pumps to stick, and seals to perrsh. Try to use the machine at least once a month. Kind regards

The circ pump cam with a new seal for the housing - if the new seal is leaking I would remove the pump and rest it - there may be a piece of debris causing the leak

I have seen the float in the drip pan stuck in the up position before. If this happens, it wont let your machine fill. You will have to check underneath to confirm if this has happened.

I have a star sapphire Thermador dishwasher that has similar adjustments and if you search your model of Miele and follow that with "inside view" you will probably find a view where you can tell how they're supposed to be placed. It worked for me.
