Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

My older model Maytag Jetclean doesn't clean.

\015 We bought a house. Old ladies obviously have not used this thing in years. It will run, but leaves white residue on dishes and barely gets them clean. Tried one vinegar rinse with little success. Cannot afford a new one. Any ideas? I can't really make out the model number it is that old. possibly a W or V U104? Has a knob. Does not say Plus on it. Many thanks in advance!\015

Answers :

The white residue may be lime from the water coming into the house (and, obviously the machine). Run some COLD water into a large clear glass pitcher and let it stand overnight. If there is lime it should settle overnight to the bottom of the pitcher. If no residew, get some commercial dishwasher cleaner and run the machine full hot and on all cycles at least 3 times to thoroughly clean it out...Good luck!

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

I am trying to find what model number our dishwasher is so I can try and find a part for it. It says on the front Maytag Jetclean dishwasher quiet plus. I know its an older one but we are renting and I don't know when they installed it.

I have a maytag jetclean quiet pack dishwasher. The top dishes are not getting clean. The glasses always have sandy residue in them and sometimes orange juice etc at the bottom of the glass isn't removed. I have added jet dry, this doesnt work. I ran the rinse cycle today and opened it up during the cycle and I didn't see the middle pop up spin thing in the middle of the bottom shelf doing anything. It should be spraying during the rinse cycle correct? Thanks for your help


Possible that the pump is not working well to spray and inject with good pressure so that the dishes are spot clean.\012You will need to simulate the washer without any dish and checck the performance to understand the fault areas.\012The ... Maytag Dishwashers

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

My Maytag dishwasher model #MDB4650AWW bought in 2005 has developed several ongoing problems. The first is that the dishes get clean but there is always sandy dirty dried bits left on the glasses. The utensils are clean and the dishes in the bottom rack are clean but the glasses also have this "residue" left on them. I have tried different detergents and rinse agents.

I am getting a clicking/ticking noise (1 click/second) from my Maytag (model MDB9100)dishwasher after it goes through its auto clean normal wash cycle. At the end of the cycle the arrow = clean and the clicking sound is there. I opened the washer door for about 1 minute noted the soap containers are empty, dishes clean, machine still hot/steamy. Closed the washer door and the clicking sound resumes. Please advise.


This is the heated dry timer going through the drying cycle until the dishes are dry. The dry cycle runs on a timer and it will click through the cycle until it finishes the amount of time preset on the timer to dry the dishes. ... Maytag MDB9100A Dishwasher

Maytag MDBH965AWQ I have a Maytag dishwasher model number MDBH965AWQ. A few weeks ago the clean and sanitized lights would not go off after the door had been left open for over 30 seconds.

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
