My Maytag dishwasher (MDB955AWS) will not drain ans is not cleaning the dishes properly.


Hi


If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound. If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve.

Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete.
Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.

The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Dishwasher does not fill completely with water. The vavle is clean and looks to work properly.


Check the inlet water pressure. Clean the strainer attached to the hose near the machine body. The knob can be turned by hand and remove the filter for cleaning. Filter is a small piece pushed in and kept in the plastic pipe submerged, where you removed the knob.

Lastly check the level switch or pressure switch attached to the m/c tub.

I have an Electrolux Dishlex DX303 Dishwasher. Recently it has been stopping early in the cycle and the display shows -10. The selected program is flashing. The cycle will restart by pressing the program...


hi peter, according to manual book -10 is not filling water fast enough. check inlet hose and valve, check pressure switch and pressure SW hose and clean sump filter which located bottom of tub that plastic strainer and stainless mesh clean them spotless. sometimes caused by this filter block the water passage and change pressure sw's leadings. and clean sump as well. b4 suspect PCB this filter cause many problem like not heating water, doesn't keep water. if dirty filter is the one you will save at least $300- for service man to come out and change the PCB for nothing. I think clean the filter doesn't hurt anyone.

Hi, My Dishlex dishwasher DX 302WB ia showing 10


check this

1)blockage in boiler tank.(cleaned)
2)water pressure is less.(check solenoid filter)
if it's programmed in timer mode within the period it must reach the water level in the tank due to this also it may happen.

I have a dishlex Global 500 which runs for 3-5 minutes then displays nF


nf= not filling. check inlet vale, or fault will be with pressure switch. If you have poor water pressure, you may need to increase the fill time- insructions can be downloaded from:www.electrolux.com.au, click on "customer service", then "download manuals", then Dishwashers-semi integrated, electronic, then download Dishlex Global Part 1 and Part 2.
Information on setting fill time can be found at the back of Part 2, but Part 1 has a list of the fault codes

Dishlex Global 300 Dishwasher


Thomo, make sure the sprayer holes in the spray arms are clean. Grains of rice seem to be a dishwashers biggest enemy as they don't desolve and eventually end up lodged in the spray holes. The holes at the end of the spray arms are the ones responsible for the washing out of the soap powder from the dispenser, if they are blocked this does not happen.
Hope this helps
Cheers
