Hello, First thing you want to do is check your circuit breakers to see if the one for the dishwasher has tripped. Also look under the sink.. Many dishwashers are plugged in to an outlet under the sink and sometimes the plug can get pulled out. Check these things first and let me know what you find. Good luck.

    Ok, next thing to try is to see if the outlet is getting power. Unplug the dishwasher and then plug a lamp into that same exact outlet and see if you are getting power to the plug. Let me know what you find.

Dishwasher starts and gets somewhat filled then starts making a high pitched screaming


The reason the dishwasher gives the high pitch screaming is because there is some sort of system error in it.

Try to troubleshoot it from the procedure in the users manual, to detect the fault and fix it.

Take care

I have a maytag dishwasher and the light wash light stays on even after a wash cycle. Tried to press normal wash and goes back to light wash. What could be wrong?

Buttons could be shorting out and not makeing proper contact from just being old,How old is you unit?? Alway put age with your question,,on anything! Nobody wants to beleive there unit is old,Humane nature I guess, Always keep manual with purchase date in it handy.If it lasted more than 5 years your very lucky.specially if you use it everyday.
