The dispenser flap on my Miele G575 dishwasher not infrequently fails to open at the correct part of the wash cycle. As a result the powerball detergent is not released and the wash needs to be repeated. Apart from that the unit works perfectly. Would a new dispenser solve the problem?
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)

It could be jammed with old and hardened dishwasher detergent which dries like cement, preventing the little door from opening up. Clean the soap dispenser area with warm water and a toothbrush, especially underneath the area where the cover springs open.
It is caused by not enough water being allowed in by the 'flood protector'. You know, that weird lump on the inlet hose at the tap.
Mine has been slowly getting worse and worse. Seems it needs good water pressure to open the flap and it can't achieve it unless the correct amount of water is in the washer.
Currently I just chuck a couple of pans of water in at the start and again at 32 minutes for the rinse.

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.
There is a solenoid that opens the door to the dispenser. You can check it with a volt/ohm meter. Sometimes large dishes can block the door keeping it from opening. I personally know on some Whirlpool washers (because it was mine) that if the bottom drawer is put in backwards, it wont let the door open. When I opened the main door, then the dispenser would flop open. You need a meter to check this part if its not the other things. Without it, you are just guessing.
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.
It could be a motor or a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher.
The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher.
Regarding the screwdriver adjustment- This is the rinse aid dosage adjuster. To obtain the best drying results,use the selector on setting 5. When dishes show spots, set it to a higher setting. Turn lower if dishes are cloudy.
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!
