You have a blockage somewhere probably. if the drain hose plumbed in under the sink, check there is no blockage in this area. also check the drain hose for blockages. if all clear, the fault is probably the drain pump itself

Water does not drain out

Hello. I have had this happen to ours fullsize Maytag 2 or 3 times over the past few years, but maybe this could help. In all my cases it was one of two things:

1. The drain is clogged. Food, broken glass, etc. can clog the drain. You'll see the grated cover or similar inside on bottom of washer. There's usually only a screw or 2 you need to remove to take of grate and get to insides. Remove all debris you find.

2. If it goes into the drain cycle but you hear nothing, or almost nothing, likely the drain pump has gone out. Only had to replace one of these. This means $ and a repair dude/dudette will try to charge you a fortune but its a super easy install. The hardest part is you have to slide the washed enough out of the counter enclosure so you can lean it over enough so you can get to the water pump underneath (however looks like yours is a portable so may be easy to get at)You can find a replacement drain pump online (including on ebay) for like $25 bucks. Just disconnect the hoses and power wire, replace the old one (again just a few screws), reconnect everything and you are done.

There's lots of vids on YouTube showing both how to clean drain and how to replace a drain pump. Hopefully for your specific model even. Try these things and hopefully you will be back in business.

Cursory Google search turned up part link below, there's also a service manual online (2nd link). Good luck!

My maytag dishwasher won't drain. It is not clogged. It just won't drain

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Maytag dishwasher that won't drain when finished

HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.

1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

Won't drain

In most cases the blockage is at the end of the drainhose, where it connects th the "peatrap", simply removing the hose clamp, then hose and inspecting. If no blockage found there you will need assistance. If you want, you can funnel your hand over the end of the hose, blowing down hard through this funnel can sometimes dislodge blockage. ALWAYS rinse dishes before loading any dishwasher.

Maytag Dishwasher won't drain

on all dishwasher think of them as a simple gutter system. the water only has one drain. At the bottom, if the pump can't pump out the water, its simply a bad pump or a clogged drain hose. Food particle can clog the "drain screen", use a good quality shop vac, clean 'drain screen', remove drain hose and clean thoroughly. If the hose goes into your drain pipe, remove that and clean that really good with snake it its metal or a strong 1/2 zip tie if its plastic.

Dishwasher does not cycle

Yes, you'll need to replace the motor. Though you may not need to remove the machine from under the counter.
