Well, I must be Olde Skool, since my microwave oven has a wind up timer, but I have never seen a dish washer with a wind-up timer. My guess is that Miele simply used a generic Linux controller and the ethernet port and web server is simply for programming and testing it on the production line and isn't actually intended for daily use.
