how to reset change cycles on maytag dishwasher mdb5100aww

The Maytag MDB5100AWW dishwasher doesn't have a built-in feature to reset or change cycles like some modern dishwashers. Instead, it relies on the user to select the desired cycle before each wash. To change the cycle on the MDB5100AWW dishwasher, follow these steps: 1. Open the Door: Gently pull down the dishwasher door to open it. 2. Check the Cycle Selector: Look for the cycle selector knob on the dishwasher's control panel. It is usually located on the front panel of the dishwasher's door or on the top edge of the door when it's open. 3. Rotate the Knob: Turn the cycle selector knob to the desired wash cycle. Common cycles may include "Normal," "Heavy Duty," "Light," "Quick Wash," "Pots & Pans," or others, depending on the model. 4. Start the Dishwasher: Close the dishwasher door securely and press the "Start" or "On" button to begin the selected cycle. 5. Monitor the Cycle: The dishwasher will now run the chosen cycle. You can monitor the progress through the indicator lights or display on the control panel, depending on the dishwasher's design. 6. Cancel or Change Mid-Cycle (Optional): Some dishwashers may allow you to cancel or change the cycle mid-cycle. To do this, press the "Cancel" or "Pause" button, wait for the dishwasher to stop, and then select a new cycle by rotating the cycle selector knob. Press the "Start" button again to initiate the new cycle. Remember that if you want to change the cycle for each wash, you'll need to follow these steps before starting a new load. The MDB5100AWW doesn't have a memory function to retain the last used cycle, so it starts fresh with each new wash cycle selection.
