Question about Miele 24 in. G881SCI Built-in Dishwasher
The vent on the front of my Miele, Novo Stella, Turbo Thermic Plus, Model G 881 SCI, is filling up with water. It fills up with water when you run it and when you go to empty the dishes, it spills water all over the floor. The vent is not closing inside the front door when it is ran so still fills up with water. Can the front vent be replaced? Has anyone tried replacing the front vent or is there a way to repair it?
Hi Crytech's advice is goog but you may not need to replace the fan. To remove the top plastic front it is useful to loosen the top screws on the side as this allows the metal plate that holds the switches etc to move a little allowing the plastic front to slide off. The metal plate is held by the side screws and one under the latch, the others secure the switches and control gear. It may be worth opening the inside vent by turning it anticlockwise, it is only this that holds the fan unit if the plate is removed. In practice if you look here http://www.brandsurge.com/PDF/General%20Dishwasher%20cleaning%20and%20care.pdf you will see the cycle with the fan is more complicated than at first it would appear. I found it best to remove all of the front door cover and remove the fan unit and clean it thoroughly. There is a rubber pipe from the bottom of the unit to a control switch half way down the door. This was completely blocked. A thorough cleaning of all the components and ensuring free movement of the shutter in all three of its positions (open, half open and closed) followed by reassembly cured the problem, no cost just one cut finger from the edge of the door :) When removing screws it is advisable to save them in a way to remember their positions as some are longer than others and I had to guess where they went back. No smoke, no blown fuses just clean dishes. Good luck Shrubstick

Hi jpkenney, The vent can be replaced. If you open the door and look around the outside of the door, you will see the stainless screws that hold the top & bottom parts of the door on.( the top control section is separate to the rest of the door). Just undo the screws & there you have it. The vent can be replaced easily. Hope this helps.....goodluck.
