I have a Miele G870 SC Dish washer. Has worked fine for years.

Resolved Question:

I have a Miele G870 SC Dish washer. Has worked fine for years.
It is draining into the sink properly, etc., however as of sunday night, when we run a load, it goes through all the cycles, but uses no water. The dishes are 'warm', but unwashed at the end. They dry cycle seems to continue in perpetuity. Sorry if that's not very discriptive, but I really don't know what's going on. Can the water intake be clogged?

You need to check if the water inlet valve is getting 120 volts if it is replace it.You need to remove the front lower kick plate to access it.
