More than likely it is your food disposal. Remove your drain line from the disposal and clean and inspect it, then clean out where it connects in the disposal. This should allow it to drain, if not remove the drain from the bottom of the dishwasher and clean it out there. This should fix your problem.

We have a MDB6000AWW model d/w. It is leaking


Yes what happens is it gets past the rubber seal somewhere higher during the cycle and gravity pulls the water down to where you see it leaking. 11 years is a good lifespan of a door seal. Plus they are easy to pull out and replace. Just yank it out and push the new one in. Hope this helps.

Dishwasher doesn't drain


The drain motor might be worn so it still pumps out fairly well but will let wtare back in once it stops pumping. It may also have something stuck in it so it ot is worth removing and cleaning through with a good degreasing cleaner.

Maytag dishwasher that won't drain when finished


HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

MAYTAG DISHWASHER MODEL MDB7100AWQ


My MDB7100AWQ has suddenly stopped working. It will fill but then stops and will not move into wash. When I press the drain/off button the lights work but it does not drain. I do hear a switch in the door operate when I press the drain/off.
