Question about Dishwashers

Miele Model G 692 SCI PLUS does not start up. It drains water if you put water in the bottom. The Inlet/Drain light flashes. I have checked all the water filters and cleaned any very small particles from them.

The inlet/drain light also comes on when there is water in the base pan. There is a float switch that triggers this and over time if water has collected in the base pan the float switch can stick. Pull out the dishwasher and tilt it towards to back. If there is any water in the base pan it will come out. To be thorough, put the machine on it's back and remove the base pan (4 screws by the feet), the float switch is a circular plastic casing with a polystyrene float in it. It comes apart for servicing, the float can jam if there is any rubbish in the water.

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.

Miele dishwasher model G858 water will not circulate and the intake / drain code flashing? Does anyone know what needs to be replaced?


when you start a cycle, your machine should drain for 30 sec, fill with water, and then the circulation pump should come on. your water level should be up to the handle on the filter in the bottom. if you drain, and fill to the handle and then the intake drain error comes on, your circulation pump is stuck. if it does not fill to the handle, you may have a problem with the inlet valve.

Does anyone know why a Miele diswasher will start to wash fine and then stop with the inlet/drain light flashing after a few mins? I looked at the pressure stat at the bottom of motor and when i blow in it...


hi,
you may have something rapped around the impellers of the circulation pump causing low water pressure. the unit will start and stop to try to clear the blockage. if the circulation pump is really jammed the inlet/drain light will light. it could be a faulty pressure switch but they are not common to fail.

Hope this helps

Water staying at the bottom of the washer.When i close the washer an press start the inlet/drain light comes on and nothing else happens.Miele G 692 SC PLUS


Your drain outlet is blocked , pull all the filters out and then check nothing is stopping the impeller from turning. You have to bucket out all the water first of course. It can be a toothpick or just some gunk,

Have Miele G653 SCVi plus. We have inlet/drain flashing red light


Hi,

Sounds like something is caught in th drain pump as the unit has to drain first before anything else happens. Remove the filter and the non return valve which is under the clip in the sump of the unit. In the manual it shows you this. Make sure the drain pump is free of any foreign particles like broken glass. Then start the unit again so it goes to drain without the non return valve in place. This will then throw out any foreign particles as well.

or it could be the drain pump is activated all the time which is the noise you hear as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. You will see the float at the front. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

Intake/drain light is flashing


When this happens with my dishwasher it usually means that the drain is clogged with food/debris.  To fix 1) remove bottom dish rack from machine 2) using a small cup, scoop out as much water as possible 3) remove inlet drain cover and unsnap the plastic insert and remove 4) rinse the plastic part and reinstall 5) start machine 6) if light still flashes, repeat steps 3 4 and 5 and restart

Inlet/drain light has come on on Miele G892 SCU plus dishwasher how do I sort it without an engineer


I haven't worked on your model. However in general you first need to go through the user manual checks to make certain you've not got a silly. Follow their safety instructions. Manuals are available on their websites e.g. http://www.miele.com/manuals/display_manuals.aspx?bhcp=1

Check the drain pump and non return valve are OK and not blocked.

Check the inlet pipe strainer is clear, and if necessary clean it and descale it.

Check you've got water coming out of the outlet on the wall (carefully, its wet - make certain it doesn't go on the electrics)

Test the fixed drain and hose if the machine is empty by putting some water in it and then turning it on - it should drain in my experience.

If all the above is OK, its possible that the machine has leaked into the bottom tray. You'd need to shut off and disconnect the electricity then open up the bottom compartment of the machine - often a plate on the front behind the kickboard trim. If it has got water in, I'd mop it out and then put it back together. i'd then try running the machine. If it worked in that state I'd bother to replace the leaking seals e.g. on a pump shaft.

Good luck with yours.

Wash motor does not run: Inlet/Drain error


Wordhog: Does sound like a siezed wash pump to me. Wash motor needs to run to get the correct level of water.

To drain a Miele dishwasher, start the machine on a cycle. All the Miele range of dishwashers drain before filling. Then hold in the start button until the end/finish light is lit. Keep doing this until all the water has gone. You could just get a jug and bail it out. Once the jug does not do the job anymore, switch to a cup, I use a very large syringe for the remaining half a litre.

Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher Drainage / inlet warning light


I had the same problem a few days ago. I followed the instructions to clean the filter and check to see that the impeller was free to rotate in both directions. The problem persisted. After reading this thread, and a similar one on another site, I tried what mikeboerma suggested in "solution #3", and bingo, problem solved. The magic combination is to push and hold the on/off button and the start/stop button.
