Having problems with your Maytag Dishwashers ?

I have a Maytag dishwasher quiet series 300. It is one year old. The problem I am having is this. After running a cleaning cycle, there is water in the bottom of the machine. If I push the start button, then cancel a few seconds later it will drain. Any idea? Thanks, Terry Roose

Hi Terry, Welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
\015\012 A few things can cause this. Most of the time it is drain related with the Air-Gap being the culprit that is restricting drain flow. If the dishwasher drain has a restriction when the pump motor shuts off the water left in the hose BEFORE the restriction gravity drains back into the dishwasher.
\015\012If you have an Air-gap Take a look at this link: http://www.ehow.com/how_6327450_clean-air-gap-dishwasher.html
\015\012- Basically you pull off the cover by lifting straight up. Unscrew the cap nut in the top, Lift out the cap NOTING the installed position as it will only install ONE way. Remove the debris under the cap and clear the passages. (Sometimes you have to remove the lower hoses and use a wire coat hanger or large plastic zip / cable tie) Reinstall / assemble everything on the Air-Gap.
\015\012- ALSO check the sink connection or garbage disposal port for obstructions. Sometimes it is easier to just remove the hose from the sink / garbage disposal connection to clear any obstructions.
\015\012- If the problem persists the blockage may be at the pump motor connection. Again remove the hose and inspect for blockage. Install the hose when your finished.
\015\012This should pretty much get you going. If after doing all of the above there is more that can but done inside the dishwasher. I think this is all you will need to do. Just respond here if your problem is persistent. I will gladly help you.
