What kind of grease can I buy from hardware store
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 19 days ago

it​s a silicon based grease I would suggest getting it directly from Miele if you do not have yours.

Ok I found silicone grease but I won’t risk it and just get the real deal from Miela tomorrow
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 19 days ago

sounds good do keep me posted in the event you need anything further. Also while you are at it. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged in the back too since your working on the unit just to if nothing else clean it. Have a good night .

I couldn’t get it to work. I did try cleaning the drain hose from inside with the little wire brush. I did find a oil that came with the unit and lubricated the area as instructed but it still came back with a fault 20 and now I’m taking the unit into the tech
Appliance Technician: Webb-Guy, Handyman replied 19 days ago

that should have worked. please do keep me posted as to what they say.
