Question about Maytag Dishwashers

2 Answers

The door that releases the detergent in a Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus is not opening. The prewash side has openings that allow the detergent to dissolve, but the main wash side never opens preventing the dishes from getting washed thoroughly. Any ideas?

There is a spring mechanism that is located behind the flap, inside of the door of the dishwasher. You may have a spring broken in there. Take the plastic cover off the inside the door and examine

Carol,
This is a simple repair. Remove the screws around the outer door edge and separate the door. The dispenser is clipped into position with several screws. Remove the screws and push the dispenser through the door.You can purchase the part from the link below.

Maytag dishwasher jet Clean EQ Plus Leaks out the bottom of the front door on the right side!!!


First, examine the gasket around the door or dishwasher front for tears or holes. If the gasket looks good, the door may have been flexed during installation or while loading / unloading. Open the door half way and try to flex counter clockwise. This should straighten out the door and allow the seal to contact properly.

Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus - Lights flashing


either the control board or the control panel needs replacement. Most likely the latter. There is a possibility that both parts failed also. Usually water gets inside the touchpad, corroding and shorting the touchpad. Good luck

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.
