Question about Maytag MDBH975AWS Stainless Steel Dishwasher

1 Answer

Service number kuds301xbl2

Washer does not start-has power as lights work. Started when my wife who is vertically challenged, leaned against the door when the washer was not running and pressed the Cancel/Drain pad. The Cancel/Drain cycle started so she opened the door because there was nothing to drain to stop the cycle. The washer has not run since that time. This is what happens-Door open; Shut door completely; Push Start/Resume once; Normal Wash light lights; Push Start/Resume second time; Start light comes on for one Beep and goed off but the intermittant Beep continues for 15 Beeps when all lights and Beeps stop and no wash or anything happens. Any help? Thank you.

I would find the electrical breaker for this unit and shut it off for a minute, then re set the breaker thus resetting your unit.

SOURCE: When it calls for a

Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched.
Is the selected cycle incomplete?
To drain while the dishwasher is running, press the Start/Cancel pad once. The dishwasher will drain, and then shut off. To drain while the dishwasher is not running a selected cycle, make sure the door is completely closed and latched, and then press the Start/Cancel pad twice. The dishwasher will drain, and then shut off.
Is there a new garbage disposal?
Make sure the knockout plug is removed in the new disposal. For many dishwashers, the drain hose is connected to the disposal. The knockout plug must be removed from inside the food waste disposer inlet.
Is the drain system blocked?
Run the disposer to clear the drain system.
Do you have an air gap at your sink?
Check to see if the air gap is blocked by foreign material. To clean the drain air gap, follow the cleaning instructions provided by the manufacturer. With most types, you lift off the chrome cover, unscrew the plastic cap, and then check for any soil buildup. Clean if necessary.
Is there a loop in the drain hose less than 20" above the floor?
Make sure the drain hose is looped so that it touches the underside of the counter before connecting to the sink drain or disposer.
Is there a kink in the drain hose?
Replace a kinked drain hose.
Did you reuse an existing drain hose?
Make sure to use the new drain hose that came with the dishwasher.
Is the sink drain clogged?
If the sink is not draining well, a plumber may need to be contacted. Most dishwashers connect to the sink drain. If the sink drain is clogged, the dishwasher can't pump out water.

Washer does not go on control locked light stays

You may have inadvertently locked the control panel. Before assuming you have a malfunction, read the following: The Control Lock is actually a safety feature that allows the consumer to lock the control panel to prevent small children from manipulating the controls. It can inadvertently be set following a power outage, or by leaning against the control panel. The following link explains how to turn the feature on/off:

These instructions are printed on the front panel of the appliance and in the owner's manual. If this does not correct your problem, then you may have a more serious problem than a simple operator control issue. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this corrects the problem for you.
