MDB7100AWB STOPS AFTER 3 SECONDS OF RUNNING

WHEN I PRESS ANY OF THE WASH BUTTONS ON THE UNIT, THE TIMER SHOWS TIME LEFT, BUT NOTHING ELSE HAPPENS. EVERY FEW MINUTES IT SOUNDS LIKE THE UNIT IS RUNNING FOR ABOUT 3 SECONDS, THEN STOPS AGAIN. THE TIMER DOES COUNT DOWN. Press any wash button, lights illuminate and nothing happens. No timer

    Wife closed door and all lights began to flash.



    I have a TABLE prepared showing what happens but this poorly designed system will no accept it. Can send via email.



    Since then, the following table indicates action but nothing happens:

    Notes:

    Bottom of washer is filled with water. Attempted to depress “Drain” and nothing happened.

    Wash = wash lamp is on Light = Light lamp is on San = Sanitary lamp is on

    Dry = Dry lamp is on blank = lamp is off

Hi,

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.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate me as fixya..

1. The Maytag sevice centers, if close, are "great". You describe the problem and they supply the part. If far still give them a call.

2. The problem is probably the control. It's a simple fix. Just replace the part. And you can order the part from the service center. Takes 10 minutes.

Round soft key OXO Timer I need to change the clock time their model # is 1061978


Operating functions:
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 again.
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.

My dishwasher will not start. The 3 second button light is on and when I press it nothing happens . I try pressing any other button and nothing works


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.
