Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Maytag dishwasher MDB2400AWE fills then immediatley drains and continues wash cycle with no water.


Answers :

Hi.

It is a stuck drain solenoid that remains closed all the time. This is commonly caused by a broken lifter.

Here the part: PS2202732

If that is OK, then check and replace the solenoid: SOLENOID\015\012 .

Lifter Part is nr 23 in diagram below, solenoid is part 5; click on the picture to enlarge:

It would help understand the problem better if you can clarify what you mean by "continues with wash cycle". Do you hear the timer click ahead? what about the motor - does it continue to operate?
\015\012
\015\012There should be a float switch at the base of the dishwasher. Can you feel it come back if you press it?
\015\012
\015\012Have you tried with any of the short cycles? Try to turn the power to dishwasher off and back on after a short delay and see if anything different.

I have a Kitchen Aid Superba KUDS24SEBS1. The inlet water pressure is good and the dishwasher fills and starts the wash cycle, however, after the initial spray of water, it seems that all of the water drains out and there is nothing left to continue the cycle and wash the dishes. It's like it's not able to fill up enough to wash the dishes.

... Maytag Dishwashers

When dishwasher is set to begin, sensor takes very long period of time. Cycles are longer than minutes indicated. Dishwasher fills with water but does not wash. Water then drains as though cycle is complete and moves to next cycle. Then the process continues. When cycle for drying is reached, much heat is given and occasionally it smells as though there is burning. A 82 minute procedure turns into hours.

I have a bosch SHE58C dishwasher. The cycles all work, it fills so the water line is ok, it washes, and it drains so it is not clogged. I cleaned out the sump and it is all clear.

Westinghouse Virtuoso 922 dishwasher. Wash cycle completes, but water does not drain out. If I let the cycle continue, after a delay the rinse cycle starts, but of course no clean water is pumped in so the dishes are "rinsed" in the dirty wash water. The wash cycle itself is successful with water pumping all around the washer if I open the door mid-cycle. I have removed and cleaned all filters which were correctly fitted so I am confident there is no foreign matter inside pump. When the water sh

Hum in Kitchen Aid Dishwasher Model 8531529. Stated last night. No hum when filling or draining - only during the wash cycle.

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model #17519200. I loaded it last night as usual and closed the door. I pressed the wash cycle I wanted and pressed the start button. I heard it starting to fill with water as usual. After it filled with water it should have gone into the wash cycle mode but it just started making a buzzing noise for about a minute or two then just stopped. I pressed cancel to drain it and it drains fine. I have kept trying to re-run it but it just does the same thing I described.

Dishwasher wont fill with water. just before it stopped filling i was turning the dial (a lot) between the wash cycles back and forth to attempt to get it to fill and drain (I didn't let it go through a cycle).

I have been using Finish gelpacs w/jetdry & also have a off brand drying agent in reservior to help dry dishes. The water temperature is set pretty hot & washer is draining good. I have tried checking wash cycle a few minutes into 1st cycle to see if water is in filling & heating. Didn't know if maybe heating element going out or thermostat not working?

We have a Whirlpool ADP962 Dishwasher that will not fill. I replaced the inlet hose as I thought the solenoid was faulty. It's gone a step further and now sounds like it fills (continuously) however it soon drains without any water entering the dishwashing compartment (this remains dry). I believe this issue was caused by running it through a cycle without the water mains turned on. Any ideas?
