Question about Maytag Dishwashers
Problems associated with water from the kitchen sink back filling into the dishwasher are caused by the drain line on the dishwasher not having a high end loop. In simple terms, the dishwasher line is too low and is providing a path for the water to flow in the wrong direction. Reposition the drain line so that it loops just above the sink drain. Then, anchor it to the wall so that it does not move. This will provide and air gap and creates just enough resistance to keep the sink water from entering the dishwasher. I have included a link to a webpage that illustrates what I am referring to:
If you have any further questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: If you are experiencing problems with the sink draining as well, then you may have a plumbing releated issue.

Your dishwasher drains into the garbage disposal. It you tried to use a plunger to clear your clogged sink or run the disposal with to much junk in it you may have force debris into the dishwasher drain hose. With both the dishwasher and garbage disposal disconnect from power disconnect the dishwasher drain hose from the garbage disposal. This is usually about a one inch black hose. Clear out any debris in the hose and inlet nipple on the garbage disposal. If debris is compacted far down the hose it will need to be disconnected from the dishwasher end and remove to clear the blockage.
