Question about Dishwashers
My dishwasher was working perfectly fine until a few days ago it just wouldn't turn on. We checked the breakers, the plugs & even took out & cleaned the filters.
Called Miele but with the cost of their service calls + parts and the fact that this dishwasher was manufactured in '97 (I think), it might be cheaper to just buy a new (less expensive) dishwasher.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
I had a similar problem. Check the control knob that turns the machine on. At this age, it sounds like the control knob is either bad or a wire has burned off. Check to see if their is an internal fuse in the washer.

When the Dishwasher won't fill you'll need to check for the water inlet hose, the water inlet valve and the float switch assembly. When the water fills your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages. If the hose is not clogged then check the water inlet valve for any clogs, if the water will not even fill for few seconds then certainly the water inlet valve is bad and should be replaced. You can also use a multimeter to check continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly. However, if the valve is fine then the float switch assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.
