The fact that it does not fill completely can be related to a problem with the water-level switch, that regulates the water level.
See from Repairclinic:
"This switch is usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. If the switch is defective, it may prematurely signal the water to shut off. If so, you probably need to replace the water-level switch."
However, when it is only the switch the mashine usually completes the cycle, but with less water than normal.
A possibilty is that either the timer is faulty or there is a problem with the water supply.
Check that water is coming from water supply with regular pressure, and that hoses back there are not obstructed.
More likely you will have to replace the timer.
See again from Repairclinic:
"When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
You can find parts at the following websites, you need to input your model number. If the part is not listed contact them.

The same has just happened to our machine. My good lady inadvertently put too much into the machine, which is a Miele Novo, and then she tried to spin the thing to drain the water.
The upshot is:
The machine fails to spin or turn even during a wash cycle.
The Rinse light flashes.
All other operations work, it drains, pumps water etc.

psminkley sorry for hijacking your thread although this seems to be the same drama you are having.
I have checked the belt, motor and brushes all appear to be ok although i will bow to your superior knowledge should you know what is wrong.
Thanking you in anticipation

OE error is noyhing but an Outlet Error.. OE simply means “the pump is blocked”. Clean and straighten the drain hose / clean the drain filter. Check the hoses (drain hose) and the pump filter but if it didn't cure the problem then turn the thing upside down and strip the pump out of it check if anything is caught in the impellor.. if so remove it and everything will be fine..

SOURCE: what does error 5 mean
Error 5 means that there is a water inlet problem.
Move the appliance, ensure that the water hose is not kinked or blocked, and check filter in water hose if installed.
Check connected faucet and water pressure.
If the inlet hose and pressure is OK, then the inlet valve and water pressure switch must be tested as one of the two parts is likely giving the error.
