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! THE DISHES, CUTLERY, CUPS AND GLASSES DO NOT COME OUT CLEAN! I HAVE TRIED EVERYTHING FROM RELOADING THE DISHWASHER "PROPERLY", TO INCREASING THE WATER TEMPERATURE TO THE HOTTEST SETTING POSSIBLE, TO CHANGING DISH WASHING SOAP

The machine does not seem to rinse properly. We have checked the water fill level, water temperature, spray arms are not clogged, have determined it is not a hard water problem and have tried Glass Magic and CLR to verify the lattter. What else can we check to stop getting a film on everything in the machine? Plastics come out terrible, glasses and dishes foggy and sometimes still greasy. The model # is GU2700XTSY0 from the Whirlpool line of Quiet Partner 4. Any suggestions would help. Thanks!

Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher leaves sediment on dishes (primarily glasses) after running the Autoclean cycle. We've taken it apart, cleaned spray arms, filters, float and replaced some seals, but still have problems. We use Cascade detergent and Jet-Dry (what was recommended when we bought the dishwasher). Our water temperature is 120 degrees (maximum setting we can have without having our tankless water heater modified), but this dishwasher problem was an issue with our old tank water hea

I have error E:15 with a flashing water tap sign - I've tried the following: a) Clean filter at the bottom - now flushes out with b) remove power - return power c) remove and clean fiter for incoming water at a sort of valve Nothing! when I attach power it continues to flush out (even without water) if I put water in it evacuates without problems. The tap does supply water I've check and with more than sufficent flow and pressure! ...Help .....Thanks Gary


Hello Gary,\015\012\015\012You didn't specify the brand or model number of the dishwasher, but I suspect it's a Bosch, in which case the E:15 error with the flashing tap sign and the drain pump running continuously means the anti-flood pr ... Dishwashers

The top rack isn't getting clean. Could this be a pressure problem our an internal problem? It's not whishing like it used to. The water isn't reaching into the glasses. I think the only water getting to the top rack is what is sprayed onto the bottom rack dishes.

Cloudy Dishes This condition suddenly started after couple of years. Water heater is 7 yrs old, never drained, therefore I think this could be the problem. I am going to drain it and report. I do have a whole-house water filter which I change out monthly or every other month. My guess is that without it, this problem would have surfaced long ago.

It always seems like it never gets enough water to even make the spray arms work. I have even tried to make sure I am not running any hot water in the house. It is about 7 months old and has always acted this way. Could there be something wrong with the installation? My old Sears never had this problem.


Sounds to me as if there is a blockage in the water line supplying the dishwasher or a kink in the water line supplying the unit. Since the water is supplied from the angle stop under the sink there could be blockage at that point. What I would sug ... Dishwashers

My SE53200GB/01 fails to input water. I have checked the inlet supply hoses and filters and they are clear. I have tried different programmes and they all activate but the water fails to enter the main chamber. Any ideas what may be the problem. Could the Aqua-Stop mechanism have kicked in and if so, how do I rectify it? Thanks

Hello, Im trying to diagnose poor cleaning of glasses in the top rack of my Fridigaire FDB751SCB0. everything seems to work fine but while testing I noticed the upper arm isn't spinning. the lower arm is. i believe the pump is working as water is spayed everywhere inside but no matter which position I leave the upper arm in, I find it in the same place when I open the door. what could cause the upper arm to not get water preventing it from spining?


Hello; first thing to check, which you don't mention, is which side of the glasses aren't coming clean; the outside, which would be caused by the TOP spray not working properly, or the INSIDE, which would be caused by the spray BELOW the top rack not ... Dishwashers

We recently purchased a Whirlpool ADP 4736 dishwasher, and just last night while it was working the fuse just blew, and we heard a popping sound at the back of the washer. We tried to replace the fuse, but the same problem. rnAlso, there a lot of water has collected at the bottom of the washer, although the dishes have been cleaned and dry.

Dishwasher sounds like it is running normally, (no grinding sounds or anything)but there doesn't appear to be any water coming into the machine. we checked to see if there was a kink in the line or if perhaps it was a plumbing problem but that does not seem to be the case. I know the circular disk in the front of the machine needs to be down and it is, so can you figure out without seeing for yourself what could be the problem and if so is it worth fixing since I can probably replace it for und

My tappan dishwasher is only 1 1/2 yr old and its not getting at least 1/2 of dishes clean. We have tried everything from changing to liquid soap, increasing water pressure at meter, not using while washing clothes. We used a dishwasher cleaner to remove calcium, and run hot water in sink before using. We know the wand, pump and drain are working. It is model TDB210RFB5 with 1.1A motor. Is the motor too small to clean dishes? I wish I could get my money back or exchange for an upgrade. Thanks!

Hi, We have a new whirlpool dishwasher type no. 575-0. GU2275X TVQO. We have not been able to get clean dishes since purchase. Water is hot, everything seems to be operating smoothly.

The adapter on my maytag portable dishwasher comes off the faucet when I try to run it sending water everywhere! We JUST replaced the adapter and hoses, $50 and not the problem. It seems that the plastic pieces (not metal balls) are wearing out as soon as they're used. Does anybody know what I can do or if that isn't the problem, could it be that I have the wrong end on my faucet????? HELP!!


If you just replaced the connector and it won't stay on, replace the adaptor on the faucet. ... Dishwashers

My dishwasher is not filling with water i have tried the water tap and checked the hose pipe it has been working no problem for about 3 years does that mean its wear and tear of the machine ? or could it be something else?
