Hello, I'm David, I'm a tech/owner with 13+ years of in home appliance repair experience. I've done over 15k repairs. I'll be helping you today. The first thing to do a Miele is check for fault codes, this will give us a better idea of what's actually happening.
To check for fault codes on your model follow the instructions below exactly as they are written:
1. Press and hold program buttons 2 and 3 while turning the dishwasher on.
Successful accessing of Service Mode 2 is indicated by flashing Salt and
Intake/Drain lights.
2. Press the flashing program button 5.
3. Press the flashing program button 1.
4. One of the program button lights (1 to 5) will light up, indicating a stored fault code of F0 - F4. If none of the program buttons light up, a fault code of F5 - F9 is stored. To display fault codes F5 - F9, press program button 6 once. Program button 6 will light along with one of the other program buttons (1 to 5), indicating a fault code of F5 - F9.
Then check the chart at this link to see what fault code you have:
Let me know what codes you find and we can proceed from there.
