Customer Question
Hello. I have a Miele...
Hello. I have a Miele G 843 scvi, and the intake drain light keeps flashing after the cycle gets interrupted. I have cleaned the drain inside the machine, blown air through the pipes to make sure the drain is clean. How can I now re-initialize the machine to make sure it is not a computer error?
