Question about Maytag Dishwashers

1 Answer

Does not wash dishes clean like it used to. I can't see any wear or rust or anything wrong. Before this fall, it has always done a good job. We are only here 7 months - winter season - so it's only had about half the work of a full timer.

I had a similar problem with my dishwasher. It has a built-in food chopper and after a couple of years use the screen plugged up. This had the effect of cutting down the water flow to the pump and therefore the washing jets were much less effective. The fix was to remove the lower rotor arm and the pre screen filter and simply clean and carefully reinstall the screen. There were no required parts and the dishwasher operated as if it were new again.

If you have an upper arm you should also check to make sure that the tube through which water flows to it as well as the arm itself is not clogged with paper or plastic.

Because you didn't state what model you have I do not know if this could be your problem or not.
