Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB7600A Jetclean® II Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Maytag model mdb7160aww dishwasher wont start periodically

Every now and then (maybe once every 2 weeks) our dishwasher will not start. We push the autoclean button & nothing happens. We then turn the circut breaker off. The next day we turn the circuit breaker back on and, lo and behold...more times than not...everything works fine. We thought, at first, it might be a circuit breaker problem but it appears that there is power to the unit when the dishwasher won't start. Any ideas as to what could be causing this?

    Yesterday (fri) it wouldn't start gain....so I turned the circuit breaker off. This morning (sat) I turned the circuit breaker back on and it still wouldn't start. I then pushed every button and the only one that would come on was the Drain/Off button. Perhaps that is a clue as to what the problem is.

    I have same problem. My dishwasher 2.5 years old. Called Maytag corporate and was told to unplug it for 10 minutes then plug back in. Didn't work. They told me I would need to have a service man out. No longer under warranty. Just got repair estimate for touchpad...320.00 and part will need to be ordered..7-10 days before repair. I may replace the unit instead of repairing. Will not buy another Maytag and certainly not with electronic controls!!

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.

"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

SOURCE: Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables

most likely you have a bad motor when replacing the motor ihave found it is cheaper to get the pump with the motor attached where as they charge you more money for just the motor or the pump seprately try allbrands appliance parts they seem to be cheaper

Water is not getting into the unit at all - maytag dishwasher model mdb7160aww


Make sure you get water to the dishwasher. Check to see if the water shut-off valve (located under the sink) is open. If you get water to the dishwasher, but there is still no water inside during the fill cycle, the problem might be with a faulty water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side), in which case replace the water valve.

Lights blink, wont wash


almost certainly its the board again. If you do decide to replace it again, suggest you install a surge plug on your power cord. Does wonders when you have power fluctuations.

Maytag quiet series 300


Maytag Quiet Series 300. The lights flash in sequence starting from the outside traveling inward. The timer counts backwards from 50 to 1. Then the sequence starts over. and continues over and over. I'm able to clear it when the time reaches 1 or 2. It stays off for a while (3-4 hours) then starts over. I can not clear the countdown until it reaches 1 or 2. After I clear it the dishwasher will work, but until then, no way. This happens with the door open or closed.
