Hi
The issue seems to be with the float switch assembly (part#27) that is bad and should be replaced. Please check this diagram....part#27,30, 31 is what you have to check. Your float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills your dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with your dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use your voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If your switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.
Daniel

The control board seems a good candidate for replacement, especially in view of the jumping around.

First step is similar to a computer. Reboot. Turn off your dishwasher at the breaker box. Hopefully your electrician designated a separate breaker for your dishwasher, otherwise whatever else is on that breaker will be off. Shut the breaker off; wait 10-15 minutes; turn breaker back on. This will resolve many issues and is the first step to try.

Shut the dishwasher off at the breaker. then restart it. See if that clears the board.you may have put the machine into a control lock out. Look for that button. press and hold it for 3 seconds. see if that doesn't clear the board.

Try pulling out maximum distance and then lift up at the front and then slide toward you.

Most likely the control panel is defective.

The Maytag spray arms always get clogged and stop spinning. There is no easy way to remove the food matter from the inside of the spray arm after it gets pretty filled....UNTIL NOW...Drill a 1/4" hole on each end of the spray arm on the top. This method works for either spray arm, but be careful to leave at least 1/8" of distance from the two small holes that spray out water, when you drill the hole. Then using a Dremel tapered stone grinding bit enlarge the hole to 5/16" to accommodate a stainless steel 5/16" plug with the inside hex head. Also use the fine thread, not the course thread, as it will screw more securely onto the thin stainless gage arm and will last. Grind to enlarge the hole a little at a time to make sure your plugs thread into the arm snugly. I have been using our modified arms on our Maytag for over a year and we now have consistently sparkling, clean dishes. We run the washer twice per day and clean out the arms at least once per week which takes only two or three minutes.

Look at drain lines under sink, if you have PVC put a bucket or large plastic pan under and remove all the drain lines and inspect them. Look at air gap or ensure drain line highest point is just under the bottom of counter top,. look at pump in dw to ensure is is working.

I have an old GE that did the same thing, if I don't use it enough it will do the same thing. The hum is from the electric motor in the bottom trying to rotate. I don't know your machine but I assume they are all made closely the same. Remove the bottom cover. You should see the back of the motor and it will probably have some slots in the rear cover. Close the door and try to start it while looking through the rear slots. I saw mine turn like an 1/8 inch and stop. The first time it did this, I unplugged a connector feeding the motor, tried to start it to make sure it didn't do anything and then with a long thin screwdriver went to the slots to help turn the motor. The second time I discovered on the right side of the motor housing there was a small opening towards the front of the motor (rear of dishwasher) I was able to get my fingers in there and turn the motor a few times by hand, plug the connector back in and the dishwasher started right up. Seems like the engineers knew this could be a problem and left an access point for us (or dishwasher repairmen to use and charge us $80 or something)
