Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB7600A Jetclean® II Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

Dishwasher shrot cycles then stops

Dishwasher appears to fill, then starts wash cycle. Cycle runs for a few seconds then stops. After about five seconds it starts again. It repeats this four times then turns off completely and all lights go off. Tried Maytag diagnostic (push Heavy wash 5 times, then Start) and it ended up with Light Wash & Clean lights blinking, but no error code in display. I replaced the handle a few months ago and just replaced one of the door switches that I had previously repaired. Thanks for your help. Nick

    Dishwasher fills, motor starts then shuts off after about 10 sec. Hit the drain button and the same thing happens..keps trying to run, then shuts down. Took off drain hose and completely disassembled pump...no clogs. Checked all wiring and protection/cutoff circuits. Worked fine prior to pulling it out to access the wall behind it for a plumbing repair.

    My MDB7600AWW is doing the exact same thing. Fills with water, runs for 3 seconds, stops for 10 or 15 seconds, then this repeats 3 or 4 times before it shuts down, with the water still in it. It will drain if I run the rinse cycle, but when I try to run the dishwasher again, the same think happens. Tried normal wash and light wash - no success. Checked to make sure the washing arms weren't blocked too. In four years we have also replaced the handle THREE TIMES, the ENTIRE upper rack once, due to a tiny broken wheel, and the computer panel once, all to the tune of over $400 in parts. Needless to say we will not be purchasing another Maytag dishwasher!

    I am having teh same problem, Replaced the door latch assy this morning hoping that it would solve the problem. Will cycle and start to run 3 times then stops. When I open the door the tub will have water in it, press the start button twice and it will drain.

Cycle starts, but does not fill with water


When I start a new cycle, I first hear the pump run to empty out all remaining water, and after that I hear the motor run for the regular washing cycle, but there is no water in the dishwasher. After a few minutes, the cycle stops, and the washer claims the dishes are 'clean'. When I try starting a new cycle over and over again, about one in 20 times, the cycle will run normally with water. But then the next time, the problem starts all over again. Once a cycle starts correctly, everything works fine, including the rinsing.

Fill Fault appears during wash cycle.


Is the filter in the hose where it screws onto the tap clean?, if this is okay then most likely the valve.

I turn the dishwasher on normal wash and never stop washing i let it run for 2 hours and stiil running


Your dish washer probably has a "turbidity sensor". This is an infrared sensor that checks the condition of the water and adjusts your wash cycle accordingly. There is probably build up on the sensor (especially if you have hard water) and this is causing it to run so long. The easiest fix for this is to run a cleaning cycle on the dishwasher. Start your empty dish washer on a heavy wash cycle and wait for it to start filling with water. As soon as it starts to fill, open the door and pour 1/2 gallon of white vinegar into the bottom of the unit. Close the door and let it run its cycle. At the end of the cycle, run a second cycle and see if things improved. If things still are not better, you may have a bad sensor. If you have more questions, write me back. Hope this helps!

Hello bckp,
Welcome to Fixya


If your dishwasher does not run or stops during a cycle

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing? Opening the door or
interrupting the power stopped the cycle. Close the door and
press START/RESUME.
Does the Start/Resume indicator flash 3 times when you
press START/RESUME? The dishwasher is waiting for you to
open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door,
then press START/RESUME.
Is the door closed tightly and latched?
(NOTE: On models with a dual-digit display, the control
displays “- -” during a cycle if it believes the door is not
latched.)
Is the right cycle selected? Refer to the “Cycle Selection
Charts.”
Is there power to the dishwasher? Has a household fuse
blown, or has a circuit breaker tripped?
Has the motor stopped due to an overload? The motor
automatically resets itself within a few minutes. If it does not
restart, call for service.
Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
It is normal for certain cycles to repeatedly pause for several
seconds during the main wash.

If the dishwasher will not fill

Check the overfill protection float that is able to move up and down
freely? Press down to release.

Let me know if any of these procedures helped you?
