Question about Dishwashers
My machine won't clean my dishes! The food particles are still in my dishes and in the later left in the bottom of the washer after a ( so called ) wash cycle. I researched a little more and discovered that all the sprayer arms are not turning. Water is coming out of them but it seem like there is a loss of pressure. I can't fully tell because I can't watch the dishwasher work while it is running. I took apart the washer all the way down to the moter. I didn't know what to look for. But, I wanted to see how it worked. And see if there was anything clogged in there. I cleaned it up and discovered nothing. Of course I didn't know what to look for in my situation. It did make some loud clicking sounds and grinding noises about a month ago. The machine is about 2 to 3 years old. It doesn't seem like it is draining right or getting enough water pressure. That is my guess. Anybody familiar with my situation? Please help!
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.
