20 Most Recent Miele Premier-Plus Built-in Dishwasher Questions & Answers

It is best to keep your drains clean. Simply put. If you want to clean that drain screen, you can remove it. I suggest using vinegar to sanitize it. That way you don't run the risk of wearing down the finish.

You can try to recess (push it in more) the dishwasher further under the cabinet, so the handle doesn't interfere with your adjacent drawer.

To do this, you'll have to remove the 2 screws that are located at the top of the dishwasher that secures it to the underside of the countertop.

Once you've got the screws out you should be able to slide/push the dishwasher back an inch or more, to allow clearance. It might not look the greatest asthestically, depending on how far you need to push it into the cabinet.

Otherwise, I'm not sure removal of the dishwasher handle is possible, as it's needed to open the door on this model.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

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.

This problem arises because the water inside the washer cannot get out.
Firstly......Make sure the salt cover if screwed on tightly (if you have one).
Then remove the filter(s) from bottom of the washer and clean.
Remove the drain pump cover and remove the one way valve (a ball bearing in a housing) and clean. Take note of rubber cover direction before pulling it out to clean.
Make sure the impeller (visible after you remove drain pump cover) is clean and spins ok. It will have a little resistance as you spin with your finger.
Make sure all is cleaned properly and it will all work fine again after replacing it all back in.

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

I understand you have a problem with a Miele dishwasher as you described, "seems to go through all cycles with pump going".
initially sounds like the overfill float has been activated or perhaps stuck.

**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**

You'll need to remove the service access panel (toe panel) below the door to check visually. Once you have access, inspect for any evidence of water being present.

With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.

If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump... (it could mean a faulty drain pump or a leaky inlet water valve, so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)

Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary. Good luck.

That depends on condition, price, age, price of alternatives, and so on. There is no direct answer to your question.

The fan assembly's drainage path is clogged. With time, food residue cloggs up the drainage path, inside the "Turbothermic" fan, and water accumulates during the drying cycle. The control panel, that houses the fan assembly, will need to be removed. Door panels will also need to come off. Unplug wires and drain hose to the fan, and loosen the round fan grill that secures the fan assembly (located inside the door). Take apart the fan assembly; unclogg drainage path and hose; and wash all parts. Re-assemble, install, and plug, the fan assembly, drain hose and door panels. Good Luck.
