Dishwasher won't work after electrical outage

Good morning,

I have a maytag Jetcleaner EQ Plus that has been working just fine. Yesterday, we had a power outage that lasted approximately 19 hours before the electric was restored. When the lights came on, the dishwasher did not. I flipped the breaker and when the dishwasher came on, all of the lights were lit and I was unable to clear the display (almost like it was frozen and needed to be re-set). I asked Maytag if there was a re-set button and they said I need service. Is there an easy fix for this or have you heard of this problem before?

if you installed a new garbadge disposal at the same time have you popped the factory drain plug on the disposal where the dishwasher drain tube connects to the disposal. The plug is inside the disposal dishwasher connection tube . You cant see it . Just drive a screw driver through it with a hammer.Itt will pop out and then the dishwasher will drain.Just a thought.I forgot to do this to mine.

You have debris down in the pump area. To get to the problem you will work from inside the dish washer and start by removing the spray arm and then using torx driver you will need to remove upper components of the pump/motro assembly to get to the debris. good luck

either the control board or the control panel needs replacement. Most likely the latter. There is a possibility that both parts failed also. Usually water gets inside the touchpad, corroding and shorting the touchpad. Good luck

SOURCE: Maytag eq plus dishwasher- how to disassemble bottom spray arm?

its probably leaving water in it and is clogged in the elecric pum or drain hose. somethins the pump has a rubber flap that will become lodged in the outlet port. this will cause dirty water to be left in the machine because of a slow drain. start by looking at the volume of water coming into garbage disposal where drain hose hooks up.

We lost power last night and this morning the maytag jet clean dishwasher is not working, does not appear to have any power. Is there an internal circuit or something?


there are internal thermostats or even an internal type fuse kit..... it is also common after power outages when you regain power that , that sudden jolt of electricity enters or circuits again it blows out electronics.... if u have an electronic control you might have blown that control board as well hope this helps

No power to control panel after power surge


Try turning the curcuit breaker off for a few minutes. Turn it back on and see if it resets itself. If not, the outage may have shorted out the main control panel.

Maytag jetclean EQ plus dishwasher


I had the exact same problem. When the service tech came to look, my husband watched him. There was a disconnected wire to the motherboard which my husband asked can't the tech just reconnect it. The tech stated no, we needed a new motherboard. My husband reconnected the wire using tape for now & the dishwasher is working perfect. My husband is going to get somekind of calk/glue that will work permanently. This should save us from replacing the motherboard for a while. The dishwasher is only about 5 years old! My previous dishwasher was over 20 years old with no repair problems the over 10 years that I owned & used it.

I am looking for the self check test, does anyone know where I can find the instructions how to do it myself? Thank you
