There are some things you can try, however, if your Maytag dishwasher is not getting your dishes as clean as you would like. Maytag recommends several processes for fixing this issue with your dishwasher.
Do not run your Maytag dishwasher while hot water is being used in other parts of your home, such as washing clothes or showering. Hot water is needed for your Maytag dishwasher to properly clean dishes.
Run water in the sink in your kitchen until it gets very hot. Then, turn on your Maytag dishwasher. This will ensure that the water cleaning your dishes is the hottest possible temperature.
Clean your Maytag dishwasher to improve the cleaning results for dishes. Run your dishwasher on a short wash cycle and wait for it to fill up with water. Stop the cycle and add about 1/3 of a cup of rust remover to the dishwasher and finish the cycle. Run your Maytag dishwasher through one normal cycle with regular detergent to finish the cleaning process.
Check your detergent. Old detergent or those that have been exposed to moisture can be clumpy. This detergent will not clean your dishes as well when loaded into your Maytag dishwasher. Purchase fresh detergent.
Use extra detergent when washing dishes that have a lot of built-up grease or food particles. The extra amount of detergent is needed to get your dishes clean. Choose a long cleaning cycle to clean these dishes.
Fill your Maytag dishwasher properly. Dishes should not be stacked on top of each other or excessively crammed into your dishwasher. This will keep the dishwasher from adequately cleaning all areas of your dishes and from rinsing them thoroughly.
Pl check the over-head tank of your premises. Clean the tank.
Alternatively you can install a master filter in a accessable level( height ) for the easy cleaning. There are no self cleaning systems. If the filter is removed it will go and clog the out-let valve and you will end up in more maintenance cost.
Hi, The mesh does not open. You will need to GENTLY clean each section with running water. Are you using powder or liquid soap? The most common thing that plugs them is food particles. This unit is best served by pre-rinsing the dishes. The mess gets plugged to easily. I hope this helps.
You need to clean your particle screen under the heating element. It is found at the bottom center of the washer under the heating coil. It is usually a plastic mesh screen and sometimes are removable. This needs to be cleaned really good about every 2 months. This will stop the problem with the suds. Good Luck This Should Help!
By the way I see that you soap won't dissolve this is not because of water temperature it is that the jets in the washer arm are clogged. You need to clean these one by one with a small cleaning device and brush. When these clog the jets of water don't come out with any force they just trickle. Clean the jets(on the arm that spins at the top and bottom of the washer and your screen and it will be like having a brand new washer.
Hi I checked the manual on line. Here's what it said.
Dishwasher has an odor
Run dishes being held in the dishwasher through a Rinse Only cycle. • Many dishwashers have a “new” smell when first installed. This will dissipate with use. • Dishwasher may not be draining properly. (See “Dishwasher Will Not Drain” section.) • For a strong odor, place baking soda in both sides of the detergent cup. Select Light Wash cycle and allow the water to circulate for about 10 minutes. Interrupt the cycle by unlatching the door and let it stand overnight. Restart the dishwasher by latching the door and allow it to complete the cycle. Another alternative is to use a dishwasher cleaning product such as Jet-Dry Dishwasher Cleaner*.
