Miele dishwasher troubleshooting

Hi! The dishwasher finished its cycle, but dishes came out dirty, and there was lots of water standing on the bottom. "Intake" is flushing red.
Of course, I cannot find the instructions that came with the mashine.... Any advice? Thank you for your time!

Is this normal for Miele dishwasher? - some water left below filter and not everything dry after cycle


Plastic items do not get dry because they do not get as hot as glassware. A lot of moisture inside is do to the evaporation of water on the dishes during the dry cycle. Some water remains in the dishwasher because it is impossible to pump all of it out. There is nothing wrong with your dishwasher.

Miele dishwasher finishes the cycle with water in the bottom and the dishes not clean


In the bottom of the dishwasher you have a filter. under the filter is a non return valve. it is a one way valve that keeps the dirty drain water from draining back into the dishwasher. if it is dirty or broken, the dirty water that your machine drains out, is running right back in as soon as the drain pump shuts off. this will keep happening and your dishwasher will just spray the dirty water back on the dishes over and over again.

to get to it, you will need to get the water out of the machine. if you have a wet dry shop vac use that. if not, you can bail it out with a cup, and soak the rest up with a sponge. remove the lower spray arm by pulling it up. remove the filter by pulling the handle in the direction of the arrow. lift the filter out of the way. get the rest of the water out of the sump. on the left side of the sump, you will see a silver wire bail holding the non return valve in. flip the bail towards the center of the sump. pull up and out on the non return valve. it has a rubber seal and a stainless steel ball inside. any debris between the seal and the ball will keep the valve from closing all the way, and allow the water to drain back. you can order a replacement if needed, directly from miele. 1800 842 7231.

White film on dishes and still dirty.


Check rinse aid is actually dispensing - turn it up to max for a while to clear it, and check level is going down after a week.

If you suffer with hard water - your heating element may need replacing as it is probably furred up.

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.

Residue and unclean dishes in a miele dishwasher


Try more or less detergent. Is rinse aid solution and detergent dispensers working properly? Otherwise, you may have an issue with quality of water.

Dishes are not getting clean


Hi there.
In the bottom of the dishwashers is normally a filter with a handle on it for easy removal. pull it up, gently, you might have to turn it slightly from side to side to loosen it if it is very dirty. When this filter is out you will see another filter that is just lifted straight up and on that one you might find a lot of dirt.Put both filters in a 10 liter bucket with on cup of chlorine(diluted to 5%) to 5 liters of water. Pour some chlorine( 2 cups) into the bottom of the machine, and close the door and let the machine run on its hottest cycle until finished. When the machine is finished, rinse out the filters in the bucket with warm water. Brush the rest of the dirt off and replace them where they were. Run the machine once again, now on a normal cycle with the dishes in it and I believe they will be clean.

No hot water, plates cold and dirty and wet


If you've installed it recently make sure the hot water tap was plumbed in and not the cold water tap, check the hot water tap temp in the house to make sure it's getting warm, there also should be a heating element located inside of the dishwaher that heats up to help the dishes dry at the end of the wash cycle, which is controled by a thermostat. If the heating element or the thermostat are bad your dishes won't dry.

Dishwasher not washing


Check the very bottom tray under the machine. Remove the lower front cover, 2 screws, and you'll find a tray full of water.  A Turkey Baster will **** most of it out,  towel the rest.
Once dry, the machine will operate through all cycles, most likely.
This is a common problem with this model.  I have to do this about once a year.

First clean the sprayer arm of all debris. In the back of most dishwashers there is a screen on the bottom that is often full of junk, debris and other stuff from dishes not being scraped off.

Clean that screeen off.

Run vinegar (1 cup) for a full cycle to help break down the lime and other build ups.

Check sprayer arm for debris and other objects. carefully pick it out with a small needle or sometimes even a nail works.

Try running dishes again to see if this helps.
