The dishwasher will now come on when push the light load button and start to wash but will only run for about 5 to 6 min befor the wash cycle stops the timer will continue to count down but nothing happens. After it stops I have to push the drain button to get the water pumped out. Can you tell me what I have to do to fix it? Thank you MrTLC

    Thank you for your answer. Where would I check the amperage and votage of the motor.



    I can push the off button and then the drain button at any time and the timer will set to 2 min and the drain cyle will go ahead and drain the water out.

Hi,

The motor on your model has a built-in thermal overload and will drop out if excessive amperage or motor temperature causes the overload to open. It takes a while for this to reset.

Does your dishwasher runs after leaving it for sometime..

Check the amperage and voltage of the motor, this must be issue with the motor..

Id it getting stopped exactly at the drain cycle or its getting stopped randomly..

Please leave my query as comment, and we may solve your issue

    To check the amperage of the motor:



    First tof check and see what amperage the dishwasher is pulling, you need a good multimeter connected to the input of the motor to check this,

Our Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus will not turn on (MDB9150AWS) and we cannot find a repair manual to troubleshoot through the problem. Maytag does not offer repair manuals on this model. Any...


Try this. From what I have found Maytag discontinued the Repair manual but it appears that all MDB and MDC models fell under this one repair manual.

Three-year old Maytag dishwasher is making terrible buzzing sound while still squirting water. Wondering if disposal on unit is jammed, and if so, how to unjam it.


Got the washer fixed by removing parts until I got down to the chopper, which was jammed by a small, plastic ice cream spoon. Was relatively easy to fix. Keeping the screws with the parts they secured was helpful.

Maytag dishwasher mdb9600awb - loud pump


This has happened a few times to me as well.(VERY VERY LOUD NOISE AT THE BOTTOM)I have the same model It did stop.I did a little reading and came to the conclusion that it was the built in food disposer chopping blades were chopping up something like a cherry pit or peach pit and once an end of a wooden spoon that dropped down.If you look at your USE and care Guide on page 12 under trouble shooting "Dishwasher seems noisy"..I went through the same thing taking things apart.Its got to be it. Mine is 2 1/2 years as well. Hope this helps. ronkeachie@rogers.com
