Intake Drain Light

The intake drain light keeps going on shutting down the washer. I cleared the drain and the line yet the light still comes on.

    Dishwasher does not drain completely, and Intake/Drain light flashes. I have cleaned the triple filter,drain pump, and return valve, but problem continues.

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.

You have an error. The number of flashes tells you what the error is. You need to get a qualified technician to read the code and repair the unit.

Miele W1213 intake, drain and 3 - - - faults


Have had this since 2007 or 2008. Pain in the backside.
Fixed it by:
Cleaning drain.
Unplugging from power.
Tilting forward to drain water for 1-2 mins.
Made sure that the clear plastic light ***** in the rubber opening which located at the top was tight as it tends to get loose if you have an off-balance load.
Plugged power back in.
Boom, she started up.

This is a great washer/dryer, but it's expensive to fix if you need a repairman and it's a bit of voodoo if you need to do the above.

Drain intake indicator flashing. We have cleaned all but the intake filter. How do you clean or check to see if cleaning is necessary of the intake filter?


After cleaning the drain, looking at the intake (no filter on ours) and the light wouldn't go off, I just decided to take the ctrl-alt-delete approach and hit all the lower four buttons all at once, bingo, it cleared the light and machine started.

Miele Dishwasher G892SCU Plus Intake/Drain light keep flashing


Hello RD,
Every Miele dishwasher is designed to drain water in the first 30 seconds of any cycle. Does your intake/drain light come on at all? Miele technical services can troubleshoot the fault code if you do get an intake/drain light.
The most common issue I have seen is that the dishwasher drain line is clogged.
Solution - Try checking the airgap at the top of your sink, if nothing there then check the end of the drain line usually connected to the garbage disposal if you have one. I would reccomend disconnecting the end of the drain line and putting it into a bucket. Let the dishwasher run for 30 seconds and if it drains then its a problem with your garbage disposal. If not I would contact Miele technical support to troubleshoot the fault code

Good luck

Miele G841 Built in. Intake/Drain light on/flashing and the dishwasher just shuts down.


I had a similar problem with a different Miele. I found that under the door, there is a removable trim panel (may not be one on yours). Under the trim panel was an acoustically sealed metal plate held by a couple of screws. i switched off and disconnected the electrity, then removed the plate. The bottom tray was filled with a big puddle. I cleaned that up and put the machine back together and it ran fine. Accordingly, I'm getting some replacement shaft seals for the thing as it looks like its worth fixing. Good luck with yours. rupertvdP

There is a float switch in a pan under the machine. This pan is probably full and the float switch is causing the Intake & Drain fault signal. You can lean the machine over to towards the front to partially drain the pan. Put a towel down to catch the water. When you put the machine level again the fault lights should be out. The real question is where did the water come from. You can easily remove the top (4 screws, 1 on each side behind the little plastic caps and 1 on each side of the back. Torx heads) and look down inside while you start the cycle. Look for leaks.
Good Luck,
Dan
