Question about Maytag 24 in. MDB8750AWS Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

My dishwasher has no water entering the unit all of a sudden. it has worked fine up to last week. I run a load and everything is still dirty. I've checked the valves under the sink and they are fine. Is there anything inside the dishwasher that could be clogged or needs to be cleaned out of debris? Thanks.

Suggest the problem may be a plumbing issue - likely substantially blocked drain system, so the dirty wash water cannot properly pump out but rather remains in the dishwasher.

Suggest getting a plumber in to "snake" out your kitchen drain system. You will probably notice your sink drains will suddenly work much better too...

if the soap/detergent isn't completely rinsing out of dispenser, it sounds like water isn't directed the top spray-arm. possible a defective vario motor; as it directs water to the water channel that supplies water to the middle and upper spray arms.

Maytag Dishwasher MDBTT50AWB is not cleaning

The problem is hard water. There is a new product out called the dishwasher filtration system. It filters the water before it enters your dishwasher. It works amazing and has a money back guarantee. You will love the way your dishes look after the first load. It is also very affordable (like 70 bucks). Go to to find out more info.

My Hotpoint dishwashers water stopped turning on. It has worked fine in the past but all of the sudden no water, just hot/dirty dishes.

check that your float valve is not stuck in the upper position.This will stop water from entering machine.If it is not stuck( a utensil may be stuck under the float valve) then the float valve relay switch may be the problem The float valve is in the bottom back usually under the lower rack of dishwasher

Dishes will not get clean and rinsed...

You may just have hard water in your area. Has there been a drought where you live? If so, don't be frustrated any longer, that's it. Jusyt add some Dishwasher Magic (or one cup of Tang dry orange juice) to an empty unit and run through the whole cycle. This should help. Hope this helps and I hope your frustration is gone. :)

No power for my Siemans SL84A dishwasher

Not a solution but a cause for my DW having the same problem. One of the four wires going to the On/Off switch shorted and burned. I never lost power to the unit, as far as I know there is no reset button of fuse. I rewired the unit and ran several washes without overheating or shorting.

Noritz tankless water heater/dishwasher not hot enough to clean

You are doing everything you can. Your dishwasher probably isn't drawing enough hot water to activate the unit so opening the faucet and flowing more water will activate the unit. Just try to adjust the flow from the faucet to a point it, plus the draw from the dishwasher, will activate the unit. This will come with trial and error as I am sure you have already experienced. Also, open the dishwasher when it does get filled and check the water temperature. You might have the unit set at a low discharge temperature. Do you have a touchpad to control the water temperature adjustment?

Dishwasher turns on, doesn't fill, goes through dry cycle then dries dirty dishes

I have worked with Sears on a similiar symptom on my unit. I was using solid tablets in the soap dispenser. After running a wash everything was luke warm and dirty. After repeating a few test I found out my soap dispenser door was not opening properly. Sear confirmed it with their one of their better techs.

The problem with door in my case is that the assy is plastic and has poor tolerances. The front doors on these units are lightweight (cheaper) and do not remain plumb which causes the soap assy to see torqing by the door frame and cover.

If your out of warranty you can try to replace to soap assy or loosen the door panel hardware and try to make sure the soap door freely flips open manually and electrically.

It aint pretty, but until its fixed mix your detergent with a half gallon of hot tap water and pour into the tank before closing the door to start a load. The unit will not overfill as the float switch will work normally.

The backstory is: These newer models are not as robust as units 10 years ago. The goal to meet energy star qualifications of the EPA has forced these manufacturers to use less elec. to heat water in the unit. Your starting water temp is a function of several things; the distance from the water heater, the temp outside, and the setting on your water heater. Most replacement units going into older homes have a problem getting water temps of 135 degrees, which what Sears says is required for these units to clean well.

So you have a couple of choices to get there; 1. Let you sink hot water run until the temp is at it's max before starting a load, 2. install a localized water heater near the unit, 3. raise the temp on your water heater and use more electricity than the unit saves, or
4. disolve you detergent in hot water and pour it in before starting a load.

Choice no. 4 is what we have been doing and we do get a better wash quality. Ive been told by a factory person that even if my door opened properly, that unless the water temp is high enough, the phosphates in the soap just dont do their job and soap residue just builds up in the tank over time.

These units are fine, IF you can satisfy everything the factory requires of the installer and its not easy to realize water temp of 130+ degrees in alot of homes.

If your under extended warranty, Sears will replace the marginal door with another marginal door.

Hope this helps. Take care.
