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

2 Answers

Miele G575 Hi, My dishwasher (1991 Miele G575) does not fill with water. The soap container does not open either. I wonder if that is caused because there is no water coming in. Is there anything we could do ourselves before we call the repair man? Thanks

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.

GET A BUCKET AND SOME RAGS ... LOOK UNDER THE SINK TO FIND WHERE THE WASHER SUPPLY LINE IS ATTACHED ... YOU CAN CHECK THE WATER SUPPLY INLET WHERE THERE IS A STRAINER THAT CAN CLOG. MAKE SURE YOU TURN "OFF" THE VALVE BEFORE DOING ANYTHING. WHEN YOU HAVE THE LINE "OFF" CRACK-OPEN THE VALVE A BIT TO SEE IF YOU ARE GETTING WATER ...YOU MAY WANT TO FILL THAT BUCKET SEVERAL TIMES TO GET GOOD CLEAN WATER FLOWING. THEN CHECK THE WATER LINE WHERE IT CONNECTS TO THE WASHER THAT IS WHERE THE STRAINER USUALLY IS ... GOOD-LUCK

Miele 2140scu dishwasher Inteke/drain error . The dishwasher fill up the water and works for 10-30 sec , after that drain the water out . Sometimes just fill up the water and drain out right away .

The Level switch is faulty - the purpose is to measure the pressure from the recirc pump - if pressure is insufficient it shuts down the unit. We find that soap deposits are the common cause of the switch failure

Water levil to high on miele g575

It is possible that there is a block in the drain hose which prevents water from previous wash to fully empty.
This means when you start dishwasher next time it overflows and causes the dishwasher flood switch to trip and shut dishwasher.

You will need to check the drain hose for any blockages and clear it.

You said it does not progress...meaning the dial does not eventually move? it may be waiting on a water level sensor to be tripped. The dishwasher is just not filling. The water valve solenoid may be stuck or defective. or a wire may have come off the valve solenoid.

Miele Turbothermic G579SC Dishwasher Intermittent Problem Dishwasher works fine on approximately 30 per cent of times it is used. This percentage seems to be about the same whatever program is selected...

Hi

Dishwashers use Bi-Metal strip to allow the dispenser to open/close. This strip when heat up causes the soap door spring to open up the dispenser. If this strip is not heated doesn't allow the door to open. The strip may not be getting 120V or maybe disconnected. Newer (plastic liner) dishwashers use a wax motor to open the soap dispenser. The plunger inside the wax motor slowly moves and pushes the plunger and door open. And, if this wax motor doesn't receive 120 volts, then it'll not work. Please check the voltage to the wax motor/Bi-metal strip; also inspect the connections to these. Hope this helps...

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.

Miele G575 slow and insufficient water fill

The unit has a double valve system, the waterproof, it could be that one of the valves is not opening fully. They can break down over time. This would mean you need a new one. This should fix the problem.
Open the door once the wash has started and check the water level. It could be that it is siphoning out half way through the wash. Make sure your drain hose is secured up properly.
If when you open the wash and there is not enough water, it is most likely the waterproof, as I stated before.
cheers.

Miele G575 Dishwasher

If the water level is not adjusted at the right level
(see Miele G 575 manual page 29),
the flap doesn't open at the right circle,or doesn't open at all.
(Cause of the low water level the machine makes more noise!)
======Now shut down the power for the machine!!!=============
To adjust the water level new,you have to open the shield(2 screws) under the
main door.(enginen compartment).(You don't have to move the machine!)
On the right ,right,right,hand side,there is a 6 cm round beige plastic box.
(the first thing you see to you right and very easy access)
Only one black water hose(about 1cm=1/4inch) and a few wires are going into this box.
This is the water level adjustment box.
In the middle of the beige plastic box is a beige plastic screw
to adjust the water level new.Turning it clock vise ,increasing
the water level.
(For the right water level,see page 29 in your G575 Miele manual)
The water level hasn't to be super price.Just in about and enough.
(It seems that the rubber membrane in the water level unit ages
and therefor it has to be readjusted after a longer time)
