Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB6600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Diswasher doesnt clean and leaves

Maytag dishwasher, less than two years old. Doesnt clean very well. Cups, especialy ceramic ones on top shelf have a grimes and gunk caked into them at end of cycle. SOmetimes not all, washer makes a grinding sound when it starts up, seems unrelated to washing problem. i use a solid pellet type of dishwashing detergent (Electrasol) and have rinsed with vinegar which is only partially helpful, first wash is cleaner but not spotless. MDB6601 use liquid soap and jet dry but glasses still have sand size food particles that dont rise off. Unit drains intirely, makes no strange noises and was installed in 2007. Ran ok for first year but now it takes 2 cycles to get clean and usually end up hand washing them anyway.So why do I need dishwasher.

I have a maytag quiet series 300, dishes dont get clean on top rack and sometimes it doesnt drain. do i need to clean some trap or drain?


Check the screen area around the sump right below the lower spray arm if it is built up with lime deposit then the wash pump is starving for water and cannot pump water to the upper spray arm this would also starve water to the drain pump.

Our Maytag quiet series 200 does not clean or rinse dishes properly. It leaves film all over cups and dishes. Water also seems not to be draining out. It is 6 years old


It is not the dishwasher. The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com to find out more info.

Ingrained glass on top shelf


Hello. Begin by running the dishwasher after adding two cups of vinegar. Use the hottest and longest cycle u have. This will clean your machine. Then change over to cascade liquid and see if it imakes a difference. Finally, always run the hot water in the sink until it is real hot before you turn on your dishwasher.

Dishes still dirty after wash cycle


It would be real helpful to have you provide the manufacterer and model number to get more specific with solution.
-Have you changes dishwasher soap powder recently? Buy a box of Electrosol or Cascade and see what happens. The ultracheep versions actually have caused cleaning problems, especilly in water-conserving dishwashers.
-Under the lower rack is the sump area with a filter that can be removed, usaully by removing several screws. Pull that filter, rinse is as best you can. Inspect under where the filter was and remove all debris. Watch out for broken glass that is found in most well used diswashers, it is hard to see and sharp! Reasemble the filter.
-If problems continue and if this diswasher is several years old, plan on getting the wash pump motor replaced (or replace the diswasher with a name brand, Energy Star model.) Good Luck!
Please update me with what you found. OK?

Diswasher doesnt clean and leaves "gunk" on top shelf items


The rinse agent is a separate product. I use CascadeCrystal Clear in a 16 ounce bottle. In your machine (if it's anything like mine) there should be what looks like a screw cap next to the soap dispenser. Unscrew that and pour in the product.I was told by the appliance store where I bought my machine that you have to use this in stainless steel washers. Also I would try a liquid type soap. I use Cascade with shine shield. I think from past experience that the pellets aren't very good especially if you have hard water.

Bosch Diswasher


Remove the drain hose and check if you have any residual into it. After 11 years your appliance may need a thourought cleaning.
Check also if the pump has enough pressure.
