Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Dishwasher display lights but will not accept wash options

Gentlemen,

RE: Maytag dishwasher, model #WU1004, serial #101984

When I press the ''ON'' button on the membrane pad of the dishwasher, the display indicates a steady ''0'' (normally blinks) and the water valve remains closed. Nothing happens when I select a wash option. If I don't press any buttons, the display will blank out after about 15 seconds.
If I press the ''OFF'' button, the display will indicate ''dr'' (the pump does not start) and a second press will blank out the display.

I have tested the door switches, water level switch and water valves with an ohm meter and they seem to be OK. I have also tried disconnecting power to the machine with no success.

HELP! Wife says, ''No dishwasher, no Thanksgiving!''

Thanks!

Sincerely,
Peter Oliger

SOURCE: Kenmore Ultra Wash Dishwasher LIghts are blinking....

I just read this for the same problem: push sanitize, then heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, sanitize, heat and dry, cancel, then open and close the door. It worked. The dishwasher is running correctly even as I type this.

Dear friend,
ngfam at you service! happy to assist!


The blinking lights are called codes and this is warning you that there is a technical problem. Probably an electronic failure some where. This can only be diagnosed by a trained service tech!

We sell appliances for 65 years and I recommend this nation wide Factory repair service!

Call A&E Factory Service /They service nation wide
And are available 24/7 for making appointments!

If the appliance is 10 years old or more,it may make sense not to invest any money to fix it!

Happy to assist you,
PLEASE GIVE ME A GOOD RATING BEFORE YOU SIGN OFF!

SOURCE: dishwasher powers up when switched

Hi mcdoddle,

I'm Harvey the master Plumber.

Your problem is: dishwasher powers up when switched on via control panel. When start is selected, the lights indicate wash but nothing happens. This may sound stupid but first make sure no one turned the water off to the d/w. If OK then you likely have a clogged or failed solanoid valve. The d/w must be removed for replacement. I don't recomend this for the average homeowner. You might consider utilizing our Repair Directory to find a repairman.

Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables

    Blinking "Normal" light on a Maytag model


    Hi


    Open the door. Within 3 seconds press the following sequence --Try pressing normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry, normal wash, heated dry three times within 6 seconds and then press cancel to reset the dishwasher. If that doesn't help then try pressing Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry, Saini Rinse, Heated Dry or Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry, Saini Rinse, Air Dry 3 times in 6 seconds and then the Cancel Button. Close the door and press Cancel.
    Blinking lights would stop and should be able to use your dishwasher normally. If the light is still blinking try and reset the power to the dishwasher and try again. If still the light is blinking then check for the connections on the keypad, it may be due to moisture or shorted connections on keypad.



    Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

    I suspect you have your dishwasher set for a 1 hour delay start. Press cancel and restart in a regular/normal cycle and see if it programs.

    Dishwasher ran all night still not finished. Error code 4H displaying.


    Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. The 4H is indicating your dishwasher is in the delayed wash start mode. Here is some information from Sears about what to do:


    • The number letter combination indicates that the dishwasher is in a "Delay Start" mode, as well as how many hours were set for the delay start.
    • The dishwasher will not start the wash until it reaches the delayed hour that it was set for. Example: 1H = 1 hour delay start, 2H = 2 hour delay start, etc.
      • To start the dishwasher immediately and not wait for the Delay Start time, cancel the "Delay Start" option, by pressing the Cancel button. Then program the cycle and options and press Start.
      • To start the dishwasher after the Delay time, select the cycle and options desired. Select the "Delay Start" option and on some dishwashers it requires, pressing the Start button.
      • Some dishwashers will display a countdown of the delay time on the display.
    Note: Refer to the Owner's Manual or Use & Care Guide for specific instructions on using the "Delay Start" feature.

    If you need more assistance we will need your exact model number in any of your future responses.
    Thanks for choosing FixYa,

    Last nigh my Maytag dishwasher model # MDB7100Aww serial # 15666931YM caught fire. Luckily I heard it and was able to put the fire out before my house caught fire. Has there been a recall on this model...


    Hi,

    Yes, there was a product recall for your Dishwasher due to fire hazard. Please visit the following pages for further information:

    https://repair.maytag.com/repair/dishwasher.jsp?siteCd=MT_EN_US

    https://repair.maytag.com/repair/dish_faq.jsp?siteCd=MT_EN_US


    The list includes model numbers beginning MDB7 with serial numbers ending in YM, so yours is one of the units affected.

    With regard to repair / replacement / compensation, Maytag state the following:

    Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using these dishwashers, disconnect the electric supply by shutting off the fuse or circuit breaker controlling it and inform all users of the dishwasher about the risk of fire. Contact Maytag for either a free in-home repair, or a $75 cash back reimbursement following the purchase of a new Maytag®, Jenn-Air®, Whirlpool® or KitchenAid® dishwasher. Consumers should not return the dishwasher to the retailer where it was purchased, as retailers are not prepared to take units back.
    Consumer Contact: For more information, contact Maytag Corporation at (800) 675-0535 anytime, or visit the firm's Web site at www.repair.maytag.com.

    Hope this helps - I would advise phoning them on the number above to find out what your exact position is as this recall was issued in 2007. However, there should not be any time limitations on claims and this still appears to be an active recall. They have admitted the dishwashers are dangerous and thereby accepted liability.

    Regards,

    Some of the buttons on the touchpad will not work. What can we do? Normal wash and Insta wash and Auto wash will not light up, nor does the time display for these two options go on. Heated Dry and Sanitize...


    Unfortunately the only way to fix that problem is to replace the console which includes the button pad. I can look up the part number and approx cost of the part if you confirm your model number from the tag just inside the door and the color of the dishwasher.

    Water is not coming into my Maytag dishwasher.


    Hi,
    Is the door open or unlatched?Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons or utensils), that may be interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure. The lights for cycles selected will flash if the door is opened while running a cycle.
    Is there power to the dishwasher?Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.
    Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob?The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.
    Is the control lock option activated?
    The indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked. Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.
    Is the delay start option activated?To cancel the delay and cycle, press Start/Cancel twice.
    Is the water shutoff valve turned on?Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

    All the lights are flashing on Maytag Quiet Series 300


    Try pressing heated wash, heated dry, then heated wash, heated dry. It should reset it. Also try pressing and holding the cancel button for 5 seconds to see if that works if the other doesnt.
