I have a Maytag Dishwasher. Model#MDB5100AWW. It is 18 months old.It has a control panel on the front. The problem is it will not go thru the normal wash cycle.Stay in this cycle. Every place I have looked they say check the timer. I can not find a timer on this machine. I have looked very closely inside the door. Could someone point me in the right direction. Thank You

That model does not have a timer, it is electronically controlled.

There may be a sensor in your model (like to check water temperature. etc.) that has failed or there may be a problem in the electronic control itself.

Electronically controlled models can be difficult to diagnose so if you call a repairman to look at it for you, try to be as specific as you can as to at what point in the cycle it stops.

Did you but it new? If so don't even touch it! Make the place where you bought it from send an Maytag repair person to look at it. The 5100 is an upper line from Maytag and warranty should still cover it. Hope this helps.

That model has a one year labour warranty, parts however are covered for 2 and the electronic control and wash system for 5 years (parts only, customer pays labour).
