Miele G1143SCU consumes a lot of rinse-aid, how to clean dispense valve?

Try putting vinegar in the rinse dispenser for a few cycles. Monitor the level of vinegar in the dispenser and see if it goes back to normal consumption.

Miele dishwasher red inlet light flashes

This is most probably a software glitch. I had the same issue a week ago and my dishwasher is only about 2 yrs old and only gets used on average once a fortnight.

At first I did everything as the manual shows in the troubleshooting section. The whole process takes only about 5 to 15 minutes depending on how good of a handyman you are.

When I cleaned all the parts involved (all pretty clean to start with anyway) and connect them all back, sadly the red light wouldn't go.
It looked like I was stuck with the most hated option I had left: call the dreaded technician and be prepared to depart with some hard-earned cash.

Before doing that and out of desperation, I decided to surf the net for clues, blogs, forums, etc... and on one of them I found my answer.
One blogger suggested that "if anything else fails, try the 'reset' step" which means pressing at the same time the On/Off button and the Start/Stop button. That operation put a big smile on my face (and my wife's face too) as the red light magically disappeared.

My suggestion is "first try the reset trick and if that fails try and clean the parts as the manual shows". It'll save you headaches because the reset would do the trick in 90% of cases.

I work in IT and I can understand the fact that a software malfunction would trigger the red light and not reset it.

Good luck.

The END, START/STOP & TOP SOLO all flash at same time Miele g892sc

I have a G851sci dishwasher. I finally found what the issue was when the End, Top Solo, and Start LEDs flash on and off randomly. It has to do with the wash cycle selector knob. This knob is connected to a 12-position rotary switch mounted on the circuit board inside the control panel. The problem is that the switch contacts are oxidized and are not making good contacts. So to fix this, you have to remove that circuit board from inside the control panel. I won't go into details on how to do that but once you have it out, you'll see the rotary switch made by Seuffer, a German electronics company that no longer exists as Seuffer. Luckily, this rotary switch can be taken apart without removing it from the board. There are four clips that must be bent out to remove the top part. Once you have this open, take a very fine 600 grit or higher sandpaper and remove the oxidation from all the metal contacts that are in there. Do the same for the wiper on the knob side that you pulled off. Once that's done, use a cotton swab with alcohol to remove dust and debris from the inside amd off the contacts. Now simply reassemble everything. This issue should now be gone. This issue is related to F03 fault code. The service manual, which you can find somewhere off the web, explains how to extract the fault codes from your machine. Hope this helps.

Dishwasher - Miele g858scvi plus

Miele dishwashers, including the G858SCVI Plus model, typically do not have an internal fuse accessible for user replacement. However, there are a few fixes you can try to address the power issue:
  1. Check the power supply: Ensure that the dishwasher is securely plugged into a functioning power outlet. If possible, try plugging another appliance into the same outlet to verify that it is providing power.
  2. Reset the circuit breaker: Locate the circuit breaker in your home's electrical panel that corresponds to the dishwasher. Turn the breaker off, wait for a few minutes, and then turn it back on. This can help reset the electrical connection.
  3. Check the door latch: Make sure the dishwasher door is closing properly and that the door latch is engaged. If the door is not fully closed or the latch is not engaged, the dishwasher may not receive power.
  4. Examine the control panel: Inspect the control panel for any signs of damage or malfunction. Look for loose or disconnected wires or any visible issues. If you notice any problems, it may require professional service or replacement of the control panel.

Miele dishwasher G 5023 SC has fault code F 179 can't find any answers on line can anyone help. It washes dishes ok. Fault appears at end of programme am thinking drain hose?

The F179 fault code on a Miele dishwasher usually indicates an issue with the drainage system. Here are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot and potentially resolve the issue:
  1. Check the Drain Hose: Start by inspecting the drain hose for any kinks, clogs, or blockages. Ensure that the hose is properly connected and not damaged in any way. If you find any issues, clear the blockage or replace the hose if necessary.
  2. Clean the Filters: Remove and clean the filters inside the dishwasher. Accumulated debris in the filters can hinder proper drainage. Rinse the filters under running water to remove any food particles or residue.
  3. Check the Drain Pump: The drain pump is responsible for removing water from the dishwasher during the drain cycle. Make sure the drain pump is free of any obstructions. You can access the drain pump by removing the bottom panel of the dishwasher. If you find any debris or blockage, remove it carefully.
  4. Ensure Proper Installation: Verify that the dishwasher is installed correctly, including the drainage system. Ensure that the drain hose is properly connected to the drain pipe and that there is no obstruction in the plumbing system.
  5. Reset the Dishwasher: Try resetting the dishwasher by turning off the power at the circuit breaker for a few minutes. Then, turn the power back on and run a test cycle to see if the fault code clears.

Miele g638 plus dishwasher not draining

5/8/2023 10:07:29 AM • Miele... • Answered on May 08, 2023

Miele dishwasher says F11 but drain is still running.

I had this problem. The manual says to restart the machine and see how it goes. The fault is intermittent. I believe it is due to the non-return ball getting stuck due to swelling of the non-return valve seal. This generates a high pressure which the machine detects as a fault. Miele video show how to remove and replace the valve. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqhq8n4GMlA My non-return valve parts are heat welded together on one side. Other youtube videos show two parts. The heat weld can be broken by bending the two parts apart. It is clear the ball is "stuck" if you try to push it up from the bottom and clear the black rubber has swelled due to water absorption which is common with black EPDM rubber over time. So I trimmed the "shoulders" off the rubber seal (marked on pics) with scissors to pinch off a little part of the edges where the ball pushes past when water flows. The ball resistance to unseating is much lower the the machine behaves like normal now. Can't find any pics of the 05750095 part inside to see if Miele redesigned it or changed the seal material. My part 05750093. (Pics won't upload here for some reason, despite meeting size/format requirements.) See googl photos: https://photos.app.goo.gl/9nrC31d2QG4hshEQ6 To fix for longer, need to replace the non-return valve seal. The part number on the seal is 0575012. The non-return valve complete part number is listed at the Miele website: 05750095. Non-return valve for dishwashers. Protection against water flowing back into the wash cabinet; for G1xxxG6xxx.

My Miele S685 Dishwasher runs for good half an hour then shuts off and I have to turn it off and back on.. continuously. It was plugged, it's been serviced. Did I blow a thermal fuse.

Question edited for clarity, "runs for half a house" add CAPS. :>) Call the service guy back. He should have stayed to see it through a full cycle. Not a thermal fuse issue as that would stop it working altogether. It is likely to be a control board issue.

I have a miele dishwasher that has water inside under the door is this normal

If it is just a little condensation and not pooling around the bottom, then it is normal and nothing to worry about.
