Customer Question
I have a maytag...

I have a maytag mdb600awb dishwasher. When pressing start it lights up as usual, fills with water, and you can hear some noises (likely heating element) then all lights on the display go off. I replaced the door latch and striker, still have the same issue. Found a "field test" diagnostic and ran it. After a couple of minutes it appears to be hung up with the "normal wash and clean" lights blinking at the same time. Help!!!

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

Between 18 and 22 years

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes if possible

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

The door latch was broken for awhile. used duct tape to hold it in place. Continued to work for a few years. Recently it started not completing a wash cycle. Dishes would still come clean, but it was only running about a half cycle.

The dishwasher shutting off means that the control board is overloading. Now this could be do to the board being bad, or it could be do to the pump drawing too much power. You'll need to flip the breaker off to the dishwasher and remove the kick panel below the door. Then unplug the wire harness going to the motor and re-apply power at the breaker. Run a cycle and if the dishwasher runs but it just doesn't spray water and such, the motor needs to be replaced. If it still shuts off even without the motor connected, the control board inside the door would need to be replaced. The fact that the normal and clean lights are blinking leads me to believe it's a board issue but you can flip the breaker off and see if that resets. If you need a new board, it's part number 99003160 and it costs about $100.
