Miele G868 built-in dishwasher water inlet problem
Not enough water gets in to the machine on any of the cycles. I have disconnected at the supply and cleaned the small filter in the input hose. When I manually add enough water to the machine it works fine and drains completely. Anybody experienced the same problem and solved it?

Pull of the program knob. Then you should find a water-intake-time-selector to the right of the axis. Take a screwdriver and turn it slightly counter clockwise one click to increase the time and vice versa.

F13 Indicates that you have a water intake fault. The machine is not receiving the the proper amount of water quantity. You could turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet hose. There is a filter inside, to remove the filter you have to take out the seal and then you could use a pair of needle nose pliers to take out the filter basket. If the filter is clean you and your water supply is good, you have a problem with your flow meter not registering pulses when the water is taken in.
Clogged or kinked water supply line, or defective inlet valve.
Also some machines have an internal water level float valve that can get stuck in the up (Closed) position. It is usually round white plastic in corner of the bottom tub. It should move up and down freely about an inch or so.
Hi, the most likely cause is the waterproof system faulty. Which is the large grey box connected to your water supply.It's basically two water valves in series. The appliance is timed fill, if you increase the fill time this might help.The details can be found in the instruction book.Also disconnect water proof system and check water pressure.
I have just had the same issue. It actually turned out to be a very simple fix. The water inlet pipe has a very small copper filter that must have blocked up with age. I simply removed the filter and replaced it with a new one off a washing machine and the problem was instantly solved.
I have had the same problem. Here is what I've done. Take the door apart (a whole bunch of screws on the side of the door). The front panel will come off and you will see a rubber tube. Take it off and blow it out. Then take the blower out (you need to unscrew the inside of the blower). Take apart the blower and clean it out.
It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher.
The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher.
Regarding the screwdriver adjustment- This is the rinse aid dosage adjuster. To obtain the best drying results,use the selector on setting 5. When dishes show spots, set it to a higher setting. Turn lower if dishes are cloudy.
Miele have cold inlet only. Either element is open circuit, or the relay that switches the element has failed. My money would be on the element first, then the relay. The machine will sit in that mode forever as it is waiting for the temperature of the water to reach a certain temp before telling the electronic unit to move to the next part of the wash.
If you need assistance in how to test & how to get to these parts just let me know. But you will need an ohm meter to test the element.
