Miele G898 SCI Plus Dishwasher

5 posts in this topic

Turned DW on last night at 10. Today I find Water intake light.  The dishwasher has not emptied rinse water.  Turned off the breaker for a minute. Did no good.

Water intake light blinks immediately, no sound. Empied DW and used wet vac to such out of bottom filter area - removed check valve - it was clear. I managed to put my little finger in the hole - and the impeller spins freely.

 

Pulled out DW, removed bottom plate - all dry underneath.

 

How do I diagnose this?   How I do I read the fault codes?  

 

Thanks.

Water intake light on the Miele usually indicates a problem with the circulating motor or drain pump.  Sounds like the water valve assy on the hose is ok.  Try resetting the control and start a new cycle.  If unit calls for water and then shuts down with the flashing Water Intake light shortly thereafter could be a bad circulating motor.  Might have to press and hold Program/Cycle button to reset.

It's a bit complex. Most common code is f08 - heater level switch. If you get this code the likely culprit is a clogged up wash pump. The heater level switch measures water pressure during the wash, if the pressure is incorrect, it'll stop the cycle. Usually the wash pump, which has lots of little spaces to catch stuff in, gets clogged and this reduces water pressure. To access the wash motor requires pulling the machine out and turning it on its back, then removing the bottom panel and the hosed and pulling the

Service Mode 2

Service Mode 2 is used to determine which upper electronic is in the appliance, to change certain programmed functions and to access fault codes. The programmed functions include increasing the water temperature, turning on or off the water softener, adding an interim rinse, and setting the dishwasher width (18” or 24”).

1. To access Service Mode 2, open the dishwasher door and turn the dishwasher off.

2. Press and hold program buttons 2 and 3 while turning the dishwasher on.

Successful accessing of Service Mode 2 is indicated by flashing Salt and

Intake/Drain lights.

To read fault codes:

1. Access Service Mode 2.

2. Press the flashing program button 5.

3. Press the flashing program button 1.

4. One of the program button lights (1 to 5) will light up, indicating a stored fault code of F0 -

F4. If none of the program buttons light, a fault code of F5 - F9 is stored. To display fault codes F5 - F9, press program button 6 once. Program button 6 will light up along with one of the other program buttons (1 to 5). See Table 6-72.
