Maytag Jetclean Super Quite Plus II Dishwasher

My dishes will not come clean. Everything seems to be working, the water comes in and sprays around etc. but the dishes continue to be dirty. I have even taken it all apart and cleaned it out -- but that did not help. Please help.

    Hi, we have a Kenmore dishwasher 665 13743k601. It has not been getting the dishes very clean for a while and now the motor is extremely loud when I turn it on. We have taken the dishwasher apart and checked the bottom screen, rubber flap and cleaned the bottom-everything looks good. Any ideas?

Open the door when working and check the spray arms are rotating. if not, the jets in the spray arms may be blocked. very fiddly to clear but doable

My spray arms were clogged solid. I removed them, soaked in CLR for 15 minutes, was able to poke through solid crystalline plugs in the spray holes of top and bottom spray arm with a toothpick, and rinsed out all the debris. From then on, I used CLR every two months or so, adding recommended amount at the time of the cycle it recommended on the bottle of CLR.

Soap gets clotted is soap dispenser. Dishes greasy and dirty after cycle.


Hi, the soap is clotting because there isn't enough water being sprayed around inside. The water spray washes the soap out of the dish, if all is working well. My machine had the same problem. I had sufficient water level, but the spray head wasn't spinning very well. I found the end-most hole in the spray bar to be plugged. It is the end hole that provides a jet that makes the head spin. I cleaned a bunch of debris out of the hole and the machine started working and cleaning like it was new.

Dishes come out dirty like trap needs tobe cleaned kenmore 565


Hi



If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes.


Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Put dirty stuff in will eventually keep a tech like me very busy. We love to come and charge you alot for cleaning your dishwasher. Remember the Maytag commercials where they put a cake in it? Still got the dishes clean but before long it will cost you big time. Just run everything under the tap. Pot and pans should be lightly washed also. Watch how you place the dishes. Most dishwashers spray up from the bottom. Block it, and the spray will not reach the top.

Dishes are cloudy and have soap residue. Have cleaned upper &lower spray arm often, as good as posible (find holes plugged). water level & temp. seems normal . Water intake screen appears clean


Clean the spray arm jet holes if they are blocked. Check whether you have filled the rinse-aid dispenser.

Check whether arm turns freely when rotated by hand manually.
