20 Most Recent Miele 23 in. Novotronic G841 Built-In Dishwasher Questions & Answers


Miele G841 Built in. Intake/Drain light on/flashing and the dishwasher just shuts down.

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.

G841 miele dishwasher flashing start and end lights

In my case it was a blocked impeller, which had not been cleaned for 10 years we have had the dishwasher. To get to the impeller, remove the (usually silver) mesh as you do when you clean the filter. There is a plastic pipe, hump arrangement held in place by a wire clamp. Flip clamp off - toward the filter side (use screwdriver if fingers not enough). Pull out plastic pipe. underneath is the impeller and you can see if there is gunk there. If so, remove using fingers, screwdriver, anything that will get it out. Spin impeller to make sure all gunk is out, also to see if it is able to spin freely. You can also clean the pipe, black rubber stopper and steel ball inside th epipe. Just make sure you have a good look how it is asssembled. replace all parts to the way it was. Run a cycle and see if lights still flash. If so, problem is elsewhere, but at least you know that this is not the problem. calling out a Miele technicin to clean your impeller would be rather uneconomic.

My dish washer is not draining

Is the Intake/Drain light in the front dislay is flashing? if so, the drain hose might be clogged most probably. Most of the times accumulation occurs where the drain hose connects to the drain pipe under the kitchen sink. This can be easly cleaned by disconnecting the hose and removing any food waste from the pipe and hose. The other cause could be the check valve near the drain pump contaminated. The check valve is located near the bottom filter. This check valve is secured with a wire bracket and can be easly removed upon slidding the wire bracket. Rinse the valve and make sure the ball inside moves freely. Also verify and clean the ports where the check valve connects. Good luck!

Salt reservoir

Yes. The water flows throught the reservoir regardless. The only difference is the salt indicator in the front dash will not lit.

Washer doesn't start / lights up. Breaker is OK, electrical outlet too... What could be the problem ?? Control Board.. Fuse

More than likely it is the computer board. However it can be also caused by the main power switch or the door interlock switch. There is no fuse, the main power supply is part of the computer board. The switches are very easy to check but the front display panel of the dish washer needs to be disassembled as access to the main computer board is required. A multimeter it is also required for the switch verification. Make sure the main power cord of the dishwasher has been unpluged. Removing the front display panel it is not difficult. Once the front display panel is removed you have access to the main power switch and the door interlock switch. Unplug the power cord from the dishwasher and remove the connectors from both switches. Verify continuity on both switches using the multimeter. If you have electronics back ground skills you can also verify if the main computer board has power; for this you need to have both switches connected and the door interlock switch latched. You should be able to measure 110 volts AC on the two wires comming out of the main power switch connecting to the comptuter board. Good luck!
