Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher

1 Answer

Stops mid-cycle 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?

    Thanks. I don't think it is stopping at the point where it should be turning on the 'heat dry' phase because it is only 20 minutes from the start of the cylce - I don't think that it is even time for the rinse phase at this point.

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.

    Hi again Savior Sound,



    With this info we're talking computer failure which useually entails replaceing the top door panel. You might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repairman. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner but you might take a rack at it.

    13 yr old dishwasher suddenly stopped working mid pre wash. Water left in bottom of machine. Power point is fine. Will not start at all now though. No lights turn on either. Is it fixable ?


    If it is 13 years old, it has most likely reached its end of life--whatever the cause, something has malfunctioned. However, a service technician would probably be able to advise.

    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 (all cycles)


    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

    A e g washing machine


    If the washer doesn't operate or make any noise when set on any cycle, or if it stops suddenly when it should continue onto the next cycle, it may not be receiving electrical power or, if the motor stopped mid-cycle, the machine's overload protector may have tripped. In this case, take out some of the articles to reduce the load and let the protector reset itself, then restart. Otherwise:
    1) Be sure it is plugged in and turned on. If necessary, check the receptacle it's plugged into for power, using a working lamp, appliance, or voltage tester. Be sure the washer lid is closed completely.
    2) If the receptacle seems dead, check the circuit breaker or fuse that serves that circuit.
    3) Unplug the washer and check the power cord. If necessary, replace the cord if you feel qualified.
    4) Open the lid and check the lid switch and the tab on the lid that it pushes against. Press and release the switch: if it doesn't click when you do this, it's probably broken. If you're experienced at home repair, you can remove the switch, test it, and replace it if needed; otherwise, call an appliance repair service person.
    5) If the washer still doesn't work, the controls may be faulty. Call a service person.

    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.
