Miele G572 Empty pump is
Hello, welcome to FixYa.
I understand you have a problem with a Miele dishwasher as you described, "seems to go through all cycles with pump going". initially sounds like the overfill float has been activated or perhaps stuck.
**before proceeding turn the dishwasher power off via the home breaker panel, or unplug it from the wall if that is possible...most are hard wired to the home electrical...safety first**
You'll need to remove the service access panel (toe panel) below the door to check visually. Once you have access, inspect for any evidence of water being present.
With the aid of a sponge, towels, or a wet-dry shop vacuum, absorb the water from the base, that should restore normal operation...it should be known that if you leave the unit for a few days, the water in the base will evaporate hence appearing as everything is fine again...if any other problem/leak does exist it will return.
If the unit works fine after resetting the power/breaker and soaking up any water present, it can likely be chalked up to a drain back-up or obstruction in the drain hose or pump... (it could mean a faulty drain pump or a leaky inlet water valve, so you'll need to pay close attention the next few times you run it)
Hope this helps move you forward, or even better resolves the issue altogether. Let me know of course, I will help you move further if necessary. Good luck.
