Resolved Question:

I have a Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus (model MDB7100AWB). Water circulates through the dishwasher, but neither the top or bottom wash arms spin and water doesn't come out of the spray tower. Any sugggestions about what may cause this?

Hi Ya flound,

It seems like you may have clogged or weak pump and it can not pump the water with enough power to reach the tower an spray out.

How old is this dishwasher?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
The dishwasher is 8 - 10 years old
Expert:  built1950 replied 8 years ago.
This can happen after 10 years on occasion.
you may need to have a hands on tech remove the dishwasher and check the pump for power and bad impellers. Unfortunetly this is not usually a home handy persons repair.
I would recommend a hands on tech under these circumstances.
