Power Dry uses a little more electricity when drying but does a good job.

Temp Boost will raise the wash temperature to clean better, this uses very little extra energy and works well, it may add a little time to the cycle

Energy saver will not dry the dishes or boost the water as hot as needed to sanitize. It will save about 2 cents per load.

If you need plastics to dry always put them in the top rack and use the power dry. Use rinse aid to help with drying.

Model # dwu7702aae has heat delay light coming on during cycle. Why?


Heater is used to both heat water during clean cycle and dry dishes after wash cycle. Most washers have either a separate switch for Heat or Dry for optional use, or some have the water heat and dish dry options built into cycle set options.

You can save money by turning off the Dish Dry option since it is a very in-efficient way to dry dishes. Instead, open the wishwasher door after washing cycle completes, just enough so fresh air can get into, and humid air can escape, dishwasher.

Water Heat option is only needed for dried food on dishes, and is never needed if dishes are either rised off before putting them in the dishwasher, or rinsed off inside the dishwaser with a Rinse cycle, if they are to stand for a time waiting for a full dishwasher for wash.

Maytag portable dishwasher, dish racks are very rusted in 2 years


This is Maytags solution


Do the dishwasher racks have chips or scratches showing exposed metal underneath?
If minor rack repairs are needed, a dishwasher rack repair kit just might work. To review this product or purchase the kit, click here.
Should you purchase the kit online, enter Promo Code F9A75Q4 in the Review Order screen when you check out to receive a 10% discount on your order.
For more severe rack damage, a replacement rack may need to be purchased; call the Maytag Customer eXperience Center toll-free at 1-866-616-2601, Monday-Friday, 8AM-6PM, Eastern Time.

I would call the toll free number and see if a free replacement is available. If not at least try to get a big discount on replacing them.

Good luck and thanks for using Fix Ya, please take the time to rate this solution (from Fix Ya, not Maytag, I didn't like their solution).

Portable dishwasher


The first thing you might want to do is check the water pressure in the house. Ideal water pressure should be from 55psi to 75psi max. I have seen homes that had pressure around 125 psi which will cause pressure leaks in water heaters, softners, washer valves, r/o systems. Check to see that all, if any inlet screens are clear and free from any grit and sand. It's possible that your inlet water valve (wd10m0010) has become restricted. Other than that, the complete uncoupler hose assy. part number is wd24m0030. These parts are for the dishwasher model ending in gsc3400j00bb. They are the same for model number ending in 00ww. Good luck.
