It’s obviously easiest to just open up your Maytag dishwasher manual to troubleshoot your system. This doesn’t always solve
the problem though. It gives the most basic of tips to fix issues, but these tips aren’t really tricks and aren’t always useful.
When your Maytag dishwasher’s touch-pad isn’t working right, you may automatically think to unplug it in order to reset it.
However, this doesn’t always solve the problem. In fact, more times than not this does nothing to actually fix the problem. In a
case where there’s a short inside, you may have buttons that don’t do what they should when you press them. Multiple keys
may light up at once, or you may not be able to use the buttons at all sometimes. In these cases, you may want to turn off the
breaker and remove the door. You might see brown stains. Begin by removing the plastic coating on the wiring if it turned
brown. Once you do so, you’ll reveal silver wires. You can’t leave them like this because of the water that’s constantly going
through a Maytag dishwasher. You should use electrical tape and wrap the wires to protect them. A Magic Eraser may be used
to take off small amounts of corrosion and so can de-naturalized alcohol, so stripping the wire and wrapping it won’t be
necessary. After you turn it back on, this should repair the problem. Sometimes, just taking off the face of the keypad and
pressing all of the buttons is enough to correct the problem.
Cleaning the dishwasher can solve a great deal of problems such as the Maytag dishwasher not draining or it not getting dishes
clean enough. With a sponge, some detergent and a toothbrush, you can fix many problems with your dishwasher. Clean
everything from the drain and drain pump to the spray arm and the float switch.
You can prevent a problem by taking care of the device as recommended by the Maytag dishwasher manual. Do all the routine
maintenance. Always make sure you load the dishwasher properly. Make sure you regularly inspect it for damage. The sooner
you notice a problem, the sooner you can fix it to prevent an even more serious issue.
These tips will help your dishwasher to last longer. They will help to increase the lifespan of your appliance and may even help
to correct an issue after it has already occurred.
