Dishwasher wont drain

We purchased a Maytag quiet 100 about 3 years ago. We only used it a dozen times before it quit. We didnt use it for a time and then discovered the child proof lock was on. After fixing that it now wont drain. It had water and stuff in it for a time intill vacuuming everything out. Any thoughts? thanks.

Maytag jetclean quiet plus fills but wont wash or drain.


The mother board is going out, or the drain pump is failing. Try un plugging it...... by which i mean turning the power off to the unit and doing a soft reset. See if it recycles into the normal mode and works.

We got our maytag 300 quiet series about 3 years ago from home depot. about a year ago the option buttons/lights on the right side went dead. It was out of warranty and still worked so i ignored it. Now...


Our Maytag dishwasher (an earlier model) quit too. Found that the door latch operates two micro-switches which supply power to the machine and one of the switches no longer made contact when operated. The switch pair and the plastic latch parts are sold as a package for about $15 on the internet. A number of lights in the door are held in place by a small colored lens for each light and the lenses have disintegrated leaving the lights to hang by the wires inside the door cavity. Plan to use contact cement to glue the lights in place. I don't know if this will help you, but it doesn't take long to open the door cavity. Make sure to remove power to the machine before opening it up.

Do you have an air gap between the disposal and the dishwasher? If not required raise the hose and as high as you can. It must be above the water level in the sink. Try attaching it to the underside of the counter. At some point the hose should be above 32 inches. It the problem is with the dishwasher itself. Don't fix, replace. They are not really designed to last over 10 years. The new ones , especially in the last year or two are a BIG improvement over any older one. So quiet you can't tell they are even running, they clean so much better and are much more energy efficient. Stainless steel interiors are just a fad. The plastic tubs are actually less likely to leak and are by there nature more quiet.

It may sound loud and like something is terrably wrong - but when we researched and took the pieces of the sprayer arm out all the way down to the drain - we found 2 small pieces of nut shells - that's it ! They were making the dishwasher sound as if it had something really wrong with it. We removed the nut shells - put all the parts back together - it runs perfect!! Just remember to place the parts and screws in the order they came out - so you put it back together correctly

Quiet Series 100


It sound like a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle, it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor (and pump) located beneath the dishwasher. Check if pump spins when it should force the water up into the sprayer arms. In case it doesn't spin you should replace the pump. Good luck !
