Question about Dishwashers
Do you have the fault code list for miele G7859
I had this same fault code on the same machine and managed to fix it...............Turn off the power...then take out the bottom white basket so you can see the bottom inner of the dishwasher, then take out the centre filter and remove the silver L shaped plate so you can see down into the lower white inners......(may have water in it) on the left you can see a small white double dome with a silver clip going over it.....release the clip and pull off the dome inside you will find a pump wheel check this spins freely by flicking it round with your finger......if you cant see it due to water then either feel for it or remove the water.........if it does'nt spin...free it...if it does spin easily then put it all back together and do this...... turn the control dial so it points upwards to the Hazard warning shape.........then turn on the power......wait a minute and then turn the control to the water drain symbol (arrow pointing to water) then hit the green start button...all being well you should hear the pump you've just checked spinning and pumping the water out I did this and its worked fine since p.s. the machine reset button is hidden under the 2 plates at the lower front of the machine but the screws are tricky to get to. try the pump and control part first.

F11 - Drainage fault
This code means that water present in appliance and is not being drained off. The display shows Drain fault F11. The buzzer is activated for 2 minutes.
After each drain pump step, the circulation pump operates for 2 seconds and heater pressure switch B1/13 checks the water level. If it is too high (large quantity of residual water remaining in the cabinet), the drainage time is extended. If, after a further check, the water level is still too high, then the program is interrupted, the fault code is saved and the drain pump is activated. Fault code F11 is also registered if heater relay 1K1 is not activated after the fault code F51 register check; see Section 080-3.18. Drain hose kinked. Remedy: Check the drain hose for correct positioning.
Cause: Drain blocked.
1. Clean the on-site drain.
2. Check the sump drain.
3. Check the filters.
4. Check the heater pressure switch and replace it if necessary.
Ball in non-return valve in sump has not opened (e.g., jammed).
Clean the non-return valve in the sump or replace it if necessary. Cause: Foreign objects in the drain pump.
Clean the drain pump and its impeller.
Drain pump defective.
1. Check the voltage supply to the drain pump.
2. If correct voltage is present, check the drain pump motor winding.
3. Replace the drain pump, if necessary.
Foreign objects in heater pressure switch.
Check the heater pressure switch for blockages and correct switching point.
Heater relay defective. Heater relay (coil or contacts) becomes defective during the drainage step (after fault code F51 register check).
Replace the heater relay.
In other cases, owners found a piece of wood inside the door latch mechanism and removed it. The F11 error has not appeared since.
Hope ths helps.
