I have a Maytag dishwasher, Model MDB4100. Are there directions for removing the cleaning equipment in the bottom of the dishwasher? I do have the manual and there are no instructions to do this. I am getting scummy buildup around the drain and suspect it needs a good thorough cleaning that I can't do without taking it apart. I have tried to clean away the "gook" but it reappears after a few washes and I can't reach the back. Thank you, Cara

I have a Maytag Dishwasher MDB4100aww that is not cleaning dishes effectively. There are small particles of food left on the dishes and some of the tougher food items to clean are staying on the dishes. The sound of water swishingspraying within the dishwasher seems to be quieter than when originally purchased (about 8 years passed). I had a local repair man take apart some of the internal pieces and clean them but it has not helped. Any suggestions?

My Kenmore dishwasher cleans some of the dishes, but not all of them. I think the lower arm is partially clogged. The upper arm seems okay. How can I take this apart to check for clogs.


Generally, the lower spray arm is easily removed by unscrewing a nut or thumb screw on the top of the arm. The arm will lift off easily and you can flush it at your kitchen sink. I sometimes have to take a toothpick, a brush, and/or tweezers to remov ... Kenmore Dishwashers

MAYTAG MDBH979AWS DOES NOT SEEM TO FILL WITH WATER, AND HAS STOPPED CLEANING THE DISHES..My husband took everything apart and we cleaned each piece and put it back together , there was no indication that anything was clogged, and he was able to determine that water was coming in to the washer, but dishes are still dirty. There seems to be soap residue on the bottom of the tub. We also check to see if it was draining properly and that was fine also. Any other suggestions?

My dishwasher does not sound correct (lack of spraying action sound) and this last time when I opened the door the soap had not disolved and the dishes where still dirty. I have taken apart the bottom arm before for a cleaning but it was only a couple of weeks ago. Could it clog up again so fast even when the type of dishes remain the same? Did I put it back together wrong? Maytag EQ Plus

My Whirlpool Gold dishwasher has been wonderful until recently. In the last 2-3 weeks, the top rack of dishes does NOT get clean - AT ALL. It appears that the spray arm is not moving, or at least not moving much. What can I do myself to check this out and possibly take things apart to see if something is clogged?

I have an LG ldf7811st dishwasher. My bottom arm spins with water, my middle arm does not spin but does have water coming out, and my top arm doesn't spin or have water. I have just finished taking apart the arms, the supply to the upper arms, the filters and the impeller. I cleaned everything and nothing really seemed clogged. I have tested it since and it still has the same problem. I know that they aren't spinning because i placed them in a certain position before i ran the test run. They


I'm thinking like you're thinking, that it's something affecting the water pressure, but you've done everything in the upper section, so the problem must be from below, unless you have a leak somewhere you haven't noticed and are losing pressure beca ...

Clogged filter I have a Maytag JetClean EQ Plus (model number MDB9150AWS) and the filter under the lower arm is clogged and I don't know how to clean it. I can remove the filter, but it has several "windows" covered in mesh in which I can see debris, but I can't figure out how to open these "windows" to clean them. And how can I prevent the clogging to begin with?


Hi, The mesh does not open. You will need to GENTLY clean each section with running water. Are you using powder or liquid soap?The most common thing that plugs them is food particles. This unit is best served by pre-rinsing the dishes. The mess ... Maytag 24 in. MDB9150A Built-in Dishwasher

My dishwasher was not getting the dishes clean, so i started taking the lower end apart to clean, got to a gray wheel looking object with a screw in the top which was recessed and still the wheel looking object will not come off, it will spin but will not come off, I need to finish taking it off because I dropped a screw down in the bottom area where the water settles.

I have a GLD 4456R00CS dishwasher that is maybe 6 months old. It seems to cycle properly, but has never really cleaned the dishes. This is the worst dishwasher we've ever had (over 25 years) and I'm ready to take it to the street. I've cleaned the screen (was already clean), checked the spray bars for clogs (removed, sprayed water through it, and replaced), and looked for any other obvious problem.

I had a mouse get into the under part of the dishwasher. He/she/it got trapped and died. The smell made us aware of the problem. I had to take apart the bottom of the dishwasher and take out all the tubes to clean them. Very messy... My question...I took care to note where all the wires went, but somehow did not take care to note where all the tubes go. Can you advise or show a schematic.
