Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB4651A Built-in Dishwasher
Welcome to FixYa Kevin
The problem is with the float switch assembly that is bad and needs replacement. A float switch on a dishwasher is designed for one thing, to stop the water flow from the dishwashers water valve. To access the dishwasher float switch regardless of the make or model, 99% of dishwashers are accessed from behind the toe kick panel i.e by removing the front bottom access panel. When the timer or main control call for water, power is sent through the float switch wires, when the dishwasher has filled up raising the plastic mushroom looking piece high enough, the switch will stop power from getting to the water valve. That is the idea behind the switch, to further test this switch with a volt meter you can view this video: Please get back to me if you have any other questions.
