F70, waterproof system activated. this means you have water in the bottom pan of the dishwasher. your miele shuts itself off and runs the drain pump continuously any time water leaking is detected. you can pull out the black plastic toe kick under the door. there is a cover panel in the center held on with two t20 screws. you can dry up the water and try to run a cycle. if it works ok, cut back on your detergent by 1/2. if it leaks again, you should probably request service from miele. if you want to try to repair it yourself, let me know and I will help you troubleshoot it further.

I had the same problem a few days ago. I followed the instructions to clean the filter and check to see that the impeller was free to rotate in both directions. The problem persisted. After reading this thread, and a similar one on another site, I tried what mikeboerma suggested in "solution #3", and bingo, problem solved. The magic combination is to push and hold the on/off button and the start/stop button.

This fault is low pump pressure. more than likely you have some foreign particles jammed in the circulation pump. you would have to remove the unit, tip it on its side and remove the bottom plate and remove the circulation pump and clear the blockage. the unit will start and stop and not work until the pump is clear.

Hi jpkenney, The vent can be replaced. If you open the door and look around the outside of the door, you will see the stainless screws that hold the top & bottom parts of the door on.( the top control section is separate to the rest of the door). Just undo the screws & there you have it. The vent can be replaced easily. Hope this helps.....goodluck.

I hope you didn't buy the new unit. But if the fan screams like a banshee then you probably have the Miele Problem. You have probably read this answer - but here it is again.

You may have the Miele problem. The line that drains the fan housing gets plugged with glop. You just take it out and clean it.

This happens every year or two. Take off the outside front panel to access the hose that runs from the bottom of the fan down to the dispenser, and lets the water drain out through it to the interior. Clean out that hose as well as you can. Replace. This is an idiotic problem that Miele should have a permanent fix for. Grrrr.

The hose cleans out quickly, the problem is getting the front back on. 4 hands make it easier. It slips on when you start close to vertical, then slip in in and down. For putting the screws back in, you might have to use a micro screwdriver to re-align the little clips on the door panel. (You will see what I mean when you do it!) This costs a service call ($100, give or take) to call for service. It can be done at home with no added parts. I think it applies to all Miele dishwashers, and I have now done it several times. As I said before, this is a design fault and should not be necessary!

If you have a helper to help contain the mess, you can spray water into the fan area (best is backward through the hose, but try all directions) and catch the runoff. We have done this and it catches a lot of gunk.muck and slop.

Doggone design sucks on an otherwise nice machine!!

Mine gives weeks and weeks (daily use) on a setting of 1 or 2. Might be a different size tank? Maybe lower the setting too. How does your glassware feel?

When ours came off (broke off actually) I just got a new one and screwed it in place. Take a look - it may be that it broke along a joint line (ours did) and you can't see that.

Load the rinse aid. Maybe also adjust the dial for rinse aid to 1 number higher.

Dunno. But you can try to run an empty load on high temperature with a cup of cooking oil in the machine. I got this from a service tech 10-15 years ago (our machine now 21) and he claimed it lubricates the seals and hinges of everything.
