Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

We can't find our owner's manual. We bought a Siemens dishwasher in 2003. We just interrupted the drying cycle and now the dishwasher won't close all the way and the LED display is off, but if we push the on/off button, it starts a new wash cycle. We don't want to let it run because we're afraid of flooding. Advice?

Is there anyway to only dry the dishes? Sometimes the dishes don't get all the way dry and I just want to run the dry cycle again. Thanks! Dawn


You could simply open the door at the end of the cycle and let the air do the job. If your dishwasher is controlled by a manual dial, you could open the door, move the timer past the wash cycles stopping on the dry cycle and close the door to start another dry cycle. This option is expensive, by the way.

Thanks for your question @ FixYa.com

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.

Dish washer does not drain after final cycle


1 Check the basics. Make sure that the dishwasher has actually finish the cycle. Your dishwasher will not drain until the end of the cycle. Many things may have interrupted the cycle. Check circuit breaker and reset it if appropriate. Also check the fuse. It is possible that you could have tripped a circuit have way through the cycle. Make sure the door is properly closed. Ensure you have chosen a cycle on the dishwasher. It is amazing the problems children could accidentally cause, that are easy fixes. 2 Remove any excess food at the bottom of the dishwasher. The best way to do this is with your hands. Large food particles can block from going into the drain.This is also another extremely easy fix to make your dishwasher to drain. 3 Check to ensure that the hoses are still attached. Use your manual to find where the hoses are. If they are not attached the owner's manual will give you instructions on how the attach the hoses to your specific dishwasher. 4 Attempt to declog the line. Disconnect the hose from under your sink and check to see if there are any clogs. Use a hanger or towels, remove the clog from the hose. 5 Remove the dishwasher basket. Again refer to your owner's manual for specific instructions.Normally you will remove it with a screwdriver. Make sure to work slowly. As you take the basket apart, you will be able to see if it needs to be cleaned. If there is dirt or debris, you can clean the parts with a rag or paper towel. After cleaning these parts, you can replace the basket. 6 Call a plumber. If the dishwasher is still not draining, the problems are a little more complex to fix. It is advisable to call plumber to make your dishwasher drain.

Cleaning out dishwasher


Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.

Dishwasher has an odor

Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.

Good Luck
