If the hose has a hole in it you should replace it because it is worn out .Usually when these hoses leak you just need to tighten the clamp or reset the hose on the outlet.

How to troubleshoot your dishwasher


<span>Instructions</span> <ol> Dishwasher Does Not Run <li> <br /> Make sure the power is on, door is latched and controls are set properly.<br /> </li> <li> <br /> Look to see if the door switch, timer or selector switch are defective.

Poor rinse on maytag model mdb8600awq


Did you check the screen at the bottom of your dishwasher? It may be clogged with food particles. If these particles aren't small enough to get flushed down they will just recycle through the water.

I always make it a practice to rinse off my dishes before I place them in the DW. Some newer models have better drainage systems, but perhaps yours is an older model.

My dishwasher is not cleaning dishes well


Hi.

A dishwasher may clean poorly for a number of different reasons. Before replacing parts or looking for a fault I suggest going through the following checklist:

  • Make sure you are not using a rinse only cycle, test using Hi Temp Wash cycle and Hi Scrub.
  • Check that you are using proper detergent, as suggested in the manual.
  • Make sure you are using rinse aid.
  • Make sure that dishes and pans are correctly positioned in the baskets.
  • Check if stains go away when you soak the glasses in vinegar. In that case the problem is hard water. Correct the amount of detergent as from manual.
  • Check that the arms are free to rotate.
  • Check for leaks in the duct to the upper spray arms, make sure that the upper spray arm is well mounted.
  • Make sure that incoming water from the house has pressure and that hot water has temperature specified in manual (e.g 120F-50C).
  • Check for food obstruction in the drain or disposer.
  • Check that the drain hose at the back is not kinked.
  • Check that the machine is completing the cycle.
  • Try running a light cycle with both sides of the detergent cup filled with soda or Jet Cleaner product.

If none of the above is the problem, then improper cleaning may be caused by a faulty part. Parts that may result in poor cleaning if faulty are:
Accumulator Filter connected to pump
  • Drain hose, duct and drain lines
  • Detergent release system.
  • Spray arms.
  • Spray arm ducts and flappers.
  • Seal and Chopper Kit (if installed)
  • Wash Impeller pump.

Dishwasher will not clean well leaving a lot of particles, etc. on dishes.


Hi Jim.

A dishwasher may clean poorly for a number of different reasons. Before replacing parts or looking for a fault I suggest going through the following checklist:

  1. Make sure you are not using a rinse only cycle, test using Hi Temp Wash cycle and Hi Scrub.
  2. Check that you are using proper detergent, as suggested in the manual.
  3. Make sure you are using rinse aid.
  4. Make sure that dishes and pans are correctly positioned in the baskets.
  5. Check if stains go away when you soak the glasses in vinegar. In that case the problem is hard water. Correct the amount of detergent as from page 7 on manual.
  6. Check that the arms are free to rotate.
  7. Check for leaks in the duct to the upper spray arms, make sure that the upper spray arm is well mounted.
  8. Make sure that incoming water from the house has pressure and that hot water has about 120F(50C).
  9. Check for food obstruction in the drain or disposer.
  10. Check that the drain hose at the back is not kinked.
  11. Check that the machine is completing the cycle.
  12. Try running a light cycle with both sides of the detergent cup filled with soda or Jet Cleaner product.
If none of the above is the problem, then the most common faults with this model that result in incorrect cleaning are caused by the following parts. Please refer to the part manual to find diagrams and part location.

  1. Accumulator Filter (part 7 in Pump and motor diagram)
  2. Docking Station with Flappers(part 3 in Water Distribution Assembly)
  3. Seal and Chopper Kit (part 9 in Pump and motor diagram)
  4. Wash Impeller(part 6 in Water Distribution Assembly)

Locked flappers and clogged filter are the most common causes that may result in improper wash.Please refer to the part manual to find diagrams and part location.

What would cause my dishwasher not to drain?


not sure if you have posted the model number of your dishwasher.

There are several reasons for dishwasher not to drain.

1. faulty drain pump
2. clogged kitchen sink drain
3. drain cycle is not reached due to faulty dishwasher controller
4. clogged drain hose
5. the wash cycle is not completed due to heater not heating water - (try rinse cycle to confirm)

Happy to help if you can provide some details on when the drain cycle is not working. do you get any alarms on dishwasher..etc.

The dish washing powder does not wash out completely unless the machine is set to heavy duty only. we will often open the machine at the end of a wash cycle and see the soap powder all wet and soft but not...


Seems to be problem with spray arm pressure. Check the spray
arm jet nozzles.
Check the incoming water flow to the machine. clean the strainer fitted at the washing machine end connection.
Being in the extended warranty, take the help from
the service provider.

Cloths stink, towels not soft. Can I increase the amount of water used per cycle? How? thanks, jim maxwell


Make sure there are no leaks from the machine. Look behind it and check the water inlet hose and connectors for any damage. Also look under the machine for any water as this may indicate a leak from the internal hose and pipe work and / or water pump. Also check that the outlet hose and door rubber is completely clear of debris and soap scum build up and check that the filter is clean.

You can initially use a bathroom mould and bacteria cleaner to get rid of the immediate problem or wash using a bleach solution made up from 1 part household bleach to 10 parts water. Place this in an aerosol spray bottle and spray the affected area and leave for 10 mins then wipe away and rinse with clean water.

  1. To keep the machine clean of waste or mould build up and to keep any bad odours away
  2. Remove all items from the washer.
  3. Open the dispenser drawer and 2/3 cup (160 mL) of liquid chlorine bleach to the bleach compartment. DO NOT use more than 2/3 cup (160mL) of bleach per cycle as this will lead to product damage.
  4. Close the washer door and dispenser drawer.
  5. Select the Clean Washer cycle or a full wash cotton 104 F wash (40 C). DO NOT use any higher temperature as this will cause unnecessary fumes
  6. Press Start and allow cycle to complete.
  7. After the cycle is complete, leave the door open slightly to allow ventilation and drying of the washer interior.
  8. Repeat the cleaning procedure monthly
Also from your description it sounds as though you need to use a water softener (washing soda) or use slightly more deteregent and possibly more fabric conditioner inthe wash. Also washing performance can be increased by using slightly higer temperatures and / or a bilogical detergent.

Food particles are on dishes after washing


Try adding bicarb of soda/baking soda and vinegar in the detergent dispenser. Bicarb fizzes off hardened particles and vinegar strips off grease and aids rinsing.
