Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDB6100A Built-in Dishwasher ?

Runtime way too long

\015 My Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher runs way too long. Even on the short cycle, it runs over two hours. The regular cycle is over three hours. The water is red hot so it's not like the machine has to run long to heat the water. It has digital controls, so I can't manually advance the dial. It's totally unnecessary for a d/w to run this long, so I'm wondering if I can program it, or change a computer chip, to make it run for a reasonable time period. Our old Magic Chef dishwasher got everything just as clean in an hour. It's only two months old, and I don't want to replace it, but if I can't find a solution, I may have to. Thanks.\015

I have just moved into a home with the DS-603i and used it for the first time. I put it on the first load and seemed to go for way to long. so i opened it up and t washed the first load ok, but continued to make noises. It would make these noises even when draw opened. Turn on & off at power and it doesn't change the noises. The light on inside indicates rince, which i think is a F1 error code according to the manual online. Any tips on how to fix this?


The F1 error code indicated a leak problem. The noise that you hear is from the pump motor. There is a leak due to the top lid not sealed properly, so the water is shooting out during the wash cycle. It did not seal tightly because there are 2 actuat ... Fisher and Paykel 24 in. DS-603 Built-in Dishwasher

Washer is running for 3-4 hours -- way too long.


No machine should have a 3 hour wash cycle. The timer will not advance if the water is not up to the proper temp. A severely extended wash cycle is usually caused by a faulty heating element.I assume the water supply line was hooked up to the H ... Kenmore 16602 / 16604 / 16609 Built-in Dishwasher

Kenmore Dishwasher model 665.1675592 doesn't seem to wash as well as it used to. Seems to have a low water level. Filler valve works, allows water in, but never seems to fill enough. No spray reaches top shelf, I think due to insufficient water level. It's like the timer doesn't stay on long enough for it to fill. Also cycle time seems WAY up, but if the timer is slow, how does it time out filling so fast? Looks like it would be slow all the time. Suggestions?

Bosch SHU 43C 05UC/22 Has a very loud Groaning noise at start up midway and at end of cycle. Have cleaned and changed the DW Hose to the DW drain assembly under sink. Drains better but, I suspect the drain motor has been overtaxed because it's a long way to the sink - about 8 ft. under the kitchen in crawl space and up to sink.

I have a Bosch (SHU5302UC/U12). The washer often takes 2 or more hours to run. Sometimes it gets stuck for a long time part way through (e.g. just sits at "43"). Other times, it gets stuck at 1 and won't stop on its own. The latest thing is 2 dots have appeared on the display that I've never seen before. For example, instead of "43", it reads "4.3." Eventually it gets to "C.L." but does not stop running. Also, its been making very strange noises during part of the wash cycle.

Won't drain I'm helping my daughter long distance,their dishwasher won't drain. I had her remove the course strainer to check the well for debris. She said she cannot get in it because the sprayer is in the way. How is the sprayer removed to access the drain well in the Maytag DWU dish washer?


In most cases the blockage is at the end of the drainhose, where it connects th the "peatrap", simply removing the hose clamp, then hose and inspecting. If no blockage found there you will need assistance. If you want, you can funnel your hand over t ... Maytag DWU9962 Dishwasher

I have an Asko w66 front load washing machine that will only wash one way with a 60 second time delay and washes the same way again instead of reversing. At no time will it wash the other way. At the first spin cycle the water is pumped out but the wash drum will not spin. The pump continues to pump and will not stop while the one way wash continues. The timer stops at this point with the one way wash and pump still pumping continuously.

My dishwasher is brand new Model FDB1502RGS0. I used it for the first time today. It seemed to be cleaning for a very long time. It was up to 2 hours and I had to leave so I turned it off. How long should it take. That seems like an awfully long time. I kept waiting for the drying mode to start and it sounded like it kept filling up and emptying. Does this sound right? Please advise asap.


Most DW today take a minimum of 90 minutes. Run the hot water from the\015\012sink until it gets hot, then start the DW, this will shorted the first\015\012wash cycle. It is not uncommon for the DW to run 2hrs or more based\015\012upon the water temp ... Dishwashers

We have a MDB4651AWW dishwasher. It is very loud, we have the bottom front panel that seals the dishwasher at the floor but cannot figure out how to install it. One way it does not fit, the other way it won't let the door open and close properly. The noise is terrible and it has been that way for three years. We don't believe there is anything wrong with the dishwasher, figure the bottom panel will deaden the sound. can you show us how it goes?
