My Maytag Quite series 300 dishwasher comes on but when it goes to wash it starts to hum and will not start
I have an old GE that did the same thing, if I don't use it enough it will do the same thing. The hum is from the electric motor in the bottom trying to rotate. I don't know your machine but I assume they are all made closely the same. Remove the bottom cover. You should see the back of the motor and it will probably have some slots in the rear cover. Close the door and try to start it while looking through the rear slots. I saw mine turn like an 1/8 inch and stop. The first time it did this, I unplugged a connector feeding the motor, tried to start it to make sure it didn't do anything and then with a long thin screwdriver went to the slots to help turn the motor. The second time I discovered on the right side of the motor housing there was a small opening towards the front of the motor (rear of dishwasher) I was able to get my fingers in there and turn the motor a few times by hand, plug the connector back in and the dishwasher started right up. Seems like the engineers knew this could be a problem and left an access point for us (or dishwasher repairmen to use and charge us $80 or something)
