Question about Maytag MDB7100AWB Dishwasher
If the model number is correct, this model dishwasher has a cutter blade that is used to beat or chop up coarse food deposits into fine particles to make it easier for the dishwasher to drain them. If you go to pcappliancerepair.com and look under the "Pump and Motor Parts" section, you will see it listed as item 18 in the parts index.
With that said, these chopping assemblies are NOT garbage disposals! This does not imply that you can place anything in the dishwasher and expect it to be chopped and disposed of. There are certain things that should NOT be placed in a dishwasher. Here's a short list of items that I have found that will clog the pump and drain assemblies:
Basically, anything that is stringy (like celery), has waxy skins (like certain beans), or otherwise cannot be chopped (like meat gristle and popcorn kernels) should not be placed in a dishwasher. Always refer to the owner/operator's manual for clarification.
If you have any additional questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.
