We have a model G2470SCSF dishwasher. We son't

We have a Miele model G2470SCSF dishwasher. We don't have a manual for the washer. Every time we use it, it leaves the washer still wet. Especially the plastic tray for the silverware (forks,spoons,knives etc.) 5 days or even longer the tray is still very very wet. What is the cause of this problem? P. Yano

You have more than one issue and that is drainage and drying…I do not know how many techs you discussed this before me but to tell you up front we do not share information and everything between you and those stays that way. First you need to check on the drainage and see if that works try to run it empty and bypass the wash just go to rinse and see what will happen, then bypass everything and see if the heater will work, if both not then it may be the board as two things not working at the same time highly unlikely.

Let me know how this worked for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we are able to improve on it. The rating as follows 1 the service was not related to the post. 2 the service was related but not did not help at all. 3 the service was to the point and somewhat complete. 4 the service was excellent and to the point.

    Does your unit has the followings:

    Hidden Controls
    Acoustic Function Monitor
    Optical Function Monitor

    Please check the following and inform me of the outcome:

    Does the main wash motor come on? Most times the pump seal gets stuck and needs help to free itself. Miele makes a special tool for this but you can construct your own from a wire coat hanger. Bend it into a fork shape about 4" long with the tines about 3/4" apart, remove the sump cover and stick it into the the wash pump and give it a turn.

    Check the air gap leading to the unit The air gap on the dishwasher may somewhat clogged, see if you can shone a light down on the air gap. Not enough to prevent draining, removing the cap and running the dishwasher would show water coming out the air gap top, but if there was enough gunk to slow down the drainage and set the intake alarm. Bypassing the air gap resolved the issue.

    Can you hear the wash pump coming on? If not you probably have some broken glass fouling the impeller and it time for some major surgery.

    Let me know how this worked for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we are able to improve on it.

Salt light won't go out in a Miele Dishwasher

As per other thread, descale machine with kettle descaler in the dispenser instead of powder, then run the machine through a cycle with nothing in the dispenser. The salt chamber sensor will eventually clear, but make sure you don't overfill with salt.

I have a Miele Platinum Turbothermic dishwasher. The intake drain light is flashing and the bottom of the washer is full of water. How do I fix it?

I have this same dishwasher I already dumped 400 into it to fix the intake drain and no more than a few uses after it breaks again I have never had more problems with a top of the line product or so what Miele thinks it is. I absolutely hate this dishwasher I refuse to put anymore money into it it is the worst product and Miele is no help they don't care whatsoever. I will never ever purchase Miele products they are more work and headache than cheaper models which will stand the test of time. What a complete piece of you know what.

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my...

well as I cant be specific as ive never heard of this model even, but I know washers in general pretty well , I can say if you have a digital display that tells cycle time (again un usual) and it stops timing , this seems a pretty sure thing you have an electronics problem , most likely in the circuit boards themselves , but if your not sure of what does what , it might be a little less expensive to enlist someone that does b4 just shotgun replacing boards because they can get expensive !!

Intake/drain light flashing

I have (had) the exact same problem with my Miele. Here is what (appears) to have fixed it:

1) Disconnect the inflow line at the water source. Its the connection that looks like a garden hose. Use a screw driver to remove the washer inside, the pull out the little filter with needle nose pliers. My was clogger with particles from the washer. Clean with soap and a tooth brush.

2) Disconnect the outflow line at the garbage disposal. My was moderately clogged with food (Note: my son overfilled the garbage disposal before running. It may have backed up).

This worked for now at least. Remeber, as irritating as red lights can be, it prevents the motors and pumps from burning out when you have clogged plumbing.
