Question about Dishwashers
Just wondering how much water my dishwasher is using on economy cycle??
SOURCE: Miele G575
This sounds like the overflow trip switch has been activated. Some time back I had this problem with a Miele G664. The service man undid 4 screws on the door and removed front panel and found water in the drip tray, He then checked the pipes, outlet pipe had a pice of plastic bread tag stuck in it , this was slowing down the time it took to empty the water and the next fill made it overflow and switch off the dishwasher. He cleaned out the chanel on the overflow that was full of dust and fluff checked the levels to make sure the dishwasher was sitting true. Closed it all up and ran the dishwasher. Perfect!
Bill $160. It did take him the best part of an hour and I live a long way out of town.

Had a similar problem with an 846, but with the inlet outlet lamp flashing. the bottom tray had filled with watedr froma dodgy seal. I switched off and disconnected the electricity. Removed the bottom front cover below the door (2 screws behind the pretty kickboard which also had to come off). The bottom of the machien was a big puddle. I dried this out with paper twowel, put the machine back together and it ran fine. I am going to replace the pump seals now as the machine seems otherwise OK.
Good luck with yours. rupertvdpP

Testimonial: "true, bottom tray was wet fron small split in waste pipe taped it up and have ordered new one thanks for the info job well done"
The water valve on Miele dishwashers is built into the end of the water line where it hooks into your plumbing(in that box-looking assembly) Your best bet is to call Miele USA, I have had very good luck with their customer support system, they can usually diagnose your problem right over the phone.

If its been sitting a while, like 2 months or more, the circulation pump is locked up, need to call Miele, and they will send you a special tool to unbind the motor, its called a hook tool, they will send it to you free... works on the same principal as a garbage disposal tool....

In the bottom of the dishwasher you have a filter. under the filter is a non return valve. it is a one way valve that keeps the dirty drain water from draining back into the dishwasher. if it is dirty or broken, the dirty water that your machine drains out, is running right back in as soon as the drain pump shuts off. this will keep happening and your dishwasher will just spray the dirty water back on the dishes over and over again.
to get to it, you will need to get the water out of the machine. if you have a wet dry shop vac use that. if not, you can bail it out with a cup, and soak the rest up with a sponge. remove the lower spray arm by pulling it up. remove the filter by pulling the handle in the direction of the arrow. lift the filter out of the way. get the rest of the water out of the sump. on the left side of the sump, you will see a silver wire bail holding the non return valve in. flip the bail towards the center of the sump. pull up and out on the non return valve. it has a rubber seal and a stainless steel ball inside. any debris between the seal and the ball will keep the valve from closing all the way, and allow the water to drain back. you can order a replacement if needed, directly from miele. 1800 842 7231.
