I have a maytag quiet series 300, dishes dont get clean on top rack and sometimes it doesnt drain. do i need to clean some trap or drain?


Check the screen area around the sump right below the lower spray arm if it is built up with lime deposit then the wash pump is starving for water and cannot pump water to the upper spray arm this would also starve water to the drain pump.

My kenmore washing machine fills with water but will not wash..it sounds like its doing something then it stops after a while i hear it drain and then stops again..water doesnt spray..I let the dishwasher...


Often these work by reversing the motor which has two pump impellers. One direction will pump the water out and the other will pump it through the spray bar. IF the one pump impeller has broken then that would explain your symptoms.

If this is the type you have, verify that the motor is running reversed from when it is draining. If it is not running during wash time, then the timer is probably at fault. If it is running, check for broken pump impeller for the was direction.

Doesnt clean dishes, seems to be no water coming into machine


There should be about 2 inches of water in the bottom of the DW.  If it is filling but not washing the pump may be bad.  That might explain the loud noise (motor bearing).  I assume that the detergent cover is opening but no water is being sprayed to dissolve it.

Dishwasher still turns on but stopped cleaning dishes.


Hey, Matt

If the "soap" left on the dishes is a filmy residue, especially on the glasses, you probably have a failed heating element. The heating element is not only used for drying cycle, but also during the wash cycle to "activate" the detergent.

If the residue is not a film-type stuff, suspect a blockage in the sump/impeller/wash pump area. Check also for blocked holes in the wash arms.

Good Luck! Please report back what you find, OK?

Bottom rotating arm doesnt spray water but top arm does


i have a similar problem. water is not reaching the bottom spray arm. there. i have an underwater case for my digital camera, so i'm going to put a torch or 2 in some waterproof bags and remove the bottom spray arm and run the dishwasher to see if there's water coming out of the bottom pipe, if not, i need to try and see if there's a blockage in the system, or a dodgy valve, could be that the soldering's or the control panel's buggered.

It could be a pump issue. The dishwasher has a motor that attached to a pump which forces the water up into the sprayer arms and during the drain cycle,it pushes the water out of the dishwasher. The motor and pump are located beneath the dishwasher. Look if the pump's impeller (a round plastic fan blade-type of device) spins around freely. In case it doesn't spin freely, look if it doesn't blocked or stuck from any other reason. Good luck!
