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: Miele Touchtronic G892 SC Water leak at base of door

check the rubber seal around the door to see if its torn or smashed. if it is replace it, could someone have set somthing heavy on the door while it was open that would have stressed the hinges. it is most likely one of these problems take a nail file and slid it gently between the door and the body of the dishwasher if it slides in easy where it leaks you know the seal is bad and replace it.

SOURCE: Drain Hose Replacement

drain hoses are quite standard. the rubber spigot at each end can be different sizes and some have a right angle bend at the end. suggest you take out the old hose and take it along to match up - easiest way

SOURCE: leaking dishwasher

If your dishwasher leaks, check these:Main tub seal
Door gasket or seal
Water-inlet valve
Hoses

Main tub seal
Note… If the main motor of your dishwasher is mounted vertically, beneath the center bottom of the dishwasher, the following instructions probably apply to you. But if your motor is mounted horizontally, the pump isn't serviceable--you need to replace the entire pump and motor assembly.

The main tub seal is beneath the drain impeller. It prevents the water in the dishwasher from leaking out near the shaft of the motor. To get to the seal, which is inside the dishwasher, remove the:

1. Lower rack
2. Spray arm
3. Spray arm support
4. Wash/drain impellers


Then pry the seal out of its housing and replace it.


Door gasket or seal
Over time, door gaskets and seals harden and lose their ability to seal properly. You can't repair the seals. You need to replace them if they've begun to leak. 


Water-inlet valve
The water-inlet valve, itself, seldom leaks. But, the water-supply line from the house and the rubber tube leading from the valve to the inside of the dishwasher may leak. Tighten or repair/replace these as necessary.

The water-inlet valve could mechanically stick open. When that happens, the water continues to flow into the dishwasher, which then floods your kitchen. Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher, and replace the valve.

Hoses
Behind the lower access panel on your dishwasher are several rubber or plastic hoses. If the leak appears at a connection, try a new clamp. If that doesn't work, replace the hose.
thanks for using FixYa

SOURCE: Water leaking from under the machine (Miele G638 Plus) dishwasher

The salt tank is a pathetic piece of ****. The plastic cracks and leaks into the bottom tray, which in turn sets off the safety switch.
Follow the attaching hoses and bypass the salt tank unless you really need it. This will save you around $250 for a salt tank and $300 labour for callout and repair.

My Miele washing machine has leaked everywhere, it said waterproof failure and now there is a tech fault code F224.


This leak should have filled the bottom tray and tripped the float level switch, this shutting down the machine. Once everything is dried up, you need to find out where the leakage is from. This really means removing the front door assembly in order to view the hoses and drain pump for instance. Without knowing the machine I cannot add more detail but you will need to investigate further. The leak should have switched off the electrical supply to the machine via the solenoid operated water inlet valve that is the anti-flood system. If this has not operated then it suggests that the water supply to the unit has caused the flood.

I HAVE A LEAK FROM RIGHT BOTTOM OF A SAMSUNG WF448AAP/XXA-000 FROMT LOAD WASHER ONLY HAPPENS DURING RINSE CYLCE


Hello Harlan;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

Your drain hose is in the back on the right hand side. This is a rubber hose. After a time the rubber may be dry rotted and leak or become partly clogged with soap residue.

Once completing the wash cycle the soapy water may have not completely drained due to a partly clogged drain hose by the time the rinse cycle is complete flooding the washer drain pan.

You do not have water in the bottom of the washer because your pump removed it all, but at a slower rate

Ok, Lets fix this ourselves:

1.) On the bottom right front of your washed is a leveling leg.
turn the leveling leg one full turn clockwise. The right front may be pitched down, causing the drain pan level on this corner to be high. Your washer through vibration may have moved slightly. This is not going to solve the problem.

2.) Pull your washing machine out so you can see the drain hose. Run some laundry on heavy load. Observe to see if your drain hose is leaking. Your hose clamps may be loose and require tightening. If it is leaking it needs to be replaced.

3.) Even if your drain hose is not leaking it must be obstructed, flooding the bottom of your unit. This is easily replaced.

The part number for your drain hose is DC97-12534D. It cast about $24.00.

