Three-year old Maytag dishwasher is making terrible buzzing sound while still squirting water. Wondering if disposal on unit is jammed, and if so, how to unjam it.

Got the washer fixed by removing parts until I got down to the chopper, which was jammed by a small, plastic ice cream spoon. Was relatively easy to fix. Keeping the screws with the parts they secured was helpful.

Our year old Maytag Dishwasher...Legacy Series...won't drain, which means it won't run another load


If you have a silver air gap on your counter top start there. It will pull off or turn off, make sure it is clean. Check your drain line to the garbage disposal, All ways run the water near your DW until it is hot. Most people do not do this and it amounts to 85 % Of my calls. Hope this helps.

When starting wash cycle the dishwasher cda cw447 doesnt appear to be getting enough water in and is making a droning / whirring / electrical ? noise. pipes all connected ok inc aquastop water supply unit,...


Try removing the inlet pipe, and refitting, might fix it, else likely that the
Inlet water soleniod failing/failed or tiny mesh filter (it does come out for cleaning) behind the inlet hose clogged. Temporaily bypass the aquastop water stop unit; it might be the culprit!

A replacement solenoid is usually only about £10 from www.espares.co.uk, or ebay sellers (no connection with these but they are very good), fits in minutes (2 or 3 electrical spades ,and a posidrive or two) and usually fixes all water related problems. the noise you can hear is probably the solenoid trying to actuate, will be droning/buzzing sound.
could simply be stuck with some foreign matter in there that's got through the mesh filter but unlikely. they normally fail and sound terrible.

Don't throw your dishwasher away for the sake of a £10 part.
Good luck

I have an old Maytag dishwasher, which came with the home we purchased 20 years ago. i am wondering how water efficient it is; it still works, but I also frequently find it with dirty water which has...


It is as efficient as any dishwasher made today. It is also mechanically better than most made today. Keep it running as long as you can.
Under the sink find the dishwasher drain line,using a piece of wire or string tie the DW hose up under the sink so that there is a rise in the hose from the disposal drain outlet.This way drain water will not go back down the hose.

That sounds like the motor trying to start but being jammed it is shutting off via an internal breaker. Check for something in the bootom of dishwasher that might have gotten down there that could do this. You might have to take the sprayer off and some things below that.

Maytag mdb9150


check pump and solonoids click/work, if no mechanical noise, could be the circuit board, but they can be expensive. :(
if the solenoids click, and allows water in, then the pump might be jammed, with grit, clean and reinstall... good luck !

Top Rack of Kenmore doesn't clean


the chances are the water pipes are blocking in the base. check all the hoses are clear of debris then check things like the spray arm holes are clear and also check on the water level in the cavity.
