Question about Maytag PDB3600A Built-in Dishwasher

Open Question

My Maytag PDB3600AWX isn't working. The motor hums as if its working but no water is in the tub. I did put a pitcher of water in the tub to see if it would pump out and it does. I don't know what else to check for. We have had lots of problems with this dishwasher, its never washed the dishes well and has flooded my kitchen to the point of having to replace flooring. I thought its was because we had just had new flooring installed and when they put the dishwasher back in the counter the hose wasn't tighten correctly but now I think maybe its something that was wrong with the dishwasher itself. Can you help me please?!? I really don't have the money to replace it at this time but do I just need to buy a new dishwasher?? Thanks for your time!! : )

SOURCE: dishwater fills with water, hot...but doesnt wash?

when in the wash phase, listen for a low hum near the wash pump. if you hear this it indicates the wash pump capacitor is faulty or something jammed in the pump.after that you will have to access the wash pump and check if there is any supply to it

SOURCE: Portable dishwasher won't stay connected to the kitchen faucet

it the faucet connector has a lever u push in order to latch on to the faucet, just jam something under it so it maintains upward pressure and wont come unlatched when the water starts flowing

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

SOURCE: Maytag MDB5100AWB Dishwasher not draining

More than likely the filter is clogged,remove the spray arm(there is a threaded cap in the center of the arm twist it to the left,then remove the # 15 or 20 torx(star shaped) screws out of the filter cover(around the edges)The filter is round and runs around the outer edge of the pump housing it lifts right out,clean it and reverse the process.It's the most common issue with not draining on this model.

Maytag legacy series washer


The drive motor which spins the drum is connected to the drum by a rubber belt. Sounds like the belt is burned through. Make sure you can spin the inside tub by hand to verify that the tub can turn freely before you replace the belt. The hum is from the drive motor just spinning freely.

I have a maytag dishwasher #PDB3600AWX and it just isn't cleaning the dishes. Does it have a water filter that can be cleaned?


It might be hard water deposits on your dishes. Go here to find out if you have hard water. http://www.citriclean.net/why-citriclean/

After the tub fills with water, I hear a humming sound for several minutes then I hear a "click" and the humming sounds stops. I notice the motor is really hot. Is it a bad motor, or could it...


I suggest that you first check to see if the drum and pulley are turning freely, that there is nothing seized. Also, sometimes having a deteriorated drive belt (the one that goes to the drum pulley) can cause the drum to put too much strain on the motor and make it overheat. So it may not be time for a motor just yet, but if everything is spinning freely then you may just have to get another motor.

My Maytag washing machine will fill with water but will not agitate as soon as the water level gets up the water shuts off and when it shut start all that happens is that it makes a humming noise


First check to see if the belts are all on under the machine, and see if the motor is turning. Chances are you have a broken belt, or the belt may be stretched and worn.If the belt is on and the motor is not turning, you may have a burnt out motor.If the belt is on and the motor is turning but the agitator isn't, you probably have a seized gearbox.But check the belts first.

Will not fill with water but works on spin cycle


If your washer won't fill with water, but works in the spin cycle then the washer is sensing that water is in the tub. If there isn't water in the tub, then it is probably a sensor. If there is water but the spin cycle doesn't get it out, then look at the pump or control board.

My neptune dryer sounds like it is going to start but then fails


sounds like a bad motor. when it hums when you push start, open the door. put a piece of tape on the door switch to hold it in. at the same time, push the start button and turn the tub with your other hand. if it starts, this only confirms it is a bad motor. the motor will need replaced. good luck. shane

Dishwasher overflows


Sounds like you've got a problem with the water intake valve(s). If it takes on water without water running in the sink, that is where I would look. If it happens when you use the sink, then I would also check your drain hose placement

Hi JOEY JIGSAW,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: 2ND MOTOR ON TUB IS HUMMING BUT NO WATER MOVMENT REPLACED WATER TODAY #1 MOTOR IS WORKING IN LOW AND HIGH SPEED BUT #2 MOTOR IS NOT KICKING ON

Definately an electrical problem. First check the switches, if you find a bad switch replace it. Check the wire connrctions. A bad connection will cause great frustration. If you've been carefull with the first two steps and it's still not working it's time to see if # 2 motor has siezed up. Do this only if you know what you're doing. It requires disconnecting the wires to the motor and applying 110 volts from another source directly to the motor wires. If the motor just hums and gets hot, it's time to replace it or take it to a small motor repair shop. It might be wise to check the Repair Directory for a repairman.

Is the machine belt driven? Look under the washer and see if the belt is laying on the floor. If so, just get a new belt.
