Why doesn't upper sray arm work?


  • Improper loading or over loading of dishes and glass ware that blocks the spray arm from rotating; check your user's guide for proper loading methods.
  • the holes in the spray arm can be plugged from food particles or other debris, like coffee grounds; remove the spray arm and clean out the holes; run water through the arm to verify there is no blockage.
  • check to see if the spray arm became disconnected from the feed tube or the feed tube from the water inlet feed hose.; reconnect hose or tighten down on hose clamps
  • check for any filter blockages; remove food particles and debris
  • the tub itself could be under filling, because of a restricted water inlet valve; pour 1 to 2 quarts of water into the tub of the dishwasher and run it; if the performance improves, replace the water inlet valve with a new one; DO NOT try to repair the old valve- it will fail once it's taken apart and put back together.
  • the circulating motor drives a water pump that rotates an impeller, which creates water pressure to go through the washer arms and out the holes. The jetting action of the water pressure exiting the spray arm holes propels the arm to spin...if the water pump impeller is worn, damaged, or impeded by food debris, the cleaning action will be greatly diminished; inspect and clean or replace the impeller if necessary.
  • If the aforementioned trouble shoot and repair methods do not correct the problem, then a more in depth diagnostic check will have to be done by a qualified repair technician to check switches that controls the water/drain pump, (if it is a dual action model for example); to verify if the switch or the pump itself has failed.

Maytag MDB6000AWA doesn't fill with water


I had the same problem. Check and clean the sediment screen in the "water inlet valve". If this isn't plugged it is probably the solenoid on the same valve. I replaced the water inlet valve, took apart the inside apparatus of the dishwasher and gave it a good cleaning and this fixed the problem. The valve cost me $60.00CDN delivered to my door. You can order it online for as little as $30-$40.

Sediment is collecting in the bottom and on the dishes. I have tried a cleaning cycle but it doesn't work.


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

The motor runs and makes a buzzing sound. The water cannot get into the machine because I feel the filter is plugged from sediment from our well. I want to clean the filter but do not know where it is. ...


Empty the racks out. If you examine the core of this thind and start taking it apart starting with the part that spins and cleans, you will see how easy it is. Uner all of that there is a filter. If the filter is not clogged, most likely you have a pump/motor issue.

It won't fill with water


Water valve is locked out. a blockage in some sython tubes may be the cause .remove drain screen remove single screw on a domed plastic cover ,take out and clean the u shaped tubes(note the correct positions).take off the water inlet pipe to remove water pressure to valve (to unlock it) fit all the parts back and try it. if it wont work the blockage is beneath the tubes in a short tube(10" ) in the base below sython tubes.

My dishwasher does not drain after a cleaning cycle. the smelly water stays on the bottom of the washer.


Check the filters (triclean you have to remove the 2 screws on both upper and lower filters inside the machine). Remember how they came apart because you will have to reassemble them 8)
Check both ends of the flex tube from the dishwasher to the drain, and the drain port for blockages.

Equator dishwasher portable


I think I know how to solve your problem. The pressure switch that controls the water supply valve can be accessed from the rear of the dishwasher. Take off the panel that is on the left, viewed from the rear. The pressure switch will be at the upper left with a two part tube leading down to the water sump area. Take the tube apart and clean it out. Any clog is most likely in the lower area, larger diameter tube. When you have the 'clamp' removed, you can pull the large tube off the reducer fitting. If the reducer fitting does not have any debris itself, you probably don't have to disassemble and clean out the upper part of the tube, but you could just to be sure. The first time I had this problem, I just blew out the lower tube. This time I really cleaned it out. To clean the lower part of the tube I used a doubled coat hanger wire. I straightened the tube and inserted the doubled wire, rotated it a few times, and pulled it out. It was covered with gunk. I actually repeated this process several times until it came out relatively clean. I reassembled the dishwasher and it is back to working fine.

Residue of dood,spices on dishes after cleaning


I would suggest calling whirlpool to have a tech come out and look at it. Your appliance is still under warranty if it is under 1 yr old. It will cover parts and labor.
