Remove the bottom strainers plates and make sure that there is nothing obstructing the outlet pipe and the pump or the selector valve. If possible back flush through the outlet pipe and try draining the machine again before using it again.

At the end of a wash cycle, when the door is opened, the spray arm continues to spray some water inside. Also, this sometimes coincides with water continuously draining out of the dishwasher which I...

at the end of the rinse cycle, it is normal to have some residual water spray from the jets. it is residual water pressure. If it sprays for more than a couple of seconds then it could be and obstruction in the fill valve or high water pressure. required pressure is 30 psi. Any water above the stand pipe will be drained out.
One last recommendation, this type of dishwasher needs to be fully drained (stand pipe removed) at least once a day.

good luck

Hi there Washing Machine model: WFA0877A My wash cycle was abruptly ended and all three indicator lights are switched on. How do I resolve this?

send your email get the user manual
all three lights on is blocked up drain
the pump not rotating {check for wires and coins}

i would empty the machine fully at the drain cycle and also at the pump filter
till its all empty
switch off and remove the water pipes and the mains plug
then pull out and lay the machine over on the side
opposite the soap drawer

then underneath you will see the pipe that goes from the drum
to the pump
take it off both ends and check its totally clear and any trap {a ball and also sometimes in a cage}
shine a light inside the drums and look around for socks or tights or plastic etc {have kids check for lego plastic toys etc etc }
clothing wires in the pump end

and check the drain
make sure the drain at the waste end is clean and flows well at the sink etc...

put it all back together
and try to hold in the program select or start stop button for a few seconds when you apply mains

then this resets the fault it detected

it should work aok
if not what part of the cycle did or does it stop at???
this will give more info that the three stuck lights

i can see the manual online for it
perhaps it has some details

Hi gillsteer,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:


After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

HI, I have seen this a lot in my 13 years of maintenance work, the problem is the drian line freezes up and when the frig goes into defrost cycle the water has no place to go so it leakes into frig. He is using the auger to clean ice out of drain line. After you clean out we would use a heavy guage copper wire and wrap around heating coil and put other end down into drain tube so when defrost cycle kicks on it will heat wire and drain tube will not freeze up,this would solve the problem and would never get a nother work order agian. Hope this helps.

Maytag dishwasher not draining fully

Try cleaning out the air gap.  The air gap is not part of the machine, and is located on your sink. If this becomes clogged, it may cause the machine to not drain properly.  Also, I know you said you checked the drain hose and cleaned as far as the filter and chopper blade, but have you checked the lower filter?  There is a filter located underneath the machine that should periodically be cleaned.  To check this, you need to access the machine from underneath by removing the bottom vanity cover. Hope that one of these helps!
