Resolved Question:

Have just bought a second hand dishwasher Model MSE760 and need either a manual or explain why no matter what program I try it fills with water then does nothing else and when I open the door the first two program lights (Intensive and Strong)are flashing.

Can anyone tell me why?

Hi Colin,
sorry to hear that. Can you get the machine to drain?
or will it drain on its own?
Please let me know anything else you can about this problem.
Thank you

Hi the machine will not drain
Pipe work is all new including trap
We have no manual because it is second hand

If you dont open the door, after it fills, what does the display show?

Can't tell as the display is on the top edge of the door and not visable when it's closed

Thanks Colin, after it fills wait a bit and listen very carefully, do you hear any humming sound?
Thank you

No after it fills there is no further noise and when you open the door again the two program lights mentioned above are flashing!

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.
Thanks Colin, just needed to be sure. This is a bad circulation pump.
When they fail the machine will never go any further as the machine can sense that the wash cycle never completes, it your case it doesn't even begin.
Its easy enough to replace with just a few basic hand tools and I will help you make that swap.
Are you in the UK or the US?
I can help you find the best place to get the pump.
I will stick with you until this is fixed but since this may take some time, if you will rate my service in a positive fashion thus far before you close this page, the system will allow me to schedule free follow ups with you and also ensure your question will NOT close or time out;-)

Thank you Colin for your patience ;-)

I'm in the UK, but even the Maytag site doesn't recognise the model number! So not sure where to go will try to take it back to the place where I bought it

Expert:  Michael replied 3 years ago.

Hi Colin make sure you copied it correctly,
Maytag should know if it is correct ;-)
Please rate kindly.
And have a great weekend Colin!
