Question about Miele 24 in. G646SC Plus Free-Standing Dishwasher
The door on my Miele G640 will not latch. The latching 'tongue' screws came loose and it will no longer trip the door latch to close or lock the door. The latch in the door appears to work as it should, but the metal tongue hits the door beading above the actual latch in the door, when the screws have been re-tightened. It's almost as if there was shims inside the casing, above where the screws tighten the metal 'S' shape, that holds the door closed. If that were the case, the shims might have moved after the screw came loose? The metal 'S' neads to lower by a millimeter or more, to trip & engage the latch in the door.

on my machine there is a torx screw at the top left hand side. You need to open the door to see the screw which sits behind the off-white flange (look for a hole in the flange).

I switched the dishwasher off at the mains and then back on again. At this point the plastic arm started making a noise like it was trying to retract so I pulled the door to help it along. The door opened and the arm fully retracted - much to my relief.

If the detergent cup doesn't open, check the detergent cup,
the bi-metal switch or wax motor, and the timer. Make sure that no
dishes are blocking it from opening.
The cup that holds the detergents can get caked and gooped up with old detergent. You should try to clean away any old detergent. If you can't clean the detergent away, you should replace the cup.
The bi-metal switch is activated by the timer and is an electrically operated device that bends when electricity is applied to it. It uses two different metals that are bonded together. As they warm up, they expand at different rates causing the metal to bend. The degree of bending can be set with a high degree of precision. Many devices use the bi-metal switch. A lot of newer dishwashers use a wax motor instead of the bi-metal switch. The wax motor has a wax block that gets heated up when the timer sends electricity to it. The wax expands as it gets heated up, and it pushes a plunger that opens the detergent door. Depending on how your dishwasher is wired, the switch may be wired through the motor circuitry or through the heating element. If the heating element is broken, there will be no electricity to properly activate the switch or heat the wax block in the wax motor to open the cup. If the motor doesn’t let enough electricity through its circuit, the bi-metal switch won't operate properly, or the wax motor wax block won't get heated up to expand and push the plunger.
On many dishwashers, an actuator arm links the timer to the detergent cup. When the timer reaches the correct time of the cycle, it activates a lever that opens the cup. If this link is broken or in any other respect faulty, the cup will stay closed, and won't let the detergent into the dishwasher. Check this linkage and either fix or replace it.

We removed the front door. Where the latch is located, there was a white piece with a pin sticking out and a cross bar that was held in place by the white piece. We used a screwdriver to open a space in the white piece so that the cross bat could slip out the bottom of the white piece. Then, we could push from behind on the metal part that had the pin. The metal part rotated and released the latch. We then replaced the cross bar into the white piece. Be careful -- the solution worked to unlatch the latch, but our diswasher still doesn't close well during the wash cycle.
