    Intake drain lite goes on and the cycle stops. I've cleaned the drain and reset the cycle & restart the process but the "Intake Drain light" blinks and the cycle stops.

    I have been away for 3 months overseas only to come back to a not working dishwasher. I am not happy about this so does that mean you can't go overseas and have to pay $200 to have this done all the time?? Asked Miele to provide the circulation hook tool to fix this but they are denying it. Now I am have to find a Miele circulation hook tool elsewhere which is really ridiculous. After paying over $1000 for a dishwasher only surviving for 2.5 years. I might as well pay for a $400 dishwasher and change every 3 years.

This can happen after inactivity. the circulation pump seal sticks and wont turn . when the dishwasher starts to fill the circulation pump is pulsed on to see if the preasure switch switches over (to see if water is getting into the dishwasher) if the pump does not turn there is no preasure and the machine stops thinking no water has entered. turn pump by hand to cure.

hi,

this is a general fault light which could mean anything without a Miele Technician coming out and connecting a laptop to the unit. However most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage.
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: my miele dishwasher shows intake/drain light

hi, firstly check the filter in the waterproof system where the tap is to make sure it is not blocked. turn off the water and remove the connection with the white box attached this is the waterproof system. remove the black seal and you will see the filter. pull it out with a pair of pliers and clean it.

if this is ok check to see if you have a restrictor on the tap or inside the tap and also make sure water is flowing from the tap prior to reconnecting the waterproof system.
run the unit again and when it is time for the machine to call for water you can manually fill it and see if it works using a saucepan or bucket. if this works ok you may have a stuck waterproof system and probably need to replace this.
Hope this helps

Our 2 year old Miele dishwasher (G1182/G2182) makes a strange popping/grinding glass noise when draining. We used 1 bottle of Finish Intensive care & clean with no improvement. Any suggestions?


there is a piece of debris in the drain pump. remove the triple filter from the bottom ( the one you are supposed to clean every week to keep debris out of the drain pump) under that filter and to the left hand side you will see the non return valve. squeeze the tab and pull the non return valve out. remove the broken glass or whatever is stuck in the drain pump impeller. replace the non return valve. replace the filter. if you need a picture go to mieleusa.com, and search for your owners manual. it has step by step tutorials on how to free an obstruction from your drain pump.

Hello well you sure have the top of the line unit. You will have to pull it out and turn it over and remove the water pump and check for blockage the impeller should move when you turn it with your finger if not then replace the pump.

Red intake light comes on and dishwasher will not drain, model g 843 scvi


The manual is available here: http://www.miele.ca/miele/canada/OperatingInstructions/manuals.asp?ParFolder=Dishwashers&SubFolder=Previous%20models . Scroll down through the list to the G643 G843 Incognito. The maintenance items listed below are detailed on page 44 and beyond of the manual.

The Intake light is also the Drain error light. If the light is flashing, then turn off the dishwasher and clean the triple filter, the drain pump and the non return valve and make sure that there are no kinks in the drain hose.

Make sure the water is ccoming in at a pressure above 4.5 psi. Also make sure that the water valve is open and clean the water intake filter.

The final possibility is that the Waterproof system has tripped and you need a Miele technician to service the unit.

I hope this helps.

Miele G 843 Vi won't cycle. Fills, can be drained, but no wash.


Most units have a recirculating pump, and an output (drain) pump.

If I were you, I would disconnect it, drag it outside and turn upside-down (remove everything internal first)
Take off the drain pump and check over, then check the main pump motor for free rotation first.
Also clean both those, and check condition of hoses/ carbon brushes on main motor while you're there.
Doing this full service now should give you a long run without problems.
My guess is the main motor seal may have leaked a very little, allowing the spindle to sieze. Freeing it and applying light oil with regular use should be ok.
Replace carbon brushes if worn to save hassle later - they're cheap.

Drain intake indicator flashing. We have cleaned all but the intake filter. How do you clean or check to see if cleaning is necessary of the intake filter?


After cleaning the drain, looking at the intake (no filter on ours) and the light wouldn't go off, I just decided to take the ctrl-alt-delete approach and hit all the lower four buttons all at once, bingo, it cleared the light and machine started.

Hello , The inlet/drain light on my dishwasher is flashing , I have mislaid the manual can you explain how I can rectify the problem please , I am assuming something is blocked. Regards Georgina Cooke


My G892SC is almost 10 years old and recently had the same problem. The machine seemed to be stuck in the drain cycle and the intake/drain light flashed. I called Miele and ran through a few diagnostic tests but nothing worked. I had a Miele certified technician come out to look at the problem and he told me the drain pump needed to be replaced and that it would cost about $500 for the part and labor. While researching the cost of a new dishwasher, I stumbled on some online discussions about this problem and someone suggested pressing all 4 lower buttons on the control panel at the same time. I tried it last night and it worked! I only ran the wash & hold cycle but will try a full cycle tonight.
