Mieli water-intake light comming on?

We have a miele dishwasher and the water-intake light is comming on. We have no manuel and don't know what this means. Dishwasher is new to us. We checked the filter and cleaned it. We start the machine and it sounds like it is running but then 3-5 minutes later it stops and the water-intake light comes on. Very little water in bottom of machine under the filter area. Please help.

Second question is says it needs salt. Is that just regular salt?

Thank you in advance for any help.

THIS IS THE INTAKE DRAIN LIGHT, THIS USUALLY MEANS YOU HAVE A DRAIN ISSUE, COULD BE A BLOCKAGE AT THE PUMP OR YOUR INSTALLATION IS INCORRECT, YOU CAN CALL MIELE CUSTOMER SERVICE AND ORDER A USE AND CARE MANUAL AS WELL AS AN INSTALLATION GUIDE, THEY ARE ALSO VERY GOOD AT TROUBLSHOOTING OVER THE PHONE @ 1-800-843-7231

I think it's regular salt, yes, but I've never bothered to fill mine.

Have you had a dishwasher previously? If not, check the tap where your washer gets its water to make sure it has proper water preasure. If the washer doesn't get enough water it will stop.

In my kitchen there is a separate little knob on the tap to control the water to the dishwasher. this has to be open. Mine has hot and cold selection, but only cold is connected so if I turn it on hot the washer gets no water

I have a Miele Platinum Turbothermic dishwasher. The intake drain light is flashing and the bottom of the washer is full of water. How do I fix it?


I have this same dishwasher I already dumped 400 into it to fix the intake drain and no more than a few uses after it breaks again I have never had more problems with a top of the line product or so what Miele thinks it is. I absolutely hate this dishwasher I refuse to put anymore money into it it is the worst product and Miele is no help they don't care whatsoever. I will never ever purchase Miele products they are more work and headache than cheaper models which will stand the test of time. What a complete piece of you know what.

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.
