Question about Miele Dishwashers
The intake/drain light was flashing. I cleaned the filter ( which was clogged) but the light continues to flash and the dishwasher will not start
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 cleaned the pump (found the user's manual online) then turned the selector switch to off. When I selected a wash, it started right up.
