My Miele dishwasher model # XXXXX 843 SCVI, type HG01 will not start, when the unit is shut off for hrs I start the unit by pressing the start button. By doing this the Salt (pc) LED comes on & is steady and the cycle selector LES's, 6 of them are all off. At least one should be on so I can program my cycle So now I have machine that is dead. I even added salt yesterday
It might be the control board that is not powering up, that is what one tech told me
My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am an authorized Miele service tech and I can help you today.
If the salt light is coming on in the display then the odds are that the control board is fine.
Have you tried cleaning out the salt reservoir? Sometimes the old salt can coagulate and make a sticky paste type substance in the bottom of the reservoir. Causing the new salt added to not work.
And if the salt light has come on I would first clean out the salt reservoir then flip the circuit breaker off to the machine to power off. Dont just turn the unit off by hitting the power on/ off button. To reset the control board and main board in the machine you will need to flip the circuit off to the machine for about ten minutes then flip it back on again.
If after power the machine off for ten minutes and full cleaning out the salt in the salt reservoir and the machine still not do anything then I would like to run some other diagnostics on your machine. So please get back to me here and let me know and I will help you more.
The unit was disconnected from the outlet all night, I connected to outlet & tried to turn on, but same problem, Salt LED stays ON solid
And the salt reservoir is clean
Any tech available to discuss this problem
When will you come on line
I have to fix my dishwasher soon, please let me so I can schedule my time accordingly to stay with you
And where is this main control board located
Secondly how do disconnect the reservoir from the unit, could you point out what is holding it in place so I can dismantle to clean
I checked with Miele for the control board and the price of the new board is $525.00. The machine is 12 yrs old and I do not want to spend so much for a old machine. Is there any place I can buy a used Control board for $100 or less
Or can I re-build the board, if you know of any common problems with the board that I can tackle right away
I have the dishwasher in my garage & I have opened up all the sides
I was looking for the control board, is this like a printed circuit board, because I could not see any Board in the door
I found 2 relay in the door for the soap containers & has wiring that goes to the program lights & on/off lights but no printed circuit board
Could you please point out where the board is located
Also could you also point out where is the reservoir for salt
I have not removed the insulation on the door but I don't think anything is behind the insulation
