Question about Miele Advanta G2170SCVi Dishwasher
The dishwasher was making a lot of noise when draining. I removed and cleaned the non-return valve, as explained on p. 47 of the manual. The manual says you should spin the drain pump propeller before reinserting the non-return valve to make sure there are no blockages. When I tried, I could not make the propeller make a full turn. I see no debris blocking the pump

SOURCE: Intake/Drain Error
I cleaned out the drain pump and non-return valve on my Miele G658/858 and that fixed the problem. The G841 may have similar parts. It's easy to do. In order: 1. Turn off washer. 2. Remove the triple filter (the basket on the bottom of washer with the little handle. Turn the handle and remove) rinse out and set-aside. 3. Remove the standing water. I used a wet vac to remove the standing water from the bottom of the machine, but you can scoop it out also. 4. Tilt the locking clamp (tilt left) to the side. (this is a metal wire covering the white plastic valve. This valve is to the right of the triple filter basket.) 5. Pull out the non-return valve and rise will under running water. You may have to wiggle the valve a little. Pull straight up and out. 6. The drain pump is beneath the non-return valve. (it has a little plastic propeller, like a paddle wheel, inside) 7. Spin the propeller several times in both directions to make sure it's clear. ( I used the shop vac with a small hose attachment to clear the drain above the propeller compartment) 8. Carefully refit the non-return valve and secure it with the locking clamp. 9. Refit and lock the filter in place.
I haven't had a problem since and my dished are much cleaner- The problem must have been coming on for a long time.
Hope this helps,

Every Miele dishwasher is designed to drain water in the first 30 seconds of any cycle. Does your intake/drain light come on at all? Miele technical services can troubleshoot the fault code if you do get an intake/drain light.
The most common issue I have seen is that the dishwasher drain line is clogged.
Solution - Try checking the airgap at the top of your sink, if nothing there then check the end of the drain line usually connected to the garbage disposal if you have one. I would reccomend disconnecting the end of the drain line and putting it into a bucket. Let the dishwasher run for 30 seconds and if it drains then its a problem with your garbage disposal. If not I would contact Miele technical support to troubleshoot the fault code

F11 is a drain error.
Water outlet restricted.
** Check for kink in the drain hose.
** Clean the filter combination. (p.41)
** Clean the non-return valve (check valve) (p. 53)
** Check/clean the drain
Unplug the machine.
Disconnectthe drain where it enters the S bend from the sink. You may find thenozzle into the S bend is blocked. Probe it with a screwdriver andclear the blockage.
Plug in the machine and re-try.
THIS MANUAL may not be for your model - however it will give instructions on some of the steps above.
If all checks out - the pump will need replacement.
