mdb6701awb dishwasher has been working great until door latch broke and the tabs on the back of the control panel that hold the latch are broke too. i replaced only the door latch. the dishwasher will start, sounds like water is going in and stops after about 1 minute and powers down.
Answer Candlemaker, Replacing the control panel 6-919822 should solve both your issues. the broken retainers could allow the door latch to shift and release the switch plunger. The dishwasher "shutting down" during the cycle could also be due to a faulty circuit in the key pad circuit(s) causing the control board to "overload" and shut down.
I have a new latch assembly for mdb7601aws maytag dishwasher. Can I take the handle off the old assembly and put on the new one? The latch assembly is a w10275768
Answer Hello John. Yes, you can do this but it is very hard to do. If the handle breaks, you will need to order another one. There is no tricks to make it any easier when snapping the handle onto the pins.
Door will not close tight enough for disherwasher to start..?.
Answer Marge, Check and make sure there's nothing behind the racks and the water tube(up the back of the tub) hasn't gotten dislodged, check that there's nothing holding the racks and keeping the door from closing and latching properly.
