Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB4100 Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Diswasher runs and cleans, the only thing that doesn't work is the gray water does not pump out. We have had this diswasher for a couple of years, first time this has happened. Is there a pump that may have gone out? Thanks in advance...

Have you recently installed a garbage disposal?? If so, your problem is most definately the plug where you attach the dishwasher hose to it. Before you attach the hose, there is a little plug in there that you have to knock out. Just disconnect the hose, stick a screwdriver or punch in there and tap it with a hammer. (Don't forget to remove that little metal plug from the grinder area) Then reattach the hose. Problem fixed!

Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.
Check also if the pump has enough pressure.

Diswasher water isn't draining?


It is most likely the drain pump. If the drain pump passes a tech's test ok, have the drain passage checked for clogs.

My diswasher has alot of water in it after we run the dishers thru. May be a clog? How can i check if there is a clog?


Hi
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Water valve not working and leak under dishwasher


The water leaking causes the float switch to activate the drain pump and as long as there is water in the pump housing area that is the only thing that will run.

Remove the water from below the unit and it should run long enough to trace the leak.

The easiest way to access this is to uninstall the unit and remove the lower back panel. remove the water wih a shopvac

remember to shut the power off.

Diswasher doesnot drain the water out


Hi fahense,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: diswasher does not drain the water out

If the motor runs but it won't empty then the pump needs replacement. If the unit washes but the motor won't come on to empty then you have a control problem. The pump is under and requires removing the d/w. The control is in the top of the door. You might consider utilizing the Repair Directory to find a repair man. If the d/w has some years on it you may compare the costs of repair verses replacement.
