Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher
I have a steady 3 second light on every time i press normal wash or any of the other press buttons the light blinks and goes back to steady read and diswasher is not working....
any ideas.. I have the same problem right now. It's been a couple of years since it last happened. If I recall I just let it sit for 24 hours and it went away. Not a fix though. I came to this sight to see if someone knew how to fix it now and not wait it out. On mine if I push the tough scrub button several lights will blink. If I push the drain off button 5 times it will light each button one at at time while it's timing down from 50 seconds. All this must mean something to the guy who wrote the program. Unless he just has a wierd sense of humor and did this to drive us Maytag owners nuts.
If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:
Power from the house
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.
Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.
Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.
Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.
