Miele G892 SC dishwasher stops 5 minutes after starting with flashing inlet/drain light. The drain is working because it drains at the beginning. Water is also coming in. None of the holes in the spray are...

If your Miele G892 SC dishwasher is stopping 5 minutes after starting with a flashing inlet/drain light, there could be a few different reasons. Here are a few things you can try to troubleshoot the problem:
  1. Check the water pressure: Make sure that the water pressure is within the required range for the dishwasher (between 1.5 and 5 bar).
  2. Check the inlet hose: Make sure that the inlet hose is not kinked or clogged.
  3. Check the water inlet valve: Make sure that the water inlet valve is not clogged or malfunctioning.
  4. Check the water level sensor: Make sure that the water level sensor is not clogged or malfunctioning.
  5. Check the control board: Make sure that the control board is not malfunctioning.
  6. Check the temperature sensor: Make sure that the temperature sensor is not malfunctioning.
  7. Contact Miele customer support: If you have tried all the above steps and the dishwasher is still not working, it may be best to contact Miele customer support for further assistance. They will be able to diagnose and fix the issue or tell you if a repair is needed.
It's important to keep in mind that the Miele G892 SC is an older model dishwasher, which makes it harder to find replacement parts and professional repair services.

Inlet/drain light flashes on miele dishwasher and it wont start - I can hear the pump but no water - I have checked and cleaned all pipes etc

The outlet pump is triggered by the anti flood micro switch via the polystyreene float on the base of the washer. If any water for whatever reason (leaky pipe)is on the floor the machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and only works once the water and the cause is rectified

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.

Intake/drain light is flashing

When this happens with my dishwasher it usually means that the drain is clogged with food/debris.  To fix 1) remove bottom dish rack from machine 2) using a small cup, scoop out as much water as possible 3) remove inlet drain cover and unsnap the plastic insert and remove 4) rinse the plastic part and reinstall 5) start machine 6) if light still flashes, repeat steps 3 4 and 5 and restart

Half way through a program then stops, leaving water in the bottom of the machine

Check the flood switch first. It will stop the dishwasher but you may hear a moter running.

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.
