Having problems with your Maytag 24 in. MDB6600A Jetclean II Built-in Dishwasher ?

Diswasher doesnt clean and leaves

\015 Maytag dishwasher, less than two years old. Doesnt clean very well. Cups, especialy ceramic ones on top shelf have a grimes and gunk caked into them at end of cycle. SOmetimes not all, washer makes a grinding sound when it starts up, seems unrelated to washing problem. i use a solid pellet type of dishwashing detergent (Electrasol) and have rinsed with vinegar which is only partially helpful, first wash is cleaner but not spotless. MDB6601 use liquid soap and jet dry but glasses still have sand size food particles that dont rise off. Unit drains intirely, makes no strange noises and was installed in 2007. Ran ok for first year but now it takes 2 cycles to get clean and usually end up hand washing them anyway.So why do I need dishwasher.\015

We used our LG diswasher to clean our grill grates, which was a bad idea, because now the unit will not clean the dishes. We cleared the washer arms of debris, but the unit still is leaving the dishes on both racks dirty and is leaving the liquid soap dispensed into the unit undissolved on the door of the unit. There are no kinks in the water inlet, and water is getting into the unit, but the dishes are not getting cleaned.
