Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB5601A Free-Standing Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher only runs in rinse only mode!

My dishwasher just starting doing this. I shut the door and select a wash mode and it starts running. Then a few seconds later, it switches to rinse only mode. I doesn't matter what mode I start in, it switches to rinse only. I have tried turing it off at the switch and letting is sit a while and restarting, but it still does this. I have let it run through the rinse cycle and starting over to no avial. Do I just need a bigger hammer? Thanks, Joe

I have a Samsung dishwasher DMR77 series and when I push the button to wash the dishes it directly goes into the rinse mode. How do I fix this problem?


Try waiting it out - some dishwashers like to run a rinse first to get off the easy stuff, then it starts the wash cycle. Let it run it's cycle and see if it works.

The lights will blink when the door is closed and the start button is pushed


Try a reset. I have a kitchenaid. The reset is to press the sani-rinse, hea-dry, sani-rinse, heat -dry, then close the door. You can hear action the dishwasher doing something. Takes about 2-3 minutes, then stops. At this point I was able to select a wash cycle and start, close the door, and it started. Good luck

Water pump evacuates water but does not pump in the wash or rinse


You assume correct. The control board switches the direction, but if there's a mechanical problem like a bad start capacitor, then it won't run

Quick Rinse light was flashing at end of cycle. Opened and closed door and pushed Start. Quick Rinse and Cancel/Drain light are now flashing and machine won't start. Turned off power supply (30 seconds) /...


Ok try this, open the door and then hit these buttons in the following combination. HI TEMP - DRY - HI TEMP - DRY...then close door and press cancel...then wait for the pump to shut down. you should be able to run a cycle after this...If this fails to fix the problem give me the make and model # of the dishwasher, this can normally be found just inside the door.

sounds like a stuck key pad since you said the normal wash button flashed.. the other thing is try holding the door shut while you run it.. to see of it is maybe not latching properly..

My dishwasher shuts itself off


The lights will typically blink when the door comes open. It may be that when the washer warms up, parts of it expands and allows the door to open slightly. It may also be that the trigger that registers the door being shut is not being tripped.
