gagaweaver, couple of things you want to check here. Check the upper spray arm for any clogged holes or cracks along the edges. Position it in the 12:00 position and run the dishwasher for a little, open the door and verify that it has rotated. Make sure the water entering the dishwasher is min. 120 degrees, use a thermometer. Makes sure that there is no large pans or dishes blocking the upper spray arm from spraying onto the inner door. If all that checks out. You will have to remove the lower spray arm, filter cover and chopper cover to make sure the chopper screen is not coated or plugged up. If it is, it will prevent a good flow of water to the upper spray arm. Catriver..post back.

SOURCE: Drying problem

Hi,
As I had the same problem, I worked on my machine and found out the heater unit was not working (it is a brand new machine ! - remark : as I moved overseas, LG did not cover it with their warranty).
But back to what I did : I ran the check program (instructions can be found in the Service Manual) and verified it was sending voltage to the heater on step 36. So I checked the heater unit (in the bottom of the machine) and found it was burned or open. So I ordered a new heater assembly ($40 on eBay), replaced it myself and am completely happy with the results.
Remarks : the heater is powerful enough to heat cold water to the temperatures required (I don't have hot water in the faucet); it seems that the heater also produces heat for the drying cycle (my dishes were completely wet at the end of the cycle before, now they get completely dry). My only disappointment, mentioned by some in the forum, is that the outlet during the drying cycle is in the bottom of the door, so steam condensates into droplets on the kitchen floor. But now I get clean dishes, and this machine is amazingly silent and efficient. Good luck to you !

SOURCE: Miele dishwasher drying problem

you need to remove the front of the door.there is a small pipe from the dryer fan to the top of the detergent dispenser. tis usualy gets blocked at the fan end. also the spout from the fan. this happens if you dont rinse loose food of the items you put in the dishwasher.

SOURCE: 2 year old miele dishwasher runs without being turned on.

hi,
A F70 fault is the float switch in the base of the unit which is activated due to water in the base. you may have used too much detergent or the wrong detergent causing the unit to over sud or you have a genuine water leak. the continous running noise is the drain pump trying to remove any water.
you need to remove the bottom panel, turn the power off and dry up the water with a towel. then run it again and see if you can see a leak.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Water collects in door during drying cycle

The drain hose for the dryer fan is blocked. If you remove the outer door (six Screws three bottom screws down either side) you will see a hose that runs from the bottom of the fan to the top of the detergent dispenser, removed hose and clean this will resolve the problem

When we take the dishes out they are all wet


Choose the hottest rinse cycle first Economy cycles don't work properly Make sure you have rinse aid in the dispenser. Make sure the machine is heating properly too. An aid do drying is to open the door of the dishwasher just when the cycle finishes steam should come out and the water in the cabinet will condense to the walls and dry the dishes. some top end models do this with a push rod..... believe it or not (Miele) go to my website for a detailed explanation about drying www.appliances.cjb.net you can contact me from there too for further follow up good luck

Miele G 880 SC -- dishes not drying


Hi,

Make sure you are using rinse aid. even if you are using tablets which has rinse aid built into the tablets Miele still recommend using rinse aid liquid as well.
Make sure you have the rinse aid setting on 3ml

Plastic will not dry as well as plates as it doesn't hold the heat.

You could call out a Miele service tech if it is still under warranty and he would be able to increase the drying time through his computer.

Hope this helps.

Miele dishwasher G 1232 sc no longer dries


the problem with not drying is normally three things
1. not adding enough rinse aid to the compartment (dispenser) and adding to much soap.
ex rinse aid helps with drying,spots and cleanind the dishes. so if is none then you want get maximum cleaning.
3. make sure you run the faucet to get the hottest waster going into the machine this will make the other two do it job better because as you know you cant clean dishes properly in cold water.if this info helped please send me 4 thumbs post , thanks

My Miele dishwasher does not get the plastic refridgerator items dry


Hello Zipmap0202,
I have never found that plastic dries very well in my Miele dishwasher as well.
Check your rinse aid indicator to see if it is on. Next to the soap door there is a door you can add rinse aid to. There is also a dispensing control knob that allows you to turn the amount of rinse aid dispensed up or down. Try changing the setting and see how that works. I have done this and it has not worked well for me. I find opening the door after the cycle is done (Just cracking) it will dry plastic alot better

Once the cycle is complete (rinse, drying, end) the dishes are clean but not dry.


#1 plastic dishes cups etc will rarely completely dry
check your heater, check for continuity on the heater it should ohm out.
does the heater get hot?
are you running hot water at the sink before pushing the start button?
are you using a rinse agent such as jet dry?

My bosch dishwasher will not dry the dishes


this dw to save energy works this way- the final rinse will reach a temp of 161 F . the dishes have to absorb this heat. when the cycle is complete the dishes become a heater in themselves radiating the heat they absorbed during the final 161 F heat. If you have any tupperware or plastic dishes in the unit they will not absorb heat therefore not radiate the 161 f temp need to dry all the dishes. try to avoid plastic items and they must always have jet dry. this is the european way of conserving energy. on the old ge or whirlpool they had electric element in the bottom that would bake the dishes dry ....not these..but they do save alot of energy.. it helps right after a cycle to crack the door open release all the steam from the unit

Not Drying


I found that if the rinse agent (Jet Blue) has run out the dishes stay wet.

Dishwasher Miele G575


It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Regarding the screwdriver adjustment- This is the rinse aid dosage adjuster. To obtain the best drying results,use the selector on setting 5. When dishes show spots, set it to a higher setting. Turn lower if dishes are cloudy. Good luck!
