Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher

1 Answer

Stops mid-cycle (all cycles)

I have a MDB7100AWB that has been working fine for the last 7 years. Now all of the sudden it will not complete a wash cycle in any mode (including auto clean). It consistantly stops at 85 on normal wash & at 65 on light wash and then clicks/buzzes about every 3 seconds, like it wants to continue - but never does. Any clues as to what to try? Is 7 years all I can expect to get?

Hello welcome

First I would recommend putting the washer in a diagnostic test mode to see if there is a stored error code indicating where the failure is. Once the cycle starts, it should progress on its own to the end of the cycle without needing any assistance. All you can really do is make sure the water supply (hot & cold) is on & the drain hose is not kinked or restricted. Here is a copy of the service manual showing the test modes & error codes. You can order the owners manual with part number 8566938 at www.sears.com

    Stops mid cycle. Light flashes, cant get it to move on so have to start all over again


    Hi there.
    I have the same problem with my machine. Whatever program I select, the machine runs fine until it reaches 54 mins of the cycle remaining. To overcome the problem just to select a cycle that will not stop mid cycle, select a program which is less than 54 mins. I think the 40 degrees and quick wash select is the one to run with. The cycle is 45 mins, obviously less that 54 mins. The LED timer will display the cycle time. No problems with this cycle whatsoever. Not the total solution, but at least you're able to complete a cycle. After it's completed, I also run the spin program at 1200rpm. I hope this helps.
    Regards, Ian.

    Hoover hpe 236. water not draining, stops mid cycle, lights flash


    Have you checked the pump filter, and or that the pump is actually working. if it spins o/k with no water in, then I would suspect a draining problem.
    If filter clean and pump o/k, then it could be a control module fault. if this were the case, then it would probably be wiser to purchase a new washer.
    Hope this is of some help to you.

    Dishwasher doesnt drain on wash cycle,ok on rinse cycle


    Change the circuit board, timer/progrsmer.
    Take it out and clean contacts,
    Look for burnt circuit line and solder a fine bead carefully on the circuit board, difficult. Use the pot and pan program.

    Stops mid-cycle


    Hi SaviorSound,

    I'm Harvey the Master Plumbr.

    Your question is: You have a MDB7100AWB that has been working fine for the last 7 years. Now all of the sudden it will not complete a wash cycle in any mode (including auto clean). It consistantly stops at 85 on normal wash & at 65 on light wash and then clicks/buzzes about every 3 seconds, like it wants to continue - but never does. Any clues as to what to try? Is 7 years all I can expect to get?

    Perhaps. Your d/w is stoping at the point where it should be turning on the 'heat dry' phase. This can be expensive. At this point I would be compairing the cost effectivness of repair verses replacement. Wish I had better news for you.

    Cycle not completing and spinning erratically


    We had the same problem. We unblocked the filter (found a hair grip, a belt buckle and a sock) and with luck it will be fine now. To unblock the filter pull down the little white round flap on the front of the machine and unscrew the filter. Beware though water may pour out when you unscrew the filter.
