Question about Miele 24 in. G680 Built-in Dishwasher
I have a G2430 Optima Series Miele Dishwasher. it is just over 2 years old. It sounds like the dishwasher is always running. Last week we received an F70 error code message. Took care of that and it worked fine for about 2-3 times now seems to run automatically w/o being turned on.
A F70 fault is the float switch in the base of the unit which is activated due to water in the base. you may have used too much detergent or the wrong detergent causing the unit to over sud or you have a genuine water leak. the continous running noise is the drain pump trying to remove any water.
you need to remove the bottom panel, turn the power off and dry up the water with a towel. then run it again and see if you can see a leak.
hope this helps

I had Miehle tech out yesterday for continuous F70 codes. He could find nothing wrong. I suggested that he pull out the dishwasher for a look see. He kept insisting a soap problem and to not use much. I told him that we always used very little as my wife cleans the dishes throughly before placing them in the washer. He insisted it was a soap problem again and left. He could not recreate the problem.
I told him that he will be back. So today we again went to use the appliance and failure again. I called Miehle again. Told by the tech that took the call that it is a soap problem,,,,,must be in their script.
I told him that likely a failed seal or hose and that dishwasher should be pulled out for a look see. He proceeded to tell me that if it did not fail while their appliance repairman was onsite, there was little that they could do. I suggested then that they replace the dishwasher.
He then told me that a repairman will be at my home again tomorrow between 8 and 5,,,,,which means I get to stay home all day again tomorrow.
I then find this site that gives a dozen possibilities besides a "soap" problem,,,,most of which means pulling the washer forward for a look round back.
Oh yes,,,,my hobby and sport is rebuilding and showing classic cars and riding and repairing my motorcycles,,,,so it's not as if I just fell off a turnip truck when it comes to mechanics,,,,,,it's a dishwasher for god's sake.
So tomorrow we will see what's next,,,,bet it's again a "soap' problem.
