Having problems with your Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher ?

Maytag dishwasher The lights were flashing and now nothing works. I'm wondering if it's worth repairing or should I replace. the dishwasher was about $400.00 new and if the repair is close to 50% of that is it really worth it.

Hi,

You need to investigate the actual cause :-

\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012Power from the house\015\012\015\012Is\015\012there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test,\015\012because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical\015\012circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a\015\012blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Door switch\015\012\015\012The\015\012door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher\015\012won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel\015\012cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective,\015\012you need to completely replace it.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Wiring\015\012\015\012Often\015\012the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and\015\012breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be\015\012repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the\015\012wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower\015\012part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken,\015\012burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade\015\012wire and connectors.

\015\012\015\012\015\012Timer or selector switch\015\012\015\012Although\015\012it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If\015\012so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these\015\012can be repaired.

IF YOU FIND THAT THE REPAIR IS AROUND 50%, GO FOR THE NEW ONE.

A POSITIVE RATING IS HIGHLY APPRECIABLE.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
Try to shut off the breaker to the unit or disconnect the power (black wire) at the box under the tub and must remove the bottom panel is on the right side of unit in a metal box .... for about 1 min then reconnect it and see if this reboots the cpu computer on the machine but do not mess with wiring if you know which breaker it is.. and if this doesn't do the trick then its the thermal fuse on the pcb and should be worth fixing because if you get new then the cost of new 500.00 installing is appx 150.00 225.00 unless you do yourself

We have a 6 year old Jenn Air dishwasher model JDB2150AWP We had a cracked door close unit which we replaced but got a short while restoring connections I am wondering if there is an internal circuit breaker, relay or fuse on these machines that we need to check and possibly replace since we cannot get it to run at all. No power or lights at all. I believe all connections are secure and we replaced the door close unit with new parts.

Blown Motor DW is about 16 months old. Started making some real bad noise. Lasted about a minute and then had a death howl. Called in repair tech who says motor is blown. $399 for repair which includes $125 for the part. I've rebuilt car engines, so can probably replace a DW motor. Any insight on how to replace the motor? is it worth paying 275$ for labor? Just bugs the hell out of me paying $400 bucks for a repair when i can get a new one for $450.


I haven't changed that particular brand of dishwasher motor, so I cant give a step by step, sorry. I do know the other brands it is optional to get the motor alone or the motor with the pump assembly attached, so you may want to ask abo ... Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AWS Built-in Dishwasher

Hello! I just ordered a new facia panel for our Bosch dishwasher SHU9955UC/U12. It seems like it should be fairly easy to replace it (meaning, myself...). Is it really just a question of unscrewing the screws on the inside of the door, removing the old panel and then replacing the new one? Are there any especially delicate inside mechanisms/parts That should be protected? Many thanks.

Our GE dishwasher (5 yrs old, Model GLD4250L00CS) only fills with water half way when the unit is started. The inlet valve was replaced with a new one, but that did not solve the problem. When started, the dishwasher fill cycle runs for 41 seconds before the wash cycle begins. Repair workers told us we probably need a new ECU (Electronic Computer Unit). My questions are: Is 41 seconds the correct time for the fill cycle for our model? What else could be the reason for the unit not filling pr

My new Frigidaire dishwasher (FDB2415LFC) has not been used but is out of warranty. It has a leak with water dripping from two connectors (may be the heat coils) attached to the bottom of the dishwasher (located in the center). Why would water be dripping from this location and what is the repair solution? Should I try to return the dishwasher and obtain a replacement?

Hello,I hope you can answer the question below for me. My dishwasher is a Hotpoint model BFI680 - integrated. I want to replace the old interlocking assembly with a new one as the spring has broken and I can not close the dishwasher door. I have trouble removing the old interlocking assembly though. I can not see any screws that keep it into place as with other models. Instead, it looks like that it is "clipped" to the dishwasher door via the two inner side round holes at the bottom.

My son and daughter in law bought a new home with all ge appliances and the dishwasher is americana. the dishwasher from the start has never worked properly. the water is cold and the drying cycle doesn't heat up. also, it doesn't drain completely. I think that this dishwasher should be repaired or replaced free of charge.


I agree, especially if it is less than 1 year old. See if the builder of the house will make arrangements for repair or replacement under his guarantee. If not then try the store or company that supplied the dishwasher. If the appliance was registe ... Maytag Dishwasher

My Kenmore 16533 dishwasher all of sudden started running really loud on the wash cycle. I stopped the cycle, drained the unit, and looked for something obstructing--found nothing. Started it up, and the problem persists. The dishes do come out clean, however. The dishwasher is 6 yrs old. Is this a problem I could fix, or do I need a repairman? Is it worth the expense of a repairman, or is it time for a new unit?

I recently had the e4 error code on my new world dw60 dishwasher. I have since opened it up and replaced the heater element, which appears to have resolved that issue.

Our Phillips SL2000 dishwasher (~20 years old?) has a leak from the door right hand bottom end when its splashing. The seals appear to be OK to touch and slightly pressing the door inwards does not reduce the leak. What could be the reason and is it worth repairing? The inside looks really good for its age and I am trying to extend its life at least a few years with minimal cost. Please advise.


When one of the sprayer arms develops a leak and sprays water in a downward direction toward the bottom of the door it can leak because it's not made to be sprayed on the seal in that direction. You might get wet but hold the arms still and watch for ... Dishwashers

I have a'05 Kenmore Elite dishwasher. Never had a problem before. The clean button keeps flashing. Thought it was an interrupted cycle so I pressed the "Cancel/Drain" button and the motor ran, no water.

Once the "start" is pressed, the "reset" option on the same button will not turn it off. This dishwasher is in a new place we're buying, and we're not ready to run a whole cycle to see if the machine works because there's a minor plumbing repair needed under the sink which can't be done till the closing, and there could be a leak. Meanwhile the two green lights and beeping can't be turned off.


Just un-plug it for now,....then of coarse when you can run it plug it back in for test,....ya never know, just un-plugging it could very well reset itself and work fine. this is the way with alot of the newer things,....good luck ... GE GLD5800L Dishwasher
