Question about Dishwashers

Open Question

All I am looking for are the outside dimensions of Maytag DWU8240AAX. The machine is dead - worked valiantly for many years but has not been cleaning dishes well for a number of months and today has refused to be turned on. I need the dimensions to I can compare when buying a new dishwasher - make sure it (the new one) will fit into the under-counter space alloted for it. Thanks so much!

SOURCE: Kitchenaid, new dishwasher, stopped cleaning top rack dishes

The problem most people encounter with dishwashers is a simple inability to get the dishes clean. There might be stuck-on food or residue from the detergent. A water pressure problem may be the culprit. You may need to replace the water intake valve. Another common problem is mineral build-up. If your house has hard water, the mineral build-up can clog the water jets. Clear each jet with a wire or pin, and run an empty load with some vinegar in the detergent dispenser about once a month.

Sometimes, the dishwasher has problems draining properly. There could be a clog in the drain hose, or a problem with the pump. It's also possible that the dishwater is getting too sudsy, and sensors in the washer aren't detecting the soap foam as water. This causes it to shut down the drain cycle too early. Just use less detergent.

SOURCE: Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

The problem is hard water. Go to www.dishwasherfilter.com and get their new product. It filters the water and takes out the hard minerals that cause spots and clog dishwashers. It is very affordable and has a money back guarantee.

Maytag dishwasher leak


If it's leaking from the door, a new gasket may fix this. If it's leaking from the pump, the seal is worn out, and the repair may be too costly or difficult. If the unit is 5 years old, consider a replacement.

Why does my water no come on in the morning when the programmer is asking it too and does in the evening.


Check the time clock is accurate.
If this is a condenser boiler [it has two water pipes to the outside] check that the pipe from the condenser is not blocked with ice, if so heat with a heat drier

We got our maytag 300 quiet series about 3 years ago from home depot. about a year ago the option buttons/lights on the right side went dead. It was out of warranty and still worked so i ignored it. Now...


Our Maytag dishwasher (an earlier model) quit too. Found that the door latch operates two micro-switches which supply power to the machine and one of the switches no longer made contact when operated. The switch pair and the plastic latch parts are sold as a package for about $15 on the internet. A number of lights in the door are held in place by a small colored lens for each light and the lenses have disintegrated leaving the lights to hang by the wires inside the door cavity. Plan to use contact cement to glue the lights in place. I don't know if this will help you, but it doesn't take long to open the door cavity. Make sure to remove power to the machine before opening it up.
