It sounds like there is either a kink in your drain hose or your garbage disposal is blocked up where the dishwasher drain is connected

Does anyone know why a Miele diswasher will start to wash fine and then stop with the inlet/drain light flashing after a few mins? I looked at the pressure stat at the bottom of motor and when i blow in it...


hi,
you may have something rapped around the impellers of the circulation pump causing low water pressure. the unit will start and stop to try to clear the blockage. if the circulation pump is really jammed the inlet/drain light will light. it could be a faulty pressure switch but they are not common to fail.

Hope this helps

Water staying at the bottom of the washer.When i close the washer an press start the inlet/drain light comes on and nothing else happens.Miele G 692 SC PLUS


Your drain outlet is blocked , pull all the filters out and then check nothing is stopping the impeller from turning. You have to bucket out all the water first of course. It can be a toothpick or just some gunk,

The 'inlet/outlet' red indicator light flashing, small pool of water collected under filter, but cannot get back of to clean it. Model is Miele G646sc


You might be able to reach if you take the sides off. Elect disconnect, open door, remove 2 cross head screws recessed at top of where door closes, push top cover backwards an inch then lift off. remove 2 screws at top of each side panel then the lower ones (4 a side) panels then lift off and you can see right across the bottom of the 'sump' including the float switch assembly. (which has no effect on switching on the inlet/oulet lamp on my d/washer.)

Miele G646 dishwasher keeps trying to pump out


Had a similar problem with an 846, but with the inlet outlet lamp flashing. the bottom tray had filled with watedr froma dodgy seal. I switched off and disconnected the electricity. Removed the bottom front cover below the door (2 screws behind the pretty kickboard which also had to come off). The bottom of the machien was a big puddle. I dried this out with paper twowel, put the machine back together and it ran fine. I am going to replace the pump seals now as the machine seems otherwise OK.

Good luck with yours. rupertvdpP

Inlet/drain light has come on on Miele G892 SCU plus dishwasher how do I sort it without an engineer


I haven't worked on your model. However in general you first need to go through the user manual checks to make certain you've not got a silly. Follow their safety instructions. Manuals are available on their websites e.g. http://www.miele.com/manuals/display_manuals.aspx?bhcp=1

Check the drain pump and non return valve are OK and not blocked.

Check the inlet pipe strainer is clear, and if necessary clean it and descale it.

Check you've got water coming out of the outlet on the wall (carefully, its wet - make certain it doesn't go on the electrics)

Test the fixed drain and hose if the machine is empty by putting some water in it and then turning it on - it should drain in my experience.

If all the above is OK, its possible that the machine has leaked into the bottom tray. You'd need to shut off and disconnect the electricity then open up the bottom compartment of the machine - often a plate on the front behind the kickboard trim. If it has got water in, I'd mop it out and then put it back together. i'd then try running the machine. If it worked in that state I'd bother to replace the leaking seals e.g. on a pump shaft.

Good luck with yours.

Half way through a program then stops, leaving water in the bottom of the machine


Check the flood switch first. It will stop the dishwasher but you may hear a moter running.

Inlet/ drain light keeps flashing


You have a leak and the bottom pan is full of water. You can remove the cover at the bottom front of the dishwasher and see if the bottom pan is filled with water.

Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher Drainage / inlet warning light


I had the same problem a few days ago. I followed the instructions to clean the filter and check to see that the impeller was free to rotate in both directions. The problem persisted. After reading this thread, and a similar one on another site, I tried what mikeboerma suggested in "solution #3", and bingo, problem solved. The magic combination is to push and hold the on/off button and the start/stop button.

Dishwasher not working


Hi Frazzledmum, Miele have a safety float switch in the bottom of the machine. (The float is a polystyrene disc). If the machine leaks for any reason, then the water sits in the bottom tray raises the float switch & all your dishwasher will do is activate the drain pump and flash those red lights at you. The reason is that somewhere under the machine there is a leak that needs to be investigated & repaired so in this instance I'm affraid that you will have to call a serviceman. Kind regards

Intake/Drain Error


There is water collected in the inner tray of your unit. Pull out the Miele and take off the drain hose and unplug the unit. Then tilt the dishwasher back 60* and let it drain out all the water. There will be a couple of cups on the floor, but nothing too big that a couple of towles can't handle. Then reconnect everything and start up the unit. It WILL work! It just happened to me and my Miele incognito is now working like a champ again!!
