Hello,
Theres a Floater inside the tub protecting against overflow. when it is pushed up or stuck by debris, and does not fall down to its inactive position, it can prevent water from filling. So be sure there is no debris and move the floater up and down until it falls down in its normal position.

Also dishwashers can lose their pump prime and will not fill with water if there is no priming water in the bottom of the unit. To solve this problem, you must add several quarts of water to the unit. Let it settle down in the bottom until it stops going down. Start the washer and you will hear this water pump out of the drain and the unit will now fill with fresh water..

Thank you..Regards!!..

My dishwasher won't drain. Repair man is telling me the motor's burned out. Does this sound right?


Chance are there. If repair man says motor is burnt, he can always show you the motor. You can easily smell the burnt smell.

Let him replace the motor and collect the old motor. that is the only way you can make sure. Hope the repairman has checked all the the other points. Before replacing the motor, find out the reasons for motor getting burnt! No water seepage into the coil, no high voltage in your area etc.

Dishwasher not working


The motor may be burned out or there may be another electrical issue which would also cause the symptoms you describe. Call around and try to get an estimate, and at the same time look at new ones on sale.............one question is how secure will u feel with that maching......now that it has acted up like this.

Dishwasher has terrible smell and water lays inside tub.


The drain is plugged. You will have to pull out the dishwasher and clean out the drain port. A repair person could also do this for the price of a house call. The smell is coming from the dirty water in the tub. You'll have to bail this out before making the repair.

Maytag dishwasher MDB9100A---tub refills after cycle completed


Problem is actually a water valve that is near the water inlet. Cost is about 35 bucks to fix unless you listen to the guy on here and pay for parts that you don't need and pay them 20bucks for bad advice. Our total cost to fix this $35 dollar problem was an entire wasted Sat, 2 trips to the appliance repair parts place, $130 for the electrical control board that the "wiz" here said I needed--electronic parts and non returnable so we now have a new one that we didn't need.
