Question about Miele Dishwashers

1 Answer

How can I clear the intake/drain light on a Miele G2182?

The machine starts up and the drain flows - and functions (I have manually poured in water and had it drain out). I have checked the inlet screen, the drain system etc - all seem fine. The drain pump runs for a bit and it never turns on the water inlet solenoid (no power sent to it). The solenoid appears OK and the float switch tests Ok. Again, the unit never provides power to the inlet solenoid, it just activates the inlet/drain light. I have yet to find any instructions on how to get into service mode on this unit - I only have three buttons a program button, an On and an Off button. I have 120v going to the intake solenoid, but the controller never activates the negative connection to start the intake of water.

Your pump motor has siezed, it can be removed then spray some penetrating oil abd rotate by hand until the fan spins free and reassemble. Be sure to turn breaker for your dishwasher

Hi. The above machine stops mid cycle and drain/fill light is on, also error code F3E, have cleaned both hot and cold water inlet filters, also checked drain pump and drain line, all ok. Machine drains with no issues and fills with hot water, runs for a while then shuts down.
Any ideas?

SOURCE: Asko D3530 water inlet fault code, water valve is

All im going to say is i think you have a faulty inlet valve.the water is probably only trickling into the machine & taking forever to fill,the computer board has probably picked up that the washer is taking to long to fill & has thrown up a fault code relating to the fill or inlet valve.Also sometimes if the filters in the bottom are clogged the water cant get to the wash motor & the motor cant load up with water.The motor runs without load on it & the computer board interprets this as slow fill or inlet valve problem.

SOURCE: Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light

Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

SOURCE: Bosch Dishwasher won't drain, cancel drain lights blink

I had a similar problem and called out an engineer. When he ran it on rinse it worked fine. Said the micro chip had got confused because I kept pressing buttons. Worked fine for a few weeks and has started playing up again. I have reset it again and hope for the best!

SOURCE: Inlet/drain light flashes on miele dishwasher and

The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified

Miele Touchtronic w1203 , the intake and drain fault indicator lights are both flashing at the same time


Seems that the inlet valve or water flow is low , check the inlet flow or check for clogged filter.
Also check the lint filter and the cache filter. remove and clean drain pump. This must solve the issue.

Our 2 year old Miele dishwasher (G1182/G2182) makes a strange popping/grinding glass noise when draining. We used 1 bottle of Finish Intensive care & clean with no improvement. Any suggestions?


there is a piece of debris in the drain pump. remove the triple filter from the bottom ( the one you are supposed to clean every week to keep debris out of the drain pump) under that filter and to the left hand side you will see the non return valve. squeeze the tab and pull the non return valve out. remove the broken glass or whatever is stuck in the drain pump impeller. replace the non return valve. replace the filter. if you need a picture go to mieleusa.com, and search for your owners manual. it has step by step tutorials on how to free an obstruction from your drain pump.

Miele W1213 intake, drain and 3 - - - faults


Have had this since 2007 or 2008. Pain in the backside.
Fixed it by:
Cleaning drain.
Unplugging from power.
Tilting forward to drain water for 1-2 mins.
Made sure that the clear plastic light ***** in the rubber opening which located at the top was tight as it tends to get loose if you have an off-balance load.
Plugged power back in.
Boom, she started up.

This is a great washer/dryer, but it's expensive to fix if you need a repairman and it's a bit of voodoo if you need to do the above.

LG dishwasher LD-14AW2 starts up & tries to drain for about 2 mins & then the alarm comes on. The wash, rinse & dry lights are flashing. The hose is raised and not blocked because we can blow...


Hi Jeff - am not too savvy with LG - am a Electrolux/Miele serviceman is it possible to gain access to the drain pump from inside the unit? I think it does sound like there is a restriction somewhere perhaps the pumps not running freely.

To check you pour water inside , take the drain hose , operate machine to see how good the flow of the drain is, rule of thumb if you cover the outlet no flow then the problem.

hope this is a start..

Drain/intake light is on


A re-post from John. I am reposting because I read this post this afternoon and it fixed my Miele incognito Dishwasher.
Hi All,

Thx for all the tips. Combining your thoughts provided a solution for me.

I had the same problem (with a ***** of thanksgiving dishes to do). Turn on,
tries to drain, then that RED blinking "INTAKE/DRAIN" light, like you described.

Spent hours, checking/clearing the (grey) drain hose (The other white hose is the water input to the dishwasher). Also took out metal filter, impeller cover, poked a coat hanger in both ways to/from the drain hose connection. All seemed clear. But still the same.

But when I unhooked the grey drain hose from the air gap unit (that part going to the 4th hole in the sink surface), the dishwasher worked fine. So the air gap unit seemed plugged. The black hose from the garbage disposal to the air gap unit is free flowing (blew through it - yuch!). But the drain connection through the air gap unit was NOT as free flowing.

Replaced it with a new air gap unit ($5.00 at Home depot).
All works fine now. I feel I got lucky.

Well this worked for me. Sorry for all of you who spent big bucks with no solution on those service guys that tried but did not help. I hope this helps some of you.

John

I have a miele g892sc and the drain/intake light flashed and the machine won't turn on


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.

Miele touchtronic 1113 washer


There is a float switch in a pan under the machine. This pan is probably full and the float switch is causing the Intake & Drain fault signal. You can lean the machine over to towards the front to partially drain the pan. Put a towel down to catch the water. When you put the machine level again the fault lights should be out. The real question is where did the water come from. You can easily remove the top (4 screws, 1 on each side behind the little plastic caps and 1 on each side of the back. Torx heads) and look down inside while you start the cycle. Look for leaks.
Good Luck,
Dan

sounds like you're dealing with a pressure problem...from the pump or the circulation channels.

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.
