    I have same problem - open the door and there is water at the bottom of the dishwasher - when I restart program, the water drains out fine. Also, I have great water pressure coming into the dishwasher, filters are clean, etc. I am suspecting it is a circulation pump problem.

1. Unscrew air gap which is on the counter-top next to sink.
2. Unscrew drain clamp under the sink which s connected to the air gap.
3. Use a wire hanger to push down debris clogging the drain.
4. Screw clamp and air gap back in place.
5. The dishwasher should work. Routinely clean out air gap every half year.

    Where is that " air gap?
    Is it below the top cover of the dishwasher or next to the tab?

    Thanks

Intake/drain light on and cycle stops (Miele G851 SC Plus Actions: Clean out the filter at bottom of machine, then disconect the drain hose at the sink drain pipe. Clean out any visible debris. Further if you wish, use a coat hanger, make a small circle on the end using needle nose pliers, and push this gently up the drain line from under the sink end of the hose. Be careful and gentle. If any debris comes out...You've found the problem . Reconnect everything. Now also under the drain plug under the sink piping and drain it also in a bucket. Turn water on and drain further water in to the bucket. Reconnect everything, put drain plug back in and run a new dishwasher cycle. Things should be back to normal. IF YOU DID NOTICE ANY DEBRIS THRU THESE ACTIONS, THAT WAS THE PROBLEM.

My intake/drain light is on. I have run my garberator. What else should I do to try and fix the problem?


A flashing "Intake/Drain," means something is wrong. It doesn't necessarly mean, "no water coming in," or "poor drainage." But of course, we should check those things first. What are the symptons? What part of the program does the "Intake/Drain" flash?

Drain is clogged


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.

Drain intake indicator flashing. We have cleaned all but the intake filter. How do you clean or check to see if cleaning is necessary of the intake filter?


After cleaning the drain, looking at the intake (no filter on ours) and the light wouldn't go off, I just decided to take the ctrl-alt-delete approach and hit all the lower four buttons all at once, bingo, it cleared the light and machine started.

Intake/drain light is flashing


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

MY G892SCUPLUS MIELO DISHWASHER LIGHTS AND CYCLES ARE STUCK.


The rinse aid light means you are out of rinse aid. The salt light means you have to add salt to your built in water softener. If the drain/intake light is on, that is when you have a problem. It will flash when there is a problem. You have to count the flashes and that will tell you what the error is.

Intake Drain Light


My Miele Incognito dishwasher kept getting an error with intake/drain light. The light flashed 5 times. Phoned Miele Technical Support to investigate the problem. The problem is that a seal in the bottom of the dishwasher has failed and there was water in the motor pan. Currently, $175 service charge for the technician to come look at it.

I don't want to spend $175+ to have them replace a 75 cent rubber gasket that I could replace on my own.
