ALL LIGHTS ON PANEL ARE FLASHING??


All the lights on my incognito started to flash. This was after the drain/intake light started to flash also. I called Miele and they helped me to reset the lights flashing. They said that when all lights are flashing that this indicates an overheat condition. They asked if my filters were clean and I thought they were. However, my wife had started to use liquid dish washing detergent and the liquid detergent had plugged up the filter screen at the bottom of the dishwasher. I cleaned it good with a scrub brushing and boiling water. This fixed the problem. Bottom line, don't use liquid dish washing detergent in a Miele, only powder.

When I turn it on, it starts to hum but after 30 seconds the red light flashes and the intake/drain light is on. The Miele tech support says to take of the kick plate and empty check for a clog. Any...


Hello,
A fairly common occurence with Miele dishwashers is the seal on the pump/motor assambly swells up freezeing the motor.Miele makes tool to free it up very easily,if it doesnt reoccur the seal just swelled and it will be ok once freed up.If it does reoccur the seal needs to be replaced. Any Miele authorized service company will have this tool and could free the motor up within 5 minutes and only a couple uses will tell if it will swell again and need to be replaced.


Perhaps Miele could send you one of those tools so you could try and see it the pump seal has swelled up and stuck.

Red intake light comes on and dishwasher will not drain, model g 843 scvi


The manual is available here: http://www.miele.ca/miele/canada/OperatingInstructions/manuals.asp?ParFolder=Dishwashers&SubFolder=Previous%20models . Scroll down through the list to the G643 G843 Incognito. The maintenance items listed below are detailed on page 44 and beyond of the manual.

The Intake light is also the Drain error light. If the light is flashing, then turn off the dishwasher and clean the triple filter, the drain pump and the non return valve and make sure that there are no kinks in the drain hose.

Make sure the water is ccoming in at a pressure above 4.5 psi. Also make sure that the water valve is open and clean the water intake filter.

The final possibility is that the Waterproof system has tripped and you need a Miele technician to service the unit.

I hope this helps.

My intake/drain light is on. I have run my garberator. What else should I do to try and fix the problem?


A flashing "Intake/Drain," means something is wrong. It doesn't necessarly mean, "no water coming in," or "poor drainage." But of course, we should check those things first. What are the symptons? What part of the program does the "Intake/Drain" flash?

My miele dishwasher intake/drain light is on. Will not work. please advise. ty


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.
Hope this helps.

Intake Drain Light


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.

Intake/Drain light


Same thing happens to me. I was checking the Miele website and noticed that the Incognito has been discontinued. Perhaps this is a design flaw. I am about ready to replace the machine, but given the price, I hope someone knows how to fix it.
