Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDB5651A Built-in Dishwasher ?

My dishwasher has not been cleaning well over the last few months. Ive tried different dewtergents but it seems more to do with the operation. How do I figure out whats going on?


Answers :

Hi

If you are noticing that the dishes are not clean, then there are a few things to check for. Check the soap powder if it's kept in a dry environment. Also try replacing the powder with something like a gel or liquid. Next thing to check for is the water pressure and fill valve. Check if the water is filling in and the spray arms are throwing the water with enough pressure. Try and listen to the sound if you hear a proper spraying action sound.

If it seems as a low water pressure then check the fill valve. Now, check if dishwasher is draining the water or not. While the dishwasher is working check whether the dishwasher is draining and there is not much left out water after the cycle is complete. Try cleaning the spray arm with a soft brush. The water temperature plays a major role in cleaning of dishes. The temp should be between 125 and 150 F for dishwasher to clean the dishes. Hope this helps...

My miele diswasher seems to be stuck on rinse cycle and will not advance...keeps draining and refilling. Can't figure out how to reset and restart new cycle, to clear the snag. What's going on? I have cleaned all the filters in bottom of unit per operating manual. Wish I still had my GE, where you could reset the unit...no button to do that on this overpriced unit.

Whirlpool Quiet II (DU110XTPB1)... Two problems (maybe it's one)... Start/resume light flashing and won't stop. I have tried on the different button combinations from this website and other websites and none of them seem to make a difference. The flashing continues. That's problem number one. Problem number two is that it seems to go into some sort of washing cycle in completely random intervals. When it's in one of the random washing cycles the following lights are on; Normal Soak and scour

The unit goes through its cycles but the top rack is not getting clean. The bottom spray wheel works, the middle and top spray arms are getting water but it seems not enough to make them rotate. The pump screens are clear and there seems to be enough water. Whats going on?

Hello, my Bosch Classixx dishwasher SGS43E42EU/21 has me stumped. It starts by taking in water but when "filled" pumps out for a couple of seconds then refills for say 10 seconds more before another 2 or 3 seconds of pumping out. This cycle continues for ages without starting to wash. I've tried various things: - checked the Auto Stop valve isn't being activated by leakage (removing the polystyrene float and bottom tray makes no difference - there's no leak) - the valve seems to operate it

My Kitchen Aid KUDS01DJSS0 seems to have water going to the upper spray arm (I see water coming out of the unit just beneath the upper rack), but the pressure doesn't seem to be high enough to clean the upper rack.

My lower rack will not clean bowls or cups and I have to be very careful how I place plates. The serviceman has been out twice and I have run vinegar through multiple times with no improvement. My top rack is working fine. I have tried running it on different settings and we have verified that the lower wash arm seems to be spinning. The temperature seems to be fine. Even glasses placed on the lower rack that weren't very dirty seem to have a scum in them when finished. Any ideas?

GE PDW7300 dishwasher - must slam the door shut to get a light on the panel and when the START button is pressed, it looks like the dishwasher is cycling thru a wash, but there is no water. When I press the START cycle again, it seems like it thinks its pumping the water out for a few minutes, then the light will go off. If I start it again and push really hard against the door, I can hear the water go on. But if I stop pushing the door, the water stops. The dishwasher was installed in 2001, but
