I have a maytag quiet series 200 thats only 3 yrs old and now it cleans great it just leaves water in the bottom, it seem its not pumping out the water..


Is this a front loader? If so, there is a panel right below the door. Three screws hold the panel. Remove the screws, and right behind that panel is a filter. have a towel ready, and screw the filter out. it is probably clogged. Remove the debris from the basket, was it out and replace.
If its a top loader, then try running about a galleon of vinager thru it to remove the hard water build up. Good luck

I have a maytag quiet series 200 type 777-0 when i push the start/cancle it will not start?


We had the same issue with our Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher. The Start/cancel button would not work all the time. We ended up removing the front panel from the machine and on the backside of the panel there is a plastic ultra thin ribbon cable that runs from the computer box to the push button control panel. We wiggled the ribbon cable and the start button began to work, but only if the ribbon cable was held in a certain position. So we super glued the cable in that position and it's been working consistently now.

Upon closer inspection the ribbon cable appeared to have 3 or 4 very tiny dark spots on the wires.
That would indicate to me that somehow moisture slowly eroded the tiny wires and bending the cable made the connections touch again, but for how long it will work like this is anyone's guess.
Also, it appears that the ribbon cable is permanently attached to the push button control panel. So you can't replace the ribbon cable itself without buying the hole front panel.

Cannot open the dishwasher door. Maytag Quiet Ser...


This model has a problem where the handle must be depressed fully upwards to allow the latch to clear completely without straining the mechanism. The lip on which you pull open the door gives the operator a better handhold to force it open even when the mechanism is not fully depressed. Do this enough times, and the plastic tabs on the handle begin to fatigue and eventually break. The handle becomes lodged but can be forced down to eventually open the washer. By this time, a specific portion of the latch that depresses a micro-switch will most likely be broken, and the washer won't turn off if the door becomes ajar. Remove the torque screws along the inside perimeter of the door and you can spread the face panel open to access the latch unit for replacement.

How do I replace the latch on my maytag quiet series 100 dishwasher?


Unfortunately, the Maytag quiet series models have plastic latch handles that are prone to crack after time.

You should be able to order a replacement handle through a distribtor.

If you can, unlatch/open the door. Using a star screwdriver, unscrew all the screws on the inside of the door frame.

Once all the screws are removed you should be able to separate the inside of the door from the latch assembly.

From there you'll need to squeeze the latch handle together and replace it in. I'll warn you that it feels like you have to squeeze the thing so hard you might break/crack it on your own. It is a hard/tight fit if I remember correctly.

One last thing you may want to do to is check the food grinder in the middle of the washer. Sometimes the cracked pieces of the latch can end up there stuck in the grinder causing it to be louder than it should.

Hope this helped.

Maytag Dishwasher Latch Sticks


John, I had the same problem and just disassembled by removing the dozen or so screws around the inside of the door, lifting the waterproof panel, and pulling up the latch assembly to see what was broken. In my case there were plastic pieces broken off of the latch handle and where the latch hinges on the back of the control panel-the latter piece is $50 to replace. unfortunately. Good news is the disassembly and replacement will be easy as a DYI. Sorry this is too late to help you, but maybe others will have the same problem. Bruce
