Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher: soap problem

\015 I have a Maytag jetclean eq plus dishwasher. Once in a while, the soap get stuck in the dispenser. Result, dishes not clean and soap everywhere.Thanks!\015

Answers :

This could be due to 2 problems: not enough water or water is not being pumped hard enough through the system. The 'not enough water' is easy to check - open the door in the middle of a wash cycle. If you have enough water (about 1" or more) then that is probably ok. The 'not pumping hard enough' could be as simple as plugged up filters and holes in the spray arms. Remove the racks and disassemble the lower spray arm and the filter assembly all the way down past the screen. Clean the arm holes, throughly clean the screen, clean everything. Pull the top spray arm and throughly clean the spray holes there. Put it all together and run a cycle. You should see a pronounced increase in the sound of the water spraying around. This should fix your problem - it did for me.
I have the same dishwasher and have had the same problem. What I've personally observed, however, is that sometimes a long utensil in the silverware basket prevents the soap dispenser door from opening. Simply make sure the long items are not placed in the basket closest to the soap dispenser door.

Our Maytag Jetclean Dishwasher EQ Plus will not turn on (MDB9150AWS) and we cannot find a repair manual to troubleshoot through the problem. Maytag does not offer repair manuals on this model. Any suggestions?


Try this. From what I have found Maytag discontinued the Repair manual but it appears that all MDB and MDC models fell under this one repair manual.\015\012\015\012\015\012http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?mod ... Dishwashers

WE HAVE HAD NOTHING BUT PROBLEMS WITH OUR MAYTAG DISHWASHER RIGHT FROM DAY ONE. WE WERE TOLD IT WAS ONE OF THE BEST DISHWASHERS ON THE MARKET AT THE TIME, CONSUMER'S REPORT ALSO HAD REPORTED THE SAME AND THAT SOLD US. I WILL NEVER EVER PURCHASE ANOTHER MAYTAG DISWASHER!
