We have a Maytag MDB7601AWW Dishwasher that is not filling with water. We've checked all the hoses and water is getting to the machine, just not in it. What do we do now?

Just inside the dishwasher usually on the bottom right in the front is a mushroom shaped "float" lift it up and down a few times making sure it ends up in the down position. if you move it slowly you should hear some clicks. do that and try to run the dishwasher if that does not fix the issue then your going to have to get a meter and see if you have 120v to the fill valve when you start the dishwasher. if you have the 120v then replace the fill valve

No water getting to dishwasher


First is to see if water is getting to the dishwasher.
Locate the fill hose which should be under the sink along side the dishwasher.
After shutting off the water, disconnect the hose and see if you have good water pressure into the fill hose by turning it back on into a bucket.
Let's say you do.
Now locate the valve at the dishwasher where that hose is connected to it.
That valve is usually under the dishwasher at the very rear, usually on the left.
That solenoid/valve has the fill hose, two wires, and a small (usually black) hose going from it up to the machine itself.
You'll need to see if that valve is getting electricity when it should be filling the machine.
There are two wires to the valve.
They should likely be getting 110 volts when the dishwasher is supposed to be filling.
If they are, the valve may be bad, if they are not, likely is a problen with the timer itself.

When you turn on the dish washer it heats up but there is no water coming into the machine- quiet series 300


Hi



When the Dishwasher is not filling in, you'll need to check for the water inlet valve, the filter screen and the float switch/assembly. Also check for the float assembly inside the dishwasher. When water is filling your dishwasher, a float rises along with it. As the float reaches a certain threshold level, it shuts off the flow of water, thereby preventing a leak. Sometimes the float can get stuck in the wrong position in your dishwasher, and it can prevent your dishwasher from filling. Sometimes it can happen due to float valve and on other occasions due to float switch. Inspect the water hose coming to the dishwasher for any blockages.
If these are fine then it's due to Water Inlet Valve. Use a multimeter and check for the continuity on inlet valve. If you don't get any value on the multimeter then you'll need to replace the water inlet valve assembly.


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

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.
