Question about Miele 24 in. G656SCi Plus SS Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Half way through a program then stops, leaving water in the bottom of the machine

I have checked all the filters including the water inlet, all clear
Any program stops half way through leaving water in the washer, with the Inlet/Drain light flashing.
I will replace the water inlet pipe tonight, this is a costly exercise if I am not right with this solution.

Please advise

Check the flood switch first. It will stop the dishwasher but you may hear a moter running.

Dishwasher humming, check water light on, no progress


Sounds like the inlet solenoid is not working. It lets water in. It is operated by the control board. Either could be bad. You would need a schematic and a multimeter to check the solenoid. Dangerous voltages are present.

Aeg favorit 40010vi dishwasher won't fill with water


I have a similar issue on oko favorit 50700. I have checked the flow from the inlet hose into a bucket and it really seems ok, so I think maybe a problem at the inlet to the machine? Plea update if you get a fix!

Our fisher and paykel dishdrawer won't wash. It comes up with F1 and flashing light on control panel.


the dynamo dishwashing stuff has caused foaming which reached the base of the dishdrawer unit causing the flood switch to trip. This gives F1 error.
Not sure how much foaming has occured.

Best to turn off power and take power cable out from socket. then empty the drawer using towels. pull out the bottom drawer and wait a day or so to let the foam disappear from the bottom of dishwasher (under the bottom drawer). Connect the power and see if F1 had gone. If not, you need more work. Post a comment based on the above suggestion and I will guide you further if required. Always use Finish dishwasher power only (recommended quantity) as the drawers are small and don't need much detergent.

Kenwood kdw12st3a error e1 & water leak


I suspect it is taking too long to fill.
Remove the inlet hose and check the water pressure there.
Also make sure the small filter there is clean and retry.
If you have ever turned the washer on any side, then
I think you may have water in the pressure switch by turning it over.
You need to locate it and see if there is water in there.
It should e round and have wires attached and a thin rubber tube. Unfortunately There is no parts diagram for this machine

I have a samsung dms500tr dishwasher that turns on, starts the program but will not fill with water. we have checked filter and all are clear


The water inlet valve has stopped working. It is an electric magnet valve. located in the bottom of the machine, remove the side panel where the water hose comes in and follow the hose to the valve. Shut off the water supply and remove the valve, note how the wires are connected. Buy a new valve and replace. No special tools are required. A Phillips scewdriver a straight screw driver and a pair of pliers are a that is required.

Dishwasher is switched on and can hear motor but nothing else happens. no water nothing. the tablet is still in the dispenser. i have never put salt in the compartment as i was told the tablets already...


It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.

If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor .

Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water .

Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.

I have a Miele SCU 648. The "start" and "end"(or


It is possible that a low water pressure can increase the time for the program and so this can lead to the program contrroller hanging up to show the flashing.
So remove the inlet and the water line to the inlet, check the filter and the inlet valve. If the pressure seems good , check the flow when the program starts.
Also counter check on the water level sensor, the drain pump/valve. finally check the winding on the heater using a multimeter, check the power to the heater during the program.

Dishwasher stuck´s in program


Hi there,

Well to Reset the error message as follows: To cancel the error message, turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the appliance off and then back on again. 

If resetting not work then you can check that the stopcock is opened fully or whether the water inlet hose is kinked. Check that the water inlet filter is not clogged and clean it, if necessary, as described in the operating instructions. Check that the drain pump is not clogged.

Good Luck!!

Kenmore dishwasher is not washing properly and leaving dirty water in the bottom when it is finished, Can i fix it?


If your washer is overfilling, check these:

Water-inlet valve
Water-level switch
Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.
