Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB5600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Stopped Working Today, my dishwasher made a single load popping noise then quite working all together. I checked the breaker and let it cool down, tried re-energizing it and it's seems as if it isn't getting power. I check with a voltmeter and there is power at the terminals but nothing works. Any suggestions? Is there an internal fuse?

    As an additional note, I checked the door switches, continuity is good through both of them, unless I'm missing a parallel leg somewhere. I also check the motor overload protector, got a good reading through it and the windings of the motor (i.e some resistance, not opened or shorted). I'm hesitant to start disassembling the door panel and looking in there, sure could use a bit of help here

    I have a Maytag MDB5601AWQ dishwasher, about 5 years old. It suddenly stopped and wouldn't let us run it, with no lights on the console. I replaced the control circuit board, and now have cycle lights, but still get no response to the start key and/or autoclean. I disconnected power and checked the keypad for resistance response while pressing the start key and it checked good. Door latches are fine with continuity through both legs. I have voltage between ST3 and ST11... Any help would be appreciated.

MW, sounds like something blew on the board. I assume you do not have any lights lit on the dishwasher. Try the manual test mode by pressing the heavy wash key five times followed by the start key. If no results, remove the inner door and check for power between st-3 and st-11 on the board. Should have 120V with the door switches closed. If you have the voltage there and the control doesn't work, then it's the board. If you do not have voltage there, it's a power issue. Start with the door switches and work back to the cord terminal. There should be a tech sheet behind the toe panel that can help. back.

Bosch dw shu043 dishwasher stopped working in middle of cycle

Hi and welcome to Fixya. Based on your post, I would start by first shutting off the breaker. Then removing the kick plate ( access panel at the bottom ) and checking the wiring at the junction box for the dishwasher 120vac supply line. Remove the murret's and visually inspect the wire for "resistance burn" and strip the wires back and install new fastener's if necessary to repair. This is actually quite common to find a wire connector come loose due to improper fastening and once the unit is in use for a while the connections heat & cool, become loose from normal operating vibrations and burn up from all the added heat caused by "resistance". The end result is no power to the controls. Check it out and post back what you find. Thanks for visiting "fixya" and please take a moment to rate the solution/suggestion provided here for you. Good luck. Macmarkus :)

Pump was working fine yesterday popped the breaker

Hi Mohn,

Don't know your geographic location, but where I am we've been in the single digit temperatures for three days. Everything that can freeze has frozen.

If you are in a similar area, even though the water in the spa (I'm assuming the spa pump is being used on a spa) is heated, the pump housing isn't. If it iced up, it could very well cause the problems you describe.

Comment back with some more detail before I continue down what might be the wrong path.

Best regards

Washer stopped mid-cycle, water in the bottom of the tub. Circuit breaker popped due to over-load. Reset breaker and it immediately popped again. Could this be cause by a jam in the grinder assembly?

My dishwasher just quit mid cycle. (still has water in it) It is a whirlpool partner 1. I checked the breaker and it wasn't tripped... but i reset it anyways. When I tried the dishwasher again it worked for a second and turned off. I have done reading about the thermo fuse but can't find it. Not sure how big of a problem this is.
Dishwasher is 5 years old.


Will not wash

sounds like the circulating pump. could be a foreign object stuck in the pump impellor. could also be the pump capacitor - cheap part

Bosch SHU3306UC dishwasher stopped

Make sure you visit the Bosch dishwasher recall website as this model is under the recall with a faulty controller which may cause a fire! Check your model under
then call 800.856.9226 to setup a recall repair appointment. We just found out about this recall and was never notified by Bosch even though we registered our unit after we purchased about poor customer service! Hope this helps!
