Question about Maytag Dishwashers

Open Question

I have a Maytag dishwasher model MDB4709PAW4 that i have been having to use the cancel button to drain the bottom of the residual water. Now it does not drain when the cancel button pushed.

The dishwasher makes no sound after the cancel button pushed and turns off after a minute.

The problem is a clog in the hose or the check valve from the drain pump. I will post back shortly with directions to unclog it.
Thanks/Mike

depending on the age of this unit it may have food blocking what is called the "check valve".
on most models it is mounted right on the outlet of the pump housing. one model uses a 4 inch plastic tube style device and is about 1/2 inch on the pump and 1" on the hose. inside of it is where the food items can block the check valve. remove the hose and unscrew the check valve from the pump and see if something is blocking it.
on newer units the check valve is built into the drain hose, if you hose has a 90 degree elbow molded into it where the hose hooks up to the drain pump. once again take the hose off and look inside the hose or try to blow through the hose and see if the hose is clear.
good luck tom

Try cleaning out the air gap.  The air gap is not part of the machine, and is located on your sink. If this becomes clogged, it may cause the machine to not drain properly.  Also, I know you said you checked the drain hose and cleaned as far as the filter and chopper blade, but have you checked the lower filter?  There is a filter located underneath the machine that should periodically be cleaned.  To check this, you need to access the machine from underneath by removing the bottom vanity cover. Hope that one of these helps!

Hello Richard, Welcome to Fixya ! You've come to the right place. The problem you're experiencing unfortunately is a common one. The water inlet valve has been an issue with B/S/H built ( this includes bosch, thermador, seimens & gaggenau ) dishwasher's going back to the mid 90's. The part to repair it is available at most brick & mortar appliance part centers or you can check out on-line vendors such as repairclinic, apwagner etc. Do a search for part # 1105846 at repairclinic, you'll see what I'm talikng about. By the way it's about $35. Hope that helps move you forward. Let me know if I can assist you further, or need help on how to change it etc. It's relatively easy with Bosch. Thanks for coming to "fixya" for your inquiries and please take a second to rate this answer according to my helpfulness. Goof luck. Macmarkus :)

Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

You may have a defective pump, on a control card issue...
you may also try to reset the circuit breaker, and see if that helps. If not i suggest you contact a service company.

Start button will not work on dishwasher


Make and model would be nice to know. Reset it by unplugging it but if it is under the counter find the breaker and shut if off for a minute then turn it back on.

I can't turn on my KitchenAid Superba dishwasher. I pushed Normal and Start, and the Normal light started flashing, but didn't turn on. Pushed Cancel and now both the Normal and Cancel are...


Did you try turning off the power and then connecting it again?
If still problem is there open the door. Press the following sequence of buttons HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry,HI Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry. Now close the dishwasher door and latch it too and press the cancel button. This must reset the dishwasher.

Start button does not work, cancel button gives life but no actio


Generally with the push button models they get confused and don't know what cycle they are in. I have many of these at the Apartments where I am the Maintenance Supervisor. I have not had to repair one of these dishwashers. The easiest fix is to reset it. Reach under the sink and unplugged it for about 30 seconds to a Minute then plug it back in. You should be just fine after you do that.

Whirlpool Dishwasher won't drain during normal cycle


As you say a clogged line or valve does not make sense.

Try running it without the heated drying and see if it empties or if the cancel button will work then.

The dishes should air dry quickly if you empty it and open the door.

It could be a defective thermostat allowing it to get too hot during the heat cycle

''clean'' light flashing (whirlpool Dishwasher GU2300XTLS1 model)


I had the same problem recently and a repair person came to my home to fix the dishwasher. He said he had to reset the control panel. He did this simply by making sure the soap dispenser door inside the washer was closed, then making sure the main dishwasher door was closed and locked. Then he quickly pushed the Heated Dry button and the Hight Temp wash button alternately. He said each button needed to be pushed twice within five seconds. After he did this all the lights on the control panel came on, then turned themselves off before the washer went in to a test cycle. This simple reset fixed the whole problem. Works great so far.

The "Rinse Only Button" will not function even after going through the "Cancel" cycle.


br, sounds like you have a stuck keypad. This would be the only reason it is switching to a different cycle. Catriver..post back.
