I had a problem where my G842Plus dishwasher would run through the prewash and then the intake/drain light would start blinking and it wouldn't work. There would be water in the bottom of the dishwasher. After cleaning out various items to no avail, we called Miele technical support and they told us to reset the codes and then keep trying it over and over until it worked.
Here is how we reset the codes:

  • Turn dial to stop/off
  • Turn dial to Normal Plus
  • Press Start
  • Press power
  • Then press the start button for one second and let go

Miele repairman showed me how to fix this. Why Customer Care doesn't suggest it is a mystery! Miele even issued a tool to repair people to use and my repairman showed it to me!
Remove the big filter screen in the bottom of the dishwasher. The white plastic intake/drain pipe is centered underneath. Take a metal spoon handle (I used a teaspoon with about a 3/8" flat end on the handle---I guess you could use a slot screwdriver with about the same width tip) and insert the handle end into the side pipe and turn it---it moved/freed a propeller or something---didn't require much force, just a gentle, deliberate turn, not enough to break anything. Dishwasher started up as soon as I shut the door.

Repairman said the problem most often occurs when dishwasher isn't used frequently and the part gets stuck over time.

Dishwasher turns on but the intake drain light goes on and dishwasher is on but not actually running...how do i fix it?


The fault is possibly linked to the water intake circuit.

Either the inlet tap is closed or the water inlet filter is blocked or the intake valve is simply faulty.

See pages 33 and 46 in the user manual.

Hope this helps fix the problem. Please rate the solution if suitable or post a comment.

hi,

most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely.
Hope this helps.

Miele Intake/Drain light on/flashing and the dishwasher just shuts down.


hi,

this is a general fault light which could mean anything without a Miele Technician coming out and connecting a laptop to the unit. However most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage.
Hope this helps.

Miele G841 Built in. Intake/Drain light on/flashing and the dishwasher just shuts down.


I had a similar problem with a different Miele. I found that under the door, there is a removable trim panel (may not be one on yours). Under the trim panel was an acoustically sealed metal plate held by a couple of screws. i switched off and disconnected the electrity, then removed the plate. The bottom tray was filled with a big puddle. I cleaned that up and put the machine back together and it ran fine. Accordingly, I'm getting some replacement shaft seals for the thing as it looks like its worth fixing. Good luck with yours. rupertvdP
