Question about Dishwashers
When not in use, water enters and then leaks from overflow valve
Posted by Anonymous on
Tap water is routed to your dishwasher through a solenoid valve
this valve is spring loaded ,when the wash cycle needs water the solenoid is activated opening the valve and water enters when water is no longer the solenoid is deactivated and spring pressure closes the valve
in your case either some dirt has managed to stop the valve from closing completely or the valve has become in some way damaged
the quickest remedy is replacement.

You need the check the water level switch which is located on the diaphram of the water fill assembly. This is located on the laft side of your machine behind the metal panel. if this switch sticks it will not allow water into the machine

Since, the pump doesn't stop working, it sound like a water level switch issue. The switch level is usually a diaphragm device with a small clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. I am not familiar with this specific machine, but if you will open the rear panel you will find it easily. Clear tube first from any obstruction, In case it doesn't help, disconnect the wires from the unit (you should disconnect first machine's power cable !!!!!) and measure with a multi-meter on its tugs for continuity and disconnection while you are inhale and blow to its tube. In case it doesn't react, you should replace it. Good luck !

Typically the machine only uses 5-6 quarts of water, If you're floor is getting 1 or 2 quarts check for a loosly connected intake or drain hose. I've never seen any overflow drain on a Miele. It only fills the bottom of the tub. The machine uses a logic program that continuously checks the level of fill and drain by water pressure weight so it always runs with proper amount, even if your intake pressure is weak. Now, If you add too much soap then the bubbles can carry a few ounces over a worn door seal. If the seal is damaged then more spray arm water can run down the front of the machine into the float pan. But after it gets less than a pint of water the drain float will start thr drain pump and shut-off the machine controls and alert you. It won't let you run the machine until the water ( and the problem) is gone. Call Miele for help.

It looks like your inlet water valve is stuck after it powers on which means you have to replace it. If you can provide me a model and serial number of the dishwasher, I can provide you with the correct part number and a breakdown diagram. You can find the model number on the door frame of the dishwasher.

Usually the sink connection is not an overflow, it is the main drain from the dishwasher. It is more likely your s-bend is blocked under the sink- try putting a bucket under it and unscrewing the u-shaped piece and cleaning out (remember don't wash it in that sink while the pipe is off)
