Hi,

 

I have a Miele G1832 dishwasher. This morning it gave me an F70 Waterproof error. I searched online and found that I had to dry the unit from water in the bottom pan. And so I did dry it by opening it and using some towels.

 

However the error does not go away. Whenever I turn the dishwasher on, the drain pump starts working and after a few seconds it gives the F70 error.

 

I am thinking I need to clear the error. Anyone know how to enter service mode and clear the error/reset the control unit?

 

Thanks in advance,

Marios

F70 I do believe is a flood switch code. Means you have water in the pan underneath the dishwasher, not inside.  Dry it up completely by removing the toe kick and the access panel behind the toe kick, "UNPLUG OR TURN OFF BREAKER FIRST", use a thick sponge and keep soaking it up until it's dry.  Then run a cycle, if the problem reoccurs, there's a leak, call a pro.  If you have a Miele dishwasher you should be able total a service tech for the repair.

Thanks for you answer.

 

You are right (perhaps my description was not clear enough). There was indeed water in the pan underneath the dishwasher, and I did dry it up. I even found the flood switch, which is triggered by a piece of styrofoam resting on the pan and I am now pretty sure the switch is not being pressed currently. There is however some moisture still.

 

I have searched online for several hours and others say that by drying the pan underneath the dishwasher the error went away. This was on different models however. I also found people saying that the error is stored in the dishwasher memory and needs to be cleared up before the machine will resume its operation.

 

This is why I asked if anyone knows how to enter service mode and clear the error. 

 

Is it possible that the machine won't stop draining until the error is cleared?

To add some more info: the unit is currently unplugged. When I plug it in, it immediately starts draining and after a few moments the error F70 comes up. The only way to make it stop draining is to unplug it. If you plug it again the same thing happens again. It's as is it is stuck, although the flood switch is no longer being pressed.
