How to Cancel and Drain a Miele Dishwasher

The word Miele translated from German means "always better." Known for their quiet operation, the company's dishwashers are made to last more than 20 years. However, just like any other appliance, things break down at the most unexpected time. Sometimes this happens during a cleaning cycle. When repairs are necessary due to a malfunction during a cleaning cycle, it is necessary to cancel and drain the Miele dishwasher. All of this is done using the dishwasher control panel.

Step 1

Lift the door latch with your fingers and open the Miele dishwasher door slowly. The door only requires opening enough to stop the dishwasher.

Step 2

Press the "Off" button on the dishwasher control panel. This cancels the current cycle.

Step 3

Close the dishwasher door firmly until the door latch locks the door closed.

Step 4

Hold down the "Program" button until the light beside "Rinse and Hold" illuminates. Release the "Program" button and press the "On" button. This places the Miele dishwasher in a quick rinse-and-drain cycle.
