Question about Miele Dishwashers

1 Answer

I assume the spring in my Miele dishwasher G 851 SC has broken. There was a bang and the dishwasher door is now heavy and just falls if not held. How do I change the spring?

    The door springs are no longer hooked. Door is now very heavy and has no resistance.

G660 door falls open


Hi.

The problem is either because the spring supporting the door half way up is broken or because the spring must be adjusted.

First perform a door spring adjustment procedure as explained at page 28 in chapter 10 of the Installation Manual.

Here Miele installation manual for the G660. The file is in PDF format.

If the regulation procedure does not do the job, then the spring must be replaced.

This video shows how to replace the spring (model and manufacturer are different-operations are similar):




The spring is usually sold as part of the hinge assembly.

To get parts or to book a qualified technician call the Miele support number listed on the owners manual or use the Contact page on your local Miele website. Here UK website: Miele - Contact Us.

Regards.

Miele g 851 sc i have a leak under the unit (below the right door hinge) when i run the machine


hi,

make sure you are not using too much detergent. no more than 2 teaspoons. try running the unit with no detergent a few times. if problem still persists then check the door seal or remove the door panel and make sure the overflow tray running along the base of the door where the hinges are is not blocked with food. also check the door is closing enough to seal,the door latch may have moved. check the tightness of the screws

Heavy dishwasher door that falls open


I think any parts person would recognize it by that name.

It's a fairly simple fix.

The one you have may just be loose on one end and not broken -- check that before you buy one.

Broken door spring?


Either a spring or a door cable. On newer Kitchenaids and Whirlpools, it is usually a "cable" made of rope and plastic that breaks, not the spring itself. Get me the complete model number and I will look it up for you...

Miele Touchtronic G892 SC Water leak at base of door


check the rubber seal around the door to see if its torn or smashed. if it is replace it, could someone have set somthing heavy on the door while it was open that would have stressed the hinges. it is most likely one of these problems take a nail file and slid it gently between the door and the body of the dishwasher if it slides in easy where it leaks you know the seal is bad and replace it.

Kitchaide Dishwash Door


There is normally 2 heavy springs & cables that control the "falling" of the door located in the bottom of the machine or it the door itself. Sounds like one (or both) have snapped.
