I have the same dishwasher and it will not INTAKE water. This unit does ****. So much for a "smart dishwasher".

In the user manual there's a section on how to clean the non-return valve. It's the plastic piece under the wire below the triple filter. Why did you pull out the machine? Did you kink the drain hose? If you don't find a clogged valve, spin the impeller wheel several times. It's under the valve inside the bottom hole where the valve came out.
Now here's the important step- Reset the fault! Power off/on the unit. If the light blinks when you turn it on, Press and hold the start button 4 seconds with the door open. Find the combination of off/on buttons to press to reset the machine in the user manual.
(Note: If the machine runs continuously as soon as you pressed on the power button, then you have water under the unit in the safety pan. Call Miele for help.) Now select the normal wash cycle close the door and start it. The drain motor always runs first. This verifies to the brain how much water is inside the machine when it starts filling. The drain pump runs for half a minute. If you hear it running with no drain check the drain hose especially if it's connected to a disposal. Clean the disposal.. If it's not running at all the light will go on again before filling, call Miele. If the machine fill up with fresh water, the drain works. Watch and listen when the light comes on. Is it filling or did it start circulating? Open the door, are the baskets are dripping wet? Then it filled and circulated. If the light comes on several miutes later then call Miele.

This happened to me and I noticed there was about 4 inches of dirty water that hadn't drained from the dishwasher. I took out all of the water, cleaned the filters and then started the dishwasher again. It worked. Good Luck.

Thx for all the tips. Combining your thoughts provided a solution for me.
I had the same problem (with a ***** of thanksgiving dishes to do). Turn on,
tries to drain, then that RED blinking "INTAKE/DRAIN" light, like you described.
Spent hours, checking/clearing the (grey) drain hose (The other white hose is the water input to the dishwasher). Also took out metal filter, impeller cover, poked a coat hanger in both ways to/from the drain hose connection. All seemed clear. But still the same.
But when I unhooked the grey drain hose from the air gap unit (that part going to the 4th hole in the sink surface), the dishwasher worked fine. So the air gap unit seemed plugged. The black hose from the garbage disposal to the air gap unit is free flowing (blew through it - yuch!). But the drain connection through the air gap unit was NOT as free flowing.
Replaced it with a new air gap unit ($5.00 at Home depot).
All works fine now. I feel I got lucky.
Well this worked for me. Sorry for all of you who spent big bucks with no solution on those service guys that tried but did not help. I hope this helps some of you.

I had the same problem and I was able to fix it by trying to reset the machine. You push the on/off button for 5 seconds to reset and then disconnect the machine. I also check the drain for clogs. I found that the problem is with the water sensor on the drain. it is telling the controller that there is water in the drain so the impellers keep turning to flush the system. I pour CLR solution into the drain and let it sit for a few hour and then plug in the machine. It is working fine now.

check if the drain hose is not clogged and try to clean it as it can be that
the hose is clogged and the water is not draining properly. After that check if
the drain pump filter is fine and not clogged, try to clean that as well. After
this check the metal filter, impeller cover and the air gap unit. After checking this you can
reset the error as follows: turn the rotary selector switch to "Stop/End" or
press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx. 5 secs. Then switch the
appliance off and then back on again. Hope
this helps...please post back for further assistance.
