Maytag 300 Quiet Series Dishwasher

My dishwasher appears to not be draining properly. After each complete cycle there is water in the bottom of the tub. Model #MDBH965AWW My maytag quiet series 300 mdbh955aww is not cleaning my dishes! There is always dirty water left in the bottom of the washer after a cycle. I discovered that the sprayer arms are not turning on the rack, bottom, or top. It seems like there is not enough water pressure. I took the machine apart down to the motor. I didn't notice anything wrong, but I didn't know what to look for. Also, lately it has been making this horrible clicking and grinding noise. Any suggestions?
Thanks, Christine .

SOURCE: whirlpool quiet partner II top rack sprayer doesnt

The top rack spray arm doesn't work because of low water pressure from the wash motor or it's clogged with debris.
If the top spray arm looks clear of debris, remove the lower spray arm and lower feed tube to access the wash motor. Remove the 4 torx screws and the filter (accumulator assembly). Remove the torx screw and the inlet protector that covers the chopper assembly. Make sure the chopper is not broken (broken chopper will fill with debris and block water flow). While holding the chopper blade, reach inside the "D" shaped opening on top of the motor and spin the wheel/motor by hand in each direction to make sure either the chopper gear or the motor gear that drives the chopper is not broken. Replace the chopper if necessary (part # 8268383). If the motor gear is broken, replace the sump and motor assembly (part # 8535150). Remove any debris from the sump area in the process.
You don't have to shut the power off to the dishwasher because the door will be open, but if you feel more comfortable, do so.
Good luck!

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 smells broken door latch and lower rack

I have had the same problem and there is a simple fix.

The problem in my case was the floating water sensor was stuck and gummed up with grease.

On the bottom of the dishwasher, in the front right corner there is a round doughnut-looking thing. This is the water level sensor. It is open on the bottom, and grease collects there.

When this happens, the air pocket is too small, and the float won't float. then the dishwasher overflows. To clean it: just reach under with your finger, and scoop out the grease.

Sometimes, after doing this, the float then gets stuck in the "up" position. When this happens, the dishwasher completely drains, and the heater element for the dishwasher is exposed, and food cooks onto it, and that is where the smell is coming from.

SOURCE: quiet partner 1 top rack does not get clean at all

Hi,

I would suspect you have debris in the pump that is causing a pressure drop so the water is not spraying well in the upper arm.

Try this procedure to clean out the sump. Let me know if it helps.

Why will my dishwasher Electrolux model #EIDW5905JS0A, not drain completely at the end of its cycle.


Good Morning Friend,

I understand your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EIDW5905JS, will not completely drain at the end of the cycle. It is not normal for water to remain in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle. If water remains in the bottom of the tub at the end of a cycle, the dishwasher may not be draining properly. Please follow these troubleshooting tips:

    1)If unit is hooked up to a garbage disposal, make sure the disposer is empty.

    2)If unit is hooked up to a new food waste disposer, check to see if the "knockout" plug located inside the disposal inlet has been removed.

    3)Check to see if drain hose is kinked.

    4)Make sure cycle is complete, not in a pause.


    I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

    -Best Regards-

Maytag DWC7602 drainage problem from tub bottom


OK. Try these steps.
-If hooked up to a food waste disposer, be sure the "knock out" is removed from the disposal inlet.
-Be sure the drain hose is ELEVATED at least 32" so water cannot siphon back in the tub.
-Check for a food obstruction in the drain or disposer.
-Check drain hose for a kink.
-Check your home's circuit breaker or fuse box.
-Check that the cycle is completed.
Hope this helps you!

I have a tricity bendix dishwasher.It is not washing properly,also the washing tablet dose not desolve.the model n.o is TDF 200


Dishes not cleaned properly....
  1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
  2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
  3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
  4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
  5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.

Water does not drain completely, mostly but not completely and just stays there Maytag Quiet Series 100


If the machine has a auto sensor or auto clean cycle it is supposed to keep water in the bottom. The sensor has to stay wet for it to work properly. My Maytag drains, then fills slightly to do this.

Maytag dishwasher MDB9100A---tub refills after cycle completed


Problem is actually a water valve that is near the water inlet. Cost is about 35 bucks to fix unless you listen to the guy on here and pay for parts that you don't need and pay them 20bucks for bad advice. Our total cost to fix this $35 dollar problem was an entire wasted Sat, 2 trips to the appliance repair parts place, $130 for the electrical control board that the "wiz" here said I needed--electronic parts and non returnable so we now have a new one that we didn't need.
