Miele dishwasher trips power switch

I have an old Miele dishwasher that has worked perfectly for years. However for no apparent reason it now keeps tripping the safety switch even when it's not switched on (just plugging it in is enough to trip the switch). The wiring in the house was redone professionally 2 years ago with a plug specific to the dishwashers power requirements put in place so I'm wondering is there some safety mechanism in the dishwasher that's causing the problem or is it simply just time to buy a new one.

SOURCE: dishwasher is tripping off our safety switch

It depends on what kind of test he was doing. He was probably checking the amp draw which checks how much power the whole machine was pulling. This would be the way to check the problem you have as long as he checked it with everything running, motor, heater,..etc. If you find the amp draw to be too high, then you go to individual components.

SOURCE: my dishwasher when switched on keeps throwing the trip switch

i had this probem and apparently there's a 'float switch' in the bottom of the machine. This switch is a safety cut off and when activated can not just stop the machine but trip the electrics in the house. the reason for it activating is when food clogs up the drainage bit water can not drain and fills up the bottom of the machine. this then activates the 'float switch' as a kind of safety cut off.
the way to sort it is to disconect the machine from the mains and drain and water. empty the clogged up food from the drain bit. then tip the machine back and a load of water will pour out (may need a load of towels for this bit or take the machine out the back and do it)
once this is done, plug it all back in and give it a try - works for my machine, good luck.

How to fix leak in miele dish washer g1202 svi has F70 fault and small leak into catch pan


The reason the pump keeps running when F70 fualt appears is that the water leak circuit has tripped which causes the dishwasher controller to empty the dishwasher to avoid flooding of the motor and pump area.

The sources of leaks could be many, to start with hoses and water inlet valve. If you feel you can handle such repairs then go ahead otherwise call a technician.

Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working with the dishwasher internals.

Why is it dead?


Check power at the source; there could be a tripped breaker. If power is getting to your dishwasher, there may have been sudden failure of a part, such as the heater.

My dishwasher keeps telling me F51 cannot find in the book what that means can you tell me please have cleaned all filters


On Miele F51 is pressure switch error.

The pressure switch is located in the drain system. Its function is determining if there is water inside the tub.

Trip the circuit breaker or disconnect the power cord for a couple of minutes. Inspect the drain system for blockage. The pressure switch can be tested by a technician bypassing it.

To get parts or repair service, call the number listed on the user manual.
