Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Why is the maytag reservoir always full - Dishwashers

\015 \015

Answers :

Most likely the drain hose or sump area / pump are plugged. See if you can locate the hose and use a wet vac to see if you can draw the water through it. If that does not work you can back flush it with a garden hose.

My dishwasher (Maytag MDBH965AWQ quiet series 300 was purchased in May 2006 (making it just a little over 4 years old). The handle broke on it initially and now the control panel has gone out including the start button. The cost of the replacement parts is right around $200, so I don't think it is worth investing that kind of money into it since it seems to be a lemon anyway. I have always been faithful to Maytag. At the time of our kitchen remodel in 2006, we chose all Maytag appliances. I

My Maytag dishwasher is 9 years old-- Model number MDB7100AWW, serial number 27754072ZQ It has worked fine until about a month ago, when I began noticing a kind of "scum" on the silverware and some of the dishes after completing a wash cycle. The top rack will squeak and have some resistance when pulled out, whereas before it always came out smoothly. I have always used powdered Cascade. I've tried using less, thinking I might be putting too much in. Then I got a rinse agent. These thin

Start button flashes 2hr, but will not start the dishwasher, when touched. Also, lights on top of the door are not always functioning. I phoned Maytag and customer service had me turn off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. This did not change the dishwasher. I think that the door latch is not snapping into position, when I open the door.

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

There is always condensation on the inside of the door and some water on the floor of the machine after washing. The main thing is the foul odor that is inside the machine after a day of sitting with dishes in it. I have checked for obstructions and there are none visible and I have washed the little basket. Nothing advised in the manuel seems to help, although the odor problem is not mentioned in the manuel. I HATE THIS DISHWASHER! I wish I had my former, much less expensive Maytag back.

Water leaks from underneath the unit. Water only leaks when the pump cuts on (pressurizes). It leaks down on to the hose connecting to the water inlet valve on the right hand side of the unit when looking at the door of the unit.
