SOURCE: My CDA WC430IN slimline integrated dishwasher isn't working. The power comes on but the program buttons aren't working - none of the programe type lights will light up.

Try unplugging the cord from the outlet or turning the fuse off from the fuse box that goes to the dishwasher. Wait a few seconds then plug back in to set if it resets itself. Usually if something goes wrong with these types of applicances the whole circut board is replaced by the repair man. Which by the way is cheaper if you can do it yourself.

Should there be a little water left in the dishwasher


yeah there should be a bit but the bottom should also have dishwasher salt in there. this is the bottom. the salt helps kill smells also helps cleaning. when you bought the dishwasher it should of come with a funnel thats for filling the salt into the system.

For the pgo big max 50 cc they have the gear oil on thr left back side how are you supose to fill it ? Right when it goes to thr thread on the strew. I could find this answer in manuel


the bottom big bolt is the drain bolt.
the fill hole is a bolt which you take out to fill the fluid it is labeled with oil symbol or words. this is where you fill it.
there is another bolt you need to take out approx 1 1/2 inch above the botton, it should be labeled
fill or level but sometimes no marks, note: what your looking for is a bolt that dosen't attach anything, that bolt is specifically a level gauge bolt.

okay once drained, put the bottom drain bolt back in. and start filling in the top hole
until you see oil start coming out the fill/gauge hole, once you see oil start flowing out, put the bolt in and tighten, then put the top bolt in and your done.

dispose the old gear oil at your local auto parts store.
Best Regards
Big Al

I have insink badger 5 and it is leaking from the red reset button. How can I fix?


The reset button is where the water is coming out, but the leak is probably somewhere above that.
The disposal may be rusted out and needs to be replaced.
There are ways to check for source of the leak.

Turn off switch before touching any wet electrical appliance.

Test1) Put stopper in disposal.
Fill sink with water.
If water starts dripping from disposal, then the putty seal at the sink strainer could be leaking.
Use dry tissue up at top of disposal to see if tissue gets wet.
To repair, remove garbage disposal and reset strainer using plumber's putty.

Test2)
Check if water only leaks when dishwasher runs.
Dishwasher drains into garbage disposal.
Use dry tissue around dishwasher connection when you hear dishwasher draining

Test3)
A lot of leaks start at the tailpiece.

This is where the disposal drains into the tubular pipes.
Your disposal may have a manufactured tailpiece that doesn't come off
If tailpiece is removable, then it is connected to disposal with a rubber washer.
When washer gets old, it doesn't seal perfectly.
Remove tailpiece, it usually has 2 hex bolts.

When putting the tailpiece back, you need to seal the rubber washer really well.
I use rectorseal on all tubular pipe joints under the sink.
Works on both plastic and rubber washers.
Brush it all over the washer, use plenty, then reinstall tailpiece.
The rectorseal assures that joint will not leak.

If the above repairs don't work, then the disposal is rusted-out and needs to be replaced.

I just had a mouse surface in my holding tank how do I clean that out? do I add bleach and cycle the water softener?


The mouse must have been in one of your product bags...depending on the deterioration of the carcus; you may have already injested some of the decomposing material.
1. Turn off the water supply and remove the top cover
2. Make sure you have rubber glvoes. Drain the holding tank and remove and dispose of the remaining salt tablets/product left in the tank.
3. Yes, clean the tank with a disinfectant (bleach) and rinse thoughly. Be sure to rinse the tank...you don't want high levels of bleach in your supply lines.
4. Fill with new/clean softner tablets and return unit to service.

Remodeled kithen; when dishwasher reinstalled, water backs up


OK, I have made this error before.
When you install a new garbage disposal, it comes with a "plug" that fills the hole of the little pipe that the dishwasher drain hose connects to (if there is a dishwasher.)
Remove that plug (see instructions for the disposal) and you should be all set.
Also, if you ever get the chance, consider installing a dishwasher AirGap valve between your dishwasher and garbage disposal. They are almost free at any hardware store.
Good Luck! Please report back with what you find.

Water softener


Hi vayvego,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You want to know why: Salt residue remains on the dishes. The water softener is going throught salt like crazy. You fill the salt and make sure that the light is off before you start the cylce. Within the first 20-45 mins the salt light comes on again and the dishes will not wash properly. You have come to the conclusion that the salt is being distributed to quicky but cannot figure out why the light keeps coming on. The switch inside the cap for the salt is set a the min.

I hope I understand you. This is how it's suposed to work. The salt in a water softener is only used for backwashig the filter. It should be set to backwash once or twice a week when nobody is useing the water, useually 2am or 3am. The only time you can get salt at the fixture is if you're backwashing when you use the water. If you're backwashing all the time either the controls aren't set right or the unit is defective, in which case it is unlikely you can fix it. In that case you might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman. If it's still under warranty, it's time to make a phone call.

Feel free contact me again!

Salt indicator light comes on?


Check the instructions which are freely available from www.miele.co.uk or the relevant site for your country. Browse to the current models and you should find the PDF for your model. For non-current models, instructions are under the link "Customer Support".

In general, the instructions are as follows:
If the water in your area is very soft and constantly lower than 0.7 mmol/l (4 °d) you do not need to add dishwasher salt. The water softener must, however, still be programmed to correspond to the water hardness level in your area. (The salt indicator light will still come on, but should be ignored).

Important: Before filling the salt reservoir with dishwasher salt for the first time, you must fill it with approx. 2 litres of water to enable the salt to dissolve. Once the dishwasher has been used, there is always sufficient water in the reservoir.

Inadvertently filling the salt reservoir with powder or liquid dishwasher detergent always leads to serious damage to the water softener. Make sure you have picked up the correct packet of dishwasher salt before filling the salt reservoir!

Only use special coarse grained dishwasher salt for reactivation. Do not use other salts such as cooking salt, agricultural grade or gritting salt. These may contain insoluble additives which can impair the functioning of the water softener.

To refill:
* Remove the lower basket and unscrew the salt reservoir cap.
* Fill the reservoir with approx. 2 litres of water (first use).
* Place the funnel provided over the salt reservoir and carefully fill with salt until the reservoir is full. The salt reservoir holds approx. 2 kg of salt depending on the brand used.

As the salt reservoir is filled, displaced water will overflow.
* Clean any excess salt from around the reservoir opening and then screw the cap on again firmly.
* Run the "Pre-wash" programme immediately to remove any traces of salt water from the cabinet.

For the Miele, the salt reservoir is usually under the bottom basket, the cap is usually grey in colour. [Only the latest models have the refill cap in the door itself].

You should be able to find dishwasher salt just about anywhere, I've even found it in Malaysia, sold at good ol' Tesco!! Brands of salt include Calgonit (Finish) & Somat.
