Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDB3700 Built-in Dishwasher ?

My dishwasher won't drain. Repair man is telling me the motor's burned out. Does this sound right?


Answers :

Chance are there. If repair man says motor is burnt, he can always show you the motor. You can easily smell the burnt smell.

Let him replace the motor and collect the old motor. that is the only way you can make sure. Hope the repairman has checked all the the other points. Before replacing the motor, find out the reasons for motor getting burnt! No water seepage into the coil, no high voltage in your area etc.

Buzzing sound we have a gold quiet lll edition , it is now buzzing when we start it. we have had a repair man here twice each time he has taken it apart and cleaned it. he has said because we have hard water, the water oxidized and some sediment has broke though the seal into the motor and now we need a new motor. does this sound right? we have had dishwashers from whirlpool for years prior. never had to change a motor. please can you offer some suggestions? thanks very much desperate in Mexico.

I just moved into a house that has a Maytag Quiet 300 dishwasher. After about 2 weeks, I'm hearing a VERY loud, almost grinding noise about 6-7 minutes into the wash cycle, then again near the end of the wash cycle. It sounds like a motor thing and I'm hoping to avoid a repair bill right now, the cost of the move wiped us out. Is this something that I can fix, and if not, will continuing to run the dishwasher with the noise kill it?

LG dishwasher LDS4821BB just started making a new grinding sound while washing. No similar sounds while filling or draining, so I wouldn't think it is the motor assembly like many answers suggest. We installed it March 2009. This sound may be similar to one which led to the motor assembly being replaced while still under warranty about nine months ago. Unfortunately, the LG repairman was too hard of hearing to be able to diagnose that replacement, so he did it based on our description of

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob.

Maytag MDBTT79AWW dishwasher fills and nothing else. Once filled you hear a click, followed by a humming sound for 3-5 seconds, then silence. This will happen two or three more times, and then unit will shut off. Motor doesn't start. Repairman says he thinks control board is bad, but he sounds like he is guessing. I performed a field service test , which indicated a fault in the high current motor circuit. Unit is seven years old. Don't know whether to attempt repair, or replace.


That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and s ... Dishwashers
