Maytag Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


It may sound loud and like something is terrably wrong - but when we researched and took the pieces of the sprayer arm out all the way down to the drain - we found 2 small pieces of nut shells - that's it ! They were making the dishwasher sound as if it had something really wrong with it. We removed the nut shells - put all the parts back together - it runs perfect!! Just remember to place the parts and screws in the order they came out - so you put it back together correctly

Almost anything can cause that. Be specific and we will hazard a guess.

Contact Maytag and/or an appliance parts supplier to inquire.

It reads like a water valve or water level switch is bad or hanging.

Perhaps a safety switch somewhere. I would check inside for a utensil that fell down into the impeller or the like. Also look at the door latch area; maybe a switch there is not closing properly.

Hi.

The model indicated: MDB5651A does not have display and the error codes are shown like flashing lights. If that is your model and problem please just tell me what lights are flashing.

In Maytag with display instead, the L on display means that the machine is control locked. That is not an error message, but a code telling that the machine has been locked by the user (probably by mistake since you are the user).

I quote from Maytag technical documentation:

? If a cycle or option pad is pressed after the controls have been locked, the indicator light next to lock graphic will flash five times. On selected models with a countdown display, the display will flash the symbol "L" simultaneously with lock indicator.

? This option does not lock the door, only the dishwasher controls.

To set :
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. An indicator light next to the lock graphic will illuminate when the controls are locked.

To Cancel Control Lock:
1. Press the Heated Dry pad for three seconds.
2. The indicator light will go off as instructed.

Try pressing the the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. If that doesn't work disconnect power. Connect back and try again unlock (power off does not remove the lock). If that still does not work there may be a faulty part. In that case turn appliance off and give me the full model number.

Start holding down the Heated Dry pad for three seconds. In normal conditions that is enough to get rid of the L and of control lock.

If you need parts or schematics see this tip explaining how to find parts and diagrams for most appliances: Where do I find parts and diagrams for my appliance?

Regards.

Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.

Dishwasher has an odor

Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.

Good Luck

I have the dishwasher working again. Now I have a problem because while checking things out I took out the pump sump support bracket part w10300599 and I don't know where to put it back in. Does anyone have a picture of this installed?

To reset those you need to interrupt the power to the unit, you can do this by finding the breaker it is on and turning it off for a minute or two. Then try again and let us know

I am not familiar with the model but I doubt it - few people these days use the highly inefficient soap dispenser, preferring to add detergent directly into the wash drum. I suggest you read the instruction booklet.

Sorry I only have more questions. If you observe the following things it may help rule out the thermostat or heating element . There are similarities to my problem. My dishwasher run for 4 seconds and stops briefly and starts again and will do that for ever. 1. Will it run properly in RINSE ONLY mode? 2. Does it run constantly or stop /starts continuously? 3. Does the soap dispenser open? 4. Does the timer count down? Ie cycle reads 2H and counts down, at least on my model. 5. Finally noticing if all the normal sequencing is happening. Ie turns on, pump empties the dishwasher, fill occurs, arms spin, and so forth. you should be able hear the unit empty and refill again and the rinse light goes on. Sorry I could'nt be more help but possibly we can help each other.

i don't know. sounds like a fault in the program. consider unplugging machine for 10 mintes. plug it back in and run a short wash to see if the program has reset itself. if not OK, call for repair estimate then decide if you can live with it as is,-- have someone try to repairit -- or replace it with a new one which may offer extended warranty for $$.

Yeah, those Maytag DW's are known for having latch problems. Usually, you can just pull the door open by pulling hard. But if that doesn't work, you might be able to unscrew the latch, and then open the door. With the door open, you can now take it apart to get to the latch and replace it.
