I think. However, rarely have I encountered an inlet valve that
emitted a burning smell. So I'd expect there to be some other problem
in there. But, if the inlet valve didn't pass the test, then it
needs to be replaced. Plus, if it was stuck on the rinse cycle and the
valve was out, then that is where the cycle would hang up. Burning
smells usually come from a motor, a belt, shorted wiring or a heating
element. So if everything else checks out, then go for replacing the
valve. The instructions are included in our dishwasher repair section.
How long does it stay in the wash cycle? Indefinitely? Does the display continuously show "WASH"?. If it stays in the wash cycle indefinitely (i.e. continuously shows "WASH" for significantly beyond approx. 3 minutes), it's probably a control board malfunction. If it continues to wash after the "WASH" indicator goes out, it could be a shorted wash motor relay on the relay board or a fauly control board.
If the internal rinse water booster heater doesn't reach it's programmed setpoint temperature in time, the dishwasher will run an extended wash cycle to give the booster heater more time to finish heating the rinse water. If this is what's happening, the wash cycle would last approximately 3 minutes, then it would rinse regardless of whether the booster heater has finished heating or not.
The booster temperature thermistor may be bad, giving a false booster temperature reading, causing an extended wash cycle as described above. The booster heater elements or contactor may be bad, preventing the booster heater from heating and reaching proper temperature, also causing the same extended wash cycle to give the booster more time to heat.
This sounds like something is stuck in the drain pump. You can remove the inner cover to look for obstructions. You have a dual purpose motor it does the both circulating and draining. The blockage is causing it to overheat and trip the thermal protector. You can remove the drain assembly from underneath if you don't find anything from above. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that walks you thru most of this. It is a different model but pretty close.If you find no obstructions the motor may be failing.
If you open the door after the cycle, does it clear the display? Mine is a different maytag model, and when it's done it shows the display as clean. The display will go blank when I open the door manually... let me know if that helps. KEN
Do you set your cycles by a manual timer or do you have a digital display?If a timer then it most likley bad or its stuck---if thats the case try wd40 behind it and see if it loosens,If your unit is digital then the control board is most likley bad,let me know.
I had this problem for a long time too, then I read the maual once I found it...and it says that if you have a water softeer, you need to use very little detergent, or the machine will continue to run, because there is still soap on the dishes. Also, I have the dishwasher with the stainless steel interior and it says that yo need to use powder detergent, not liquid and lastly you have to use a rinse agent. Once I corrected all three of the things I was dong wrong, my machine worked perfectly. I was about to get rid of the machine, but I am glad I finally sat down with the manual.
I have experienced this problem before and it turned out to be the main control board in the console. Not a cheap fix, either. The control boards are not serviceable, and can run over $100. Sorry, I hope I was of some help.
