Re: MDB7100AWB STOPS AFTER 3 SECONDS OF RUNNING
You may have a bad timer (under the knob) the main control unit.
If you can remove the timer by removing the plastic cover and check the
timers contacts, if they are burnt or broken then replace the timer.
If you cannot access the inside of the timer...it still may be needed
to be replaced. if the motor only runs for a few
seconds, and then shuts down the usual problem is the motor
overloading and shutting down.
This sounds serious. you may want to call Maytag and have there people check out the machine.

To set the clock, press and hold the clock/timer button for three
seconds. A clock icon will appear on the left side of the screen. Input
the time using the numerical buttons and then click the clock/timer
button to save the time.
To set the timer, press and release the clock/timer button so that the
display shows all zeroes. Enter the desired time using the keypad. Press
start/stop to start the countdown. The countdown may be paused by
pressing the stop/start button and resumed by pressing the same button
When countdown is complete, timer will beep continuously for thirty
seconds and display will flash. Timer will then beep every ten seconds
for ten minutes until the stop/start button is pressed.
This timer will also time up to time activities. To start count up,
press clear/memory so timer reads all zeroes. Press stop/start and a
plus sign will appear on the right side of the screen as the timer
begins counting up.
It sounds like you have "locked" the dishwasher. This was an added feature that most people never wanted since it only seems to be set by accident.
Try pressing the 3 second button and holding it down for at least three seconds. This should turn the light off. Drove us nuts the first time it happened. If it doesn't turn off then I guess it is broken.
