Question about Miele 24 in. G646SC Plus Free-Standing Dishwasher
The wash motor does not run. Water fills the base of the dishwasher and after that the Inlet/Drain light flashes. If you restart the machine, it first drains the water and then refills it before flashing the Inlet/Drain light again.
There is no problem with the inlet or outlet. I have checked to see if any of the pipes are blocked and there seems to be no problem there. I haven't removed the main pump to see if it is jammed - is this likely? Or is it something else?
Wordhog: Does sound like a siezed wash pump to me. Wash motor needs to run to get the correct level of water.
To drain a Miele dishwasher, start the machine on a cycle. All the Miele range of dishwashers drain before filling. Then hold in the start button until the end/finish light is lit. Keep doing this until all the water has gone. You could just get a jug and bail it out. Once the jug does not do the job anymore, switch to a cup, I use a very large syringe for the remaining half a litre.

Had the same issue Tech came open bottom filter trap then insert a metal tool to what he said was a stuck impeller then cycled the dishwasher everything worked. Now 6 months later same issue tried a few times to duplicate with no luck. Wish I had that tool he had.
