SOURCE: Miele G851 SC intake/drain light flashing

Hi Dadcar, Your main wash pump has seized (or stuck). Disconnect machine from power & water, Tip machine on its back. Remove screws that hold the bottom tray on. Remove hoses to main motor, remove electrical connections & remove motor (one screw that holds motor is actually on the outside back of the machine(you will see what I mean). Try to rotate (unstick) the motor (this can sometimes be done by spraying a bit of WD40 and trying to rotate the impellor with a pencil (careful not to break any of the fins on the impellor. If you cannot rotate it, then a new motor will be required. Replace back in machine in reverse to removal. Good luck...I hope the motor turns for you. PS Whilst you haven't used the machine very much, this in itself is a problem and can cause motors & pumps to stick, and seals to perrsh. Try to use the machine at least once a month. Kind regards

SOURCE: I have a Miele G841

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

My dish washer is not draining


Is the Intake/Drain light in the front dislay is flashing? if so, the drain hose might be clogged most probably. Most of the times accumulation occurs where the drain hose connects to the drain pipe under the kitchen sink. This can be easly cleaned by disconnecting the hose and removing any food waste from the pipe and hose. The other cause could be the check valve near the drain pump contaminated. The check valve is located near the bottom filter. This check valve is secured with a wire bracket and can be easly removed upon slidding the wire bracket. Rinse the valve and make sure the ball inside moves freely. Also verify and clean the ports where the check valve connects.

Good luck!

Electrolux professional series not pumping water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

My Miele dishwasher has water in the bottom of it and won't run


Check the impeller on the pump to make SURE it's turning freely. There could be a piece of debris wedged in there - like glass or a screw from a pot handle. If this is redundant, I apologize.

The fan during the drying cycle makes a scratching noise


There could be water stuck inside the fan because the drain tube that runs into the combination dispenser is clogged. If this is the case the door would have to be removed in order to gain access the the hose. If you have a custom panel that will have to be removed first by opening the torx 20 screws on the upper right and left side (the screws only loosen they do not come out). After that panel has been removed you have three screws on the right and left of the door when its opened. Once these screws are removed the door panel will come off and you have access to the fan and tube. Remove the tube and clean it out; you could also stick a toothpick inside the opening of the fan where the tube connects and clean that out. If this does not help then the fan would have to be changed because a solenoid is sticking.

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.

Intake/drain light on


This happens to me occasionally. There is a long thin bottom panel along the floor. Then there is another panel behind it. Behind, there is a pan that holds water. If too much water gets in that pan the intake/drain light comes on. Take those two panels off, feel in the pan, if there is water pooled, then wet vacuum the pan dry. That solved my problem and saved me about $200. I got that info from the miele advisors. That is what it is about 90% of the time if it isn't that intake valve.

Intake drain light flashing


1. Unscrew air gap which is on the counter-top next to sink.
2. Unscrew drain clamp under the sink which s connected to the air gap.
3. Use a wire hanger to push down debris clogging the drain.
4. Screw clamp and air gap back in place.
5. The dishwasher should work. Routinely clean out air gap every half year.
