Question about Maytag 24 in. PDB1420 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have an older Maytag model #WU482. For some reason it will not drain and will only run using the economy mode. I can hear the timer ticking at all other cycles and it does click between cycles. I recently replaced the drain float and the machine had been working fine after. The motor is working and the belt is good. I think the kids were playing with the timer knob. Could this cause a problem with the timer motor? Or does this sound more like a pump out issue, impeller? I'm thinking its the timer motor since only one mode is working, dry cycle also works.

First,inspect the drain float. Make sure it rides on the micro switch correctly or it will not take on water.Check the float micro switch for continuity. Check for power at the water valve when it calls for water. Remove the wire harness from the timer and re-install it. Make sure you get a good tight fit,they can become loose over years of use. If that does not correct the problem I would suspect a bad timer.

Sounds like the timer motor may be dead. Can you hear it ticking when it is on or can you see the gear on the timer motor shaft turning when it is running? If not then the timer should be replaced.
