Miele Immer Besser Dishwasher - constant error messages F13 & F11
Have had my Miele for 4 years and despite general usage dishwasher constantly goes into error mode and stops working. Have had the Miele recommended technician attend to it with replacement parts on 3 occasions at cost to us but continues with error messages and stoppage. First error message was F13 and now its F11. Can Miele help rectify this?
No satisfied at all. Two dishwashers since 2006, so have decided that we will never purchase another Meile. We always rinse our dishes before we place them in the dishwasher & clean the waste basked once a week & put in finish dishwasher cleaner every 4 to 6 weeks. Received F14 message.
Purchased for $1,199.00.
Machine stopped working 4 months out of warranty.(2years 4Months)
Happy with the machine as it performed well originally however the controls started to play up after approximately 12 months but unit was still operable. Now has no power to control panel at all.
Best Washer ever
I wouldn't chose anything else than Miele. Miele is my go to especially for dishwashers. My parents one is over 25 years old and still going strong. Ours is now 6.5 years. It's extremely quiet too.

Miele dishwasher stopped working after 3 years
Brought this Dishwasher 3 1/2 years ago and it now has completely stopped working. Front panel fails to light up making all controls, including the power button, non functional. Called Miele tech support and was told I would have to spend almost $250 to have it serviced. We were told Miele was the most reliable brand when we bought it from the authorized dealer!? Not true in our case!
Purchased in April 2016 for $600.00.
Quiet, efficient, fantastic after sale backup over 5 years. Renovating another property, will have Meile everything there as well, Boss insists, we she goes Meile goes. I said don't take with you, we will get a good deal on the best model available and leave this one here.
Do not recommend the retailer however.
Purchased in September 2014 at Rather not say for $2,100.00.
Motor blew up a few months after warranty. Miele repair man told us “he sees it a lot” and we should buy a Bosch.
The motor stopped after three years.
Our Dishes often came out dirty.
We rinsed our dishes first.
The Dishwasher didn’t get clogged.
The Controls were easy to use.
Washing times are very long.
The machine was much noisier that the new one we bought to replace it.
A real dishwasher
Great dishwasher, it cleans everything really well. Purchased over a month ago. Love the auto sense, no scrapping plates, it runs quietly, not too many dials and buttons, so easy to use. Recently cleaned my BBQ plates and racks, was amaze at how clean they turned out.

Way better than an LG
Bought this a month ago after fighting with a LG dishwasher for the last few years. It cleans the plates and easily without the need wash off. Haven’t had any issues yet. It was a great price from Harvey Norman. It is whisper quiet and easy to stack with the top cutlery tray.

I adore the Miele dishwasher. My favourite features are the great wash that it does and its super quiet operation. I rarely get anything left on the dishes at the end of the cycle. Occasionally if this happens, it is due to poor placement of the item inside the washer, for example a large saucepan may affect the water flow and infrequently an item above it may have something left on it after the wash.
My wash philosophy is to let the machine do the work so mostly, items I've put in the washer have not been rinsed and almost always come ou...t perfectly clean. I have not had any maintenance issues with the dishwasher and rarely have to clean the filters. I also love the easily adjustable top rack and the cutlery tray. The economy cycle does take a couple of hours and this is the program that I mostly use. There are other faster options available if needed. I would highly recommend this appliance.
Cleans really well.
I’ve had this dishwasher for a while now. A friend who is in the market for a new one asked me recently what i thought of it. I decided now would be a good time to talk about it’s positives and shortcomings.
I did recommend a Miele, but not this model based on my experiences below.
We purchased this dishwasher after many hours of research to replace a 10yr old Lg which just was not cleaning our dishes well at all.
Clean wine glasses are important to us and putting them through a dishwasher is essential. Especially after a dinner party ...
Quality at a good Price
I'd done a lot of research before buying my Previous Miele dishwasher. That was in 2001. We needed to replace it URGENTLY in August this year. Purchased the current version and it fitted perfectly into the existing space. There are a few design changes. It does dry better and is quieter than the old model. The standard cutlery tray is excellent and the stacking very flexible. Good choice of programs and it does a great job. Recommended.
And we got it on discount :)
I love this dishwasher. It cleans everything thoroughly. It is very very quiet, I had to check it was on when I first got it because it so quiet and I was used a loud machine. Easy clean and stylish. Couldn't be happier. When it eventually wears out in years to come, I will buy another one.
Decent microwave for the size
Its stylish and have awesome features also it has different kool modes for running the product it washes all the dishes really well with powerful water pressure modes in the dishwasher machine it runs quiet with a Stainless Steel style look I give it 5 stars for this product.

