My Miele G 842 SC has the red PC light flashing and will not

Resolved Question:

My Miele G 842 SC has the red PC light flashing and will not turn on. We never use salt as our water does not require salt. I had a new pump installed March 12 - Machine ran fine until this morning.

How old is the unit?
Please turn off the circuit breaker off and wait 5 minutes.
Then turn it back on, press and hold the cancel button.
Please let me know if this has any effect.
Thank you

I turned off breaker and have to wait the 5 minutes. This is a G842 SC Plus unit that is 7 years old. It does not have a "cancel" button - just the Onn/Off and Start with rotary selection.

That is an indication that the drain pump needs to be replaced.
