Question about Dishwashers
After being turned on my dishwasher fills with water then makes a clicking sound about every 4 seconds then nothing else happens
I had the exact same problem. When the service tech came to look, my husband watched him. There was a disconnected wire to the motherboard which my husband asked can't the tech just reconnect it. The tech stated no, we needed a new motherboard. My husband reconnected the wire using tape for now & the dishwasher is working perfect. My husband is going to get somekind of calk/glue that will work permanently. This should save us from replacing the motherboard for a while. The dishwasher is only about 5 years old! My previous dishwasher was over 20 years old with no repair problems the over 10 years that I owned & used it.
I am looking for the self check test, does anyone know where I can find the instructions how to do it myself? Thank you

I have the Maytag JetClean Dishwasher EQ Plus. I had the same problem. When I turned it on, it would click every 5 seconds rather than run. I took the cover off, checked all the wire connections, and looked at the motherboard. One of the little blue boxes on the motherboard had popped out. I pushed it back in and now it runs great.

If it is a wire disconnected to the motherboard all you need to do is solder it back on. You need a solder GUN, not a solder stick. Use solder with resin already in it.
Only do this if you are good with a soldering gun, as if you get too much solder on you will destroy your motherboard.

You need a new mother board, mine did the VERY same thing and now works fine
