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 G646 SC plus I wish to remove the right hand side panel of my dishwasher. I have managed to do this with the exception of the top of this panel. Does the top surface have to be removed to release...


Hi - if i rember correctly on the sides front top panel is a plastic bung, pop this off and you would see the screws inside - oly problem is most of the later Mieles have torqx screws - anyway if you succeed the gently lift front & push backwards - the top will come off.

But the best ways is to empty the washer of water pull it away from the cabinets disconnect everything.

Lie the silly thing on its back on the bottom will be 4 screws normally this will drop the bottom panels & makes it easier for you to work on the machine.

According to the parts manual this would have a waterproof inlet valve system - typical design for Mieles.

JUST BE CAREFUL - Mieles are excellent machines, try not to damage other components - perhaps the leaks is coming from some other - Miele parts are as costly as the purchase prices.

Hope to see how you get on...

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,

The G638 finished its cycle but didn't completely


pump maybe on it's way out, though i doubt it, is the washing machine on the same drain out? if so you may have back wash, another could be lengh of drain hose, i had the same problem with my miele dishwasher because of the position in the kitchen i doubled up the drain hose and though it pumped out fine, with the volume of water left in the hose it came back in untill i repositioned the drain hose so it could't run back, hope this helps.

Dishwasher stops after 10 minutes inlet/drain light flashing


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Miele G646 dishwasher keeps trying to pump out


Had a similar problem with an 846, but with the inlet outlet lamp flashing. the bottom tray had filled with watedr froma dodgy seal. I switched off and disconnected the electricity. Removed the bottom front cover below the door (2 screws behind the pretty kickboard which also had to come off). The bottom of the machien was a big puddle. I dried this out with paper twowel, put the machine back together and it ran fine. I am going to replace the pump seals now as the machine seems otherwise OK.

Good luck with yours. rupertvdpP

My O/H found a considerable amount of gunge in the inlet pipe; that seems to have solved it! Thanks for your interest.

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.
