I have a Miele g7856 and I just replaced the drain hose now I get a F2E code ?

The F 2E code indicates insufficient water coming into the dishwasher. Thus you should check that the shut-off valves for the incoming water lines are open. Make sure that the incoming water pressure hasn't decreased and that the water lines aren't kinked or blocked. You should also check the water inlet filters (at the screw connection of the hose) and the flow restrictor insert in the waterproof system.

Since the dishwasher was working before the drain hose was replaced, closed shut-off valves and kinked hoses are particularly likely. You may also want to replace the inlet hoses themselves. (Some anti-burst hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect a leak.)

I hope this helps.

We have a hoptpoint ultima super silent fdw80 dishwasher, displaying the code AL01, we have already tried the the 2 solutions listed & the fault still shows, any ideas?

You have a leak around the pump area and need to locate and repair this to use this unit. This fault code is to protect you home. This mean your unit is leaking during use and water is collecting in the base pan. You may need to run the unit were you can see the leak to repair. If possible you may also check you drain hose, it that leak it can also drain back into the base pan.
Good Luck

Drain pump goes ON when ON-OFF button is pressed, even if the know selector is in OFF position and the machine is dry. There is no fault codes and the dishwasher complete the washing cycle OK, but when...

Seems that the drain pump circuit in the main program controller unit power and keeps on as there is no logic feedback to cut off the power. It can be that the drain is clogged and so the water level detect keeps sensing due to a fault. check the sensors , check the drain filters , check the machine LEVEL so that the water drains clearly to the drain pump.

There is no water going into the dishwasher even though the water supply is on.

This is a typical Anti Flood system activation. This system activates when water leaks onto the floor of the machiene due to a leak fault (pipe/hose clamp/ partly blocked pipe). The machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and stops water inlet. The anti flood system is a polystireen float / micro switch at the base of the machiene floor. Dry the floor and drectify the leak and it should work.

F70 fault error keeps appearing on my Miele G1220SC full dishwasher - any idea?


it is the float switch in the base of the unit, which registers a water leak. you are probably using too much detergent and it is overflowing into the base.

Miele G 7856 Commercial 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.
Any ideas?
