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

When the miele g-865 dishwasher drying cycle vent fan starts up it is very noisy. Also when the dishwasher has stopped and the door is opened, water drains from the vent fan discharge openi g onto the floor. Is there a way to fix this?

    I have the Miele G 975 Turbothermic, and have exactly the same problem. It sounds like water is getting into the fan mechanism, and when the fan starts up it gurgles until I open the door and drain the water out of the fan opening. It started happening just a couple of months after the warranty expired (typical). I contacted Miele who say they've never heard of the problem, but fo £99 would send someone out to have a look. Needless to say, I'm just living with it, but if anyone knows of a solution I'd love to hear it too.

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.

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.

In fact I just did this with mine today. 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. 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!

PS: I still have the puddle on the floor, so am trying again only 3 days later! But this has worked several times before.

Does the Miele G665 dishwashers have a heat element as no heat is coming from my dishwasher


If it like other Mieles, it has an element to heat water if required to reach cleaning temperature, but does not have a drying element. Even then, it should give off some heat in the drying cycle and be hot after finishing.

Water collects in door during drying cycle


The drain hose for the dryer fan is blocked. If you remove the outer door (six Screws three bottom screws down either side) you will see a hose that runs from the bottom of the fan to the top of the detergent dispenser, removed hose and clean this will resolve the problem

I have a Miele G 892 Dishwasher and recently the vent for the Turbotronic drying fan has been sticking in open position at the ned of the cycle. Teh result is the next cycle the vent fills with dirty water...


You'll have to take the door panel apart. There's a small drain hose between the turbothermic unit and the detergent dispenser. It's most likely clogged.

Fisher and Paykel dishwasher noisy fan


Have you got your dishwasher on an extended drying cycle?

Normally it works for about 10 minutes after the wash cycle is complete - not hours.
