Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDB4000 Built-in Dishwasher ?

Spotty, filmy glasses

\015 I have an 11 year old Magtag (MDB4000AWX) dishwasher that has just started to produce spotty, filming glasses. I have done all the troubleshooting, e.g., is the water hot enough, are you using a rinse aid, is the deterent enough/too much?, etc. Yesterday I ran a dishwasher cleaner through the dishwasher without dishes and then put in a ''good'' glass, but that glass too turned out spotty.\015\012\015\012Is there something else I canj do or is it time for a new dishwasher. Thanks.\015

Answers :

Even if you are sending it 120 degree water from your hot water heater, if the internal heating element has failed, your will get poor cleaning, including a film on your glassware.\015\012
\015\012Replacing the heating element will almost certainly fix the problem.\015\012
