I have an Miele Diamante dishwasher. About 4 months ago it started rattling when it would discharge the water. There is definitely something in the drain banging around. It does not affect the performance but is very annoying to listen to each time is drains. I've gone as far as I can from the inside drain without really taking anything apart (fear that is won't go back together correctly). Has anyone else had this issue? Any suggestions besides pulling it out and taking it apart from the bottom?

Re: Miele Diamante dishwasher. Rattles when draining.
Possibly a piece of broken glass or similar you will have to dismantle pump to remove on the other hand your pump could be worn out and needs replacing either way you will have to check out the pump or put up with the noise

I wouldn't worry, depending on how hard your water is it may use very little salt. There's no harm in topping it up to be on the safe side. Salt acts as a water softener that's all, which helps the detergent work better. If you are getting good cleaning I wouldn't worry about it.
Any water comming in to the dish washer area?? If not check the inlet water valve, they get clogged with sand from the water supply. They can also clog open, in which case the dishwasher will flood the floor with water afer about 3 to 4 imins of use.
Hi, There are several causes in dishwashers that make dishes come out with film on them or something of the sort. Here they are. 1 Water temperature should be 140 degrees. Your dishwasher should have a "sani" cycle that heats up the water into that range. 2 Most dishwashers were never engineered for liquid soap. So if you are using it, go to powder soap. 3 A rinse agent is definitely a big plus 4 In some parts of America, such as Florida, lime deposits build up in the machine and accumulate onto the dishes and glasses. It's a white film. It also accumulates in the parts of the machine and clogs them. If this is the case. Run white vinegar in the machine. Empty the machine. Turn it on. While the machine is filling with water, (not at the very very beginning as it will drain out existing water when it is started) put a quart of vinegar in and run it. If it has lime deposits it will greatly reduce them.
5 The spray arms may be jammed with pieces of food or other debris. make sure the holes in the arms are not obstructed.
This fault is low pump pressure. more than likely you have some foreign particles jammed in the circulation pump. you would have to remove the unit, tip it on its side and remove the bottom plate and remove the circulation pump and clear the blockage. the unit will start and stop and not work until the pump is clear.
If you suspect the dish washer, try discharging the drain in a bucket. After the drain cycle check the wash tub. If water is still left, you have to clean the drain filter attached to the bottom. Refer user guide.
The final drain end of the dish washer where you discharge, the fixing junction has to be cleaned, incase it is clogged.
The heating up as you build revs, to me, indicates a partially oped thermostat. If it hasn't been replaced, I would do so. It's inexpensive and easy enough to do. Make sure you get a gasket with it.
The rattling thing is another matter. Do you think it is the water pump that is rattling? Does it ever drip from under your engine all the time?
Hope this helps... Good luck!
Wordhog: Does sound like a siezed wash pump to me. Wash motor needs to run to get the correct level of water.
To drain a Miele dishwasher, start the machine on a cycle. All the Miele range of dishwashers drain before filling. Then hold in the start button until the end/finish light is lit. Keep doing this until all the water has gone. You could just get a jug and bail it out. Once the jug does not do the job anymore, switch to a cup, I use a very large syringe for the remaining half a litre.
