Hi. Trying to get my Miele G2180 Dishwasher into service mode so I can determine fault code. However, I can't get the Rinse & Hold light to blink rapidly (5Hz). It is only blinking slowly (1Hz).
What I've tried so far:
1. Open the door.
2. Switch off the machine.
3. Press and hold the program button.
4. Switch on the machine.
5. Release the program button.
6. Immediately press and release the program button 3 times and at the 3rd time hold until the Rinse & Hold LED flashes rapidly.
7. Release the program button.
When completing step 6 in the above procedure, the Rinse & Hold light only blinks slowly. What's strange is that I am able to get the dishwasher into programming mode (i.e. Rinse & Hold blinks rapidly).

Hi I have thge same problem. i sent the circuit board away for testing but no fault found. really frustrating. hard to find any info for miele machines. Thay want you to call their own v expensive service staff. if i find a solution ill post it here
check if the drain hose is not clogged and try to clean it as it can be that
the hose is clogged and the water is not draining properly. After that check if
the drain pump filter is fine and not clogged, try to clean that as well. After
this check the metal filter, impeller coverand the air gap unit.After checking this you can
reset the error as follows:turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or
press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the
appliance off and then back on again. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
Make sure you are using rinse aid. even if you are using tablets which has rinse aid built into the tablets Miele still recommend using rinse aid liquid as well.
Make sure you have the rinse aid setting on 3ml
Plastic will not dry as well as plates as it doesn't hold the heat.
You could call out a Miele service tech if it is still under warranty and he would be able to increase the drying time through his computer.
The red light tell you there is a fault. You have to read the fault code and it will give you a general idea of the problem - to do this you have to enter the service mode of operation - close the door and turn the dishwasher on. The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.
Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and Salt lamps and a lit Rinse lamp indicates successful accessing of services mode Fault codes F00 Pots & Pans Lit F01 Sani Wash Lit F02 Normal Plus Lit F03 Normal Lit F04 Economy Lit F05 Rinse & Hold Lit F06 Pots & Pans Lit F07 Sani Wash Lit F08 Normal Plus Lit F09 Normal Lit Flashing
Try pressing heated dry, normal, heated dry, normal keys within 6 seconds. All lights should come on and the machine should enter diagnostic mode. If this does not work remove the 2 screws that hold the toe panel on at the bottom front of the dishwasher, attached inside you will find a tech sheet that tells you how to enter the diagnostic mode. Once you get it in diagnostic mode let it do it's thing, will take about 20 minutes total. At the end the control will be reset. If the fault comes back then troubleshoot according to the tech sheet, or call for service.
I've finally tracked down the manual and it the fault code is as follows "Indicates a fault in the heater or in the thermistor" You can go into a fault tracing mode by pushing the "Rinse Hold" button five times within 15 seconds. The first, third, fifth and seventh lights will flash when in this mode and you can test the following parts by pressing the corresponding button. I'm going to try the heater test below and assume that if that works the fault must be with the Thermistor. The other tests could be useful for other faults. User manual found here Rinse Hold - tests detergent solenoid, detergent flaps open after about 60sec Pots & Pans - tests Rinse Aid Solenoid, rinse aid will flow down door Normal Wash - tests water inlet valve, water can be heard entering Light Wash - tests ventilator solenoid, there will be a click followed by a rattling noise Quick Wash - tests the heater, the element heats up, WARNING don’t touch element HOT Temp - tests circulation pump, the pump starts Dry - test outlet pump, the pump starts Manual says to push 55 and 65 degree button to exit, I have no idea where those are so will probably just switch off at wall to reset. Hope this helps someone. I rang ASKO and they said they didn’t know what the fault code meant so either they can’t read or their service sucks, probably a bit of both!
