If there is a drain problem, the parts that must be checked are drain hose, pressure switch, drain pump assembly, timer control.

Check if the drain hose at the back is kinked or blocked.

Test the pressure switch, blow into the small hose, and use a multimeter to check if switch has continuity.

Remove access panel and get to the drain pump hose to check for a blockage. You will need to disconnect the hose and collect the water.

Keep a container ready to collect water when you undo pump hose.

If all the rest is OK, test and eventually replace timer board.

The wash pump and drain pump are different. So it is likely the wash pump is choked and trips or the motor is faulty.

It is likely the flap valve (item 5) or the chopper (item 6) are damaged and could be replaced before you get to the wash motor.

Maytag, model MDB7100AWB, acts spuratic!? 4 days ago it hummed most fo the evening, I just thought it was the fridge. There was water sitting in the bottom when I opened the door - and the humming...


probably the drain pump, access is underneath and to the right of pump housing, the drain hose connects to main housing and the drain motor is right and just behind where hose connects. open door part way for easier access. and use shop vac to remove as much water as possible, then have 2 or 3 bath towels to clean up if you try on your own. local parts house will have drain pump if you take model # with you

Mdb7100awb won't drain. Water remains in the bottom of wash compartment


Hello,

This dishwasher has a auxiliary drain motor on the right hand side. This motor often will get clogged with debris. Pull the unit out and check the drain motor for debris. The pump has three small screws that hold it in place.

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWB that won't drain water after completed cycle


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.


First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.


Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Dishwasher leaks, is there a recall on this model,mdb7100awb


if the dishwasher is leaking water there is no recall on that. the recall i believe you are talking about would be for the rinse aide leaking in the door. you should contact maytag to see about getting the new kit installed on your dishwasher and you may get your leak fixed for free since the kit comes with the door seal.
You can contact maytag at (800) 675-0535 do not wait and do not use the dishwasher. you will need the model number and serial number off your machine when you call. it is located near the door seal on the tub.
