Miele g892 scu plus, about 5 years old. when on, all it does is run some motor (humming sound) and flash salt or intake/drain. No program lights on.

When control knob is turned motor hums at the places where it normally should run. The water valve & heating coil seem to be operationg normally. i assume the next step is to test the motor &/or motor relay. Is this correct and how do I do that?
