I cleaned out the drain pump and non-return valve on my Miele G658/858 Incognito and that fixed the problem. It's easy to do. In order: 1. Turn off washer. 2. Remove the triple filter (the basket on the bottom of washer with the little handle. Turn the handle and remove) rinse out and set-aside. 3. Remove the standing water. I used a wet vac to remove the standing water from the bottom of the machine, but you can scoop it out also. 4. Tilt the locking clamp (tilt left) to the side. (this is a metal wire covering the white plastic valve. This valve is to the right of the triple filter basket.) 5. Pull out the non-return valve and rise will under running water. You may have to wiggle the valve a little. Pull straight up and out. 6. The drain pump is beneath the non-return valve. (it has a little plastic propeller, like a paddle wheel, inside) 7. Spin the propeller several times in both directions to make sure it's clear. ( I used the shop vac with a small hose attachment to clear the drain above the propeller compartment) 8. Carefully refit the non-return valve and secure it with the locking clamp. 9. Refit and lock the filter in place.
I haven't had a problem since and my dished are much cleaner- The problem must have been coming on for a long time.
Hope this helps,
Susan

At the bottom left corner their is a manual draining system maybe you need to use that with a bucket.
thats all i can think of unless it still has warranty just trade it in.

ALL LIGHTS ON PANEL ARE FLASHING??


All the lights on my incognito started to flash. This was after the drain/intake light started to flash also. I called Miele and they helped me to reset the lights flashing. They said that when all lights are flashing that this indicates an overheat condition. They asked if my filters were clean and I thought they were. However, my wife had started to use liquid dish washing detergent and the liquid detergent had plugged up the filter screen at the bottom of the dishwasher. I cleaned it good with a scrub brushing and boiling water. This fixed the problem. Bottom line, don't use liquid dish washing detergent in a Miele, only powder.

How do i add salt to miele incognito?


There is a cap inside the dishwasher on the bottom right side, unscrew it and dump a full box of salt in. Clean up any spilled salt and run a rinse and hold cycle to remove any salt residue. Miele recommends using their own salt, available online at www.mieleusa.com or at a local Miele dealer. They don't recommend using water softener salt or table salt. For more help call their tech support at 800.999.1360, they are very helpful.

I've been having isses with my Miele Incognito dishwasher. Water comes into the unit but cycle won't start. Technician on the phone said to take an 8mm wrench and try to loosen the circulting


your circulation pump is stuck. there is nothing you can do with a wrench, your tech is mistaken. the only thing you can do is to drain all the water out. after the drain cycle, stop the machine and turn it off. remove the triple filter in the bottom, and bail as much water out as possible. soak it up with a sponge or paper towels etc. now put a quart of water in the microwave and heat it to boiling. pour the hot water down in the sump area of the dishwasher and let it sit for 10 mins. try to start a cycle after 10 mins. ( you can leave the filter out for now) if it works, you are done and you just saved 800 dollars. if not, try that proceedure 3 more times in a row. if it still does not work after 3 times, you will probably have to replace the circulation pump.

I have a Miele Incognito G843 SCVi Plus. In a wash mode, the cycle stops in the first serveral minutes before soap is dispensed and the Drain/Intake light flashes. In Rinse and Hold mode the unit makes...


Hi

First check if the drain hose is not clogged and try to clean it as it can be that the hose is clogged and the water is not draining properly. After that check if the drain pump filter is fine and not clogged, try to clean that as well. After this check the metal filter, impeller cover and the air gap unit. After checking this you can reset the error as follows: turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

The intake drain light is flashing and there is water in the bottom of the washer that wont drain


I had the same problem. Went through every troubleshooting tip I got. Cleaned the catch filter, checked the drain for blockage, checked the impellor to see if it was free. All was fine. Turned power off, turned back on, selected cycle and heard 1) the water drain. 2) the draw of fresh water into machine. ) all became silent and after several minute, the drain light started to flash. After getting frustrated with this isue I called Miele, they did a diagnostic over the phone by having me push a series of buttons on the panel a certain way. My machine was diagnosed by MIELE as having a bad relay switch. I was told 90 dollars plus 175 install and tech visit. I agreed. When the tech arrived he did his diagnostics, he told me MIELE reps on phone were wrong. He told me I needed a new water pump at 385.00 plus 175 install for a total of 560.00 I told him no way would I ever spend 560 + tax to repair a machine that I paid 1900 dollars for and was 4 years old. I told him I would buy a 600 dollar Samsung first before I gave him 600 for a repair. He felt his job was complete and I wasnt buying the pump story. I started questioning various things and brought up what would the appropriate soap and measure amount be for it. I told him we were currently using the Electrasol gel balls. THAT IS WHEN HE SAID, THE REASON FOR MY MALFUNCTION WAS JUST THAT. I WAS TOLD POWDER ONLY IN SMALL AMOUNTS, NOT GEL PACKETS !!!!! The gel was not dissolving completely and gumming up the impellor making it hard for it to spin. 3 weeks later machine has worked flawlessly. If you are using gel PLEASE STOP. Also I was told to squirt rinse aid in the opening under the screen, there is a **** towards the back. Remove handle and screen from inside tub. see a 2 inch wide opening, squirt the rinse aid , a small amount in there and leave overnight. This rees up the gummy residue in there. Manually run your water until its hot. And run a cycle GOOD LUCK !!!

Dishwasher does not dry completely--condensation insidethe front door miele incognito


Makre sure you use rinse aid as this helps evaporate the water at the end of the cycle. make sure the unit is also heating.

Miele g841sc dishwasher leaks


Typically the machine only uses 5-6 quarts of water, If you're floor is getting 1 or 2 quarts check for a loosly connected intake or drain hose. I've never seen any overflow drain on a Miele. It only fills the bottom of the tub. The machine uses a logic program that continuously checks the level of fill and drain by water pressure weight so it always runs with proper amount, even if your intake pressure is weak. Now, If you add too much soap then the bubbles can carry a few ounces over a worn door seal. If the seal is damaged then more spray arm water can run down the front of the machine into the float pan. But after it gets less than a pint of water the drain float will start thr drain pump and shut-off the machine controls and alert you. It won't let you run the machine until the water ( and the problem) is gone. Call Miele for help.
