Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

I have a MDB5130AWW model dishwasher and it has worked extremely well up until a week ago. Now there is water sitting at the bottom of the dishwasher, and the "Clean" and "Rinse Only" buttons are blinking. I've read the manual, and ran the Automatic Function test, and it seems that these two buttons blinking indicates a Motor problem, specifically a low current problem. Please Help!


Answers :

You may have a seized/stuck motor. Turn the electricity off and remove the lower panels. Take a flat head screw driver and carefully attempt to move the motor impellers. If the impellers feel hard to turn continue to try and free the impellers. If they loosen, reactivate the power and start the appliance. Good luck!

Maytag diswasher MDB6600AWW Sprayer arms don't spin. Dishwasher makes all the right noises, except for spraying. Water fills properly and heats up. Water drains properly. Found paper on the back of access panel. Ran Manual Function and Field Service tests, no problems indicated. Disassembled all the pieces inside the bottom of the dishwasher. No obviously damaged parts. Shaft for motor turns freely. It seems like the parts that attach from the impeller to the motor shaft don't

I have a Whirlpool DU1048 that started out with a blinking clean light. I reset the dishwasher by pressing the heated dry and normal buttons twice. That worked the clean light stopped blinking. The problem now is the dishwasher seem to be stuck in the wash cycle. I finally have to turn it off after over an hour washing. Is this possibly a heating element problem? is that user replaceable?

2 brand new Kenmore elite dishwashers - All hookups checked and correct. Start buttons blink - cycles will not start. 1 washer ran for about 10 seconds - then the light started blinking. Troubleshooting in manual says light will blink if the door is not closed. They seem pretty closed. Dishwashers leveled and plumb. Tried it mounted, and unmounted. No Luck. Thanks


These dishwashers have a safety feature. The door has to be closed within 3 seconds of pushing the start button. If the cycle is interrupted at all by opening the door or pushing something while started you will have to push the start button to resum ... Kenmore 24 in. 17482 / 17484 / 17489 Built-in Dishwasher

I have a Maytag dishwasher model MDBTT60AWW. None of its wash modes will work when pressing their respective buttons. The Fields Service Test functioned normally with the exception of the "heated dry" and "sanitize" LEDs not being lit. Tried to perform the Manual Function Test, but none of the components would operate upon pressing the respective keys for testing their operation.

We have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher Model number 665-13859K601. The Normal wash and the Cancel (drain) buttons are flashing red on the control panel. No matter what we have tried, we have been unable to correct this problem. Obviously the dishwasher does not function. When you close the door the lights keep flashing and no button combinations seem to do anything. I have looked at the troubleshooting guide that came with the dishwasher, however there is no

Hi, I have a Miele G681 dish washer with an intake/drain light problem. I've read all posts about similar problems I could find both on this forum and others but I'm afraid I still can't figure my problem out. The intake/drain light starts blinking mid way into the dishwashing process. The dish washer fills up, rinses, drains, water is hot, everything seems to function just fine. Some time after the tablet drops from its door mounted container, and the time estimate reaches 46 minutes r

We have a Bosch dishwasher SHX46A06 UC/21. It continually runs. We couldn't find a diagnostic test for our model, but we did for another model. We held down the power scrub and regular wash cycles then turned it on and pressed them again. The delicate/econo light started blinking. Looking at some of the blogs, most often it seems to be the heater or the control panel - does this diagnostic test help to pinpoint what could be wrong? Also, where can we find a good manual for our model - we're havi

Dishwasher does not seem to have power. I have a Kitchen Aid, under counter unit, 9 years old, model KUDS01I. I used it 2 nights ago with no problem. When I push a button, nothing happens, no lights show, etc. It is plugged into the lower half of a duplex socket with disposal plugged into the top. Disposal works, so the problem seems to be with the dishwasher. That also eliminates any issues related to breakers or ground fault indicators, etc. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? Is there

I have a Kenmore dishwasher model 66574362K2. It has worked fine until tonight. I opened the door before the end of a cycle, closed the door, and pushed the cancel drain button. There was still water in the bottom but the dishes were basicly finished. Now I can not seem to get the dishwasher to come back on. The lock button seems to be on and it usually is not on. The manual says to push and hold the button for 4 seconds to turn it off. I did that. But now it is flashing between the Heate

Lock Control I don't have a manual for my dishwasher. The Lock button is on (top of dishwasher). I have pushed that top button for 3 seconds. The button on the top and the "L" then both blink. The button on the top then stays on and the "L" light goes off. Since I can't get the lock light to go off - - my dishwasher won't tun on. Thank you very much.

I have a maytag dishwasher mdb5601awb. when I hit the start button nothing happens. I have found the instructions to do a manual test which is hitting the heated dry button 5 times and then the start button. Thinking it will run some test which I have no idea what to look for, it actually runs the machine's wash cycles and clean, dries and tells me it clean with the green light goes on. How do I reset/reboot the machine so it starts by just hitting the start button again?

I have a hotpoint built in automatic dishwasher model HDA3740G02SA. When my dishwasher runs all the cups on the top shelf seem to have dishwashing soap powder left in the bottom of the cups. I do not over fill the cup where you put the dish washer powder in. It seems like it isn't rinsing the glasses and cups on the top rack of the dishwasher properly. Do you know what the problem would be and how to correct it?

PLD2560LCC1 Frigidaire Dishwasher...Control Panel shows 65 minutes left on lower rack, works for about 1 minute, shuts down. None of the buttons work. I changed the control (major circuit) board, same problem. I wonder if it's the control "panel"? I took that off and looked at it. Seems okay, but could the problem. I've heard this model has control problems, but I'm not sure if they mean the major control board or the control panel that has the buttons.
