Our dishwasher is about 4.5 years old, and it just stopped taking in water. Everything else seems to be working just fine, and it will 'go through' the entire cycle....but it never fills with water. I've checked to confirm that the valve is still open, and it is.
We have a baby, and my wife is breastfeeding...so there are countless bottles and accessories to clean constantly. We're pulling our hair out trying to keep up with the dish washing by hand.
Anyone have an idea of what the cause or (better yet) the solution could be?
Check inside your water supplyhose fitting going into the unit. There may be a filtering screen that could be plugged, thus stopping all incoming water. Just unscrew it and look or check and make sure there is not another filter somewhere in your water supply liine

Sounds like an internal timer malfunction.

Hello jscott, It is typical nowdays for most dishwashers not to drain all water out of the bottom tub (Even where you cant see) due to siphon design and energy efficiency. Try using about a liter of vinegar and throw it on the bottom tub of the dishwasher. Let it run through a full cycle and see how that works. Has worked for me
A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them. If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged. Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.
If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.
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.
Your problem is: You have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water. You have cleaned the filter inside the dishwasher where it drains and have checked the hose to the disposal and it pumps out fine. It just doen't pump itself at the end of the cycle.
It sounds like a bad control board. It's in the top of the door panel. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory to find a repairman.
