SOURCE: cleaning out dishwasher

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*.

Good Luck

SOURCE: dishwasher had a burning smell and smoke was coming out

If the smoke was coming from inside the dishwasher... A common problem is a plastic item , utensil etc has fallen down onto the heating element. During the drying cycle this could possibly melt the plastic and generate some smoke.

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

SOURCE: bad smell from my samsung dmr77lhs dishwasher what to do?

Put about three or four drops of eucalypt oil into your dishwasher and put it on a wash cycle - you don't need to use the drying cycle. Then is should smell beautifully. It's probably just the newness of the machine with seals and parts all giving off the smell. If that doesn't work contact the dealer and get them to find out what it is. After all you paid good money for it.
Good Luck

Vacuum Belt keep breaking


When your first belt burnt, the burnt plastics goes into the roller ends and then it dries off causing your roller to not turn or put more pressure on your belt. Until you clean that you will continue burning your belts soon after you put them in. You need to add a little bit of WD40 or any other type of lubricant after you remove the tar from the roller.

Ink smudging off paper


It means that the fuser is not hot enough to bond the toner to the paper. You should open the rear door and see if a paper has wrapped around the fuser roller, as when the temp is actually too cool it will shut down the printer. Photo paper is also too thick to be used in this printer and you should only be using standard bond paper.

My Maytag Neptune TL has a moldy smell that I can't seem to get rid of. I've used a steam cleaner to blast away mold I've found around the rim and other parts I can reach, and I've run cycles of just hot...


Take off the round agitators one at a time, by popping off the center cap and use a hex driver to remove the screw. Tilt out aggitator, and clean back of agitator, hyousing and gear box of the moldy/mildew build up..its kinda gross. That is where the stink comes from.

I have a 1E error code. Water supply is good to the machine. Not sure how to get to the filters. Don't want to break anything.


Ok found the filter in the front of machine, lower left hand corner. It was clean. Proceeded to remove front panel. But first turn of the power and I also turned of the water. Now I found that the wires from the wiring harness had imbedded themselves in the sound profing material. Its like a black thick tar. I guess during the drying cycle the tar heats up and the wires settle into the goo. As the door is opened and closed the wires are put under stress because they are now one with the door. I found a blue wire had broken. I soldered the wire and taped it. I also put waxed paper behind the wires to keep them from hooking up to the tar again. I will check that fix after a couple of months to see how the paper is faring. The machine works perfectly once again.
