Question about Dishwashers

Door on my miele built in dishwasher is broken

I rent an apartment a year ago that came with an old Miele dishwasher G685sc. The spring of the door is broken (I think) and we have to prop it up with a little stool when loading. A service man just left after taking things apart and said the door will always be heavy and it couldn't be fixed. There is hot water coming out of the air vent every time we open the door after a load is finished. He said that to replace the part, it would cost 200+ euros. The conclusion is that we'd better off buying a new but cheaper machine. Is this true? If not, I will try to complain. Thank you in advance for writing back.

First thing you need to do is SEARCH for "spares"
for your Miele G685sc

We don't seem to have "parts" for your G685sc here
in the USA...

but a casual look over BOSCH hinge and spring costs
show the hinge at $20 USD

AND

SPRING at $10 to $19 US Dollars...
Lower door gasket $20 to $30 USD

AT those prices I would attempt to avoid a "new"
dishwasher... When you are done trying to get a HEATER,
silence and stainless interior...
You are looking at BIG MONEY.

Check the FIT of the door... and health of the gasket(s)....

I'm just saying... I would
(it is the ULTIMATE in recycling).

SOURCE: Miele G868 dishwasher - leaks from front panel air vent

Hi all,

I have had the same problem. Here is what I've done. Take the door apart (a whole bunch of screws on the side of the door). The front panel will come off and you will see a rubber tube. Take it off and blow it out. Then take the blower out (you need to unscrew the inside of the blower). Take apart the blower and clean it out.

Good luck.

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

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.

G660 door falls open


Hi.

The problem is either because the spring supporting the door half way up is broken or because the spring must be adjusted.

First perform a door spring adjustment procedure as explained at page 28 in chapter 10 of the Installation Manual.

Here Miele installation manual for the G660. The file is in PDF format.

If the regulation procedure does not do the job, then the spring must be replaced.

This video shows how to replace the spring (model and manufacturer are different-operations are similar):




The spring is usually sold as part of the hinge assembly.

To get parts or to book a qualified technician call the Miele support number listed on the owners manual or use the Contact page on your local Miele website. Here UK website: Miele - Contact Us.

Regards.

The door on my miele G481 built in dishwasher won't stay open it's really annoying that it keeps popping up when I'm trying to load.


hi,

what you need to do is slack off the spring tension on the door hinges. each side of the unit at the base on the plinth there is a screw with a spring symbol next to it. turn this anti clockwise to reduce the spring tension.

Hope this helps

You could buy a no name door seal gasket from any dishwasher parts supplier but you will loose your warranty with Miele. And extended warranties reach up to 6 years if you bought it from a factory authorzed dealer with a factory authorized installion! Call Miele direct. Miele's number is 1-800-843-7231
If you would rather call your local Miele dealer, they'll be more than happy to do help you!
