Appliance Repair Questions? Ask a Technician for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm David. I'll be helping you solve your problem. From the Miele service manual for your dishwasher:
Service Mode 2 is used to determine which upper electronic is in the appliance, to change programmed functions and to access fault codes. Programmed functions include increasing the water temperature, turning on or off the water softener, adding an interim rinse, and setting the dishwasher width (24”). Service Mode 2 is divided into 3 stages.
Stage Stage function Illuminated lightStage 1 Fault codes Rinse
Stage 11. To access Stage 1 of Service Mode 2, close the door and turn the dishwasher on. The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.2. Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and Salt lights and a lit Rinse light indicate successful accessing ofStage 1 of Service Mode 2.3. Use the fault code chart (Table 3-5) to determine the stored fault code.Example: A lit Normal Plus light and a lit Rinse light = NTC or NTC connections short-circuited.4. To delete stored fault codes, access the Programming Mode and press Start/Stop twice.

I hope that's all coherent. The above is the first process you need to do, this will tell you which, if any, fault codes are present. Do the diagnostic procedure and come back here with the fault code for further diagnosis.
