I have an older dishwasher also and recently mywife also complained about it not cleaning right... so me being the man I amtried in vain to clean the things... Bought new spray arms online and installedthem in minutes...now the thing works like new... However I have also foundthat if the heating element goes bad then that also can mess things up bad...So I would buy new spray arms, and also check out the heating element to makesure it is working... Here is a tip that will help you with the onlinebuying...
Dishwasher SprayArms not Spinning
you have to get the touch pad replaced. my worked for 11 month, got it replaced (3 weeks to get the part), worked for 1.5 month and broke again out of warranty. time to get a new dishwasher and extended warranty. maytag is total c$%p. Everything is made in Mexico. I think even China makes a better product. WOW did I say that?!?!
Thanks for using FixYa. Please check for the following if your dishwasher is not working--
1. Fuse (blown or tripped). 2. 120 VAC supply wiring connection faulty. Repair or replace wire fasteners at dishwasher junction box. 3. Electronic control board faulty. 4. Motor (inoperative, check resistances). 5. Door switch (open contacts). 6. Door latch not making contact with door switch. 7. Touch pad circuit defective. 8. No indicator lamps illuminate when START or OPTIONS is depressed.

MAYTAG is AWFUL....READ REVIEWS before buying..If I only knew.Another thing Thanksgiving time,all the cooking,company & dishes,I have to hand wash after 3 says of prepeing food.WTF!!!
I am not soo happy at this time.It worked fine after a strugle to get it started & now the next load it's dead as ever.It has the lights lit dim but nothing else will go.I tried everything & cant even read the manuel on it since maytag charges for a viewing of there 5 month old product's manuel. I lost my manuel on mine & refuse to pay to read up to see if there is a reset button.I paid enough for this 5 months ago & it was only installed 4 months new! how's that for crappy appliance not to mention my lemon of a washer i got a few years ago.I see maytag has shittttttttyyyy appliances now when they use to be on top! I's ratehr buy a generic brand for less since it's got more of a warranty to offer.This here buy one or you lose as I & a millioon more..READ the REVIEWS Millioons of us been screwed & this economy who has it to cough up? NOT I !
Have a blessed Thanksgiving everyone ~~ Mine will only get better once I replace my appliances to a more trusting brand & with assurance of a better brand,I dont think I'll have this dealing in a short 4 to 5 month time frame & to mention again on a holiday tons of dishes.I want my money back in triple damages from all this stress
So posting my solution is DON'T BUY MAYTAG
well being you purchased the uint 6 months ago you shoudl still have 6 months of warr left. did you try contacting sears, or any authorized maytag servicer to have a look at for you??? maybe a fan has gone bad, or theres a copper line thats causing a vibration through the unit.
