Its probably leaving water in it and is clogged in the elecric pum or drain hose. somethins the pump has a rubber flap that will become lodged in the outlet port. this will cause dirty water to be left in the machine because of a slow drain. start by looking at the volume of water coming into garbage disposal where drain hose hooks up.

It sounds like you have a faulty float switch. It's cutting off the water inlet before the tub is full.

You have debris down in the pump area. To get to the problem you will work from inside the dish washer and start by removing the spray arm and then using torx driver you will need to remove upper components of the pump/motro assembly to get to the debris. good luck

Dishes on the top rack not cleaning properly


Had similar problem with our Maytag dishwasher--we removed all spray and screen components to the inner case, cleaned the intake screen below the lower spray arm, repaired a split upper spray arm, and inspected everything for cracks or other distortion. All of this helped some, but finally improved things by changing from liquid detergent to a "packet" type. Our water is somewhat hard and builds deposits on the screen at the bottom. Run a no-dish cycle with a cup of white vinegar in the bottom.

Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem


This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.

Normally when you have low water pressure and/or cleaning issues, this an indication of a clog in your main wash pump. You will need to remove the lower spray arm and the coarse screen to get to the main wash pump sump. Inspect the impeller area of the pump. This area is usually where accumulations of debris collect and keep the pump from pulling enough water. Things like orange seeds, lemon seeds, bottle cap liners, chicken bones, and jar labels are just a few of the items I have personally found. Although, dishwashers do a good job at removing most food particles, they are not garbage disposals. I bet you will find a clog in the sump somewhere. Let me know if this helps.
