My name is XXXXX XXXXX X am an authorized Miele service tech and I can help you today.
the f13 error code is a Water intake fault: Heater pressure switch fault.
to check and fix do this. this is straight out of the tech sheet for your machine. please let me know if you have any questions.
he program is interrupted and the drain pump is operated. The display shows the message Water intake fault F13. After approximately 2 to 4 minutes, the buzzer is activated for 2 minutes. This fault is registered when the desired number of pulses, which varies depending on program, has not been detected within a certain given time (maximum 4 minutes). If the selected program starts with a water softener flushing cycle, the fault code register check is carried out earlier. In the event of a fault, the selected program is interrupted after approximately 30 seconds and the fault is indicated. Cause:On-site water supply not in order. Remedy:The on-site water supply should be checked by a specialist. Cause:Water inlet valve defective. Remedy:Check the water inlet valve and replace it if necessary. Cause:Flow meter B3/4 is providing too few pulses. Remedy:1. Check WPS valve Y2 (filter, restrictor disc). 2. Remove the left side panel. 3. Check that the plate with the reed switch on flow meter B3/4 is seated correctly. 4. Check that the reed switch connection plug is seated correctly. 5. Replace the reed switch, if necessary. 6. Check the control lead from the electronic to flow meter B3/4. 7. Replace the water inlet mixer, if necessary. Cause:Water flow pressure at on-site water supply is less than 14.5 pounds per square inch (1 bar). Remedy:1. Check the water intake. 2. If voltage is present at the electronic for the solenoid valve, check the solenoid valve Y2 leads for continuity. 3. Check the filter at WPS valve Y2. Cause:Filter in WPS clogged. Remedy:1. Disconnect the machine from the power supply. 2. Close the on-site water supply. 3. Unscrew the WPS from the on-site water supply. 4. Remove the washer from the threaded union. 5. Remove the filter with needlenose pliers. 6. Clean or replace the filter as necessary.
basically the short simplified version of the above is to check that there is good water pressure to the machine and the water filter is not blocked or clogged.
if the filter and water supply is good then the water flow system needs to be changed out. it is common for these model machines.

I got the cycle to get past the error (the error that did not display a code and occured after 1 min - beeping occured and light flashed). Right after I started the cycle, I was moving the intake hose around and it sounded like I un-kinked it (kinked was after the water connection and the large box) and then I could hear the water flow to the machine. So far, the cycle is going as normal. I will keep an eye on it for the rest of the night. Could the intake hose need replaced?
