Hi,

You need to drain the water out of the base of the machine and try it again.
Tilting the machine forward. Some more water ran out and the lights went off. Or let some water get under the washer into the sump. Tipping it forward to let the water run out got rid of the warning

Thanks for contacting fixya.com

If your sure the water way is clear, unplug the unit, plug it back in,
and see if the error is gone, if not, place the water lines into the tub and turn on the water to make sure water is coming into unit, if so the problem lies somewhere else.

Re-post if this didn't help, and say you did this but still have the error.
Good luck, hope it helps.

I bought an older 842 washing machine. It has been sitting for awhile so I cleaned out the filter. At first I did not get the plug back in and water ran out and the inlet fault light came on.


Sounds like either the small filter at the inlet solenoid valve or the solenoid valve itself. Either way you are going to have to get inside the machine to get to the inlet valve.If no water is coming through the soap draw then it can really only be at the valve OR the inlet to the soapdraw is blocked (again - need to take off the top to look) Make sure power is disconnected before you do. The flashing red light after 30 seconds or so is just letting you know that the drum has not reached certain water level in the appropriate amount of time.
Good luck

Miele G641 SC Plus Drain /inlet light 4 short 1 long flash. How do I find a fault code chart?


Inlet / Drain is a general fault meaning there was no water movement when it was necessary to start the pump. Either it didn\'t drain out or it didn\'t fill the last time.

Call 800-999-1360 for free Miele tech support. They will advise you free of charge. You will perform step by step control board operations over the phone to clear the fault code as well as advise you how to cleanout the drain pump.

F02 fault cleaned out the filter but still wont work


Possible that the inlet flow is low, Clean the inlet filter, check the inlet flow. Check the drain filter and if this was clogged, then the chances are that the valve must be removed and cleaned.

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.

My whirlpool front loading washing machine keeps stopping before the rinse cycle. I've cleaned the filter and the drain hose as well as all the inlet hoses. It stops and all the lights flash and it wont...


While it stops to rinse , does it drain off? if not there is block on the drain valve and so there is an error on the board because the water level sensor has to switch OFF and then ON to confirm that water has come in for rinsing.
So if the cycle is absent the possible fault can be the program controller. So you need to check the actions when the fault occurs, check for drain,.then after drain the inlet valve must open to allow water and then the water flow must cut off to start the motor.
If there is no action and output then the controller can be defective.

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.

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light


Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

Inlet/outlet light keeps flashing on G641 dishwasher - have checked filter and cleared debris. Just completed a wash but dishes not washed or rinsed adequately. Anything else I can check before requesting...


hi,

this is a general fault light which could mean anything without a Miele Technician coming out and connecting a
laptop to the unit. However most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely. See what part of the cycle the unit lights up the fault. If it happens at the very start it is the drain. If it drains ok then fails it is the inlet. If it fails after that it could be any number of things.
Hope this helps.

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.
