Question about Maytag MDBH945AWW / MDBH945AWQ / MDBH945AWB Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My Maytag mdb 7 dishwasher stopped working on the same day that a Plumber came to our house to fix our toilet. He says he didn't turn off the water anywhere in the house, other than the valve beside the toilet. Yet our dishwasher all of a sudden stopped working. Can the 2 problems be connected? Or is it a coincidence or am i stuck replacing my dishwasher?

If he indeed only accessed the toiled shut off valve, then that would not affect the dishwasher.

Even if dirt/sediment got into the line to the washer somehow, it should be able to be cleared at the inlet valve to the washer.

As to you needing to replace the washer, one would need to determine what the problem is first. It could be a very simple and cheap repair.

If he indeed only shut off the toilet valve, then yes, it would be a coincidence that the washer went out the same day.

If you are on city water, then it is possible that if there is construction nearby or anything that would introduce sediment into the line upline from you, that it could have contaminated the washer.

If your toilet was having problems with water flow as well (thus your reason for calling a plumber) then I would strongly suspect that this is the case.

It is possible that both issues were caused by sediment/dirt from your city water source.

''no water''


I too had the same problem as you with my pipes freezing, but my heat was the culprit. Basicly the problem was the same. I turned the water on in the sink and when the water thawed there the pump started and oh my god I had broken water pipes in the house under the counter, so I turned the main water valve off, or the pump from the breaker box for the well. The difference is that if you turn the well pump off then the water runs until the pressure goes down. If you turn the main water off it will stop sooner. I fixed the pipes under the sink and behind the dishwasher started to leak, Fixed that and again turned on the water again at the main valve. Ask where your main water lever is. My water started to run in the sink area, but the drains were frozen, I put a heater under the house and heated up the pvc pipe that was still frozen. Of course the toilet..... When it got alittle warmer and the heat on the pipe, things broke loose. The plumber was no where to be found because they were so busy, this worked for me and people had great ideas for me to try. When the water and the pump were turned back on all leaks were fixed and things are back to normal. I am now wiser...I hope this story helps somewhat.

Dishwasher will not spray water from arms


Check for utensils or pot handles that may be hanging below the bottom rack and interfering with motion of spray head.
Clean holes with toothpick.
Check temperature at hot water faucet with meat thermometer. If below 120°F (49°C), turn up thermostat on hot water heater.
