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.

Mayteg diswasher model number MDB7100AWB


Hey, If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

Power from the house
Door switch
Wiring
Timer or selector switch
Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

Hi


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.

It won't run, power is on, and all the console pushbutton lights are blinking


When this happened to me I just pressed the "drain/stop" button (forgot the exact wording) and the blinking stopped and I was able to operate it ok. This has happened twice since the washer was serviced in 2007 for a factory recall situation. The door has been harder to close since then. The washer also will usually stop midway through a wash cycle. I will then just push the door firmly at which point it usually starts back up and finishes normally. If anyone knows the reason for any of this I'd love to hear it.

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.

SHU 53 MODELS To start test program, press and hold both SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. Initially, control module version # will be displayed (e.g./ ?21? = version 1 with jumper). When wash program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button. To check each program indicator light, press its button. To check Cycle Countdown display, Refill Rinse Agent light and REGULAR WASH light, press REGULAR WASH button (press Delay Start button to test Cycle Countdown display alone). Cycle Countdown display will show ?88″ when REGULAR WASH button is pressed and ?8h? when Delay Start button is pressed. To start testing, press both the SCRUB WASH and DELICATE/ECONO buttons a second time. When testing has ended, Cycle Countdown display will show a fault using codes below. If more than one fault occurs, code numbers will be added together, (e.g./ ?6? = faults 2 + 4). 0 = No faults detected 2 = Heating fault 8 = NTC (temperature sensor) fault 1 = Aqua Sensor (?Sensotronic?) fault 4 = Filling fault F = Filling fault (display occurs during wash, not test) To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil, measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty. If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), display will show fault code ?4″ and unit will continually fill and drain where testing won?t be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), display will show ?0″, water won?t heat (to 150?F) and water won?t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), display will show fault code ?8″ immediately and testing will end shortly after water has started circulating.

Hi my hoover 6612 dishwasher does its pre-wash but then when the light for wash comes on it does nothing. I wondered if it might be a capacitor which needed replacing but I can't find one - any ideas??


Check the float switch inside the tub, it should move freely up and down.

Check the harness to the motor

Check start capacitor on the left side of the wash motor
