Question about Miele 24 in. G656SCi Plus SS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher opening Due to a kitchen remodel with a slanting floor, I have a dishwasher opening that is only 33.5 inches high at the front where the new tile stops. Most dishwashers say they need 33 7/8" but Boshe and Jenn-Air seem to fit maybe. Any thoughts?

Is vinyl floor tile strong enough for wheelchair...I am always in the kitchen, cooking

No- It may work for awhile but the wheels on the chair will cut into the tile. If the wheels are thick- over 2 inches thick and are tire type it would help. Try it out - if you see ridges on the tile- Stop- the tile is too soft.

Novalis - misshapen, mismeasured, debris on back of tile, broken edges, stuck to...

This is one flaw of MANY manufacturer's boo boos that I dealt with, and I am less than pleased given the price I paid for this Novalis flooring. They will be receiving a letter, as I have already written the major box store, Lowes.

I was excited when I opened the boxes, already had my chalk lines down, assistance with me, and began laying the tiles out in the correct direction. My mother, my assistance, began peeling the backs, and lying the tile into the lines. The first half of the box went smoothly, until it didn't. The tiles began to vary in size & shape, my mother mentioned it in a concerned tone. I looked through the rest of that box to find broken corners & more variance of sizes and shapes. Given I live an hour from Lowes, I called to ask if they had any more of the tiles I had, they did not have any, nor could they get any.

Being we were in the midst of the install coupled with being an uncontrolled Epileptic who cannot drive meant we were stuck with what we had. So, we decided to go ahead and open the other seven boxes of tile to see if it were just a fluke; it was NOT a fluke. So, we picked and chose the best tiles possible from the seven boxes. We then installed those tiles in the center of the room, leaving the jacked up tiles for cuts and along the walls where they would hopefully draw less attention. Sadly, we did NOT have enough tiles to complete the center of the room, given there were THAT many tiles with foibles which were not able to be ignored. We finished the install, while we managed the installation process without issue, the tiles are ANYTHING but up to par.

There are so very many problems with this entire ordeal in installing these tiles. I don't like the fact that I bought this with my "nest egg" money, I scrimped & saved specifically for this remodel. Only to open the tiles I paid so much to purchase, to find they were absolutely screw-balled with foibles. The tiles were NOT square aka misshapen & mis-measured tiles, beneath the paper debris was stuck to the glue on the back of the tiles, broken edges that were still inside the unopened boxes that were heavily padded, and some tiles were even glued to one another, when carefully separated you learned that one was broken. How this tile in the attached photo ended up getting wood embedded in it's front, I have no idea?

I am UNHAPPY. I would rather have purchased American, paid more for them, and cut corners somewhere else in my remodel insuring my floor looked perfect! We worked too hard to have it turn out as it did. Live & Learn!

Hello Mkoffice, this a very common problem when floors are installed in front of cabinets and not underthe cabinets. it also causes a problem for the dishwasher. it will become trapped or cant be installed.If you dont want to removed cabinets to install the tile. you will need to raise the cabinet height. my shop has run into this before. We add 1 inch tall strips of wood across the entire front edge of the cabinets. the same is done to the back wall and any area where two cabinets sides meet. we dont use full sheet of ply wood because the granite installers will need access into the top of the cabinets to level the counters. The wood type should match the cabinet.( at least in the front) it will have to be stained or painted.
Hope this helps

My dishwasher was installed, then wood floors added and now the height is only 33 inches. How do I get the old one out and find a new dishwasher that is 33-33 1/4 inches tall?

Take a sawzall and cut the front legs, pull the dishwasher out until the back legs hit the new wood floor and then cut those legs from the sides. It's your old dishwasher anyway, so who cares if the legs are cut off?

Hi I moved in to a recently renovated home one year ago. The kitchen had new ceramic tiles installed, with sanded grouted filled in the 5/8 inch joints. I sealed the grout after moving in as I was told...

I have a similar problem. My builder used dimensional lumber for the joists. I asked him if thet would be sufficiently stiff for tile floors, and he said yes. Then after the cracks started, I asked him why the cracks, but he said he didn't know why. It's not necessarily the subfloor but the combination of joists, subfloor, and concrete backer boards under the tile. If you can access the joists under the floor, perhaps you can reinforce them with additional joists or stiffeners before regrouting.
As for me, I have done neither so far. Wife has not complained, so I spend my spare time helping people on FixYa. Like you, I fear regrouting will just lead to recracking, and I no longer have access to the joists. :o(

Door rubs on new tile floor. How do I fix this.

The best way to solve this is to remove the door and re-install it at the desired height. Last resort - cut jambs off, raise the threshold. cut the top off the door, reblock it and move it up in the jamb. Yes, I have done this before, when there was no room to raise the door. I managed a door shop and we cut and reblocked many steel doors at the top. I like to use construction adhesive to hold the block.

Remodeled kithen; when dishwasher reinstalled, water backs up

OK, I have made this error before.
When you install a new garbage disposal, it comes with a "plug" that fills the hole of the little pipe that the dishwasher drain hose connects to (if there is a dishwasher.)
Remove that plug (see instructions for the disposal) and you should be all set.
Also, if you ever get the chance, consider installing a dishwasher AirGap valve between your dishwasher and garbage disposal. They are almost free at any hardware store.
Good Luck! Please report back with what you find.
