Plastic in rotating arms of miele dishwasher

My top of the line Miele dishwasher has never performed well.  Before getting rid of it I paid $119 for a service tech to check it out. I explained that when it was new, someone who had never worked a dishwasher put the all-in- one dish-soap tablet in a few times with the wrapper still on before I caught it.He said there was no way this was the problem and said my jet holes in  the rotating arms were totally clean. He suggested a $500 fix in addition to this call.... new motor$400 plus $100 labor: I went looking for new machines yesterday. However, this morning I inspected the blade that comes out easily and noticed that there was indeed a small piece of plastic behind one of the holes. I was only able to pull a small amount of this out with tweezers and can see more inside. Is there a solvent that would dissolve the plastic wrapper without damaging the blade itself

SOURCE: Miele G646SC Plus dishwasher Drainage / inlet warning light

I had the same problem a few days ago. I followed the instructions to clean the filter and check to see that the impeller was free to rotate in both directions. The problem persisted. After reading this thread, and a similar one on another site, I tried what mikeboerma suggested in "solution #3", and bingo, problem solved. The magic combination is to push and hold the on/off button and the start/stop button.

SOURCE: How do I use the washing machine, a miele novotronic w 969

The I is the pre-wash and the III is the main wash where you put the soap powder. the # star looking symbol is the fabric conditioner.

If you don't have a manual you can download this from the miele website.

SOURCE: Miele CVA 4075 brew unit locked

Turn your machine off. Close the door. Depress <clear>, holding it down, press <on/off> then let go of both. Then press <clear> 3 times. On 3rd time, hold it until Service menu appears. Select <brew unit> then press left arrow to turn from <off> to <on>. Then press right arrow by <select> This will turn your brew unit drive to the correct position and you should be able to get your brew unit in/out and your waste container back in. Make sure to turn your machine off/on again to get out of Service Menu. I have a picture of how the wire needs to be inserted to get that back on. It's definitely not intuitive, but send another note with your email address and I can send the pics.

SOURCE: miele grind cycle not working on miele coffee


if you move the grinder level across to the left in one action it can jam up the grinder and even damage the grinder. if adjusted is required you should move it one mark, make a coffee and then move it another mark and make a coffee.
if you can't hear the grinder operating when you make a coffee then it sounds like it could be damaged.

I have a Miele dishwasher G841 SCI and the middle spray arm will not stay attached

We have one and it is hard to get it to stay in place. I cannot easily explain how to do it, my wife is the one who has the knack of getting it on! I can suggest that you be sure the rings and tabs are going together correctly, and then press hard. Good luck!

I have a Miele Platinum Turbothermic dishwasher. The intake drain light is flashing and the bottom of the washer is full of water. How do I fix it?

I have this same dishwasher I already dumped 400 into it to fix the intake drain and no more than a few uses after it breaks again I have never had more problems with a top of the line product or so what Miele thinks it is. I absolutely hate this dishwasher I refuse to put anymore money into it it is the worst product and Miele is no help they don't care whatsoever. I will never ever purchase Miele products they are more work and headache than cheaper models which will stand the test of time. What a complete piece of you know what.

Miele G880 dishwasher, stuck in "Top Solo" mode.

If the unit is really stuck in 'top solo' then the most likely culprit is the top solo solenoid valve located off to the side of the circulation pump. It's most likely jammed in the engaged position. You will have to uninstall the dishwasher, lay it on its left side and remove the bottom panel to access it.

Miele Dishwasher G892SCU Plus Intake/Drain light keep flashing

Hello RD,
Every Miele dishwasher is designed to drain water in the first 30 seconds of any cycle. Does your intake/drain light come on at all? Miele technical services can troubleshoot the fault code if you do get an intake/drain light.
The most common issue I have seen is that the dishwasher drain line is clogged.
Solution - Try checking the airgap at the top of your sink, if nothing there then check the end of the drain line usually connected to the garbage disposal if you have one. I would reccomend disconnecting the end of the drain line and putting it into a bucket. Let the dishwasher run for 30 seconds and if it drains then its a problem with your garbage disposal. If not I would contact Miele technical support to troubleshoot the fault code

Good luck

Miele Dishwasher door release problem

I switched the dishwasher off at the mains and then back on again. At this point the plastic arm started making a noise like it was trying to retract so I pulled the door to help it along. The door opened and the arm fully retracted - much to my relief.
