Do not turn on again !!!!!!!!!! Motor is jammed and will not turn. You are risking burning out the motor windings and rendering it totally unusable. Expensive part.
If unit has not been operated for a while it is possible that the bearings may have seized temporarily. Since those motors do not develop high torque at start up it will stay stalled and burn out if powered up.
Get to motor and make sure that you loosen the shaft with a good pair of vise grips and possible extension for leverage and power.
most whirlpool built dishwashers with an electronic display will have a control board. off the control will feed the wires that run the dispenser. it uses 120v to operate a wax motor. a little orangish/red colored motor. two wires conect to it. since you cant really select a dispense cycle. the way i check them is to jump a cord to a surge protected power strip. energizing the wax motor with a jumper cord. see if dispensor opens. this may require more than an average amount of knowlege of electrical saftey when doing this. i always wire it up turn off surge protector then plug in and check. once done checking turn surge protector off and unplug.
The pump is not turned on when the what is sloshed around. It is the wash motor which turns the arms around. It is likely something is stuck under the washer arms or the washer motor bearing is faulty.
If the dishwasher is only about 2 years old, I would suggest you call Maytag for warranty service. Depending on the part they will have different warranty time period. Normally 2 years should be a general policy .
Hi, It sounds like your motor is failing.You went to turn it on and it hummed... The motor got hot and triggered the safety shut off. When it cools you may be able to get it to hum again. But you will need to replace the motor. Let me know if I can help you further.
if the dryer heats the motor should be good. if it hums its either runing or the hum is a stall noise . if belt is in tact then if motor were going so would the drum . so i think the motor isn't going just humming and the heat sw in the motor is stuck closed with lint and you need to replace the motor .. take the belt off and turn motor if it turns free . the blow it out good and reinstall belt and try again ..mm
Prime the pump. If it still just hums, try to turn the impeller. If the impeller is not jammed, and the motor hums or it doesn't start at all, the motor may be bad. Check for correct voltage of the incoming power wires inside the motor connection housing. Sometimes turning the circuit breaker off, then back on will fix it.
The humming noise and the fact that there is standing water indicates that the motor is stuck and trying to break free. Is the odor that you mentioned smell like a heated coil?
This is a common problem with dishwahsers; but does not have an easy fix. If you want to try, first disconnect the power supply and open the bottom panel (below the door), Normally held by some screws. Then with a flashlight see if you can see the motor housing. You can then reach under and manually rotate the motor to break it free. Do it a few times and then reconnect the power and run the dishwasher and hopefully it will work.
