Sounds like the capacitor in the motor may be bad and you should replace the motor assm.

Humming noise after water fill and will not wash


Hi. this is a failed timer device. simply replacing the timer control module will eliminate these issues you are having.

It fills & dumps the water with no problem BUT it will not wash the dishes it just makes a humming noise.


OK, i would test the motor to make sure that it is working properly. this is a two speed motor and, if the windings are bad or separating, it will not be able to switch speeds. if the motor checks out ok, this will confirm control failure. replace timer or control board in this case.

No washing after water fills up


Before replacing the impeller the technician will test the pump by energizing it. If the problem was not the impeller, then check timer control board and wiring harness.

Will not fill with water and the tablet does not drop it starts up and then just stays on that same cycle position


yakers hope you can read this too the first thing dish washers do when you turn them to start is drain to get any left over water in the sump out then they fill then start wash cycle bazamoza id say you have a bad timer motor you can advance it manually one click at a time if you hear the water valve kick in then replace the timer if not reply to this post for further action
yakers check the float in the tub to make sure its engaging the safety micro switch pull the kick plate off at the bottom and find the rod from the dome in the tub and see if its engaging the micro safety switch that keep it from over filling
if all that's good then reply to post

Kenmore dishwasher 58715142400 fills but doesn't wash


Motor has gone out..just like mine...Make sure u have voltage going to the motor, (disconnect the plug from the motor) and use an electric meter to make sure you have voltage going to the motor. If so the motor has either gone out or has been blocked by something! If no noise except clicking then motor has gone out. Looking at about $150 for motor.

Re: Maytag dishwasher


does the timer advance the control knob? check to see that nothing is in the way of the center spray tower. does it sound like any water is spraying around inside?
