Question about Dishwashers
I have had an ongoing problem with the intake/drain red light coming in and shutting down the cycle.I have checked the intake screen/filter and it is clean,I have also cleaned the discharge filter and dismantled the elbow check valve and used a garden hose to prove the discharge line clear.I have used draino on my own sink drain.When going through the Normal or economy or energy saver cycle it will drain the tub and then fill and go into wash cylce for about 3 minutes and then the intake/drain light comes in and it shuts down.Previously, I had the light come in and shutdown halfway through the wash and it was determined that the heater was having problems and I solved that by turning the dishwasher switch off and the dial to stop and it worked for the past year, now I have this problem. Is there anyway to reset the computer brain?? Any ideas would be appreciated. red intake/drain light comes on and shuts down the dishwasher, Miele G841 plus
I had the same problem. Switched to powder detergent instead of liquid and the problem was solved! Hope it works for you.

I have the exact same problem as goyellow. The motor(M6) does not work, It can be the capacitor(continuous duty capacitor).

Water is filling up in bottom tray due to slow leak....temporary fix will be to vacuum out with wet vac.1st remove front cover at bottom...watch electric connections....2.....for long term fix...put up on cinder blocks to locate leak, if leak persists. fix leak probably seal at pump......pump is tight though...

If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.
