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 had this problem at home too, it turned out to be a kink in the water outlet pipe. I straightened out the kink in the pipe, put duct tale around it to strenghten it and the dishwasher has been working perfectly since.

That means the control sensed that the heater in the d/w did not operate 3 times in a row. so the unit locks out. First remove the kick plate and you may have to pull the unit out from under the cab, but check your heater. use a meter to see if it reads open, if so order a heater assy it will come with a new control replace it to. If your heater checks good press in sequence normal wash , heat dry ,normal wash,heat dry , normal wash , heat dry three times within 6 sec all the lights will come on then hit cancel. What that did is reset the control and clear that fault. Keep in mind that d/w does not heat it's own water your incoming water temp should be 120. the d/w will maintain that temp. when starting your d/w first turn on your hot water till it gets hot then start your d/w this insures your unit fills with hot water and not cold
