Admiral DDB1501AWW Dishwasher

I have been over the last three months having my dishes come out with small food particles dried on the dishes. My some & I took the dishwasher apart and cleaned what we could. We also checked the intake water line and took the pump apart. All of it was fine except for the filter material in the inside bottom of the dishwasher was somewhat plugged with minerals. Some of the filter mesh has come undone from the plastic casing. There is no way that I can just replace the mesh due to the way it is made. How do I go about getting another one. It is a rather large piece. of plastic. I wish I had a part name or number but I couldn't find one. Thank you for your help

This worked for us - I hope it works for you. We have had problems with grit on the dishes, especially in glasses or items on the top racks. We tried: Different detergents; Heavy cycle every single load; loading different ways; rinse agents; shopping for a new freakin' machine!
After reading the total lack of satisfaction people had with almost every machine listed, and a very unsatisfactory level of hot water during a shower - I realized the core intake temperature of our water dropped significantly in the fall/winter. I went and used the "high temp wash" on some seriously soiled loads (on heavy cycle). Everything came out clean. I am back to using the normal cycle for everything, but always with the High Temp Wash. I figure the improved performance saves rerunning loads, longer cycles, and frustration - so I am fine with the added electric expense. I always use rinse agent. I use Walmart dish soap.
Good luck!

My dishes keep coming out with small food particles on them. what do i need to do to get this to stop?


If your dishes have small particules of food that is being left on your dishes this could either be due to food still being left inside the chopper area which is located on this diagram at part number 9 http://c.searspartsdirect.com/lis_png/PLDM/M0704047-00008.png click this link if you remove part number 7 and find when you get to the chopper there is no food debris left there then you would look at the drain pump both before and after the pump area and remove the hoses to the pump to assure that there is nothing stuck or clogged in the drain area. You would also remove the drain hose from where it plugs into your disposal or exiting point and assure that nothing is blocking this area as well If you have any further questions message me back Thanks again Rick
p.s soap debris can also cause these small particules on dishes and I find using a product called AFFRESH works excellent in cleaning the inside of the dishwasher from these soap deposits but would need further clarification as to what type of deposits you think these are

Filter needs cleaning. How do I get at the filter?


Dishwasher filters are important to catch food particles and other debris. The dishwasher cleans small portions of food from the dishes, cooking pans and silverware. These particles must go somewhere. The drainage system on the washer may clog if filters are not present. Most Maytag dishwasher models have two types of filters, "Coarse" and "Fine." You should clean the "Coarse" filter after two or three wash loads. The "Fine" filter can wait for a cleaning for about 300 loads or three months.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:

  • Sink sponge
  1. Empty the dishwasher. Remove all dishes including pots, pans and silverware.
  2. Pull the bottom rack out as far as possible. The filters are under the basket on the Maytag dishwashers. It may be convenient to lift the rack out. Typically, if you lift, the wheels leave the track.
  3. Remove the "Coarse" filter. This filter is a small, round knob in the middle of the "Fine" filter. A round knob is around the "Coarse" filter. Hold on to the handle and lift straight up.
  4. Knock the contents of the "Coarse" filter into the garbage can. Run the faucet to remove smaller particles. Wipe the dishwasher filter with the sink sponge if debris is stuck-on. Push back into the filter holder when complete.
  5. Take out the "Fine" filter. Turn the round knob that is around the "Coarse" filter counter-clockwise. Once the knob is loose, pull up. The "Fine" filter will come out of the dishwasher.
  6. Rinse the "Fine" filter with the hot water faucet. Scrub with the sink sponge to remove any stuck-on fragments. Replace the filter into the dishwasher. Push down and turn the knob clockwise to tighten.

Food particles remaining on dishes after cycle is complete.


Hi

While putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams which causes food particles to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets ,be sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

However the other causes for this problem are…

Not enough water entering dishwasher (check level after fill... Should be slightly below bottom wash arm)

Water filling but draining during wash cycle. Check toward end of wash cycle but before drain. See if water level is diminished from start of wash cycle.

New 'water saver' dishwashers are notorious for having smaller water jets, and thus easier to stop-up jets. Check the jets on all wash arms to be sure they are cleared of food particles.

Another way to check the wash arms is to manually position them at specific locations, momentarily run the dishwasher for a few seconds, then open the door to inspect the location of the wash arms. Do this three or four times to eliminate the possibility of coincidence.

If the wash arms do not move from the location that you put them, the most likely cause is food particles stopping up the water jets. These jets not only clean the dishes but also the water pressure they generate turn the arms inside the dishwasher to properly distribute water pressure on the dishes.

Sometimes you can dislodge and remove food particles stuck in one of the jets with a toothpick or other small probe. Others require that you remove the arm(s) and get a little more creative. I use compressed air to clear mine, but not everyone has access to compressed air, so use whatever you can to remove the food particles.

Simply dislodging them from the water ports is usually not effective... As soon as water pressure is applied, the particles return to the jets and stop them up again. The real fix in this instance is to completely remove the food particles from the arm if you can.

My maytag will not clean the dishes. I have cleaned out the water tubes, I have checked the hot water. all it does when you run a cycle it leaves the dishes dry and the detergent is not being used.

common problem with dishwashers, the filters become blocked/ break down, a cleaning cycle with an approved detergent usually fixes this. if not, the filters my need replacing.

Dishwasher is leaving food particles everywhere


Dishwashers need cleaning too :) Take a look inside your dishwasher: Click here http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=41284 then click on PUMP AND MOTOR diagram on the left. Number 47 on that diagram is a filter. Make sure that filter is clean. Then, using a dishwasher cleaner (see below) run your dishwasher through the entire cycle on empty. This should help, post back if it doesn't. Dishwasher cleaners: 1. Vinegar - good cheap solution, if you don't mind the smell :). Dump a gallon inside an empty dishwasher tub and start up the regular wash cycle. 2. CLR - I've been told it works, but never tried myself 3. Dishwasher Magic - This stuff works pretty good. One bottle per use. http://www.appliancepartspros.com/accessories.aspx?part_id=2675393&cat=62&rdr=%2faccessories.aspx%3fcat%3d62 Hope this helps, APP tech http://www.AppliancePartsPros.com
