Question about Maytag MDB9100A Dishwasher

1 Answer

Dishwasher will not complete a cycle

I have a maytag dishwasher model MDB9100AWB and I am experiencing a strange problem. Dishwasher worked perfectly fine until my wife noticed a very slow water leak coming from underneath the machine. I removed the front access cover an noticed a slow leak coming from the bottom of the dishwasher tub. I had a repairman replace the bottom seal. (I usually perfrom my own repairs, however, I read that changing the seal is better left to a "certified repair techician), I DO NOT trust repair shop, because, most seem dishonest. Anyway, after the seal was replaced, the repairman stated that I need a new motor (this diswasher has <2 years of use). The symtoms are the dishwasher will not complete a cycle. When I start a normal cycle, it does fill with water, but does not start the wash cycle (it beeps every 30 seconds). After 3-4 minutes it the normal cycle and clean LED flashs. The drain cycle does work if I press the drain/off button! The fact that the unit does drain, does this mean the pump AND the motor is ok? I am not conviced that the repairman did not do something to my dishwasher during the replacement of the seal, because the unit did work perfectly even when there was a small leak. How can I verify the operation of the motor or pump? Could something be wedged in the perpeller?

Does maytag dishwasher model MD9100AWB have a interchangeable color front?

you model number is missing a letter I'm guessing its a MDB9100awb. They don't make them like they use to, where you can just flip them around nor you have to order a whole new front.
For White Order 99001416 For Bsq Order 99002109
For Stainless Steel Order 99002169 For Blk 99001417

they look to be around 75 buck

Bosch dishwasher model 6800 has timer irregularities

Don't have an answer, but am experiencing the same problem.
I had to rebuild the control unit of our Bosch Excell Dishwasher. Replaced a blown relay on the CPU.
Dishwasher seems to now work fine - i.e. fixed the lack of heating problem, but it still tells me the cycle will take 74 mins instead of the usual 32mins. The cycle then actally takes more like 35mins to complete.
Any help much appreciated.

I have a Maytag MDB9100AWB. During wash and rinse it leaks on the right side (as I am facing it). Cannot figure out where it is coming from. The seal on the tub seems(?) okay. Did not find a seal...

The symptoms you describe, STILL sounds like it could be caused by a worn door seal. Over time, these seals compress to the point where they no longer seal correctly, or food particles and grime get caught between the door and seal and leave small air gaps. I personally own a Maytag such as yours and experienced the same problem. It turned out to be a tub seal that was too compressed to seal properly.

The following link explains some of the common causes of dishwasher leaks and what you can do to prevent them:

If the model number is correct, the part number for a replacement gasket is 902894.

Replacement part (if required) can be purchased at any of the following websites:

All these sites are reputable and have great service. Prices vary between them, so shop and compare. The first three sites I have listed include helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you in locating and properly identifying any parts you may need.

This is a very simple repair. If you have questions, or require additional assistance, please post back and let me know. hope this helps you.

NOTE: There is NO seal along the bottom on this model dishwasher. That is why proper loading is also important. Water can be diverted over the front edge of the tub basin and cause drips and leaks if loaded improperly.

Bosch dishwasher fills with water after cycle is completed

Sounds like you need a new water inlet valve. It's not shutting off completely, so water slowly enters the machine even while it isn't running.
