Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

After working perfectly for almost 10 years, My Miele dishwasher G 664 doesn't fill in water. We replaced the Pressostat and it didn't solve the problem. My technician suggests that the motor is off and advises to replace it ( which is quite expensive) . What do you suggest ?

In my professional opinion with a 10 year old unit. Buy a NEW unit, with a warranty, and do not spend good money after bad, as they say, a unit of this age will simply continue to fault, over and over, as it gets older.

    I was asking about the diagnose , not about the pricing.
    Do you agree with the diagnose or have an another idea about the problem ?

Dishwasher wont fill up with water


When you start the dishwasher you have probably noticed that it first drains water and is very important to hear that drain pump running all the time or stops after a while? Why?
If the drain pump runs constantly then the fault is in the phase of "drain water" or is activated anti-flood system. Reset point of pressostat is not reached after max. 120secs. Programme stop and can be continued after error remedy by pressing the programme key.

If the pump is running for a while and then stops, then the fault is in phase "fill up water". Switchpoint of pressostat is not reached
after max. 60 secs.

Usually built-in dishwashers has anti-flood system that responds in the event of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Such a case, find and repair water leaks.

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.

Optima G2430 Miele dishwasher with intake/drain flashing light


Hi,
F13 is an inlet fault.
First the unit drains and then fills with water. When the unit has intially drained open the door and manually fill the unit with water, about 5lts. This will then allow the dishwasher to go to the next step which is to circulate the water. If this works ok then the water tap is defective, water inlet valve is defective or the electronic unit is not sending the signal to activate the valve. The water inlet valve is the white square box attached to the tap. Remove this and check the filter and make sure water comes out of the tap.If ok then remove the bottom panel of the unit under the door. On the right hand side there is a 2 core cable with a male and female connector. Unplug this and check for voltage from the electronic when the unit goes to fill with water. If there is 240v then the electronic is ok. You will then need a new waterproof system from Miele.

Dishwasher not filling


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Miele dishwasher g664 12 years old maybe?


Hi Lawrenceo,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

You stated your problem as: the dishwasher won't drain.....can here a valve opening and gurgling but then no water exiting. Have cleaned everything and pushed water via tap back through water-exit hose.I to have a Miele G664 dishwasher and when turned on no water no fill. Just sits there with a moter running. Un able to get anyone to come and have a look at it as I live in Mount Victoria NSW.
It sounds like the pump has failed. The motor and the pump are two different parts. This is a common problem with older units. Frankly, after 12 years of use, at least you got your money's worth. At this age, to repair it is to throw good money after bad. It's time o replace it. You'll find there are much nicer models available now.

Feel free contact me again!

This sounds like the overflow trip switch has been activated. Some time back I had this problem with a Miele G664. The service man undid 4 screws on the door and removed front panel and found water in the drip tray, He then checked the pipes, outlet pipe had a pice of plastic bread tag stuck in it , this was slowing down the time it took to empty the water and the next fill made it overflow and switch off the dishwasher. He cleaned out the chanel on the overflow that was full of dust and fluff checked the levels to make sure the dishwasher was sitting true. Closed it all up and ran the dishwasher. Perfect!

Bill $160. It did take him the best part of an hour and I live a long way out of town.
