Question about Maytag Dishwasher

Open Question

I have an energy star Maytag dishwasher. It is 13 months old. We bought Maytag because we thought it was the Cadillac of appliances. Now on the control panel the cycle (heavy, normal, light) lights up as well as the heated dry , etc. However, when I push the start button no light and the machine does not start. It iws model # MDBH989AWQ3, serial # FY4901476. Any ideas???? Mary Schettler e-mail mwschett@yahoo.com

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher won't start

"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

SOURCE: Maytag MDBH950AWS Dishwasher won't start

We have a Maytag Dishwasher that won't start. The only button that lights up is the "Heavy Wash" cyle. When this button is pressed, the "Heated Dry", "Sanatize" and "Extra Rinse" lights up. The dishwasher doesn't start. Eventually all of the lights go out. the buttons start/cancel do not light up.could you in some way help?
Thank you.

SOURCE: The heated dry and clean lights flash together

I had this same problem. I read on another blog that the manual recommends that you turn the power off to dishwasher. When you turn the washer back on, the lights still flash but then push the off button. The lights stopped flashing.

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher, no power, then flashing lights, now no power.

Had the same problem, removed the kick panel to find a set of instructions under the insulation, had to push a sequence of the panel buttons, its been running great for a couple of weeks now!

My DW80F600 dishwasher leaves dishes with a nasty film on them. What do I do?


Fill soap dispenser with white vinegar, leave dishwasher empty and run regular cycle. For regular monthly maintenance run with vinegar once a month.

My Maytag legacy series dishwasher work one day and not the next


MAYTAG is AWFUL....READ REVIEWS before buying..If I only knew.Another thing Thanksgiving time,all the cooking,company & dishes,I have to hand wash after 3 says of prepeing food.WTF!!!
I am not soo happy at this time.It worked fine after a strugle to get it started & now the next load it's dead as ever.It has the lights lit dim but nothing else will go.I tried everything & cant even read the manuel on it since maytag charges for a viewing of there 5 month old product's manuel. I lost my manuel on mine & refuse to pay to read up to see if there is a reset button.I paid enough for this 5 months ago & it was only installed 4 months new! how's that for crappy appliance not to mention my lemon of a washer i got a few years ago.I see maytag has shittttttttyyyy appliances now when they use to be on top! I's ratehr buy a generic brand for less since it's got more of a warranty to offer.This here buy one or you lose as I & a millioon more..READ the REVIEWS Millioons of us been screwed & this economy who has it to cough up? NOT I !
Have a blessed Thanksgiving everyone ~~ Mine will only get better once I replace my appliances to a more trusting brand & with assurance of a better brand,I dont think I'll have this dealing in a short 4 to 5 month time frame & to mention again on a holiday tons of dishes.I want my money back in triple damages from all this stress
So posting my solution is DON'T BUY MAYTAG

I have a Maytag Dishwasher MDB6601AWW. It went through a normal wash and we loaded it and it now will not start. It flashes 1H, 2H, up to 9H. It has flashed 81. What do these codes mean?


Peace Friend,
ngafm At your service!

You said,you have a Maytag Dishwasher MDB6601AWW. It went through a normal wash and you loaded it and it now will not start. It flashes 1H, 2H, up to 9H. It has flashed 81.

With an error code the only way to find and to repair this is,
First unplug the washer and wait a few minutes then restart it like rebooting your computer when its acting strange!
If it corrects the problem, GREAT!


If not only a trained laundry tech can make the electronic diagnoses.
Like we used to be able to fix my own cars, but not today they need diagnostic equipment!


How old is the washer?

If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad!
New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!!
Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket!
The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!


You will be fine
Bless You ngafm

Sticking programer dial


Hello zxnigel,
Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, The program timer on my dishwasher is sticking.
And you have to move the dial by hand as it is taking 3 hours to do the wash cycle
I think the timer needs to be replaced!

What brand an model is your machine?
And how old is your dishwasher?

Let me know this information, please.


Here is an interesting report I just read.

Repair or replace?

When to pull the plug on your old Appliance

It nearly always makes sense to undertake simple do-it-yourself repairs,
such as replacing a gasket on a refrigerator or a freezer.

Typically, you'll also find a troubleshooting section for more-serious problems
in the owner's manual.

Should you pay for a repair or buy a new model?
The answer depends mostly on the age of your appliance,
how much you bought it for,and the cost of the repair.

Follow these guidelines:

When a repair makes sense.

If your appliance is under warranty or less than four years old
paying for a repair makes sense.
Note that appliances under warranty might require service from a factory-authorized technician;
readers have found them on a par with independent repairers.

When a repair might be a wise choice.

If your appliance is out of warranty and is four to seven years old,
it might make sense to pay for a repair. Customers generally pay $100 to $200 for a repair.
But you might want to buy a new model even at this stage,
given that today's models are quieter and have added features.
Higher energy efficiency is another plus: Energy Star-qualified models made after April 28, 2008,
are 43 percent more efficient than conventional models built before 2001 and 56 percent
more efficient than those built before 1993.

When it pays to replace.

The repair costs more than half the price of a comparable new appliance.
Data also shows that it doesn't pay to fix a less-expensive applaince
six or more years old .
Thanks to better recycling programs, less than 10 percent
of a appliances you replace is likely to end up in a landfill.

Candy cs 455m dishwasher





Welcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum at your service.

You said, Candy keeps blowing the fuse. It is not the main fuse in the house(was checked). I
You think it may be the heating element. You asked any advice?

I feel you have a short somewhere . and who knows where? How old is the appliance and what did it cost?

I've seen 3 or 4 people in the past 24 hours that replaced the heating element in the same candy 455 dishwasher and still had the problem.
They told me they felt they did not want to spend any more money ont his unit cause they said, it was an inexpensive model!
So my clients told me!
