Hopefully someone familiar with these dishwashers can help. Our 3 year old dishwasher has stopped working AGAIN!
About a year ago, we had a problem....and $300 later it was 'fixed'. I'm trying to avoid another service call.

intake/drain light comes on less than a minute after starting. no water enters machine, though when non return valve is opened, about a cup of flows into the bottom. All filters were cleaned.

Called Miele and they had me go through the fault program, where the f 70 fault appeared. Rep said it was probably due to using too much soap. They said they'd schedule a service person to come out but that company called to say they don't service my area. Before I call again, and potentially have to wait a week or more for a rep to come, I want to see whether there is actually water or soap in the bottom 'pan'. I purchased a torx screwdriver and took off the skirt cover. I read that i now need to remove the center panel. I've taken out those screws but don't know how the panel comes off or lifts. Any ideas?
thank you!

First thing you should hear is the drain pump running - if there was water in the lower pan the drain pump would run continuously. Check for obstruction where the drain hose is connected to your drain plumbing.

What was the issue/resolve a year ago ?

Thanks kdog. Yes drain pump did run for a while, then stopped with consistant beep. Checked the drain hose, cleaned out white filter inside...no obstructions.

How do I open the panel underneath unit.

Nope - you have to remove and tip the unit to access anything - if you have an F70 the drain pump will continue to run until unit is unplugged - even if you turn it off.
If you start the machine, describe the series of events until the intake/drain light flashes.
Some of these had an issue with the water meter circuit board located on the l.h. side of unit about halfway up under the cabinet panel. Again, has to be pulled out to access (see a pattern here) - You never did say what occured a year ago .......
