Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. The first thing that should be checked is if its draining properly as it could be that the drain hose is clogged and needs to be cleaned. The drain pump also should not be clogged. Also the stopcock should be opened fully and the water inlet valve should be checked for any clogs. Also the metal filter, impeller cover and the air gap unit should be checked. After checking this you can reset the error as follows: turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

Inlet/ drain light is flashing,I have cleaned out the basket, but it is still flashing and wont start. what do I need to do know?


Difficult to get help if you don't say what dishwasher it is.
Is it a Meile? This is a common condition foe Meile dishwashers and it usually means there is something blocking the outlet beyong the basket. I have a Meile and the first part of this fault fixing guide is normal.

The pump impeller may be unable to turn due to some muck blocking it. The first thing to do is remove the cover of the impeller. It is under the filter in the bottom the dishwasher. They have changed the design over the years, but there will be a plastic clip that you push or squeeze to allow you to slip the cover off. In the cover there is a ball bearing, you should be able to shake the cover and hear the ballbearing move. You can see it from the underside. If it doesn.t move freely this could be the problem, but this is unusual.
Next with the part you have removed out of the dishwasher, close the dishwasher on and turn it on for 5-10 seconds, this is to try and clear the obstruction. Next open the dishwasher again and put your finger down the opening the cover you removed from the impeller and see if the impeller moves freely. If it does, put everything back together and see how it goes. If it still will not start it is likely to be a blockage in the outlet pipe.

First remove the impeller cover again, this to rellease any pressure in the outlet hose so water doesn't gush out quite as much when you do the next bit. Get a large bucket or two ready and with the machine off loosen the clamp on the outlet hose where it joins the s-bend at your sink and remove the pipe from the sink. Here is where you need the bucket or maybe two. Of course if it is blocked you don't need the bucket yet. Check the pipe and the nipple on the s-bend to see if there is a blockage and remove it, then replace and tighten the clamp. The outlet may be blocked by solidified fat or something else, this happens if fat it emptied down the sink and it doesn't take much. When the fat hits the cold water in the s-bend it solidifies straight away and if it gets in the dishwasher pipe it blocks it. A very common issue with all dishwashers and people who pour fat down the sink.

Hope this is all it is, but possibly the pump or something else is cactus.

Samsung new dishwasher will not run through a cycle or drain properly. Water left in bottom. Keeps stopping and going to quick flashing.


The drain hose from the dishwasher may be partially or fully clogged with food stuffs like peas, corn, green beans, or other foods. disconnect the drain hose and clear debris from drain hose and run threw drain cycle.

Meile dishwasher G641 inlet /outlet hose has split can I ,buy a replacement hose


Hi jmjohnnamarti,

Yes you can, the part numbers below:

Drain hose (1.5M) = 2244182
Drain Hose (2.25M) = 2244212
Inlet Hose (Normal) = 5936070
Inlet Hose (Waterproof System - 2M) = 7638500

Get it from your local appliance spares outlet, might need to be ordered (Quite expensive)

Hope this helps :-)

Inlet/drain light comes on and machine stops


possible that drain pump is jammed with something or if this not the case it could be the circulating motor head is cloged up. being a built in appliance would def recommend calling out an engineer. unless drain pump can be got at from inside the dishwasher.

sorry cant be of much more help, meile appliances rarely give problems so dont see alot of them

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.
Here is a link to the manual

Dishwasher makes a loud noise when the drain cycle starts


When you say you have checked for blockages, have you taken things apart down to the impeller? If not, recommend you look at this diagram to help get to that point looking for stuff that is broke or blocked.

If that does not fix it, post back here and we will look at the motor parts 'n stuff.

Meile G638 I Plus dishwasher


Problem solved, the dishwasher starts its wash cycle with a drain sequence, the pan did not drain in time for the wash cycle to continue , thererfor locking it out on inlet/drain alarm. I removed the drain hose from the S trap, then the non-return valve from the filter basket, made sure the drain pump impelar was free, blew down the drain hose back into dishwasher to clear any waste in the pipe,then found a block in the S trap orifis, after clearing that, reasembled and test run on cold pre wash cycle this runs for aprox 10 min.customer was very happy.
