My MDB5600AWW isn't cleaning the dishes. Even easy stuff like wet pasta sauce. I watched/listened and discovered the water is not staying in the tub during wash cycles. It fills, then slowly (1-2 mins)...

Check the drain hose... it sounds like it has fallen down too low and is not looped high enough to keep the water in the tub....this will let the water drain right out as it fills like you are saying...

If the lower and upper spray arms do not turn what could be the problem? I have a MDB4100AWB and I of course have hard water in our area and wondering what is causing the spray arms to turn.

could be the plastic shaft extension that screws onto the motor shaft to drive the pump. The threads on the plastic extension would sometimes get stripped out so that even though the motor is running, it isn't driving the pump mechanism. Assuming the dishwasher is filling with water and motor is running during the wash cycle. also check spray arm openings to make sure they aren't plugged up.

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are...

Pour 1 Cup of Muriatic Acid (Can be purchased at your local Pool Supply Store) into the bottom of the washer and a little in the soap dish. Run the Dishwasher through 5 cycles. Check to see If this helps. If not Try the same process with CLR house cleaner.

My Maytag quiet series 200 is a good dish holder but certainly does not wash dishes - tried different soap all settings only result - dirty dishes - ready to throw it out -

do you have a watersoftner if so may not be working properly if its ok then do you always have water sitting in bottom of tub area. try this fill sink with water on disposal side 1/2 the way open door to dishwasher remove the stopper turn on the disposal do you see water or movement in the tub of the dishwasher if so replumb so the drain does not come into the disposal and plug the disposal opening

My dishwasher has water going in to it and it drains but it's not making it to the arms, my dishes are still bone dry after all cycles even pre rinse.

it appears ur wash motor is not running.try this-start the unit and let it run for 2 min( this is the water fill period) and after 2 mins u should hear motor running and water splashing sound.u can even open the door and look for water falling from the spray arms.but after 2 mins if u hear only a humming sound and no water splash sound then motor is bad and needs to be chgd.drain motor is seperate for draining the water.

My dishwasher not spraying water

Answer kind of depends on whether tub fills or not. If tub is filling and the arms just aren't spraying water, that would suggest a problem with the pump or motor. If the tub is not even filling at all, then it may be a problem with the intake strainer, solenoid or valve. If you give mfg/model and more specific info I will try to help... Tripp

Wash cycle

Check first that the filter located inside the machine (on bottom) is clean. In case it clean - The problem is with the pump. It could be a blockage between pump and the tub, or just a defective pump (The pump takes suction from the tub and forces water up through the spray arms, which spray the dishes. The water then simply drops back into the tub for recirculation). Good luck !!
