Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher
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
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.
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.

If clean light is blinking then it may be an
issue with heater circuit, door switch or wash pump, please reset the power to
the dishwasher. After, 5 minutes check if you are still getting the same error.
If yes, then it is a water heating fault. To resolve this error try pressing
this reset sequence-- Heat Dry - Normal - Heat Dry - Normal or High Temp - Air
Dry - High Temp - Air Dry or Hi Temp Scrub, energy saver dry, Hi Temp Scrub,
energy saver dry or High Temp Wash-Heated Dry-High Temp Wash-Heated Dry .
Now let the unit run for 2-3 minutes and then you press the Cancel/Drain button
and allow it to completely drain and reset. If this doesn't work then it's an
issue with the wash pump not pumping the water past the heater efficiently or
due to lack of water to heat. Please make sure that heater is not open
circuited and is heating the water efficiently. You'll have to check the heater
using a multimeter; the meter should read between 3000 to 3300 ohms (Use
multimeter on Rx1 ohm setting). If heater is fine then make sure water pressure
is optimum and fill valve is working fine. Hope this helps... Please post
back if you need more information.
