Electrolux professional series not pumping water


Two things to consider....clean water or dirty water?

Clean water usually indicates the fill valve is not shutting off all the way and the fill valve is "weeping" water in all the time = new fill valve time!!

Dirty water usually is not a dishwasher problem but more of a plumbing issue. Often the sink drain that carries the sinks water outside is not fast enough and some of this sink water is backing up into the drain hose and filling up the dishwasher through the drain hose. The drain from the sink to outside needs attention as this type of a problem indicates a slow house drain for that sink.

The dishwasher drain line should be clamped to the top underneath part of the counter before entering the sink drain plumbing, this may help the water from coming back inside the dishwasher.

Dishwasher drain pump flapper (inlet side)


My Quiet Series does the same thing and I wondered if the orange flapper has gone bad and lets the dirty water drain back from the hose sloping up to the garbage disposal. Did you get an answer to this question? The dishwasher seemed to work fine and then it suddenly started leaving food particles on the glasses.

Used the dishwasher last night and when I emptied it this morning, there was a pool of dirty water standing in the bottom


Your pump is clogged. You must disconnect the power and the drain hose and water feed pipe. Pull the dw out and lay it on its back to access the pump.

Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty


A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.
