Our Maytag model MDB4010AWW (8 1/2 years old) is leaving food stuck on the dishes and glasses on the top rack consistently. We've run several bottles of Dishwasher Magic through in the past few weeks which has only helped the problem a little. We posted this question to a similar forum a few weeks ago, and it was suggested that the wash pump might need replacement. What's the average life expectancy of a lowend dishwasher like ours? would it be more cost effective to replace it rather than to sp


It would cost you at least the 200.00 to have it replaced since the pump cost 150.00 and you would have labor added. It should last longer than it did if that's what's wrong with it. I would first observe to see if the upper spray arm is spinning and ... Dishwashers

My dish washer isn't cleaning the dishes well. There are little particals inside of every cup and on dishes after it is done. I just emptied and and now I'm running it with bleach. But before I started it I looked at the drain hose under the sink. The drain hose had water in it. The drain hose is going uphill from the dishwasher to the sink so I don't know if this is normal to have some water in the drain hose when the washer completes since it's not would have to pump uphill to get to the garba

I stopped using my dishwaser because it left crusted on food particals even tho I rinced them well(so I thought) before loading. It was as if they were just being dried crusty. After a couple month I noticed a bad smell. I looked in the dishwasher to find standing water in the bottom. I ran a little CLR through and it cleared out. But a couple weeks later again there was water in the bottom. It seems as if the water from the sink is draining into the washer. If I run it it runs thru just fine, n

Dishwasher drain is hooked to a food disposer and until recently the unit worked fine. Last week following a cycle a couple of inches of water did not drain out. All food is removed from dishes, silverware, etc. prior to loading and the food trap in the bottom is completely clear. I ran the unit empty through a Lightwash cycle and afterwards the water level (that which didn't drain out) looked to be the same as before. The dishwasher is run 2-3 times weekly whereas the food disposal is

I have no power to the dishwasher. I tried the circuit breaker, flipped it. No lights on, nothing.
