Water runs after unit is shut off and door is open

Water trickles out continuously out of the inside rubber gasket hole. It seems to be only hot water. I have to run the cycle through again a couple times to get it to stop. There are no error codes since the cycle is completly through and the door is open.

It could be 1 of 2 things either your water valve is going bad or the screens on the back were the hoses connect are dirty.

The power will not shut off

Usually in a miele dishwasher when the power does not shut off this is due to a leak condition in which the pump is trying to pump any access water due to a leak out of the unit in which the drain pump of the unit will run continueously to avoid water to come out of the sealed bottom and spill all over your floor. One of the first things that would distinguish if this were the case in your unit, would be if you could hear the drain pump running. This can also happen if you have a clog either in the drain pump or in the drain line or in the port hole where the drain pushes the water into your disposal. If you do not hear the drain pump running. As to the door latch it basicly tells the control that the door is either opened and not to turn on the cycle or closed and then to turn on the cycle and begin to wash. You can also check to assure that you have no leaks by pulling the unit out by deinstalling the unit and removeing the bottom base panel to see if there is any water inside. If you find there is no water and no clogs and you do not hear the drain pump working message me back for further diagnosis. I await your reply.
Thank you

The loading door gasket-- the big rubber liner doesn't drain

Some front loaders have a door boot drain hole, most do not and it is normal for some water to accumulate at bottom of boot. To help with mold and mildew use a washing machine cleaning solution, follow directions. Also a bleach solution of 2 parts water 1 part bleach sprayed on area helps. If mildew is really bad, nothing will completly remove it. Make sure you use only a high efficiency detergent.

Toto flapper seems ok but toilet keeps slow trickle into the bowl

The water inlet valve should close completely and stop water from coming into the tank before the water level reaches the "small tube." (This is the overflow tube.)

There may be an o-ring or rubber gasket inside the valve that can be replaced. If not, you would have to replace the water inlet valve.

Water in Passenger footwell

Tracking water leakage in cars is often not easy. However, in your case, I would start with the windshield. Was it recently replaced? If so, the seal might not be fine. Check the windshield rubber trim cover that runs around the top and bottom of the windshield to see if it is coming off from the frame of the car. It doesn't take much for water to get behind it if it is even slightly up.

While you are doing that, check around the top of the door frame. Many a time, water will travel down the contour of the door by the hinges and enter the footwell area if the rubber gasket has been compromised in any way.

Finally, check to make sure that the firewall of the vehicle does not have any rusted hole or improperly installed rubber bushing or gasket on the firewall that could allow water to run along any wires or cables there and trickle into the vehicle. I hope I have been able to help you with this problem. Good luck.

Tub filling with water after cycle is finshed

If your washer fills with water, usually slowly, after the cycle is over you have a inlet water valve which is not shutting off completely. LG usually uses a separate valve for the hot and cold. If you turn off the valve where the hose comes from the house and observe for continued water fill, first one, the reopen it, then shut off the other you should be able to see which (hot or cold) is the culprit. If you post your exact model number I should be able to list the part numbers for you. The inlet valves I am speaking of are the part where the hoses connect onto your machine.
