Question about Maytag Dishwashers
Hello Pat. Generally, when the dishwasher does not completely drain there is a partial blockage somewhere between the drain pump near the floor under the dishwasher and the trap in the kitchen sink. The only way to clear the partial blockage is to disassemble the drain. Begin by removing the lower panel on the front bottom of the machine. For that job you will need a #2 phillips head screwdriver and a flash light.
Once the panel is off you will see the drain hose which goes through the side of the sink cabinet and heads down to the lower front of the dishwasher where it attaches to a small pump. Disconnect the drain line at that point, be prepared for the 2 cups of water that will flow out when the disconnection is done.
Unscrew the pump from the frame of the dishwasher so you can look inside of it where you may find the culprit, often a chunk of bone or glass. If the blockage is not in the pump, the next step is to disconnect the other end of the drain line so you can thoroughly check it by running water through it. Next, check inside of the garbage disposal if you have one, and then in the sink trap.
Once you have cleared the partial blockage reassemble everything. Problem solved. Joe
