    I have the same dishwaser. I noticed the black residue on the clean dishes.also anwhen I checked I saw the bottom of the door seal breaking down, melting so as the seal around the center filter. I was washing in high temperature always. This started after 5-6 mo. What causing the seal melt? The dishwasher is designed for 160 F hot water than why is melting?

    Hi,
    Do you live in a city or Boro that has chlorinated water????
    The chlorine will breakdown theseal and make it look like it is melting....

    No, I am in Los Angeles. I am very disapointed of this Maytag dishwasher. The old one was good for more than 13-15 years, also Maytag. This one started to break 1 week after the warrantee. I have to wash the dishes before I put in!
    I will change the door seal tromorow but I am not sure how long will last. The sticky black rubber I tried to clean out today but very difficuly between the filterblades etc. Is anybody else has the same nightmare?

    If you are in LA then you have chlorinated water and that is what is breaking down the seal...
    But as you are finding out... they don't make 'em like they use too...they make them to break, cause they make more on the parts then the new product it's self...
    Sorry but that is the reality of life in the 21st century...

  • zszugyi Mar 18, 2011

    I will see how long will last. What would you suggest to clean out the black inside? I also might need to change the rubber around the filters. I couldn't get the filter out and I did not get all between the blades. Thanks for your help. This one is too much even for the 21st century. I thought I got the best for almost a 1000 dollars. My mistake!

I have a maytag mdb8951aws dishwasher for the past 3 months of so I has not been cleaning the dishes worth a ****. Leave residue on then and a white film. Any ideas what may be wrong


Hi

If the water inlet valve is fine and it fills with water then the issue seems to be with the float switch assembly that is bad and should be replaced. Float assembly is found inside the dishwasher's tub, on the bottom. The water that fills the dishwasher lifts the float, and when it reaches a certain level, it acts as a trigger for the float switch. The float triggers the float switch to shut off, thereby shutting off the flow of water into the dishwasher. A defective switch may interfere with dishwasher's filling and/or draining ability. Use voltmeter to test the switch. Set the device to the ohms setting x 1. Take each probe and touch them to one switch terminal each. This should produce a reading of either zero or infinity. Continue to touch the probes to the terminals, and press down on the switch's button. The reading should change to the opposite extreme. If the switch fails either of these tests, you should replace it. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

My maytag dishwasher is not getting all the food particles off


I recommend check the following areas to address this issue.

Not enough water
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).

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

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

If you only fill one part of the soap cup, try adding soap to both parts.

Dishwasher won't clean properly anymore.


sounds like the hose is clogged... i used to fix these.
first check to make sure the drain inside of the dishwasher (located on the bottom usually towards the back) does not have food clogging the drain. if there is nothing there than its more than likely a hose underneath the dishwasher. make sure you turn the water off before trying to fix this.
