Question about Dishwashers

After cycle, there is grit on my dishes

My maytag is about two years old. I have used the same powder soap since. When the cycle is done, there is brown grit on most of the dishes and some don't even come clean. Another trouble shooting site said to check the fine particle filter and inlet filter screens. What and where the heck are these?

When I run my dishwasher I find the soap cube lying in the bottom of the machine after the full run cycle and the dishes just get a rinse


Is it possible your dishwasher can't use soap cubes? I have seen powder and/or liquid specified.

Dishes are still dirty ...8 year old Maytag usually works good...recently is doing a poor job


Have you tried :
-Increasing the water temperature?
-Changing you dishwasher detergent from a powder to a liquid?
-Using a longer cycle?
-Using diswasher cleaner? I find that this is usually the answer. You can buy it in the grocery store where they sell dishwasher soap and rinse aids. Read directions and follow closely. If you have hard or well water you may want to do this more often then the package directs. Depending on how bad the calcum buildup it may take a couple tries to clear up the dirty dish issue.

My whirlpool dishwasher soap dispenser is apparently not opening during cleaning. I find dirty dishes and clumps of soap in the hopper. Whirlpool quiet partner II


I bet your clumps of soap began with the beginning of the use of a different DW detergent powder.

Try this (trust me) Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) Use it for two loads of dishes and report your results back here. OK?

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

If you are you using a liquid soap or packets that will be the main problem.If your unit fills with water circulates the water and drains the water,and also heaters are working then you probally need to change to cascade powder soap.The film on the dishes is soap.The unit has so much build up in it that when it gets to the rinse cycle it is rinsing dishes with soapy water.You need to get 2 medium bowls fill both 2/3 up with white vinager,place one in upper rack and one in lower rack and run unit on longest cycle letting the vinager splash out during wash.do this with no soap and no dishes.Having soft water will allow you to use less soap.

Our Kitchenaide dishwasher is approximately 4 years old, all my glass ware comes out cloudy and I have to wash it by hand.


Your using too much soap. Use 2-3 tespoons of name brand powder soap. Premeasured gel packs or tablets are too much soap as well. Cut them in half if u are using those. You can run a cycle with 5-6 cups of white vinegar with no soap or dishes to clean the soap residue from inside the dishwasher.
