Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

Our maytag dishwasher has been a perpetual problem. The door hs been falling apart for along time. We babied it and tried to get it to last as long as possible. We bought an extended warranty last fall. It was not cheap. Recently we contacted a service center concerning the problem because we had not been able to use the washer. Maytag refused to repair or honor the extended warranty. They blamed our abuse on the problem. They have no proof. We have tried to keep good care of it. It just fell apart. It is junk. Unless maytag honors their own warranties, of which I am finding out that they have a reputation for not honoring them. I will never darken the doors of the maytag appliance world. Your good name no longer means anything. Steve Ward 423-263-7026... Etowah, TN 37331

I recently had the same problem. One of the cords that attaches the door to a spring had snapped. I purchased cord replacments at the following URL and completed the repair myself. http://www.repairclinic.com/SmartSearch/SSPartDetail.aspx?PartID=1059756&PPStack=1

SOURCE: Maytag portable dishwasher, dish racks are very rusted in 2 years

This is Maytags solution


Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?
If minor rack repairs are needed, a dishwasher rack repair kit just might work. To review this product or purchase the kit, click here.
Should you purchase the kit online, enter Promo Code F9A75Q4 in the Review Order screen when you check out to receive a 10% discount on your order.
For more severe rack damage, a replacement rack may need to be purchased; call the Maytag Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-616-2601, Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Eastern Time.

I would call the toll free number and see if a free replacement is available. If not at least try to get a big discount on replacing them.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to rate this solution (from Fix Ya, not Maytag, I didn't like their solution).

SOURCE: Where can I buy the cable repair kit for my Kitchenaid dishwasher

OK, pretty easy fix. Look at diagram 10 here: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5164885

The link (#24) probably broke and the spring (#18) probably shot off and is lying somewhere behind the dishwasher. Just pull out the dishwasher (careful not to disconnect or crimp any of the hoses) and check to see if both springs (one on each side) can be located. Just replace the old links and re-hook the springs and all should be well.

You can order the link replacement (part #8194001) from kitchenaid at 1-800-422-1230.

Just brought home maytag dishwasher and the door (sealed in plastic) and tub are wet. Why?


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

Either 3 things, the factory does a test and somebody did not dry out the unit. it would have a mold smell, or somewhere along the line, condensation got to the unit.....

or last but not least, if you bought the unit from a store. it might have been a return, so where was the unit shipped from the factory or store....

I tried to help you. Please help me and Rate/Vote on my response. We take the time to answer your question. take the time to rate us.Thanks and good luck

Cannot open the dishwasher door. Maytag Quiet Ser...


This model has a problem where the handle must be depressed fully upwards to allow the latch to clear completely without straining the mechanism. The lip on which you pull open the door gives the operator a better handhold to force it open even when the mechanism is not fully depressed. Do this enough times, and the plastic tabs on the handle begin to fatigue and eventually break. The handle becomes lodged but can be forced down to eventually open the washer. By this time, a specific portion of the latch that depresses a micro-switch will most likely be broken, and the washer won't turn off if the door becomes ajar. Remove the torque screws along the inside perimeter of the door and you can spread the face panel open to access the latch unit for replacement.

Brada dishwasher ef2401 wont start wash cycle


If it's under warranty, get someone to look at it. Probably a bad switch or sensor in the unit, could be something simple, and they're not hard to open up, but the soap dispenser mechanism has to be reassembled (it often falls apart upon taking the door apart). Last resort is the appliance serviceman. New house? New dishwasher? Warranty? That's your best option.

Detergent dispenser will not stay shut so the soap power falls out before washing starts. Last time use I opened the door by mistake part way through the cycle. Could this have messed up the latch...


Opening the door did not affect the latch on the dispenser. The catch does wear out and can be replaced. This involves disassembling the door and a small jigsaw puzzle of springs and levers. If you are attempting I would advise taking pictures to refer to before taking apart.

On off switch won't stay depressed on AEG dishwasher


Took unit apart and when I put it back it worked again. For how long who knows.

Access to the switch is difficult but by removing the printed circuit board, it seemed to allow the switch to work.

Maytag dishwasher MDB8600AWS


I have the same problem. I took the bottom sprayer assembly apart and found there is what Maytag calls a "seal kit" that has stripped threads. the part is plastic with a metal washer on the bottom and sits on top of the motor. To get to it, you have to remove the sprayer, shroud, pump housing and impeller. It is the part the impeller screws into, and may come out attached to the impeller.
I am have the part number as 99003341 and will be calling around for one later today. I will repost if this works.
