Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
Hit cancel drain
ran garbage disposal
water is dirty
If you cannot get the diswasher to drain there is some obstruction in the drain line going to the disposal. First turn the power off to the diswasher at the breaker panel then open doors under sink and follow drain line to the disposal there you will find a hose clamp(silver) that you must loosten with a flat blade screw driver ( get a bucket under the disposal) pull the drain line loose and dump out excess water and debris inspect area going into the disosal to make shure it is not clogged up
reverse your proceedure and reconnect the drain
Before trying the dishwasher take some ice cubes and run thewater then put in disposal and turn on that should clean the disposal
try your dishwasher I forgot to mention that theri is a strainer at the bottom of you dishwasher that you can remove to be sure it is not clogged up I assume that you have aready checked that

Tips for a great answer:
Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.
