Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

Notmstarting or stopping possible cycling issue

I have a Maytag Dishwasher model MDB5100AWW
It will start to wash but will not cycle through and will not turn off unless I turn it off. I then need to drain it and it will do this but it will not stop trying to drain, thus I need to turn this function off as well.
When it is not running the motor will hum about every 20 minutes for about 15 seconds and then stop. The motor itself will get hot to the touch during this action

    Is there any way for me to test the board before I run out and try to buy a new one.
    I have noticed that on many makes and models of dishwashers there is normally some way to reset the machine by a combination of button pushing. Is there some where that I can get this information to try this first.

  • DRRAT Feb 04, 2008

    I only have the operation and installation manuals, there is no service manual that I have been able to locate on the net anywhere.

    I will go back to the dealer and see if they will sell me one or supply me with the reset info.
    I will also get a quote for a new board

Dishes not coming out clean


Hello

There are some things you can try, however, if your Maytag dishwasher is not getting your dishes as clean as you would like. Maytag recommends several processes for fixing this issue with your dishwasher.


Do not run your Maytag dishwasher while hot water is being used in other parts of your home, such as washing clothes or showering. Hot water is needed for your Maytag dishwasher to properly clean dishes.


Run water in the sink in your kitchen until it gets very hot. Then, turn on your Maytag dishwasher. This will ensure that the water cleaning your dishes is the hottest possible temperature.


Clean your Maytag dishwasher to improve the cleaning results for dishes. Run your dishwasher on a short wash cycle and wait for it to fill up with water. Stop the cycle and add about 1/3 of a cup of rust remover to the dishwasher and finish the cycle. Run your Maytag dishwasher through one normal cycle with regular detergent to finish the cleaning process.


Check your detergent. Old detergent or those that have been exposed to moisture can be clumpy. This detergent will not clean your dishes as well when loaded into your Maytag dishwasher. Purchase fresh detergent.


Use extra detergent when washing dishes that have a lot of built-up grease or food particles. The extra amount of detergent is needed to get your dishes clean. Choose a long cleaning cycle to clean these dishes.


Fill your Maytag dishwasher properly. Dishes should not be stacked on top of each other or excessively crammed into your dishwasher. This will keep the dishwasher from adequately cleaning all areas of your dishes and from rinsing them thoroughly.

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
