Customer Question
Our Maytag dishwasher does...

Our Maytag dishwasher does not complete the cydle. The light does not come on when finished. There is water in the bottow of the washer.

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

Model MDB-5?

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

Right now yes if possible

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

It has done it before and I repushed to start dishwasher and it did clean and dry. But now it will not. I have checked the garbage disposal and tried to make sure the drain (in the sinks) was free.
