Can not start run?


follow this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas
1. No power to the dishwasher
Make sure there's power getting to the dishwasher. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power. Sometimes the power cord disconnects at the dishwasher (inside the junction box, behind the bottom kick panel), if this is the case, the wiring must be repaired or replaced.

2. Door switch
Replace if defective.

Main Control Module / Timer

The main control module or mechanical timer controls all the functions of the dishwasher. To check this you will need to find the 2 leads that supply the power to the control. They will be marked on the wiring diagram. They usually come from the hi - limit fuse or the door switch. When the door is latched you should have 120 volts entering the main control. If you do not the problem is not the control. If you do have power entering the control but none of the functions work properly or it does not respond at all you will need to replace main control module. this is easy to replace but not very inexpensive to purchase. Consider the age and overall condition when purchasing this part.

Dishwasher will not start


  • Door latch.
    Make sure door is closed and properly latched.
  • Delay start option.
    If delay start option is available, has it been set and is unit still in time delay before starting.
  • Cycle setting.
    Check to see if cycle is set correctly (refer to Operating Instructions in the "Use & Care Manual").

    My Maytag QuietSeries 400 dishwasher won't start. Sometimes 88 flashes on the display and that's all. What does that mean? Model # MDB7601AWB


    Dishwasher will not start Is the door open or unlatched?
    Make sure the door is completely closed and latched. On models with a dual-digit display, the control displays "- -" during a cycle if it believes the door is not latched. Check for obstructions (spoons, etc), interfering with the door operation. A lower dish rack that is installed backward will also cause incomplete door closure.

    Check your household electrical box to see if a fuse has blown or if the circuit breaker has tripped. If the unit has a plug-in power cord, make sure it is plugged in.

    Does your dishwasher have a rotary timer knob? (Some Models)
    The cycle selection must match the position of the timer knob. Turn the timer knob to the beginning of the preferred cycle. The timer knob should click when you reach the start of the cycle.

    Is the control lock option activated?
    Press and hold the Heated Dry option (button with lock icon) for three to five seconds and the light should turn off. Instructions are also placed on the label on top of the inner door to unlock the controls.

    Is the delay start option activated?
    To cancel the delay and cycle, press Cancel/Drain.

    Has the motor stopped for less than 10 minutes?
    The motor may have stopped due to an overload. If this is the case, the motor will automatically reset itself within 5-10 minutes.

    Is the Start/Resume indicator flashing?
    Opening the door or interrupting the power can stop the cycle. Close the door and press Start/Resume. If the Start/Resume indicator flashes three times when you press Start/Resume, the dishwasher is waiting for you to open the door after the last cycle. Open and close the door, and then press Start/Resume.
    On models where the controls are on top of the door be sure to close the door within 3 seconds of pressing the Start/Resume to start or resume the dishwasher cycle.

    Is the water shutoff valve (if installed) turned on?
    Make sure that the water shutoff valve is turned on.

    NO POWER TO THE MACHINE


    Hello. I can help you. Since you already checked out the power, skip that step and look at the latch.

    If your dishwasher doesn't work at all, check these:

    Power from the house
    Door switch
    Wiring
    Timer or selector switch
    Power from the house Is there power getting to the dishwasher? This can be difficult to test, because dishwashers are usually wired directly to an electrical circuit, rather than plugged into the wall. But at least check for a blown fuse or a tripped circuit breaker.

    Door switch The door switch is important because, if it's defective, the dishwasher won't work at all. To reach it, you need to remove the control panel cover, or sometimes the interior liner of the door. If it's defective, you need to completely replace it.

    Wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the dishwasher, burns and breaks the connection. If that's the problem, the wires must be repaired/replaced as necessary. If that's not the problem, check the wiring to the door switch, the wiring between the door and the lower part of the dishwasher, and the wiring to the timer. Repair any broken, burned, brittle, or defective wiring, using the proper appliance-grade wire and connectors.

    Timer or selector switch Although it's uncommon, the timer or the selector switch may be defective. If so, you need to replace the defective part, because neither of these can be repaired.

    No power to Selections, Water Did Not Drain


    When you remove the bottom panel cover, check the wiring connection inside the junction box on the right for a loose or shorted wire.
    If that's ok, open up the console and check the continuity of the thermal fuse that's clipped to the control board. Chances are it needs to be replaced.
    Good luck!

    Error flashing and won't reset.


    hi there,

    PF stands for power failure. the first you should do is check your house breaker and make sure that you did not trip the fuse.

    Does anything run? Can you hear the motor running? If not, you have no power coming into the machine. In this case it's the main control board that needs to be replaced.

    If the motor hums, it means you have power to the d/w, in that case you need to replace the touchpad.

    thanks
