Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
Hi, my dishwasher, for which I had the pump replaced only recently at great cost is no longer working. This time it stopped before pumping out the water. So to clear the water I tried to run the programme again and it did drain the water but then started sounding the warning sound (the sound it normally makes when the programme finishes) and the 3 lights of the various programmes keep blinking simulaniously. I've tried turning it on several times but now it does not run any programme but just keeps making the sound every few minutes and the 3 led lights blink (all 3 at same time). I've taken it off mains power and tried switching it on and off but that does not seem to make any difference.
I've been trying to get in touch with Teka technicians to find out what it means when my machine is doing this but the service centre won't help me over the phone to shed some light on this. They will send out a technician for a rediculous £149. I just need to know if there is a fix or if I should throw my machine out (as the repairs are costing more than buying a new one). If there is anybody out there how has come accross this before please let me know! Thanks.

Because the timer controls many operations, a faulty timer can cause many problems. The timer is a complex component, so you shouldn't attempt a do-it-yourself repair. Test the timer with a VOM set to the RX1 scale. To gain access to the timer, remove the front control panel. The timer is directly behind the main timer control knob. Disconnect one of the timer's terminal wires and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. If the meter reads zero, the timer is working. If the meter reads higher than zero, the timer is faulty and should be replaced.
If possible, use the same procedure to test the selector and cycle switches. The wiring hookup, however, may be too complicated to figure out on either of these switches. If you aren't sure you can deal with these switches, call a professional service person. Replace a faulty timer -- or a faulty control switch -- with a new one made for the dishwasher.
The timer is connected to several wires that supply power to operate the various functions of the dishwasher. To replace the timer, have a helper hold the new timer next to the old one. Connect the wires of the new timer one by one, removing the old wire and connecting the new, to make sure you connect the wires correctly. The wires may be friction-fit on the terminals. If they are, use long-nosed pliers to remove the wires. Don't pull up on the wires, or you may break the connection between the wires and the clips.
After connecting the wires, set the new timer in position, secure it the way the old one was secured, and replace the control panel and knobs.

I am slightly unclear if lights 4 & 5 are counted left to right or right to left when facing the dishwasher.
If you are counting right to left - then lights 4 & 5 flashing implies E3 fault - heater failing to heat.
am suspecting the heater unit is failing. Try to run dishwasher on a colder program like DELICATE and see if goes through.
If the flashing does not go away by turning power off and back on then the heater or the thermostat has failed and will need replacement.
Hope this helps fix the problem. Please post a comment if this is not helpful.
