Maytag MDB9150AWW model not getting wash water, gets rinse water

\015 My Maytag MDB9150AWW model is not getting wash water, but it IS getting rinse water. When I use Auto Clean, Normal or LIght Wash no water enters the machine and then it attempts to wash without water. Instead of hearing the water entering the machine there is complete silence. At some point the dishwasher attempts to wash the dishes even though there is no water in it. At this point I open the door and manually add water using my sink's hose sprayer. For Auto and Normal, this is done twice as I believe there is a pre-wash stage. For Light I only do this once. The water always drains successfully and when the rinse cycle comes along the water enters without a problem and the dishes are rinsed.Having read some other posts, I don't know if this is a float switch problem that gets ''unstuck'', or if this is an electronic control problem. The water inlet valve works fine for the rinse cycle, as does the float switch. Since the pre-wash (first) wash cycle doesn't ''unstick'' the float switch and I have to add water a second time for the (second) wash cycle, but waqter enters fine for the rinse cycle, I tend to think the float switch is probably ok. Any ideas?\015

Hi,
\015\012I think you have thought this through throughly and have narrowed it down pretty good....
\015\012The soleniod valve does work or you would not be getting rinse water...
\015\012The float is working or the rinse would either not fill at all or overfill...
\015\012so the electronic control seems to be the problem and when it should be filling for the wash cycles it is not activating the fill soleniod..
\015\012I agree with you that the part I would change is the electronic control...
\015\012
\015\012here is the part...based on the model number you gave...

The heater is still on (120volts) nothing further happens it just boils away on the water in the washer.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash dishwasher. Model # 665.15685791. All of a sudden it acts as if it is getting too much water. Water comes over the edge of the interior tub during the rinse cycle, and ends up on the kitchen floor. Is there an adjustment I can make? There doesn't seem to be any blockage, as all the water does drain out of the tub during the regular cylcles. Vince Woodwick [email protected]


Hi, there is a water level sensor and if this is happening then it maybe faulty, and need to be replaced, either this or the controller board that controls it has gone faulty, one needs to troubleshoot to tell.\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Kenmore Dishwashers

Bosch dishwasher, Model SMU 7056, UC 09, FD 7309. My older unit has operated flawlessly for years. Two days ago it started to "stall" in one cycle and not progress to the next, e.g., stayed in the wash cycle and would not move on to rinse. In addition the heat generated in the machine was way below normal. A repairman told me that if the water doesn't get hot enough, the unit will not move on to the next cycle. I always use the "Regular Wash" option, but tried other options such as 'Economy

Hi! My bosch SHE43 built in dishwasher is about 2.5 yrs old, dishes aren't getting clean anymore. We have *really* hard water so I use the max rinse agent, but doesn't help. I clean the little canister filter with each wash, and just washed off that grate in the bottom. I also just cleaned the trap under the sink, but it didn't look bad at all. The problem is a grit left on glasses and things just not getting all the way clean. When I remove the grate at the bottom, there's a bit of water

Dishwasher is not cleaning well, dirty film all over everything, like its not rinsing. In rinse cycle only, some water comes out of lower left port inside but nothing else. Hear a low buzz underneath unit like a motor or pump is energized but no water getting to the top.During normal wash cycle, buzz from underneath seems to cycle on and off, say every minute or so like its cycling on an overload. Do I have a bad pump and if so how do I get to it?

My dishwasher was moved for kitchen rennovations. When hooked back up again it would not fill up. It will run through a cycle but no water enters. If I squeeze the rubber hose that leads from the electronic valve to the tub it gets hot indicating that I am forcing hot water through the line. If I pour water into the tub it will wash the dishes but at the final 6 minute point it will go no further, I assume because it is not getting rinse water.

Last week when i would quick peek during wash cycle there seem to be water coming out of top arm's holes but no spin. We also are getting heavy white staining on glass ware
