Question about Dishwashers

1 Answer

I have a model MDB7100AWQ, it fills with water but the motot won't start. Is there a reset code for this model? I did find a melted off plastic spoon handle in the bottom, could this cause it to trip something in the unit? The lights on the door switches come on but it only clicks, and won't start.

Thanks for using FixYa. To start with check the door switch if that’s fine then you’ll have to replace the motor. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Frigidaire plhs3teesbe model won't make ice


Hello - If your ice maker has stopped producing ice completely, you can try to check the following:



1. It may be turned off. Look for the wire along the right side of the ice maker that looks a bit like a coat hanger. If the wire is in the raised position, the ice maker is turned off. If so, try one of these: If your ice maker has a small red plastic lever, lower it to lower the wire. If there's no plastic lever, simply lower the wire. In either case, the ice maker should begin producing ice again.


2. Also make sure that the temperature is 8 degrees Fahrenheit or lower. If the freezer is too warm, the ice maker won't cycle properly.


3. The ice maker fill tube may be blocked with ice. If so, melt the blockage using a hair dryer-but be careful to not melt any plastic parts!


4. Also replace the water shut-off valve or water-inlet valve, or both, if necessary. The ice maker head assembly may have broken parts. Look to see if the gears are broken. Check to see if the small plastic arms that rest against the ice rake are broken. If the ice maker head assembly is modular and you've found broken parts, you can just replace it.

I have a emerson insinkerator that has nothing working checked breaker and reset button??no power??


First check that you have voltage at the outlet and that the switch is working. There is a reset button on the bottom of the unit - have you tried to reset that? If not, try it! If that doesn't do it, unplug your unit and use an allen wrench to rotate the motor (CW), if it won't turn then you either have something like a bone or spoon wedged in it or the motor is bad. If the motot is bad it is cheaper to replace than to repair.

Check the solenoids on the water inlet valve. Often when they fail they get extremely hot and melt the outside housing. These are cheap to replace and can be done easily. I recommend contacting TheRepairClinic.com and using the online help feature to help diagnose the problem. They also carry a huge selection of parts, ship via UPS, and can give you specific advice on how to repair your particular machine.

Melted a spoon on element. What can I do to remove plastic on element


The way to remove it is you need to raise the temprature of the element to the level when the spoon melted, not so easy of a task, but nothing else will do it.

I would fire the element, and be ready with a damp terry cloth towel, and wipe the spoon free. Another way would be to use a propane torch, but you MUST protect everything around the element or you will cause more damage.

The key is that you have to acheive the same temprature that melted the spoon, and it will release and leave little, if any residue..

Break as much of the plastic off as you can and just let the rest melt off or melt it with a solder gun . won't hurt anything. If you want is easy to replace just hall machine from hole and tilt back remove the wires and the nuts holding it on .

MAYTAG DISHWASHER MODEL MDB7100AWQ


My MDB7100AWQ has suddenly stopped working. It will fill but then stops and will not move into wash. When I press the drain/off button the lights work but it does not drain. I do hear a switch in the door operate when I press the drain/off.
