Question about Miele Dishwashers
Intake/drain red light is flashing.
I had a flashing red Intake/Drain light. After calling Miele tech support, he confirmed that the drain was plugged so I took all drain hoses apart and finally discovered that the problem was a plugged air gap. I replaced it and the problem was solved.

Remove the screen over the drain. Clean it out. Replace the impeller if necessary.

When this happens with my dishwasher it usually means that the drain is clogged with food/debris. To fix 1) remove bottom dish rack from machine 2) using a small cup, scoop out as much water as possible 3) remove inlet drain cover and unsnap the plastic insert and remove 4) rinse the plastic part and reinstall 5) start machine 6) if light still flashes, repeat steps 3 4 and 5 and restart

I have (had) the exact same problem with my Miele. Here is what (appears) to have fixed it:
1) Disconnect the inflow line at the water source. Its the connection that looks like a garden hose. Use a screw driver to remove the washer inside, the pull out the little filter with needle nose pliers. My was clogger with particles from the washer. Clean with soap and a tooth brush.
2) Disconnect the outflow line at the garbage disposal. My was moderately clogged with food (Note: my son overfilled the garbage disposal before running. It may have backed up).
This worked for now at least. Remeber, as irritating as red lights can be, it prevents the motors and pumps from burning out when you have clogged plumbing.

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....
