Question about Miele 24 in. G646SC Plus Free-Standing Dishwasher

Mold in the rinse aid compartment.

I love my dishwasher, but noticed black mold in rinse aid compartment. I cleaned it out but would like to avoid this happening again. It's gross and definitely not normal. Also, my vent fan makes an annoying noise and water drains from the vent when we open the door to take out clean dishes.

You should check your pump located in the back of the machine to make sure that it is pumping water out. Also see why the fan is making noise and replace the fan. Also check your hot water supply. Mold wont grow if the water is the temperature it is supposed to be and seems like youa re just washing with warm water or even cold

How much salt goes in dish washer


You don't put salt in a dishwasher unless you want to ruin it.

2. You ONLY use a detergent specifically for dishwasher use as the cleaning agent and you 3/4 fill the soap dispenser in the washer (normally fitted into the door on the inside) with the dishwasher powder.

3. If there is a separate small compartment in your dish washer for a "rinse aid" solution to be used, you can use a rinse aid product designed for dishwasher use only. If there is no rinse aid compartment (this is also normally fitted to the inside of the door - if fitted on your machine) then you cannot use a rinse aid in your washer.

4. Don't use any other product in the dish washer.

Rinse agent (blue liquid) is leaking into the bottom of the dishwasher compartment. Every time I refill, it leaks out within a few days. Any idea what is causing this?


There is a lot of info missing like brand and model, but it a general way they all work the same. A preset amount is dispensed in the last rinse cycle by an electric circuit. Sense this appears to leak the entire amount the valve/ opening is not shutting. A repairman would just replace the rinse aid dispenser assembly. They are hard to clean because the are a molded/sealed assembly.

Mildew in washer


Hi Meredith, this is AP!

I understand you are struggling with mold spreading in your Frigidaire dishwasher, model PLD2560LCC. The average useful life of a dishwasher is about 13 years, so I would attempt to get a few more years from the dishwasher if you can. Chlorine bleach kills mold and helps remove most mildew stains. Dilute 1 cup of bleach in a gallon of water and scrub the interior of the machine with a stiff brush. Use a toothbrush to get in narrow areas, such as around door gaskets. Wear gloves to protect your hands when you use bleach, and also avoid mixing bleach with any other cleaning product. Run the dishwasher empty after cleaning it to rinse out the bleach residue. If stains remain after mold removal, scrub them away gently with a damp rag and mild scouring powder.

Or you could run a cycle with no dishes. Once the dishwasher has completed its initial fill, add 1 cup of white vinegar and complete the cycle. If you find that removes the mold I would open the dishwasher door after each use and allow it to dry out completely before closing it to prevent mold growth. Moisture, bits of food and a warm environment can lead to unwanted mold growth. If you won't be using the dishwasher for a while, such as when leaving for vacation, leave the door open while you are gone to ensure no trapped moisture leads to a mold or mildew problem.

I hope this information proves helpful to you, thank you for the post.

Thanks,

Dishes are not completely dried when done, and there is mold in the silver ware baskets


Are you using rinse aid agent in the rinse aid dispenser?? All manufacturers now require it to properly dry the dishes to meet energy efficiency.
Are you making sure that there is hot water at the faucet closest to the dishwasher before turning on the dishwasher?? If you start the dishwasher and it runs cold water, the is a chance for bacteria to build up inside the dishwasher.
Hope this helps.

Soap residue on glasses, dishes & flatware...what can I do..I use Cascade & JetDry


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Vinegar or lemon juice
  • Gel dishwasher detergent
  1. dishwashers have a rinse aid dispenser. If your dishwasher has this dispenser, fill it up periodically and it will release the appropriate amount of rinse aid automatically at the right time during the wash cycle. This will help your dishes rinse more cleanly.
  2. Rinse aid in solid form
    Some older dishwashers or basic models do not have an automatic rinse aid dispenser. In this case, you can buy rinse aid in solid form that attaches to your dishwasher rack. Solid rinse aid can be hard to find in stores because it is not commonly used, but it can be purchased online.
  3. Vinegar or lemon juice
    Appliance repairmen will tell you that one of the common problems they see with dishwashers is the buildup of excess detergent. If there is too much detergent in your dishwasher, your dishes will not rinse cleanly, no matter how good the dishwasher is or how much rinse aid you use. To clean the excess detergent that has built up inside your dishwasher, put 3 tablespoons of vinegar or lemon juice (concentrate is fine) in the empty dishwasher and run the dishwasher through a complete cycle with no dishes. Do this twice, for two complete cycles of the empty dishwasher with only vinegar or lemon juice added. The acid in the vinegar or lemon juice will break up the detergent that has built up in your dishwasher's interior.

    After you have cleaned the detergent buildup from the inside of your dishwasher, follow the steps below to keep the buildup from happening again and to help your dishes rinse cleanly and prevent residue from accumulating on the dishes.
  4. Gel dishwasher detergent
    Switch to a liquid or gel dishwasher detergent. Any brand will do.
  5. Fill one compartment half full Dishwashers will effectively clean dishes with much less detergent than manufacturers often recommend. The bleach in the detergent, combined with the extremely hot water used in the dishwasher wash cycle, will clean and sanitize your dishes completely, even in small amounts, and using less detergent helps prevent buildup and residue from accumulating on your clean dishes.

    Fill only one detergent compartment(the one that snaps closed) half full with gel detergent. Snap the opening closed and run your dishwasher as you normally would. Your dishes will come out sparkling clean with no buildup or residue, plus you'll save money by using less detergent!

My dishwasher is leaving a white thick film on my dishes.


Check your inlet water quality. If hardness is noticed add salt as per the directions of the manufacturer. Refer user manual.

Check the rinse aid compartment and fill it with rinse aid as recommended by the manufacturer.

My dishwasher is not completly draining, theres standing water and around the door edges there is black mold like sustance?


I had a similar problem. Clean out the drain - you'll have to remove some sort of screen - & replace the impeller. In mine it was an inexpensive plastic part. Once your dishwasher is draining you should remove any mold. Try vinegar or dishwasher detergent & a brush; avoid anything toxic or damaging to the inside & gaskets.
