SOURCE: Miele dishwasher - Turbothermic drying

I found this elsewhere on the net. Seemed to work for me. You need 2 pairs of hands though 1 to hold things together the other to work the screw driver. Thanks to Peter.
I had the same problem on my Miele Dishwasher. Basically the outlet built into the door gets gummed up. You can access it by undoing the screws around the edge of the inside of the door. This will allow you to release the front door cover from the inner stainless steel cover and there will be the tubes etc. for the front vent. Take them off and you will find them blocked with gunge. Give them a jolly good clean so it allows the condensation to drain back into the machine . You will also find the fan in there as well. Clean all around that as well if it's dirty. Put it all back together and no more gurgling or water on the floor when the doors opened. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Miele dishwasher drying problem

you need to remove the front of the door.there is a small pipe from the dryer fan to the top of the detergent dispenser. tis usualy gets blocked at the fan end. also the spout from the fan. this happens if you dont rinse loose food of the items you put in the dishwasher.

SOURCE: how do I improve the drying in my electrolux

The energy efficiency that has so much attention by the EPA has made it so that they probably will not dry completely any longer. Has the unit ever dried completely before? If it hasn't, then the only thing you can do is adjust your dishes so the water will not stand in the bottoms of cups, etc.

You might also check your heated dry "feature" on your dishwasher to assure that it has been selected to dry at optimum heat temperature. Also, do not open the dishwasher before the drying cycle has been completed.

Bosch has the best drying dishwasher model made so when it's time to replace this unit, choose a higher end Bosch for the best drying and the quietest models available.

SOURCE: Drying cycle vent fan is noisy. How can I fix it

I had the same issue but mine is an inbuilt unit. I removed the 4 screws for the front main facia panel which was then removed. Following this I removed the 6 screws that hold the plastic control cover in place and then the three screws (1 top centre and 1 on left and right) that holds the control plate which I then gentrly lowered.

I then used a flat blade screw driver to turn the inside fan cover anti clockwise about 45 degrees which allows the fan module to be removed. Then disconnected the drain pipe at the fan module only and power and control cables.

I then blew the gunk out of the fan module and gave this a good wash through with hot water to ensure it was clean and then dryed with paper towel. I then also blew out the drain pipe. The remaining gunk was blown into the interior of the dish washer out a vent just below the rinse aid unit.

If I need to do this again then I would have removed both ends of the pipe and washed this through with hot soapy water to make sure it was clean.

To reassemble do the reverse process. Assistance will probably be required to reassemble the front main facia panel as one person would need two hands to hold in place and another to locate and start the screws. A couple of clamps could over come this.

Damper vents


I own the Electrolux EWDW6505GS--0 {24'' Built-In Dishwasher with Wave-Touch® Controls}

On two occasions I have had the "Error 04
Drying Damper - Drying damper not operating"

In each case, I found the plastic 'ring nut' RETAINER in the upper right top of the machine had come loose. I simply unscrewed the retainer, wiped the area down, and re-screwed the ring on hand tight.


Here is a picture of the retainer;

A new retainer part (if it is broken) may be ordered here at the RepairClinic;

Amana BR22VL refrigerator section stopped cooling.

is there any frost on your food packages or on the ceiling where the light is?if so the door was left open and the air vents are froze up or you have a bad damper or evaporator fan motor,open the freezer door,do you hear the fan blowing?if so the fan motor is good,check for ice on the ceiling and packages,if that checks good look at the back inside wall of the freezer,if that's covered with like snow or frost you have a defrost problem or also you have a damper in your model,it's closed and won't open to let the cold air in from the freezer.
go here,this is the part,all that happens is the evaporator coil in the freezer gets cold,the evap fan blows the cold air from the freezer up into the fridge section,in your model the damper door opens to let the cold air in,when it gets cold enough the damper closes and that's it,so if the door wasn't left open and the fan is blowing in the freezer you have a bad damper.

Air is on but not coming out of the front vent in my gmc 04 envoy

Check the main air duct from the fan. It's located behind the glove compartment. It may have fallen off. Also check the fan itself or it's fuse.

My air vents are not working properly. my fan works in all speeds but the air mostly only comes thru the defrost vent. I started to take the dash apart on the passenger side but I am not sure what to do...

Many auto vent dampers use engine vaccum to actuate the dampers so if there is leak in a hose it would cause the damper to default to defrost mode. reccomend checking for hoes through fire wall under dash for breaks or disconnected.

I have an error 04 showing on my dishwasher, and the cycle will not run. Please help!

dryer damper problem. there is another post that will help from electrolux personnel.
Thank you in advance for allowing Electrolux to assist you in
this matter.

I apologize for the inconvenience and concerns this dishwasher unit has been causing you. Unfortunately the error "E04" code does indicate an issue with the drying damper. Now this is something that a technician would have to assess because wiring is needed to be checked.

Check wiring between Main Control Board and upper fan. If correct, replace upper fan.

If your unit is brand new it is covered under warranty and you can choose to contact your dealer for a repair technician, or visit to find a listing in your area.

Kindest Regards,

Venting hood not working on microwave mdel# JVM1630BJ03

Start the fan and check the outside vent first.I have found the weatherstrip on the exterior damper can get coated with grease and will become stuck and not allow the damper to open.
