Miele G679 dishwasher leaking

Hi,

My Miele G679 dishwasher stopped working: there was no water entering it.

After doing some research online, I unplugged the dishwasher from the main and ended up opening the access panel. I identified a leak that kept the float switch in raised position.

I got rid of the water laying there, so the dishwasher would still work. However, the leak is still here and need fixing.

Here are a photo and a video of what I can see:

- video of the leak: http://www.denisducasse.com/dishwasher/dishwasher.mov

Could someone help me with that?
In advance, many thanks!

    I've taken the flow meter out of the dishwasher and ordered a replacement part from Miele for £80.08 (those little things cost a fortune!?!)

    Your answer was very helpful! Now I hope that installing the new flow meter will fix the leak.

    Many thanks for your help.

Hi,

your flowmeter is leaking and would need replacing. Miele spare parts is the only place you will be able to purchase spare parts other than through an authorised Miele service agent. Have a look at the Miele website for your nearest Miele branch or service agent.

The only other option would be to try and seal the leak with araldite or silicone but how long that lasts is anyones guess.
Hope this helps.

Miele G1182 dishwasher not working


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.

How to fix leak in miele dish washer g1202 svi has F70 fault and small leak into catch pan


The reason the pump keeps running when F70 fualt appears is that the water leak circuit has tripped which causes the dishwasher controller to empty the dishwasher to avoid flooding of the motor and pump area.

The sources of leaks could be many, to start with hoses and water inlet valve. If you feel you can handle such repairs then go ahead otherwise call a technician.

Make sure the mains power is turned off when you are working with the dishwasher internals.

Hello. My dishwasher (Miele G 579 SC) does not fill water enough. When filling is done I must fill manually with a bucket to get water to a sufficient level. What might be the problem? Kind regards...


Hi

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Water continues to run, even when unplugged....


Hi, had the same problem. Water would not stop entering the dishwasher until the water valve for dishwasher was completely shut off. (Even when circuit breaker for dishwasher was turned off, the water still came into the dishwasher). Well after research, it is the water inlet valve. Replaced it yesterday and it is working as good as new. Look up this part online if you aren't sure what it looks like. Good luck,

Miele dishwasher film and crust on the inside-


Hard water has this "crust" which are minerals floating around that ionically attach to everything. Some machines from Miele have a water softener inside the machine. Special dishwasher softener Salt is added that cleans minerals off Xeolite beads. When cleaned they attract mineral ions. If you don't use the salt then the beads fill up on minerals until they can't hold any more minerals. The salt is used in the regeneration cycle. It washes the mineral ions off the xeloite replacing them with salt ions. As new water enters the machine mineral ions slowly knock off the salt ions and attach themselves to the beads again. This whole process keeps the crust off the dishes and the walls of the machine.
Use a dishwasher cleaner that removes scale. And if you don't have a salt light on your Miele you can instead purchase soap tablets that contain water softener built in. Miele dishwasher tablets have it. You can order them online or call Miele.

Dishwasher not working


Hi Frazzledmum, Miele have a safety float switch in the bottom of the machine. (The float is a polystyrene disc). If the machine leaks for any reason, then the water sits in the bottom tray raises the float switch & all your dishwasher will do is activate the drain pump and flash those red lights at you. The reason is that somewhere under the machine there is a leak that needs to be investigated & repaired so in this instance I'm affraid that you will have to call a serviceman. Kind regards
