Question about Dishwashers

Miele G868 Dishwasher is dead, won't even turn on

My dishwasher was working perfectly fine until a few days ago it just wouldn't turn on. We checked the breakers, the plugs & even took out & cleaned the filters.
Called Miele but with the cost of their service calls + parts and the fact that this dishwasher was manufactured in '97 (I think), it might be cheaper to just buy a new (less expensive) dishwasher.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I had a similar problem. Check the control knob that turns the machine on. At this age, it sounds like the control knob is either bad or a wire has burned off. Check to see if their is an internal fuse in the washer.

Bosch Dishwasher drain mechanism starts itself a few hours after a completed cycle and won't stop. I reset the dishwasher, but it remains unusable for a few days. If I turn on the dishwasher, th


this could mean there is water leak and it collects at the base of the dishwasher leading to moisture detection circuit tripping. when you leave it for a few days the water dries up and trip is removed. check door seals for leak most likely at the base of the door. turn power off when working on dishwasher.

Hello. My dishwasher (Miele G 579 SC) does not fill water enough. When filling is done I must fill manually with a bucket to get water to a sufficient level. What might be the problem? Kind regards...


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Miele G868 built-in dishwasher water inlet problem


Pull of the program knob. Then you should find a water-intake-time-selector to the right of the axis. Take a screwdriver and turn it slightly counter clockwise one click to increase the time and vice versa.

Here's the manual:

Hi,

I figured it out my self. I have to say however I am a bit disappointed in your web site. It seems to me that if you need any help you need to pay for it so I guess I will stick with the other trouble shooting sites I work with now which are free. If anyone wants to know how I replaced the detergent dispenser on my Miele G868 U (part cost 158 saved 265 in installation / tech charges) just post me a message and I will tell you how it is done (No Charge). This trouble is closed fixed by my self

Cheers,
Mitch
