Maytag Dishwasher Model # MDB3000AWX Detergent Door Latch

2 posts in this topic

Maytag Dishwasher Model # MDB3000AWX detergent door latch won't open during cycle. I have cleaned the detergent door gasket of any detergent residue but door won't open without manually opening the detergent door latch. The opening spring works when I manually open the detergent door latch.

Maytag's website does not have any online manuals for this particular model.

Any advice?

Thank You

You'll have to remove the outer door panel and run the dishwasher like this with your meter hooked up to the door latch wax motor. You're looking to see if the door latch is getting the 120v it needs from the timer (at pin 27) to open the detergent door. If not, then the timer is bad. If so, then you need a new wax motor.
