MIele waterproof system reacted

My miele g646sc dishwasher has stopped working with the diagnostic fault being that the "Waterproof system has reacted". With the machine switched on, but not running a programme, I can hear a buzz. This buzz continues after switching on a programme. No water is taken in, no sound of the pump working, and then the red inlet/outlet warning light flashes for five seconds/stays on for five seconds etc. Can I reset the machine, or is it one for the manufacturer?

That means that there is a leak that passed throught the waterproof system, and the water protection system had reacted putting the machine on error mode, as the water can damage electric parts, and cause serious hazard.

Sometimes you can reset the error by unplugging power cord, however you should call immediately a technician, as using the appliance when there is a problem with the waterproof system, you can be seriously injured by electric shock.

Miele G646Sc Plus Inlet / Drain light activated
* If the filters are clear probably means the 'waterproof system' activated. This is a float switch in the drip tray which protects the machine if a leak develops.
* the leak from my machine came from a seal between the motor and main pump.
* How to repair - I bought my spares from ES Electrical :01282 693838 parts 112,114 & 116 which are new housing containing the seal new impellor and a large ring seal .
1. disconnect from the mains / drain as much water as possible from the machine.
2. Remove the drip tray from the underside
3. Take photos make drawings but be sure you can put all the power feeds and water hoses back in the correct places .
4.disconnect terminal blocks from the motor/ disconnect power feed to the pump switch/ disconnect all the hoses.
5. remove 8mm bolt holding the motor in place ( accessed from back)
6. Should now be able to slide the motor and the impellor housing out
7.You will need a 'star Drive' to remove the 4 screws on the outer housing.
8. The impellor inside can now be removed by stopping the blades on the motor turning and then turn impellor clockwise.
9. you should now be able to slide off the backing containing the seal.
10. fit the new parts to the motor and re-attach the outer casing and fit back into your dishwasher.

Take bottom front panel off and see if there is water in the underneath tray and this will explain the fault. the buzzing may be due to something stuck in the drain pump impellor so that is worth a check

Miele G646 SC plus I wish to remove the right hand side panel of my dishwasher. I have managed to do this with the exception of the top of this panel. Does the top surface have to be removed to release...


Hi - if i rember correctly on the sides front top panel is a plastic bung, pop this off and you would see the screws inside - oly problem is most of the later Mieles have torqx screws - anyway if you succeed the gently lift front & push backwards - the top will come off.

But the best ways is to empty the washer of water pull it away from the cabinets disconnect everything.

Lie the silly thing on its back on the bottom will be 4 screws normally this will drop the bottom panels & makes it easier for you to work on the machine.

According to the parts manual this would have a waterproof inlet valve system - typical design for Mieles.

JUST BE CAREFUL - Mieles are excellent machines, try not to damage other components - perhaps the leaks is coming from some other - Miele parts are as costly as the purchase prices.

Hope to see how you get on...

Water intake alert coming on however the water is turned on. No water seems to be entering the dishwasher.


No water intake, may be a defective intake hose valve. Miele calls it, the Waterproof System hose (WPS). However, first shut off your water valve to the dishwasher; disconnect the WPS; and inspect and clean the plastic filter. If the problem persists, then replace the WPS (~$170).

My miele dishwasher shows intake/drain light flashes, it seems to me that drain works but no water goes into the dishwasher


hi, firstly check the filter in the waterproof system where the tap is to make sure it is not blocked. turn off the water and remove the connection with the white box attached this is the waterproof system. remove the black seal and you will see the filter. pull it out with a pair of pliers and clean it.

if this is ok check to see if you have a restrictor on the tap or inside the tap and also make sure water is flowing from the tap prior to reconnecting the waterproof system.
run the unit again and when it is time for the machine to call for water you can manually fill it and see if it works using a saucepan or bucket. if this works ok you may have a stuck waterproof system and probably need to replace this.
Hope this helps

I have a Miele Deluxe G590, no water getting into machine


Hi, the most likely cause is the waterproof system faulty. Which is the large grey box connected to your water supply.It's basically two water valves in series. The appliance is timed fill, if you increase the fill time this might help.The details can be found in the instruction book.Also disconnect water proof system and check water pressure.

MieleG870sc I can hear the motor, but water does not seem to be coming in and after cycle ended, soap tablet was unused?


Hi,

First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.
