Question about Miele 23 in. Novotronic G841 Built-In Dishwasher

Miele Novotronic G 841 Plus keeps stopping after a few minutes

Hello. We've been away for a few months and find our Novotronic G 841 Plus keeps stopping after a few minutes with the intake/red light flashing. I followed the advice from the store to pour very hot water into the machine and leave it for 15 minutes before starting it. This has always worked in the past but this time NO GO. The service fellow told me to use a 1/4inch box wrench to move the motor (?) 1/4 turn, but quite frankly, I couldn't feel that the wrench actually fit onto anything. Any suggestions?

There's a rectangular slot under the triple filter at the 12 O'clock position. The circulation pump impeller wheel faces you inside that hole. I would recommend using a special wrench for doing just that. The box wrench could get stuck and break off a blade on the impeller. I think Miele will mail you the special tool for free if you call them with the Model and Serial number. They say the pump seal inside there gets tight if it's not used on a regular basis and the hot water or the tool frees it up. I think they could use ceramic washers instead of rubber. They don't change size so there would be much less tourque required to start the pump.

Intake drain light on

Hello & Welcome to FixYa
The problem is with clogged drain filter pump assembly, you can take it apart from the bottom to clean the drain filter pump assembly. After you have cleaned it completely then turn the selector switch to STOP/END or press the START/STOP for 20 seconds. After you have done all this unplug the appliance for 5-10 minutes and plug it back to solve this problem. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

I have a Miele G841 SC Plus Novotronic Dishwasher. The Intake/Drain light is blinking and it won't work. What do I do?

I had a problem where my G842Plus dishwasher would run through the prewash and then the intake/drain light would start blinking and it wouldn't work. There would be water in the bottom of the dishwasher. After cleaning out various items to no avail, we called Miele technical support and they told us to reset the codes and then keep trying it over and over until it worked.
Here is how we reset the codes:
  • Turn dial to stop/off
  • Turn dial to Normal Plus
  • Press Start
  • Press power
  • Then press the start button for one second and let go

This same problem is posted elsewhere on this site. Probably you need to clean out a valve on the bottom of the machine (inside the dishwasher). Check your manual, or the similar post on this site.
