Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened? Look for obstructions.
1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.
FA is a problem with the tubidity sensor. By holding down the power button, it stops, but just repeats everytime you try a new wash cycle. So keep doing it and you can atleast use it. If you want to go one step further and find a permanent solution try feeling around in the sump (where the filter slots in) being
careful for any broken glass. Other than that it will probably be a
strip-down job to examine the internal hoses and the pump; not a DIY
job to be honest.
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.
Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. The
dishwasher is not draining properly. Please check for air gap on the dishwasher
is not clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining properly and sometimes the
drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will
resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized
(or stuck) drain pump. Keep handy large bowls and towels to soak the water out.
Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the
dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray
on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections and
switch it on. If the error still appears then turn the rotary selector switch
to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx.
5 secs to cancel the error message. Switch the appliance off and then back on
again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
Hello & Welcome to FixYaWasher not draining completely problem usually occurs due to clogged/blocked drain hose or the drain pump not working. First try to clean the drain hose and drain pump filter for any clogs, then check drain pump operation. If the problem returns after cleaning then it is the drain pump that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin
The error indicates that the machine has taken too long to drain the water. Do the following.
Switch off the machine, unplug or disconnect the mains power to the machine and turn off the water supply to the machine.
Remove the access panel on the lower right front of the machine.
3.Remove the filter and make sure that the filter is not blocked and is clean and clear of all debris. Clean as required. Note that if the machine has stopped and not fully drained then you may be able to drain out the excess water by removing or disconnecting the waste hose and laying it on the ground in a tray. It may take a few minutes to empty but it will save a small flood. 4.Proceed by checking the drain hose for proper connection and kinks and make sure that it is not blocked or restricted. 5.Also check that the main waste drain pipe and one way valve to a sink waste connection if you use one, is not blocked and clean if required. 6.Access the pump from under the lower rotor arm and protective grille and check that the impeller is free to move and is not clogged or restricted by debris or sludge. Clean as required. 7.Reconnect the power and switch the machine on. If the problem persists then do the following. 8.Switch off the machine and disconnect the mains power. 9.Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure it is operational. 10.Remove the connecting hoses, and expect water to drain out and make sure the pipes are not blocked with debris or any object blockage. 11.Reconnect the hoses and then reconnect power and switch the machine on. 12.If problem has not been corrected, then remove the pump and check that the drive coupling to the motor is OK and that the motor turns OK. If all is well then replace the pump.
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.
Tarvi...I don't know what the problem is...hard to diagnose these things. If the unit is working correctly, I suggest that you simply cut the power for a few minutes and then restart it. That may clear our a trouble code.
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.
