You definitely have to have a clean......float clean from all debris...it is very typical for the float to cause leaking problems ..as it is an overflow switch....also drying agents...that are used...especially if any is spilled inside will foam up and cause an overflow as well as liquid detergents that are not specified by the maker of your DW....these foam also....(if to much is used)...but the float will not push down on the switch if it is completely free from gunk.
I hope this helps.....good luck...thanks for rating my effort....the Fang.

How do i determine if my Maytag dishwasher needs a new control panel or control board


Remove the cover on the inner side of the door and expose the backside of the panel and control board wiring. Look at the wiring and see if you see a burned cable. That may point you to where the problem is. I have seen burned wiring in that location, especially leading to the control panel itself having burned ribbon cable.

Water will not fill the dishwasher, it runs but it will not fill with water...is the water inlet plugged?


Hello there

The most common causes of this problem are a defective water inlet valve or a stuck float switch. The float switch sits under the dish racks and sends a shut-off signal to the dishwasher when the water level is high enough. Make sure you only use a Maytag-compatible replacement if you have to change out your dishwasher's float switch or water inlet valve.
Difficulty: Moderate Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Owner's manual
  • Screwdriver
  • Scrub brush
  • Replacement parts (if necessary)

  1. 1 Shut off power to the dishwasher from the home's circuit breaker box. Remove the lower rack from the inside of the dishwasher.
  2. 2 Check the water inlet valve to see if it clogged or broken. Replace the valve if you notice any problems and test the dishwasher again. If it still does not fill, proceed to Step Three to troubleshoot the float switch.
  3. 3 Consult your owner's manual to find the location of the float assembly. Remove the cover, if applicable to your dishwasher. There may be retaining screws holding the cover in place or it may just snap off.
  4. 4 Hold both sides of the float while you raise and lower it several times. The float should move freely without binding or catching on anything. Disconnect and use a scrub brush to clean the float if you feel any resistance.
  5. 5 Reattach the float and test its movement again. If it is still not moving properly, replace the float.
  6. 6 Replace the lower rack of the dishwasher and turn the breaker switch back on.

Float does not shut off the water when dishwasher is being filled. IWater keeps running, fills up and runs out of the front of the dishwasher. Also it will not pump the water out at end of cycle.


Check the float to make sure it moves freely up and down, and it should click when it moves. Remove float and clean around the float tube-you may need to do this from below, through the access panel. Use white vinegar to scrub the float and shaft assembly. Turn on the dishwasher to see if this fixed the problem.

If not, it may be the float switch. If you are handy with electrical repairs, turn off the power to the dishwasher, pull the dishwasher from the wall and remove the back. Remove the wires from the terminals on the float switch-use masking tape to identify to identify terminals,noteing which belongs where.Remove old switch and replace with the new float switch. You will need the serial number, model number and make of your dishwasher to order the new float.

Dishwasher not filling completely


Sounds like the float switch is out of adjustment,(or the retaining plate is loose) The float & switch are located toward the front of the tub.You can access the switch buy removing the lower panel on the front of the washer.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack


I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.

The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.

On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.

When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.

Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

Maytag MDB6650AWW will not fill


My Maytag MDB6650AWW dishwasher would not fill. The lights on the panel were on when I tried the wash cycle. I tested the water valve but no voltage was found during the cycle. I thought it may be the timer/control circuit. I traced the power from the door switch and found no power going to the float switch leg. I found two wires completely cut through (one going to the Water Valve) and three others partially sliced.
