SOURCE: Dishwasher element?

dispenser is not linked that will be the solinoid valve on the dispenser. the heater could be open circuit or on the side of the wash motor is a pressure switch that is common for blocking so it will not put the heater on.

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.

Water not heating up and not drying


Hello

If your dishwasher is not heating properly, troubleshoot the issue. You can often repair this problem and eliminate service fees.

Incoming Water
Most manufacturers recommend that the water coming into your dishwasher be at least 120 degrees Fahrenheit. If the water is too cold, then your dishes don't clean properly. Or the dishwasher must run longer to heat up the water. Test the water temperature by running the hot water on your faucet for about 2 minutes or until it gets really hot. Place a waterproof thermometer under the water. If the water is too cold, increase the water temperature setting on your water heater.

Thermostat
The thermostat is responsible for regulating the water and drying cycle temperature. If this thermostat isn't working, the heating element at the base of the dishwasher tub may not come on. Test this element by selecting the hottest temperature setting. Run the dishwasher on the shortest cycle. Let the dishwasher run for a few minutes, and open it up. If the dishwasher water is not hot or the drying cycle isn't starting, order a new thermostat from a parts dealer since this component is difficult to fix.


Heating Element/Drying Fan

The heating element heats up the water and air. Access this element by removing the bottom rack. It looks like a long black rod. If any part of this component is broken or corroded, you must order a new one. You usually cannot fix this element. The drying fan is located in the main housing of the dishwasher, and it blows air around your dishes to dry them. Check this part by disconnecting the dishwasher from the power supply and opening up the housing. Examine the fan, and see if any dirt or debris is preventing it from moving. Clean it. If the fan won't turn at all or if the motor is burnt out, order a new fan since it's difficult to repair this part.

Additional Concerns

If your dishwasher isn't drying your dishes properly, see if you have selected a heated drying cycle. An air drying cycle doesn't completely dry your dishes. Never overload the dishwasher, as this prevents heat from circulating around your dishes, keeping them from drying properly. Plastic and Teflon dishes don't usually completely dry. You must towel-dry these items.

White film on dishes and still dirty.


Check rinse aid is actually dispensing - turn it up to max for a while to clear it, and check level is going down after a week.

If you suffer with hard water - your heating element may need replacing as it is probably furred up.

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.

No hot water, plates cold and dirty and wet


If you've installed it recently make sure the hot water tap was plumbed in and not the cold water tap, check the hot water tap temp in the house to make sure it's getting warm, there also should be a heating element located inside of the dishwaher that heats up to help the dishes dry at the end of the wash cycle, which is controled by a thermostat. If the heating element or the thermostat are bad your dishes won't dry.

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
