I have a Maytag dishwasher model MDB7100AWB that does not wash or drain.

The dishwasher will start, fill & run through the complete cycle but no washing or drain.

There are no "motor sounds" while in the wash or drain cycles so I'm assuming a bad pump.

I've been working away from home 12/6's so I have 1 day per week at home so I didn't have time to pull the unit out & do some "prodding" with my volt meter.

Here's my question that maybe one of experts experience may be able to help me with a "coin flip" decision.

Are the odds high for having a bad pump & order it to hopefully install this weekend? (I do have a few extra days due to Thanksgiving holiday)  

OR

does your experience say do some more trouble shooting, odds are possibly a different faulty (cheaper?) component?  

I'm not looking for an exact diagnosis, maybe just a little help with my "coin flip"  

My biggest dilemma at the moment is that 'you know who' want's her dishwasher fixed or a new one sooner rather than later.

This is the 1st problem we've had with this dishwasher. Beyond this, it's been great.

Thanks for the great forum & the help of all you experts who take the time to help an appliance novice live me.

See if you're getting power to the motor:  120vac Blue to Gray during washer, Blue to Red during drain.  

 

If you're getting voltage to the motor but the motor ain't running, well, you know the name o' dat tune:  http://www.repaircli...6915416/1469473

A belated thanks to you Mr. Samurai for your response.

Problem solved... kind of.

Got the ole bat a new dishwasher for Christmas.

For the record I wasn't getting power to the motor.

Looks like motor power comes off the circuit board in the door & looked like a pretty simple circuit board.

Being an old-timer electronic tech it probably wouldn't be to difficult to map out the circuit board but the main obstacle to doing that is time.

Now I need to find something fun to do with the motor.
