The red light tell you there is a fault. You have to read the fault code and it will give you a general idea of the problem - to do this you have to enter the service mode of operation - close the door and turn the dishwasher on.
The Start/Stop light must be blinking. If the Start/Stop light is not blinking, press and hold
the Start/Stop button for at least 3 seconds to exit the cycle. The Start/Stop light should now be blinking.

Press and hold the Start/Stop button while turning the dishwasher on. Release the
Start/Stop button and immediately press it 2 more times. Flashing Intake/Drain and
Salt lamps and a lit Rinse lamp indicates successful accessing of services mode

SOURCE: 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

Our water is soft and does not require salt. how do we stop the red light


I think it might depend on the model # and it should be in your manual.

Example for a G858 SCVI plus instructions (without pictures) are;

Bypassing the salt indicator

If your water is soft (below 8 gr/gal) the
salt reservoir should not be filled with
salt. The indicator will remain lit and
should be disregarded or bypassed.

Remove the salt reservoir cap.

Looking into the salt reservoir, you will
see the top of the float chamber on the
right hand side, a.

Using a screwdriver, carefully pivot
the float chamber towards the center
of the reservoir.

Using needle nose pliers, pull the
cap, b, off of the float chamber, and
remove the float, c.

Replace the float chamber cap, push
the chamber back into its upright position,
and replace the salt reservoir cap.
The "Salt" indicator should no longer be
lit.

Hi - its possiblily the following issues if its flashing rapidly then the electronic module maybe faulty. The other possibilties are the float switch inside the salt conatner is jammed or the reed switch for the float switch in the salt container does work.

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.
