    Default Maytag Quiet Series 300 won't start wash cycle, leaks

    Model Number: MDB7600AWS
    Brand: Maytag
    Age: 6-10 years

    Hi. I may have several issues stemming from an incident last night. My wife closed the bottom rack and the knob of a glass lid of a deep fry pan caught on the side of the dishwasher. It was tempered and shatter into thousands of tiny pieces. I cleaned out all the glass the best I could. We ran a load last night and aside from minimal grinding noises the load finished but the dishes weren't quite clean. Now, tonight it's a different story. When I start the wash cycle it sounds like it is starting up but the water never really kicks in. The bottom of the dishwasher fills to just below the float and the heating element gets hot but that's it. The water also leaks now from what appears to be the front right of the dishwasher below the kick/access panel. The float is free and clear of any obstructions and moves freely with a slight "click" when I move it up and down. Any suggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you - Peter

    OK, so what you're saying is, the water fills OK but the motor doesn't "kick in". Is that correct? If so, there may be glass caught in one of the impellers or stuck under one of them keeping the motor from turning on. You'll have to take it apart, through the inside of the machine and see what's going on there.

    You'll need to remove the lower panel and take a look see at where the water is coming from. I have a feeling it's probably related to the glass and motor. Under the drain impeller is the motor pump seal. The glass has most likely cut the seal. You'll be able to tell when you remove the lower panel. Look for water on the top of the motor.

    Well Rick, I think the seal kit did the trick. I now have water and drainage and no apparent leaks. The instructions that came with the seal kit were a bit lacking but I figured it out. Thank you again for your quick reply and suggestions and for saving me a bill I can't afford right now. /Peter
