Question about Maytag Dishwashers

I have a maytag dishwasher model mdb6000aww. The water will not drain from the bottom, and I am hooked up to a disposer. I think my plastic hose is to long, because I took it of from the disposal unit. It has a little kink in it, so I am just wondering if this could be my proublem.

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 have a Maytag dishwasher. The first thing I noticed was the soap oozing down the door, but it also appears that the spray arms aren't moving. The water is sitting in the bottom of the dishwasher.


Depending on your model number, Maytag dishwashers on one model have combined drain pump & spray arm pumb. On other Maytag units these pumps are stand alone pumps. Check to make sure that:
1: drain hose to drain pipe(disposal) is open and flows well, do this by disconnecting the hose from disposal end and lay flat (in a pan) on floor and see if water comes out, if it does hose is clear of gunk.
2: Check garbage disposal inlet tube where drain hose connects, if your recently installed disposal then you may have forgot to remove plastic plug,
3: Turn spray arms by hand and make sure they spin freely,
4: make sure that when you close the door it latches and you can hear the pump running.

If all the above are ok, then you have a drain/motor gone down and will need to replace it. Give us a model number and we can advise better where else to look.

Maytag dishwasher that won't drain when finished


HI, usually, if the dishwasher dose not drain properly, it will be the fault of a defective or, malfunctioning pump. i will list several problem areas to check. Inspect each area properly and, replace any component that is faulty or fouled.


1. Air gap / Drain hoses
If there is an air gap (located in the sink, near the faucet), check to see if it is clogged. Unscrew the top cap and see if there is anything blocking inside. Note: If there is no air gap installed, the dishwasher might not drain properly.

If the drain hose is clogged, the dishwasher would not drain. If there is an air gap installed, it is very common that a hose going from the air gap into the garbage disposer is clogged. Remove and clean the hose. Make sure to reattach the hose before starting the dishwasher.

Note: If you recently had a garbage disposer installed, it is common to overlook removing the drain plug.

2. Broken belt
Some dishwasher models use a belt to drive the pump. Replace the belt if found broken.

Note: Sometimes the belt would just come off the pump. Even though it might not be broken, it is recommended that you replace the belt, because it is probably too stretched out.

3. Pump
Some models have two impellers inside the pump - one, wash impeller, takes care of the wash cycles, the other, drain impeller, drains the water out. If the drain impeller is broken (broken blades, shaft), the dishwasher would not drain. Replace any broken pump components.

4. Drain solenoid
Some models (for example most GE dishwashers) use a drain solenoid to drain water out. Sometimes the solenoid gets stuck, preventing the water from draining out. Try to free up the solenoid. If unsuccessful, you might have to replace the pump assembly.

5. Motor
If the motor is stuck, it is sometimes possible to free it up by manually spinning the motor.

Replace the motor if defective.

6. Timer
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

My dishwasher will not drain. I have taken it apart and cleaned the screens but it still will not drain. Any ideas? It is a Maytag MDB6000AWW


More than likely it is your food disposal. Remove your drain line from the disposal and clean and inspect it, then clean out where it connects in the disposal. This should allow it to drain, if not remove the drain from the bottom of the dishwasher and clean it out there. This should fix your problem.

Maytag DWC7602 drainage problem from tub bottom


OK. Try these steps.
-If hooked up to a food waste disposer, be sure the "knock out" is removed from the disposal inlet.
-Be sure the drain hose is ELEVATED at least 32" so water cannot siphon back in the tub.
-Check for a food obstruction in the drain or disposer.
-Check drain hose for a kink.
-Check your home's circuit breaker or fuse box.
-Check that the cycle is completed.
Hope this helps you!

Maytag Dishwasher won't drain


on all dishwasher think of them as a simple gutter system. the water only has one drain. At the bottom, if the pump can't pump out the water, its simply a bad pump or a clogged drain hose. Food particle can clog the "drain screen", use a good quality shop vac, clean 'drain screen', remove drain hose and clean thoroughly. If the hose goes into your drain pipe, remove that and clean that really good with snake it its metal or a strong 1/2 zip tie if its plastic.

My water is not draining from my dishwasher. it has 2 inches of water in the bottom after my wash cycle. it is even throughout the bottom, so my dishwasher is balanced. This is a brand new washer.


If the drain line is connected to a disposer, check to make sure the plug has been removed from the disposer. (typically, the plastic plug inside the tube where the drain hose connects onto disposer needs to be knocked out) If this OK, look for a kinked drain hose.

  • Check sink drain and drain hose for restrictions
  • Unjam the motor
  • Unjam the pump
  • Check the drain valve
  • Check the drive belt
  • Test the timer motor
  • If you have a brand new dishwasher or garbage disposer, check the knock out plug on the garbage disposer.
