Hi,

Have found this forum a wealth of useful information but I am looking for some info prior to me lugging a Miele dishwasher out of it's very tight built-in home!

I had encountered the inlet light coming on and after the usual checks (waterproof unit/drain pump - all clear and functioning) I took off the bottom panel and found the leak float had tripped due to water in the bottom tray.

Having reset the float (by moving it somewhere dry!) I ran the machine and can see dripping from the bottom of the pipe going into the large plastic unit on the bottom right. Although this pipe has clamps either end the water leak appears to be coming from above and running down the pipe. The "above is out of site somewhere on the extreme right of the unit.

Before extracting the machine from it's cabinet I wonder if anyone has a service manual to help me locate where the leak might be. Also any hints for moving the machine forward out of it's cabinet. It sits on what look like lightweight plastic "runners" with adjustable feet at the front and screw cable devices extending to what I guess are adjustable feet at the back?

I have attached photos of the bottom panel area (leak is on the right side) and the pipe which the water is leaking down from further above.

Thanks

They will commonly leak from the seal in the motor, but up on the side of the unit where your picture was taken there is a chamber for directing water through softener etc. - no access to anything without removal of unit - turn legs and skiis up and slide out, may or may not have to remove inlet depending on hookup

I eventually sorted it out - the leak was coming from the little pump (with the yellow connector) A washer had become calcified and wasn't sitting well. I cleaned the washer but this didn't improve the leak but the addition of a similar washer of half the thickness did the trick.

On the photo you can also see what looks like limescale plus other grunge build up in the plastic vessel. Is there any way of cleaning this (kettle descaler?) to avoid future blockages - I suspect replacing the plastic unit would be a very expensive Miele spare part.

Thanks

Doesn't look that bad - keep your Salt Chamber full
