Maytag quiet series 300 model mdb5601aws making noise

My maytag is making a grinding noise throught out the wash cycle im pretty sure its not the pump because it pumps the water out without no noise at the end of the wash. Ive taken it all apart found no debris stuck in any of the parts. The motor spindle spins free with no problem dosent seem to be loose or have a bad bearing but the noise seems to be coming from the motor area I cannot be sure. I would hate to replace the motor if that is not the problem any help would be greatly appreaciated

Thanks,

    I have the same grinding noise issue. Started doing it occassionally and last night grinding/humming noise lasted through the entire cycle. Is there something that I should disassemble and clean out. What is the macerator? How do I get to it? Thanks

    I have the same problem - got a new machine in '07 and it had to be replaced by year end due to same problem (it was under warrenty then). Now, a year and four months later going out again...the parts were over $300 when it was under warrenty, which was almost the price of the machine!

Sounds like the macerator is bent out of shape from something going through the pump. Get a impeller kit and replace all the parts and you should lose the grinding noise. I can look up the part number if you want

We have the same problem, the repair guy told us it was something being chewed up by the garborator in the machine. turned out to be a piece of plastic from the factory.
It is doing it again, about 1 yr later. I have no idea how to get to the part I need. Do we get to it from under the machine? I think that is how the repairman did it before, buut not 100% sure.
Please let me know.

Foul smell coming from Maytag Quiet Series 300


Hello jscott,
It is typical nowdays for most dishwashers not to drain all water out of the bottom tub (Even where you cant see) due to siphon design and energy efficiency. Try using about a liter of vinegar and throw it on the bottom tub of the dishwasher. Let it run through a full cycle and see how that works. Has worked for me

Loud noise


Check for bones/glass/ceramic from chipped plates in the food chopper (for lack of a better term). You'll need to disassemble the entire lower arm unit.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 Dishwasher not working (Model MDB5601A)


While I am not directly aware of the controls on the dishwasher I'd unplug it for a minute or two to see if the control reboots (for lack of a better term) I've seen many electroic devices that on occasion have this type of problem and simply taking the power from it may correct it.
I hope this helps,
Tom

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.

Hi jeffwirch,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You have a maytag quiet series 300. When it is done with any of the cycles in leaves about 1-2 inches of water in the bottom of the dishwasher. You can manually hit the start button twice and it will go through a 2 minute cycle and pump out the water. You have cleaned the filter inside the dishwasher where it drains and have checked the hose to the disposal and it pumps out fine. It just doen't pump itself at the end of the cycle.

It sounds like a bad control board. It's in the top of the door panel. I don't recomend this repair to the average homeowner. You might consider the Repair Directory to find a repairman.