Entry level brilliance
Owned this dishwasher for around 3 weeks and used multiple times per day ( we have 3 small kids). Fantastic build quality and cleans much better compared to any other make I've owned. The cutlery tray is so much easier to use than a basket and saves loads of space plus it's very quiet. This is effectively an entry level model but don't let that put you off - it may only have basic programs but they work superbly and frankly, we don't really need any more for our household - dinner parties aren't really an option right now....The timer is another bonus as we have low rate electricity at night. Very happy so far
I have had several issues with my Miele dishwasher - upon contacting the company I have been told I am in to rural a location for them to assist me with servicing my dishwasher. To me I was happy to spend the extra money on a good quality appliance as it would last me longer in the end. This certainly has not been the case and my overall experience in dealing with Miele and the customer service I have received has been terrible. Not a happy customer at all Miele
Faultless so far!
This dishwasher replaced a faulty Bosch. (Bosch later replaced it, after I'd already bought the Miele. It's now sitting unopened).
I'm so happy with the dishwasher. It is a great size internally & made even bigger with the separate cutlery tray, which leaves more room in the bottom rack for plates & pots.
I always use the hottest setting & everything comes out spotless - every time.
It's super quiet compared to other brands I've owned.
What I noticed especially when comparing this to other brands in the shop, was how effortlessly the drawer...
I put I some really dirty dishes and in 1.5hrs my dishes were clean. I love of the auto where it sense how dirty the dishes to the program and like the trays for knife and forks. Ovsrall have been very pleased with it.
The shelves can be lower to add pots and pans.
Stopped working after 7 months
I bought mine last October and in May this year it began showing F87 error and while I was waiting for the warranty repair to come and fix it, which took two weeks, the whole front panel blacked out. Literally the guy had to replace the pump and the from panel. Since then he’s told me not to use Finish Quantum tablets cause they can cause the motor to go unless you wash on hot cycles.
Disappointed as I paid AUD1200 so I don’t have to worry about repairs and now I have a repaired dishwasher.

Questions & Answers
Does this model require both hot and cold water connection
Thank you for your question. The Operating Manual for this dishwasher model states: "The dishwasher may be connected to a cold or hot water supply, max. 60c. We would only recommend connection to hot water supply if it is economical. i.e a solar powered supply. When connected to a hot water supply, all programmes will be carried out with hot water." I hope this helps answer your question.
Machine washes well, but drying is poor, especially on plastic kitchen utensils and plastic containers.
Any recommendations? Yes we are using all the correct dishwasher additives so thats not the problem.
Hi Everyone, I bought a Miele G4203 in May 2018 and used it less than 20 times because my wife prefers to wash dishes by hand. Last week I decide to take over dishwashing chore and found the red light of inlet and drain on and flashing. I checked both inlet and drain filters strictly according to the manual three times but in vain. the Error code is F12. What is the problem? I trust German made quality and refused to believe it needs professional repair. Could anyone have the same problem? Thank you
Again, I checked the water inlet pump it works normal since there is new water coming in when I restart the machine. I also checked the drainage pipe and it works normal as well since the water can come out. It seems to me the the only problem could be the impeller pump which circulars the water inside. But the machine is less than two years old. The pump shouldn't be broken!
I had the same sounding issue and it was a $700 repair within 3 years of ownership. I replaced it with a Bosch and its way better.
