Maytag MDB6600AAW. Very Loud when washing, now door handle sticking

This machine seems to be loud then quiet when washing, but dishes comeout somewhat clean. We have very hard water. Also, now the door handle keeps sticking. Are these dishwashers plagued with problems and is there anything we can do about it?

When the unit is running it is normal that it is a little more quiet. I think what your hearing is in the drain cycle for the first 30 seconds it is quieter than the next 60 seconds. The reason is in the first 30 seconds the water is leaving the machine and muffels the sound of the pump, for the next 60 seconds the pump is turning but the water is for the most part gone and the pump is sucking air which is louder and is normal.

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.

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


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.

Loud humming noise when dishwasher is filling up with water


your model is pretty new. just so you know your warrenty is 1 year parts and labor. 2 years on parts. it should not cost that much money.

there are two components that start before the circulation pump.(wash noise you hear)

first sounds you hear will be the drain pump. usually rattling noises if something is in it but it can make a hum noise if something is jamming the drain propeller up. which is accessible with a T20 torx driver. take the filters out and the mesh filter. and unscrew the screw in the base towards the left. pull out whatever is lodged.

the other humming sound can come from the next component that activates is the watervalve. make sure you dont have a kinked water intake line. otherwise its a bad valve. i have had to change a few of those water valves out already but not for a hum noise on your model. you have a new style water valve. when brands make new parts we get problems fast sometimes..

Loud noise maytag dishwasher quiet series 100


Hi All,


I have had a Maytag Quite Series 300 for some years now and have done basttle with it on may occasions. I now consider myself somewhat of a veteran, although by no means a repair expert!


Grinding Noise: From either a clogged/blocked impeller or not enough water getting to the impeller.
For a clogged impeller, it is fairly easy to disassemble the washer to get at the impeller to remove any debris or blockages.
For not enough water it can be a number of things. First of all, you will notice that the noise lessens if you add a jug or two of extra water. This is because if the water level is too low, the pump impeller will get some air mixed with the water & this is LOUD! Now for the causes:
Float – If the float gets stuck in the wrong position (debris or water deposits), it will not fill enough.
Float Set Wrong – Seems thats some of these dishwashers have the float set a little too low to let the dishwasher perform without grinding. A few pennies attached to the float with a rubber band seems to help here. Don't go too far or you'll flood your kitchen!
Timer – Some folks have mentioned that dishwashers that fill on a timer will not fill enough in the allotted time, if the water pressure is low. While this is true, I have looked over the electrical & parts diagrams for the QS300 and I do not see a timer listed anywhere. Also, the wiring diagram appears to show that this dishwasher only uses the float to achieve the correct water volume. I could be mistaken here.
Note that in VERY hard water areas (like mine – TDS of 850 hardness or 49 Grains), the plastic fins on the cover of the impeller get very choked up with water salts and this can impede flow, leading to a low-water symptom, when in fact, there is plenty of water.


Dishes Not Cleaning:
Poor Water Flow – See above, all the above items will negatively impact dish cleaning.
Poor Q uality Detergent – After trying them all – Yes, all – Do not use cheap detergent. Buy the brand names: Cascade or Electrasol work well. I have found that by far, the little packs work the best. We found that the liquid works second best and the dry stuff really isn't up to the task at all, no matter which brand.
Spray Wands Catching – We found that our lower spray wand was catching on the bottom of lower dish tray, so I very slightly bent down the legs that the wheels mount to in order to lift the dish tray/basket a little and give the wand a little more room. This worked well.
Spray Wand Nut Too Tight – The factory seems to send the dishwasher out with the nut on the bottom spray wand tightened a little too far. Loosening this a little bit lets the bottom wand rotate much more easily.
Top Spray Wand Not Meeting Receptacle – The top spray wand is attached to a pipe that mates with a port (well, one of two ports, depending on if you have the top rack in the “Upper or “Lower” position). The pipe seems to have a tendency of missing the port. A well placed elastic band will help here. Note that on our dishwasher, by the time the first elastic band wore out, the pipe had been permanently moved to the correct position by the gentle pressure.
Tines/Dish Holders On Top Rack Falling Over – The tines (metal spikes) that hold dishes on the top rack fold down by design. Issue here is that they do it sometimes during the wash, causing the dishes to fall over and block the spray. A few well placed rubber bands help here as well.
Water Salt Buildup – If you live in a very hard water area, you can still get clean dishes from yor dishwasher. We do and we have VERY hard water. Buy a gallon of vinegar once a month. Pour this into a clean dishwasher. Turn it on so that it runs for 2 minutes to circulate the vinegar. Open the door & let stand over night. Close door & finish cycle. This will cut down significantly on the hard water salt buildup in the washer.
It's A Maytag – Sorry folks, it's true. I have learned (after purchasing the dishwasher) that Maytag has run into financial difficulty in recent years and has reduced build quality to save money. If you got suckered into buying one of these, you will very likely never buy one again. My opinion is “Do not by Maytag.”


Hope this helps someone!

Maytag quiet series 300 MDBH955AWW won't clean my dishes!


Hi,

I have this model. They have been recalled due to a heating element problem - possible fire hazard. You need to check to see if the ending letters in the serial are NL. Contact Maytag via website www.repair.maytag.com or the phone 1.800.544.5513. I think I had the same problems as all of you and the solution was to call the pros and find out. I needed to have a special hook-up in my plumbing installed. It was a T fitting or something. The water flow was not coming out right, so it vomitted back down on itself. Basically the plumbing under my sink had to be re-done so the flow was correct. Not problem after that. Good luck, sometimes DIY doesn't always work.

How deep do you want to get into this?It sounds like the wash pump motor bearings that are worn.You can pull the unit out flip it over and wd40 the bearings in the motor or you can replace the bearings.Try to lube them first.

Diswasher motor making noise during wash cycle


It could be the impeller on the motor. The impeller fits over the shaft of the motor and might have split/broken up. That funny noise is probably the shaft spinning inside the damage impeller. Fortunately the impeler is fairly inexpensive and easy to replace. I believe there are one or two parts/covers to remove that are held in by a roughly half dozen torx screws.
