Miele dishwasher red inlet light flashes

\015 THE RED LIGHT ON THE "INLET/DRAIN" IS FLASHING ON THE MIELE DISHWASHER AND WON'T RUN A CYCLE.HAVE TAKEN OFFWHITE DOME AND SPUN PUMP WHEEL.BUT STILL RED LIGHT ON ANY IDEAS\015

Answers :

This is most probably a software glitch. I had the same issue a week ago and my dishwasher is only about 2 yrs old and only gets used on average once a fortnight.
\015\012
\015\012At first I did everything as the manual shows in the troubleshooting section. The whole process takes only about 5 to 15 minutes depending on how good of a handyman you are.
\015\012
\015\012When I cleaned all the parts involved (all pretty clean to start with anyway) and connect them all back, sadly the red light wouldn't go.
\015\012It looked like I was stuck with the most hated option I had left: call the dreaded technician and be prepared to depart with some hard-earned cash.
\015\012
\015\012Before doing that and out of desperation, I decided to surf the net for clues, blogs, forums, etc... and on one of them I found my answer.
\015\012One blogger suggested that "if anything else fails, try the 'reset' step" which means pressing at the same time the On/Off button and the Start/Stop button. That operation put a big smile on my face (and my wife's face too) as the red light magically disappeared.
\015\012
\015\012My suggestion is "first try the reset trick and if that fails try and clean the parts as the manual shows". It'll save you headaches because the reset would do the trick in 90% of cases.
\015\012
\015\012I work in IT and I can understand the fact that a software malfunction would trigger the red light and not reset it.
\015\012
\015\012Good luck.
I had a similar problem on a different model, and I'd suggest you try what I tried.

I would first check the drain works by putting some water in the machine a few times and turning it on - AFAIK it should drain. If it doesn't, turn it off and disconnect the electricity then check that the non return valve is clear and OK, and clear any obstruction in the hose and drain pipe.

If it does drain, shut off the electricity and disconnect it, shut off and disconnect the water supply, take the inlet hose off and clean the filter in the end of the hose. One could descale the filter in dilute acid or vinegar, then rinse it, check water flows through it fine under a tap. Check its got plenty of water pressure and flow from the outlet (I'd do that by just crackign the pipe seal with the water on, but be careful if you do that....). Put it back together and try it.

If that doesn't work, shut of and disconnect the electricity and check whether there's a big puddle in the bottom machinery compartment (on ours its a panel at the front behind the kickboard with a couple of Pozi screws holding it). If there is a big puddle, dry it out with paper towel, put it back together and see if it works.

If that worked, its a leaky seal somewhere on the machine but the thing is probably otherwise OK. To sort that one needs to identify the seal in question and replace it, or just do all the seals to overkil it.

Good luck with yours

Hello, I have a problem with our Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher. It starts its cycle OK, draining out any residual water, taking in fresh water and doing the initial rinse.

Hi. Our DS603I dishwasher starts on the Rinse cycle on its own - it beeps, red light flashing and no water entering the tub. It does this even if it is open. Similarly, when we try to turn it on to do a normal or heavy cycle, it starts (making quiet a loud noise) and then goes to the Rinse cycle, beeping, red light flashing, no water going into the tub. The pump wheel is turning. We can't find any blockages in the tubes. We have power-cycled it many times. Please help!
