If they are spotty or cloudy looking it is probably your water. hard water after being heated in the dishwasher dries leaving a white residue. there is a product out that is very affordable that filters the water going into your dishwasher. it is guaranteed to work or your money back. find out more about it at www.dishwasherfilter.com.

Check your hot water supply. It should be at least 125 degrees. Are the dishes spotty or still dirty with old food? Try to pre-rinse your dishes before putting them into the dishwasher. You can also run your hot water until it's nice and hot coming from the sink before turning your dishwasher on. If they're spotty, use less or better quality detergent. My guess is going to be water temperature or pressure.

Any ideas as to why dishes do not come clean?


Their cold be a couple of reasons. Are your dishes stacked too close together inhibiting the water from getting to the dishes? Are you putting in enough soap to get the job done? How dirty are the dishes and how long has the food dried on the dishes? when I have a lot of dishes I always put the dishwasher on high temp to make sure the dishes get clean!

Dishs not coming out clean


It is a known fact that if you rince your dishs off before you place them in the dishwasher your dishs will come out alot cleaner. Stuck on foods can be baked on the dish causing the dish not to come out clean also by doing this it will exstend the life of your product because the passage ways for the sprayer will not get cloged giving a full pressure washing

Dishes not coming out clean


Hello

There are some things you can try, however, if your Maytag dishwasher is not getting your dishes as clean as you would like. Maytag recommends several processes for fixing this issue with your dishwasher.


Do not run your Maytag dishwasher while hot water is being used in other parts of your home, such as washing clothes or showering. Hot water is needed for your Maytag dishwasher to properly clean dishes.


Run water in the sink in your kitchen until it gets very hot. Then, turn on your Maytag dishwasher. This will ensure that the water cleaning your dishes is the hottest possible temperature.


Clean your Maytag dishwasher to improve the cleaning results for dishes. Run your dishwasher on a short wash cycle and wait for it to fill up with water. Stop the cycle and add about 1/3 of a cup of rust remover to the dishwasher and finish the cycle. Run your Maytag dishwasher through one normal cycle with regular detergent to finish the cleaning process.


Check your detergent. Old detergent or those that have been exposed to moisture can be clumpy. This detergent will not clean your dishes as well when loaded into your Maytag dishwasher. Purchase fresh detergent.


Use extra detergent when washing dishes that have a lot of built-up grease or food particles. The extra amount of detergent is needed to get your dishes clean. Choose a long cleaning cycle to clean these dishes.


Fill your Maytag dishwasher properly. Dishes should not be stacked on top of each other or excessively crammed into your dishwasher. This will keep the dishwasher from adequately cleaning all areas of your dishes and from rinsing them thoroughly.

When we open dishwasher theres standing water in the drain area and it smells bad this is after washing aload dishs look clean but inside stinks


After you run a load of dishes put 1cup of CLR or vinegar (white) and run a quick wash.no dishes,after running dishes clean out spray arm and clean strainer,use a rinse agent like finish, and spray off dishes before loading.About 35yrs. ago I use to be a dishwasher as one of my first job's and if you did'nt spray the dishes and scrap them off before loading,the dishes would not come out clean,And after each shift the dish washer would be cleaned out.

Dishes won't come clean


If you have dishes (typically cutting boards or really tall dishes) that block the dispenser door from opening, the water cannot wash out all the detergent during the wash cycle. Check to see that after loading the dishes, your detergent door has clearance.
