it is just possible you have a problem with the drain.
if you plumbed the drain to a spigot on the sink trap, did you make sure the spigot is not blanked? the sink spigot will be blanked if it has not been used before to stop water from the sink coming out.
just a guess but worth checking. also check drain hose not kinked

When I turn on the dishwasher, the light on program 6 flashes but the program will not start.


Pull the power plug or turn off the circuit breaker for about 30 seconds, plug it back in or turn the breaker on and the diswasher brain should have reset. Good Luck.

Miele Advanta dishwasher beeping


Buzzer
The end of a program and faults can be
announced by a buzzer tone.
The buzzer at the end of a program
sounds five times in intervals with a
brief break in between. The buzzer
sounds up to one hour if the
dishwasher is not turned off.
The buzzer for a fault sounds
continuously. The buzzer sounds for up
to two minutes if the dishwasher is not
turned off or the fault is fixed.
The buzzer is activated by default. It
can be set to off, so it does not sound
at the end of a program. The buzzer for
a fault cannot be set to off.
^ Open the door.
^ Turn the dishwasher off o.
^ Press the program button and at the
same time turn the dishwasher on g.
Hold the program button until the
lower right program indicator comes
on.
If it does not come on, start over.
^ Press the program button briefly four
times.
The "Intake/Drain" indicator flashes 4
times in intervals.
The upper right program indicator
shows if the program end buzzer is
turned on or off.
- Upper right program indicator
flashes: Buzzer is turned on
- Upper right program indicator is off:
Buzzer is turned off
it is not easy to disable the buzzer. you have to hold the buttons down exactly the way it tells you to in the manual. you also have to pay attention to the lights and make sure they are flashing the proper sequences. try it two or three times. you will eventually get the hang of it. not sure where you live, but the miele techs have a computer that allows them to disable the beeper if you are unsuccessful. the proceedure is copied below.



^ To change the setting, press the
program button until the
"Intake/Drain" indicator lights.
^ Press the program button briefly
three times.
The setting is saved.

When I turn it on, it starts to hum but after 30 seconds the red light flashes and the intake/drain light is on. The Miele tech support says to take of the kick plate and empty check for a clog. Any...


Hello,
A fairly common occurence with Miele dishwashers is the seal on the pump/motor assambly swells up freezeing the motor.Miele makes tool to free it up very easily,if it doesnt reoccur the seal just swelled and it will be ok once freed up.If it does reoccur the seal needs to be replaced. Any Miele authorized service company will have this tool and could free the motor up within 5 minutes and only a couple uses will tell if it will swell again and need to be replaced.


Perhaps Miele could send you one of those tools so you could try and see it the pump seal has swelled up and stuck.

I have a Miele Inspira line dishwasher and it is making a horrible sounds when I turn it on - like the water is not getting through easily


Hi If noise starts within one minute of start of program then you most likely have debris in drain pump. Under filter you will find non return valve remove valve this will expose drain pump impeller. with non return valve removed run program for 30 seconds refit valve and test. More in depth instructions available in user handbook.

Miele Dishwasher G892SCU Plus Intake/Drain light keep flashing


Hello RD,
Every Miele dishwasher is designed to drain water in the first 30 seconds of any cycle. Does your intake/drain light come on at all? Miele technical services can troubleshoot the fault code if you do get an intake/drain light.
The most common issue I have seen is that the dishwasher drain line is clogged.
Solution - Try checking the airgap at the top of your sink, if nothing there then check the end of the drain line usually connected to the garbage disposal if you have one. I would reccomend disconnecting the end of the drain line and putting it into a bucket. Let the dishwasher run for 30 seconds and if it drains then its a problem with your garbage disposal. If not I would contact Miele technical support to troubleshoot the fault code

Good luck

G 892 intake light on


Reset the program by holding down the start button. It will be blinking. Then try the same wash selection and start it. If you wired correctly the drain pump will run 30 seconds. If the intake light comes on in 5 seconds and the drain pump is still running then you have a leak. Miele dishwashers have a safety system that catches water and triggers the alert. Ifthis is the case, there's nothing you can do but get a repair person to pull the machine out and find the leak. If the pump does drain only 30 seconds, then it will stop the pump and let water in. If it fills okay then it will circulate the water and if you haven't oversudsed it [ Energy Star machines use much less water and therefore make much more suds if you fill up the dispenser too high with detergent ] the suds will not trip the pressure switch. Otherwise it will start to heat the water. If the intake light comes on again it's important to know when it does. The computer inside evaluates 100's of steps. The Techs at Miele will need to run it with you on the phone. They have scripted access to the electronic memory and you participate to find the information. They can determine if you can fix it or not.

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.
