Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher

1 Answer

Fills with water, sounds like it starts to pump water then stops, then start again. It attempts to start pumping water 3 or 4 times them turns off leaving the water in the tub. I have read about the water needing to heat up for the cycle to advance. When I check the water that is left in the tub it is warm but not hot. The heating element is not hot either. I did a continuity test on the heating element and it seems to check out ok. I also did a continuity test on the red wire from the heating element to the circuit board (ok). Also check the white wire to the circuit board (ok). The thermostat tested positive on the continuity test. The circuit board does not have any visible  flaws or  soder  breaks. I'm wondering if there is a water flow issue. The pumps seems to start pumping but quickly (2 seconds or so) stops then start again. Is there a way to test is this is an issue? Would a water flow issues cause these symptoms? Is there a diagnostic test for the heating element? I already tried the continuity test with a meter? Thanks, Darin Dishwasher fills then I hear a humming and it doesnt wash, Clicks off then hums some more and clicks off. It does drain and fill.

You have a wash pump problem. can be 1 of 3 things. most likely something is caught in the pump impelor if not the wash pump motor may be faulty or ceized or it could be the capacitor for the wash pump motor is faulty. you can try removing the wash pump yourself and check the impelor if it spins freely then you will have a motor problem.
hope this helped

Start light flashing,rince light on.machine will not start cycle


Hello. I really need the make/model number to help you accurately. However, from the symptoms you're describing, it sounds like the drain pump is jammed. A lot of dishwashers turn on the drain pump first to remove any stagnant water sitting in the bottom of the pump. Then, fresh water is let into the tub, fills to the proper amount, then the main pump starts. The lights flashing are an error code--different combinations of buttons flashing mean different things. On some models, a button light will flash a certain number of times, pause, then flash another number of times. This is a binary code telling the user what is malfunctioning. That's why I need the model number and any other info to help diagnose the issue. Thanks!

check for a loose electrical connection or a faulty stop solenoid on the pump or injector controls if common rail . It sound that the stop control has an intermittent continuity problem ( broken wire-dirty connection---bad earth site etc)

Have you had any luck with this? Ours just started doing this tonight after no problems (had it for 3 years, light use). "Feels like" a pump isn't kicking in to pump the water to the arm.

The pump has a thermal safety cut out on it.
If the pump gets too hot it cut out.
Just put a new pump in and your all going again.
