    At the end of the cycle there is still water in the bottom of the washer. I have removed the plastic in the bottom and all the water but see no debris. I can hear the water trying to drain at the beginning of a new cycle.

My Miele dishwasher has water in the bottom of it and won't run


Check the impeller on the pump to make SURE it's turning freely. There could be a piece of debris wedged in there - like glass or a screw from a pot handle. If this is redundant, I apologize.

What DOES it do? Just fill with water? Or doesn't it even do that? Do you have any lights on or flashing? Do you hear any noises when you try to run it?

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light


Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

Miele G858SCVi Plus dishwasher intake drain button is flashing and washer will not fill with water. We had a pluged drain and tried to use a plunger on it and water backed up into dishwasher. ...now it...


hi,

the unit will not fill with water until it will drain as it needs to complete the drain function before it can move onto the next step.

make sure the non return valve under the filter is properly fitted in the sump of the unit. then check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects to the sink u bend. This is the most common causes of a blocked drain.

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

Miele G841 Built in. Intake/Drain light on/flashing and the dishwasher just shuts down.


I had a similar problem with a different Miele. I found that under the door, there is a removable trim panel (may not be one on yours). Under the trim panel was an acoustically sealed metal plate held by a couple of screws. i switched off and disconnected the electrity, then removed the plate. The bottom tray was filled with a big puddle. I cleaned that up and put the machine back together and it ran fine. Accordingly, I'm getting some replacement shaft seals for the thing as it looks like its worth fixing. Good luck with yours. rupertvdP

The washer keeps beeping and trying to drain as soon as it is turned on


I have a Haier HDP18PA with the same problem... I tried tilting mine backwards while running...this made a mess BUT the beeping stopped BUT the lights were still flashing. Turned it off and started it again and the lights still were flashing BUT no beeping. Decided to try tilting it forward while running ... made another mess BUT the lights stopped flashing. Turned it off again and restarted it and it is now running fine. Good luck!

Miele G841 Built in. Intake/Drain light on/flashing and the dishwasher just shuts down.


In the user manual there's a section on how to clean the non-return valve. It's the plastic piece under the wire below the triple filter. Why did you pull out the machine? Did you kink the drain hose? If you don't find a clogged valve, spin the impeller wheel several times. It's under the valve inside the bottom hole where the valve came out.
Now here's the important step- Reset the fault! Power off/on the unit. If the light blinks when you turn it on, Press and hold the start button 4 seconds with the door open. Find the combination of off/on buttons to press to reset the machine in the user manual.
(Note: If the machine runs continuously as soon as you pressed on the power button, then you have water under the unit in the safety pan. Call Miele for help.) Now select the normal wash cycle close the door and start it. The drain motor always runs first. This verifies to the brain how much water is inside the machine when it starts filling. The drain pump runs for half a minute. If you hear it running with no drain check the drain hose especially if it's connected to a disposal. Clean the disposal.. If it's not running at all the light will go on again before filling, call Miele. If the machine fill up with fresh water, the drain works. Watch and listen when the light comes on. Is it filling or did it start circulating? Open the door, are the baskets are dripping wet? Then it filled and circulated. If the light comes on several miutes later then call Miele.
