Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes come out dirty

\015 Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher, dishes are dirty, control panel only works some of the time, bad smell coming from dishes and dishwasher. Dishwasher arms turn ok, but dishes come out dirty. Gunk inside glasses and plates grimy. I practically wash them before they go in and still dirty. Our control panel went after 2 years and we had to get a new one and we also got a water softener which was supposed to fix this prob. Nothing works.\015

Answers :

A water softner will not make the dishes any cleaner, it just makes it so they don't have water spots on them.
If the dishes are dirty, it is most likely that the nozzles (holes) in arms may be plugged.
Also check to make sure you are getting plenty of water to dishwasher. Make sure all water valves are full turned open.

If the control panel does not work all the time, it is very likely you have either a shorted wire, or a fualty main board which is very common in newer machines.

We have a Maytag Quiet Series 300 dishwasher (#MDBTT 60AWB) that is in a house we recently bought. A few days ago it worked, but now it won't turn on. We checked the plug that goes into the outlet and it is plugged in. Yesterday we did have a plumber come out and unjam the garbage disposal. I don't know if that could be the source. Is there a reset button on the dishwasher? Basically there is no power going to the dishwasher. Any suggestions?

My Maytag Quiet Series 300 is not cleaning my dishes very well at all. My glasses always have grit left in them (even with Jet Dry), my coffee mugs have film left in the bottom of them and now even my plates and bowls aren't getting clean. I don't even put my pots or pans in there, so I'm not sure where the grit is even coming from. We have city water and I use a powder to clean with. Also, there has always been a film of dirt that never seems to get rinsed away right where the door opens. Also,
