Having problems with your Miele 24 in. G656SCi Plus SS Built-in Dishwasher ?

On the MIELE G881 SCI plus -3 the cycle stops after about 2-3 minutes (enough time to purge the remaining water and fill the dish washer with new water). Then after 10 minutes it abandons de cycle and shows the red light "intake - purging". When i open the washer, the water inside is NOT warm.

Hello, Welcome to FixYa.

I'll start by saying on many Miele different issues can manifest in a similar scenario, water valve, leaks, etc. and then the error lights.

This particular error according to Miele indicates the inlet valve has failed or is possibly blocked (or at least partially blocked) thus dropping the inlet psi below the minimum allowed tolerance of 4.5psi

That being said, it can also indicate the valve or some other component (error codes are not foolproof, they are simply "clues" to what to look for) is leaking water into the base pan/overfill tray and activating the safety float/waterproof system.

**Turn off tor disconnect he power supplying the diahwasher before servicing unit...safety first**

If you can remove the lower toe panel/access plate, you should be able to confirm or dismiss any presence of water in the base pan, thus eliminating that possible scenario and moving to other possibilities.

The next step is to investigate the possible water inlet valve blockage/restriction. You will need to turn off the water supply to unfasten the supply at the dishwasher valve. Check the screens for any debris which may cause complete or more likely partial blockage and clean/remove if present.

Check these things out and we can go from there. I'll await your next post.

If this resolves the issue I Thank you for choosing FixYa for your inquiry and hope you will take a moment to rate the information I provided in an effort to assist you.

\015\012Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while\015\012draining. You would need to check for air gap on the dishwasher, it may be\015\012clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining, sometimes the drain flow is\015\012restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will resolve the\015\012issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized (or stuck)\015\012drain pump. Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to\015\012the dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray\015\012on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections &\015\012remove motor (single screw holds motor, it is on the outside back of the\015\012machine). Try to rotate the motor (use WD40 is necessary). If you cannot rotate\015\012it, then motor will be required. If the error still appears then cancel the\015\012error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press\015\012the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Switch the appliance off\015\012and then back on again. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more\015\012information.

Cycle begins and we can hear water filling up, but the arm doesn't spin, and water isn't being "sprayed" around the washer. We can hear the dishwasher "clicking" throughout the cycle, but nothing else is happening, and about 10 minutes through the cycle water just comes pouring out the bottom of the door. There is a bit of a burning smell as well.

Champion dishwasher we have a champion freestanding dishwasher at my church. after the cycle is completed, the pressure guage behind the washer still shows 25-30 and it contnues to spray water. not forced by the motor, but more like a stuck open fill valve. if i turn off the water and run it, then turn the water back on, the valve is closed and does not let water freely in. butif i run it with the water on, it will continue to spray in freely after the cycle light goes out and you open the door.

If you turn the unit off from the circuit breaker will the water still run?if so the guts inside the solenoid valve are worn.you can call champion and get a kit to replace the worn parts and its not difficult to do.hope this helps. ... Dishwashers
