SOURCE: our built-in maytag dishwasher is not cleaning dishes very well,

After you go out and buy/use a brand name detergent powder like Electrosol or Cascade (using less than the full dispenser cup each time), if problems continue, then have the heating element checked.
Very common for a film/food residue to remain when a dishwasher's heating element fails, even if the water heater temp is set to 120 degrees.
Good Luck!

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 100, Model # MDB5600AWS, built

We also have a Quiet series 100 and had the same problem, the dishes always came out dingy or with food all over them. My washer is about 5 years old and worked well for about 4 of them but the last year has been doing a poorer and poorer job washing the dishes. I finally broke down and removed the racks and all of the plastic parts from the inside of the washer. Doing this revealed that the groves in the under side of most of the plastic parts was clogged with food and debris. After a good scrubbing with water and a brush then reassembly it worked like a new washer again, cleaning the dishes very well and the best part is it saved us about $700.00 for another washer.

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get their new product. It filters the water and takes out the hard minerals that cause spots and clog dishwashers. It is very affordable and has a money back guarantee.

Dishes not coming out clean


Hello

There are some things you can try, however, if your Maytag dishwasher is not getting your dishes as clean as you would like. Maytag recommends several processes for fixing this issue with your dishwasher.


Do not run your Maytag dishwasher while hot water is being used in other parts of your home, such as washing clothes or showering. Hot water is needed for your Maytag dishwasher to properly clean dishes.


Run water in the sink in your kitchen until it gets very hot. Then, turn on your Maytag dishwasher. This will ensure that the water cleaning your dishes is the hottest possible temperature.


Clean your Maytag dishwasher to improve the cleaning results for dishes. Run your dishwasher on a short wash cycle and wait for it to fill up with water. Stop the cycle and add about 1/3 of a cup of rust remover to the dishwasher and finish the cycle. Run your Maytag dishwasher through one normal cycle with regular detergent to finish the cleaning process.


Check your detergent. Old detergent or those that have been exposed to moisture can be clumpy. This detergent will not clean your dishes as well when loaded into your Maytag dishwasher. Purchase fresh detergent.


Use extra detergent when washing dishes that have a lot of built-up grease or food particles. The extra amount of detergent is needed to get your dishes clean. Choose a long cleaning cycle to clean these dishes.


Fill your Maytag dishwasher properly. Dishes should not be stacked on top of each other or excessively crammed into your dishwasher. This will keep the dishwasher from adequately cleaning all areas of your dishes and from rinsing them thoroughly.

My Maytag dishwasher (MDB955AWS) will not drain ans is not cleaning the dishes properly.


Hi


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.

Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

msbcox -- Check for residue in the strainer under the lower washbar. Remove the lower dish rack. Strainer is under washbar. Sounds like it is not draining properly. Write back if you need more help. -- SWT

Residue and small particles left in upper rack dishes and glasses. maytag mbh940aww dishwasher.Is there a filter to clean?


Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

Yes there will also be a filter in the base of the unit to clean. This needs to be done regularly to avoid food getting into the working parts of the unit.

Dishes still dirty after wash cycle


It would be real helpful to have you provide the manufacterer and model number to get more specific with solution.
-Have you changes dishwasher soap powder recently? Buy a box of Electrosol or Cascade and see what happens. The ultracheep versions actually have caused cleaning problems, especilly in water-conserving dishwashers.
-Under the lower rack is the sump area with a filter that can be removed, usaully by removing several screws. Pull that filter, rinse is as best you can. Inspect under where the filter was and remove all debris. Watch out for broken glass that is found in most well used diswashers, it is hard to see and sharp! Reasemble the filter.
-If problems continue and if this diswasher is several years old, plan on getting the wash pump motor replaced (or replace the diswasher with a name brand, Energy Star model.) Good Luck!
Please update me with what you found. OK?
