If it is draining and not drainig all the water out I think you can increase your drain time.Also check to see if drain hose has fallen make sure it is tied to under counter top.

All the lights on my incognito started to flash. This was after the drain/intake light started to flash also. I called Miele and they helped me to reset the lights flashing. They said that when all lights are flashing that this indicates an overheat condition. They asked if my filters were clean and I thought they were. However, my wife had started to use liquid dish washing detergent and the liquid detergent had plugged up the filter screen at the bottom of the dishwasher. I cleaned it good with a scrub brushing and boiling water. This fixed the problem. Bottom line, don't use liquid dish washing detergent in a Miele, only powder.

It sounds like there are some faulty wiring connections to the motor.

You will have to check your wiring from the timer to the motor.

Does it do the same thing if you select a different cycle on the push buttons?

The wiring diagram should be in the bottom access panel of the dishwasher or in the control panel.

Red intake light comes on and dishwasher will not drain, model g 843 scvi

The manual is available here: . 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.

Miele dw flashes 5 times, water is draining. Suspect filter/valve housing at end of water inlet line. Their is a wire running to this valv so I imagine whatever solenoid that tells the valve to open and...

which light is flashing? if the intake drain light is blinking and you dont hear the drain pump, it means water is not coming in. if the drain pump is running all the time, it means water has leaked into the bottom pan. behind the plastic toe kick, there is a panel that can be removed with two phillips head screws. It you can see water in there, you can dry it out, and try to run another cycle. if it runs fine, cut back on your detergent usage. if it leaks again within a cycle or two, you will need to locate the leak and repair.

My intake/drain light is on. I have run my garberator. What else should I do to try and fix the problem?

A flashing "Intake/Drain," means something is wrong. It doesn't necessarly mean, "no water coming in," or "poor drainage." But of course, we should check those things first. What are the symptons? What part of the program does the "Intake/Drain" flash?

Intake Drain light on and water in the bottom of the dishwasher

sounds like the flood mode is in operation, you may have a leak into the base stopping the wash continuing. pump out the water, then tip the unit at about 45 degrees and see if any water pours out of the base- confirming a leak.

Intake Drain Light

My Miele Incognito dishwasher kept getting an error with intake/drain light. The light flashed 5 times. Phoned Miele Technical Support to investigate the problem. The problem is that a seal in the bottom of the dishwasher has failed and there was water in the motor pan. Currently, $175 service charge for the technician to come look at it.

I don't want to spend $175+ to have them replace a 75 cent rubber gasket that I could replace on my own.
