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

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.

Mold grows on dishes in bosch dishwasher


Put a bowl filled with 2 cups of clorox on the lower rack and run a wash cycle (nothing else in the machine) this will kill the mold spores in the machine, and clear the smell.

Mold growing on dishes


Recommend that you run another cycle with no DW soap aded, waiting until the dishwasher has filled with hot water and begins to do the first wash cycle. Then add 1/2 cup of bleach to the water and close the door. Allow the cycle to finish. Run it normally with a standard load of dirty dishes. Note: These high efficiency dishwashers count on the "dirt" of the dirty dishes to help wash/clean the dishes. Recommend you not rinse/wash the dishes before you put them in the dishwasher.

Watch for any occurrence of the black dots and repeat the bleach treatment.
