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.

My Maytag Performa Dishwasher is leaking when doing the dishes...


Sounds like your fill valve is stuck in the filling position...see if you you have water standing in it a couple hrs after a drain cycle. if it does then the valve needs to be replaced or you can take it apart carefully,(there is a sping that might fly out and get lost) and clean it. Mine had some small trash in it from the city water line.. The left side has an over flow hole is where your water is coming from..

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.

Maytag performa washer hot/cold cycles reverse, hooked up correct


This sounds like a cold water supply problem that's usually caused by a problem at the water inlet valve. First, remove the water supply hoses and check the small screens inside the water inlet valve. Make sure they are not clogged with rust or debris. Next, check the solenoids using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty solenoid and the water inlet valve assy will need to be replaced. I will attach a photo for reference. Hope this helps and best wishes.

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.

Maytag Performa water level


Water-inlet valve A defect in the water-inlet valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it. If this occurs, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub. In time, the water may accumulate substantially. If this happens, you need to replace the valve.

Water-level switch A defect--or an obstruction--in the water-level switch may mean that it can't tell the water to shut off. So the machine overflows. This switch senses the water level in the clothes tub. It's usually a diaphragm device with a small, clear tube attached between the switch and the bottom of the washer's outer tub. As the water level in the tub increases, the pressure on the air in the tube increases. When the pressure reaches a certain level, it activates the switch, shuts off the water, and signals the timer to begin the agitate cycle. You can either clear any obstruction in the tube or replace the water-level switch.

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.
