Re: mdb7100awb magtag dishwasher
Try reseting the breaker 1st. then check that the door is latching
correctly. other things you can check is the float inside tub in bottom
front is stuck up (looks like a little top hat-plastic)try and move it
up and down. Also check and see if there is a float inside the dishwasher. It should be
in one of the front corners of the dishwasher. The float if i
understand it correctly tells the fill valve to shut off when the water
lifts the float. Make sure there isn't anything under the float that is
keeping it open, like food or other debris.
otherwise call an appliance repair company to figure it out further.
Goodluck, Please don't forget to rate the solution.

Yes, you can switch the cycle completion signal off (or raise/lower the volume)
1. Switch the dishwasher off using the ON/OFF button
2. Open the door
3. Switch the dishwasher on again. (One of the wash cycle LEDs will flash.)
4. Hold the > button in. Continue holding it and press and release the Start/Reset button once, then release the > button.
"Clean" and one other LED should now be flashing. This indicates that the dishwasher is in the options/settings mode. If they are not flashing, start over at step 1.
5. Press > repeatedly, until the LEDs for "Clean", "Sanitized" and "Rinse Agent" are all flashing.
6. Press repeatedly until none of the LEDs are flashing.
The number of flashing LEDs indicate the volume setting . . .
nine, when you said the buttons work, do you mean they can be depressed and you feel the clicking? Well if the unit lights up with the indicator light showing power is on then check the float assy it maybe stuck in the up postion and if no power check house breaker/fuse and if ok then the thermal fuse is open somewhere depending on your series of dish washer and generally req some electrical knowledge to follow the electrical ladder diagram ..... this is the only thing I would look for before calling the repairman...
If you're sure it is heating the water, then it sounds like the wash motor/pump has failed. If you've worked on washing machines and/or dish washers before, this is potentialy a DIY job - the Haynes Dishwasher manual is very good, and parts can be found on the internet.
The reason for cheking it is actually heating the water is that the symptoms sound very similar to those of a failed heater = fill, pause, empty, stop usually accompanied wth an error code. Error code will be presented by a number of flashes of a lamp, or a number on a display panle depending whch machine you've got.
First I would recommend putting the washer in a diagnostic test mode to
see if there is a stored error code indicating where the failure is.
Once the cycle starts, it should progress on its own to the end of the
cycle without needing any assistance. All you can really do is make
sure the water supply (hot & cold) is on & the drain hose is
not kinked or restricted. Here is a copy of the service manual showing
the test modes & error codes. You can order the owners manual with
