Maytag dishwasher won't drain..

Quiet series 100 model #MDB 5600 will wash but not drain. I do not even see where the drain is.. I don't want to start taking things apart until I talk to someone. I don't want to call a repair person and have them charge me $75 to pull a plug that I am not aware of. Please help

Maytag quiet series 200 dishwasher spray arms won't turn


Have you tried tighten the spray arms? They may have come lose at the fittings so need to be tightened up. You can normally tighten them with your hand. Take any traps/filters out of the dishwasher and clean them.

My Maytag Qriet Series 100 Dishwasher won't drain


Check the drain hose connection at the sink drain for local blockage. If ok, you may have to tear down the lower spray arm assembly down to the deck (noting orientation and position as you remove parts). Look for clogged screens and clogged openings in the deck. You can use a vacuum hooked to 'blow' to make sure these openings are clear. Wash the screens in hot water, detergent, and white vinegar to remove water and food deposits. Make sure upper and lower spray arms have open spray holes and no split seams. Hope this gets you running again!

Maytag Quiet Series 100, Model # MDB5600AWS, built in dishwasher. Does not get the dishes clean, dishes stay dirty after multiple cycles of washing. Please help!


We also have a Quiet series 100 and had the same problem, the dishes always came out dingy or with food all over them. My washer is about 5 years old and worked well for about 4 of them but the last year has been doing a poorer and poorer job washing the dishes. I finally broke down and removed the racks and all of the plastic parts from the inside of the washer. Doing this revealed that the groves in the under side of most of the plastic parts was clogged with food and debris. After a good scrubbing with water and a brush then reassembly it worked like a new washer again, cleaning the dishes very well and the best part is it saved us about $700.00 for another washer.

Water does not drain completely, mostly but not completely and just stays there Maytag Quiet Series 100


If the machine has a auto sensor or auto clean cycle it is supposed to keep water in the bottom. The sensor has to stay wet for it to work properly. My Maytag drains, then fills slightly to do this.
