You need to find where the leak is an fix it. There are many hoses where it could be leaking from, or the water inlet valve, or the pump itself. You will probably need an engineer unless you are willing to pull it out and remove the case and look for the drip marks.

I have a miele dishwasher model G2270SCVI it is about 8 years old.It has just started tripping the meterbox every time we turn it on for a cycle{after about 2mins}i have removed the metal toe plate and...


Water in the under side of the washer is probably shorting the unit out, making for a potentially very dangerous and potentially lethal hazard.. Turn the breaker off to the dish washer until you have figured out where the leak is coming from. Is it from the supply line that feeds the water to the machine or is the tub leaking. I would guess the water supplu line is leaking.

I have a AEG OKO Favorite 675 dish washer and if you start it or open the door it sounds as if it is just draining all the time, what can be wrong?


Hello Barbara, I have one of these dishwashers and this is what happens. There is a drip tray in the bottom of the machine that catches any leaked water. There is a float switch in the drip tray that detects water in the tray. If there is water in the tray, the float switch turns on the drain pump. This will immediately pump all of the water out of the machine and keep the pump running until you remove the water from the drip tray. The pump only pumps out the machine but does not pump from the drip tray. Also the pump will keep running even if the door is open or if the machine cycle is stopped. The only way to stop the pump is to turn off the electricity supply. But also turn off the water supply at the same time, because if the valve that feeds water into the machine is faulty, it will fill the machine till it overflows and if the power is off the float valve cannot turn on the drain pump. On this machine, the solenoid valve that let\'s water into the washer is at the end of the inlet pipe when is connects to the water supply. It is powered by line voltage (230 volts in our case). If this is faulty, it can be replaced with a commercial solenoid valve. The is a two core cable running inside the outer plastic pipe on the inlet pipe. This carries the power to the solenoid valve.
To empty the water from the drip tray, remove the panel from the front of the washer. It is below the front door and has two screws on each end. When you remove this you will see a hole on the left that is big enough to put your finger through and feel if there is water in the tray. If there is, push through a small plastic pipe and suck out the water. It does not take much water to switch on the float valve, maybe the door was not closed properly and some water leaked into the bottom of the unit.
I gained the above knowledge by bitter experience.

When using the sweep nozzle (yellow tip), the pressure starts and stops but the machine works fine when using the circluar nozzle(red)


usually when the power washer pressure stops the machine is running out of water. the sweep function uses a little more water than the round wash tip. Make sure there are no leaks in the supply hose and that the supply faucet is turned on all the way and has plenty of "flow". also make sure the water connection at the washer is not leaking. use a new rubber washer to make a good seal on the supply hose on both ends. if either end leaks or can **** air, just a little bit of air into the pressure washer will cause it to loose pressure.

Machine runs but doesn't allow water to come into machine


Don't know the history of your machine, sounds like possibly the hot water supply valve under your sink is turned off. To check this go under your kitchen sink and inspect water supply valves, (right side cold water) left side hot water valve feeds the machine. Vertical water line is for sink above, there should be a second water line coming off this valve that has its own on/off knob. Make sure this knob is turned on, (counterclockwise)if not sure turn it to the right (clockwise)till stops, then to the left till it stops. This allows hot water to enter dish machine. If valve is on and line is ok, there might be a kink in the line behind the dish machine or a restriction (clog) in the water line. May need to unplug machine and unsecure it to pull it out for inspection. Good luck,best regards.

Lots of mold around rubber gasket; unable to clean off; odor from mold; water in detergent trays; maybe some water leaking from washer; washer bought in 2008


Use a s.o.s pad to remove mold there will still be staining but it will gey the bulk of.Now to get rid of the smell ( this has been a mixture I have used for about ten yers works every time) put the washer on hot heavy wash start when done filling drain what you want to do is make sure the water is the hottest it can be. now start washer again on hot wash when you see water in bottom of tub stop machine to open door ADD two cups of dish washing power( brand does not matter I tell most people to buy cheap stuff at walmart) start machine let it run till you see powder disolve then stop washer and add 1 cup bleach. let unit go through complete cycle..If your washer has a clean cycle use that instead of the heavy or normal cycle. The most I ever had to do this treatment was 2 cycles and it worked every time.Note all front load washers the door must be left open to pervent odor/bellows should be wiped clean after each use/and a good cleaning at least once a month. anyhow if this helped please vote if you need more help please ask

NOTE the dish soap is the stuff for a dish washer

Water leaking into tub\when washer is off


One of the water solenoid valves is leaking--to find which one, turn off one external supply line and after waiting a while, does that stop the leak? If not, replace the other solenoid valve. If yes, replace that solenoid valve.

Dish washer not working


close the hot water valve to the water line feeding the machine and disconnect the water supply from the valve.Once you've done that than slowly turn on the valve to see if their is any water flow if their is water coming out of the valve than you probably have a problem with the pump.

Leaking Duet Washer


hi there,

looks like you may have a pinched hose or the fitting is overtightened or not tightened enough. turn off the water supply and check the water inlet hose. you can usually tell if the fittings are stripped or not tight enough.
