I just took mine apart (bottom turntable, screen, etc.) and I was disgusted by the grime and gum that was clogging everything. I think it was keeping all the water a gritty white, which constantly left residue. I am currently running a load... hope that the "clean" dishwasher actually washes my dishes now!

    Thx - will try that. I replaced the water spinner (arm) under the top rack and the one above the top rack thinking those were clogged or not working right . I ran the dishwasher with NO SOAP - and it wasnt as bad - but dishes still coming out nasty and filmy. So - am thinking i will take the bottom apart like you suggested and see what is going on down in the bottom of the dishwasher. Thx for the heads up.

Maytag Quiet Series 200 dishwasher doesn't clean well at office!


This is a very good dishwasher,I get calls on it for not cleaning all the time,but it usually ends up being a user issue because the manual doesn't go in depth enough on usage,First of all you have to use rinse aid in this unit or glasses won't come out looking clean,second you have to be aware of how much detergent goes into it because it's really easy to use too much.A good way to see if your using too much is too start a cycle without adding detergent let it fill and start to wash for about a minute then open the door,if it is full of suds your using too much,you can flush it out by starting a cycle(No detergent)and hitting the cancel drain button after about a minute several times in a row.then cut back the detergent by about a third on the next several loads and try the test again.
 If the film is chalky meaning you can wipe your finger across it and it comes off,too much detergent is most likely the cause.
 Also make sure the unit is getting hot water from the start of the cycle a good way to make sure is to run the water in a near by sink till it gets hot before starting the dishwasher.
 If you have really hard water you may need to run either some CLR (1/2 cup no dishes in unit)through it or one of the dishwasher cleaners made to remove calcium,lime and rust found in the dish soap isle...Hope this helps

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.


Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

Maytag Quiet Series 300/Dishwasher leaving gritty stuff on dishes


My model is simillar Cheri's. Every couple years I have to remove the plastic spray bars. They are held on by a simple torque screw. Once removed you will see debris plugging many of the holes. I have found this on all 4 of my spray bars. This debris prevents the right amount of water in the wash and rinse cycles. The upper spray bars seem to be the worse. This explains the trouble most folks have with glasses in the upper rack. Also check the docking station. You will fiind it along the back wall of your unit. The plastic tubes on the backside of each rack will slide into a hole in the docking station. After a few years the rubber seal in the docking station will be worn away. Once this happens, it prevents the correct water pressure to the upper rack. The replacement part snaps into place and cost about $25.
