Hi, my Miele G1142SC has just started developing a noise when it first starts a cycle. Makes a whirring, intermittant sound - not sure if it is drain pump related? It seems to complete the cycle ok but am concerned something may be stuck somewhere. I've cleaned the filter but don't know how to access anything else. Thanks

NORMALLY WHEN A DRYER COMPLETES IT'S DRYING TIME IT WILL GO THROUGH A COOLING DOWN CYCLE,
DRYER WILL START TURNING WITH FAN ON ONLY FOR A FEW SECONDS THEN STOP, AFTER A SHORT PERIOD IT WILL DO IT AGAIN AND AGAIN UNTIL UNIT HAS COOLED DOWN, HOPE THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE EXPERIENCING
I am guessing that it does not do anything after it makes the noise?. If you hear something running after the whirring noise, but the drum is not turning it is possible the belt has broken or slipped off the motor pully. If you hear no noise after the first startup and it completely stops making any sounds then it may be a motor problem. I am no pro, just a do it yourselfer. www.repairclinic.com can help ya more than me. Just have the model number ready when you go there and look at the symptoms. Hope this helps.
I Don't have much experiance with front loaders but when you said it makes a whirring noise and won't spin leads me to believe that the coupling to the motor and transmission is bad. These are a simple rubbre coupling and they wear out over time.This is where I would look first.
There is 2 possible problems. 1. Pump will make noise as soon as the drain and spin starts. 2. Rear bearing this noise usually starts later in cycle as the drum gets up to final speed. The rear bearing of coarse is the most expensive of the two as it is part of the outer tub.
Your problem is: Just purchased a miele g1142sc dishwasher had a mate over who is a plumber and installed it. No water is coming into the dishwasher is there any safety seals on the water hose, put water into dishwasher pump is working fine.
Please take no offense but a plumber is not the same as an experieced appliance installer. Any way, your mate may have done just fine but the water line is clogged or he failed to flush the line before hooking it up and you may now have a clogged solanoid valve. Did you run the d/w a couple of times before he left? Did you confirm it working then and now it's not?
