If your bottom drawer works fine then your inlet water valve below the bottom drawer is bad. Click on the link below to see how to repair this dishwasher.

My top drawer says it isnt getting any water and the water hose is rattling. the bottom drawer works fine

Its common for the Dual Water Valve to slowly decrease water flow to the tub. It generally faults on the top draw as its the most used...more wear on the top valve.
This is more often seen on US Models (120v) that have hot water fill.

Miele W1613 Drain fault and code F51

My machine limped along for a few weeks with an intermittent drain fault and then threw in code F51 occasionally. The F51 code is a water inlet fault, suggesting that water isn't filling the drum to the correct level. Clearly the first thing you need to do with these faults is check the obvious.

Drain fault:
Is the drain hose and drain filter clear?
Does the pump sound like it's running?
Is water actually being emptied?
Is inlet water pressure ok?
Is the inlet water filter clear?
Is water actually filling the drum?

In my case there was no suggestion of an obvious fault. So what makes the machine think there's a problem with water entering AND leaving the drum? It's the water level pressure sensor. The sensor itself is at the top of the machine, but a pipe connects it (via a small plastic chamber) to the very bottom of the tub. Water entering the tub rises in the pipe, thereby altering the pressure of trapped air and telling the machine when to stop filling or draining.
After dismantling the machine and removing the big hose connecting the bottom of the tub to the pump the sensor pipe is visible through the hose hole, which is quite large. So this pipe is in a good spot for collecting gunge and if it gets blocked it's a problem. Clean it out with an old toothbrush or whatever, while trying not to push it further up the pipe.
You should get some compensation for this effort when you empty the coins out of the hose you removed!
So I said 'after dismantling the machine' like it was child's play. It is pretty easy actually.

Open the door. Disconnect power.
Start with the lid. Two screws at rear, one each side under screw covers. Grip lid at front and lift up. It can be a bit stuck so give it a tug.
Remove powder draw.
Lift control panel away from front panel and lay on top of machine. You don't need to disconnect anything. Now you'll see the top of the sensor pipe.
Remove drain filter to empty any water in the bottom hose.
Remove - two screws at the top of the front panel, two screws either side of the door lock, one screw just below the door.
Lift the front panel off of the retaining pegs and pull away as far as the door seal will allow. Pulling away the top of the sensor pipe gives a bit more movement.
Now you can either remove the door seal and take off the front panel, or do as I did, which is just move it slightly to the side, giving access to the screws of the left hand side panel. Remove all screws for the left panel and it's easy to get off.
Now you have good access to the pump and bottom hose. The bottom hose has two clips on the tub end, but only the top clip needs loosening to remove from the tub.
Remember to mop up any water from the bottom tray when finished or you'll get a flood fault.

What does LF stand for in the display window?

It means long fill and it flashes when the water fill time exceeds ten (10) minutes and the water valves are turned off. Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

It is likely that the water inlet valves are not working. Check if there's water in the tub when the fault code flashes. The water inlet valves are not working if there's no water in the tub.

B-60 Keurig. Does not give proper fill. The steam is weak.Stops in the middle of the filling cup process. Works fine if I just run water through it. Have descaled numerous times per Keurig instructions. I...

1. Power off machine.

2. Using a metal paperclip, insert it into left side of top needle. It must insert at least 1" deep. Insert it into slot on right side and again from back of needle.

3. Remove KCup cradle. Separate bottom from top. In the top section, insert the paperclip up into bottom needle from the bottom upwards. It will not go all the way thru and this is normal.

4. Reassemble KCup cradle and reinsert it back into coffee maker.

5. Power on machine.

6. Brew a cup of water only. There may be coffee grounds in the water and these should eventually clear during the remaining steps. NOTE: A large cup brew cycle should output a full 8 ounces (235cc). Less means there is still a blockage

Dishwasher beeps constantly and gives fault code that the flood switch has been activated. Neither drawer will trun off. It seems the fan keeps going, and is very noisy. It worked fine last night.

Hello there:
here is some ideas that will help you clean off the flood switch thatis causing the error
first unplug the power going to the machine
If you by accident overloaded the top drawer and this will allow water to get into the base an trigger the flood switch. which causes the error that you get .
Take the bottom drawer cover off first then took the whole drawer out and gently manuevere it to where u can get into the bottom of the unit.
use a towel and dry up any visible water.
use few paper towels to get into and under tight spaces.
now Take a blow dryer and blow the in the base for about 10 minutes. once there is No visible signs of water any where
put it back together and it should work . ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael

Washer runs wont pump water out

You have a sock stuck in the tub at the tub to pump drain area.
You can take a wire coat hanger and straighten it out. Bend a "U" in one end. Fish it down between the tubs at the drain location and pull out whatever is stuck. If this does not work, you will have to remove the inner tub to get to it.

Water fill problem

Not enough water in tub

Mderford, on a normal fill, the water should be just above the filter screen. 1.8 gallons first fill, 1.7 on all other fills. Don't think it would be a siphoning problem as you are not having this on the pots/pans. Check the float, make sure it is not sticking. You can check the inlet valve filter screen to see if it is not plugged. Run it through the diagnostics cycle by pushing high temp-air dry-high temp-air dry. Some models it's heated dry-normal-heated dry-normal. It will run through a self test for about 20 minutes. See if any error codes come up. Fill time should be approx. 1:30 to 1:40 seconds. If any of the aformentioned doesn't turn up any results, then it's possibly a faulty fill valve drive circuit on the control back.
