Clean the drain by opening the door on the bottum left.
Use the yellow plastic thingy in the front of the soap drawer to do it.
You can open the machine door by pulling the yellow tag in the bottom door.
Drain the water through the filter, clean the filter and close.
Then unplug the machine and tilt it forward by about 1 foot until you see water coming out of the bottom (put towel on floor).
Plug back in and voila!
I do think that this machine is a major pain. No spin cycle and this kind of stuff to go through. Anyone want to buy mine?

Front lower left corner has an access door. Pry the access door open. Inside you will find a yellow tab that will open the machine glass bubble door. Below the yellow tab is a cca. 2.5 inch screw-in plug. Place a pan in front of the machine and unscrew to plug. Water will drain out of the machine. With the plug removed, tilt the machine forward past 45 degrees until all water has drained out. This will reset the washer. Insert the screw-in plug.

You may want to check the water valve and make sure it is all the way up where the intake line is.
The other area to check for water not draining is the lint trap. While the intake/drain fault is on the door will not open for the lint trap.
There is a release lever at the bottom of the machine (Orange in color) that is below and behind the trap door. Just pull down on the lever and that will open the trap door. You may want to put a towel under there as it will leak once the door is opened. inspect and clean the trap and try running cycle again

Intake/Drain light flashing means an issue while draining. The
dishwasher is not draining properly. Please check for air gap on the dishwasher
is not clogged. It prevents dishwasher from draining properly and sometimes the
drain flow is restricted due to gunk. Cleaning or bypassing the air gap will
resolve the issue. If this doesn't resolve the issue then it is due to seized
(or stuck) drain pump. Keep handy large bowls and towels to soak the water out.
Disconnect the power to the dishwasher or turn off the breaker to the
dishwasher. Tip machine on its back; remove screws that hold the bottom tray
on. Remove the hoses to the main motor, remove electrical connections and
switch it on. If the error still appears then turn the rotary selector switch
to "Stop/End" or press the "Start/Stop" switch for approx.
5 secs to cancel the error message. Switch the appliance off and then back on
again. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
