Thanks for counting on us to help with your appliance problem. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! Since it fills and drains but will not start, I suspect the heater pressure switch is faulty. It monitors the water level so the heater cannot turn on when the tub is empty. This part is mounted in the sump assembly and requires a fair amount of disassembly to access. I can send you the service manual for that machine if you think it is something you want to tackle. I will caution you, though, that Miele products are not easy to service.
