Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
I only use the quickwash cycle on my dishwasher so I don't know if this happens with all the cycles but when I start the dishwasher, it states how much time is remaining, then when the timer gets to about 21-22 minutes, it goes back to 34 minutes and starts that cycle over again, this time around it gets lower than 20 minutes, to about 14, then it goes back up to 26 and so on. I didn't actually let it run after that to see if it would finish, I just keep stopping it cause I need the dishes. I haven't had time to let it run it's course but I was wondering if you could shed a little light on my problem here. I called Maytag and they said they had never heard of that problem, they had me unhook it from the power source for 30 minutes to reset the computer, but it didn't change anything. Thank you
Aestaie, On the quick wash cycle the machine goes through a heated rinse at 160 degrees. I think what's happening here is that the board checks the thermistor and is finding that the water is not hot enough and say's, hey, I need more time to heat this water and resets itself. The element in the dishwasher will only heat the water 1 degree every 3 to 5 minutes. So after the initial wash, there is a 2 minute drain, it fills again and there is the heated rinse. If the water is 120 and the final rinse needs to be 160, we have some heating to do here. Therefore the reset. Sounds like the dishwasher is working OK, Catriver..post back
