Question about Maytag MDB9600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

I have a Maytag MDB dishwasher. We recently took apart the spray arm assembly down to the filter to clean out the lime. The problem is that the inside of the spray arm has such a build up of lime and we cannot get inside the narrow space to scrape the lime out. How can I dissolve the lime that is inside of parts?

Have you tried boiling it in vinegar? it might help. no garenties for that particular problem, but that's what I do with my kettle and chunks of lime come out when I do.

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!

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.

Dishwasher will not spray water from arms


Check for utensils or pot handles that may be hanging below the bottom rack and interfering with motion of spray head.
Clean holes with toothpick.
Check temperature at hot water faucet with meat thermometer. If below 120°F (49°C), turn up thermostat on hot water heater.
