Question about Miele 24 in. G656SCi Plus SS Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

I have a Miele G575 dishwasher. I think the overflow float valve is stuck, as this was the problem last time when the drain cycle continued forever when I switched the machine on. At least that is what the service man said. I can't find the float on my machine, however, as I would like to test this before calling the repair man again. Can you tell me where the float is and how I get to it? Thanks, Rob

This sounds like the overflow trip switch has been activated. Some time back I had this problem with a Miele G664. The service man undid 4 screws on the door and removed front panel and found water in the drip tray, He then checked the pipes, outlet pipe had a pice of plastic bread tag stuck in it , this was slowing down the time it took to empty the water and the next fill made it overflow and switch off the dishwasher. He cleaned out the chanel on the overflow that was full of dust and fluff checked the levels to make sure the dishwasher was sitting true. Closed it all up and ran the dishwasher. Perfect!

Bill $160. It did take him the best part of an hour and I live a long way out of town.

No water is coming in the dishwasher. I can hear the water running, but the water is not coming into the dishwasher


If you can hear the water running - but it's not filling, you most likely have a drain problem, which is being stuck open. Usually the motor kicks in and either pumps the water through the wash arms (during wash cycle) or through the drain (during drain cycle) the switch that/or flap could be stuck on the drain and it is pumping it out the drain all the time instead of the wash arms.

Water levil to high on miele g575


It is possible that there is a block in the drain hose which prevents water from previous wash to fully empty.
This means when you start dishwasher next time it overflows and causes the dishwasher flood switch to trip and shut dishwasher.

You will need to check the drain hose for any blockages and clear it.

You said it does not progress...meaning the dial does not eventually move? it may be waiting on a water level sensor to be tripped. The dishwasher is just not filling. The water valve solenoid may be stuck or defective. or a wire may have come off the valve solenoid.

I have a miele G841 dishwasher and the saftey pan is always filling up with water and then a intake - drain error code comes up and the dishwasher will not allow water to enter for rinse until I drain...


Hi dear.If you are handy enough,that's what you can check to make a solution for yourself.Goodluck.
Check all hoses, connections and threaded unions for leaks.
Note:
If the leak source has not yet been detected, check the following areas
in the toekick and the drip pan for wear and tear:
�� Connection between the circulation pump and the sump
�� Axial face seal of the circulation pump
�� Connection between the drain pump and the sump
�� Connection between the salt container and the water intake
�� Connection between the water intake and the cabinet side wall
�� Overflow (e.g., excess foam formation)
�� Water level between the overflows (�� seating of the lower door seal?)
�� Connection between the cabinet and the salt container
�� Non-return valve in the sump (�� water running back from the drain hose?)
3. Check overflow float switch B8/3 for continuity and correct operation.
4. Carefully dry all electrical components in the drip pan area.
Cause:
Float switch defective.
Remedy:
Replace overflow float switch B8/3.
I hope that helps.Thanks.

Brand new dishwasher stops mid-way through wash cycle with soap spilled out all over the door. Can't seem to get past the wash cycle to finish the complete wash/dry cycle.


if there is no water in the bottom of machine, see if your water supply is turned off, or check for a loose wire on the water valve, lastly, check if the float is stuck in the up position. That is the overflow protector. If the machine 'thinks' the water level is too high, it will not allow more water into it. The float is in the front left corner, usually under a raised cover, remove that cover and manually raise and lower the float to allow free movement. It should be normally in the down position. Good luck.

Does anyone have a service manual for the Miele G575 dishwasher?


Check the bottom floor pan, if water is there, only the drain will operate. Sometimes the float switch, which is a styrofoam block, gets warpped and activates the switch. This turns on the drain pump which overrides everything.

Peter,

where is the water coming out at? Are you using the proper detergent? if the machine is too full of water and a fill float valve is stuck open, water sometimes overflows.

Check to make sure the fill valve is working, then check to make sure pump is operating. (you will know when you turn the machine onto the rinse cycle.)

Miele g841sc dishwasher leaks


Typically the machine only uses 5-6 quarts of water, If you're floor is getting 1 or 2 quarts check for a loosly connected intake or drain hose. I've never seen any overflow drain on a Miele. It only fills the bottom of the tub. The machine uses a logic program that continuously checks the level of fill and drain by water pressure weight so it always runs with proper amount, even if your intake pressure is weak. Now, If you add too much soap then the bubbles can carry a few ounces over a worn door seal. If the seal is damaged then more spray arm water can run down the front of the machine into the float pan. But after it gets less than a pint of water the drain float will start thr drain pump and shut-off the machine controls and alert you. It won't let you run the machine until the water ( and the problem) is gone. Call Miele for help.
