Okay, I did some refactoring today and pushed that to GitHub. The change does require some configuration change:

  client_id: <client id received from Miele>
  client_secret: <client id received from Miele>
  lang: <either en or de>

This should expose binary_sensors and sensors as described above.

The error you were reporting should be gone because that mapping was removed for now. However, I’ve never seen a state of 10 with any of my devices, so it would in general be interesting to see what it means. But that has to wait for when that mapping gets back into the code.


Works great :+1:
Although it is adding quite some sensors and most are only interested in a few. Maybe it should be configurable which sensors are loaded like in https://community.home-assistant.io/t/writing-a-component-for-luxtronik-heatpumps?


State 10 is “On” on my dishwasher:

"state": {
    "status": {
    "key_localized": "Status",
    "value_raw": 10,
    "value_localized": "Ein"

Edit: That is when the dishwasher is just opened and the LEDs are on. When i actively turn it on, the state changes to 3: Programm choosen


Yes, it’s pretty verbose now. I think I’ll merge programType, programPhase and the device state as they seem to be tightly coupled.

Not sure about the best way to filter though. Perhaps there’s also an option to hide some sensors via the customizer…


I see that you reworked it quite a bit. Will install the newest version and test it. Yesterday the error log was flodded with the error:

2018-08-22 15:08:56 ERROR (MainThread) [homeassistant.core] Error doing job: Task exception was never retrieved

with KeyError ‘signalInfo’, ‘signalDoor’ and ‘signalFailure’.

I will observe if this happens with the new version as well.


Interesting. The responses from the cloud service are pretty static in their structure. If there was a sensor for e.g. signalInfo, that value should always be present.

Said that, it might be possible that some outage or connection error resulted in this downstream error. If so, I would suspect those errors to go away due to the recent changes.

Let me know how things go.


Hmm the error started when the devices switched from “Off” (Aus) to “Not Connected” (Nicht Verbunden) (state_raw: 255). When I manually get the data with the API the devices still show “Off”. I checked the token, it should still be valid. Do you know how this can happen? Also turning a device off didn’t change a thing, still “Not connected” but with my own API call, they work correctly.


The code polls the Miele service every five seconds. So a little bit of a delay would be expected when compared to directly calling the API. If you set the log level to debug by adding the following to your config, you should the some output whenever a request to the cloud service is made.

  default: info
    custom_components.miele.miele_at_home: debug

I did notice one device (connected via zigbee) to switch to “Not connected” from time to time, but that’s consistent with what I see in the mobile app. Plus, I’ve seen this before, so it didn’t come as a surprise.


They are “Not connected” for almost a day now and never went back to “off”. I now deleted the miele-token-cache, restarted HA, logged in into miele again and now the devices are back to “off”. I will observe this an check if this happens again (this time it happened after 18 hours after logging in).


Sounds as if the OAuth token expired. I’ll have a look later to see if this can be properly simulated. Did you see any other messages in the log? The device request should fail with Unauthorized in that case.

Also, if that happens again could you try to use the token from the cache file?


No other messages in the log. The tokens are valid for about 1 month (according to the unixtime that was in the file). Yes, next time I see this I’ll try the token from the cache file in a manual api call.


I believe token refresh should work properly now.


I also added ‘progress’ and ‘finishTime’ as attributes to status. For now, both can be extracted into distinct sensors by using a template sensor as described above.


Need to replace the custom attributes with something homegrown. But it’s a start…


Wow nice :slight_smile:
I think I know why my devices suddenly got a not connected:
I generated a new token with my other script. I guess that this token replaced the old one and therefore Home Assistant could not connect to it anymore.
Are you also planning on adding kind of “events”, like when a programm is finished? Or should this be done with automations / scripts?


Many thanks for driving this development. I have copied the files to customs_components, installed requests_oauthlib and added the following to my configuration.yaml:


  • platform: miele
    client_id: <client_id>
    client_secret: <client_secret>
    lang: en

When pressing ‘Check config’ in HA, the wait icon appears but there is never a response.

I have anyways restarted HA. It works but there is no link to Miele shown. Also, I have the following text in the log file:

File “/srv/homeassistant/lib/python3.5/site-packages/aiohttp/helpers.py”, line 462, in log

Any ideas on what can be wrong?


Setup instructions here in this thread are outdated. Please see https://github.com/docbobo/home-assistant-miele for updated instructions.

Let me know, how it goes.


Not sure if that’s really needed. When operations finish, there is already a state transition that can be observed. Or do you have a more concrete example?


Thanks! However, I don’t understand what to do differently. I cannot the difference in setup instructions?


It seems you put your config under sensors. However, it’s now a platform. Should be

lang: en

Sensors will be created automatically. Besides, please try to remove your client-id and client-secret from the original post. You might even want to ask Miele to roll them - they are supposed to be secret.
