Dishwasher runs for appx 14 min & stops washing half way thru wash cycle. Timer contunies to run. No drain pump out (nothing). Let dishwasher set idle for appx 1 hour and it will re-set. Set timer...

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 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.

Won't finish cycle

The water may not be getting hot enough in the rinse cycle. Usually it needs to heat to 140 to 160 degrees for rinsing. If the heating element is not working the water will not heat. If your DW has a Sanitary setting it will be calling for the water to be 160 degrees. If you have the option to override the Sanitary settin, try that to see if the rinse cycle will finish with cooler water.

Have a brand new maytag dishwasher. When the cycle is finished the clean light stays on and I have to push buttons to clear is this normal?

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.

The dishes don't get dry enough

I was able to fix this by using rinse during the cycle.

It is very common that high eficiency, low water using dishwashers take longer to finish all cycles. The best way to "hurry" the washing is to make sure that the water heater is providing hot water of at least 120 degrees. But no hotter then 140 degrees.
If the dishwasher runs even longer, check to see is the dishwasher is actually connected to the cold water line. This dishwasher can be run from cold water but the water heating phase in the cycles will add much time ti the entire cycle.

This unit has a sensor that detects the detects the water clarity towards the end of the wash cycle. Rinsing the dishes may speed the load a little, but encourage not to go crazy on the rinsing because the dishwasher actually counts on the food particles to help clean the dishes.
Also, note that the final (third) blinking light means drying. You can simply open the door anytime after the final draining and power off the dishwasher, allowing the hot dishes to air dry.
Hope this helps. Please resply with your findings. Thanks!

Bosch dishwasher


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 hope this helps you.

The correct way to start the wash cycle

we have just purchased a Fagor dishwasher also - the instruction manual is worthless.

in regards to the 2 thin tubes, we just inserted them in the gallon jugs that the soap/rinse agents comes in and it works fine. just make sure the clear tube without the label goes in the rinse agent and the labeled tube goes in the soap jug. we did drill a hole in the top cap of the jugs and pushed the line thru and that helped keeping the tubes in the jugs and minimized the mess if the jugs fell over.

in regards to the temperature problem, we found that running it thru a couple of cycles before you start the actual dishes helped get the water temperature up faster. it seems to like to start with normal tap hot water first, so the 1st couple of cycles get the cold water out of the line.

Dishwasher wont finish cycle

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.
