Question about Maytag Dishwasher

Open Question

Maytag JetClean EQ Plus MDBD880AWB has very touchy sensor

I have a pretty old dishwasher It came with the house when we bought it and the house was built in 1998 so it very well could be the age of the house. I think it might have a problem with the sensor but not sure. In order to get the dishwasher to run an entire cycle, we have to prop a chair with a VERY HEAVY item on it next to the door and not walk into the room while it is running or it might stop the cycle from the lack of equilibrium in the floor. Is there a home fix for this? We don't have the money right now for a new dishwasher and I would like to try to get another year out of it if possible. Thanks for your help.

    I know I posted this almost 3 years ago but I forgot about this site. My husband fixed the problem. There is a sensor that was not allowing the washer to see the door was shut. If we put a plastic knife in the slot before starting the machine, the sensor sees the door being shut. Maybe we can get another year or so out of the dishwasher without having to replace it.Thank you for all your comments.

I have the same dishwasher with the same problem, try pushing the delay/resume button, then the drain/off button. When the lights go off start your wash cycle.

You have debris down in the pump area. To get to the problem you will work from inside the dish washer and start by removing the spray arm and then using torx driver you will need to remove upper components of the pump/motro assembly to get to the debris. good luck

Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus - Lights flashing


either the control board or the control panel needs replacement. Most likely the latter. There is a possibility that both parts failed also. Usually water gets inside the touchpad, corroding and shorting the touchpad. Good luck

Our Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus will not turn on (MDB9150AWS) and we cannot find a repair manual to troubleshoot through the problem. Maytag does not offer repair manuals on this model. Any...


Try this. From what I have found Maytag discontinued the Repair manual but it appears that all MDB and MDC models fell under this one repair manual.

Try pressing delay/resume then drain/off. In some cases you might need to do delay/resume then drain/off twice.

I just bought a used maytag jetclean eq plus, and i can not find the plug on it? Where would it be? i looked everywhere


Hi chapper_7,
The dishwasher will not have a plug on it. It will have a small box that you will run power into. The box is usually located on the bottom of the dishwasher near the front right or left. You will open the box and install a cord, or you can direct wire the dishwasher to your home wireing. The box is usually made of metal and it has a round hole in it for the cord to run through. Good luck and I really hope this will Fix,Ya.
