Bosch silence plus 50dba not washing dishes! using Jet dry, recently cleaned the screen. any other troubleshooting ideas? ThNk you!


Check to make sure the spinner washing parts are loose and spinning. You can turn them by hand. Many times plates are too tall and block the washing arms from spinning. Push all the baskets in and look into machine and spin the arms. If that's not it then it's somehhing rlectronic that's not taking the machine thru the cycles.

Kenmore agitates doenst spin


You will have to look at the inside of the washer when in spin cycle to see what is going on. Is the spinner motor not engaging the drum? Is the spinner working at all? It sounds like the spinner isn't being moved against the drum before the spin cycle starts. Most washers use a seperate spinner motor, which is lifted off the drum by a relay and / or solenoid and if one or more of those is malfunctioning, it will cause your described problem.

Dish not realy not clean leves film on them same soap as alwayes


Hi. Check that the arms are spinning. Something maybe jamming arms like a knife or fork sticking below the basket hitting arm or check that the jets, particularly the end jets are not blocked. Easiest way to check if spinning is to rotate arms into a known position and start a cycle with dishes in machine. After say 1 minute open door and see if arms have rotated. Cheers. Slavious

DISHES ON TOP RACK ARE NOT GETTING CLEAN TOP SPINNER NOT SPINNING POSSIBLY NOT ENOUGH WATER PRESSURE?


It would help if you provided the make and model of the dishwasher.
Most likely cause of not getting enough water pressure to top rack is the water diverter may be faulty.

Depending on the model - it is a small ball floating in a vertical channel which alternately opens and closes the bottom and top water inlets to the spray arms. Check part at Repair Clinic after selecting make & model of your dishwasher.

Not getting dishes clean


Hard to believe but you have to clean the dishwasher. There are various screens and baskets down in the bottom of the dishwasher. Take out the rolling bottom dish rack and you will find the first layer of filter there. Usually there is a handle on it lift or turn and lift that whole rig out and wash the basket and all the filters. There even may be a second layer of filter below that. Then check down in the the very bottom for chunks of stuff or even broken glass. Now the spinner. There is a spinning water sprayer that can also get gunk stuck inside it.. I found rice in mine. There should be a click lock or some kind of release tabs on the side of the shaft. remove that sprayer and look closely at the water jets to see if stuff is in there. run some water thru it too make sure the jets are open. lastly.. you must run the dish washer every day. if you leave them there over night you will need a jack hammer to remove the dried food. Some dried food like egg yolk will never come off in a dish washer.

Make sure that the spray bar when lifted by the water pressure is NOT hitting the dish rack OR has excessive friction. Test by manually lifting and turning.

Also the jets must exit at an angle to provide the torque.

Clean on bottom rack but dirty on top


Clean the filter at the bottom of the tub. If it is dirty or clogged the water pressure may not be strong enough to spin the top arm. Make sure also the there is nothing blocking the holes of the spinner arm. If the filter and arm are clear then the pump may be failing.

Wash Arms not spinning --Dishes not clean


Without the model number of your Maytag number, I can not determine if when you order a wash pump motor you also get the impeller.
Sounds like you are on the right path to getting your dishwasher to wash dishes again.
Oh, while you have the dishwasher open, check that the heating element has not failed using a Multimeter.

Good Luck!
