Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB7600A Jetclean® II Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

It has started sounding really, really loud with a long grinding sound and then like a swishy sound for a short break, then the grinding sound again.

Its like it is grinding in a cycle, does that make sense? It grinds (about 3-5 seconds) and then there is a littel break, then a grind, then a break (about 1-2 seconds). It does it in every cycle except the rinse only cycle. All others it happens until it hits the rinse cycle then it quits. It is really, really loud....any ideas?

    I have had the same problem for the last month or so until it stopped working all together yesterday. I now hit the start button and turns on like it is going to start but then it never starts.

    The grinding noise was very concerning. please advise.

    At 75 minutes remaining (starts at 81 minutes with our settings) it grinds away for a 5 seconds at a time with a few second break repeatedly for ten minutes, then gives up and goes onto 74 minutes and continues! Dishes still come out fine but clearly it didn't do this when new!

Sounds like a piece of broken glass or hard fruit pit stuck in the garburator. Remove the botom rack and disassemble the eniter assembly located below the bottom rack. Keep track of the order of the parts until you reach the stainless steel garburator blade. If you are not mechanicaly inclined, take video of the dissasembley to help you put things back together. You will probably find a foreign object by the time you reach the blade. Continue disassembling the assembly below the garburator to ensure that the drainage ports are not obstructed. Consider re-assembling without the garburator blade to avoid recurring problems. Substitute Garburator blade with routine disassembley and cleaning every 3-6 months. Sadly thats the best way to overcome the failure prone Garburator mechanism. When its time to buy a new D/W, buy one with a filter instead of a garburator. I recommend Miele and recomend against all Whirlpool brands (Maytag, Jennair, KitchenAid, Kenmore, Whirlpool, WhiteWestinghouse, etc.)

When Garburators Jam, you risk overheating that can melt the overpriced circuit board or overheat the motor. Either problem means discarding the dishwasher becasue the repair cost would be too high. The Garburator is a disgusting idea anyway. Instad of allowing food particles to sit at the bttom, the sme particels are minced and sprayed over the dishes that you are trying to clean.

I have a 99 Ford Superduty 7.3 Diesel. It is making a really bad grinding/screeching sound just after it starts and is warming up. It wouldn't ******* off all the way even after the key was turned


indicates that the starter motor is stuck in the ring gear
possibly faulty starter relay or starter solenoid
pull the starter as the pinion over ride clutch is probably damaged ( noise ) and have the start circuit and relay checked
have the starter bench tested for serviceability by an accredited auto electrician

Brakes are making loud grinding noise when slowing down to stop or on an incline


Ok, it could be a few things, 1. bad break caliper. 2. if you have ceramic breaks, it could be a cracked brake pad, and if they are not ceramic they can still be cracked. 3. if you drive a lot then it could be that you need new breaks again.. 4. also have your back breaks checked along with the front ones..
