Question about Miele 24 in. Novotronic G851SC Plus Built-In Dishwasher
I have had an ongoing problem with the intake/drain red light coming in and shutting down the cycle.I have checked the intake screen/filter and it is clean,I have also cleaned the discharge filter and dismantled the elbow check valve and used a garden hose to prove the discharge line clear.I have used draino on my own sink drain.When going through the Normal or economy or energy saver cycle it will drain the tub and then fill and go into wash cylce for about 3 minutes and then the intake/drain light comes in and it shuts down.Previously, I had the light come in and shutdown halfway through the wash and it was determined that the heater was having problems and I solved that by turning the dishwasher switch off and the dial to stop and it worked for the past year, now I have this problem. Is there anyway to reset the computer brain?? Any ideas would be appreciated.

Tips for a great answer:
If the washer is turning off mid cycle then the problem most likely has something to do with the draining or the filling.
First check the drain hose is not to far down the standpipe. If it is to far down then the water might siphon out during fill. The water would fill and drain at the same time. One cycle I would like you to try is the "Rinse Only" cycle. This is a simple, short cycle that should just fill once, drain and spin. If the washer will do this then the major components are most likely okay.
Make sure the water drains out and let me know if the drain pump is the source of the noise you hear.

The same, I have also checked the drain. Everyrthing seems to be clean.
