You can do some checking at www.repairclinic.com They also sell the parts
so you can get an idea of the prices. A new machine is $400 to $1400.

$50 repair is a good deal. If the racks are rusting and falling apart, if it
no longer cleans well, best to invest in new.
The drain may just be clogged. Disconnect the power and unscrew the
cover underneath the heating element. A knife or fork may be caught
and creating the blockage. If this doesn't help it may be the pump
that's bad and not worth replacing on a 9 year old machine.
