Question about Miele Optima G2470SCVi Built-in Dishwasher
I have a miele optima series that has a fault code of f70 and the drain pump keeps running after the door is open. Nothing else is working. Can i fix this?
Yes. F70 is a flood in the base of the unit which activates the float switch and constantly activates the drain pump until the water has gone. Isolate the unit at the power switch and remove the bottom panel under the door panel. Dry up the water as best possible with a towel. You will see the float at the front. Run the unit again and check for any water leaks. You may just have over sudded the unit with too much detergent. Only use 2 teaspoons of powder. To start with while testing don't use any detergent. Good luck
Hope this helps.

I had the f70 code and took off the bottom pan. Looked all round and could see where the water was coming from. Then I noticed a small silver stick that I'm guessing is the temperature sensor. It has some how come loose and must have been pushed back thought the seal in the bottom of the dishwasher from the inside when I was cleaning a blockage. Pushed it back through, screwed everything back and it s now working fine.

I have the same problem. Have opened the front as you suggested and soaked up the water that was pushing the float disc up but when running the machine (without detergent), water reappears down below. Any idea on possible causes of water getting in? What should be my next steps?

Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. The
dishwasher is not draining properly. Please check for air gap on the dishwasher
is not clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining properly and sometimes the
drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will
resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized
(or stuck) drain pump. Keep handy large bowls and towels to soak the water out.
Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the
dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray
on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections and
switch it on. If the error still appears then turn the rotary selector switch
to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx.
5 secs to cancel the error message. Switch the appliance off and then back on
again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
