Question about Miele Incognito G658 SCVi Built-in Dishwasher
I have intake/drain light on. This happened shortly after starting a wash cycle; so there is some water in bottom of wash cabinet. Manual says to clean out filter in wash cabinet. Do do this it instructs me to turn counter clockwise. This does not seem to be turning. I'm fairly strong and the lever is plastic. I'm worried that the plastic handle will break if I tug on it too hard. Checked filters on ends of hoses and they seem to be fine. No evident kinks in hose either. Is there something I'm missing on removing filter?

When the water stops too soon, it could be the "over flow" is stuck in the downward position, therefore the dishwasher thinks it's going to over flow. Check that out. Otherwise I'm afraid this sounds like the circuit board is shot.

SOURCE: inlet/drain light remains on
I have the same problem on a Miele G647 SC Plus. It starts and completes the wash cycle, might skip a final rinse - not sure, but it drains the water. Pump then continues to run for extended period then inlet/outlet
light comes on. The dishwasher never moves to the drying cycle.
I cleaned all filters, checked supply/drain hoses + the non return valve. All seemed servicable. But no real improvement in fault.
Any way I can fix this?

I had the same problem with my Miele g843, and i finally got to the root problem.
My machine would drain ok, and fill ok, but when it tried to start a cycle, it would do nothing. I could hear a relay occassionally clicking until it finally gave up and signalled the blinking red light of death.
I first checked the inlet filter, drain pump and drain pipe but I discovered no obstructions. So I started taking the dishwasher apart, and discovered that the main pump was seized! This may not be the source of YOUR problem, since it could be many things, but this worked for me. Here are the instructions to remove the pump and get it moving again:
Pull out the dishwasher and disconnect the power, water and drain lines.
Empty all water from the unit (disconnect drain line and let the water drain into a low profile container) you may have to elevate the unit and tilt it rearwards to get the remaining water out.
Remove the side panels of the machine.
Lay the unit on its side elevated about 2-4 inches above the ground (be careful you don't put direct pressure on any of the internal components when you support it)
Remove the 4 screws that hold the base panel to the frame of the machine.
You can now see the motor.
Disconnect the electrical connections to the motor and the pressure sensor.
Disengage the clamps that hold the rubber hoses to the motor and slide the hoses off the motor.
Unscrew the single bolt that holds the motor inplace on the back panel of the machine. Pry the rear panel out slightly to release the dowel pins and gently pull the motor towards you (pivoting on the inlet grommet). Once you have the motor out, you can try to manually turn it by rotating the impeller. If it is stiff, you could have the same problem mine had. Using silicon spray with a nozzle extension, spray the seal between the impeller housing and the motor and continue to spin the motor manually until it becomes free spinning. If this doesnt work for you, you may need a new motor ( i never priced one out but it cant be cheap ).
If you get stuck somewhere email me and i can send you pictures: vector006 at hotmail dot com

SOURCE: Intake/Drain lit flashing
I have exact same symptons, please someone help. I have had issue before where the plumbing backed up so it overflowed into the catch tray. Then that has to be vacummed out and then just start a new cycle. This time there is no water in the overflow tray....
