Help with how to use properly a dishwahser.

Hello i have a Miele Advanta dishwasher, i must say first that i never had a dishwasher before maybe thats what my problem is, but anyways.....when i try to use it, what i do first is turn it on put on Economy cyrcle and close the dishwasher and after an about 2 mins. the beeping always comes on, what does that means?? Does it mean it finished washing after 2 mins or less?? and i always see a red light flashing where it says Intake/Drain, what does it mean?? I tried to resolve by giving my dishwasher a few hard kicks and i must say it usually works. Pleaseeee help!!!!! before i break my dishwasher. Thanks

You either have a blocked drain or pump or check to see if the water tap is turned on. It means that either the water wont pump out or fill with water. Good luck

Miele g2020 dishwasher will not stop 'running' even when power is off

The circuit board in the panel has been compromised. It may need replacing and if so, that should be done by a profession technician. You may try to pull the power plug from the wall socket, let the machine rest for a few minutes, and then replace the cord once again. Restart the machine from the panel control on/off button or switch. If it did a reset, your in business. If Not the circuitboard has a problem.

Miele Advanta dishwasher beeping

The end of a program and faults can be
announced by a buzzer tone.
The buzzer at the end of a program
sounds five times in intervals with a
brief break in between. The buzzer
sounds up to one hour if the
dishwasher is not turned off.
The buzzer for a fault sounds
continuously. The buzzer sounds for up
to two minutes if the dishwasher is not
turned off or the fault is fixed.
The buzzer is activated by default. It
can be set to off, so it does not sound
at the end of a program. The buzzer for
a fault cannot be set to off.

^ Turn the dishwasher off o.
^ Press the program button and at the
same time turn the dishwasher on g.
Hold the program button until the
lower right program indicator comes
If it does not come on, start over.
^ Press the program button briefly four
The "Intake/Drain" indicator flashes 4
times in intervals.
The upper right program indicator
shows if the program end buzzer is
turned on or off.
- Upper right program indicator
flashes: Buzzer is turned on
- Upper right program indicator is off:
Buzzer is turned off
it is not easy to disable the buzzer. you have to hold the buttons down exactly the way it tells you to in the manual. you also have to pay attention to the lights and make sure they are flashing the proper sequences. try it two or three times. you will eventually get the hang of it. not sure where you live, but the miele techs have a computer that allows them to disable the beeper if you are unsuccessful. the proceedure is copied below.

^ To change the setting, press the
program button until the
"Intake/Drain" indicator lights.
^ Press the program button briefly
three times.
The setting is saved.
