Question about Miele Optima G2470SCVi Built-in Dishwasher
When we try to run the dishwasher, it starts beeping and the intake/drain light goes on. please help! thank you!
Please check the INLET water pressure, remove the inlet and check. Now if there is pressure make sure that when the power is pressed there is a pre wash cycle to start the machine. If not there is fault in the program controller , please check the door switch and the panel board.

In the user manual there's a section on how to clean the non-return valve. It's the plastic piece under the wire below the triple filter. Why did you pull out the machine? Did you kink the drain hose? If you don't find a clogged valve, spin the impeller wheel several times. It's under the valve inside the bottom hole where the valve came out.
Now here's the important step- Reset the fault! Power off/on the unit. If the light blinks when you turn it on, Press and hold the start button 4 seconds with the door open. Find the combination of off/on buttons to press to reset the machine in the user manual.
(Note: If the machine runs continuously as soon as you pressed on the power button, then you have water under the unit in the safety pan. Call Miele for help.) Now select the normal wash cycle close the door and start it. The drain motor always runs first. This verifies to the brain how much water is inside the machine when it starts filling. The drain pump runs for half a minute. If you hear it running with no drain check the drain hose especially if it's connected to a disposal. Clean the disposal.. If it's not running at all the light will go on again before filling, call Miele. If the machine fill up with fresh water, the drain works. Watch and listen when the light comes on. Is it filling or did it start circulating? Open the door, are the baskets are dripping wet? Then it filled and circulated. If the light comes on several miutes later then call Miele.

SOURCE: Intake/drain light flashing
I have (had) the exact same problem with my Miele. Here is what (appears) to have fixed it:
1) Disconnect the inflow line at the water source. Its the connection that looks like a garden hose. Use a screw driver to remove the washer inside, the pull out the little filter with needle nose pliers. My was clogger with particles from the washer. Clean with soap and a tooth brush.
2) Disconnect the outflow line at the garbage disposal. My was moderately clogged with food (Note: my son overfilled the garbage disposal before running. It may have backed up).
This worked for now at least. Remeber, as irritating as red lights can be, it prevents the motors and pumps from burning out when you have clogged plumbing.

sounds like the flood mode is in operation, you may have a leak into the base stopping the wash continuing. pump out the water, then tip the unit at about 45 degrees and see if any water pours out of the base- confirming a leak.

this is a general fault light which could mean anything without a Miele Technician coming out and connecting a laptop to the unit. However most common faults with dishwashers is a drain fault. Check for any kinked hoses and check the drain spigot under the sink where the drain hose connects into the u bend. Usually this is where food gets trapped due to the spigot not being drilled out large enough. This then causes a blockage. Also check the non return valve under the filter and make sure the drain pump can turn freely.
Hope this helps.

On another site, someone posted this: "I called (website), where it was purchased from, and they gave me the number for the manufacturer. Some standard troubleshooting did the trick and my dishwasher is working perfectly again. The troubleshooting involved tilting the dishwasher backwards at a 45-degree angle and letting any excess water drain out. They said ocassionally the water intake will be blocked and this process helps move anything that may have gotten in the way"
I was having the beeping problem too, and decided to give it a try, tipped it for a few, and found it to work!!! Hope this maybe helps!
