Question about Miele Touchtronic G892 Built-in Dishwasher
Machine is only 2 years old. Water isn't heating up and cycle continues for over 5 hours then dishes aren't clean. Had a lot of high pressure are in the line after changing out the home water heater, but don't see any conection there. The machine we have is a G892 SC and has its own heating element also. Any advise is appreciated.
Could be heater pressure switch

Miele have cold inlet only. Either element is open circuit, or the relay that switches the element has failed. My money would be on the element first, then the relay. The machine will sit in that mode forever as it is waiting for the temperature of the water to reach a certain temp before telling the electronic unit to move to the next part of the wash. If you need assistance in how to test & how to get to these parts just let me know. But you will need an ohm meter to test the element. Regards

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.

Tips for a great answer:
Thanks for using FixYa. If the cycle doesn't
complete, then the first thing that should be checked is the Timer and then the
heating element. Timers don't often fail. But if every other part of the
dishwasher seems to be working properly and the timer knob seems to be stuck in
one place--doing one function continuously--the timer may be at fault.
Dishwasher timers can't be repaired. If yours is defective, replace it. Many
dishwashers heat the wash and/or rinse water to a higher temperature, as the
cycle calls for it. In these cycles, the dishwasher pauses after it has filled
with water, waiting for the water to reach the pre-set temperature. What
happens next depends, as follows: On some units, the pause is timed and the
unit continues after the allotted time. On others, the cycle can't continue
until the water reaches the higher temperature. If you have this type of
dishwasher and the water isn't being heated (say, because of a problem with the
heating element or thermostat), after the unit stops at the heating cycle, it
never continues. When you repair the heating-system problem, the "cycle
problem" is fixed too. Please accept the solution if the
issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
