Question about Dishwashers
Hi, The dispenser flap on my Miele G575 dishwasher not infrequently fails to open at the correct part of the wash cycle. As a result the powerball detergent is not released and the wash needs to be repeated. Apart from that the unit works perfectly. Would a new dispenser solve the problem? Doccy D
If the water level is not adjusted at the right level
(see Miele G 575 manual page 29),
the flap doesn't open at the right circle,or doesn't open at all.
(Cause of the low water level the machine makes more noise!)
======Now shut down the power for the machine!!!=============
To adjust the water level new,you have to open the shield(2 screws) under the
main door.(enginen compartment).(You don't have to move the machine!)
On the right ,right,right,hand side,there is a 6 cm round beige plastic box.
(the first thing you see to you right and very easy access)
Only one black water hose(about 1cm=1/4inch) and a few wires are going into this box.
This is the water level adjustment box.
In the middle of the beige plastic box is a beige plastic screw
to adjust the water level new.Turning it clock vise ,increasing
the water level.
(For the right water level,see page 29 in your G575 Miele manual)
The water level hasn't to be super price.Just in about and enough.
(It seems that the rubber membrane in the water level unit ages
and therefor it has to be readjusted after a longer time)

Watch also for how you load the upper rack. The flap opens inward and the rack has an opening to permit full opening. If this is blocked by your dishes, the flap won't open properly.

It could be jammed with old and hardened dishwasher detergent which dries like cement, preventing the little door from opening up. Clean the soap dispenser area with warm water and a toothbrush, especially underneath the area where the cover springs open.

It is caused by not enough water being allowed in by the 'flood protector'. You know, that weird lump on the inlet hose at the tap.
Mine has been slowly getting worse and worse. Seems it needs good water pressure to open the flap and it can't achieve it unless the correct amount of water is in the washer.
Currently I just chuck a couple of pans of water in at the start and again at 32 minutes for the rinse.
