Miele G2470 inlet / drain light

8 posts in this topic

My Miele 2470 dishwasher will start beeping about 15-20 seconds after I start a cycle and will beep. There is no error code displayed but the inlet / drain light is flashing red and beeping. I followed all the cleaning instructions in the manual and it did not solve the problem. I cleaned the water inlet filter and that did nothing. I also poured two large cups of water into the dishwasher to see if the dishwasher was pumping the water into my garbage disposal and it did.

I called Miele and they ran me through the list of things I had already tried and told me to call a repair man. The repair man can't come for a week and wants $185 just to come out.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

Thanks - Ed

Are you able to extract a fail code, or further analysis using the pearls of wisdom that Master Reg has anointed you with ?

Thanks for the reply.

I entered the test mode and there are no errors logged so I'm still confused. I poured a pitcher of water into it and then turned it on to see if it would empty the water as soon as I started it and it did so I'm assuming there may be something wrong with whatever comes next which I would imagine is getting water into the machine. I did check the filter on the inlet and it was fine. So I'm not sure what to do at this point...

Start the machine and note what occurs and when it fails, while in failure - code can be extracted

When I start the machine it pumps the water that's left on the bottom out. Then is sounds like it's trying to start up and then the machine beeps and the inlet / drain light flashes red. As far as I can tell the only way to get the code is to go into service mode and when I do that I get F0 which means there are no errors. I can't run the machine in service mode as far as I can tell so I'm not sure when you say "while in failure - code can be extracted because I can't get into the serivce mode without pushing to off button once it goes into failure (hope that's not too confusing)

P/M'd service modes, when you start a cycle you should hear water begin to fill once the initial pump out is complete, if not - start by ensuring water is available

Thanks. I tried several of the test modes and none of them had water getting in. There must be something wrong with whatever lets the water into the dishwasher. No codes are being shown. It's like there's no water but I know the water is hooked up

I know the water is hooked up

Yes, but to what ? There needs to be full pressure there and no blockages in the screen

See the manual for testing the "water proof"
