    And so does mine. Someone out there must know what the problem is.

    Mine does too... the fan also makes a funny whirring noise as it spews-out water. Is there a solution?

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!

If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk.muck and slop.

Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!

Sounds like you have the Miele Problem.

This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service, but it is easy to learn to do it yourself. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, at least for a number of model years, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

Miele g665 leaking water from turbothermic vent


I had this happen too. There is a rubber venting tube which runs from the vent on the door to the rinse/powder release pods. This clogs up and the water then comes out when the door opens. If you take off the front panel of the machine (screws are on the sides) it is easy to take off and clean out by running hot water through it, also clean out the line through the release pods .. problem should be solved.

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

The little vent above the words turbothermic plus is spitting out water during the cycle.


The fan assembly's drainage path is clogged. With time, food residue cloggs up the drainage path, inside the "Turbothermic" fan, and water accumulates during the drying cycle. The control panel, that houses the fan assembly, will need to be removed. Door panels will also need to come off. Unplug wires and drain hose to the fan, and loosen the round fan grill that secures the fan assembly (located inside the door). Take apart the fan assembly; unclogg drainage path and hose; and wash all parts. Re-assemble, install, and plug, the fan assembly, drain hose and door panels. Good Luck.

Miele Dishwasher G841 - Water not draining after wash cycle


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.

I have a Miele G 892 Dishwasher and recently the vent for the Turbotronic drying fan has been sticking in open position at the ned of the cycle. Teh result is the next cycle the vent fills with dirty water...


You'll have to take the door panel apart. There's a small drain hose between the turbothermic unit and the detergent dispenser. It's most likely clogged.

Miele G868 dishwasher - leaks from front panel air vent


Hi all,

I have had the same problem. Here is what I've done. Take the door apart (a whole bunch of screws on the side of the door). The front panel will come off and you will see a rubber tube. Take it off and blow it out. Then take the blower out (you need to unscrew the inside of the blower). Take apart the blower and clean it out.

Good luck.
