F19 is water in the cabinet takes too long to heat up. you can reset the heater limiter..
Reset the error message as follows: To cancel the error message, 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. If the fault message reappears
take off service panel press button on the heater limiter red-brown located on the left side of the plinth...

ok, just a few minutes after posting this as a fault, I have opened the covers, the machine has a leak, the undertray has a sensor which has detected this, flashing light (prog 45 degC wash) flashing is a code to indicate leak sensor active.
Other prog lights flashing indicate a different fault, the following details each... this is a cut/paste from another forum site, copied without permission....

Cannot guarantee 100%accurate but you all might like what the flashing fault codes actually refer to, note what follows are pointers to what bit has gone wrong only. You should have the programmes running left to right: led1=intensive,led2=normal,led3=eco,led4=fast,led5=prewash,led6=delicate wash.ok so when this heap of western european tosh goes wrong one or two lights will flash this is what they mean:led3=m/ch has o/flowed water . ie the base underneath has sensed a leak.4=i/let h2o valve u/s or slow fill.5=thermister(electronic thermostat) is u/s or more likely the pcb .6=timeout heating which means the thermister senser between the door halves has become faulty or detached.3+4=no pump out,slow pump out,pcb u/s,blockage.4+5=tap off i/let valve.3+5=wash motor not coming on -seized,winding o/cic.but can also mean mesh plte filter badly blocked.1+4software fault with pcb.4+6=heating cic u/s (usually the heater tube )but can be the heater relay on pcb.3+4=pcb u/s.I don`t except any responsiblity for this being spot on or near spot on!! hope this helps someone.Try NOT to electrocute yourselves please!! If your not at all confident walk away and get "someone" who knows what they are doing.Cheers. jawa592

holding the button for four seconds will not do it, you have to hold it until the light stops blinking and
will go back to normal, normall takes more than four seconds to unlock the unit, this is something
the sears repair techs know becouse the are trained on all this things but, they will not share this things, becouse thats how they make money

I found the solution by phoning Miele. You just have to reset as follows: switch on with program 2 and 3 pushed in. Then push top solo twice. Switch off and on again. The Miele is ready to go.

This is most probably a software glitch. I had the same issue a week ago and my dishwasher is only about 2 yrs old and only gets used on average once a fortnight.
At first I did everything as the manual shows in the troubleshooting section. The whole process takes only about 5 to 15 minutes depending on how good of a handyman you are.
When I cleaned all the parts involved (all pretty clean to start with anyway) and connect them all back, sadly the red light wouldn't go.
It looked like I was stuck with the most hated option I had left: call the dreaded technician and be prepared to depart with some hard-earned cash.
Before doing that and out of desperation, I decided to surf the net for clues, blogs, forums, etc... and on one of them I found my answer.
One blogger suggested that "if anything else fails, try the 'reset' step" which means pressing at the same time the On/Off button and the Start/Stop button. That operation put a big smile on my face (and my wife's face too) as the red light magically disappeared.
My suggestion is "first try the reset trick and if that fails try and clean the parts as the manual shows". It'll save you headaches because the reset would do the trick in 90% of cases.
I work in IT and I can understand the fact that a software malfunction would trigger the red light and not reset it.
