Having problems with your Miele Dishwashers ?

My miele g680 dishwasher did have a flashing intake/drain I cleaned it seemed to be working fine, then everytime I try to start it the softener light comes on with no further washing activity.

\015 The intake/drain light came on, I cleaned the drain seemed to work fine, then the same light came on. I again cleaned the drain only this time when I went to start the unit the softener light came on. Now the unit just sits with the softener light on. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

That is just an indicator that your salt is low. it will stay on until you refill the water softener with softener salt. it will not affect the dishwasher to run it without the salt. the water for your final rinse will not be softened.

Model KUDS30FXSSO, Unit attempts to start. Blue light on the front of the door comes on indicating the cycle is starting. Pump runs a few seconds as normal. Then the maching sounds like it trying to start the next step three or four times. The blue light goes out. The washing cycle then switches to cancel/drain, ( I opened the door to see which control lights were on.) runs the drain pump then stops. The green light on the front panel does not come on indicating the cycle was completed.

Water softener Salt residue remains on the dishes. The water softener is going throught salt like crazy. I fill the salt and make sure that the light is off before I start the cylce. Within the first 20-45 mins the salt light comes on again and the dishes will not wash properly. We have come to the conclusion that the salt is being distributed to quicky but cannot figure out why the light keeps coming on. The switch inside the cap for the salt is set a the min.

After a power outage, that occured while the dishwasher was running, the lights come on and there is a high pitched noise. Then all the lights go off and the motor sounds like it is starting. However there is no water and the heating elemant comes on. The lights on the front; china/crystal, normal wash, clean and heated dry, all come on as if the computer is confused and trying to run them all simultaneously.

Hi, I have a Miele G638 Plus dishwasher and the Red Inlet/Drain light comes on shortly after the wash cycle starts. I have cleaned everything out and the impellor moves freely. I have also made sure the outlet is clear. I have tried resetting and repeating on different washing cycles but it always locks out after the washing cycle starts. Could this be a heater problem as the element looks quite corroded? I have had side panels off and the water appears to flow easily through the sid

The three lights for Pots & Pans, Normal Wash, Econo Wash are all flashing. When I hold the start button down for four seconds, just the Normal light is on. However, once I close the door, all three lights are on again, and the dishwasher does not start. We have tried unpugging it and then plugging it in again. It worked once then went back to all three light flashing. Before this, only the Normal Wash and Econo Wash lights were flashing.

The touchpad buttons no longer work to select a wash cycle. When I push "Start" the light above "Smart Wash" comes on and the dishwasher operates normally, but I cannot select any other cycles and the light only comes on after pressing "Start", not before. Also, the Options buttons seem to work normally but the delay button doesn't scroll through 2-4-6, it only toggles the light on and off above "4". The item is 15 months old. Thank you.

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!
