SOURCE: STOPS RUNNING IN MID-CYCLE

Try placing something like a chair with books or heavy objects on it in front of the door. Tip it with objects under the front legs and place objects on its seat until the pressure closes the door and the dishwasher starts. Put additional objects on the seat to insure vibration doesn't make the door pop open. If the cycle completes, the problem is probably the door switch. If not, the problem may be with the timer switch. If it's the timer switch the dishwasher will probably stop at the same position each time.

SOURCE: dishwasher won't stop when door is opened mid-cycle

Hello,
Welcome

You need a new door latch mechanism.
It is faulty and not doing it's job of over riding when the door is opened
Please remember to leave a solved rating before leaving

Model MDB7749AWB. Why does it stop mid-cycle?


Defective washer control board is the most common fault.

Stops mid cycle and resumes after I push on the door handle


Rather than a problem with the latch sensor it just might be that something is preventing the door from fully closing properly. Check that there are no obstructions stuck on the door/frame seals and that the seals are in good order. Perished seals can prevent the door from closing evenly and this may cause the problems you are experiencing. Also check that the door itself is not warped or out of alignment, this will also cause such problems.

My maytag dishwasher will run for a short then stop running, I'll push on the door the machine will run again then will stop again


your door is not staying latched.. imagine if it did stay running and the door came completely open, what a mess that would be. so there are safety switches that help stop the washing if the door opens. not too sure how to fix your exact washer.. but the problem is the door not staying closed. maybe you can jamm the door shut while it is running? its not the best answer, but probably the most free way to fix it

Asko 1385: 13 year old dishwasher stops during cycle. If you push on the middle of the door it starts again. It is like the latch is not working properly but by all appearances the latch works fine....


when you latch the door it closes the circuit.
you may have to open the casing of the door to access the switch. it may be stuck or defective.

Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher won't start


I had a similar problem. Turn off the power to the dishwasher. Open the door and remove the screws on the back that holds the door together. Now, locate the black control module and remove the cover. Look down at the bottom left of the control module and you should see a ribbon cable. This is the cable that connects the door keypad to the control module. Unplug the ribbon cable and the plug it back in. On my unit the ribbon cable was not making good contact and only half of the keypad was operational,

Hope This Helps !!
