F11 - Drainage fault

This code means that water present in appliance and is not being drained off. The display shows Drain fault F11. The buzzer is activated for 2 minutes.

Background information:
After each drain pump step, the circulation pump operates for 2 seconds and heater pressure switch B1/13 checks the water level. If it is too high (large quantity of residual water remaining in the cabinet), the drainage time is extended. If, after a further check, the water level is still too high, then the program is interrupted, the fault code is saved and the drain pump is activated. Fault code F11 is also registered if heater relay 1K1 is not activated after the fault code F51 register check; see Section 080-3.18. Drain hose kinked. Remedy: Check the drain hose for correct positioning.

Cause: Drain blocked.
Remedy:
1. Clean the on-site drain.
2. Check the sump drain.
3. Check the filters.
4. Check the heater pressure switch and replace it if necessary.

Cause:
Ball in non-return valve in sump has not opened (e.g., jammed).
Remedy:
Clean the non-return valve in the sump or replace it if necessary. Cause: Foreign objects in the drain pump.

Remedy:
Clean the drain pump and its impeller.

Cause:
Drain pump defective.
Remedy:
1. Check the voltage supply to the drain pump.
2. If correct voltage is present, check the drain pump motor winding.
3. Replace the drain pump, if necessary.

Cause:
Foreign objects in heater pressure switch.
Remedy:
Check the heater pressure switch for blockages and correct switching point.

Cause:
Heater relay defective. Heater relay (coil or contacts) becomes defective during the drainage step (after fault code F51 register check).
Remedy:
Replace the heater relay.

In other cases, owners found a piece of wood inside the door latch mechanism and removed it. The F11 error has not appeared since.

Hope ths helps.

Miele Advanta dishwasher beeping


Buzzer
The end of a program and faults can be
announced by a buzzer tone.
The buzzer at the end of a program
sounds five times in intervals with a
brief break in between. The buzzer
sounds up to one hour if the
dishwasher is not turned off.
The buzzer for a fault sounds
continuously. The buzzer sounds for up
to two minutes if the dishwasher is not
turned off or the fault is fixed.
The buzzer is activated by default. It
can be set to off, so it does not sound
at the end of a program. The buzzer for
a fault cannot be set to off.
^ Open the door.
^ Turn the dishwasher off o.
^ Press the program button and at the
same time turn the dishwasher on g.
Hold the program button until the
lower right program indicator comes
on.
If it does not come on, start over.
^ Press the program button briefly four
times.
The "Intake/Drain" indicator flashes 4
times in intervals.
The upper right program indicator
shows if the program end buzzer is
turned on or off.
- Upper right program indicator
flashes: Buzzer is turned on
- Upper right program indicator is off:
Buzzer is turned off
it is not easy to disable the buzzer. you have to hold the buttons down exactly the way it tells you to in the manual. you also have to pay attention to the lights and make sure they are flashing the proper sequences. try it two or three times. you will eventually get the hang of it. not sure where you live, but the miele techs have a computer that allows them to disable the beeper if you are unsuccessful. the proceedure is copied below.



^ To change the setting, press the
program button until the
"Intake/Drain" indicator lights.
^ Press the program button briefly
three times.
The setting is saved.
^ Turn the dishwasher off o.

Miele LaPerla Dishwasher showed fault code F174 at 27 hours operation. How can I get a copy of the Miele fault codes? I pay for Remote Monitor and did not receive an alert. What is fault code F174?


Hi - I have not come across a fault code F147 on a miele dishwasher, the highest being F112, are you sure its not F47 instead, this relates to a faulty electronic controller unit.

From what I know of LaPerla the model G2830 series and even the faults does not have a F147 amongst the chart.

Miele Dishwasher does not start


hi,

F51 fault is more than likely the heater relay is faulty but it could be your circulation pump is jammed up. if you are confident you can easily replace the replace the relay if it is faulty. you would need to put a meter across the terminals. if it is ok then the pump is blocked. if you are not confident you would require a service call. Miele have there own deadicated service team if you live in a metro area

hope this helps.

I disconnected the drain where it enters the S bend from the sink. I found the nozzle into the S bend was blocked. I probed this with a screwdriver and cleared the blockage then I reconnected the drain. I turned on the dishwasher again and the F11 code was cleared. The dishwasher operated ok again.
