I clean my dishwasher regularly. If you look after the technique - it will work longer. But before I clean it for the first time, I read on the Internet how to clean the dishwasher properly. And now I follow this simple instruction every time. How to Clean Dishwasher Filter

Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.

Dishwasher has an odor

Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle.
• Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use.
• Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.)
• For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light
Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle
by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching
the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher
cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.

Good Luck

Portable Maytag dishwasher Will not fill up, but it will drain


Possible that the inlet valve is faulty. You will need to disconnect the water line to the washer to see the flow. If the flow is good check the inlet filter, if this is blocked then the filter must be cleaned .measure the voltage to the inlet valve , if present the valve must open or it is faulty.
If not the program controller is not outputting to open the valve and must be checked.

My dishwasher stinks!


There is food trap of sorts that's part of the soft food disposer. Problem is that food lays down in all the nooks and crannies and festers.

Try this site on YouTube:

You probably don't need to go to this guy's extremes (but he's thorough!). You probably just need the part about how to clean the strainer and bottom of the washer. I think this'll help. There are other videos, some selling products (that I haven't used). Also some of the videos are helpful, you'll just need to take a look. Once you've cleaned the goo, you can help it clean with just one cup of white vinegar and hot water occasionally. Also, use the least amount of detergent that you can, and still get your dishes clean.

Best regards, --W/D--

Maytag Neptune front load washer ??? Is there a filter ???


I was having that problem with smell too and I was told not to completely close the door when the washer is not in use to allow for air flow. When the door is always closed it does not allow for air flow and a mildew smell will develop. I keep mine open when it is not in use now and I do not have that problem anymore.
