Question about Miele Incognito G818SCVi Built-in Dishwasher
The intake drain light comes on and flashes. The washer tries to run, I hear water starting to fill, then it stops. I open the door and the intake/drain light is flashing. I tried three to four times and with all the same results. What is wrong? results

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

I had the same problem with my Miele g843, and i finally got to the root problem.
My machine would drain ok, and fill ok, but when it tried to start a cycle, it would do nothing. I could hear a relay occassionally clicking until it finally gave up and signalled the blinking red light of death.
I first checked the inlet filter, drain pump and drain pipe but I discovered no obstructions. So I started taking the dishwasher apart, and discovered that the main pump was seized! This may not be the source of YOUR problem, since it could be many things, but this worked for me. Here are the instructions to remove the pump and get it moving again:
Pull out the dishwasher and disconnect the power, water and drain lines.
Empty all water from the unit (disconnect drain line and let the water drain into a low profile container) you may have to elevate the unit and tilt it rearwards to get the remaining water out.
Remove the side panels of the machine.
Lay the unit on its side elevated about 2-4 inches above the ground (be careful you don't put direct pressure on any of the internal components when you support it)
Remove the 4 screws that hold the base panel to the frame of the machine.
You can now see the motor.
Disconnect the electrical connections to the motor and the pressure sensor.
Disengage the clamps that hold the rubber hoses to the motor and slide the hoses off the motor.
Unscrew the single bolt that holds the motor inplace on the back panel of the machine. Pry the rear panel out slightly to release the dowel pins and gently pull the motor towards you (pivoting on the inlet grommet). Once you have the motor out, you can try to manually turn it by rotating the impeller. If it is stiff, you could have the same problem mine had. Using silicon spray with a nozzle extension, spray the seal between the impeller housing and the motor and continue to spin the motor manually until it becomes free spinning. If this doesnt work for you, you may need a new motor ( i never priced one out but it cant be cheap ).
If you get stuck somewhere email me and i can send you pictures: vector006 at hotmail dot com

the unit will not fill with water until it will drain as it needs to complete the drain function before it can move onto the next step.
make sure the non return valve under the filter is properly fitted in the sump of the unit. then check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects to the sink u bend. This is the most common causes of a blocked drain.
