Having problems with your Maytag MDB5100A Dishwasher ?

I have a maytag mdb5100 after a power surge it will not fill with water it keeps humming like it is trying to fill but never does water line is clear no problem there any suggestions thanks


Answers :

Un plug the washer and let sit for 5 min. Then try plugging back in to reset the board electronics. Power surges can lead to blown components on the board! If resetting doesn't work, look closely at the board to see if there are any brown areas that look overheated. A power surge leads to voltage and current spikes that can overwelm the electronics. Sometimes, replacing a blown Diode or Chip is a simple soldering job with parts from Radio Shack.

Bosch SHX46A02UC-21 Won't Fill and Drain Runs Continually. Original presentation of problem was that it wouldn't drain. Discovered that Garbage Disposal had plugged drain line. After clearing Drain Line, now drains fine but the drain pump runs continuously and it never fills with water. Have done the Cancel, Power Off routine however, even after that, drain pump runs continually.

I have a bosch SHE58C dishwasher. The cycles all work, it fills so the water line is ok, it washes, and it drains so it is not clogged. I cleaned out the sump and it is all clear. However, I think the "brain" or control module is bad. When I try to run a cycle, it does not fill. One other note is that it continues to run when the door is open. Is there a way to reset the "brain"? I've tried killing the circuit breaker


I have a similar problem with my SHE55M15UC model. I bought it last week and I had to push and hold the cancel button before it would start another cycle. If it doesn't finish the previous cycle, it will not let water in. Also, mine doesn't shutoff ... Bosch Evolution 800 SHE58C05UC Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

Dishwasher will not fill with water. I've already checked the float assembly, that seems to be working fine. The water just doesn't seem to run into the machine. Little history on an unrelated problem: I want to mentioned that not to long ago my brother tried to put a bunch of celery through the garbage disposal. The sinks and pipes got all clogged up and we had to take them apart to clear up. Immediately afterwards the dishwasher stopped filling with water. I don't see how the two can be r

LG model LDS5811WW/02 has never cleaned the dishes since first installation. Put clean dishes in and they will come out dirty too! Have tried all dishwasher soap types and brands and drying agents. Always scrape and rinse dishes prior to loading. Dishes loaded various ways but problem remains. Repairman says unit is working fine. Also never dries dishes completely. Often leaves soap dispenser completely or partially filled. We are on a farm and have hard water but we have a softener/iron remover


If the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms. ...

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

Bosch Exxcel Dishwasher (Enr SMS53E12GB/01 FD 9002) bought in July 2010. Error code 15 and "Check Water Supply" light on at same time. Have checked in-line filter in tap connection and all clear, water pressure OK, no kinks/twists in supply hose. Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'll have to call Customer Service in the end as it's outside of my problem-solving ability, but would like to check whether there's a known reset or fix I can try before I call.

I have a Frigidaire dishwasher. Model FDB520RHS0, Serial TH92539147. The drum fills with water but will not drain. I purchased the unit about 2 years ago. It has been used sparingly and mostly on light wash. I removed the basket and could find nothing blocking the drain. Is there a fix? Can I replace the drain pump?

Ran the dishwasher and the water didn't drain completely. Checked the drain line for clog - it was clear. Scooped out the remaining water (barely covered the flat wire mesh filter in bottonm of the machine) and cleaned off the canister mesh filter and carefully relocked the filtyer in place. Tried to run the machine last night. Soap tray opened but apparently no water cycled through the machine as all the soap was in the bottom of the machine.

I have a Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher (Model Number 665.15634) that will not fill up properly. When I try to run a cycle (any cycle), the first thing the dishwasher should do is fill up with hot water. But in my case, my dishwasher fills for about 10 seconds, then stops. Then tries to fill again for about 7 seconds, then abruptly stops again. And this process goes on and on and on. The dishwasher never fully fills up nor starts the wash sequence properly. Once the dishwasher fills up, it

Hello I have a Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher model #MDBH955AWW that is making a lot of noise. I saw an exchange on this site where the expert suggested filling the washer to just above the heating element, running it, and seeing if that solved the problem. I tried that and it solved the problem. I believe the expert said this indicates the fill valve needs to be replaced. Can you tell me which valve I need and advise me on how to change the valve?

I discontinued using them, but no matter what I do now, including scrubbing the glasses crystal clear before I load them in, they come out horrible.

I have a Whirlpool GU1100 built-in diswasher that will not clear the pot & pans selection. It is stuck with the pots & pans and the cancel buttons lit and blinking. It will not start or clear. I have tryed to shut the power off for awhile and this has not helped. Other buttons can be pushed and will light but the other two remain blinking. If the clear button is pushed it will clear the other button but not the pots & pans or itself. Is this a problem I can fix myself?

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

Asko diswasher D3122 - white, built in. For the past 6 months, the dishes are coming out white. I have had the dishwasher for a number of years and never a problem. I had changed to Cascade Complete so I thought that was it, so I switched back to the regular type of Cascade and still have the problem. I tried adding vinegar to the wash cycle and this helped initially but no longer works. I should not have to add vinegar to every load if it worked fine before. A new problem is that in the la
