SOURCE: My Maytag dishwasher Model # MDB-3 will not drain.

Hi

Thanks for using FixYa. Dishwasher not draining properly or not draining at all issues can arise due to different reasons. Usually, these issues are related to kinked hoses, knocked out disposer unit (if connected with the dishwasher drain hose) & clogged drain pump & filter.

Also note that dishwashers do not drain completely after a finished cycle and this is normal. Dishwashers are designed to leave some water in the unit to ensure that the heating element doesn’t overheat. If you suddenly begin to experience a large amount of water being retained in your dishwasher, you have a problem. Some of the most common reasons include that the drain hose isn’t working properly, the drain pump isn’t working correctly, or possibly there is a plumbing problem in your home’s drain lines.



First check whether the drain is not clogged or blocked and the line is not kinked. Check all the hoses for blockages & also clean the air gap. Has the disposer been replaced recently? If so, chances are the knockout is still in place. Simply remove the drain hose from the disposer, and knock out the plug. If the disposer has not been replaced, try removing the drain hose from the disposer and use a wet-dry vacuum (prepared for water, of course) to **** any water (and hopefully anything else) from the drain line. Then reconnect the hose, and test the unit. If you have checked the air gap and the drain hose and can’t locate the problem, then it is an issue with the drain pump of the dishwasher.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get their new product. It filters the water and takes out the hard minerals that cause spots and clog dishwashers. It is very affordable and has a money back guarantee.

I was so impressed with the advice on this website, I thought I would take a stab at this. The difference is, I will include all the steps, so if I go into a little too much detail for you, I'm sorry, but I felt a few things got left out that needed to be said.

Tools Needed: screwdriver with t-15, and t-20 torx bits (available at any hardware store), and a pair of pliers. Also I used a headlamp so I did'nt have to hold a flashlight with my teeth.

step#1- Clear a spot on your counter or kitchen table and remove both the lower and upper racks from your dishwasher. The lower rack just lifts out, the upper you will find two light blue plastic caps that once removed will allow you to slide the rack off of the metal slides. Next, the long L shaped spray bar that goes up the back and across the top needs to be un-clipped and removed, 2 clips at top and 2 clips at the back. It might take a little wiggling but that spray bar slides into the top cover, once unclipped push back at the bottom and tilt the upper part toward you, it should come out fairly easily and give you wide open access to the cover. Next you want to remove the plastic nut that holds the spinner in place, using your pliers turn it counter clockwise, it should loosen fairly easily, and remove nut and spinner. Next with either a T-20 or T-25 torx bit, remove the 3 screws that hold the outer cover in place, notice the direction of the tube that plugs into the spray bar, make sure it goes back in the same way. Now remove the T-15 screw that holds the black grinder cover in place and remove screw and cover. Now remove the 6 screws that hold the inner cover in place and remove the cover. You can now see what all the fuss was about, mine included a piece of pistachio shell, a bay leaf, and a cherry pit. Once it's all cleaned out, just reverse these steps and be ready! You have just earned your place as your homes resident handyman or woman!

I've got an MDB-9 and the arms are not spinning.


Oh, Judith, you're my kind of person. Try flushing the arms with your sink sprayer. There may be crud inside and it may be clogging the jets. That will prevent the arms from moving. If that doesn't do it, I have a .22 automatic so you can put the beast out of its misery.
One more thing, when I've called Maytag, the repair folk have been extremely helpful by walking me through solutions for my washer as well as my dishwasher.
Good luck.

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.
