Miele Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I have seen the float in the drip pan stuck in the up position before. If this happens, it wont let your machine fill. You will have to check underneath to confirm if this has happened.

The circ pump cam with a new seal for the housing - if the new seal is leaking I would remove the pump and rest it - there may be a piece of debris causing the leak

Typically in the field we test this by starting a normal mode cycle and hold the WPS module in our hand. if after the drain cycle is complete and you feel a small vibration in the module - then the WPS is faulty (common) if no vibration is felt then the control board is failing to supply the WPS with the control voltage to open the solenoid

It is a mechanical Problem - there is a leak the is going into the drip tray - when water collects there a float switch is activated turning on the drain pump and ceasing all other functions - the machine will operate normally again if this water evaporates - lowering the float switch

I have a Miele Futura from about 2011. In 2019, I had the issue were all three yellow lights, cleaning, drying, and end, were flashing, initially after a cycle was running and later, after several resets, almost immediately after trying begin a cycle. I strongly suggest watching Scott the Fix It Guy on YouTube. He shows that there are basically 3 different reasons why. 1. A leak that is tripping the leak sensor. Put the dishwasher on buckets and watch for a leak without the drip pan. If no leak, check the motor. He shows how to remove and inspect. If there is something in the impeller it will trip those three flashing lights. I did that and found no blockages and that too didn't fix it. The final source is the heater / pressure switch. So I ordered that from Miele ($75) replaced it and now it runs great!!

I have a star sapphire Thermador dishwasher that has similar adjustments and if you search your model of Miele and follow that with "inside view" you will probably find a view where you can tell how they're supposed to be placed. It worked for me.

Could be soap buildup in the dispenser or on the door hinges. Try running leaving the dispenser door open and run a wash only cycle. It may wash out any soap buildup.

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.
