Find your circuit breaker for your dishwasher and turn it off for 3-5 minutes. Turn it back on, then turn on your dishwasher. If this works, after the complete cycle of your dishwasher, you have to turn it off manually by pressing "on" botton then press it 1 more time to cancel; this will turn off. The defect is, probably the moisture built up in the control board causing it to ground some of the connections. Suggestion for the manufacturer, insulate the control board to prevent absorbing moisture.
A clog in the drain line or air gap (if there is one) is the usual
reason that a dishwasher won't drain. Often the problem is at the point
where the drain line attaches to the garbage disposer or household
drain line. If you remove this line, you can clear any debris from the
hose or hose connection. Be sure to reattach the hose before starting
the dishwasher again.
Many dishwashers use a drain valve with an
electric solenoid. When electricity flows to the solenoid, the valve
opens and diverts the water to the drain. Sometimes the solenoid, or
the diverting lever, sticks and prevents the dishwasher from draining
or filling properly. Try to free up the solenoid to lubricate the
lever. Otherwise, you may have to replace the solenoid or pump
assembly. With these systems, the motor always rotates in one
direction. When it's energized, the drain valve diverts the water.
dishwashers simply reverse the direction of the motor to drain the
dishwasher. These units don't have a drain valve. Instead, there's a
drain hose connected directly to the pump housing.
When you say you checked the drain hose, was top and bottom meaning did you pull out d/w. If you hadn't remove the bottom hose and check the bottom of the hose as well as outlets for the pump, clean out and run through cycle. If you had, then clean out the drain area in the tub of d/w. , should this not work, your pump is not working properly.
Hello jscott, It is typical nowdays for most dishwashers not to drain all water out of the bottom tub (Even where you cant see) due to siphon design and energy efficiency. Try using about a liter of vinegar and throw it on the bottom tub of the dishwasher. Let it run through a full cycle and see how that works. Has worked for me
Your problem is: You have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water. You have cleaned the filter inside the dishwasher where it drains and have checked the hose to the disposal and it pumps out fine. It just doen't pump itself at the end of the cycle.
It sounds like a bad control board. It's in the top of the door panel. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory to find a repairman.

The 3 symbol on the face control panel light is on and starts flashing anytime you push any other button, and is full of water in the bottom of it. My wife says she stopped the washing cycle a couple of days ago but now it wont start back up.
This is a Maytag series 200
