Question about Maytag 24 in. MDBH950AWS Built-in Dishwasher
My Maytag Jet Clean dishwasher stopped cleaning dishes. It goes through the complete cycle but without any water being delivered to the dishes. I removed the lower wash arm and all parts down to the chopper. Before removal, the impeller seemed to be binding somewhat. I also removed several label pieces, pieces of some broken dish, and a twist tie from various parts in the tub. During assembly, the impeller turned freely. With all parts assembled, the machine fills properly with water but there is no washing action. I can hear a noise from the motor but it is apparently not turning. Do I have a burned out motor or a failed motor starting capacitor?
It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
