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.

Good luck.

I have just had the same problem. Dishwasher on as normal, no water going in-EEEEk, did everything the manual said to clean drain pump and non return value, no change. Then I read answer above from wcredentino and low and behold, dishwasher immediately started and no call to service man tomorrow- yay, thanks 'wcredtino' However, for me, holding both buttons at once didn't work, reset occurred when I held the on/off switch down for 5 seconds- when I held it down with the start/stop button the problem persisted.

The Miele G5300sc Error F51 usually relates to the Heater Pressure Switch.

Replace the heater relay or heater pressure switch.

Check the circulation pump.

you may have something rapped around the impellers of the circulation pump causing low water pressure. the unit will start and stop to try to clear the blockage. if the circulation pump is really jammed the inlet/drain light will light. it could be a faulty pressure switch but they are not common to fail.

Hope this helps

I think you might be confusing this page with the company website. Search the internet for the local supplier in your area. This is a Q and A site for help and advise :)

Try ordering directly from the manufacturer or Amazon or eBay..it should come with all necessary parts, but double check the package...stem, knob etc..

Sounds like a faulty sensor in the rinse aid compartment. You could try putting warm water in to displace the rinse aid. This might help to free up the sensor if it is either stuck or blocked with residue. You might need to do this several times over a few hours before you notice any change. Don't put boiling water in though, this could destroy the seal

You have a piece of debris stuck in the impeller of the pump. Food, glass etc. Remove the screen bottom of the tub and clean. Might need to shop vac it, or remove the pump to get the debris out

Unplug for a minimum of 5 mins, whilst waiting check there are no blockages in the spinners & water spray points & on the back of the draws where they connect to the water pipes at the back that they are not blocked or full of grease, then plug back in, pu it through a cleaning cycle whilst empty of all dishes, if no joy, hold down the on/off button a while until it bleeps & flashes leave for 2 mins this will force the pcb to reboot, then unplug again for a further 5 mins & then plug in & try again, if this doesn't work then I'm afraid it's an engineer visit, hope this helps
