Question and Answers

Q:

detergent or DWU4910AAX Maytag Maytag dishwasher

A:

Thank you for choosing Sears Parts Direct. I can certainly understand how frustrating it can be when your dispenser door is not opening on your Dishwasher. I did look into the model number you have provided and I have found information that will assist you.
Most dishwasher detergent dispensers on most brand dishwashers today use wax motors.
wax motors don’t give a lot of trouble so before considering the wax motor; check all mechanical linkages and springs. Wax motors are basically the same but depending on the motor the ohms across the motor varies. GE wax motors are 1200-2800 ohms and a lot of Whirlpool wax motors are 600-1800 ohms. The best thing is to refer to the mini manual provided with the dishwasher. If you don’t have a mini manual, I suggest checking ohms with your meter set to the highest setting and if it reads open replace it. If it doesn’t, assume it is good but the only way to know for sure is to monitor the voltage coming to the motor. If it gets voltage but will not move, the motor is bad. If it doesn’t get voltage the control is bad. 
Now test for continuity using your multimeter. Set it to the x 1 ohms setting. Take each of the meter's probes and touch them to one terminal each. If you receive a reading of infinity, you should replace the motor.

Let me know if this helps.

Thank you for choosing Sears parts direct. Have a great day.
