Miele W716 - Will not cycle after filling with water

My wife recently purchased this Miele W716 Washing machine, which we were assured works. Its a 220 volt 50 Hz machine. In a direct 240 hookup, although there is power to the machine nothing functions. I stepped it down to a 110 hookup and got power to the control panel and switches, however although the machine will fill it will not operate beyond that. I have tried every setting and on the programmable dial it gets to Spulen and stops. if I power off and return to stop. the cycle window comes back to the top however nothing functions (wash, rinse, drain, spin). The panel is probably ok on 110 power where everything else requires the 220. the three wires of the back of the machine are, 1 is brown, 1 is blue and the third is a green/yellow. 

I am open to any suggestions. I will get a digital multimeter to check resistance and continuity.....Thanks!

Hi, not sure why you would step down to a 110 hookup - or even what one is :) Are you in the UK?

No I'm in Canada.110 is standard here. The step down was to confirm that the electronics work, which they did. It would not provide sufficient power for the motors....
