I own a Miele G977 Plus dishwasher. There is what looks like a vent at the top left corner of the door. During the course of a wash a noise that sounds like a fan comes from this vent. Whwn the wash is complete and I open the door of the dishwasher water flows out of the vent onto my kitchen floor. What is the problem and how do I rectify it. Tom


Hi Tom, welcome to Fixya.\015\012\015\012The issue is likely just the blower and housing drain hose blocked with "crude" from time & use. If you take the door panel off ( watch those edges they are VERY sharp ) and unfasten the control panel as well ... Dishwashers

I live in the country and have mice problems in the winter. I found a mouse inside my dishwasher; it crawled back out through a small vent on the left side wall of the dishwasher. What is this vent for? Can I seal it up without a problem?


The vents are to allow air circulation around the motor when they are built in to hatches. It would not be wise to seal any of the vents. You could of course apply flywire to them with some silicon to prevent entry, ensuring mouse IS on the outside a ... Maytag Dishwashers

Dishwasher leak I have a General Electric Potscrubber Mobile Maid dishwasher (model GSC720?) that hasn't been used in some time, but appears to still work OK. It has a leak from the left hand vent opening in the bottom of the door when operating. The seal around the door appears intact and doesn't leak. Can you suggest a probable cause, and remedy? Thanks, Bob.


With dishwasher empty and disconnected, find the screws around the area of the "vent",you may need to open it from the bottom. There will be a hose that has either ruptured or just needs the clamp tightened with a screw driver. I think that the hose ... Dishwashers

I just purchased a Kitchenaid dishwasher model #KUDS30FXSS. My contractor is now installing the cabinets and brought to my attention that the venting on this dishwasher (which is in the front on the left hand side) has been known to warp cabinets. This does make sense to me considering that you are exhausting steam onto wood. Has anyone else heard of this happening or is there a fix for it?

Dishwasher leaking Our dishwasher all of a sudden started leaking. I've taken the front panel off the door and can see exactly where. It's not a hole or anything...it's at the front, left edge of the basin, the bottom left corner at the front. It seems that right after it fills with water, it starts to leak once water is moving around inside and washing cycle starts. It is as if big waves are being pushed to the front left corner and over the lip of the basin. I don't think the water level is to

Towards end of dishwashing cycle error code comes up and consitently beeps, can not turn off by machine buttons or reset. We have to reset by power plug. Water is left in bottom of macine, dishwashing powder is left on most things. Rinse button then works, it then drains the machine no problem. So I dont think it is the pump.
