Miele dishwasher problem

Our dishwasher is making a harsh noise when it begins running and again early in the cycle. We have heard it during a couple of cycles and it is not related to a loading issue.

I have a Miele dishwasher model G2120SCU. When turned on, all three yellow lights light up and the unit will not begin wash cycle but makes a noise (possibly the drain pump??). Any idea what the three...

Yes, It means call the technician 800-999-1360

Three blinking lights can be anything either- no drainage, no water, no circulation pump, no salt, etc. based on the model. Each control board code is different on each model.

The technician will provide free step by step instructions to clear the fault and advise you how to get the problem fixed.

Have a Miele G1022i dishwasher (built in). It makes a humming noise when the power supply is turned on. All the indicator lights flash. Have tried cleaning out the drain and removed water from the salt...

A fairly common occurence with Miele dishwashers is the seal on the pump/motor assambly swells up freezeing the motor.Miele makes tool to free it up very easily,if it doesnt reoccur the seal just swelled and it will be ok once freed up.If it does reoccur the seal needs to be replaced. Any Miele authorized service company will have this tool and could free the motor up within 5 minutes and only a couple uses will tell if it will swell again and need to be replaced.

Hi, my Miel, Inspira series dishwasher makes a very loud grinding noise for a few seconds and shuts down...

It must be trying to drain out water but the pump mechanism might be rubbing due to faulty bearing. Need full model number before I can give you more details to look for. Is this happening right at the beginning of the wash cycle?

Hi, my Miele G1142SC makes noise at startup

Mine is doing the same thing. I tried running a finish cleaner though a cycle. I did nothing I was about to do the same thing again when it just stopped doing it. What did you end up doing?

Water does not drain


You can :

Check for hose kinks or food plugging drain hose. Start at the drain port exit

Check the check valve and drain hose for debris.

Check pump motor for reversing during the pump out make sure the dishwasher is pausing between the wash and drain cycles letting the pump/motor reverse for the drain cycle.

Check timer for not letting the dishwasher pause. ( not all dishwashers )

Check pump motor assembly for a drain solenoid, during the pump out make sure the solenoid makes that distinctive "clunk" noise

Check pump impeller for damage.

Check that the water inlet valve isn't seeping fresh water into the dishwasher when off.
Please contact for further clarifications.

Dishwasher not stopping

If it keeps going around then it is probably the programer timer motor unit. You will need to call Miele.

I had this same problem. I think its the upper spray arm vibrating during wash cycle. To verify; prevent the upper arm from rotating by putting a long spatula through the top rack or zip tie the arm so it don't rotate. If the noise goes away you found your problem.
