Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB5601AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher
When you press start, you can hear it start to fill, then stops filling and makes a jackhammer sound from the pipes.
Has been working good for the past 3 years. We only use it once a week.
OK. I bet there is a chunk of mineral build up that it loose inside the water line leading up to the valve. Either the one in the dishwasher, or the one at the cutoff under the sink.
Turn the water off under the sink. Access the bottom of the dishwasher, and disconnect the water line from the valve. Put the end of the line in a bucket or some type of tray, and turn the water on to see if the chunk comes out. Try to turn the water on as hard as you can to try and blow the chunk free. If nothing comes out, look inside the valve where you disconnected it to see if you can see anything.
If it doesn't come out, or you don't see it come out, try connecting everything back up and testing to see if you might have missed it coming out.
Same thing could be happening at the valve under the sink, and that one is a little harder to purge.
One other thing to listen for is to be laying on the floor neat the dishwasher when the stop occurs, listening for what goes "clunk". It might be in the dishwasher, it might be under the sink. At least by isolating where it happens, you'll know where to look.
