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

In the user manual there's a section on how to clean the non-return valve. It's the plastic piece under the wire below the triple filter. Why did you pull out the machine? Did you kink the drain hose? If you don't find a clogged valve, spin the impeller wheel several times. It's under the valve inside the bottom hole where the valve came out.
Now here's the important step- Reset the fault! Power off/on the unit. If the light blinks when you turn it on, Press and hold the start button 4 seconds with the door open. Find the combination of off/on buttons to press to reset the machine in the user manual.
(Note: If the machine runs continuously as soon as you pressed on the power button, then you have water under the unit in the safety pan. Call Miele for help.) Now select the normal wash cycle close the door and start it. The drain motor always runs first. This verifies to the brain how much water is inside the machine when it starts filling. The drain pump runs for half a minute. If you hear it running with no drain check the drain hose especially if it's connected to a disposal. Clean the disposal.. If it's not running at all the light will go on again before filling, call Miele. If the machine fill up with fresh water, the drain works. Watch and listen when the light comes on. Is it filling or did it start circulating? Open the door, are the baskets are dripping wet? Then it filled and circulated. If the light comes on several miutes later then call Miele.

The intake/drain light blinks. How do I fix this problem?

SOURCE: I have a miele g892sc

I had the same problem and I was able to fix it by trying to reset the machine. You push the on/off button for 5 seconds to reset and then disconnect the machine. I also check the drain for clogs. I found that the problem is with the water sensor on the drain. it is telling the controller that there is water in the drain so the impellers keep turning to flush the system. I pour CLR solution into the drain and let it sit for a few hour and then plug in the machine. It is working fine now.

If you checked the intake water filter and drain filter and still have this problem -- Try this...

1 - You need to take the diswasher out.
2 - Turn it on its side so you can access the bottom panel.
3 - Unscrew the bottom panel
4 - Take off the electric circulation motor (big electric motor with a bunch of hoses going into it (it is the biggest motor -- not the small motor at the front of the machine (this thing actually screws in place from the back of the machine). To take the motor off - just unscrew the bolt from the back of the machine and wiggle the thing out from the seal.
5 - Unscrew the 4 screws (need a one of those special star screw drivers) that hold the motor to the pump mechanism
6 - Turn the wheel to unseize the motor -(it takes very little pressure to do this) and reinstall it -- it will very likely work again (if it does not - you need to replace this motor)

There is apprently an easier way to do this from inside the machine - but meile technicians have a special tool to go in and turn the motor blade to unseize this. It takes very little pressure and I think it would be a crime to pay someone else to do this -- it is so simple....

So, in summary, first check to make sure there are no blockages in the filters - then try this...

good luck!

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.

It sounds like there are some faulty wiring connections to the motor.

You will have to check your wiring from the timer to the motor.

Does it do the same thing if you select a different cycle on the push buttons?

The wiring diagram should be in the bottom access panel of the dishwasher or in the control panel.

Red intake light comes on and dishwasher will not drain, model g 843 scvi


The manual is available here: http://www.miele.ca/miele/canada/OperatingInstructions/manuals.asp?ParFolder=Dishwashers&SubFolder=Previous%20models . Scroll down through the list to the G643 G843 Incognito. The maintenance items listed below are detailed on page 44 and beyond of the manual.

The Intake light is also the Drain error light. If the light is flashing, then turn off the dishwasher and clean the triple filter, the drain pump and the non return valve and make sure that there are no kinks in the drain hose.

Make sure the water is ccoming in at a pressure above 4.5 psi. Also make sure that the water valve is open and clean the water intake filter.

The final possibility is that the Waterproof system has tripped and you need a Miele technician to service the unit.

I 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

How to fix a Miele W1213 Touchtronics washer when the intake and drain light is blinking? power for drain motor is only 20V drain motor not working,but I am tested with 220V end is o.k.


Unfortunately you need a Service Rep out there to check the electronics - how old is the machine? - Warranty? the drain pump should be 220 or 120 depending on the model.
