Miele dishwasher very noisy, squeaking

I have a Miele dishwasher I don't know how old that "surges" (pulse of water, then silence, then pulse of water, then silence) and then later in the cycle, it is really loud and squeaky sounding. The noise is getting louder. There is still a little water in the drain pan on the bottom after every cycle, and I check the backflow valve, which seems to be working fine (it spins). The dishwasher installation was not to code, there is no air gap nor extra loop in the drainage pipe - which I've been meaning to fix too. It is a built in, attached with just two or so screws.

This sounds like a bad timer. The timer is what tells the pump to drain at specified times. If it gets a bad contact, that timed cycle won't happen.

PS: Do you know for sure that the drain is occurring in mid-cycle? If not, you may just have an obstruction in the drain and/or anti-siphon valve (where the hose connects under the dishwasher.

Seems you answered your own question here. You need to make an air gap in the drain hose - take as much slack as possible and make a curve (upside down U) under you sink as high as you can go. Make sure you clip ot to back of the cabinet to stabilize it. Good luck

unplug where the dishwasher drains into your garbage disposal and visually assure by looking in that hole that there is no build up there. You could have a partial blockage either at this spot or in the drain line itself. I do tend to find this alot for people that do put there coffee grounds down there garbage disposal. If you have looked and checked the entire drain line and drain port that goes into the disposal one of the next places you would look would be to assure that the float switch is activating the switch in the right postion and is not bent. Also on the inside of your tub you will see the float itself this connects to the float switch which is located on the underside of the tub usually to the right of the water inlet valve. If the float switch checks out well then you would look at the drain pump itself and remove the pump from the unit and use a extension cord that you would cut the female end off and add two electrical connectors to which by doing this you have just created a powered jumper wire. You can then connect the two connectors to the pump and the other end to the wall to visually see the impellar on the inside of the pump functioning. Also before removeing the pump sometimes I also find that on some units the way the drain hose is run is the issue as well where as it should be higher then the port hole on the disposal and not just run along the floor and then right to the disposal. If anything it should be run upwards to the highest point of the underside of the sink and then connected to the disposal which causes a better vaccum in the drain line and the pump doesnt have to constantly be pushing the water upwards. If you have any further questions message me back I await your reply. Please also remember when our chat has fully concluded to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation it allows me to continue helping others in similar situations in the future. Thanks again

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with F13 error

F13 Indicates that you have a water intake fault. The machine is not receiving the the proper amount of water quantity. You could turn off the water supply and disconnect the water inlet hose. There is a filter inside, to remove the filter you have to take out the seal and then you could use a pair of needle nose pliers to take out the filter basket. If the filter is clean you and your water supply is good, you have a problem with your flow meter not registering pulses when the water is taken in.

Hello. My dishwasher (Miele G 579 SC) does not fill water enough. When filling is done I must fill manually with a bucket to get water to a sufficient level. What might be the problem? Kind regards...


When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

What does it mean when F 14 is displayed in the window?

F14 - "level/pressure switch failure." The level switch monitors the dishwasher's water pressure, as it circulates, which is especially critical, during the heating cycle (main wash). Level switch failure can commonly happen from poor circulation, or from the defective level switch, itself. The most common reason for poor circulation is low water fill level. In other words, during the water intake cycle, insufficient water came into the dishwasher. Observe if enough water did come into the dishwasher, Check the water level, by using the filter's handle (located on the floor, of the inside of the dishwasher) as a reference point. At the end of the water fill stage, the water level should be just underneath the filter's handle. If the water level is more than half an inch, below the filter's handle... then that could be a problem. The sympton would be a noisy, sluggish, whooshing sound of water, during circulation - It wouldn't be the same old quiet Miele dishwasher you knew.

If you have the low water fill problem, then look at the dishwasher's water intake hose. Miele call this their Waterproof System hose (WPS). It's a water hose with an integrated electric valve. First, shut your water valve that connects to this WPS; disconnect the WPS from your valve; look inside the end of the WPS. With a needle nose plier, remove the rubber seal, filter and the water restrictor; clean them of any possible debris; put all the parts back into the WPS, securely; reconnect the hose; open your water valve; and test the dishwasher. If the problem persists, then the WPS will need to be replaced (WPS~$170).

Other causes for F14, can be weak circulation from foreign item(s) (plastic wrapping, broken glass, etc,...) lodged inside circulation pump impeller, or no circulation, at all (circulation pump stuck). Of couse, the defective level switch, itself, can cause the F14, too. The least common causes for the F14 can be broken wires to and from, level switch and electronic unit, and a defective electronic unit.

The intake/drain light blinks. How do I fix this problem?

Miele intake/drain flashes, no drain

this can happen after inactivity. the circulation pump seal sticks and wont turn . when the dishwasher starts to fill the circulation pump is pulsed on to see if the preasure switch switches over (to see if water is getting into the dishwasher) if the pump does not turn there is no preasure and the machine stops thinking no water has entered. turn pump by hand to cure.

Miele Touchtronic G892 SC Water leak at base of door

check the rubber seal around the door to see if its torn or smashed. if it is replace it, could someone have set somthing heavy on the door while it was open that would have stressed the hinges. it is most likely one of these problems take a nail file and slid it gently between the door and the body of the dishwasher if it slides in easy where it leaks you know the seal is bad and replace it.
