After working correctly for a time, my Saeco Easy now has the wrong sequence. When I push the button, it grinds a little (sometimes not at all) dispenses, then grinds again! It's been doing this for about 6 months.

It might be a question of age. The Saeco has a ceramic grinder (instead of steel), and this may simply have worn down over time with use. Is it more than a couple of years old?
If it is older, then you can either accept this, restarting the grinding several times; or you can send it in for servicing. (Be aware that a brief look on Google revealed that there are some people who are very unhappy with Saeco's service department!) Besides sending it to Saeco, there are quite a few other authorized service centers. Just Google "Saeco Easy Espresso service".
If it's not that old - and you're still covered by warranty - then you should contact Saeco.
Finally, don't necessarily trust the red light. I would visually examine the grind, and count how many seconds of grinding it takes before your grind looks & feels right. If this works for you, you can just put a piece of black tape over the light & ignore it, and run your grind for however long it takes to meet your satisfaction.
Push and hold the coffee button you want to program. Do not release this button. It will grind, click 3 times, the the brew unit will cycle up and start to dispense water. When you get the amount of coffee you want for this button, then release the button and its programed. If the button is held more than 3 seconds, it will reset to zero water. Reprogram again.
Try reprogramming the machine. Push and hold the button for the coffee you want, but hold it all the way through the process. Don't release the button until you get the amount of coffee you want for that button, then release the button. That should get you the same amount next time. You can do this for each coffee button.
If that doesn't fix it, then you might need a new flow meter.
