Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher

1 Answer

Our MDB7100AWQ flashes the light that the troubleshooting sheet says means: "Turbidity sensor fails to find clean water" I cleaned a lot of gunk out of the screens but the code didn't change. Do turbidity sensors get clogged up?

Yes, depending on how it is mounted, ther could be gunk in the stub of pipe or a film caused by hard water on the sensor, pull the sensor and clean.

Okay Mickey, I've got your answer. The HEAVY and QUICK buttons flashing on that model means "Over-level water error". It means that you have either a bad Sensor Level Assembly and/or a bad Case-Brake Assembly. Both these parts are located along the left-hand side of your dishwasher. They are the semi-translucent plastic parts. Probably you can see some discoloration or gunk inside them. I have never tried to clean them; I just replace them; they are not too expensive. Go to or to get the new parts. Good luck!

How do i fix an e2 error on an electrolux dishwasher?

Hey friend, thank you for your inquiry!

The "E2" error code means that thermistor/turbidity sensor has failed. This can be corrected by replacing the turbidity sensor or main control board. I would suggest contacting a professional to come and properly diagnose your appliance to avoid any unnecessary part purchases. -Matt

Kenmore he2t F25 error. Trying to ohm test the MCU. Are you supposed to stick the leads of the multimeter into the holes of the white connector where the wires go in, or to the wires themselves? They're...


Most likely, error F 25 means that the aquasensor, the turbidity sensor of water, has failed.

Possible reasons of this error:
1) Perhaps there was a clog in the system of draining the water. Dirty water does not merge and because of this the sensor shows muddy water. It is necessary to clean the drain filter;
2) Lime or scale on the turbidity sensor. Always use high-quality washing powders or add descaling agent
3) Dirty water got into the plumbing. Drain all the water and run the wash program in hot water. The washing machine should be empty.

I have a maytag dishwasher model mdbtt60awb 07 year. Want to wash a load of dishes it keeps poping over to rinse only

In the bottom of the unit on the LH side (9 o'clock) of the pump / motor there is the turbidity sensor. This sensor is supposed to sense the soil level in the water and determine how many times the dishwasher rinses until there is no more debris in the water. If this OPTICAL (infared) sensor gets covered with food particulate or fails you can have the symptom your describing. Remove the sensor and clean off the eye bu flushing the unit as best you can. Reinstall it and then try it again.

The part number of the sensor is: 99003613 but has been replaced by PN W10120019

Here is yet another PN for the same sensor:

As long as this sensor is telling the control panel the water is dirty it will always rinse.

For an installed position of the sensor see item 11 this link:

You may have to shop areound for this sensor as it is not a commonly stocked item and has a 7 - 14 day delivery time.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a GE PDW8400JO3BB dishwasher.It use to take 53 minutes to do a normat load and now takes 83 minutes. Why

There could be a few reasons for this..

Most likely the water temperature is not reaching the optimum temperature required for cycle.
The incoming water supply pressure could be lower which means it takes longer to fill.
The turbidity sensor might not be functioning properly causing the dishwasher to prolong the wash cycle.

Best to run the dishwasher empty with a Finish dishwasher cleaning kit that you can purchase from the supermarket. The instructions are written on the kit.

this should help clean dirt from all the sensors that are located in the tub.

Hope this helps.

Dishwasher will not fill up with water

check the following- remove the wires from the fill valve.close the door and start the unit.u should read 120 v as u start the unit.if u read 120v then fill valve is bad.if not then chk and make sure the float is sitting completely down and float sw is closed.the power to fill valve goes throug this sw.if all is ok and still there is no power then u may not be getting power from cntrl board and control board could be bad.but that rarely happens.turbidity sensor does not affect the fill operation.good luck.

Clean light flashes 7 times

Here's what I could find on the your error code:

A blinking clean light that flashes 7 times and cannot be reset, occurs when the electronic control does not detect a water temperature increase during the main wash. This could be an indication of a failed heating element, in line thermostat, electronic control board and/or wiring. This problem can also occur if the main wash pump becomes clogged and it not spraying sufficiently. I hope this helps you.

PS A faulty door latch can also cause this error code.

NOTE: There should be a tech sheet located behind the lower panel under the door that lists all the fault codes and how to troubleshoot them. If you need further assistance, please let me know.
