Check whether the pump runs when you start a new cycle as this is the default behaviour for most machines to ensure that they are empty before starting the wash. If the pump runs then it likely that the filter in the bottom of the machine requires cleaning.

1. Check the filter first - there may be food debris blocking the filter or pieces of broken glass. Remove the filter from the base of the appliance and check if it is blocked. Clear any blockages or debris. Please note - before you do anything, you must ensure that you turn the dishwasher off at the mains to prevent any accidents.

2. Then check the drain hose - the drain hose runs under the sink and comes out of the back of the dishwasher. This hose can become blocked - if it is, this could stop the waste water from draining away. If your drain hose damaged or bent, you can buy a replacement hose and fit it very easily.
Also, is the drain hose fitted in the correct position?

3. The pump itself is faulty - if your dishwasher is making an odd sound it may be the pump, it is usually worth calling an engineer and replacing this.

I hope this is useful and helpful. Good luck!

I've been learning some magic tricks before and it was really fun to do that certain thing. While doing some writing stuff can someone do my dissertation, I get a lot of ideas about magic that I have learned from previous days.

Hi, W/D here.

Your panel may be able to be changed. Look at the top of your panel for a trim piece held in place with screws.. Remove the screws and try to slide your panel front up and out. If it will come out like this, you can change your color very easily. In fact, some dishwashers came with 2 panels with each side painted a different color (harvest gold or avocado green anyone?). If your panel will not come apart, all is not lost....
I have seen panel covers available on EBay, in the dishwasher section. Some are sheetmetal and some were like sticky backed foil. If you're going stainless, this might be the route to take.
If you are artistic, you can mask and paint the panel with either a spray enamel, or one of the newer plastic paints. Not crafty? remove the door and take to an auto painter. I know for a fact that most of them will paint a refrigerator (ahem), so a dishwasher can be done as well.
Hope that this at least sparked a few ideas! Best regards, --W/D--

It is not the dishwasher. The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

The drain plug is on the rear of the unit, just above floor level. You can either drain it into a low sided pan that can hold a least a quart of water. Or roll it to an area, where you can allow it to just drain. If you drain it in place into a pan, be sure to turn the unit OFF & unplug it, before draining the water.
If you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, you can get one online from Sears Parts Direct.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Just bought a 4 year old maytag 300 quiet series and hooked it up all front buttons light up when you push what you want but will not fill with water. Goes to cycle where water should be spraying around...

Sounds like an internal timer malfunction.
Maytag Customer Service: 1 (800) 344-1274 U.S.
Try to find your model # and serial number if not out of warranty before called.
It sounds as if your machine needs to be inspected by a service repair agent in your area. Maytag can lead you to an authorized local repair man.

Our year old Maytag Dishwasher...Legacy Series...won't drain, which means it won't run another load

If you have a silver air gap on your counter top start there. It will pull off or turn off, make sure it is clean. Check your drain line to the garbage disposal, All ways run the water near your DW until it is hot. Most people do not do this and it amounts to 85 % Of my calls. Hope this helps.

Maytag legacy series tub wont fill

Your drain hose is too low or there is no air gap where the hose enters the drain line.
This causes the water to siphon out as it fills.

Maytag legacy series washer not holding water

Same problem here. But according to Maytag Service, the draining pipe may be too deep inside the draining tube on the wall, thus creating a siphon effect and not allowing the tub to fill.
Their suggestion is to ckeck the pipe and make sure no more than 6-8 inches are inside the draining pipe. This should take care of the suction. We'll see, Imma do that when I get home.
