Question about Miele Dishwashers
The machine starts up and the drain flows - and functions (I have manually poured in water and had it drain out). I have checked the inlet screen, the drain system etc - all seem fine. The drain pump runs for a bit and it never turns on the water inlet solenoid (no power sent to it). The solenoid appears OK and the float switch tests Ok. Again, the unit never provides power to the inlet solenoid, it just activates the inlet/drain light. I have yet to find any instructions on how to get into service mode on this unit - I only have three buttons a program button, an On and an Off button. I have 120v going to the intake solenoid, but the controller never activates the negative connection to start the intake of water.
Your pump motor has siezed, it can be removed then spray some penetrating oil abd rotate by hand until the fan spins free and reassemble. Be sure to turn breaker for your dishwasher

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also
error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also
checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no
issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.

All im going to say is i think you have a faulty inlet valve.the water is probably only trickling into the machine & taking forever to fill,the computer board has probably picked up that the washer is taking to long to fill & has thrown up a fault code relating to the fill or inlet valve.Also sometimes if the filters in the bottom are clogged the water cant get to the wash motor & the motor cant load up with water.The motor runs without load on it & the computer board interprets this as slow fill or inlet valve problem.

F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

I had a similar problem and called out an engineer. When he ran it on rinse it worked fine. Said the micro chip had got confused because I kept pressing buttons. Worked fine for a few weeks and has started playing up again. I have reset it again and hope for the best!

The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified
