Help! My dishwasher runs thru it's cycles but when I open it I find my second detergent cup still full of soap and my dishes still dirty.

I have a Maytag MDB7100AWW dishwasher that makes a lot of noise from the motor at the end of the drain cycle. When there is water in the dishwasher it doesn't make any noise and washes well. This url (http://www.applianceaid.com/maytag-dish-noise.html) describes my problem exactly but I can't remove this part. I have unscrewed the 3 screws keeping it in place but it seems to be still attached to the motor. How can I remove it?

The note by FixAllPhil entitled "Poor cleaning or noisy pump on Whirlpool or Kenmore dishwasher" has a significant error. The first step should be to "Remove the lower wash arm (1) by turning the nut CLOCKWISE (right)". I damaged the threads on my dishwasher nut by trying to turn it counterclockwise. Once that error is corrected, please remove this post.

My dishwasher spray arms were clogged with calcium buildup so I cleaned one and replaced the other. I also removed the fixed disc-shaped device underneath the lower spray arm and found the particle filter was clogged- so I cleaned it out. The dishwasher ran fine for a few times but then the filter clogged again, and again, and again. Now I need to make a routine of disassembling the parts to get at the filter every week because the filter no longer clears itself during the wash and/or emptying c

Noisey maytag We have a maytag quiet series 300 with the 3 racks. Just recently we have been hearing alot of noise from our dishwasher while it is in the washing and rinsing mode. We have checked the arms to make sure they are moving but doesn't seem to be a problem. Thought maybe there is a liquid that we could pour into the washer to run through it's cycle? Of course we know nothing about the inter works of a dishwasher.

My deceased parents have a GE dishwasher (don't know the model number - can't find it on the machine and can't find the paper work) that stops working shortly you start it and displays a message on the front panel that says "Blocked wash arm - check for wash arm obstruction - restart". We restart it and get the same message shorty thereafter. This happens when the washer is COMPLETELY EMPTY, even when we remove the bottom rack. It first started after several month of inactivity.

The dishes in my dishwasher are not getting clean, particularly on the upper rack. It seems to be because the upper water arms are not spinning during the wash cycle. The bottom spin arm is working fine. I have cleaned out both upper arms as best as I could without removing them (above and attached below to the upper rack), as it does not appear that these arms are easily detachable. I am thinking maybe water is not making it up the line to the upper arms? I also have a lot of dirt in the b

Whirlpool Quiet Wash Plus dishwasher Model DU920PFGZ3. Worked fine until I replaced the insinkerator and forgot to punch the drain plug leaving water standing on the bottom of the machine. I punched the drain opening, and pushed the cancel/drain cycle button. It drained fine but since no water comes from the spray arms. I have removed the arm all the way down..NOTHING!! Some research indicated it could be the water inlet valve. When the buttons are pushed, it cycles but no spray or water.

My maytag dishwasher lower and upper spray arms are working intermittently. Sometimes there is plenty of water spraying around, other times, I can hear what sounds like the motor running but the arms are not moving (or not moving much) and very little water is splashing around. When this happens, the detergent sometimes doesn't even get washed out of its compartment.
