Maytag dishwasher The lights were flashing and now nothing works. I'm wondering if it's worth repairing or should I replace. the dishwasher was about $400.00 new and if the repair is close to 50% of that is it really worth it.

Hi,

You need to investigate the actual cause :-

Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

IF YOU FIND THAT THE REPAIR IS AROUND 50%, GO FOR THE NEW ONE.

A POSITIVE RATING IS HIGHLY APPRECIABLE.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Try to shut off the breaker to the unit or disconnect the power (black wire) at the box under the tub and must remove the bottom panel is on the right side of unit in a metal box .... for about 1 min then reconnect it and see if this reboots the cpu computer on the machine but do not mess with wiring if you know which breaker it is.. and if this doesn't do the trick then its the thermal fuse on the pcb and should be worth fixing because if you get new then the cost of new 500.00 installing is appx 150.00 225.00 unless you do yourself

Maytage dishwasher not running, clean light blinking


the maytag control panels are known to have issues. the problem is they are not sealed properly and over time steam gets in and eventually it shorts. it is fairly easy to change, but you should have it diagnosed by a qualified technician to know for sure. good luck! http://www.searspartsdirect.com/part-number/w10380486/0022/665.html

Our Electrolux dishwasher is flashing lights. Husband took off kick plate like instructed and saw that it said wash pump was bad. Question is Is it worth fixing or is that an expensive repair ?


Good morning friend, thank you for your post!

Based off the information you are providing the wash pump on your Electrolux dishwasher is bad and you are wondering the cost of the repair. I could provide you the price of a new pump as far as having this electrical component replaced I would recommend you speak with a professional about install. One must be very careful as these replacements parts can lead to potential harm if installed improperly. Additionally to look up the part information I would need to have your model number. You can locate your serial tag (which lists your model number) on the right side as you open the door of your appliance. I look forward to providing you additional assistance. -Matt

Time to call the business that sold the machine for warranty service or immediate replacement! The threat of losing a sale will usually get them off the dime in short order. Hope this gets the problem(s) resolved in a hurry. Good luck!

I have had the board replaced 5 times and the entire dishwasher replaced once. It was necessary to go to the state attorney general to get Maytag to extend the warranty. Just called the service center for the sixth time, after this the warranty will be gone and will replace with something well built.
