Having problems with your Miele Dishwashers ?

Intake/drain light flashing

\015 The intake/drain light was flashing. I cleaned the filter ( which was clogged) but the light continues to flash and the dishwasher will not start\015

Answers :

I have (had) the exact same problem with my Miele. Here is what (appears) to have fixed it:
\015\012
\015\0121) Disconnect the inflow line at the water source. Its the connection that looks like a garden hose. Use a screw driver to remove the washer inside, the pull out the little filter with needle nose pliers. My was clogger with particles from the washer. Clean with soap and a tooth brush.
\015\012
\015\0122) Disconnect the outflow line at the garbage disposal. My was moderately clogged with food (Note: my son overfilled the garbage disposal before running. It may have backed up).
\015\012
\015\012This worked for now at least. Remeber, as irritating as red lights can be, it prevents the motors and pumps from burning out when you have clogged plumbing.

I cleaned the pump (found the user's manual online) then turned the selector switch to off. When I selected a wash, it started right up.

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.

Good morning. I have a KitchenAid KUDM01TJ with a constantly flashing "Rinse" light. when I hit the "Cancel" button, it too flashes in the same time with the Rinse light. I left the machine alone, came back a few days later and saw that the issue had resolved itself - but I didn't use the machine. A few days later, the "Rinse" light was flashing again and naturally, I hit "Cancel" to see if the same thing happened and it did. This time the lamps are still flashing.

Whirlpool model DU960 - from 2001, I think. Stopped running mid-cycle and the cycle lights flash. Won't run. How to fix? If I press 'Cancel/Drain', it flashes that button light. If I press one of the wash cycles again, it turns on the pump for about 1 second, shuts off and the lights flash again. I tried turning off the circuit breaker and turning it back on, but it still won't run. Is this fixable? Do I need to call for service? Or, would I be better off just replacing it?
