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

Open Question

Miele G665SC does not stop taking water, causing flood

The fault happened last night flooding the kitchen overnight. now the mashine is constantly running the drainage pump (water in the bottom of the mashin). However I have noticed that the water is sipping slowly from the water inlet on the right hand side. If left for an hour or so it starts overflowing int othe kitchen. It looks like some valve does not cut off the supply. I have disconnected the water inlet house for the time being while I investigate.

SOURCE: Miele G638 dishwasher.

Hi John I have the same problem, the manual says that it is because the water level is to low, this is checked by opening the door after the machine has stopped filling and before it starts to wash, the level should be 4mm above the main plastic filter ring, the level has two settings, these can be adjusted by pressing the start button and the On/Off button at the same time, release the start button and turn the control to economy 45,if the start light does not come on the level is set to normal, to increase level press the start button again and the light should come on, this will give you an increased filling time. it did no help me but it may help you. good luck

SOURCE: Miele Touchtronic G892 SC Water leak at base of door

check the rubber seal around the door to see if its torn or smashed. if it is replace it, could someone have set somthing heavy on the door while it was open that would have stressed the hinges. it is most likely one of these problems take a nail file and slid it gently between the door and the body of the dishwasher if it slides in easy where it leaks you know the seal is bad and replace it.

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: dishwasher stops after 10 minutes inlet/drain light flashing

I had the same problem on a 5 year old model. It was the main pump leaking from a perished seal causing the water protection microswitch to trip. This gives the symptoms you describe exactly. Parts cost from Miele was about £60 for a new seal. Fairly easy to fit.

My defy front loader filled up with water at 2am last night while not in use...flooding my kitchen. the machine tap is always left open, but is active only when the machine has been switched on???


the water inlet valve is faulty and is not closing fully when powered off causing a small but constant stream of water coming into the machine until it floods out the front, you will need to replace the water inlet valve, in the meantime turn the taps off when your not using it

Door will not open if machine not emptied immediately cycle ends


This is an anti-flood protection, since water would flood the kitchen if you could open the door. If the machine shuts down for some fault and leaves the drum with water in, then it is advisable to drain the drum down via the small hose at the front of the machine. Simply remove the plug and empty into a large container until the drum is empty. You can then start to work out why the cycle ceased prematurely.

Bosch dishwasher contiuned to flood all night...


It sounds like the float is stuck. Look for a round disk on bottom of dishwasher ( inside) Push it down and lift it up to make sure it is traveling without getting stuck. It is suppose to rise and then cut off water.

Kenmore washing machine 2 year old is now flooding my floor every 20 loads happiend 4 times. Please help.


Is the water flooding coming from the top of the washing machine?
Check the drain pipe in the back to see that it's not loose. Also, look inside the drain pipe and make sure there is no algae. Algae might cause low flow through the drain pipe and it will overflow.

Hope this helps.

Drain pump runs non-stop. Continues when dial is in Stop position. When disconnected for hours, drain pump starts immediately when power restored. In any wash cycle position, drain pump runs and cycle...


sounds like the flood switch has activated.

You will have to drag the dishwasher out from under the counter after turning off the power to it. Tilt to one side so that any water collected under it is expelled. This will free up the flood switch. Wait about 30 minutes and turn the power back on.

There could be a leak of some sorts from the door seal or hoses which is causing the water to collect.

Hope this solves the problem. It is unclear why none of the lights are lighting up to show a fault condition.

Miele W1203 washer drain and intake lights flashed together and now will not change modes. Can I reset it so that it will work again?


The flood protection device has activated. This is caused by a leak in the machine. It can also be caused if you are not careful when checking the drain pump,water may have gone back into appliance and activated flood protection device. If this is the case Tip machine forward,water in base of appliance will run out, and appliance will work. If Fault reoccurs then you have a leak.

There is no water going into the dishwasher even though the water supply is on.


This is a typical Anti Flood system activation. This system activates when water leaks onto the floor of the machiene due to a leak fault (pipe/hose clamp/ partly blocked pipe). The machiene automatically switches to pump out mode and stops water inlet. The anti flood system is a polystireen float / micro switch at the base of the machiene floor. Dry the floor and drectify the leak and it should work.

Dishwasher beeps constantly and gives fault code that the flood switch has been activated. Neither drawer will trun off. It seems the fan keeps going, and is very noisy. It worked fine last night.


Hello there:
here is some ideas that will help you clean off the flood switch thatis causing the error
first unplug the power going to the machine
If you by accident overloaded the top drawer and this will allow water to get into the base an trigger the flood switch. which causes the error that you get .
Take the bottom drawer cover off first then took the whole drawer out and gently manuevere it to where u can get into the bottom of the unit.
use a towel and dry up any visible water.
use few paper towels to get into and under tight spaces.
now Take a blow dryer and blow the in the base for about 10 minutes. once there is No visible signs of water any where
put it back together and it should work . ok
Hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards MIchael
