Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Maytag Quietseries 200 not draining and shutting off before start

\015 My Maytag will sometimes work and sometimes not. If it does turn on it wont drain the water and shuts off (lights all off) before the cycle finishes. Lately it might turn on for a few minutes and then shuts off (lights all off) and no matter what I try I cant get it going again. Any advice???\015

Check for a faulty microswitch in the door.. i have a kenmore that did the same thing.. it has two switches in the handle that operate the dishwasher.. if one or both are faulty you will have that problem.. hope this helps
HI. check the following areas for faults..

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Maytag Model MDB7160AWW S/N 10337613WQ Symptons: Fills with water OK, shuts off water OK, does not start any cycle, or drain. After a power off/power on reset, problem remains. Flashes CLEAN & LIGHT WASH. My understanding is this is an error condition for low motor current, which makes sense as the motor never starts. I know both door switches are good (I checked them with a DVM) and both engage when the door is closed. Tripping the water float switch opens the valve and water fills the tub

When I press the start button, Bosch dishwasher (model SHY56A 05UC) just keep running the motor pumping the water out of dishwasher, irrespective of: 1) the wash cycle it is on, 2) whether the door is closed or open, 3) whether I cancel drain cycle, as told by Bosch Cust Svc in following steps: - "Cancel Drain" by pressing 'Quick Wash' and 'Regular Wash' buttons together for a minute until it shows 0* - Shut power off for a minute and wait for a minute - Restart on Quick Cycle.

It is likely there is some fault with the float switch. Which means the dishwasher thinks it is overfilled with water and tries to empty out to protect itself.

Maytag mdb7100awb dishwasher is leaking from the bottom right corner. starts to leak almost immediately upon starting it. I then opened it and found that the entire tub is filled with water, looks like it is overfilled. I wonder whether it is overfilling and there might be a clog in the drain or if it's the seal/gasket? where are the drains that i need to check for blockage?

Won start Was using the pressure washer 1st time this year and started on the second pull. Ran out of gas shut-off also noticed it needed oil. Believe, I put too much oil so, I drained some and added gas. At first, there was no resistant in the pull so waited an hour and tried again. This time the resistant was there on the pull but still would not start; no attempt even to turn over.

Our dishwasher (a Maytag - MDBH970AW) will not proceed past the intital intake of water. It has done this occasionally in the past, but with repeated attempts to start a wash cycle, it would eventually work and continue to work for some time afterward. However, in the past week, it will not go through a wash cycle. I have ran the water, prior to starting, to ensure that it is intaking very hot water.

I have a 8 yr old model 16879 that stops apparently during the drain cycle. At this point the lights on the panel flash in what appears to be a coded sequence.

Have a Bosch shy56a05uc dishwasher that suddenly stopped working to a point. I believe it is related to the door latch switch, because I don't feel the door securely latch shut when I close it, and I also don't get any cycle lights or times registered on the LED readout. If I depress the on switch, the drain pump will start even with the door open, and, depending on how long I leave the switch on, water will start to fill in the dishwasher, open or not.
