Miele intake light on since new sink,disposal installed

I had no previous problems until new sink,faucet, food disposal installed. Now intake/drain light keeps coming on.  Any suggestions would be great!jmontilla72,

You' re the best. I did not remove the disposal port like a bum. But after punching it out and reconnecting the drain hose to the new disposal, all is well. Suppose I should have read the disposal installation instructions...

Thanks again!!!

Ok please go to this website above, it shows you how the hose MUST go, it MUST be Raised in the middle, or back flow may occur. I suspect that this is what is happening, the pressure sensor, is being tripped, due to the lack of back pressure. I believe, that you simply need to have the hose correct, also,check for kinks, blockages etc.

Sink erator


First, unplug the power cord to the "Sink aerator" disposal from under the sink storage area. Next, remove the black rubber strainer from the upper sink area leading down into the disposal. (It simply pulls upward to remove) This will allow you to put your hand down into the disposal area to physically clean out the disposal deposits by hand. Pull out whatever is plugging the disposal and throw the debris in the trash, not back into the disposal. Once everything is removed from inside the disposal, flush it out completely with water from the faucet until it drains freely. Reassemble the black rubber strainer and plug in the disposal once clean. Be sure not to put potatoe peelings and other non-disposable items which can't be ground up easily in the garbage disposal. Keep in mind, just because it says garbage disposal, it doesn't mean all "garbage." Also, always use plenty of water when using the disposal and allow the water to run for a minute or so afterwards to finish washing down the debris in the sink "P" trap drain out through the outer sewer line.

Our new kenmore garbage disposal shoots the water up rather than sucking it down


Check the drain is not clogged.
Does sink opening have splash guard?
Check that plumbing is vented as required by code:

I need a replacement handle, including all the parts and hoses, on my Price Pfister Marielle kitchen faucet model # T26-4NEE


Most new kitchen faucets feature single-handle control levers and washerless designs that rarely require maintenance. Additional features include brushed metallic finishes, detachable spray nozzles, or even push-button controls.Connect the faucet to hot and cold water lines with easy-to-install flexible supply tubes made-from vinyl or braided steel. If your faucet has a separate sprayer, install the sprayer first. Pull the sprayer hose through the sink opening and attach to the faucet body before installing the faucet.

Where local codes allow, use plastic tubes for drain hookups. A wide selection of extensions and angle fittings lets you easily plumb any sink configuration. Manufacturers offer kits that contain all the fittings needed for attaching a food disposer or dishwasher to the sink drain system.

We've got an Meile Incognito dishwasher, model G 843 SCVi plus. It purges at the begining of the cycle and then seems to fill with water, but then the red Intake/Drain light starts to flash and the cycle...


I would start by checking the drain line where it is connected to the garbage disposal. Check and make sure there is no solid build up obstructing the discharge into the garbage disposal. You can go a step further by removing the dishwasher drain line for thorough check up
If it has been establish that there is no obstruction by other means. There may be a problem with the control board.
I would suggest cautious approach in making rush decision on replacing the board.

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.

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
