1. Leave it alone, checking the rinse aid every month.
2. Find the fault.
The fault is likely with either the level detector, which will probably mean a replacement rinse aid dispenser or with the cabling. Try disconnecting the detector cables and seeing if the light turns off (make sure it's the detector cables, not the doser). If the light turns off, the likelihood is that the detector has failed. If not, then the fault will lie elsewhere, possibly with the logic board.
The rinse aid light is just an indicator to let you know the rinse aid is low. You fill it in the container next to where you put the detergent. Just push the yellow button and the lid will pop up. rinse aid is more important on the newer miele dishwashers, as they dont have "active drying" like the older dishwashers did. They depend on the rinse aid to sheet the water off the dishes at the end of the cycle. They are designed this way to reduce energy consumption. If you choose not to use rinse aid, and you dont mind wet dishes at the end of the cycle, either disregard the red light, or fill the rinse aid dispenser with water to trick the machine into thinking it is full.
If you are not going to use the onboard water softener, you can turn it off. Refer to your owners manual, or call miele tech support at 800 843 7231 and they can walk you through the programming to disable the water softener. these are not fault lights, they are simply reminders that you need to fill the containers.
Thanks for using FixYa.The first
thing that should be checked is if its draining properly as it could be that
the drain hose is clogged and needs to be cleaned. The drain pump also should
not be clogged. Also the stopcock should be opened fully and the water inlet
valve should be checked for any clogs. Also themetal
filter, impeller coverand the air gap unit should be checked.After
checking this you can reset the error as follows:turn the
rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop"
switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on
again. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert
for further assistance.
Make sure you are using rinse aid. even if you are using tablets which has rinse aid built into the tablets Miele still recommend using rinse aid liquid as well.
Make sure you have the rinse aid setting on 3ml
Plastic will not dry as well as plates as it doesn't hold the heat.
You could call out a Miele service tech if it is still under warranty and he would be able to increase the drying time through his computer.
complain to miele be a pain they have given discounts on a new one before. try running apple cyder vinager through it pore some in let it run a little then open the door and let it soak for a day or so and then try it again it may just be dirty good luck
check the pan under the dishwasher ... you will need to remove the toe panel...if there is water in the pan you my have a leak and will need to find it stop the leak and remove the water for the pan. also check the float switch that it can move up and down ...hope it helps
The rinse aid light means you are out of rinse aid. The salt light means you have to add salt to your built in water softener. If the drain/intake light is on, that is when you have a problem. It will flash when there is a problem. You have to count the flashes and that will tell you what the error is.
