Steps:
1)Empty the dishwasher.Remove all dishes including pots,pans and silverware.
2)Pull the bottom rack out as far as possible.The filters are under the basket on the Maytag dishwashers.It may be convenient to lift the rack out.Typically,if you lift,the wheels leave the track.
3)Remove the Coarse" filter.This filter is a small,round knob in the middle of the Fine filter.A round knob is around the Coarse filter.Hold on to the handle and lift straight up.
4)Knock the contents of the Coarse filter into the garbage can.Run the faucet to remove smaller particles.Wipe the dishwasher filter with the sink sponge.Push back into the filter holder when complete.
5)Take out the Fine filter.Turn the round knob that is around the Coarse filter counter-clockwise.Once the knob is loose pull up.The Fine filter will come out of the dishwasher.
6)Rinse the Fine filter with the hot water faucet.Scrub with the sink sponge to remove any stuck-on fragments.Replace the filter into the dishwasher.Push down and turn the knob clockwise to tighten.

SOURCE: Glasses are not clean, come out cloudy

When the glassware comes out with a film on them (cloudy) the most common problem is a failed heating element. When it is repaired, the wash water will be heated to the proper temp to activate the dishwasher powder/detergent.

Please report back here what you find. OK?

SOURCE: residue and small particles left in upper rack

Hi,

Probably a blocked spray arm. Remove the top spray arm and check and clean all the holes as this is where the water sprays out from to clean the dishes and glasses. When they are blocked you get poor wash results.

Yes there will also be a filter in the base of the unit to clean. This needs to be done regularly to avoid food getting into the working parts of the unit.

SOURCE: My dishwasher does not clean. Food particles are

Yes.
The filter is located at the base of the unit.
Usually it has something to grab onto - just pull it straight up and out.
There may be a stainless steel grating and an inner fine filter to remove as well.

Empty contents into the bin, and clean all of these parts in the sink.
Then replace.

How to remove large food particle trap in a electrolux dishwasher model # EWDW6505GBO


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to remove large food particles that are trapped in your Electrolux dishwasher, model# EWDW6505GB0. First, I would suggest that you scrape away large pieces of food before putting any dish in your dishwasher.

Your dishwasher is equipped with a state of the art wash system. Periodically, the Glass Trap Filter and Large Food Particle Trap may need to be cleaned to maximize wash performance. The Glass Trap Filter is located in the center of the Large Food Particle Trap. The Glass Trap Filter is designed to collect pieces of broken glass, straws, bones and pits. To remove items in the Glass Trap Filter, grasp the handle, lift out, empty and replace. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Asko dishwasher D5233 -- food particles left on glasses after wash


Your best bet is to clean the wash arms and drain filters at the base of the dishwasher. If this makes no difference then it is likely the diverter valve is not functioning and causes the drain water to mix with wash/ rinse water.

There should be a filter in the bottom under the spray arm. There should be 4 to 8 screws to remove to get to the filter, and clean.

If you can find a hose that will fit the water line you can flush it out. But the most likely problem is that the filter that you bought was defective and the white particles are coming for it. If you can test it without the filter, to see if the water is clear or not, will tell you whether you should take the filter back and complain.

Black line appears in copying from Konica Bizhub 200


If the black line appears ONLY when copying and NOT when printing then you need to clean the adf strip glass. This is the thin strip of glass that is just to the left of the large original glass. Clean this glass very well with a soft cloth and glass cleaner. The line is caused by a small particle stuck to this strip of glass.
Good Luck and Thank You for using Fixya.
