Question about Kenmore 24 in. 15199 / 15194 / 15192 Built-in Dishwasher

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400. Dishes have hard stuck on grit and food particles after rinsed and dried.

Maytag dishwasher quiet series 400 Model MDB7601AWW. Dishes have hard, stuck on grit and food particles, after rinsed and dried. This came up all of a sudden after running fine for two years. I have done all of the troubleshooting solutions like checking water temperatures, etc. The top rack seems to be the worst. Please give me some ideas of what else to try. I'm having to soak and wash dishes twice, help!

    Same here, although we only lasted about 6 weeks before experiencing stuck on grit, but most times the dishes came out fine...now it is grit all the time.

    Is there a 'water saver' restrictor somewhere in the plumbing? We are on a well but we have lots of pressure.

    Same problem after 6 weeks of use. Intermittent at first now we have dried on grit every time.

    Is there a 'water saver' restrictor in the plumbing. We are on well and septic and even though we have lots of pressure I wonder if it is not getting enough water during the rinse cycle.

Very common problem is soap build up in these machines. Try putting it into a wash cycle with no dishes, and no soap. Let it wash for about 5 minutes, and then open the door. If you see alot of soap suds, then soap build up is the problem. Try doing a couple loads with no soap, and no dishes, and throw a cup of vinegar into the machine halfway through the wash. Repeat as necessary. This should solve your problem.

SOURCE: Kenmore elite dishwasher leaves food particles on dishes

If someone is putting dishes in the washer and obstructing the spray ams that would cause food to stay on dishes. After loading dishwasher and pushing in baskets make sure the spray arm doesnt hit any of the dishes causing them to not clean properly. If that doesnt work or is definately not your problem try removing the spray arm and seeing if it has food inside of it. Some times they get food build up in them and need to be flushed out.

There is food and grit stuck to my glasses. Where is this coming from? I am rinsing all the dishes before I put them in , so it must be in the dishwasher somewhere,


We used to have this problem with a Kenmore that had a built-in "garbage disposal"--it was a little blade that ground up larger food particles. Occasionally a cherry or olive pit would get inside and dull, chip or break the blade, and the symptom was food particles on the dishes. The solution was to replace the grinder.

Dishwasher deposits dirt on dishes. Grit, small particles.


I have the same problem. We cleaned the dishwasher out because the grit was coming from the dishwasher...however, we still have dirt/grit in our dishes, but a lot less. How do we get rid of this all together?

I have a Maytag Quiet Series 400 and I can't get it to run on Normal,lite or other. I get a code 82 that appears. What does this mean?


My Maytag quiet 400 series is doing the same thing-buttons aren't responding or working. And now a second problem...it has become very loud and sounds like it is chewing up all the dishes.
