Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Miele heating element

I have the above dishwashing machine and need a new heating element and have been checking out new/used elements for sale on the web. There seems to be at least three different elements for the G590SC listed as follows: 1) Element (referred to as the "Outermost Heating Element") - 2000W/230V. 2) Element (referred to as the "Innermost Heating Element"- 2400W/400V dishwasher. 3) 2700W element. In my case, the heating element I need to replace is at the bottom of the dishwasher. It runs around the bottom of the machine underneath the spinning water sprayer. If it helps, I live in Toronto, Canada so maybe the electric specs are relevant. How do I know which element suits my dishwasher? Could you please let me know. Thanks,

    Thanks. Just to be clear though, my element is burnt and you can see the burnout right on the element. The repairman told me this is why the machine won't stop running as it gets stuck somewhere in the cycle. My user manual states the power supply as 120V, 60 Hz, 1-phase, the rated load is 1.5 kW and the fuse rating is 15A. My question is which replacement element (and maybe there is more than one) will fix this problem? Thanks again.

    Thanks for the manual. I have been searching like mad to find someone in NA who would have spare Miele parts, but am incredibly frustrated because I can't seem to find anyone. I am sure this cannot be the case, however. Any advice as to where to go? Somebody must be collecting parts! Thanks,

Sorry - may seem odd - but your hot water tank is set to 120 or higher yes ? so why are you re-heating you water? - if you want to know you need the 2000w /230v - but really turn the re heat off - at 120 you kill the bacteria and will save $$

SOURCE: Miele G661 Dishwasher heating element

Loosen element-retaining bolt plus clips in dishwash chamber. Upend machine and take base off (held by four crosshead screws). Disconnect spade connectors from end of element and gently tap/push old rubber block through. Element will drop out with retaining rubber.

SOURCE: Miele dishwasher not heating

hi,

you would have to turn the unit on it's side and remove the bottom plate and check with a multi meter the resistance of the heating element to see if the heating element is defective. i doubt the dishwashing liquid caused a fault other than causing the unit to over sud and spill water into the base. You could remove the panel under the door and have a look and see if you have flooded the base. if you have a float switch in the base (white polystyrene disc and switch) this will stop the unit from working as well. dry up any water and try it again. hope this helps and don't use the dishwashing liquid in the unit.

Does the Miele G665 dishwashers have a heat element as no heat is coming from my dishwasher


If it like other Mieles, it has an element to heat water if required to reach cleaning temperature, but does not have a drying element. Even then, it should give off some heat in the drying cycle and be hot after finishing.

Miele G892 SC dishwasher not heating/cycle won't stop


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
