SOURCE: How to remove upper spray arm of Maytag DWU 9200 BBE dishwasher

There is a plastic clip that holds the spray arm to the inlet line. This clip is in the center and has to be sqeazed together to release the arm.

Both upper and lower spray arms become clogged by different objects like paper, plastic, stems from fruits, etc... These are particles that cannot br dissolved be the detergents.

SOURCE: Maytag MBDF550Aww upper spray arm doesn't spin.

Cleaning the filter was the right thing to try.
Since you don't see cracks/breaks on the spray arm and it appears that it is spinning freely, I doubt that replacing the spray arm will fix your problem.
If your dishwasher is several years old, your problem is likely a failing pump motor, but before you swap that out, check that the impeller is not damaged. Good Luck!

SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher with a spray arm that is stopped

We have a dwu7400 so i'm not sure it is the same, but above the top arm you should see a serrated ring (looks a bit like a flower petal) and that should spin off and the arm should come with it. There's a snap that holds those pieces together that if you squeeze it with your fingers you can get it out. Just reverse that to put it back together.

Maytag jetclean dependable quiet plus doesn't clean dishes


It sounds like you have a faulty float switch. It's cutting off the water inlet before the tub is full.

Dishes are cloudy and have soap residue. Have cleaned upper &lower spray arm often, as good as posible (find holes plugged). water level & temp. seems normal . Water intake screen appears clean


Clean the spray arm jet holes if they are blocked. Check whether you have filled the rinse-aid dispenser.

Check whether arm turns freely when rotated by hand manually.

You have debris down in the pump area. To get to the problem you will work from inside the dish washer and start by removing the spray arm and then using torx driver you will need to remove upper components of the pump/motro assembly to get to the debris. good luck

Dishes on the top rack not cleaning properly


Had similar problem with our Maytag dishwasher--we removed all spray and screen components to the inner case, cleaned the intake screen below the lower spray arm, repaired a split upper spray arm, and inspected everything for cracks or other distortion. All of this helped some, but finally improved things by changing from liquid detergent to a "packet" type. Our water is somewhat hard and builds deposits on the screen at the bottom. Run a no-dish cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the bottom.

Dishes not clean


Depending on the age of this Maytag Jetclean II, you either have a failing pump motor that would need to be replaced.
First step is to clear the filter that is beneath the lower spray arm. (Tools required) Remove all debris you find. Then place a bowl or large cup of vinegar inside the empty dishwasher with no dishwasher powder added and run the unit for a full or short cycle. Use either Cascade or Electrosol powder for the next 30 days, never use gel or tablets in any diswasher.
Please report back what you find and do.

Dishes not clean. Lower spray arm possibly not moving.


Remove the lower basket so you can access the lower arm.

Does it spin freely? If not, remove and clean the rotating point. Make sure the spray nozzles are not clogged and there as no chunks of stuff inside the spray arm.

Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem


This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
