Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB6600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Maytag MDB6600AWW Unit is approx 3 years old it was finishing a load and stopped part way through sticking on heated dry. I don't know if it was there in the cycle or if the diagnostics on the board sent the message there. The light now will not shut off or move from the heated dry. I have disconnected 120 volts, removed the panel to check wiring, removed board and reassembled nothing resets the heated dry light and nothing works. I have gone through manual function test, sales floor demo test, field service test and nothing works. Can you help , my next step is to replace the circuit board but at $120 dollars I want to be sure because they have a no return policy Bruce from Calgary

Re: Maytag MDB6600AWW

Have you tried pushing heated wash, heated dry, heated wash then heated dry? Sometimes this will reset it.

My whirlpool dishwasher will start to run, then after about 30-40 minutes it will stop working. Normal load time is 1.5 to 2 hours. I have tried running it on all 3 cycles, heated dry, high temp and both....

Sadly this sounds like a logic board problem.
The only other possibility is that there is something on the supply side causing a problem. For example if you have a hot water supply to the dishwasher (unusual but not unheard of) you may find that it runs cold after a while and then your dishwasher has to revert to heating the water itself. At this stage you may think it has stopped but it is simply heating up.
If, in addition, the internal heater wasn't working for any reason, the machine would simply stop.
Have a look at the manual (you can access them here and check to see if you are getting any fault codes/lights from the machine.
Hope this helps you

Maytag Model # MD87609AWB3 after rinse cycle it stops. I have to push button to finish drying cycle

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Clean button will not go off

Alternate solution: Within 6 seconds, alternately press "heated dry" then "normal" buttons. Wait for all lights to come on and for the diswasher to finish washing the load.

Maytag Quiet Series dishwasher won't start

Sounds like you have a bad Control Board

But with the price it cost, you might be better off buying a new dishwasher, preferably a different brand, cause that washer has some bad reviews

Blinking lights, unresponsive

I went to the Maytag site looking for a manual. None existed for my model, but I looked up won't start under the FAQs. The advice said to push the cancel button twice. My model doesn't have one, so I just started at the left side of the control panel and pushed each button twice. pushing the dry button twice made the lights stop blinking. i pushed the wash button and the unit started.
