SOURCE: Wash motor does not run: Inlet/Drain error

Wordhog: Does sound like a siezed wash pump to me. Wash motor needs to run to get the correct level of water.

To drain a Miele dishwasher, start the machine on a cycle. All the Miele range of dishwashers drain before filling. Then hold in the start button until the end/finish light is lit. Keep doing this until all the water has gone. You could just get a jug and bail it out. Once the jug does not do the job anymore, switch to a cup, I use a very large syringe for the remaining half a litre.

SOURCE: Miele WT 945 Washer Dryer - Spin not working + Water Inlet/Drain Light Flashes

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Your filter of the water inlet valve is accessible outside the machine; it is at the water entry point. Close your faucet & check this out; this gets clogged often.

Hope i am helpful...... Click on 'thanks for trying' if not helped, your prob will be back for someone else to solve.

SOURCE: Inlet/Drain light keeps flashing

Kenyanjoe, I have had the same problem with a G638 . the inlet/drain light flashed 30 sec after start up, (the machine must empty on start up, this did not happen), This caused it to lock out on alarm I removed the drain hose from the S trap,removed the non return valve from the filter, check the drain pump impellar is free, then blow down the drain hose back into the dishwasher to make sure it was not blocked then found the drain pipe on the S trap under the sink was restricted causing the machine not to empty in time for the cycle to continue causing it to lockout on inlet/drain alarm. Have a go , good luck. GUNNO

SOURCE: f2 code flashing

Have you tried to reset the dishwasher to clear out the error code? Toreset, you hold down the "Start/Stop" button (or "Wash Program" buttonon units that don't have the "Start/Stop" button) for 3 to 5 seconds.This should clear the code. Try running a cycle to see if the problemreturns. If it does, you can, if you are completely comfortable withyour mechanical abilities, remove the toe kick plate, the access panel,the "T"-shaped kick bracket and the galvanized guard plate to see ifthere is water in the basepan. I would only remove these panels if I was POSITIVELY comfortablewith doing it. * To remove the screws, you'll need a 20 TORXscrewdriver. If water is present in the base pan, vacuum with a wet/dryvacuum or soak up with a towel or sponge. Run a cycle and inspect forleaks. If the problem continues, contact a local service center: Toll-free @ 1-800-898-1879. Hope this helps...

LG Fuzzy logic 6.5kg WF-T7519PV washing machine.Sensor panel error PE where E is flashing indication with sound.


This PE error or fault code indicates that the machine is overfilling with water. This washer is equipped with a water level pressure switch. As the machine fills, the pressure increases on the switch, at the set pressure, the switch cuts power to the water inlet valve and the water stops flowing into the washer. If the pressure switch fails to sense properly, or the water inlet valve fails to shut off the unit can overfill. This situation can also be caused if the machine does not drain properly. First, check to see if water ever enters the machine when it is turned off. If so, replace the water inlet valve. Next, check the drain line to be sure it's not clogged or kinked. Next, check to see if the drain pump is working properly and removing the water from the previous cycle. If all of those check out, you may need to replace the pressure switch. If no water is going into the machine, check the water inlet valve operation.

Water keeps filling up the drum and inlet light flashes


either the inlet water valve is bad and needs to be replaced or the controller for it is not cutting off the electricty to it, If you are going to replace something, replace the water inlet solenoid valve.

Machine wont go onto rinse cycle rinse indiactor flashes


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors due to feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET/MOTOR/DRAIN pump/ valve to open up and allow each function to be driven starting from the flow of water into the drum as also the drain valve to open to exit the water at the point of the program cycle. If this does not happen then the voltage at the valve/motor/pump must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows though the inlet then the flow pressure should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.

Check this link to replace the inlet valve:

http://www.espares.co.uk/advice/washing-machines/a/7/1408/how-to-replace-the-inlet-valve-on-a-washer-dr.html

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.

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.

Trying to start the unit but the washing light indicator only flashes.


this means the machine has started the cycle...that is the washing light is flashing. However if nothing happens then the drain pump is not working firstly. Machines usually drain first any bit of left over water then go yo fill up. As you havent ststed the make and model i assume the drain pump is faulty. or the water inlet is not working. More precise info is needed to advise you further

Dishwasher adp 4601 when switched on the pump activates.and after 2 mins start lamp bliks and pump goes off


The number of flashes indicates the fault. Reset machine by holding down the start button for 3 secs, then start a new cycle. If fault reoccurs, the number of flashes indicates fault eg 3 flashes, stop, 3 flashes stop, indicates F3 fault.
Faults listed below- advice on repair depends on which fault your machine is indicating, but may give you an idea of what to look for
1flash=NTC (temperature sensor) break- NTC outside normal range.
2flash=water leakage-float switch in base activated.
3flash=heating fault(check element.NTC,control board).
4flash=drain error-blockage in pump or drain system,or faulty water indicator switch.
6flash=water inlet fault-check inlet valve, check inlet hose not kinked
7flash=flow meter failure (flow meter measures water intake volume-large plastic weir located on left hand side of machine-reomve side panel to access)
These a most common faults, but further advice on repair requires counting flashes when fault occurs.

AWM 8121 NOT DRAINING OR SPINNING PROPERLY


that isn't a good model number,open the door,look around the opening where you put the clothes in and next time send the model number off of the machine,if you can't get it to drain and water is in the machine get a shop vac,suck out the water from the tub,then go to the pump,loosen the center of the pump until water starts to come out vac it up until no more water comes out,remove the center catch and see if there's junk in there,if so this is your problem,stick the nozzle of the vac inside and clean out the inside,put it back together and see if it will drain

Miele Model G 692 SCI PLUS does not start up. It drains water if you put water in the bottom. The Inlet/Drain light flashes. I have checked all the water filters and cleaned any very small particles...


The inlet/drain light also comes on when there is water in the base pan. There is a float switch that triggers this and over time if water has collected in the base pan the float switch can stick. Pull out the dishwasher and tilt it towards to back. If there is any water in the base pan it will come out. To be thorough, put the machine on it's back and remove the base pan (4 screws by the feet), the float switch is a circular plastic casing with a polystyrene float in it. It comes apart for servicing, the float can jam if there is any rubbish in the water.
