Here is a tip that will help you with the onlinebuying...
Dishwasher SprayArms not Spinning
In order to remove the glass you will need to lift the top of the grinder off. To do that is a rather complicated procedure however and I would recomend that you have a repair service come to remove the glass. Attempting to do it yourself could damage the inside of the grinder and possibly make your dishwasher not work at all.
This is commonly caused by a turntable motor that has worn out and needs replaced.
The motor can be replaced by following these steps:
1. Unplug microwave. 2. Open oven door and remove glass tray and carousel ring. 3. Locate and remove the screws holding the bottom panel (under the microwave) in place. With the screws removed, the bottom panel should open. 4. Disconnect the connector plug from the turntable motor. 5. Reach inside the oven and remove the coupler. This is the small plastic piece that the center of the glass tray sits on. You may have to gently pry up with a flat screwdriver to get it to come loose. 6. With the coupler removed, loosen the mounting screw(s) to the motor and it should easily come out from under the oven. 7. Install new motor in the reverse order of the steps I just provided.
This is a very simple repair. If the model number you have this question listed under is correct, the part number for a replacement motor is WB26X10024. It sells for about $17 at searspartsdirect.com.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this help you.
First problem: The film on dishes and glasses. Try another detergent. Manufacturers removed all the phosphates from dishwasher detergents and there are many complaints. I have had good luck with Finish Quantium tabs. Also have purchased Cascade industrial from Sam\'s online (still has phosphates).
Other problems you are experiencing with the 300 I have also. within 18 months of ownership the control board went out twice. The lower rack rusted through, the silverware basket had the bottom fall out, the door latch broke, now the control board is going out for the third time. I am not hard on a dishwasher. I have had models last 25 years before.
My final fix for my Maytag 300--I have ordered a new dishwasher, it will be delivered Wednesday. It isn\'t a Maytag.
Try this before you decide your dishwasher is broken:
Go buy a box of brand name Dishwasher powder (e.g. Electrosol or Cascade) and use it. Re-evaluate after 2 loads of dishes. If problems continue, keep using the brand name powder but also:
With a screw driver. remove the filter shroud beneath the lower spray arm as far as possible (take pictures as you go) and rinse everything, including anything that looks like a mesh filter. Also, inspect all wash arms for blockages of any holes and clean them.
With a flashlight, find and remove all debris (watch out for broken glass!) Inspect the impeller for problems or not being tightly secured. Reassemble.
Test out. If problems continue and your dishes have a film on them, suspect that you heating element has failed. Replacing it will work wonders!
If problems continue, the problem is most likely a failing wash pump motor. If you replace it, your on you way.
This is a little strange, but you have to take the grill off that goes all the way across the top front of the microwave. Now, use a slot blade screwdriver to unscrew the two metal rods that go from the front to the back mounting plate. )one on each side of the oven) Microwave should not swing forward and down, allowing you to lift the unit off the back wall mounting plate. Watch out for possible exhaust vent restricting movement of micro forward and down also.
you can try to remove hte lower spary arm, and access the sump assy under the filter plate( torx 15) screws, and afterthe op is reved 2 mose screws underhter will gain oyou acesss to the choper/ screen area. make sure if claened out.after reaasembly it still has no pressure to spray arms you nned to repalca seal/ impeller kit for motor. 8531017. not to terrible difficult to install, you will need to remove the motor assy to do it though
