    Of course there are no coins in the machine and no water since, as stated, the unit has never operated.

Hello,

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Please unplug the machine. Tip the machine back. Take the plastic cover loose from the bottom front of the machine. There are 4 screws on the right front side of the machine that form a square. Remove those and take the spring clamps off the pump hoses and wire connector. Whatever water that is in the machine will come out, have a bucket or shop vac ready. The coins or other foreign objects that are in the pump can now be removed.

A few points, however.
1) You don't need to tip the washer entirely on its side, but you need to tip it enough that you can access the bottom of the washer.
2) It's not trivial to get the plastic cover off the bottom of the unit. However, if you fiddle with it enough, you'll eventually get it off.
3) My MAH2400 had five screws on the bottom, not four. That's a pretty obvious issue to deal with.
4) If the coins have been in the pump for a long enough time, it may have chewed up the pump blade. If you're able to get the coins out, then you can also replace the pump. The following link provides a source for a replacement part:

5) The post that includes the previous link also provides a schematic if you want to see what you're doing:

Here's a link for the steps with pictures:

Hope this helps
God Bless

Maytag Dishwasher MDBH965AW No Power


Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replace

If the junction box checks out ok, the wall outlet socket is live, replace the main control or timer module.
