    Grinding noise is going on all the time when its washing arms rotating. But

    the noise comes from buttom right. The result is not good. Some dishes not clean. I thought washing arm is stuck causing motor trying hard. I

    open the door quickly to see arm location. It looks like it is changing, which means it still is rotating.

    exact problem when starts up..what to do?

  • Anonymous Jun 01, 2008

    Same problem, just started today 6/1/08.

  • Anonymous Jun 01, 2008

    I had the same problem and it started today 6/1/08 - 1.5 yrs after its purchase. Here's what I did: I opened and closed and restarted the dishwasher twice - the low frequency growling noise persisted. Then the third time I stopped the washer, I noticed that the rinse agent wasn't being used up as fast as in the past - I opened the rinse agent filler cap and noticed a slight sucking noise as I opened the filler cap. I closed the washer and restarted it. The noise was still there. Opened the washer again, opened the filler cap, moved the rinse agent release pointer from 1 to max, closed the filler cap, closed and restarted the washer - no more low frequency growl. Is it the solution? - I dont know, maybe just coincidence, but didnt cost anything to try.

    I have a grinding sound when I start my dishwasher (maytag quiet series 200). I don't know how to disconnect the bottom to clean it out. There are no screws to take out just. Does anyone have a manual or experience to help me clean this out

If the rinse cap fix does not work,I have done something else to remedy the problem.What I found is that it is cavitation in the pump due to lack of water.What I did is very simple.First take the covers off at the bottom of the diswasher.Next pull off the float pin switch.It is located at the right-front on the bottom.Take two pair of pliers and just bend the metal trigger down a bit on the pin switch.This will allow more water to enter the washer on fill up eliminating the problem.Saves a service charge too!

I had the same problem with my Maytag Quiet Series 1 dishwasher until I read the comment left by the guest on June 1, 2008. I tried his suggestion about the rinse cap adjustment and WOW it WORKED. No more growling noise. Thanks you saved me a service call.

I had a grinding sound every time I ran the dishwasher.  I removed the bottom part of the dishwasher until I got to the rotating blade.  I found a piece of plastic that had come off of a piece of tupperware-like container.  Once removed, grinding sound dissappeared.

    Sometimes the water jets towards the end of the wand that are angled (the angled water propels the wand around) can get filled with gunk. Clear them out with a pick of some kind. Sometimes takes a few tries, but the wand should start rotating again.

    Run some vinegar through the machine - or run something like CLR - which will help clear detergent build up in the machine.

Sounds like the thermal cut out in the motor is opersting. You mist see if the transmission turns freely
  • if it does then a new motor may be needed.
  • if not then there is a transmission fault
  • Then try a new machine.....

Check the Lid switch. Most top load machines will not spin unless the lid is down and this is determined by the lid switch.

I have a maytag quietseries 200 dishwasher. The door handle seems to be broken. Can this be fixed or does it have to be replaced and where would I get the part?


It can be fixed, and very likely by YOU.
Examine the handle and see if you can remove it- always a good exercise prior to the following:
Collect the model and serial number from the unit, and find an actual "appliance parts" business (not appliance repair, though that would be second choice) and ask what such a handle would cost.
I'd guess you can get it done for less than $30.

My Maytag QuietSeries 200 dishwasher appears to be leaking from the centre of the bottom of the unit. Why?


Have you tried to clean around the door seal.
Is the water coming from inside the machine, can you tell?

Maytag Quiet Series dishwasher won't start


Sounds like you have a bad Control Board

http://www.partstore.com/Part/Maytag/Maytag/MDB6600AWW/Maytag/Maytag/99003160/New.aspx

But with the price it cost, you might be better off buying a new dishwasher, preferably a different brand, cause that washer has some bad reviews

Grinding noise for maytag quietseries 200 usually when it first starts up Our Maytag Quiet Series 300 just started with the same thing. We have had it a little over 2 years. We thought maybe it was the...


It may sound loud and like something is terrably wrong - but when we researched and took the pieces of the sprayer arm out all the way down to the drain - we found 2 small pieces of nut shells - that's it ! They were making the dishwasher sound as if it had something really wrong with it. We removed the nut shells - put all the parts back together - it runs perfect!! Just remember to place the parts and screws in the order they came out - so you put it back together correctly

The dishwasher lights are all blinking, it starts randomly, like one in every 50 times you press the buttons. I have unplugged it to reset several times. Nothing is working. I'm looking for a solution to blinking lights and it not starting. is there any other way to reset the controls????
