It is not cleaning dishes, it leaves food residue on dishes and deposits small bits to other dishes especially on glasses.


If there is not enough water, the dishes would not get cleaned. This could be caused by a partially closed water shut-off valve (located under the sink), or a faulty dishwasher water valve (located at the bottom of the dishwasher, behind the kick panel, on either side).

Also, There is usually two, sometimes three spray arms in a dishwasher. Make sure there is no debris blocking the holes inside each spray arm.

**Water temperature Note***

To get the best results, the water has to be at 120 degrees Fahrenheit when entering the dishwasher.

Food residue on all dishes


The filter systems on the Maytag line of dishwashers which includes Jenn Air is very fine. In most causes the pump needs to be torn down and washed in a sink and a shop vac is also a great tool I use to clean the rest of the pump out that will actually stay in the dishwasher. The spray arms also need to be cleaned in the sink. Check your drain line under your sink as well and make sure that the drain line coming from the dishwasher has a high arch or bend that is higher than the base of the sink. This will prevent sink water from backing up in the dishwasher which can be nasty. Also make sure to run your hot water to the sink before starting a cycle to assure hot fills and the water temp. is best if set at 130 degrees on your water heater instead of 120 or 125 degrees. I hope this is helpful. This kind of problem can be agrivating to solve at times. Scott (North Caolina)
