Default Maytag dishwasher drain solenoid problem
Model Number: pdb2430awx   Brand: Maytag   Age: 1 - 5 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My dishwasher quit draining. I found the silver cylinder with the clip at one end had fallen onto the floor. This cylinder obviously goes into the hole in the drain solenoid and the clip attaches to the plastic 'arm' to move it in and out of the solenoid. The problem is when I re-attached it and tried to put it into the hole, it barely reaches the solenoid and falls to the floor. Am I missing a part?

Try to find out what is missing by looking at this break down diagram.

Here are the break down diagrams for the Maytag dishwasher Model PDB2430AWX

Default Check the lifter

I was just having the same problem on the same model. I suspected that something had broken and was allowing the solenoid plunger to overtravel. I used the exploded diagram from the link that Gene offered to figure out how to remove the spray arm and basin cover. I finally discovered that the lifter arm that opens and closes the drain was cracked and the c-clip on the end of the shaft had fallen off. This was allowing the shaft to overrotate and pull the solenoid plunger out of the coil. I just ordered a new lifter ($3) and hopefully will only be hand washing dishes for a couple more days.
