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.

    My Sears Kenmore Elite dishwasher also makes a harsh noise during operation.Does not seem to affect cleaning does not sound good. I took the inside pieces apart to see if anything was lodged somewhere.I found a piece of broken glass below but nothing else. Still making the same noise but it may be a little quieter. Your ideas would be appreciated.

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.

Brand new LG LDF6920 makes a whistling/high pitch squealing noise even during 1st test run, no dishes no contaminants added. It is during the wash motor cycle once the wash pump gets up to speed *screech*....


I had a brand new Dishwasher do that, it wasn't an LG it was a Frigidaire i think, turned out to be some bits of plastic from the manufacturing process that were in the pump. I had another one that made thumping noises and turned out to be a little piece of the tape, you know all that blue or green tape they hold everything in place with when its new. Did you run it through a few cycles and see if the noise quit? Believe it or not when i called about the one that was squealing their customer service said to run a couple cycles to remove anything that might be in the pump from manufacturing, sure enough midway through the second wash cycle it just went quiet and never made another noise again after two years.

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


Hi

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.

Thanks

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.
