Question and Answers

Q:

Why isn't the lid on my Maytag dishwasher model PDB3600AWE opening during the cycle?

A:

Why isn't the lid on my Maytag dishwasher model PDB3600AWE opening during the cycle?

The dispenser cup lid is actuated by a duel wax motor assembly when voltage is supplied by the electronic control board. The dual wax motor heats up and the plunger should slowly extend to trip the latch. The dual wax motor will need to be tested for continuity with a volt/ohm meter. The wax motor should have a resistance reading of 600-1800 ohms of resistance. If the wax motor is OK, voltage must be verified at the wax motor. Wax motor location

The failure could also be:

  • Control board

  • Solenoid/Dispenser assembly

  • Loose wiring connection

If you do not feel comfortable diagnosing your appliance I recommend scheduling service at 1-800-424-2047.
