Question about Maytag Dishwashers
My maytag dishwasher does not rinse well the tall glasses in the upper rack.
I have removed 6 screws holding the strainer. I have removed 3 screws holding the discharhe housing.
Now the 3 screws wont go back in. Appears like that the plate chopper below has shifted.
SOURCE: Maytag dishwasher won't start
"unlock" the machine by pressing on '3' and holding for a few seconds. Thats what it says on the back of my dishwasher which is the exact same model.

You will probably have to get at it from the bottom, possibly the back of the washer. Here is a link to your repair manual.

This is often the fill valve. You can test the fill valve coil for continuity with a ohm meter, no needle movement = bad fill valve. You can also test the fill valve for 120 volts at the fill valve with a volt meter, power there and no fill = bad fill valve. No 120 volts there, you will have to trace power back to find the trouble maker. Test things like the float and float switch, wires and timer. Fill valves are very bad for working once or twice and then quitting, if your dishwasher fills the first and second fill cycles and then no more water through the rest of the cycle, replace the fill valve. You will need to remove the access panels to get at the fill valve. Dishwasher fill valves also have a screen built into the valve entrance, this can also get all clogged up and need to be cleaned.

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.

When a dishwasher acts like this, the most common problem is a blockage in the sump area, underneath the lower spray arm. Removing any/all filter and covers down there (screws will need to be removed) and inspecting with a flashlight, remove all debris (watch out for broken glass!) Also, inspect the "impeller" that is turned by the wash motor for damage or being loose while you are down there. Reassemble and test out.
If problems remain, the next most common problem is a failed wash motor. It is common over the years for it to weaken as it heads towards total failure. These motors, when they fail, can not be repaired, rather they must be replaced.
Please post back with what you find, OK?

most common causes of this problem are a defective water inlet valve or
a stuck float switch. The float switch sits under the dish racks and
sends a shut-off signal to the dishwasher when the water level is high
enough. Make sure you only use a Maytag-compatible replacement if you
have to change out your dishwasher's float switch or water inlet valve.
