Maytag performa dishwasher, model # PDBL390AWB.


Sounds like to me you have a water restriction somewhere. Double check and make sure that the main water valve coming into your home is fully open. Make sure the water shut off valve(s) going to the dishwasher both have adequate water flow and that means testing them before being connected to dish washer. If that checks out okay, possibly the plunger that opens and closes in the electric water solenoid is sticking and not opening up al the way since the unit has been in storage for all that time. Sometimes tapping on it when it is in operation can free up that sticking plunger and you may get full water flow restored again. If not, solenoid may have to be replaced. Hope this helps out.

Dishes not coming clean


Check water inlet valve

A dishwasher's water inlet valve is its most common part to fail. When your dishes are not being fully cleaned, quite often a faulty water inlet valve is to blame. Test your dishwasher's water inlet valve, and if it is no longer functioning as it should, you will have to replace it.

Maytag dishwasher #WU484 will not fill


The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. First Check to see if the valve is getting water. Make sure it’s not clogged. There is a screen on the inside of the valve, this sometimes gets clogged up with debris. Check to see if you get power to valve when unit is put into operation may take a couple minutes to start a fill. If you have power and it’s not clogged up replace the valve .If you have no power to the water inlet valve check float switch. This can be done by checking the continuity. There is a video of this at http://appliancehelponline.com/dishfloatwaterinletvideo.html this will walk you checking the water inlet valve and the float switch. It may be a different model but the testing procedure will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for most models. All parts come with installation instructions.

Maytag performa dishwasher PDBL390AWB - dirty dishes


The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get their new product. It filters the water and takes out the hard minerals that cause spots and clog dishwashers. It is very affordable and has a money back guarantee.

Water not going into dishwasher


Hi,

There's no water entering the machine If there's no water entering your dishwasher, check these:

Water Inlet Valve
Float switch
Water-inlet valve The water-inlet valve lets water enter the machine. If this valve is defective, you need to completely replace it. It's usually located behind the lower access panel on the left or right side. It's the device with the main water line (usually copper) from the house, a rubber tube to the dishwasher, and two wires attached to it.

Float switch The float switch is a small electrical switch that's located right below the dishwasher "floor." Above the switch, on the inside of the dishwasher, is a plastic cylinder that floats up as water fills the dishwasher. If this switch is defective, or if the plastic float gets caught or trapped in the raised position, the water can't enter the dishwasher. If the float switch is defective, you need to replace it.
Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using "Fixya".

No water filling into dishwasher


Hi not to be rude, but have you checked the water inlet valve (might not be turned on) also you might check the water line going to the dishwasher it`s self it might be crimped, or you could check the water inlet on the dishwasher , I think that the fill valve might be stuck also. Hope this was helpful.

I have a Maytag dishwasher model DWU8860 and it doesn't always fill after a pumpout cycle


It is probably a faulty inlet valve. Check the float switch first.

See here how to locate the parts.

Water Inlet Valve for Maytag MDB3100


You can save considerable money if you change the valve yourself. I sold Maytag dishwashers for over 25 yrs. and there are still a lot of those out there. Very simple to work on and last a long time with minimal maintenance.

Maytag MDB6650AWW will not fill


My Maytag MDB6650AWW dishwasher would not fill. The lights on the panel were on when I tried the wash cycle. I tested the water valve but no voltage was found during the cycle. I thought it may be the timer/control circuit. I traced the power from the door switch and found no power going to the float switch leg. I found two wires completely cut through (one going to the Water Valve) and three others partially sliced.
