Question about Miele 24 in. G638 Plus Free-standing Dishwasher
I have a Miele DW.G638. The DW seems to get almost to the end of it"s cycle the stops. The Inlet/drain indicator flashes.When you open the cabinet and look inside there is some water in the bottom.However when you restart the water is drained away.Any thoughts as to why it does not finish it"s programmed cycle.It seems to stop before drying time.
These days everything is a computer, check all lines(water in) & (drain line) then there is a water sensor at the bottom of the unit, if the dtain pump keeps running; there is a leak & trouble shoot to find it. If all checks out it's the control board in the door. It will usually be the 1st thing to go bad.

It could be a clogged in the drain line. Often the problem is at the point where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household drain line. You should remove this line and clear it form any debris in the hose or the hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher again. Good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. You would need to check for air gap on the dishwasher, it may be clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining, sometimes the drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized (or stuck) drain pump. Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections & remove motor (single screw holds motor, it is on the outside back of the machine). Try to rotate the motor (use WD40 is necessary). If you cannot rotate it, then motor will be required. If the error still appears then cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Switch the appliance off and then back on again. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
