Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB4000 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Maytag MDB4000AWB-won't drain-now water isn't coming into machine

My dishwasher isn't draining so we had to **** all the water out of the bottom with a shop vac. I just felt around to see if there was anything big in there obstructing it. Couldn't figure out how to get into the drain area. Tried to start the dishwasher up to see if while messing with bottom maybe loosened anything up that might have been obstructing it. When turing on noticed no water was going into dishwasher and it smelled like it was burning up and bottom element was sizzling. Do you think it is fixable or are we ready for a new one?
Thanks.

Hi there,

You may be due for a new d/w because this particular model has the pump & motor as an assembly. Only a qualified repairman would have to take a look, as it's quite complex to take apart. On the other hand, if you do call someone in, it may just a drain hose or simply something caught in the intake.

Dish washer will not drain after the cycle is complete. There is about 2 inches of water remaining at the bottom of the dishwasher.


You may need to remove the drain hose from the bottom of your sink,put it in a bucket and try to drain your dishwasher.If this still does not work and you have a wet dry shop vac you can use it to drain the water from the hose this will also allow you to check for anything restricting the flow of water thourgh the hose.Once the water is gone you may need to remove the dishwasher from the cabinet and check the drain pump for something that is stoping the impellar wheel from turning.If there is nothing stopping the impellar thenyou will need to replace the drain pump.

I hope this hepls with your problems good luck.

Plugged with a pool of water on the bottom.


You can use a wet dry shop vac and attach it to the end of the drain hose to remove all the water.
then you need to check the drain pump for any thing that may be blocking or stopping the flow of water if you do not find anything there then you may need to replace the drain pump

GE Triton Dishwasher will not drain they water after it's cycle...thoughts?


Peace,
Cut off the power at the breaker for 5 minutes and then turn it on and see if the system resets!
The machine was in your home 3 years , and used for more than that by someone else! I can tell you by the model that its at least 10 years old!
appliances more than 9 years old cost you money to run and fix! Throw it out and do not put good money into bad!

The new ones no matter how inexpensive will wash better and cost you a hell of a lot less to operate. They are so much more energy efficient today that they pay for them selves in a couple of years! With a new machine watch your water and power bill go down!!!
Other wise you need hands on service!
if you got the money do it new!

Bless You!
