Miele dishwasher showing F70. Keeps running unless I unplug…

Customer Question
Hi! Miele dishwasher showing...

Hi! Miele dishwasher showing F70. Keeps running unless I unplug it

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Miele is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Ca 2009. G 2384 SCVi

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Am hoping to. It was clogged, water wouldn't drain and showed F75. I tried to fix it, got it to drain, but now F70

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I pressed on a metal piece under the removable filter. It started the drain, but might have been a mistake

Appliance Technician: Tyler Z., Appliance Doc replied 1 year ago

To start, F70 means the washer went into flood mode. That will cause the drain pump to run constantly to prevent flooding in your house because water has worked it's way into the base pan below the dishwasher tub. You'll need to uninstall the dishwasher and tip it on it's back. Remove the screws in each corner holding the bottom access panel down. From that point you can pull the bottom access panel off and dry up all the water in the bas pan that is causing the flood condition. Now while you have the bottom off, look for a source of a leak because if the dishwasher is doing nothing but draining, there should be water in the bottom coming from somewhere causing the flood mode to occur.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here.
