Likely the float valve is deformed and no longer seated on its micro switch. Remove the bottom kick plate and look for a flimsy white spike seated on a micro switch but bent out of its proper position. The float looks like an upside down cup located near the front left corner of the inside of the dishwasher. The shaft of the float is a skinny 1/8 inch flexible piece of plastic. It deforms routinely under the light weight of the cup and the heat accumulating below the dishwasher. You can reseat the shaft on the micro switch for a temporary fix. For a permanent fix try re-enforcing the shaft with aluminum tape and a long sewing needle. Keep the retrofit very light weight to avoid over weighting the micro switch. A jammed water level sensor float can cause either no water (your situation) or water overflowing onto the floor. Usually the overflow water flows around the shaft of the float and pours our from underneath the kick plate

When I run my dishwasher I find the soap cube lying in the bottom of the machine after the full run cycle and the dishes just get a rinse


Is it possible your dishwasher can't use soap cubes? I have seen powder and/or liquid specified.

Where is the rinse aid dispenser on a maytag performa?


Hello Chris.

The rinse aid dispenser is usually in the door right next to the soap cup, usually it has a round cap that you unscrew to refill. For me to be more specific reply with your model number as found on a label on the rim around the door and i will look up your exact model.

Put rinse liquid detergent in dishwasher rinse aid compartment.


I did the same thing with my Maytag dishwasher, several times actually, before realizing I was putting blue dish soap in the rinse aid compartment which then wouldn't empty. Then my Maytag started making ominous noises during the rinse cycle (appliance guy said it was "cavitation" noise).

Appliance guy wanted to replace the whole detergent/rinse aid compartment but since he told me the noise was probably caused by the dish soap stuck in the rinse aid compartment, I decided to try to get rid of it first. Here is the method that worked for me; it took most of a day but saved me parts & labor:

1. Get some white vinegar--I used nearly a quart.
2. Fill the rinse aid compartment to brim with the vinegar (overfill) but don't put cap on
3. Raise the dishwasher door slowly until the vinegar drains into the lower part of the chamber (at least this is how my Maytag worked)
4. Agitate the contents as best you can by rapidly shaking the dishwasher door up & down.
5. I also used a small plastic medicine dropper jammed into small openings on each side of the rinse aid compartment to agitate the vinegar by squeezing air into them.
6. Drain the compartment by closing the dishwasher door (move it to full vertical)--vinegar will drain into the bottom of the dishwasher.
7. Repeat above steps a couple times, then fill again w/vinegar, put the cap on and let it stand for awhile. Then drain and repeat the whole routine several times.
8. Blue-colored vinegar will come out which is a good sign (or whatever color your dish soap was).
9. After awhile, I started pouring generous amts of very hot tap water thru the rinse aid compartment, alternating with white vinegar. (No reason you can't use hot vinegar also.)
10. Eventually, all the blue stuff came out & the see-thru levels of the rinse aid compartment were completely clear/empty.
11. Run the dishwasher (I decided to not put any rinse aid in). I got some overfoaming (from the washed out soap) the first time I ran it which I probably could have remedied by adding more vinegar & possibly salt, but the noises were gone!
I just ran the cleaned out dishwasher a 2nd time & it was back to its quiet self with no overfoaming.

Takes some patience but hey, beats a big repair bill!!

Maytag Dishwasher Will Not Rinse


You are probably not getting enough water into the machine. Replace water inlet valve (solenoid valve) and this should solve the problem.
