Look inside the door for the model number. Sometimes the one on the manual isnt the same.

It is G843
Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I would like to try to fix my G843 miele. It is not draining. I have already removed the non return valve to make sure the pump is free and can move. I found nothing blocking it. This past time, when I removed that valve, some water returned from the drain into the sink. I can not seem to remove the tube leading to the dishwasher.
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 month ago.

Do you have a garbage disposal the drain is hooked to underneath the sink?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
I have now removed the tube connecting the drain to the garbage disposal and it is clear.
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 month ago.

If every hose is clear then either the drain pump or control board are faulty.

How do determine whether it is the drain pump or the control board? where is the control board?
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 month ago.

The control board is inside the door. You will just have to replace the pump and if the problem continues replace the control board. If you order from Sears or Repair Clinic they have a 365 day return.

I have cleared the tubes of the dishwasher, and the pump works. It drains but at the end of the cycle, there is always 4 inches or so of water on the bottom. When I turn the unit on or off or I push the drain button, it pumps it all out. Is this the control panel?
Expert:  Jamie_2013 replied 1 month ago.

SO is the unit still not draining?
