Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher
The "Clean" & "Heated Dry" lights are flashing on my parents' Maytag MDB7100AWB dishwasher. Heated Dry is in position 7 on the keypad. I am trying to help them troubleshoot what this means from across the country. My parents are elderly and I do not want to ask them to try and take off the kick plate to get to the Tech Sheet, and have not been able to find either the Tech Sheet or a code glossary online. Any assistance with info on this light sequence would be greatly appreciated.

I had this same problem. I read on another blog that the manual recommends that you turn the power off to dishwasher. When you turn the washer back on, the lights still flash but then push the off button. The lights stopped flashing.

These blinking lights indicates an issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump. Please reset the power to the dishwasher and after, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error. If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry. Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post back for further assistance.
