My Maytag Dishwasher wont run

check to see if your float is work properly. the float is the little dome that sits in the front lefthand corner at the bottom. lift it up a couple on time gently and make sure there is no debris such as a spoon preventing the float bob from going all the way down.

Myag dishwasher is not draining

Even though Maytag dishwashers range from simple to advanced, any type of Maytag dishwasher can potentially have a problem draining. In many cases, the failure to drain is directly related to a blockage and not caused by electrical or other operational problems. There is a high probability that you can repair a Maytag dishwasher that is not draining without the help of a professional.

Press the "Start/Resume" button on the front of the dishwasher if the dish-washing cycle was cut off before it was able to complete. Close the appliance door within three seconds of pressing the button.

Remove the screw that connects the drain hose to the disposal inlet. Place the tip of a flat head screwdriver in the inlet and along the top edge of the knockout plug, which is located just inside the inlet. Tap the end of the screwdriver with a hammer as many times as needed until the knockout plug gets moved out of its place. The knockout plug does not allow water to flow and causes the water in the dishwasher to backup.

3. Pull out the dishwasher and look for kinks or pinches in the drain hose. The hose must be free of defects to work properly.
4. Flip the switch to run the food disposal to ensure there are not food items inside that would prohibit the free flow of water between the disposal and the dishwasher.
5. Open your fuse box and flip the switch for the breaker associated with the dishwasher to the "On" position if it happens to be set to "Off" because of a power surge.
I hope you find it very helpful. Thanks for using fixya

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.

Maytag dishwasher mdbh950awb

Sounds like you have a control panel and/or control board issue. Normally when operator functions fail or "halfway" work the main control board, associated keypad, or wiring are the likely suspect. Now...another remote possibility could be the door latch not closing properly. However, this would affect ALL functions. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Dishwasher Doesn't Start

on a dishwasher an ohmmeter is almost useless. the best way to check is to look for voltage. at the door switch check for voltage to ground on both sides. if you have 120 on both sides of the switch then follow the wire over to the control board. if you have 120 going into the control board and nothing coming out of the control then you nood to start looking for a broken neutral. however the likelyhood that its the control panel may be a better idea especially if you are hitting buttons and nothing happens. try reseating any ribbon cables
