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.

Why is my Miele dishwasher displaying "Open stopcock", even though water is flowing and I've cleaned the inlet filter?


There are 2 possible main causes for lack of water, given that you have checked water availability at the dishwasher.
1. The water solenoid valve in the machine is faulty or failed.
2. The motherboard in the control panel has a fault and needs replacing.
Unless you are a DIY'er I suggest you call a serviceman

Frigidair 1000 series dishwasher clean light staying on and not able to operate until I turn circuit breaker off and on.


Good Morning Edward,

I see that you are having trouble with running your Frigidaire dishwasher, model# FDB1050REC, due to the "Clean" light being stuck on. I also see that regardless of you trying to reset the appliance, it might run through one cycle and then you're back to showing the "clean" light, and not being able to clear that light. It sounds to me like your control panel is having issues and might need to be replaced. I do suggest contacting a local authorized technician to diagnose the appliance, this way you're not just purchasing random parts.

-Best Regards-

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.

Hi.

Turn off power again tripping circuit breaker or disconnecting the power cord. While power is off clean the drain well and remove any water present inside the tub using a sponge. Check also the door lock.

Connect power back and try starting a cycle.

If still no luck, let me know the appliance model number. In that case the dishwasher is probably faulty. A defective door switch or faulty control module may result in appliance not responding to commands.

Regards.

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.

Did you check the outlet with a voltmeter? If you did and have 120Volts then it sounds like your latch switch could be defective which would kill the power to the unit.

But remember that in most houses that the outlet under the sink is wired for a garbage disposal where the top outlet is controled by a switch and the bottom one is wired for the dishwasher.

Try a fan or light where the washer is plugged in. Suspect a bad power plug connection if the test works. The next suspect is a faulty microswitch connected with the door latch mechanism. You will likely need a test meter to track this down. Good luck!
