Water not creating enough pressure to make arms turn and spray. Whats probable cause?
Answer Hello James. You will need to check and make sure the dishwasher is bringing in enough water. If it is not, the arms will not work properly. If it is bringing in enough water, you will need to check the impeller assembly 99002659 and make sure it is not clogged or broken. Also make sure the motor shaft is not stripped out. Hope this helps.

My dishwasher makes a loud noise when operating at times. Could this be the motor? How do you take the door off this model and where is the motor located?
Answer Hello Don,
There is most likely debris in the area of the pump where the chopper blade is located. The pump will have to be disassembled to see if this is the case or not. This is the only thing that can cause the issue unless the outlet W10296525 has separated. The door will not have to be removed and the motor is under the pump assembly.
After my dishwasher fills, the unit stops and does nothing else. No motor sound, no spinning of spray arms, nothing until I hit cancel. Then it drains. Serial #13034334AV. Its a Maytag Quiet Series 100.
Answer Hello Will,
This sounds like you either have a bad winding in the motor or a bad control. Disconnect the unit from the power supply for the first tests you need to make. This is fairly easy to pin down. Remove the kick panel and unplug the motor. Using your test meter set to resistance, test from the terminal the green wire connected to to the other three terminals. None of these should read open or zero. There should be a resistance reading there, but through 45 minutes of researching I could not locate the exact resistance of the motor windings. If any of the readings are zero or open, the motor is bad. If you get a resistance reading on all three, you need to go to the next test.
The next test is for voltage. First, remember to reestablish thew power supply. Fill the unit with water so if it were working properly the motor would start. Now with your test meter set to ac voltage, test from ground to the blue wire. This is the power supply from the control board. If there is voltage there, the start capacitor or the wiring harness have an issue. If there is no voltage from ground to the blue wire, the control board has failed.
I suspect I have a bad motor but want to confirm it's not a control issue. I'm getting power to the motor in 3-5 second pulses after tub fills. What pins on the motor are power and which are control?
Answer Hi James. If you remove the lower kick panel and get the tech. sheet, you will be able to put the unit in a field service test. Then this will allow the controls to give a fault code that pinpoints a circuit if it has issues. It also will tell you the information of the motor windings to ohm out and take voltage test from the board or each device if needed. It should also tell you which wire is a carrier wire to sense the tach. circuit if your model has one. The control board is part # 99003160. The wash motor is part # 6-919922. Motor seal part # 6-917025.The control panel is part # 6-917727. Thank You.
When the pump runs it makes a loud sound like a bearing is going out. Does the motor need to be replaced or can a bearing be changed out on the pump?
Answer David, If you're sure the noise is from the motor bearings, you'll need to repalce the assembly 6-919922, the bearings can't be replaced in the field. You should probably dismantle the upper portion of the wash pump and check for debris in the impeller assemblies first. Heres some help." 1. Disconnect power to the machine. 2. Remove racks. 3. Remove Wash Manifold 4. Loosen Wash Arm Hub and Pivot.
5. Remove Spray Arm. 6. Remove 3 Torx™ screws securing Filter Guard. 7. Entire Wash Motor Assembly can be lifted from Tub
for further disassembly. 8. Remove and replace Pump Gasket if necessary. 9. Disconnect wiring harness from Wash Motor
Assembly. 10. Remove 6 Torx™ screws securing Discharge Housing. 11. Remove Torx™ screw securing Wash Impeller . See
bottom side of motor for access hole to lock motor rotation while removing Torx™ screw. Insert screw driver tip into access hole while removing screw. 12. Lift off Filter/Flowplate Assembly to access Chopper Plate. 13. Remove 3 Torx™ screws to remove Chopper Plate.
14. Lift off Chopper 15. Remove Chopper Sleeve by using Impeller as a wrench. Lock motor rotation using the access hole provided in back of motor. 16. Lift off Seal Seat Assembly." Good Luck and Thanks
