Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher
Maytag MDB9100AWQ, does not clean well, many times the detergent door will open but detergent just runs down the inside of the door, white film on dishes when it does clean, and rotating arms loo as if the hole are plugged with detergent
If Rylee's above solutions do not fix your problem the filters may indeed be the problem. Start by removing the lower spray arm. There is no need to remove the arm from what I'll call the "arm base/cover assembly"; keep it clipped on.At the center of the arm is a knurled screw. It looks like a thin disk with several bumps on it, about 2 inches in diameter. It will unscrew (lefty-loosy) and allow removal of the arm assembly. At quick glance it appears to be a molded part of the arm but that's a clever disguise. Making this part a different color would be too helpful. What else would the Maytag repairman do it they made it easy for the do-it yourselfer?
Anyway, after removing the spray arm take note (or photos) of the visible parts, i.e, spray nozzle, 2 split plastic spacers. Be sure you'll be able to return these to their proper position later.
Remove the six torx (star-shaped) screws and lift the impeller cover off. Again note/photograph the position of remaining parts, i.e. filter, impeller. You will likely find the filter clogged with debris. It can be pulled out. On my model it is retained in a groove and take a bit of force to remove. I used water pressure (sink sprayer) and a toothbrush to clean my filter.
Remove any debris from the sump/ drain area. Reassembly is reverse of installation. Be sure to flush out the arm assembly to unblock all holes before re-installing it.
I hope this helps.

Kindly check for the following :
1. Check the water temperature. Should be 125 to 140 F.
2. Check pump re-circulation., Listen, see if it sounds like it is spraying the water around with enough pressure.
3. Check water level when the fill cycle has completed. Should be just under the heating element. If not, possibly need to replace the water inlet valve.
4. Check the spray arm and pump cover for splits or leaks.
5. Check to make sure dishwasher is draining after each cycle. There should only be a little water in the bottom of the tub.
6. Make sure the dishes are loaded properly, or dishwasher is not overloaded.
7. Possibly try a different detergent. Some liquid-gels will bubble and a pump cannot pump bubbles.
Please revert for any clarifications.
A "Fixya" rating would be appreciated if you have found this to be Helpful.

I have come across this problem before,first check filter/s are free from all waste,then open water containor at the bottom of machine pour in about two cups of dishwasher salt or to level indicated.Run your dishwasher with-out dishes or detergent for one/two cycles you will find the salt will return your machine like new [ dont forget to check your salt levels every two/four weeks.adrian

You will need to clean the wash arm and unclog the spray holes.. use white vinegar to break down the soap deposit and a sharp metal tool such as an awl to free these holes up from any build up.. white vinegar may be applied while unclogging the openings..
Then, once the spray arm holes are freed of deposits..Start with an empty dishwasher.. and then start a wash on the hottest available setting and then after a few minutes of it cycling.. pause it and add a cup or two of white vinegar to the wash ( the white vinegar should break down any soap residue and allow it to be rinsed away)..once complete.. use about 1/3 less detergent than you have been. See if that gets your DW back in working order.. Hope that helps..
