Question about Dishwashers
Posted by Anonymous on
Is this a dishwasher or a washing machine that you have a problem with.
The drum is usually in a washing machine. The motor you hear running is the drain motor. So this is a normal operation of front loading washing machines. When the drum stops spinning, the drain pump takes away the remaining water and then a timer lock comes into play to make sure the clothes are settled dowm before you can open the door.
So I do not see there is any problem. Please accept the solution if ok else post a comment to confirm the exact problem with your appliance.

I have a Maytag MDB4650AWW. It appears to have water flowing to it and good pressure but for some reason the jet arms are not spinning and therefore the dishes are not as clean as they should be.

Tips for a great answer:
The door will remained locked while draining water. If during installation the washer was plugged in and turned on without water hoses attached, the washer may attempt to drain for 8 minutes before the door unlocks. Let the washer run until the door unlocks. Do not turn off the washer or unplug the washer.
Does water remain in the washer after the final spin?
If water remains in the washer after the final spin, then the door will not unlock. Select Drain/Spin or Spin Only to remove any remaining water from the washer. The door should unlock at the end of the cycle. For models that have Rinse/Drain & Spin, push the Extra Rinse button to turn off the rinse to remove excess water.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light on?
If the Add A Garment light is on, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed once. Pressing the Start button will restart the washer at the same point where it left off in the cycle.
Is the door locked and the Add A Garment light off?
If the Add A Garment light is off, then the washer door will unlock after the Pause/Cancel button is pressed twice. The door will not immediately unlock while the cycle is running due to a possible high-water level in the washer, high-water temperature, tumbling or spinning. It may take up to five minutes for the washer to stop spinning and draining before the door will unlock. You will hear the door click when it unlocks.
Trying to gain access into a locked door can be a bit frustrating. Upon researching your question I found some links that may help you unlock your washer door. I attached all links below. I hope this helps!
