    I can place clean dishes in the dishwasher and run it. They come out with crud on them. It's not food. The unit is a Maytag Series One about 5 years old. I have removed components from the inside of the unit and removed all calcium build up. I can see water below the discharge port. (back right hand side.)I'm wondering if there is crap in the waterpump that gets spread around or if it's coming in when filling. Any chance the drain valve is not closing all the way and letting material back in?
    thanks!

    Check the drain inside the dishwasher. Open it & clean it. It may also need a new impeller-small plastic part on mine. This where the crud is supposed to go rather than spread around inside.

Sorry, I don't have experience with that problem & I'm limited to my experience - I'm not an appliance repair person, just fixed what went wrong with mine & yours sounded kind of similar. I'm sure someone else can help you out.

Dirty cups and baby bottles after dishwasher has been run


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. One of the biggest causes of the symptom you describe is that there is a partial blockage of the drain. The blockage areas are most often in the "Air Gap" A device that looks like an inverted 5 oz Dixie cup on the back of the sink with no cone shape. Food particles collect in the very top of that and slow down the drain process. Because of that the dishwasher doesn't completely drain between cycles. So what you get is recycled previous cycle water in the rinse.

Other places where blockages occur are at the garbage disposal side inlet hole. And the last place is under the wash arm tower / mini riser in the pump impeller outlet area. To clean under the lower wash arm riser it requires diassembly and a good memory of how everything came apart / goes back together when your done cleaning.

After washing cycle dishes do have not been rinsed


Not Rincing properly normally referrs to a few things to check. 1)remove both rotors and clean holes properly. Once dishes have been stacked make sure the rotors can turn freely. Try now. Suggest you clean the sieve on the incomming water pipe.(at the valve.)

Greasy Film on dishes


You need to use something with citric acid in it like a can of frozen OJ or tang, the citric acid helps break up deposits. (run without any dishes in it) Hope it helps.

I would fill the dishwasher only half full of dishes that are well rinsed off, run the sink water til hot before turning on the dishwasher, use a good quality dishwasher soap or tablet, and make sure the dishwasher is set to a full length setting like potscrubber as opposed to rinse and hold.

I have a maytag mdb4000aww dish washer. The dishes aren't getting consistently clean. I wanted to clean the trap/filter. There's two ports towards the front side. The one on the right i was able to...


Hi
The port on the left is the float it has no filter don’t try to remove it. To get your dishes cleaner: step one, each time you wash run the tap water in your sink till it’s hot. Step two, buy what’s called “dishwasher magic” use that every 2-3 months. Three, use rinse aid. Four, check the sprayer arms, make sure all the holes are clear and that they spin freely when the dishwasher is loaded. There is the possibility that the interior motor area needs to be cleaned, if you’re handy you can remove the lower spray arm and the cover, lift that up to expose the interior motor area, this is fairly involved, if you’re not comfortable you should call for repair, it shouldn’t cost too much.
