What is a Candy brand dishwasher? Made in the UK? That is not a manufacturer I have ever heard of here in the US.
What do you mean, 'doesn't seem to heat up any sense?'
If the dishwasher is older than 5 years, write it off to age a buy a new, high quality machine. Or do the dishes by hand.
Machines get old and die. If you are UK native, don't buy anothre Candy.
test the following steps and fix it. God bless you Power Supply
The main power supply is the first thing to check. Also remove the toe
kick and the cover on the power box and check the connections. Also check the 120 volts at the power box
Hi - Limit Fuse
This will fail if your dishwasher overheats and occassionally with power
surges. This is easy to check, inexpensive and a quick fix. Just check
the terminals for continuity ( remember always remove one wire) if you
have none replace the hi- limit fuse
This is the second place to look. Again an inexpensive easy fix. The following video will walk you thru checking the door switch The power comes into the main power box and usually runs to the door switch next before entering the main control module.
Main Control Module / Timer
The main control module or mechanical timer controls all the functions
of the dishwasher. To check this you will need to find the 2 leads that
supply the power to the control. They will be marked on the wiring
diagram. They usually come from the hi - limit fuse or the door switch.
When the door is latched you should have 120 volts entering the main
control. If you do not the problem is not the control. If you do have
power entering the control but none of the functions work properly or it
does not respond at all you will need to replace the control module,
this is easy to replace but not very inexpensive to purchase. Consider
the age and overall condition when purchasing this part.
The motor may have failed. If the control illuminates on electronic
versions the problem may be the motor. To check the motor refer to the
tech sheet located behind the console cover on most models, this will
sometimes have the ohm reading of the motor. Also check each lead to the
metal housing of the motor to check for shorts in the motor. If you do
not have the ohm reading specicifications, check for continuity if none replace the motor. Make sure the motor is receiving power.
If the float switch has failed or is stuck the dishwasher control may
not respond. The float switch is easy to check and replace.
Welcome to FixYa.
Sorry you have had to wait so long for a reply, it seems there are only a limited number of techs here familiar with Asko. Anyway, yes F2 normally would indicate a hi water level detected...normally. The difefrence in your case being the fact of the condensor/dry fan running. This is a red flag. In these scenario's 99% of the time the control is at fault. If you remove the door and control panel and visually inspect the control you will most certainly see burnt circuits on the control.
If you have not already found the problem or hired a tech to look at the dishwasher, let me know and I'll guide you in what to do and to look for in more detail.
I'll watch for a reply,
The power issue with the Miele G2630 dishwasher is due to a blown fuse inside the dishwasher or due to faulty main board of the dishwasher. However, before checking internal components we can first reset the circuit breaker, make sure it is a 15 A breaker. If the breaker is fine then you'll need to disassemble the dishwasher. Try and dis-mantle the dishwasher from its place, before this remember to turn off power and water supply. And also check for the drain hose. After the dishwasher is dismantled, you can remove the back panel of the dishwasher and check for the blown fuse and also check for any loose connections on the power supply board. Inspect for burnt components on the main board.
Please post back for any further assistance. If you are satisfied please do accept the solution.
If your dishwasher drain line is attaching to the disposer than you'll need to insure the "knock out" in the disposer upper end bell where the drain connect's is indeed knocked out. You can do this by removing the d/w drain at the disposer, then reaching in with a long screw driver and with the palm of your hand give it a quick firm punch. Once the knock out pop's out you'll need to reach in the garb and remove the piece of plastic from the knock out. This is a common step overlooked, so if that is the only problem don't be embarrassed, I see it at least once a month or more.
Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your solution's.

You said, " YOU HAVE NO MANUAL AND NOT SURE WHAT THE SETTINGS ARE FOR."
I found the site where you can read or download your proper User manual for the Candy CS455M Dishwasher. Below is the site that will take you directly to the Candy online Manual search. When there, Manually start typing in the sc455 and a few model choices will pop up.Choose your cs455m and when it opens , you may print it or just read it to acquire the information you need.
