Maytag Dishwasher Troubleshooting
If you're looking for help fixing your Maytag Dishwasher, look no further! Our comprehensive Maytag Dishwasher Troubleshooting guide will explain common issues, provide tips, and show you how to read your model's error codes.
Maytag Dishwasher Not Starting or Not Operating
There are several reasons why your Maytag dishwasher not starting or not operating:
control lock is on
dishwasher is in sleep mode
delayed wash option is selected
door is not completely closed and latched
water supply is not turned on
the power needs to be cycled to reset the dishwasher
Has a delay wash option been selected?
A delay wash option runs the dishwasher at a later time or during off-peak electrical hours. If the delay wash has been selected, the dishwasher will not run until the delay time is reached.
To Turn Off the Delay Wash Feature:
Press CANCEL/DRAIN to cancel the delay.
Press START/RESUME to start the cycle.
Is the door completely closed and latched?
Make sure that the door is completely closed and latched. A lower dish rack that is installed backward can also cause the door to not latch properly.
Is the water supply turned on to the dishwasher?
Make sure the dishwasher water supply is turned on. See installation instructions for your model if you are unsure how to check this.
How to reset the dishwasher:
Much like a computer, resetting the dishwasher control can sometimes solve the issues you are experiencing. To reset the dishwasher control panel, it needs to be disconnected from the power source for one minute. If your dishwasher is plugged into an outlet, simply unplug the unit for one minute and then plug the unit back in. If the dishwasher is hard wired to the power supply, turn the breaker off at the home electrical panel that powers the dishwasher for one minute and then turn the breaker back on.

Works great, quiet, cleans better than the others in my opinion, have had many others and they never impressed me like this brand does! I think this one gives you your money's worth and you don't have to look no further for a dishwasher again, and is top quality and hardly breaks down as well.
Convenience, small, clean while you doing other jobs, it cleans while you sleeping, it's not loud, not expensive, comes in different sizes and colors, it's another helping hand, you will love it, it's worth the money.
We love our Maytag Dishwasher! It's very durable, doesn't use a lot of water and really gets our dishes exceptionally clean. The best part is that it sterilizes on the final cycle! We've long trusted any Maytag appliance in our families for generations.
This Maytag dishwasher is beautiful inside and outside. I love that the controls are hidden. It cleans dishes very well. It has a large capacity for dishes, a rack for glasses/mugs, a small rack for cooking utensils, and a container for silverware. It is so quiet you hardly know it is working. I would highly recommend it.
We had a Whirlpool dishwasher for 24 years, and when it was time to purchase a new one, I did a lot of research before choosing our Maytag. Reviews by other consumers who had purchased dishwashers was very helpful in making our decision, and we have had no problems in the almost 18 months that we have had this dishwasher. It is very quiet. It washes and dries the dishes with no streaks, although I wash off the dishes before loading them. It provides 5 cycles and 4 options and lights blink, when the washing and drying cycles are complete. I would recommend the Maytag, Model #MDB4949SHBO wholeheartedly.
