Question about Miele G880 Dishwasher

Open Question

All the sequence lights flash simultaneously when I set to wash

Cycles. The rinse and hold is operating normally. When we try to run any of the wash selections the lights just flash yellow at us. Not lights come on in the "check" area.

I did do a filter clean and rinsed out the removable intake valve.

This dishwasher has been in service since 1996.

    Problem solved! I just got off the phone with a local repair man who talked me through the fix. Involves pushing the top solo button and turning the dial to different cycles to reset the "Heat Fault function".

    Yay!

    I had a feeling it was more of an electronic problem rather than a mechanical one.

    What he cautioned me about though is to make certain that we do not let any soapy (Dawn or Joy) dishes get in there or sponges that have liquid soap or to not wash items such as furnace filters in the dishwasher. This can cause a sensor to go off and overheat the machine setting off this fault.

    It was a pretty easy fix, but unless you are a tech with a manual in front of you, it is a challenge for the everyday homeowner.

You will more that likely have a faulty waterproof inlet system

My guess is that the foil that the buttons are mounted to is defective.  The control module "reads" the buttons that are pushed by the fact that the resistance between two pins on the circuitboard becomes zero ie. your pushing the button shorts out two pins.  the foil could have moistire damage or the resiistance of the tracks could be too high.  Solution for both would be to replace the control panel button foil.

SOURCE: MY G892SCUPLUS MIELO DISHWASHER LIGHTS AND CYCLES ARE STUCK.

The rinse aid light means you are out of rinse aid. The salt light means you have to add salt to your built in water softener. If the drain/intake light is on, that is when you have a problem. It will flash when there is a problem. You have to count the flashes and that will tell you what the error is.

SOURCE: My dishwasher is making a humming sound and does not rinse?

A humming sound can be a failing wash motor (that drives the water pump) or it can be as simple as a blockage in the the pump area beneath the lower spray arm, under the filter.
Remove the spray arm and the filter top (screws will need to be removed)
Use a flashlight and inspect all over the sump area for debris that is blocking/jamming the impeller area. Reasemble and test with a short cycle.
If the dishwasher continues to make the same humming, it is time to replace the wash pump.
Good Luck! Post back here if you would like more guidance.

SOURCE: put rinse liquid detergent in dishwasher rinse aid compartment.

I did the same thing with my Maytag dishwasher, several times actually, before realizing I was putting blue dish soap in the rinse aid compartment which then wouldn't empty. Then my Maytag started making ominous noises during the rinse cycle (appliance guy said it was "cavitation" noise).

Appliance guy wanted to replace the whole detergent/rinse aid compartment but since he told me the noise was probably caused by the dish soap stuck in the rinse aid compartment, I decided to try to get rid of it first. Here is the method that worked for me; it took most of a day but saved me parts & labor:

1. Get some white vinegar--I used nearly a quart.
2. Fill the rinse aid compartment to brim with the vinegar (overfill) but don't put cap on
3. Raise the dishwasher door slowly until the vinegar drains into the lower part of the chamber (at least this is how my Maytag worked)
4. Agitate the contents as best you can by rapidly shaking the dishwasher door up & down.
5. I also used a small plastic medicine dropper jammed into small openings on each side of the rinse aid compartment to agitate the vinegar by squeezing air into them.
6. Drain the compartment by closing the dishwasher door (move it to full vertical)--vinegar will drain into the bottom of the dishwasher.
7. Repeat above steps a couple times, then fill again w/vinegar, put the cap on and let it stand for awhile. Then drain and repeat the whole routine several times.
8. Blue-colored vinegar will come out which is a good sign (or whatever color your dish soap was).
9. After awhile, I started pouring generous amts of very hot tap water thru the rinse aid compartment, alternating with white vinegar. (No reason you can't use hot vinegar also.)
10. Eventually, all the blue stuff came out & the see-thru levels of the rinse aid compartment were completely clear/empty.
11. Run the dishwasher (I decided to not put any rinse aid in). I got some overfoaming (from the washed out soap) the first time I ran it which I probably could have remedied by adding more vinegar & possibly salt, but the noises were gone!
I just ran the cleaned out dishwasher a 2nd time & it was back to its quiet self with no overfoaming.

Takes some patience but hey, beats a big repair bill!!

'low rinse' stuck on with full rinse aid, can't start wash cycle


Actually, if you look closely at that Low Rinse button or emblem, you will see a little lock symbol above the words "Low Rinse", and I'll bet THAT light is the one that is on. Basically, you have the control lock (or child-lock) turned on. To turn it off, you have to press and hold the Sanitize button for 3 to 5 seconds until that light goes off. Now your dishwasher will work!

The hobart lxih is stuck in delime.


To reset or clear delime message, on control board there are 3 buttons. from power off, drawer open, manget on door switch, door closed, hold PROG on board and press the ON key on keyboard. pressing select moves to next poption, up arrow increases setting. step through select until you see delime, settings for LXi are de for disabled, and 1 through 65= x100 cycles. rg if set at 5, after 500 cycles the message apears. To keep the settings and clear the message a delime sequence needs to be run precisely as described.

DO NOT MIX DELIME ACID, RINSE AGENTS OR OTHER ACID WITH BLEACH PRODUCTS, OR HAZAEDOUS GASES WILL FORM.

With machine off, remove rack , close door, press and hold wash/delime key and press ON. Delime will be lit on display, release wash/delime key, and let machine fill. you should then see ADD and DELIME on the display, open the door and add the delime agent following supplier's instructions precisely. close the door, press wash, delime will flash. After delime is complete power is turned off. Inspect the machine and repeat if necessary.
DO NOT LEAVE THE ACID IN ANY LONGER THAN RECOMMEDED.

Clean light flashes 7 times


try doing button setting change from "Hi-Temp Wash - Normal - Hi-Temp Wash - Normal" sequence of button selections. This must occur within 6 seconds and initiates an internal diagnosis of the machine.
The process runs for about 19 min. and shuts off
During the process several LED's light up and several funtions start and stop.
If the machine has no broken systems, you should be able to open the door add some soap and the usual dirty dishes and carry on with normal operation. this is the method to reset the machine.
Most likely is that there were suds in the last cycle or the door doesn't close smoothly.

Intermittent problem, unable to select normal wash cycle/start


restart curcuit board sequence

push start hold down air dry and start until lights blink and machine starts then it should work normal

most dishwashers have an instruction booklet behind the botton panel that is nearest the floor you wll have to remove the panel it has a couple of screws. the booklet should be there unless installer took it.
If you omly replaced the front panel board then you may have to replace the circuit board inside the door. It works like a mother board in a computer. Good luck

Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher - Blinking Quick Rinse Light


I had the same flashing light problem first the normal wash flashing light then the others. I tried shuting of the breakers but nothing. I tried resetting the panel by pushing normal wash and heated dry simultaneously and nothing. So I took the six screws holding the front panel out and unplugged the ribbon type wires and plug and unplugged it several times to help make a better contact and I was able to get it to work right away. This may not work for all but I worked for me. It is very easy to do and it's worth a try if you're having the same problem. It took me less then 10 minutes.
