Hello:
I'm hoping someone can help in regards to my Maytag MDB8959SFZ4 Dishwasher. Recently, we noticed that our dishwasher stopped adding water during the wash cycle (i.e. the dish cleaning pop is sitting at the bottom of the dish washer). It gives the impression that it is running and even performs the heat/dry cycle. Any ideas? Thanks again!

Hi,

Power tested to the fill valve when the d/w is suppose to be filling and no fill = new fill valve time.
No power tested to the fill valve when the d/w is suppose to be filling and we look elsewhere.

Hello Jeff:
Thanks for the response. Fortunately, it looks like I fixed my dishwasher. After poking around on the inside, there was a gray plastic knife lodged underneath the floater inside the dishwasher. It was really hard to see due to the color - embarrassing!!
