SOURCE: Miele G2872 scvi how do

Hi -

Please can you let me know which language the dishwasher is currently set for. You need to access the settings menu to change the language but if "settings" is written in Danish or Spanish, for example, you probably wont know when you've found it. If you can let me know the current language setting, I can tell you the correct options to select.

The fastest washing cycle (Quick Wash) will be simple to select if the washer is set to English, so it makes more sense to solve that problem than continue trying to operate the washer in a foreign language.

Please let me know what is written on the display when you first switch the dishwasher on. You may need to press the CANCEL () button once to show the main-menu if there is a wash cycle in the memory.

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.

Miele g 1874 scvi, finished sound

Is this a high-pitched whine or screech? If so, then you have the Miele Problem.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is a stupid problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.

The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service, but it is easy to learn to do it yourself. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk, muck and slop.

Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!

Miele Icognito G683 SCVI Plus. Residual water seems to be standing under the base guard and lots of moisture remains in the dishwasher?

Many dishwashers intentionally leave a bit of water in them to keep the seals from drying out...
if there is more there now then ther used to be then check this out...

Have Miele G653 SCVi plus. We have inlet/drain flashing red light


Sounds like something is caught in th drain pump as the unit has to drain first before anything else happens. Remove the filter and the non return valve which is under the clip in the sump of the unit. In the manual it shows you this. Make sure the drain pump is free of any foreign particles like broken glass. Then start the unit again so it goes to drain without the non return valve in place. This will then throw out any foreign particles as well.

or it could be the drain pump is activated all the time which is the noise you hear as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. You will see the float at the front. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck
