Question about Maytag 24 in. MDBH965AW Built-in Dishwasher

2 Answers

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds. Then last week, the diswasher would shut off in mid cycle and all lights would turn off with water still in the dishwasher. Today, I noticed that I am able to open the dishwasher door while the dishwasher is running and it will continue to run like the door was never opened. Now it is starting to trip the breaker on the outlet. What could be causing the problem and I would I fix it?

    Thank you for your advice Masteria but I do not have problems with the door falling down. The problem I have is with the dishwasher shutting off by itself and now power surging. Here is a summary of the problems in order of what I have experienced over the past couple of weeks:
    1. Clean and Sanitized light stays on after door has been opened for more than 30 secs.
    2. Able to open the door and the dishwasher continues to run.
    3. Causing a power surge that trips the breaker in the outlet.

2 items in need of testing are the door switch - and the main controller board/timer unit.

CLICK HERE for all the blowout diagrams of your dishwasher.

the entire handle assembly (--with switches--) is HERE
the switches alone are HERE
the Control Board is HERE

Test/replace the door switches first - as they are the cheapest, and most likely to fail. They must be removed and checked for continuity - individually.

All you can do with the control panel is verify power to and from the switch with a Digital Multimeter.
If there is no power TO the switch - the board is faulty.

It is my opinion since there is more than one problem - in your case the control board is the culprit.

Thanks!!

The dishwasher doors falls down: You may have had a door spring break. There several different door springs, but most, if not all dishwashers have 2 door springs. You will need to remove the lower access panels to get at the springs. They are fairly easy to get at and replace :-) This is a collection of some common springs used today, link is here.

Clean sanitized washing lights flashing


Hello Brian, thank you for your post!

I understand Clean, Sanitized and Washing feature lights are flashing. Let's try resetting your dishwasher. This can be done by either unplugging or flipping the household circuit breaker to the off position. It is important to wait approximately ten minutes and then turn your dishwasher on. Confirm that the door is securely closed and select a cycle. If resetting the power does not correct the issue, it could potentially mean a number of things: a potential wiring failure, door latch assembly, or control board. At this point, I would personally contact a professional to accurately diagnose your dishwasher to determine the root cause to reduce the risk of unnecessary parts.

Best of luck, Chris!

Unknown control panel symbols bosch dishwasher super silent


Wash Cycle Options

Delay Start (model dependent):



This option allows you to delay the start time of your dishwasher up

to 19 hours.

Sanitize:



The Sanitize feature is available only in the Heavy, Auto, Normal and Half Load cycles. Press the

"Sanitize Option" button to activate the Sanitation features during these cycles. The technical sanitation

measures may also improve the drying results. The sanitize LED or The "Water Pipe" symbol will light when sanitation

requirements are met.

Note: The dishwasher automatically defaults to Auto Wash when turned off and back on. If you used the sanitize option
in your last cycle, the dishwasher will default to Auto Wash with the Sanitize option selected when you turn it on.

To achieve proper drying, always use a liquid rinse aid, even if your detergent contains a rinse aid or

drying additive.



Note: The dishwasher indicates low rinse aid by turning on the Refill Rinse Aid indicator LED (for units without

a display) or The "Spray Looking" symbol (for units with a display).

If this light is on, you need to refill the rinse aid dispenser

I got the idea that the "squiggly arrow" has something to do with the sanitize feature also. If you post your model number "on the inside right hand side of your dishwasher door" I'll go get your manual and post the link here. Hope this helps so far! :)

Why are lights flashing on my dishwasher's control panel?


There is a button configuration that you can press to make the unit reset on some you would close the door and push normal wash heated dry then normal wash then heated dry on others it would the econo wash button then heated dry then the econo/ heated dry this pattern starts the unit and then puts it into the drain cycle and resets the control which allows you to start washing again. If you can name off all the buttons you have I can tell you exactly which ones to perform this reset in the unit. I await your reply
Rick
p.s this also happens on whirlpool models as well right after the warranty runs out so you end up paying the high service charge for a tech to walk in you door push a few buttons then collect a fee over 169.00 which is ridiculous.

Try putting the unit into a test mode. This my clear your issues otherwise call for service.

One of two ways to do this.
In standby (no lights) Press the combination of buttons:
hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash > sanitize > hi temp wash
All lights will come on and the washer will run a test cycle anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes.
If that button comb doesn't work use:
heated dry > sanitize > heated dry > sanitize > heated dry

Unfortunately the only way to fix that problem is to replace the console which includes the button pad. I can look up the part number and approx cost of the part if you confirm your model number from the tag just inside the door and the color of the dishwasher.

Maytag Jet Clean leaking through right side of door during rinse


It is important to examine the leak to see where it probably originates.

If the water is leaking from the right hand side of the door on your dishwasher, it is time to replace the gasket that seals the door when the door is latched.

Kenmore Dishwasher Not Sanitizing


You don't need an additive.
The sanitized LED itself is probably out.
It will not light up if the sensor doesn't sense that the water has reached 155 F. If the dishes are getting clean, I assume the heater is working properly. You could have a failed sensor, but you would usually notice longer than normal wash times and the dishwasher getting hotter than usual.
Alternately press heat dry and hi temp scrub 4 times. This puts washer into diagnostic mode. The first thing that happens is all the LED's light up. If it lights up then it is ok and the problem is somewhere else.
If these instructions don't apply to your machine, please post the complete model number from the decal just inside the front of the tub and I will look it up for you.
