Maytag dishwasher Anyway to convert this model to an adjustable top rack. Wife not happy that taller bottles wont fit on top.


... Dishwashers

The top level is not getting clean. We think the passage to the top water jet is clogged. There are two holes in the back that the washing arm fits into, depending on what level the top rack is set at, and one of them is stuck open. We have not been happy with this dishwasher from the start and are trying to decide if we should get it fixed or just buy a new one.

I had renters in my home and they lowered the top rack and now I do not know how to raise it back up. It is so low my plates do not even fit in the bottwom! How do I raise the top rack?


Look on the sides of the upper rack, if you see tabs press them in while lifting the rack. If you see no tabs look at the side rails, if you see 3 sets of wheels then pull the rack all the way out and set it on the next set of wheels. Good Luck ... Dishwashers

Our top rack is not getting cleaned at all-- although the rinser seems to spin freely when pushed, and fits correctly into the hole back. We were using powder detergent, and a little residue was always left in the compartment. So we tried liquid detergent, to see if it would help, and now it seems like almost none of the detergent is dissolving out, at all. The compartment's full and a goopy mess after each cycle. So now the bottom rack isn't very clean, either! Please advise. Thanks!

I have a Whirlpool Gold Quiet Partner III that is 8 years old and recently stopped cleaning top rack dishes. I remember finding a mylar like piece in the bottom of the tub and threw it away thinking it came off of something we washed (I know, bad thinking.) The mylar piece measured roughly 3-4inx2in and was folded in half. Anyways....the upper arm does not spin and the detergent doesnt get fully dispensed so dishes dont get fully cleaned. I am guessing not enough water pressure to upper arm. Wou

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

Kenmore dishwasher type 573-D, model 665.16034402. Items on top rack don't get washed. Items on bottom rack are washed fine. Appears top sprayer and maybe middle sprayer aren't getting water. At rear of washer, top rubber flapper valve (which feeds middle sprayer when top rack is in raised position) is stuck open, bottom flapper valve looks OK. We use top rack in raised position so this doesn't seem to be the problem.
