I am sorry to hear that you have had issues with your dishwasher motor humming and water stopping. While I'm not exactly sure what the flashing light means, I am sure this is an error sign. I would be sure to talk to an appliance repair technician that has experience with your brand of dishwasher. http://www.repairsbyanderson.com/our-services/about-us/valparaiso-in-appliance-repair/

Pl refer user manual. In general flashing light may mean : no water flow, salt chamber empty, door not closed etc. It all depends on the error code message designed.assigned by the manufacturer.

Coffee pot located on counter directly above dishwasher leaked coffee down front of dishwasher. Heavy light began flashing and will not stop. What can I do?


Actually, I think some coffee got down into the base and triggered the flood sensor. (Or it may coincedentally be that your dishwasher has a leak that triggered the flood sensor). You would have to pull the DW out, remove the panel on the left and right-hand sides, and dry all the water (or coffee) out.

Maytag, model MDB7100AWB, acts spuratic!? 4 days ago it hummed most fo the evening, I just thought it was the fridge. There was water sitting in the bottom when I opened the door - and the humming...


probably the drain pump, access is underneath and to the right of pump housing, the drain hose connects to main housing and the drain motor is right and just behind where hose connects. open door part way for easier access. and use shop vac to remove as much water as possible, then have 2 or 3 bath towels to clean up if you try on your own. local parts house will have drain pump if you take model # with you

My model number is 70209974. My dishwasher either won't start at all or it starts sounds as though it is filling then stops and make a humming sound but nothing is happening. There is no error code...


Hello

Unplug the appliance and take off the inspection panel below the door.

Check to see if the base has water in it.

When these machines have a leak into the base the circulation pump motor tends to sit in the water (poor design).

If your motor was wet, this would trip the mains.

It may also blow the pcb.

You could be looking at a pcb and motor change to repair your appliance.

It may be worthwhile drying out the motor, a fan heater aimed into the inspection panel (open) would help.

Once dry, try the machine again.

If still no joy, take the door apart and see if there is physical damage to the control board in the door.

My Maytag QuietSeries 400 dishwasher won't start. Sometimes 88 flashes on the display and that's all. What does that mean? Model # MDB7601AWB


Dishwasher will not start Is the door open or unlatched?
Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

Is the control lock option activated?
Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three to five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

Is the delay start option activated?
To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

Dishwasher starts to work but after 30 seconds stops and two lights start flashing on pannel


Ok so your dishwasher won't do anything... it justs sits there and "Hums" you can't make it respond to any controls, and the ONLY way to Stop it. is to unplug the unit, replugging back in it simply "Hums" again and will do nothing.
Now this happens because, the STOP Button, is pressed and the "Door Opened", during the Wash Cycle. This should NOT be done. You shouldNEVER TURN IT OFF MID-CYCLE. you should instead, Simply, pull on the handle, to Open the door, the system will take care of everything, after, you close it,and pick up where it left off. The turning OFF, makes the machine "Think" that a New Cycle, is going to be done, before the old one is finished, and resets itself to do it all again. But it still has water, that's not meant to be there so it must dump it out.
Now, the FIX. Take the Dishwasher, out, and tip over on it's side, tip to about a 45' angle. Water will come out from underneath, this is from a small "Overflow" reservoir. this reservoir has an "Anti-Flood" switch. The removing of this water will "Reset" this Switch, and allow the dishwasher to work again.
So what happens, is this, when the STOP button is pressed Mid-Cycle, the machine must "Dump" whatever water is still in the machine, into the "Overflow Reservoir". This water then causes the Anti-flood switch to jam, and this stops the machine, until it is reset,by the above method.Service manual below, if the above doesn't help. http://appliancejunk.com/ge/dishwasher/31-9137.pdf

GE Dishwasher no water upon start, humming, blinking lights


Seems like the anti flood is activated when water (even a small amount) appears on the bottom of the machiene. This is usualy a leaking pipe but can also be caused by a clogged pipe. Most machiens do have a plastic pipe that (from the flat water tank) feeds water to the bottom of the machiene in case of an internal fault. The anti flood is normaly a polystireen float with micro switch on the base of the washer. This automatically puts the outlet pump on to drain the water. The machiene does not work exept the outlet pump in this mode.

Sounds like the motor is stuck. If your careful you can unplug the dishwasher or turn the breaker off, take the bottom panel off and reach in with your finger and spin the motor assembly.

Quick Rinsw button blinking


I may have fixed my similar problem- I opened up the machine to get access to the control panel as tech17 advised- then in addition to disconnecting the mylar ribbon, I disconnected all the connections to the control panel.... keep in mind to ensure not to confuse any of the connectors you disconnect. Running a cycle at this time... seems as if working.. can't tell if water is running or just the motor- -- HA! -- i confirmed no water being pumped in.... We then found a float switch (Item 30 on schematic) that got loose from its casing on the front interior right lower side... we put that switch into its proper place and now ALL IS WELL!!!! Yippee!!!
