Wordhog: Does sound like a siezed wash pump to me. Wash motor needs to run to get the correct level of water.
To drain a Miele dishwasher, start the machine on a cycle. All the Miele range of dishwashers drain before filling. Then hold in the start button until the end/finish light is lit. Keep doing this until all the water has gone. You could just get a jug and bail it out. Once the jug does not do the job anymore, switch to a cup, I use a very large syringe for the remaining half a litre.

That is because the water level switch activated by the floating sensor is stuck.
You probably need to have the water level switch replaced.

Follow-up: I was able to fix the problem on Bosch model # SHU 4002UC. Purchased water inlet valve (part number 425458) from Sears Parts Center. I required the Sears unit number from the original invoice as Sears computer system apparently cannot identify the Bosch model number. The valve is as described by meyerjr above; however it is located at the bottom front of the machine so could be replaced (not so easily) without removing the machine. Cost of part was $30.50 Cdn including tax.

The most likely causes are a failed drain pump motor (or capacitor) or a jammed/broken pump impeller. There is a very simply simple test on classixx models which which help you to determine the cause, or where to look next.
1. Turn the wash cycle selector to any wash cycle so the "ON" light is illuminated, but do not press the START/STOP button.
2. Open the door and pull the lower basket out.
3. Locate the 'float', lift it up fully and keep it held up.
(The float is a dome/mushroom shaped protrusion in the base of the washer just to the left of the drain and partially hidden by the spray arm)
When you lift the float, the drain pump should run instantly and the water should drain from the washer. If you can hear a low hum from the pump motor in the base of the washer, but the water doesn't drain, then it's likely that the pump impeller is jammed or it may have broken away from the spindle. If this is the case, try repeatedly lifting and dropping the float fairly rapidly. Repeated stop/start signals to the pump motor can sometimes free a stuck impeller.
If you cannot hear any noise from the base of the washer when you lift the float, then the drain pump motor or the motor capacitor may have failed. A failed capacitor is often accompanied by a buzzing noise. Further testing will be required to determine the exact cause of the fault.
Please try the simple test above and then post back with the results for further assistance.
Hope this helps.

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.
