Question about Miele 24 in. G870 Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Miele G870SC Dishwasher won't start. when issue first occured the salt light was on. during troubleshooting, i unplugged it for a minute then re-plugged it in and now i don't even get the salt light. I cleaned the filters, sucked up residual water in filter area and salt cavity. i opened, drained and cleaned the ball-float. i removed front panel and checked that the door latch switch with a multimeter to ensure it is getting a close signal. If anyone can think of anything else please let me know. today is May 17th 2011.

SOURCE: Dishwasher fan fills with water

Well, I just took my hose out (pulled both ends off the connectors) and it was indeed full of junky cruddy muck, so blew it out over a waste bin until it ran clear through. Now I've put the hose back on and will see what happens next wash!

SOURCE: dishwasher stops after 10 minutes inlet/drain light flashing

I had the same problem on a 5 year old model. It was the main pump leaking from a perished seal causing the water protection microswitch to trip. This gives the symptoms you describe exactly. Parts cost from Miele was about £60 for a new seal. Fairly easy to fit.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: Have Miele G653 SCVi plus. We have inlet/drain flashing red light

Hi,

Sounds like something is caught in th drain pump as the unit has to drain first before anything else happens. Remove the filter and the non return valve which is under the clip in the sump of the unit. In the manual it shows you this. Make sure the drain pump is free of any foreign particles like broken glass. Then start the unit again so it goes to drain without the non return valve in place. This will then throw out any foreign particles as well.

or it could be the drain pump is activated all the time which is the noise you hear as there is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. You will see the float at the front. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck

My Miele dishwasher has water in the bottom of it and won't run


Check the impeller on the pump to make SURE it's turning freely. There could be a piece of debris wedged in there - like glass or a screw from a pot handle. If this is redundant, I apologize.

Salt light won't go out in a Miele Dishwasher


As per other thread, descale machine with kettle descaler in the dispenser instead of powder, then run the machine through a cycle with nothing in the dispenser. The salt chamber sensor will eventually clear, but make sure you don't overfill with salt.

Salt (PC) light is flashing


Miele dishwashers have a built-in water softener. I suspect the unit is indicating that the dishwasher softener salt is low or needs to be replenished.

Which model dishwasher do you have? http://www.mieleusa.com/products/modelsg5000.asp?cat=2&menu_id=1&oT=125&active=Our%20Products&subm=Home%20Appliances&thirdL=Dishwashers&fourthL=Products lists a number of their dishwashers and has the manuals for them. Click on the model and scroll down. Click on the Manuals tab. (Click on the Retired models if your dishwasher isn't on the first page.)

I hope this helps.

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.

Miele dishwasher film and crust on the inside-


Hard water has this "crust" which are minerals floating around that ionically attach to everything. Some machines from Miele have a water softener inside the machine. Special dishwasher softener Salt is added that cleans minerals off Xeolite beads. When cleaned they attract mineral ions. If you don't use the salt then the beads fill up on minerals until they can't hold any more minerals. The salt is used in the regeneration cycle. It washes the mineral ions off the xeloite replacing them with salt ions. As new water enters the machine mineral ions slowly knock off the salt ions and attach themselves to the beads again. This whole process keeps the crust off the dishes and the walls of the machine.
Use a dishwasher cleaner that removes scale. And if you don't have a salt light on your Miele you can instead purchase soap tablets that contain water softener built in. Miele dishwasher tablets have it. You can order them online or call Miele.

Mieli water-intake light comming on?


I think it's regular salt, yes, but I've never bothered to fill mine.

Have you had a dishwasher previously? If not, check the tap where your washer gets its water to make sure it has proper water preasure. If the washer doesn't get enough water it will stop.

In my kitchen there is a separate little knob on the tap to control the water to the dishwasher. this has to be open. Mine has hot and cold selection, but only cold is connected so if I turn it on hot the washer gets no water
