    After filling with water, my Maytag jetclean EQ plus just makes a clicking noise. After a few minutes of the clicking noise, the lightwash and clean button are flashing red. I need help? We have not had the dishwasher that long. I thought Maytags last for many many years. A busy Mom of three.

I had the exact same problem. When the service tech came to look, my husband watched him. There was a disconnected wire to the motherboard which my husband asked can't the tech just reconnect it. The tech stated no, we needed a new motherboard. My husband reconnected the wire using tape for now & the dishwasher is working perfect. My husband is going to get somekind of calk/glue that will work permanently. This should save us from replacing the motherboard for a while. The dishwasher is only about 5 years old! My previous dishwasher was over 20 years old with no repair problems the over 10 years that I owned & used it.

I am looking for the self check test, does anyone know where I can find the instructions how to do it myself? Thank you

I have the Maytag JetClean Dishwasher EQ Plus. I had the same problem. When I turned it on, it would click every 5 seconds rather than run. I took the cover off, checked all the wire connections, and looked at the motherboard. One of the little blue boxes on the motherboard had popped out. I pushed it back in and now it runs great.

If it is a wire disconnected to the motherboard all you need to do is solder it back on. You need a solder GUN, not a solder stick. Use solder with resin already in it.

Only do this if you are good with a soldering gun, as if you get too much solder on you will destroy your motherboard.

Maytag jetclean quiet plus fills but wont wash or drain.


The mother board is going out, or the drain pump is failing. Try un plugging it...... by which i mean turning the power off to the unit and doing a soft reset. See if it recycles into the normal mode and works.

You need to pull it out and use a wet and dry vacuum to remove any water. then check the hoses to the drain and the pump and its housing.

Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus - Lights flashing


either the control board or the control panel needs replacement. Most likely the latter. There is a possibility that both parts failed also. Usually water gets inside the touchpad, corroding and shorting the touchpad. Good luck

Our Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus will not turn on (MDB9150AWS) and we cannot find a repair manual to troubleshoot through the problem. Maytag does not offer repair manuals on this model. Any...


Try this. From what I have found Maytag discontinued the Repair manual but it appears that all MDB and MDC models fell under this one repair manual.

Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem


This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
