I had the same problem. Went through every troubleshooting tip I got. Cleaned the catch filter, checked the drain for blockage, checked the impellor to see if it was free. All was fine. Turned power off, turned back on, selected cycle and heard 1) the water drain. 2) the draw of fresh water into machine. ) all became silent and after several minute, the drain light started to flash. After getting frustrated with this isue I called Miele, they did a diagnostic over the phone by having me push a series of buttons on the panel a certain way. My machine was diagnosed by MIELE as having a bad relay switch. I was told 90 dollars plus 175 install and tech visit. I agreed. When the tech arrived he did his diagnostics, he told me MIELE reps on phone were wrong. He told me I needed a new water pump at 385.00 plus 175 install for a total of 560.00 I told him no way would I ever spend 560 + tax to repair a machine that I paid 1900 dollars for and was 4 years old. I told him I would buy a 600 dollar Samsung first before I gave him 600 for a repair. He felt his job was complete and I wasnt buying the pump story. I started questioning various things and brought up what would the appropriate soap and measure amount be for it. I told him we were currently using the Electrasol gel balls. THAT IS WHEN HE SAID, THE REASON FOR MY MALFUNCTION WAS JUST THAT. I WAS TOLD POWDER ONLY IN SMALL AMOUNTS, NOT GEL PACKETS !!!!! The gel was not dissolving completely and gumming up the impellor making it hard for it to spin. 3 weeks later machine has worked flawlessly. If you are using gel PLEASE STOP. Also I was told to squirt rinse aid in the opening under the screen, there is a **** towards the back. Remove handle and screen from inside tub. see a 2 inch wide opening, squirt the rinse aid , a small amount in there and leave overnight. This rees up the gummy residue in there. Manually run your water until its hot. And run a cycle GOOD LUCK !!!

SOURCE: Dishwasher wont turn on or drain water

the problem is that you are having an overfill issue. You can fix this by extracting the water from the over fill pan. you will have to take the toe kick off and then take that panel off which should have 3 screws on each side and requires a 20 tork screwdriver to get it off. after that is taking off there is a wiring harness that you will see put your hand right under the wiring harness and feel in the over fill pan if there is water you will have to extract it with a sponge or a turkey baster. when you get the unit put back together then reset your unit by holding the start/stop button for 7 secs and that should fix your issue

Hi

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. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

It wont work it flashes fl


the Fl code indicates an overfill condition. If the washer is empty, then you likely have a problem with the water level pressure switch. If the washer is full of water and will not drain, you likely have a problem with the drain pump or the washer drain line.

If the washer is full of water, make sure that the washer drain is clear and working properly. Check the drain hose for kinks or clogs. If you find no problems with these issues, I recommend that you manually drain the washer using a wet/dry shop vacuum. Check the drain pump and connecting hoses for problems. You may need to replace the drain pump of water will drain out of the washer properly but the pump will not work properly. A clog in the check ball assembly at the bottom of the tub can also prevent the washer from draining properly.

Hey there, i got a miele w4800 front load washer that stopped working all of the sudden. The buzzer is going crazy and the drain and intake fault lights are flashing. Any ideas of how i could fix this...


You have water in the bottom pan of the machine. grab it at the back and tilt it forward. the water will run out and it will start working again, but you will probably need a concertina hose. This is the hose that connects the detergent compartment to the wash drum.

Washer is Kenmore He2 model # 110.46462501


Hi,
It sounds like you have something stuck in the pump.
To repair
Unplug machine.
Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be carful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

Whirlpool washing machine wont stop all lights


Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out.

While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes to try the door. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

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

Wont drain and start light and pre wash light flashing


HI, check the following to address this issue.

1. Clogged drain line or water pump
Check to see if there's something stuck inside the pump or the drain hose connected to the pump (pump is usually located at the bottom and towards the back of the washing machine).

2. Water Pump
If the drain line isn't clogged, you may have a problem with the water pump such as a frozen pulley or a broken impeller. If that's the case replace the water pump. Note: if you have a belt driven washer, check the belt(s) for cracks, as this would be a perfect time to replace the belt(s) if needed.

**The most common issue will be an obstructed hose or, line

Inlet/ drain light keeps flashing


You have a leak and the bottom pan is full of water. You can remove the cover at the bottom front of the dishwasher and see if the bottom pan is filled with water.

Intake Drain Light


My Miele Incognito dishwasher kept getting an error with intake/drain light. The light flashed 5 times. Phoned Miele Technical Support to investigate the problem. The problem is that a seal in the bottom of the dishwasher has failed and there was water in the motor pan. Currently, $175 service charge for the technician to come look at it.

I don't want to spend $175+ to have them replace a 75 cent rubber gasket that I could replace on my own.

Both the intake and drain lights are flashing


There are several simple solutions, one is reading the instruction manual. Check Intake: is any water entering? is it slow? This machine filters debris from the supply water so check the water intake filter. It is inside the end of the intake hose end against the home. Rinse it clean.
Drain: The same fault appears if the drain is clogged. Check if the lint trap is perfectly clean. Check the impeller (a set of fan blades) behind it spins freely. If buttons or coins get in there they can break off the fan blades and you can't drain water. Check the end of the drain hose if it drains. put it into a bucket or tub basin to observe how strong it pumps. Call Miele if these tips don't work. Be at the machine with Model and Serial number ready.
