Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDBH965AW Built-in Dishwasher ?

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds. Then last week, the diswasher would shut off in mid cycle and all lights would turn off with water still in the dishwasher. Today, I noticed that I am able to open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running and it will continue to run like the door was never opened. Now it is starting to trip the brea


Answers :

2 items in need of testing are the door switch - and the main controller board/timer unit.

CLICK HERE for all the blowout diagrams of your dishwasher.

the entire handle assembly (--with switches--) is HERE
the switches alone are HERE
the Control Board is HERE

Test/replace the door switches first - as they are the cheapest, and most likely to fail. They must be removed and checked for continuity - individually.

All you can do with the control panel is verify power to and from the switch with a Digital Multimeter.
If there is no power TO the switch - the board is faulty.

It is my opinion since there is more than one problem - in your case the control board is the culprit.

The dishwasher doors falls down:\015\012\015\012You may have had a door spring break. There several different door springs, but most, if\015\012not all dishwashers have 2 door springs. You will need to remove the \015\012\015\012 lower access panels to get at the springs. They are fairly easy\015\012to get at and replace :-) This is a collection of some common springs used\015\012today, link is here.

Hi, I have a KitchenAid Superba diswasher model #KUDSO1FLSS2 that has quit working. All the buttons seem to work and the lights light up as they should but when you hit the 'start' button the light that you selected for whichever cycle would flash once, then close the front door and dishwasher would start. The 'start' button was acting up and would have to press a few times before light would flash and then the dishwasher would work. Now everything lights up but start button does not work. Opene

I have a bosch SHU8815UC dishwasher. It was already installed when i moved into my apartment - so I'm unsure of the age. The dishwasher isn't functioning. When I open the door, the "Clean" light and the PowerScrub button are red. When i close the door, the light go off but nothing happens. One time I closed the door, it started to rev up but would shut off and beep three times after about 1 min. No water comes out. Any ideas? Thanks! June

My wife opened door during cycle. When she closed door it would no longer run. Looking at problems and recomendations on similar models, I replaced the board. Did not fix the problem. I have checked the fuse and the door switches for continuity and all seem ok. The only lights on the panel that come on are: under cycle- Pots & Pans, Light. Under Options - Heated dry. No other lights work and the dishwasher does not operate.


Hi,\015\012\015\012First off, sorry to hear that you replaced the control board for nothing..in hindsight. So if I understand what you're saying is this, You cannot select any cycles and the unit won't start...because the start button is ... Dishwashers

The power was turned off and then on again. When the power was restored the dishwasher would not work. The only light that would come on when the door is openned is the heated dry light a ms it would only turn on for a moment.

Start button flashes 2hr, but will not start the dishwasher, when touched. Also, lights on top of the door are not always functioning. I phoned Maytag and customer service had me turn off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. This did not change the dishwasher. I think that the door latch is not snapping into position, when I open the door.

I have a du1145xtpq7 whirlpool dishwasher. Out of the blue it quit working completely. The sensing and washing lights light up, but when it goes to the next step of just washing nothing happens. The soap dispenser door opens and there is water in the bottom of the dishwasher. It wasn't making any irregular noises, unless I'm just used to them since it came with the house. Any advice you have would be appreciated. Thanks.

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 100 dishwasher. There is an icon with a "3" in it just to the left of "heat dry." I just noticed this "3" light is on and the dishwasher won't start when I push the "start/cancel" button. All that happens is the "3" light flashes when you push any of the other buttons, but it won't do anything else. Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.


The "3" means hold for 3 seconds to child proof it. When it's on, none of the functions work. When you hold it again for 3 seconds, it turns off and your buttons will work again.\015\012Good luck! ... Dishwashers

I have a Maytag MDB8951bws and I have noticed that the dishes at the end of the cycle do not feel hot but mildly warm and not completely dry. I also noticed that when I select the ''Sanitize'' option the light that tells you the dishes have completed being sanitized does not come on after the cycles are completely finished (the ''clean'' light does come on). One last note I will throw in is that the high temp wash seems to work quite well as a lot of steam is expelled when the door is opened dur

Dishwasher Normally, after the dishwasher cleans the load, it displays green light next to clean. Once the door is opened, the light goes off an dishwasher is ready for next load. But from few days, after opening the dishwasher door, the clean light does not go off, it remains lit. Dishwasher doe snot reset for next cycle. So, I have to go in the basement and trip the main power to dishwasher. That resets the dishwasher. This needs to be done before each cycle. Not sure how to resolve the issue.


Make sure that you do not open the door during the wash cycle. Wait until all the cycles \015\012are complete before opening the door. Especially don't open the door \015\012during the drying cycle. ... Dishwashers

My Kenwood dishwasher KDW24FI/B has worked fine for approx 2 years. But now when I put my dishwasher on, the cycle never seems to end.

... Kenmore Dishwashers

Kenmore dishwasher. The upper rack is not getting clean. Even very light residue remains. And, detergent is left in door at end of cycle. The bottom is filling up, so I don't think it's the intake valve. Also, all the blade openings appear clear. I am noticing that hot water is not filling the dishwasher when I first run the cycle. Even if I have hot water running in the sink, the dishwasher fills with cold or warm water. So, I think this is the problem. What should I do? Thank you in advance!


I find it odd that the dishwasher is filling with cold water if the water is hot at the sink. It sounds like the dishwasher is connected to the cold water line rather than the hot. Check under your sink; if you've got standard plumbing, the dishwas ... Dishwashers

Dishwasher only faintly comes on. The detergent compartment opened but, there is a great deal of detergent residue on the inside of the door. Additionally, I removed the "mesh" drain grates from the base of the dishwasher and they are covered with chemical buildup. I was able to remove a good deal of chemical buildup. When the dishwasher would come on before, you could here the cycle start up, you could here the water, etc., now it is very faint, and you can barely hear any sound.

About 7 or 8 minutes after setting my dishwasher to run a "Normal" cycle, I noticed that it didn't sound right. The Sensing light and the Add a Dish light were both on. I hit cancel and opened the door to find the inside totally dry and just barely warm. It had a slight smell - probably from the motor trying to run unsucessfully. Is there something I can do to remedy this issue without calling a repairman?
