SOURCE: Dishwasher fan fills with water

Well, I just took my hose out (pulled both ends off the connectors) and it was indeed full of junky cruddy muck, so blew it out over a waste bin until it ran clear through. Now I've put the hose back on and will see what happens next wash!

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: The drying vent on the front of our miele

Hi,

if you remove the door panel you will see a small hose from the fan to the combi dispener. Remove this and blow through it. Also connect it to the combi dispener and blow and then to the fan end and blow. Food and muck block the pipe and the excess water cannot escape back into the unit so instead it pours out the vent. you will find the fan is then quieter.

SOURCE: Drying cycle vent fan is noisy. How can I fix it

I had the same issue but mine is an inbuilt unit. I removed the 4 screws for the front main facia panel which was then removed. Following this I removed the 6 screws that hold the plastic control cover in place and then the three screws (1 top centre and 1 on left and right) that holds the control plate which I then gentrly lowered.

I then used a flat blade screw driver to turn the inside fan cover anti clockwise about 45 degrees which allows the fan module to be removed. Then disconnected the drain pipe at the fan module only and power and control cables.

I then blew the gunk out of the fan module and gave this a good wash through with hot water to ensure it was clean and then dryed with paper towel. I then also blew out the drain pipe. The remaining gunk was blown into the interior of the dish washer out a vent just below the rinse aid unit.

If I need to do this again then I would have removed both ends of the pipe and washed this through with hot soapy water to make sure it was clean.

To reassemble do the reverse process. Assistance will probably be required to reassemble the front main facia panel as one person would need two hands to hold in place and another to locate and start the screws. A couple of clamps could over come this.

You have the Miele problem.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is a stupid problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.
In fact I just did this with mine today. The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk.muck and slop.

Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!

Try powering off the machine using the main power switch for at least 10 seconds, then power back after holding down the top solo and start/stop simultaneously.

You may need to check the drainage pipe and water inlet for blockages. Under the filter inside, you can remove part of the drainage system by removing the silver clip and pulling on the plastic segment.

Wash this through, it has a lovely ball bearing inside, but don spend too long wondering how big it is. Big it is.

Check the tubes, for kinks etc... Always disconnect the water supply before detaching the inlet, and be prepared for a mess, if you do decide to remove the drainage outlet pipe.

The fan during the drying cycle makes a scratching noise


There could be water stuck inside the fan because the drain tube that runs into the combination dispenser is clogged. If this is the case the door would have to be removed in order to gain access the the hose. If you have a custom panel that will have to be removed first by opening the torx 20 screws on the upper right and left side (the screws only loosen they do not come out). After that panel has been removed you have three screws on the right and left of the door when its opened. Once these screws are removed the door panel will come off and you have access to the fan and tube. Remove the tube and clean it out; you could also stick a toothpick inside the opening of the fan where the tube connects and clean that out. If this does not help then the fan would have to be changed because a solenoid is sticking.

Our Miele dishwasher has started to make a noise when the drying cycle starts, 25 mins from the end of the programme. Sounds like a the fan bearing or, because it's pretty new, maybe it's obstructed or...


And do you get a pool of water on the floor when you open the door and the fan drains out? If so, then you have the Miele problem.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is a stupid problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.

PS: I still have the puddle on the floor, so am trying again only 3 days later! But this has worked before.

When door is opened a puddle of water comes out . Where can I get a solution


Hello,

Welcome to Fixya.

The issue is likely just the blower and housing drain hose blocked with "dirt" from time & use.

First things first...**turn off the power via the breaker at your home service panel...safety first**

Yes, you will need to take the door panel off ( watch those edges they are VERY sharp ) and unfasten the control panel as well, the screw`s are around the perimeter of the door facing the dishwasher tub opening.

Once you have the panel off, you will then unscrew the round part surrounding the vent fan inside the door ( it turns about 1/4 turn counter-clockwise ) the fan motor assembly can be pulled off the door and cleaned out.

You should now remove the small rubber drain line from the fan to the tub which is routed inside the door panel & clean it out as it too gets plugged hence, not allowing the condensation to run back into the tub to be pumped out so when you open the door it pours onto your floor.

Hope you find that helpful. Let me know how you make out or if you require further assistance.

Good luck.

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

Mold in the rinse aid compartment.


You should check your pump located in the back of the machine to make sure that it is pumping water out. Also see why the fan is making noise and replace the fan. Also check your hot water supply. Mold wont grow if the water is the temperature it is supposed to be and seems like youa re just washing with warm water or even cold

it is the "FAN" inside the door, i had that problem too.
if it leaks after you open it when it stops and the door is on the ground.
You can open up the front and clean the black small tube witch comes from the fan on the left upper side (if you're in front of the machine) and down to the magnet opened valve.
On my Machine i replaced the tube with a new one as you don't get everything out.
