MDBTT60awb - Does Not Clean Thoroughly

I have posted it here .. because I could not find a appropriate model number.
The unit has recently started leaving small amounts of residue on the dishes.
It is NOT an issue of dried or caked on food...
Especially noticeable on the (upside down) cups
I use the tab variety of soap
The jet dry is full

    We have had this problem with our Maytag dishwahser also. I believe the garbage digester unit is not functioning properly. I make a point to rinse thoroughly the dishes now and it works better.

    I have a MDB5600AWW that has this same exact symptom.

    Serial number is: 14174540AX



    The internal filters are clean, and I checked the holes in the wash arms, and they are not plugged.



    Can you help ?

    Thanks

    Same problem as described by others. Cups, glasses, mugs, etc. on top rack have small particles of debris in them. We have increased water temp, used different rinse aid and detergent brands, rinsed dishwasher with vineager, cleaned wash arms and filters. Two Maytag techs have tried to solve problem, nothing helps.

How can I tell if fuel has had oil added to it


Gasoline is a very clean fuel and when it evaporates it does not leave any residue. Gas which has had oil added will leave behind an oily residue. Put a small amount of fuel in a glass jar and set out in a well ventilated area away from any potential sources of ignition. Let the fuel evaporate and then wipe the bottom of the jar with your finger. Rub your thumb against your finger and see if it feels oily.

check that the small hose to the pickup in the salt tank is not blocked or loose allowing air into the unit rather than the salt water. IT runs on a venturi effect so any air leaks will not allow the water to be picked up. Download the operating manual for the unit as it has a detailed operation including fault finding and over hauling of the unit.

Were there recalls on any of ghese models


The problem of residual water in front load washers is an on going problem. Some companies had put in a small drain hose in their units to alleviate the problem. Your washer is actually built by Whirlpool. There is no available auxiliary drain for these models. These are the suggested solutions to alleviate for your particular machine.

1. Leave the door open after wash completed. This will help to evaporate the residual water. If in an area where the door cannot be left fully open then place a towel over the top of the door to keep it from closing and that will help by keeping the door open a small amount.

2. To alleviate odor, pour one cup of bleach in the drum... DO NOT PUT ANY CLOTHES IN THE MACHINE! Put the washer through a wash cycle... some models had a clean cycle if your has this then use this cycle. Once this has completed remember to do a white load following this procedure to assure that if there is any bleach residual then it wont cause problems with colors.

3. Dry the door seal after each use... this will eliminate mold from developing on the door seal. If you see mold then use a bathroom cleanser for mold removal to clean the seal... DO NOT USE A SOLUTION OF VINEGAR... THIS COULD DRY OUT THE SEAL CAUSING IT TO CRACK THUS REQUIRING REPLACEMENT.

FYI: The Maytag Company went bankrupt sometime ago, the name Maytag wash purchased by Whirlpool and appears on products to secure the business of faithful Maytag users...

GE Top Load Washer WLSR2000G3WW~leaves oil residue on clothes and bowl


If it is grease that is in the tub then the trans is shot. Thats the only part that would result in this. Very pricy part but if you want to order it go to marcone.com with your model number and you can get the parts. I would not recommend fixing this, costs almost as much as new unit.

Leaves white clothes gray


Many of the machines are having a similar issue I am trying to find a resolution to fixing this, there are two issues. First Whirlpool has just recently identified a problem with premature bleach dispensing. Another dispensing problem I had is that fabric softener had to be diluted otherwise it would not wash out of the dispenser. And finally, the fabric softener dispenser would still hold a small amount of water after the wash cycle completed.Removing the top of some washers I have found that there is often a lot of stainless steel polish residue around the rim of the machine - which should have been cleaned away before the machine was shipped from Whirlpool. The gray, oily residue was not visible without removing the top of the washer. Knowing now what has caused the dark gray streaks on many peoples laundry.
