SOURCE: Miele dishwasher - Turbothermic drying

I found this elsewhere on the net. Seemed to work for me. You need 2 pairs of hands though 1 to hold things together the other to work the screw driver. Thanks to Peter.
I had the same problem on my Miele Dishwasher. Basically the outlet built into the door gets gummed up. You can access it by undoing the screws around the edge of the inside of the door. This will allow you to release the front door cover from the inner stainless steel cover and there will be the tubes etc. for the front vent. Take them off and you will find them blocked with gunge. Give them a jolly good clean so it allows the condensation to drain back into the machine . You will also find the fan in there as well. Clean all around that as well if it's dirty. Put it all back together and no more gurgling or water on the floor when the doors opened. Hope this helps.
Pete

SOURCE: during the drying cycle, the dryer door opens

Chances are the little plastic latch keep is broken. Look at the door and locate a peice that will press into the front area where the clothes go in.
Once you see it, check the keeper and see if it is broken. The door should not just pop open.

you need to remove the front of the door.there is a small pipe from the dryer fan to the top of the detergent dispenser. tis usualy gets blocked at the fan end. also the spout from the fan. this happens if you dont rinse loose food of the items you put in the dishwasher.

Hi,

Sounds like you may have flooded the base of the unit and activated the float switch. Tip the unit forward slightly with a towel at the base and all the water will pour out. You should be right to run the unit after that and any other water inside will dry up. it won't rust as it is stainless steel inside.

Why does my new dishwasher not dry dishes completely?undefined


Mieles do not have a drying element - this is a big energy saver. They save heat from washing and use that to dry the dishes. Sometimes they will not be quite bone dry at the end of the cycle, but most will be dry if you open the door for a little while to let air circulate.

If your vent (port on the front) is blocked then the machine will not be able to blow out the damp air, and you will have wet dishes as you describe. If you have leaking from that port, then check my answers on "the Miele problem" which I am pasting below.

= = = =
You have the Miele problem.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is an idiotic problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.

The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk.muck and slop.

Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!

Heater coil is not getting hot. That could be the thermal fuse or the thermostat or the heater element.

My Miele dishwasher does not get the plastic refridgerator items dry


Hello Zipmap0202,
I have never found that plastic dries very well in my Miele dishwasher as well.
Check your rinse aid indicator to see if it is on. Next to the soap door there is a door you can add rinse aid to. There is also a dispensing control knob that allows you to turn the amount of rinse aid dispensed up or down. Try changing the setting and see how that works. I have done this and it has not worked well for me. I find opening the door after the cycle is done (Just cracking) it will dry plastic alot better

Miele Platinum dishwasher: Can't get past the intake/drain step


It could be that the drain pump or the non-return valve is clogged. Refer to the manual about how to check the non-return valve. It is under the "Maintanence" section. Here is a link to it:

Dryer door pops open. leaves burn marks on clothes.


check to see if you have bent door hinges first, do this by opening the door all the way down and see if it is level with the floor. if it goes past level then the hinges are bent.
guess someone may have fell on the door or used it as a step.
if so, then you can take a hand towel and roll it up, then put it at the bottom of the door and close the door gently to "bend" the hinges back into place. this will aloow the door to stay closed and should also take care of the "burn" marks on your clothes.
i would guess the unit was overheating from the door not closing right allowing air to enter around the door. that will cause the unit to overheat and leave marks on your clothes.
