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: miele dishwasher red inlet light flashes

This is most probably a software glitch. I had the same issue a week ago and my dishwasher is only about 2 yrs old and only gets used on average once a fortnight.

At first I did everything as the manual shows in the troubleshooting section. The whole process takes only about 5 to 15 minutes depending on how good of a handyman you are.

When I cleaned all the parts involved (all pretty clean to start with anyway) and connect them all back, sadly the red light wouldn't go.
It looked like I was stuck with the most hated option I had left: call the dreaded technician and be prepared to depart with some hard-earned cash.

Before doing that and out of desperation, I decided to surf the net for clues, blogs, forums, etc... and on one of them I found my answer.
One blogger suggested that "if anything else fails, try the 'reset' step" which means pressing at the same time the On/Off button and the Start/Stop button. That operation put a big smile on my face (and my wife's face too) as the red light magically disappeared.

My suggestion is "first try the reset trick and if that fails try and clean the parts as the manual shows". It'll save you headaches because the reset would do the trick in 90% of cases.

I work in IT and I can understand the fact that a software malfunction would trigger the red light and not reset it.

Good luck.

I have a Miele g7856 and I just replaced the drain hose now I get a F2E code ?


The F 2E code indicates insufficient water coming into the dishwasher. Thus you should check that the shut-off valves for the incoming water lines are open. Make sure that the incoming water pressure hasn't decreased and that the water lines aren't kinked or blocked. You should also check the water inlet filters (at the screw connection of the hose) and the flow restrictor insert in the waterproof system.

Since the dishwasher was working before the drain hose was replaced, closed shut-off valves and kinked hoses are particularly likely. You may also want to replace the inlet hoses themselves. (Some anti-burst hoses will restrict the water flow if they detect a leak.)

I hope this helps.

Dishwasher is not working. The red 'Inlet/Outlet' light is flashing. Any advice please Thank you


There are a few things you can check. First set the washer cycle to Stop and turn off the unit. Next make sure that the stopcock on the inlet valve is fully open. Then close the stopcock/valve and disconnect the inlet hose. Remove the seal and then the filter (use pliers). Clean this inlet filter with running water. Replace the filter and seal and reconnect the hose to your inlet valve. Reopen the valve (check for leaks from threading problems). Make sure the valve is fully open when you try to restart the dishwasher. Check your incoming water pressure at this valve as well - low water pressure will also trigger the inlet error. Make sure the hose is not kinked.

If the washer did any parts of the wash cycle, then try cleaning the outlet side of the system.
Next clean the combination filter, drain pump and non-return valve. For the filter (near the lower spray arm), turn the handle counter-clockwise. Lift the filter out and remove all debris. Rinse under running water and use a nylon bristle brush to get stubborn stuff out. Pull back the yellow clip and open the filter flap. Clean the underside of the filter with running water again.

Remove the water from the cabinet with any container that works. Raise the locking clamp for the non-return valve. Lift up the valve and clean it under running water. Carefully check the drain pump (now visible with the non-return valve out) and remove any debris. Sharp objects may be present. Move the impellers and completely check the pump for foreign objects and remove them. Replace the non-return valve and secure it with the locking clamp. Replace the combination filter so that it lays flat and secure it with the handle. Make sure that the drain hose is not kinked.

If neither of these solve the problem, you need to call for service. The Waterproof safety system has been triggered and water got into the electrical system of the unit.

Many Miele appliance manuals are here: http://www.miele.co.uk/customer/OperatingInstructions.aspx . The manual for the Miele G641 is here: http://www.miele.co.uk/Resources/OperatingInstructions/G%20641%20and%20G%20841%20Plus.pdf . See this manual for pictures of the filters and drain pump area.

I hope this helps.

Drain pump goes ON when ON-OFF button is pressed, even if the know selector is in OFF position and the machine is dry. There is no fault codes and the dishwasher complete the washing cycle OK, but when...


Seems that the drain pump circuit in the main program controller unit power and keeps on as there is no logic feedback to cut off the power. It can be that the drain is clogged and so the water level detect keeps sensing due to a fault. check the sensors , check the drain filters , check the machine LEVEL so that the water drains clearly to the drain pump.

Hi

First check if the drain hose is not clogged and try to clean it as it can be that the hose is clogged and the water is not draining properly. After that check if the drain pump filter is fine and not clogged, try to clean that as well. After this check the metal filter, impeller cover and the air gap unit. After checking this you can reset the error as follows: turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hi dear.If the checked lights comes on after the main wash & then flashes(when on main wash cycle,if the main pump works for a few minutes & then stops for a while & so on...)that indicates main wash pump faulty.You need to replace the motor it self.I hope that helps.Thanks.

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

How do I reset miele dishwasher - drain pipe now unblocked but will not commence cycle


Hi there,

Well first of all you can check that the stopcock is opened fully or whether the water inlet hose is kinked. Check that the water inlet filter is not clogged and clean it, if necessary, as described in the operating instructions. Check that the drain pump is not clogged.

Reset the error message as follows: To cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. 

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Another inlet / drain light cycle interruption problem!


When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

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.