On Duet Front Loader- Error code F/H. Can see plenty of water coming in so I suspect pressure switch. Is this a common problem? I don't quite understand your pressure switch check procedure in your...


This error code F/H tells that no water entering the machine is detected during the fill step of the wash cycle. It can be due to siphoning, pressure switch not tripping or stuck in the empty position, or the water flow meter is not reading the correct water flow. Make sure that no water is draining out of the drain hose due to siphoning as water fills in and position the end of the hose to prevent such condition.

The pressure switch is stuck and not tripping if after 8 minutes the water flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it but the control has not detected the pressure switch trips. The water valves are then turned off and the error code is flashed. The error code is also flashed if after 30 seconds the water valves are turned on and no water is detected entering the machine due to sticking flow meter pinwheel or the flow meter is not positioned properly.

The flow meter is position sensitive. The pinwheel must be installed vertically. Any canter to it may cause the wheel to stick. Many times the F/H error code pops up only when HOT water passes through the flow meter. The hot water may be softening the hoses on either side of the meter, causing the flow meter to canter. Stuck or cantered pinwheel affects the flow meter's ability to read water flow accurately. Disconnect the hoses from the flow meter then blow air into the inlet to free a possible stuck pinwheel. Replace the flow meter if the pinwheel is totally stuck and cannot be freed.

Check the pressure hose for possible kinks or air leaks if the flow meter pinwheel is positioned vertically and turning freely. Kinks and air leaks in the pressure hose prevents pressure built up in the pressure switch dome and the pressure switch cannot trip. Check the pressure hose including its connections to the pressure switch and the bottom of the tub. Blow air into the pressure hose to clear possible clogs or kinks and check it for air leaks. Also blow air into the pressure switch dome to free a possible pressure switch contacts welded or stuck in the empty position. You should hear the pressure switch clicks if it is tripping. Replace the pressure switch if not tripping and the pressure hose has no kinks or air leaks.

Our he3 elite keeps over filling and stops and beeps gives error message h & f


The pressure switch has not tripped 8 minutes after the water valves are turned on and the flow meter has detected about 10.5 gallons of water entering the machine. Either the pressure switch contact is stuck in the empty position or the pressure hose has air leaks or clogs causing the pressure switch not to trip.

Disconnect power then remove the screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the machine then slide the panel rearwards and off the cabinet. Locate the pressure switch at the right side of the cabinet.

jahn27_78.jpg

Disconnect the pressure hose from the pressure switch then blow air down into the hose forcefully to clear it for clogs and check it for air leaks and kinks. Remove the pressure switch from the cabinet the do the same as for the pressure hose to possible free the stuck or welded contacts. replace the pressure hose if it has air leaks and/or the pressure switch itself if the contacts cannot be released.

I have a miele G646 dishwasher whihs has sprung a leak into the bottom tray. Have dried it up and reset float switch but the water seems to be coming from a pipe on the left hand side of the machine. i...


Hello,
It sounds like the leak is coming from the water intake hose.
The water intake house is located at the bottom sump of the dishwasher. To get to it the dishwasher has to be taken out and put on its back and the floor plan needs to come off. The intake hose runs from the inlet valve under your sink and attaches to the sump with a metal keeper. Overtime the part of the hose where the keeper is cracks (Normal wear and tear). As I recall the intake hose runs approx. $129.99 from Miele direct. It comes with an inlet valve on the hose. there is no separate or substitute hose you can use.

Good luck

Leak


Did it start to leak immediately? Or, did it start to leak as it filled about 1/3 of the way? You could have a loose air dome hose. This is the air hose that connects to the pressure switch. One end is connected to the switch and the other end is connected somewhere on the side of the wash tub near the bottom. If it came loose, this will cause a sudden leak. Check along the side of the wash tub (usually the right hand side on Kenmore) and see if the air hose is hanging free. If it is, reconnect it and your problem should be solved. Sometimes the hose will stretch over time and will not fit tightly anymore. There should be enough slack that will allow you to cut about 1/2" off the end and reattach. This will give you a more snug fit. This is about as inexpensive a fix that you can get.
