Amana DW adb1100aww New install won't start


have you checked to see if the white and black (or hot) wires are reversed.
It is very common to have this problem.
some plug wires have a smooth edge and a rippled side, one wire per side and the ground wire is green or in the middle.
if there is a side that has a rippled edge make sure that it is on the black wire of the dishwasher and the white to the smooth side.
I remember this in this way: if i hook the power side to an oscilloscope it would show a wave pattern and if I do the same with the common or white wire then it is smooth a straight line

Where on dishwasher is power supply? like how do we connect to power?


You connect your incoming 120v supply to the black and white wires on your d/w. the black and white wires are located at the bottom of your d/w on the right hand side in a small box. You may need 1/4in nut driver to open the box and there you will find your white(neutral) and black(hot power) wires located
thanks.

My Maytag Qriet Series 100 Dishwasher won't drain


Check the drain hose connection at the sink drain for local blockage. If ok, you may have to tear down the lower spray arm assembly down to the deck (noting orientation and position as you remove parts). Look for clogged screens and clogged openings in the deck. You can use a vacuum hooked to 'blow' to make sure these openings are clear. Wash the screens in hot water, detergent, and white vinegar to remove water and food deposits. Make sure upper and lower spray arms have open spray holes and no split seams. Hope this gets you running again!

I lost my manual and i can't fiqure out how to connect the dishwasher. i see the light that shows what to wash but the power buttom is not on


When you say connect, I assume you mean you are installing or reinstalling a dishwasher. With the power off, you always connect the black wire with the black wire on the dihswasher. This is the HOT or the LINE wire. The white wire hooks to the white which is the COMMON wire, and the bare copper wire connects to the green screw or green wire and is the GROUND. If you are using a pig tail (plug in connection) the common wire will usually have a line or series of lines going the length of the wire. Just be sure you identify the correct wire because a dishwasher will run with the hot and the common connected backwards which can create a dangerous situation if a short develops inside the dishwasher. Use wire nuts twisted on snugly and enclose all wiring connections in the connection box. Hope this helps! Ken
