Re Miele dishwasher Incognito - model G843VIPLUS When

Resolved Question:

Re: Miele dishwasher Incognito - model G843VIPLUS:

When using setting 5 - Economy, unit continually washes, will not drain. Have had to stop unit (after 1 hour+) & switch to rinse & hold to finish cycle.

Have checked drain for blockage. Also, have tried disconnecting from power source to reset, but has not helped.

Suggestions, please.

Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

If the drain line were an issue, the unit would never drain---that includes a bad pump, a clogged drain hose, or something blocking the drain impeller. That means that your control board is just faulty and not telling the dishwasher to run through the cycles correctly. The control board inside the door will need to be ordered and replaced and it's usually a $300+ part.
