Tile second, less time without a kitchen and no chance of breaking tile during other work.

Tile last, just make sure you have the room from tile to base cabinet counter top to fit your dishwasher in. I can't tell you how many times the tile guys tile into the dishwasher opening and guess what dishwasher would not fit. If questionable have them leave the front tiles out or you will never get it in. If you install the dishwasher before tiling, if it ever goes bad you may have to remove the front tiles to get it out.

Picture this: you've installed the cabinets, and an under-counter dishwasher, before tiling. It's three years later. Your dishwasher needs service or replacement. But there's a half-inch-thick lip of ceramic tile that it won't come over.
Which way do you think is better?

Tile last, BUT tile under the DW. Or at least some leveling material such as cement board.

Doesn't that screw up the height of the dw compared to the cabinets? Don't you have to also raise the surrounding cabinets the same amount with plywood?

dishwasher,
won't
That's the exact reason for adjustable legs on dishwashers.
For general updating a room, flooring is the first to go besides painting. Could you imagine someone attempting to change a tile floor with cabinets sitting on them?
BTW, all new construction in this area, flooring is the last material installed, besides a shoe mold.
