Resolved Question:

I have a Miele G894SC Touchtronic Dishwasher. The intake/drain light has come on. I don't know how to fix it, and I am not sure which part is the intake/drain.

intake/drain light only means that there is an error nothing more.

cancel the cycle out and start a new cycle--- Listen to what it's doing closely.

It should first drain for about 30 seconds
Next, it should fill with water CONTINUOUSLY WITHOUT PAUSING for about 2 minutes.
Then it should start pushing the water around and washing

Tell me if anything is different from what I mentioned above.

I tried to stop the cycle that was going. I even emptied the machine, as most of the dishes were clean. When I put in a new load, but the machine is continuing the first load. The light is still on.

Turn the circuit breaker off or unplug the dishwasher to restart it.

I unplugged and plugged in the machine. It didnot stop the cycle or the intke light.

ok that is not good, how long did you unplug it for? Try unplugging for 60 seconds. If it doesn't reset it then the error is in your control board and the control board will need to be replaced.
