Miele G646 SC plus I wish to remove the right hand side panel of my dishwasher. I have managed to do this with the exception of the top of this panel. Does the top surface have to be removed to release...


Hi - if i rember correctly on the sides front top panel is a plastic bung, pop this off and you would see the screws inside - oly problem is most of the later Mieles have torqx screws - anyway if you succeed the gently lift front & push backwards - the top will come off.

But the best ways is to empty the washer of water pull it away from the cabinets disconnect everything.

Lie the silly thing on its back on the bottom will be 4 screws normally this will drop the bottom panels & makes it easier for you to work on the machine.

According to the parts manual this would have a waterproof inlet valve system - typical design for Mieles.

JUST BE CAREFUL - Mieles are excellent machines, try not to damage other components - perhaps the leaks is coming from some other - Miele parts are as costly as the purchase prices.

Hope to see how you get on...

The door of my Miele G646 SCI semi-integrated dishwasher has suddenly become stiff to move up or down. I am guessing there is a problem with the spring? Any suggestions what to try or how to get access?


Most probably the decor door has swollen and catching on adjoining cabinets. removed decor door via two screws down the left and right hand side of door and see if that helps. If springs snaps then the door will drop very quickly and take the skin off you shins

I have a miele G646 dishwasher whihs has sprung a leak into the bottom tray. Have dried it up and reset float switch but the water seems to be coming from a pipe on the left hand side of the machine. i...


Hello,
It sounds like the leak is coming from the water intake hose.
The water intake house is located at the bottom sump of the dishwasher. To get to it the dishwasher has to be taken out and put on its back and the floor plan needs to come off. The intake hose runs from the inlet valve under your sink and attaches to the sump with a metal keeper. Overtime the part of the hose where the keeper is cracks (Normal wear and tear). As I recall the intake hose runs approx. $129.99 from Miele direct. It comes with an inlet valve on the hose. there is no separate or substitute hose you can use.

Good luck

Dishwasher stops after 10 minutes inlet/drain light flashing


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Miele G646 dishwasher keeps trying to pump out


Had a similar problem with an 846, but with the inlet outlet lamp flashing. the bottom tray had filled with watedr froma dodgy seal. I switched off and disconnected the electricity. Removed the bottom front cover below the door (2 screws behind the pretty kickboard which also had to come off). The bottom of the machien was a big puddle. I dried this out with paper twowel, put the machine back together and it ran fine. I am going to replace the pump seals now as the machine seems otherwise OK.

Good luck with yours. rupertvdpP

My O/H found a considerable amount of gunge in the inlet pipe; that seems to have solved it! Thanks for your interest.
