Ours did the same thing and needed the seals replaced where the racks plug in. The water wasn't getting up to the top rack because the seal was allowing water to squirt out f it.

It sounds like the hose at the rear of the top shelf has come unconnected. Pull the top shelf out when the washer is empty and take a look. If the hose has come apart you should be able to push it back together. Good luck with it.

I have an old free standing Maytag portable dishwasher, model number WC504. I just need to know what the differences in the drying options are. What is the difference between Power Dry, Temp Boost, and...


Power Dry uses a little more electricity when drying but does a good job.

Temp Boost will raise the wash temperature to clean better, this uses very little extra energy and works well, it may add a little time to the cycle

Energy saver will not dry the dishes or boost the water as hot as needed to sanitize. It will save about 2 cents per load.

If you need plastics to dry always put them in the top rack and use the power dry. Use rinse aid to help with drying.

Dishwasher


basic checks:
is water entering into the machine.
is it hot.
is it being heated during pre-wash
is the soap being dispensed
is the pump running when cycling?
do the arms turn freely?

you mentioned the top and bottom shelves. are there places where the dishes 'are' being cleaned?, or are you meaning that in general they are not being cleaned at all?

most of the above indicators are observable by stopping the wash cycle from time to time in various modes.
to see if water is being pumped at all, put a bowl on the top and bottom shelf, and nothing else. if there is water in it after it cycles then the pump is moving at least some water.
start with these observations and please report back
good luck

Maytag dishwasher latch


If it like mine, the latch is out of adjustment and you need to give it a whack with your hip to start it. If I adjust the latch looser, it leaks.
