Miele 1203 washer failed during a cycle and buzzer on no fault lights
During cycle buzzer came on and no fault lights but pump running. had repair guy in and he played with sump switch and then machine worked for 2 weeks ok. Now failed again same way when poered on the buzzer is on and pump runs and no other indiactor on but power. press the buzzer button and buzzer off but pump keeps running no other indcators. I have checked sump switch and it is working normally float not stuck and switch measures ok but still fails. I suspect open wire or something else on panel wrong.

The drain pump (M8) is activated, level-controlled, for up to 1 h.The buzzer sounds intermittently for 2 min irrespective of its setting.Digital display: - - - Cause
Buzzer The end of a program and faults can be announced by a buzzer tone. The buzzer at the end of a program sounds five times in intervals with a brief break in between. The buzzer sounds up to one hour if the dishwasher is not turned off. The buzzer for a fault sounds continuously. The buzzer sounds for up to two minutes if the dishwasher is not turned off or the fault is fixed. The buzzer is activated by default. It can be set to off, so it does not sound at the end of a program. The buzzer for a fault cannot be set to off. ^ Open the door. ^ Turn the dishwasher off o. ^ Press the program button and at the same time turn the dishwasher on g. Hold the program button until the lower right program indicator comes on. If it does not come on, start over. ^ Press the program button briefly four times. The "Intake/Drain" indicator flashes 4 times in intervals. The upper right program indicator shows if the program end buzzer is turned on or off. - Upper right program indicator flashes: Buzzer is turned on - Upper right program indicator is off: Buzzer is turned off it is not easy to disable the buzzer. you have to hold the buttons down exactly the way it tells you to in the manual. you also have to pay attention to the lights and make sure they are flashing the proper sequences. try it two or three times. you will eventually get the hang of it. not sure where you live, but the miele techs have a computer that allows them to disable the beeper if you are unsuccessful. the proceedure is copied below.

Drain pump triac failure
This error code is displayed when the main electronic controller fails to detect the triac that controls the outlet drain pump during the wash cycle.
Check pressure switch contacts and connectors
Failure of the pressure switch or level sensor can also give rise to this fault code
Run test program
If failure persists after test and verification of pressure switch, replace main controller
Have had this since 2007 or 2008. Pain in the backside.
Fixed it by:
Unplugging from power.
Tilting forward to drain water for 1-2 mins.
Made sure that the clear plastic light ***** in the rubber opening which located at the top was tight as it tends to get loose if you have an off-balance load.
Plugged power back in.
Boom, she started up.
This is a great washer/dryer, but it's expensive to fix if you need a repairman and it's a bit of voodoo if you need to do the above.
You have water in the bottom pan of the machine. grab it at the back and tilt it forward. the water will run out and it will start working again, but you will probably need a concertina hose. This is the hose that connects the detergent compartment to the wash drum.
There is a float switch in a pan under the machine. This pan is probably full and the float switch is causing the Intake & Drain fault signal. You can lean the machine over to towards the front to partially drain the pan. Put a towel down to catch the water. When you put the machine level again the fault lights should be out. The real question is where did the water come from. You can easily remove the top (4 screws, 1 on each side behind the little plastic caps and 1 on each side of the back. Torx heads) and look down inside while you start the cycle. Look for leaks. Good Luck, Dan
