I haven't worked on your model. However in general you first need to go through the user manual checks to make certain you've not got a silly. Follow their safety instructions. Manuals are available on their websites e.g. http://www.miele.com/manuals/display_manuals.aspx?bhcp=1

Check the drain pump and non return valve are OK and not blocked.

Check the inlet pipe strainer is clear, and if necessary clean it and descale it.

Check you've got water coming out of the outlet on the wall (carefully, its wet - make certain it doesn't go on the electrics)

Test the fixed drain and hose if the machine is empty by putting some water in it and then turning it on - it should drain in my experience.

If all the above is OK, its possible that the machine has leaked into the bottom tray. You'd need to shut off and disconnect the electricity then open up the bottom compartment of the machine - often a plate on the front behind the kickboard trim. If it has got water in, I'd mop it out and then put it back together. i'd then try running the machine. If it worked in that state I'd bother to replace the leaking seals e.g. on a pump shaft.

Good luck with yours.

Hi, I have a Meile G892 that has the Intake/drain light coming on. The unit fills with water, then errors out. After trying to restart it, it does drain well so I know the drain might not be an issue. ...


Hi qkoz1 - theres afew things you can try- by intake/drain perhaps should be inlet/drain same thing..

Just be careful with the dangers involved with electricity......

Perhaps the pump is faulty however - the basis of operation is as it fills the pump engages. Theres a capacitor that drives the pump accessed from the right side - panels needs removal with torqx if you're unlucky. remove top either from side/front a bung screws there or front door open look up.
remove screws on top one rear bottom & along front with door open.

if it flashes at intervals then the flowrate unit is defective - need to be savvy to sort this one out.
if flashes continously then there possibly a blockage in the inlets - remove inspect filters.
one other thing - remove trays- steel mesh on bottom-locate the steel wire spring - deflect & pull housing upwards - this reveals the front of the pump - perhaps there some unpleasant surprises.

I can guide you to replace the flowrate - but the question is if you can obtain one. Miele supplies there agents/service contractors only as far as I know.

It is possible that a low water pressure can increase the time for the program and so this can lead to the program contrroller hanging up to show the flashing.
So remove the inlet and the water line to the inlet, check the filter and the inlet valve. If the pressure seems good , check the flow when the program starts.
Also counter check on the water level sensor, the drain pump/valve. finally check the winding on the heater using a multimeter, check the power to the heater during the program.

Hi My dishwasher Miele G692 SC has the inlet/drain light illuminated. I have cleared the inlet and tap connection..... Any other suggestions before I ring Miele?


Have you checked the drain? On mine a small piece of broken glass had got past all the filters and had blocked the paddles of the pump - you have to release the spring clip and take off the top of the pump housing. Miele's seem very fussy about any blockages to the water outlet system.

You then have to hold down the start button to force a restart (cost me a call out to learn that) - but it is stated, sort of, in the problem fixing manual.
