Miele Dishwasher door release problem

We have just run for the 1st time our brand new Miele G2872 dishwasher.

At the end of the programme the door opened slightly, held open by a plastic arm.

The arm though appears stuck and we can now neither open fully or close the door.

Do you have any suggestions?

I switched the dishwasher off at the mains and then back on again. At this point the plastic arm started making a noise like it was trying to retract so I pulled the door to help it along. The door opened and the arm fully retracted - much to my relief.

I have a whirlpool gu2400 dishwasher. The spring loaded soap dispenser door does not open during the wash cycle to release the soap.


Whirlpool dishwashers use a wax motor or a solinoid to release the door at a specific time during the cycle. So for proper cleaning the soap cup is nessesary . The part isn't that expensive and fairly simple repair.

Can I turn the beeper off on the end of the washcycle on the DDY062 Hoover dishwasher. I want to put it on timer delay and dont want to be woken in the middle of the night.


These are the instructions taken directly from the DDY062 manual:
Alarm mute for the PROGRAMME END
The alarm for the programme end may be muted as follows:
IMPORTANT The dishwasher must be ALWAYS off before start this procedure.
1. Hold down the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button and at the same time switch on the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button (a brief audible signal will sound).
2. Keep the "PROGRAMME SELECTION" button pressed for at least 15 seconds (during this time, 2 audible signals will sound).
3. Release the button when the second audible signal sounds (3 "PROGRAMME SELECTION" indicator lights will come on).
4. Press the same button again: the 3 indicator lights (which indicate that the alarm is activated) will start flashing (to indicate that the alarm is off).
5. Turn off the dishwasher by pressing the "ON/OFF" button to confirm the new setting.
To turn the alarm on again, follow the same procedure.

Our Miele dishwasher has started to make a noise when the drying cycle starts, 25 mins from the end of the programme. Sounds like a the fan bearing or, because it's pretty new, maybe it's obstructed or...


And do you get a pool of water on the floor when you open the door and the fan drains out? If so, then you have the Miele problem.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is a stupid problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.

In fact I just did this with mine today. The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

PS: I still have the puddle on the floor, so am trying again only 3 days later! But this has worked before.

Dishwasher will not start


Check the drain pan area under the dishwasher, if it full of water it will trip a float switch and run the drain pump until the water evaporates or is removed by a shop vac.
