our miele advent g2020sc runs a partial cycle and then begins to flash the red light "intake/drain". we have cleaned the basket and have tried to rerun it, but it still doesn't work.
Thanks for using this service. Please be logged in to rate my assistance when we are done. Rating 3-5 is good, but 1-2 is bad so talk with me first.

When it stops is there water in the unit or has it drained out?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

The water remains in the unit.

Ok you may have something jammed in the non return valve or pump. Check this link to remove and clean out that area. There may be a piece of glass or some foreign object in there. Just copy and paste the link below into your address bar.

Ok - I already did this 4 times. The only thing I didn't do was spin the flywheel. I just spun the flywheel both ways and did not find any foreign material. I have now put it back on 'short cycle' to see if this works.

I will let you know as soon as the cycle works / flashes an error message.


Stay tuned.

Ok also does it pump out water
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

We have now run the dishwasher twice without it going to the error message. I hope it is fixed. Thanks for the help.


If it gives us trouble tomorrow, I will send you another note.

Hey Appliance Guru it is me again.


Unfortunately the dishwasher isn't working. We had a couple of successful washes this week but now we are back to square one - bailing water, red lights and frustration.
