Not cleaning properly

Hi,

The dishwasher seems to run OK but when finished the dishes have debris scattered over them. I have tried cleaning the filter but this hasn't helped. There is also quite a bit of water in the bottom when it's finished - it comes to the top of the filter well - I don't know if this is normal?

Help appreciated.

Sam

It sounds like the dishwasher is not completely draining... this leaves particulates floating in the water and is redispersed during the next cycle.

If it were me, I'd consider taking apart the bottom rotating sprayer and the plastics that cover the draining impeller (or pump). My guess is that contains a large amount of debris which should be cleaned out. If that isn't the case, check the pump itself. Something might be in there preventing it from working, or may have damaged it in a previous cycle (ie: chicken bone). Any screens or traps should be completely clean. If you use powdered detergent, there might be a buildup of solidified detergent preventing things from working properly and will need to be cleaned. If you use powdered detergent, consider switching to liquid as it tends not to solidify.

Let me know how it goes. Please rate accordingly.

Dishes on top are not getting clean


I would check the sprayer air mechanism. It may not be lining up properly when the top rack is engaged. It also may be full of debris. You can try running the dishwasher empty with a cup of vinegar.

Dishes not coming out clean


Hello

There are some things you can try, however, if your Maytag dishwasher is not getting your dishes as clean as you would like. Maytag recommends several processes for fixing this issue with your dishwasher.


Do not run your Maytag dishwasher while hot water is being used in other parts of your home, such as washing clothes or showering. Hot water is needed for your Maytag dishwasher to properly clean dishes.


Run water in the sink in your kitchen until it gets very hot. Then, turn on your Maytag dishwasher. This will ensure that the water cleaning your dishes is the hottest possible temperature.


Clean your Maytag dishwasher to improve the cleaning results for dishes. Run your dishwasher on a short wash cycle and wait for it to fill up with water. Stop the cycle and add about 1/3 of a cup of rust remover to the dishwasher and finish the cycle. Run your Maytag dishwasher through one normal cycle with regular detergent to finish the cleaning process.


Check your detergent. Old detergent or those that have been exposed to moisture can be clumpy. This detergent will not clean your dishes as well when loaded into your Maytag dishwasher. Purchase fresh detergent.


Use extra detergent when washing dishes that have a lot of built-up grease or food particles. The extra amount of detergent is needed to get your dishes clean. Choose a long cleaning cycle to clean these dishes.


Fill your Maytag dishwasher properly. Dishes should not be stacked on top of each other or excessively crammed into your dishwasher. This will keep the dishwasher from adequately cleaning all areas of your dishes and from rinsing them thoroughly.

It is just not cleaning the dishes. Runs - OK


Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

Dishes are not rinsing completely.why? th cycle seems to be finishing, but the dishes are not rrinsed properly. Do I ned a repairman?


First perform a vinegar cycle wash in the dishwasher. Pour a cup of vinegar into the bottom of the dishwasher. Keep the temperature at the highest setting possible and perform a wash cycle.Then start using a dishwasher most probably that would solve the problem. If this does not solve the problem then there must be some parts worn out or faulty creating the problem.

There are many probable causes of failure .

To clean the dishes the water temperature is essential.It the water is not hot then the dishes will not be cleaned properly.So check the water temperature.

Also check the filter in your dishwasher.Clean the filter if there is accumulation of debris in the filter

If you are in an hard water zone , then try reducing the amount of detergent used and then try cleaning the dishes.
