you should have a dispenser on the door to add salt,regardless get c.l.r. calcium lime rust remover from a supermarket,lowes,home depot.put a cup in the unit ,run for 15 minutes and then put a cup in again.let the unit complete its cycle.if you still smell the odor repeat until its gone.you could also use baking soda,flour or vinegar.

SOURCE: dishwasher not cleaning properly and everything tastes like soap

Hi,

To start with reduce the amount of detergent you are using. 2 teaspoons of detergent is enough for any wash.

Probably blocked spray arms is the cause of the unit not cleaning properly. Remove each spray arm (there are 3 in total) and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results. The bottom spray arm is the easiest and just pulls out the other two in the middle and the top you have to unscrew like a childs lock on a tablet bottle. Push up from underneath and unscrew each arm.

Hope this helps.

When I got my Miele dishwasher a year ago, I added salt but did not add water as it said to, the refill light has not come on in a whole year, should I do something?


I wouldn't worry, depending on how hard your water is it may use very little salt. There's no harm in topping it up to be on the safe side. Salt acts as a water softener that's all, which helps the detergent work better. If you are getting good cleaning I wouldn't worry about it.

What is the salt when it comes to the dishwasher


The light is just to let you know that the internal water softener needs water-softener salt.

If you do not use the softener (I do not at my house) then the light serves as a convenient on/off light.

Hi My dishwasher Miele G692 SC has the inlet/drain light illuminated. I have cleared the inlet and tap connection..... Any other suggestions before I ring Miele?


Have you checked the drain? On mine a small piece of broken glass had got past all the filters and had blocked the paddles of the pump - you have to release the spring clip and take off the top of the pump housing. Miele's seem very fussy about any blockages to the water outlet system.

You then have to hold down the start button to force a restart (cost me a call out to learn that) - but it is stated, sort of, in the problem fixing manual.

Water leaking from under the machine (Miele G638 Plus) dishwasher


The salt tank is a pathetic piece of ****. The plastic cracks and leaks into the bottom tray, which in turn sets off the safety switch.
Follow the attaching hoses and bypass the salt tank unless you really need it. This will save you around $250 for a salt tank and $300 labour for callout and repair.
