Maytag Quiet Series 300/Dishwasher leaving gritty stuff on dishes

When we use the dish washer the dishes come out worse than when we put them in. The dishes, especially on the top, have grit stuck on them. It's incredibly hard to get it off once the dry-cycle has completed and "bakes it on".

Any...I am looking for some help on how to stop this from happening.

Thanks

Cheri

    I have the same problem and use the expensive dishwashing detergent.

    Please let me know if you figure this out! It seems to squirt the grit up inside the glasses on the top rack so the inside bottoms have grit baked on, and other items have grit on the outside, so I can't isolate where it's coming from. I use Cascade with Dawn lemon scent. My dishwasher was recalled with the jet dry problem but I did not install the part they sent me to seal it off--I was a little offended because I thought they were sending a part to fix the problem. Could that have anything to do with this?

    We are having the same problem. We typically don't use Jet Dry or the drying button. We do have hard water and the softener was down for a bit but it's hard to believe it would lime up that quickly.

    Sounds like Maytag has a quality control issue. They should get on top of this.

My model is simillar Cheri's. Every couple years I have to remove the plastic spray bars. They are held on by a simple torque screw. Once removed you will see debris plugging many of the holes. I have found this on all 4 of my spray bars. This debris prevents the right amount of water in the wash and rinse cycles. The upper spray bars seem to be the worse. This explains the trouble most folks have with glasses in the upper rack. Also check the docking station. You will fiind it along the back wall of your unit. The plastic tubes on the backside of each rack will slide into a hole in the docking station. After a few years the rubber seal in the docking station will be worn away. Once this happens, it prevents the correct water pressure to the upper rack. The replacement part snaps into place and cost about $25.

I have found that the top spray arm can become coated with food residue in all of the parts that are supposed to be loose enough to let the arm rotate. I removed the arm by releasing the brackets that hold it in place and using the correct torque screw thingie removed the sprayer arm from the bracket assembly. As I disassembled it each fitted plastic piece was coated with a white gummy and gritty substance. I'm thinking it is probably mostly paper labels from jars that my better half is too lazy to soak off. I removed about a tablespoon of this stuff that was gunking up the parts and then ran the dishwasher with a cup of bleach. Haven't been brave enough to disassemble the bottom spray arm/pump assembly yet but this has helped a lot!

I use siemens dishwasherand recently noticed some grit like substance left on my dishes etc after every wash


There should be a screen under the spray bar. Make sure that is clean. So "grit" is not recirculated in the wash cycle. Is "grit" showing up in your house water elsewhere? Check with clear water glass. Also consider testing with a competitive wash compound to see if there is any difference. A sample or from your friends.

Grit in clean glasses and on dishes


Mary do you have a water softener? If so, only use 1 tablespoon of dry dishwashing detergent per wash. Don't use tablets or liquid soaps. Too much soap will wear down the items you wash, leave streaks and pock your dishes. That might be what the sandy grit is. Also, to get rid of the grit inside of your washer you can buy a special dishwasher cleaner at almost any hardware store. Always try to use a rinse-aid. Make sure your drain filters are clean. Hope this helps. Jewels

Food gets stuck on dishes especially in the top rack.


There is a waste filter in the bottom under the lower spray arm that needs to be cleaned periodically. If you are not cleaning it, it may be redepositing food particles on your dishes.
remove and clean the filter, and see if that helps.

Why is my dish washer leaving food on my dishes that i loaded rinsed off?some dishes come out dirtier than i put them in there.


It is almost always because you have blocked the hole where the sprayer goes up through the middle of the dishwasher. If it cannot pop up the dishes will not only not clean, but the food will just deposit onto the dishes especially the upper rack.

Maytag Quiet Series 100, Model # MDB5600AWS, built in dishwasher. Does not get the dishes clean, dishes stay dirty after multiple cycles of washing. Please help!


We also have a Quiet series 100 and had the same problem, the dishes always came out dingy or with food all over them. My washer is about 5 years old and worked well for about 4 of them but the last year has been doing a poorer and poorer job washing the dishes. I finally broke down and removed the racks and all of the plastic parts from the inside of the washer. Doing this revealed that the groves in the under side of most of the plastic parts was clogged with food and debris. After a good scrubbing with water and a brush then reassembly it worked like a new washer again, cleaning the dishes very well and the best part is it saved us about $700.00 for another washer.
