Question about Miele 24 in. Incognito G843SCVi Built-In Dishwasher
We used it for 3 years, then it sat unused for about six months while we were renovating. When I re-installed it, the cycle would not start, and after a while the "intake/drain' indicator flashed. I cleaned out the filter and the non-return valve, and spun the drain pump impellor. (I'm quite sure the intake pressure is fine) Then, the machine would fill, but not wash, and eventually. I could get it to drain as well, but not go into a wash mode, and eventually, the same optic indicator would start flashing. Is there another pump, a main pump, that I can access and clean?
Most units have a recirculating pump, and an output (drain) pump.
If I were you, I would disconnect it, drag it outside and turn upside-down (remove everything internal first)
Take off the drain pump and check over, then check the main pump motor for free rotation first.
Also clean both those, and check condition of hoses/ carbon brushes on main motor while you're there.
Doing this full service now should give you a long run without problems.
My guess is the main motor seal may have leaked a very little, allowing the spindle to sieze. Freeing it and applying light oil with regular use should be ok.
Replace carbon brushes if worn to save hassle later - they're cheap.
